I have purchased a new computer, running Windows XP-Pro, SP3, that accepts only USB mouse input. I have purchased a PS2-USB adapter to plug in my old O35g mouse, but when I install the driver, the AOpen Wheelworks software will not run. I like the mouse, and would like to have the 4-button, 2-wheel functionality. Is this a function of the USB port, and if so, is there any way around it?

Re: AOPen O35g to usb port
Sometimes adapters do not work. this might work start computer without mouse. you may have to work with keyboard tab key as you press tab key you should see the icons highlighted install drivers plug in mouse to usb if lucky O/S will recognize mouse and setup

Could be a problem with your system BIOS, enter the setup while your computer is booting (before it gets to windows) by hitting the F12 key probably. Make sure that the boot order is HDD first, not something else.
on the back of your computer box, you will (probably) find 2 ports that look like this. the PS2 mouse will be plugged into the green colored port. NOTE: PS2 mice (and keyboards) will only fit into the port ONE DIRECTION, so don't force it! make sure to line it up
once plugged in, you will need to reboot your computer, as PS2 can only be recognized while the computer is starting up.
one final note: some of the newest computers DO NOT have PS2 ports. if this is true of your computer, you will need to get a new mouse, or an adapter, like the one shown below:
the very first thing what u have to do is uninstall and reinstall the driver for the wireless mouse and then restart the computer and still if it doesnt work try it with some other computer which has xp sp3 and it it works with the other computer have the same windows os then uninstall and reinstall the wireless driver also,and if it doesnt work with the other computer also then replace the wireless mouse.but before that always check ur wireless connection with the wireles mouse and also check the lights on the mouse..and what u can do is call up dell and tell thatm to replace it for u or for complete solution u can call up cyyberdefender.com for premium tech support.......take care ...
Try disconnecting the Mouse Receiver from the
USB port and reinstall the CD software program. When
the program asks you to connect the MouseReceiver to the USB
port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud
Well this problem has nothing to do with your Operating System. This has everything to do with your System Bios.
Basically, the first thing you need to determine is "Is it USB or PS2?"
If it's USB: 1) Is it installed in a USB Hub? It might not have enough power, try a different USB port. 2) Go into the system bios. Look for an option that says "Enable USB Support" make sure it's enabled.
If it's PS2: 1) The connection might be lose, turn the computer off, unplug it, plug it back in. 2) Try a different PS2 Keyboard, same problem? Your PS2 ports are failing, buy a USB Keyboard.
