Hello first let me say thank you for reading this and second i will explain what problem i am having. I built a system for the first time and it works fine except that my mouse doesn't work most of the time. I kept shutting down and replugging the mouse in and i finally got it to work but then i installed the driver disc that came with the mobo and when i restarted my comp it didnt work again. I kept trying again and eventually it worked again but when i restart it doesnt work. I do not think it is the ps/2 port because it is working sometimes. Does anyone have any suggestions on what i can do should i reinstalled windows and that didnt seem to help i dont know what to do other than return the motherboard to get a new one with a new ps/2 port but as i said it works sometimes so i dont think it is the ps/2 or the mouse because the mouse works fine i am using it now on my other comp that i am on now. Thanks again

The fact that it works in another computer but not in the one in question would point to the PS/2 port being faulty. Have you tried a USB mouse to see if that works?

no i only have a bunch of ps/2 mice i guess i could go out tomorrow and buy one. So even though it registers the mouse sometimes that mean the ps/2 port could be bad?
