I have a HP USB mouse. I just bought a PS/2 adapter for it but the mouse doesn't work when I plug it into the PS/2 port. I plugged the mouse in while the computer was off than started the computer. The red light on the mouse lights up but the pointer doesn't move. The mouse will work if I plug it back into the USB port.
I have too many devices that require usb ports. My mouse, keyboard, printer, and my camera all take USB inputs. In addition, I would have my webcam and a jump drive that would need a USB input when I used them. My one USB port on the front of the computer stopped working so I have one USB port in the front and 2 in the back. I did go out and buy a USB hub and everybody was happy for a couple of days then I started having problems with my devices not working. So I decided to get the mouse and keyboard back into the regular ports. The mouse adapter arrived yesterday and I tried to use it and it didn't work. The keyboard adapter hasn't arrived yet so I don't know if it will work. I would like to get a new computer but that isn't a possibility. I am leaning towards the idea that my mouse will not work with the adapter. I wish I would have know that before I spent the money on the adapter. Do think I will have any problems with the keyboard?
