Hi people, I posted another message here a while ago about a defective intellimouse. It turns out, the plug that it came with that converted your serial port into a PS/2 port (in case you dont have a ps/2 port, and the intellimouse is ps/2 only) was messed up, I guess. It could be my computer, I have no idea. But I went downstairs and tried the intellimouse on our old 486 that only has a ps/2 port, and it worked perfectly, but without the wheel of course. So here's my point: how could I find out if my computer upstairs (Pentium 200, TXPro M/B, AT form factor, serial-port only, no PS/2 port) supports the serial-to-PS/2 plug? Shouldn't all pc's support it? The plug might be broken I guess, if so then where could I ever find another one? I never saw these anywhere before, and any computer guy I show just gives me a confused look, like they never saw it either. It hooks into the serial port and you're supposed to attach a PS/2 mouse to the plug. But it does NOT work one bit, my pc doesn't detect the intellimouse. If u have any suggestions, please e-mail me, or the beautiful intellimouse will be rotting away uselessly on the 486 while I use a no-name 2 button mouse for all my life.
