Question about Computers & Internet
Some PS/2 mice do not work with a USB adapter. They are designed to work only through the PS/2 port. It could be that you have one of those. If you are using a port replicator, try instead, to plug the mouse directly to the USB with the adapter.
If that does not work, your best bet, in my honest opinion, is to purchase a USB mouse. There are many varieties available and not too expensive either. I don't recommend the wireless varieties, as they always have some problem or the other in the long run..
Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.
