At this stage, I would take the motherboard out of the case completely and rebuild the machine paying attention to the screw holes and marking them on the motherboard correctly in case if you didn't do so originally.

I can't really think of anything else except it being a bad motheboard!

Mouse 6 pin ps/2 port on back of HP Pavilion Media Center TV m7680n not working it is enabled in bios where can i buy one online i need mouse and keyboard ps/2 ports to go ...


You are using the correct terminology.
Ps2 mice are far and few between. Use a USB mouse, likewise keyboard and add a USB to PS2 adapter.

USB Keyboard and mouse wont work with PS2 KVM with adapter


Have you tried rebooting once it is connected? Not sure if it makes a difference, but I know you can not hook up PS2 peripherals without rebooting.

To connect the mouse to this computer


Only two types of mainstream mice PS2 or USB

PS2: round end with pins, goes into a specific port
USB: flat goes into any usb port.

Now if this "computer" ( which is your only description)
doesn't have either of the above ports then perhaps it's quite old. if this is correct then you will reqiure a "serial port" mouse!

Can't load os do you computer Dell only has usb ports


Ensure the Keyboard and mouse are connected to the USB ports nearest the PS2 port on the back of the chassis.

Boot to the BIOS F2 and ensure USB emulation is ON.

If you can't access the bios, reset the BIOS using the Jumper on the motherboard, then USB ports should then work.

HELLO


is your mouse and keyboard plugged into a PS2 connector http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Ps-2-ports.jpg
look inside of your case and see if any capacitors are buldging on your motherboard the tops of the capacitors should be level/flat if they're ok, sounds like they are going, look for brown rusty color also around tops of capacitors, might be your outputs are going. If you have your mouse and keyboard plugged into ps2 ports try a USB Mouse and keyboard, borrow one first or buy a usb laser mouse for $12 worth a try even if your ps2 ports are blown, use the usb ports for mouse/keys ;)

Power failure after connecting the mouse


Hi sambi,

If you are currently, working on PS2 mouse port which is the error occurred as stated in your problem. Try to used other PS2 mouse which working on the other pc maybe there was a short circuit on your old mouse. If the problem persist, You can use the alternative way by using USB port to plug your optical mouse.

Try to look for ps2 to usb port converter in the computer stores maybe you can still used your old mouse.

Hope this will be helpful to you.


Best Regards,


Philip
