ello peeps i have a P1 133 pc that im about to throw in a skip but feel i either need to be told not to or be pushed to do it :D

it works perfectly however the mouse port on the pc can't be detected from the motherboard. When it boots up it says keyboard detected and then doesn't mention anything about this mouse when it used to say "detected"

anyone any ideas how i can fix this or would it just require replacing the mobo.

cheers

If the ps2 port is dead it's dead. Probably going to cost more to fix than what it's worth.

If it has any USB ports you can always tell the charity that it will need a USB mouse.

I'd be surprised if it has a USB Port, but if it is a PS/2 Port, then it surely has a serial port, and a mouse could be attached there.

If yes, turn off the PS/2 port in the BIOS.
