Hi,

I have acquired a NEC Power mate 1 plus (286) this is running QuikMenu 2.08. Now I don't have a mouse but can run applications using the keyboard shortcuts however when I do the applications are not displayed correctly e.g. black screen, pieces of screen missing etc.

I'm guessing this is due to the applications running in a different screen resolution?

I don't know much about QuikMenu (I always had Amiga's growing up) would it be the case that launching the .exe via the GUI icon would also run it in the correct resolution e.g. additional resolution parameter set when the application / icon was added to quick menu?

Another question I have is what type of mouse do I require as I cannot see any additional mouse ports on this machine from the quick look I've had so far, the mouse wont be any kind of PS2 connection will it? as that would be far to old?

Thanks,
Jay

Done a little reading and it looks like I need a serial mouse.
