Where do I plug in the mouse for a Dell Laptop-Latitude D600 series, BIOS Version: A13, Pentium M 1.40 GHz/600MHz and does it need a special mouse or will a mouse from another computer fit it>

Thanks

There should be 2 USB ports on the back, left hand side.

then I guess I need to get new mouse. :mellow: I see the USB ports but I only have the wired mouse that goes into the round plugin. I have tried 3 and none will fit.

Thanks

You can get PS/2 to USB adaptors, they cost about 1 over here.
Sounds like a really old mouse you have there.

The only round connections I see are the one on the left next to the USB connectors, which is TV out and one at the other end which is an AC adapter connector.

There's also a serial port, but I haven't seen a serial mouse in over 10 years. :lol:

If you are going to get an adapter (which I suspect you will need per the previous post) I also suggest you look at wireless unit.

I know you probably were looking in that direction anyways, but still thought I'd voice the thought. ;)

Bonne chance,
