Question about Shuttle HOT-591P (MB591P) Motherboard

1 Answer

Mainboard does not recognize the PS/2 mouse

The mouse has been connected to one of the serial port connectors from the beginning. There is no indication that anything is wrong except the mouse no longer works. I've tried another mouse but it isn't responded to either.

I wonder whether or not adding a cable connected to the PS/2 Mouse Pin Header would work? If so, where I can get such a cable? (The same question applies to the use of the USB Pin Header.)

Sounds like the serial port died. I have seen that happen before. You could try a DB9 to PS/2 adapter or DB9 to USB. The DB9 to PS/2 is cheaper of the 2.

Hope this helps.

    Does the labtec wireless mouse turn itself off when not in use


    Hi,
    You should always safely shut down and turn off your computer before plugging or unplugging the mouse from the PS/2 mouse port. If you do not safely turn off your computer, you may damage the mouse port, the mouse, or both.

    Your Labtec mouse should detect and function by simply connecting it to the computer´s PS/2 mouse port or USB port. If you have 3 Button Labtec Mouse (M/N: M-CAC64), your mouse will work in the PS/2 and serial port with the supplied adaptor. If you are using the 3 Button Labtec mouse, we recommend using the PS/2 port. To determine the model number of your device, turn it upside down and look at the label. Model numbers are indicated by "M/N:". This will help you determine what system ports your Labtec mouse can be connected to.

    Thank you

    It could be a bad Trackman or a bad PS/2 Port.

    1st test if it's the port by trying another mouse, or by trying this Trackman in another known working PS/2 port on another computer.  (don't forget to reboot each time you plug in a PS/2 device)

    2nd, you can try using a PS/2 to USB adaptor.

    Mouse wont work , I have put new batteries in & have also looked in control panel which says it is working ... Red light is on. HELP...


    Recommendation:
    • Make sure that the mouse is connected physically to the correct port and that it is not loose.
    • Check the mouse wire to make sure it has not been excessively twisted, bent or damaged in any way.
    • If you have another mouse that you can try in place of this one, try swapping them and see if the problem goes away. Similarly, you might want to try your mouse on another PC and see if it works. (Remember that drivers are often specific to certain types of mice; you want to swap with another mouse of the same type, using the same interface, either serial or PS/2).
    • If this is a new PC, check this section for troubleshooting possible general problems. In particular, there may be a loose or incorrectly connected internal cable to the COM port that you are using for the mouse.
    • If you are using a PS/2 style mouse, make sure it is not connected to the (identically-sized) PS/2 keyboard connector. This of course will also make the keyboard not work properly.
    • If you are using a serial mouse, you may have a problem with the serial port itself. Resource conflicts and other problems with the serial port are fairly common. Look here.
    • If you just upgraded your motherboard and now your mouse is not visible, a likely cause is that you left the old cables that attached from the serial port connectors to the motherboard headers in place. These cables are not universal, and you might now have the wrong kind installed for your new motherboard.
    • If you are using a PS/2-style mouse, remember that the mouse uses IRQ12. In some situations, this may cause a resource conflict with another device. Check here for more on resource conflicts.
    • If you are trying to use a PS/2-style mouse on a serial port, or a serial mouse on a PS/2 port, you must use a so-called "combo" mouse. These are specially designed to be able to handle the different electrical signals that are used by the two different mice. Some mice will fit the adapters physically but will not function correctly because they cannot handle the different signaling levels required;

    Belkin KVM STandard 9 pin mouse/keyboard to USB COnversion


    You need to have the keyboard connecter (purple) connected to your computer in order for the KVM switch to recognize it. The computer is providing some power through the keyboard connector and this is what the KVM switch is feeding on.

    If you have a USB keyboard, you may want to change your KVM for a USB compatible one. If you just want to use the KVM to switch your monitor, you may plug the keyboard (purple) connector of the KVM to your computer's keyboard PS/2 port and also connect you USB keyboard directly to your computer. It should work.

    Serial port?


    There are two basic ways to work around this situation: * Use a PS/2 mouse instead of a serial mouse. Using a PS/2 mouse will free up your serial port so that you can connect the camera to the computer. Check the computer's documentation to see if this type of mouse is available for your system. * Enable MouseKeys on your computer. MouseKeys allows you to use the numeric keypad to move the mouse pointer and to click, double-click and drag. After enabling MouseKeys, you can disconnect the serial mouse and connect the camera to the computer. Click Here to see an animated demonstration, or follow the instructions below. To enable MouseKeys: 1. From the Windows toolbar, select Start > Settings > Control Panels. 2. Double-click the Accessibility Options icon. 3. Select the Mouse tab. 4. Select Use MouseKeys and change settings, if desired. 5. Click OK.
