on a new pc with XP professional installed - the mouse (logitek) was initially installed on ps2 connection. It was moved to USB connection, by youngst son to run an mp3 player. When I tried moving the mouse back to ps2 it wouldn't work.

How can get the mouse to work from PS2 & free up the USB connection to run other peripherals?

many thanks

Hi Stephen. It should pick up the device automatically. Try rebooting. Wait for your startup programs to run and when your hd light has calmed down, simply remove the mouse lead from its current socket. You should hear a .wav sound on disconnecting as well as the high pitched wav, (recognising new hardware) when you plug it into its original place.
I have a feeling you've tried all this in lots of various combinations, trying to figure it out already, but please try this, and if you don't have any success post back here to let us know if the computer is recognising any hardware or not. <_<

Many thanks for the response - the solution eventually worked - however we did trace part of the problem to a bent pin on the ps2 connection
thanks again
