Go to the manufacture web site of you mouse if there is an updated version for your mouse for Vista.

I just got a windows Vista and have a mouse for windows 98 and 98se It is a h.p. mouse.Is there some way I can use it?? when I try to install disk it won't let me go any farther.Please help,and tell me...


hmm, well, most mice are easily recognized by Vista with no trouble or software to install. You can usually do this by having it recognize hardware that's plugged in, in control panel. My best suggestion is that if the hardware recognition in control panel doesn't fix it, you can get an inexpensive USB optical mouse for around or less than 20 dollars at any decent store. Some older mice just cannot work with newer OSs, while basic mice never stop working. Go fig.

Newer monitor to older xp pc


If your monitors are displaying "no signal" they aren't receiving input from the video card. If your PC has two video outputs (onboard) try charging to the other output to see if it will come on. Also reseat your video card in its slot. Also, what can you see that lets you know the keyboard and mouse are not working?

Problem with KVM switch and Vista


Your problem has nothing to do with the Operating System (Vista), it has something to do with the brand of your computer. I have similar problem before, I have Vista (Dell), but the time I connected another Vista (Sony Vaio), everything worked correctly.

This is what you need to do:

1. You have to make sure that you are using a standard USB keyboard and mouse.

2. Connect first the keyboard and mouse directly to the Vista computer to see if the USB ports of your computer are working properly.

3. You may power cycle the KVM switch by disconnecting it from the computers (including the keyboard and mouse) and leave it disconnected for 2 minutes.

4. Reconnect everything after two minutes and then reboot the computers.

5. Try using different USB keyboard if problem exist after power cycling the KVM switch.

Logitec V270 bluetooth mouse freezes


I found no solution but plenty of similar complaints on the V270 on other than just Vista machines. I will suggest finding another model mouse and check it for Vista compatibility before buying.
I am using a Logitech M-RBB_DEL4 mouse made for Dell, it's bluetooth and works flawlessly on my XP machine along with the keyboard it came with. I will try the one I just ordered on my Vista machine when the BT Keyboard and Mouse arrive.

Connection


Your HP notebook PC probably has a VGA (aka HD-15) connector. Check page 16 of this PDF to make sure - connector #2 is the VGA connector.

Your Compaq monitor also has a VGA HD-15 connector, so it should plug directly into your laptop's port after unplugging it from the other PC.

You will still need to plug the Compaq monitor's power cable into a wall outlet for power.

If you are going to share this monitor between your notebook and the other PC, you may want to consider purchasing a Keyboard-Video-Mouse switch (known as a "KVM switch") - there are many different models - you will need one with VGA, and whether you need USB or PS/2 keyboard/mouse connections depends on what your other PC's keyboard and mouse are.
