No Mouse

By steve.doig ·
I have a mouse not working after I replaced
the motherboard. Under system properties,
the mouse is "either not present, not
working, or the drivers are not all
installed. Reinstalling the drivers doesn't
seem to work. I have tried using a working
ISA serial port card. Should I reinstall
windows?

1. Check connection cable from ISA card to connector.
2. In BIOS disable or change COM1 & COM2 ports, or configure you ISA card to other port (not 3F8 for COM1 & not 2F8 to COM2).
3. Don't use ISA card for COM ports. Use integrated on motherboard COM ports.

If you can navigate through Windows (95/98/NT/2K ?) without the mouse, try removing the "Mouse & other pointing device" from Device Manager. Shut down. Remove the serial card that you installed. Restart Windows. Windows will detect the Mouse and will install the driver from Windows CD. Have the Windows CD ready.

Enjoy!

If the motherboard is an ATX with a PS/2 mouse port built-in, you'll want to check the BIOS settings for the PS/2 port. If you'll be using a PS/2 mouse, make sure they are enabled; otherwise disable them to eliminate a potential conflict.

If youare using a com port on the motherboard, make sure the cable is properly installed - it is usually physically possible to install the cable backwards or with only half the pins engaged, and that the port is properly enabled in the BIOS.

If none of that works, there was an excellent posting on this forum a couple weeks ago for solving WIndows mouse problems and you might be able to find it by searching the forum archives.

Have you check whether the mouse is working in a different computer? If that mouse didn't want to work on a different computer either, most probably the mouse is dead. Maybe a broken cable or pin might have cause it.
