I have used Word Express (16bit) for many years, on various computers with 311, 95, 98, ME, & XP. Never any trouble.
I gave my old computer (AMD K6) to my brother with ME in it. I have used 'Word Express' for several years on it. Now for some reason, the graphics mode of the program will not work. I have reinstalled it & Windows. No change.
Everything else works OK, except that sometimes I get random selection of text & sometimes a string of 4's. I have tried 2 keyboards.

There is another thing. The ps/2 mouse plug does not work, serial mouse in Com1 is OK. If I plug a ps/2 mouse in, the cursor goes beserk racing all over the screen.

Presume you removed the serial mouse & fitted PS2 - with the computer switched OFF.
Bye

Gave up using the ps/2 long ago.
Tried changing the drivers, no difference.
I suspect a short in the board.
