Replace it.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

You'll likely never find a "new" serial mouse (unless someone happens to have a "never-used, new-in-box" available). They haven't been made in quite some time, and trying to substitute one with a PS/2-to-serial adapter is often hit & miss. I'd suggest using a PS/2 mouse (still available) if possible or trying something on Google shopping or an auction site, or try to find a local business that's discarding old equipment.

Those PS/2 adapters only work with 'combo' mice; that is mice that have both serial and PS/2 capabilites already. And even then not all adapter work with all combo mice.

There's gotta be some serial mice on ebay.

If you can't find one locally I'll put one on ebay for a 'buy it now'. I've got several new ones.
