Well i got a usb to ps/2 adapter and it is green. It says it goes in the green mouse port on my computer. But it is not working. I put the little usb stick that came with my wireless keyboard and mouse. And it apparently does not work. I cant type, or use my mouse. What should i do?

Thanks!

There are very specific adapters for the PS/2 mouse nd a different one for the keyboard.  They are not inter-changeable.

Those adapters are made for a mouse with a USB connector on the end...not for wireless-USB devices.

As hamluis stated, "Those adapters are made for a mouse with a USB connector on the end...not for wireless-USB devices."

 

You will just have to use an available USB port for your Wireless Receiver. Either Front or Rear. If you lack open USB ports you can purchase an inexpensive USB Hub.
