Old Computer 1999-2000

I have a question on how to get into windows 98 without using a mouse. I was attempting to set up Jessica’s old computer, and for some reason it is not recognizing any mouse I use? I tried every combination? What is does when I turn the computer on it loads up DOS first. Then it does a virus scan cause the computer was not turned off properly. Then it gives me a “Warning” symbol saying that it does not recognize the mouse? The other weird part is that when the mouse is plugged in the red light at the bottom of the mouse is on, so I know it is connected correctly? I know this is probably a really crappy description but I thought I would try.
I think the problem is that, if I can find a way to shut down the computer properly. Without the mouse, I am pretty sure it will recognize the mouse if I can do that?............any thoughts?

Well, check your BIOS..disable your virus scan then save the settings then restart your computer.

Keyboard works, but where can I find an actual booklet to help me learn about this keyboard because e-machines did not have one and I have been using another keyboard/mouse set since I bought the computer....


At first you have to uninstall drivers of your old keyboard.

After connect your new keyboard and install drivers which came with your keyboard.

If there is no drivers came with keyboard, let windows automatically detect your keyboard and mouse and install drivers.

Good morning, I have a windows 98 os, mouse (m-rn67) stopped working. no luck using newer mice, doesn't recognize. can i update computer using usb w/driver for newer mouse?

Hi janettgordon,
I am not exactly sure what you mean by "can i update computer using usb w/driver for newer mouse", but if you want to know if you can update the USB component of Windows 98 I regret to say to you that it's not possible.
USB support on Windows 98 always been tricky and Microsoft never officially supported it before Windows 98 SE. I don't know what version you have, but either way USB support under Windows 98 never been great. You also need to keep in mind that Windows 98 is quite an old system and no recent hardware like mouse, keyboard, printers is supported on it anymore.
My advise would be to upgrade your current Windows installation to Windows XP or Windows 2000. A friend can probably lend you a copy and I'm 100% positive that it will solve your problem with newer mices. You will need to make sure your computer can handle Windows XP or 2000, but they can run under pretty old hardware so it should not be a problem.

Need software for win98. Seller never mentioned OS restriction.

Microsoft officially stopped supporting Windows 98/ME/NT in July 2008,
and stopped supporting Windows 2000 in July 2010.

Thus, any hardware (such as the mouse) first manufactured since 2008 will _NOT_ be supported.

Try a different mouse, or try a Google-search, to see if somebody has some advice about "forcing" Windows 98 to recognize the mouse.

Or, upgrade your computer to Windows XP, or buy a new computer with Windows 7.

The mouse appears to be on but the pointer on the screen does not move. The keyboard is still working. The re-set button does not correct the problem. Re-booting the computer does not work.

The same thing happened to me today. Somehow, something uninstalled my setpoint mouse software?!?!
While I was actually using the mouse?!?!
(it just stopped moving all of a sudden)

Don't ask me how/why this happened but I fixed it by unplugging the MX1000--both power and usb connection, plugging in an old serial mouse, rebooting the computer, opening mouse properties, going to the Mouse settings (in Control Panel), clicking the Setpoint tab, telling it to look for an update to the Setpoint program, letting it download and install the program automatically, then unplugging the old serial mouse, plugging in the MX1000 (usb first, them Power) and Voila'! Working as it should once again, even without a reboot. :o)
I love this mouse--perfect size, fast, programmable, accurate, long battery life, Perfect!

Cannot use the double click feature on my mouse

To modify the mouse settings, open the property sheet using Start > Control Panel > Printers and Other Hardware > Mouse and select the Buttons tab as shown below. Check boxes and sliders allow the necessary modifications to be performed.
There is even a Click Lock function that is very handy for those that have trouble holding down the mouse button while using the drag and drop function.
The button configuration and Double-click speed settings must be set properly. Then it can solve your double-click problem.

Driver for v220 logitech mouse os win 98


I'm afraid the USB mouses will not work on windows 98, please use the adapter so it fits into a ps2 port. (the old mouse plug) then of course you can check the logitechs website if they offer any drivers for windows 98 but its very unlikely.

Actually I looked myself and the oldest they offer is xp.,en

so it would be a good time to buy a new computer, yours must be around 12 years old. considering that 5 year old machine is considered old, your 12year old machine is ancient.

How to program my new Keyboard cordless desktop S510

When I bought my s510 recently I couldn't use the function keys even with the software that came with the keyboard and mouse.

I had to actually download new logitech software for the s510 which allowed me to use the function/extra keys.

Navigate to:,EN

On the right hand side of the screen you will see 'Support Center' below it click 'Downloads,'
From there you can choose your OS w98 and language and download the software you need to get your keyboard working the way it should.
