    Default Serial mouse for pentium

    I need a serial mouse. Mobo does not have a PS/2 Mouse port, just a DIN for keyboard, as it is AT form factor. Anybody have a serial mouse I can have ?

    Check your manual. Many Pentium mobo's have an open socket with 5 or 6 pins near the keyboard port on which you can plug a PS/2 mouse adapter like this:

    You may have to re-wire the black connector, there is no universal system in place.

    there is one of those but not only do I not feel like cutting up wires and twisting them together (I never did learn how to properly rewire those cheap plastic connectors), I dont feel like learning the pinouts and stuff either plus I dont have a PS2 mouse. So i might as well get a serial killer... i mean mouse.

    However, if you ever run into a connector like that which you -have- to fix, there are tiny plastic covers over the metal plugs that hook into them. If you carefully lift such a cover up a little bit with for example a needle you can pull the wire + plug from the connector and reseat it in another slot. Thus no need to cut anything.

    Personally I don't like serial mice much, PS/2 mice have a more 'flowing' behaviour in my experience. .

    Please disregard the text that was posted here before. I had multiple forums open on different tabs and I posted a post here, that was meant for posting on another forum online. I am thoroughly embarassed and would appreciate the topic not being brought up.
