    PS2 Mouse doesnt work in combination with USB Keyboard


    by irishal0 ·

    Hello, firstly I have tried to search for a solution to this problem using Google & the search facility on the discussion page but with no success so I hope someone can help.
    I recently purchased a new Dell USB keyboard for my desktop PC. Previously I had a PS/2 keyboard and still use a PS/2 mouse. The problem is that the new USB keyboard works fine but the PS/2 mouse has stopped responding (power LED is on). I restarted the PC with old PS/2 keyboard plugged in again & new USB keyboard also plugged in and this time the mouse worked again, then I unplugged the PS/2 keyboard and mouse still worked, restarted the PC and again the mouse had stopped working.

    I’m running Vista.

      Try reposting this in the ‘Q&A’ forum. The ‘Discussion’ forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution. The ‘Water Cooler’ is for non-technical discussions. You can submit a question to ‘Q&A’ here:;content

      There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you’ll find more of those members in ‘Q&A’ than in ‘Discussions’ or ‘Water Cooler’.

      Be sure to use the voting buttons to provide your feedback. Voting a ‘+’ does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours. If they have a ready source of reference available, perhaps won’t need to repeat questions previously asked and answered. If a post did contain the solution to your problem, you can also close the question by marking the helpful post as “The Answer”.
