I have a PS/2 to Serial adapter. It was given to me so it never came with any of my mice. Since I am studying for A+ I decided to try the adapter out with one of my PS/2 mice. I get the standard error about there being no mouse connected and that i can either connect a serial mouse now or shutdown and install a ps/2 mouse. I went into Device MGR for good measure, even tryed deleting the PS/2 compatible device from the list, and doing a refresh. This has no effect.

How do you use one of these adapters? Is there special software or drivers to make them work?
