Start (button) select control panel / system / hardware / device manager / mice & pointing device / double click, select wheel mouse (or whatever mouse you have) right mouse click, properties, select use this device (enable) - But I'm surprised you are having trouble with it.. Have you changed anything recently? Have you always used a ps2 mouse? Try connecting the mouse & re-booting the pc.. Also make sure it's plugged into the correct port, not the ps2 keyboard port.. Especially checkif you are using a usb keyboard.. Rgds

    Another thought, you might need to enable the mouse via the BIOS setup.. to get to your bios configuration Press F2 after switching the pc on to access BIOS on.. Be very careful here, you can cause problems by selecting the wrong thing & saving the wrong selection.. Check the menu options for a mouse config. change.. Might be an option there.

Supermicro SuperServer 5013G-M - PS2 error


Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.supermicro.com/products/system/1u/5013/sys-5013g-m.cfm

Is your Mouse a USB mouse or is it a HYBRID Mouse? Look at the bottom of mouse and see what is written. It should give you the: (1-) Name (2-) Model Number & it will either say: "USB Mouse" or "USB 2.0 and PS2 Compatible". If it is USB 2.0 and PS2 Compatible, then it is a HYBRID MOUSE - You should have a - USB to PS2 - Adapter that came with the mouse.

Use that adapter and plug into the PS2 Mouse port - (only if it is a HYBRID). It will automatically configure itself as a PS2 mouse. Now you will have both your Input devices set as PS2.

(2) - If it is a USB mouse, can you obtain a PS2 mouse to temporarily use? If you can; try using the PS2 Mouse Port?

Now you may have to set BIOS on - with regard to:
(1) - Legacy USB Support -(Either Support or Disable)
(2) - USB settings to what Motherboard supports

Try also to upgrade the drivers/bios, if nessesary.

SET LEGACY USB SUPPORT TO "DISABLED" FOR BOTH MOUSE & KEYBOARD IN BIOS.

Good luck

How to disable ps2 on GA-8IR533 Motherboard


PS2 is usually disabled In the BIOS under ADVANCED or PORTS, but if that option is not available, I suggest you purchase PS2-to-USB adapters, then use your usb mouse and usb keyboard in the ps2 ports. Personally, I love ps2. id rather use USB for my cameras and scanners and drives rather than wasting those ports on a kb and mouse.

Disabled Touchpad


connect a usb or ps2 mouse to it and re enable it either through device manager or re install the driver for the touchpad ( get the newest driver from IBM's website )
That or you may be able to re enable it through the utility that sometimes is in the system tray.

HI

Try disabling and re enabling the mouse. Else reinstall the mouse driver. If it still fails you may need to reinstall your OS or get the ports checked.
