I have an old pc
(see post on working out cpu speed)

with a serial mouse (ps2 logitec through an adapter). so i tried a new ps2 mouse and it didnt work...
i tried the new mouse and adapter on a different pc - did not work.
tried just the ps2 mouse and it was ok...
so suspected the adapter,
bought a new serial mouse - tested on laptop all worked ok - so tried in old pc still not working

windows ME, device manager, serial mouse ! not working
removed device
add/new hardware - auto detect - did not detect
manual set standard serial mouse loaded, rebooted, still not detecting mouse.
suspected serial port
so using bios - auto set to (cant remember exactly but 1 port at 2F and the other at 3F)
still not detecting mouse

motherboard is p51430tx titanium 1b+

any ideas

Some mice will only work with the adapter that comes with them.....

Do the serial ports show up in device manager?

Well, they can and do go out.

What IRQ is being assigned for each via device manager? And are those IRQs being shared with anything else?

Yes, that is fine unless windows has something else assigned there.

Are you able to post your IRQ listing? Start, run, msinfo32, hardware, irqs.

Is the ps2 port enabled in the bios? Try going to the bios default settings and see if it'll enable the ports, also the failsafe and performance settings.

They can say status ok, and still share with another item. I've never had success in connecting anything to a serial port if it's sharing with something else. Just had an issue with my backup power supply on com 1 with something else thinking it wanted IRQ 3 too........major fight to break them up :D

Doesn't sound like anything sharing that matters.

I'd say you have hardware failure.......more than likely. Is there history or did they just stop working one day?
