Question about HP Computers & Internet
Basically, no special driver is needed for a PS/2 mouse on Windows 98SE. Microsoft generic driver, which is bundled with Windows installation should work for you. If it doesn't get installed automatically, choose to select location - and make it search for the driver in Windows installation CD; in C:\Windows or C:\Windows\system32 or C:\Windows\System.
If it fails, follow the instructions written here.
If nothing worked for you, there are 2 options:
1) The mouse is faulty. Unplug it and make sure there are no bended/broken pins in the connector.
2) The PS/2 connector on the motherboard is faulty. It's a common problem of those connectors going bad... Try a different PS/2 mouse to see if you manage to get any PS/2 mouse to work.
As a last resort, use a USB mouse. Again, in this case, the embedded driver should do the job perfectly.
Contact me if you need any further assistance...
PS: When reconnecting a PS/2 device (KB or mouse), a full restart is required for Windows 98 to recognize it!!
