Yes USB wireless mouse and keyboard. I plugged in a PS/2 mouse and
rebooted the PC. Still the same problem.
This USB wireless unit controls both the mouse and keyboard. The
keyboard works well. A big question mark above my head! Maybe it is
BIOS. I looked for mouse connection in the BIOS as to maybe adjust
setting, but I couldn't find it. I'll look for a BIOS update or
upgrade.. Much many thanks for the reply. Jim
