    Ok maybe I wasn't clear enough I tried to plug the mouse into my computer and I accidently bent one of the prongs on the connector/ male part of the PS2 connector that fits into the computer. I tried to bend it back but broke it off and now the mouse does not work. Is there anything I can do to fix it?

    I used a fingernail file to open up one of the 4 holes that was blocked because it the prong was still a little bent. It worked!!! Thanks for the tip about tweezers even though i had to use a file.

If the ps2 port on the main board is broken you will need to replace the board. If this is the case and your computer has usb ports on it just go out and buy a usb mouse.


If the part that is broken is from the mouse by using tweezers try to gently remove the broken part from the board. if unsuccessful use the usb port with a usb mouse.

Initially, pls check if there is a reset switch at the rear panel of the unit. If there, press on it and try again. If this does not work, unplug the unit from the mains for a couple of minutes, say 15 or so.

My lap top computer (Dell) . The hookup to the electricity is broken off . The little prong that sticks out for you to hook up to is broken off inside the computer on the mother board

This will require attention from a technician that can disassemble your notebook and replace the power connector. Contact Dell or a reputable local computer repair shop. Most likely, you will receive faster and more affordable service from the local shop.

Hope this helps.
