I am trying to connect a mouse to a computer that does not have a PS2 port. I have a PS2 mouse and am using a serial adaptor plug but just cannot get the mouse to be detected or installed. Any wise ideas?

check and see if anything else is using com1 this normally the default com port for a serial mouse

Is there any driver (highly unlikely) needed to be installed before using the mouse?

If the mouse was not designed to use the PS2 adapter, it's unlikely to work.

The mouse has to be designed to accommodate the use of an adapter, its not a given.

Buy a serial mouse, cost less then a feed at Mcdonalds....and just as tasty....

Perhaps, bpt2, you could tell us the model / brand of the mouse?
