Unusual problem. Compaq laptop with PS2 mouse connector. When I hook up a USB mouse, it works fine. But the PS2 mouse is not recognized. Any ideas?

Was the PS2 mouse plugged in on bootup? Does another PS2 mouse work on it? If so, then it's most likely the mouse. If not, then it's most likely the port.

Alternatively, you could try the PS2 mouse in another computer to see if it works.

I agree with usasma, make sure you boot with it attached and try different mice/computers to rule out a bad mouse.

Additionally, I recall once a friend of mine with a similar problem. It turned out that there was a BIOS setting that needed changing in order to use the PS/2 port for a mouse rather than for a keyboard. Check the BIOS settings. Have you tried plugging a PS/2 keyboard into the port?

Mouse was tried before & after bootup no difference. Plus this was a wireless mouse, so I found an old standard mouse and tried that both ways as well. No difference.

I will check the BIOS, had not thought about that.
Thanks.
