Mouse drivers for serial DB9 hookup

I have a Dexxa 3 button mouse, model 9F with the serial DB9 bus hookup.
I am looking for drivers to operate this in windows 98 or XP. The original drivers came on a 5 1/2 floppy which I no longer have. I have read in a few articles that Microsoft Intellie point mouse drivers might work, but I have not downloaded or tried them at this point.


Please help,
Thanks

When you change the left mouse pointer to be the right mouse pointer in the settings of the mouse, then if the right mouse button stops working, it is a software problem and reinstalling drivers is the way to go. If on the otherhand the left mouse button still does not respond, then there is a problem with the switch in the mouse. This is hardware related. Either clean the mouse or buy a new one.

Tip

USB devices not recognised or not working properly?


Try these steps to reinitialize your usb ports on your pc

1. Unplug ALL USB devices connected to the computer. If you are using a USB mouse and keyboard, temporarily use the older type PS/2 devices if you have them, if you don't then just leave them connected.

2. Hold down the windows key and press r

3. Type devmgmt.msc into the run menu and press ok

4. Click on the + sign next to the Universal Serial Bus Controllers

5. You might need another mouse to do this if you have a usb mouse.. I recommend you get a ps2 connector mouse which goes into the green round connector in the back of your pc.

6. Right click and uninstall first the usb root hubs. all of them then uninstall the rest of the devices you see under Universal serial bus controllers

7. Ones you have uninstalled everything you should see the Universal serial bus controllers there at all.

8. Now go ahead and restart your pc.

9. Ones you have restarted the pc your usb ports will reinstall in a moment stand by while it installs all of them. If you get warning messages click ok or continue installation.

10. Now go ahead and plug the usb devices back in. Install software if required, all usb devices if not faulty or broken should work now. Also note the error code if you get one?

This solution doesn't fix all usb problems so if you have a yellow ! mark there and device status reports a error code. Then it might not be a problem with your usb ports.

Thank you for reading, do leave suggestions, comments, feedback below.

What do the buttons on a 5-button wheel mouse do?


There will be defaults programmed by the company that do various things. these are changeable through the mouse properties in control panel. There driver must be loaded in order to recognize the buttons and there will always be a menu like properties in control panel that program what button does what.
1.) open control panel and look for the mouse
2.) double click the mouse icon
3.) if the driver is loaded you should see a representation of your mouse with options on what button does what.
4.) if you see a simple 3 button mouse then the default windows driver is being used.
5.) google search your mouse model and put in the search to find driver for sunch such mouse for like windows 7 driver.
6.) download and install. The installation util may give options for what button does what.
7.) Best of luck

Ok well maybe the drivers just got mixed up,try this below, remember you will have to reinstall ALL USB devices again, so have all the drivers ready, I put all my drivers in a driver directory, so whenever i must reinstall, i have the drivers for all my devices at hand, under one directory.

Remove and reinstall all USB controllers To remove and reinstall all USB controllers, follow these steps: Click Start, click Run, type sysdm.cpl in the Open box, and then click OK. Click the Hardware tab. Click the Device Manager button. Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers. Right-click every device under the Universal Serial Bus controllers node, and then click Uninstall to remove them one at a time. Restart the computer, and then reinstall the USB controllers. Plug in the removable USB storage device, and then test to make sure that the issue is resolved.
However often when a USB dongle device is jostled in and out, it can. and does, "Spike' the USB port, and sometimes it will "Blow" the USB inline protection fuses, on the motherboard. This is evidenced by NO Voltage at all on the port. If this is so, then you need to get this repaired. As a workarround, one can hookup a USB Hub, and connect all else up through that.

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

Mainboard does not recognize the PS/2 mouse


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.
