Adapter for scroll mouse

I have just bought a GE scroll mouse with a PS2 connection. Now I have to find an adapter so I can use it USB on my laptop. I have a USB-to-PS2 adapter, but I need one that goes the other way - PS2 to USB. Any ideas where I can buy one of these?.

How do I connect the mouse?

i am assuming you have a usb mouse and a PS2 connection on the computer. If this is the case then you need a female usb to ps2 mouse adapter
So that the mouse cable plugs into the USB female connection and the male ps/2 plug end goes int othe female ps2 port on the computer.
If this is the case you have the wrong converter the chester will convert a ps/2 on the mouse or keyboard to a usb on the back of the computer.. Can you tell us what sort of mouse you are trying to connect does the end of the cable have a usb plug on it a bit like the blue usb plug in your picture.
If this is the case then you need a female usb to ps2 mouse adapter
Google it and see the difference.

If you are trying to convert your Logitech Trackman Marble FX from PS2 to USB so it will work with Windows 7, you can't just convert the port type - you have to get an "adapter" that converts the PS2 signal to a USB signal. See for ATen - UC 100KMA. WEB SIte:

It allows you to convert a PS2 keyboard and PS2 mouse/trackball with the one device. It's what I use and it works just fine. The regular $2.00 port adapter was useless.

They are on EBAY sometimes for $20 or so. GOOD LUCK. :)

I am trying to use my Dell keyboard with my Toshiba laptop through a PS2 to a USB adapter. The message is that the USB is not recognized.


I would believe that it could be the Ps2/USB adapter is broken. From personal experience I have never found a Ps2 to usb adapter not to work. I used it for multiple devices on both ends (using it on Ps3 with a PS2 keyboard or mouse, for example).

It's also the dell keyboard is defunct.

I purchased a GE PS2 mouse.


when plugging in a PS2 device you need to reboot computer as it only looks for PS2 devices during boot unlike USB devices.

I have a new Dell computer, which has no PS2 port.


No, unfortunatly there is none unless you specificaly ask Dell for a usb driver.

It's a common myth that users think USB has built in drivers in it's hardware. The only resolution to this issue is to ask the manufacturer for a new driver for this specific item to run under usb.

Yes you can get a ps2 connector to usb. They sell them at Radioshack and some Walmarts. What computer are you using the brand and model? The ps2 connector should fit into the one on the tower, unless its a really old computer.

How do i connect my PS2 with my PC


on the back of your computer box, you will (probably) find 2 ports that look like this. the PS2 mouse will be plugged into the green colored port. NOTE: PS2 mice (and keyboards) will only fit into the port ONE DIRECTION, so don't force it! make sure to line it up

once plugged in, you will need to reboot your computer, as PS2 can only be recognized while the computer is starting up.

one final note: some of the newest computers DO NOT have PS2 ports. if this is true of your computer, you will need to get a new mouse, or an adapter, like the one shown below:b6b70e7.jpg
