    Why are you using a Logitech drive with a non-Logitech mouse?

    Logitech is what comes up, when I use the mouse.sys driver which came with MS-DOS 6.22

    When config.sys sets: "device=c:>dos>mouse.sys", it shows a logitech driver at startup.

    I haven't installed any logitech mouse driver since I got the computer. Only went from IBM DOS to MS DOS 6.22.

    So I just thought that MS DOS has a somekind of Logitech standard mouse driver?

    Sorry, but I have no idea what's going on there.

    I expect the OP will try the MS, Logitech, and CuteMouse drivers to see which one works best for the specific system and mouse.

    The MS-DOS 6.22 packing list shows no mouse drivers included. PC-DOS 6 includes MOUSE.COM but not MOUSE.SYS. Someone enhanced the DOS with Logitech drivers.

    Ok. I was just searching the DOS directory for mouse.sys or mouse.com and only found the .sys. I thought it came with DOS 6.22, as I upgraded from IBM DOS to MS DOS when I got this computer couple of weeks back. Maybe this mouse.sys was a "leftover" from the old installation of IBM DOS (or whoever messed with it back in the days).

    Im not in the same house as the computer, but will check it again tomorrow, when Im back there. Will try and download an IBM mouse driver, see if anything changes.

    But maybe this is just the way it's supposed to be on these old PS2
    I'd suggest using the IBM MOUSE.COM then, as that's designed for the PS/2 mice.
