Question about Computers & Internet
What kind of mouse is it? If it has a round plug, then it's a PS/2 mouse, if a rectangular one than it's USB.
Either way, I suggest getting a new mouse. Get a laser mouse instead of a mouse with a ball in it. They last much longer. I've been buying Logitech brand mice for years and find them to be reliable.
For example, at Staples you can probably pick up a basic, wired, USB Logitech mouse for under $30, maybe less than $20. I recommend wired over wireless, wireless ones burn up batteries quickly.
Also, I've found that if you have a round PS/2 plug for a mouse instead of USB, many of the Logitech mice come with a little green adapter in the package that will let you plug the USB mouse into a round PS/2 port.
I know this is a dumb solution, but mice are so inexpensive these days that messing around with an older mouse simply isn't worth the effort.
