Hi,

i have some problems getting my mouse working.
OS: Dos 6.22 / win 3.11
I tryed different mouse dos driver. They load fine. But i have no mouse in any application.
I tryed connecting my PS2 mouse to the MS_mouse connector of the board. I also tryed different mouse types, also with com adapter on Com1. Any time the same, driver load fine but no mouse function.
In the bios PS/2 mouse support is enabled.
Is there any special on the FIC PT2007 mainboard i missed? Connector and mouse work fine on another mainboard.
Maybe there is a conflict but dont what to test more..
Anyone an idea ?

regards
Chris

Is the PS2 connector on a bracket or directly on the motherboard ?
Make sure the pinout of the serial port header is matching the pinout of your mobo's connector. There are two types of serial connectors

Yes that was the trick. I checked the pinout and it was different.
Here the pinout for FIC motherboards:

PIN#1-Mouse Data
PIN#2-N.C. (Not Connected)
PIN#3-Ground
PIN#4-Vcc
PIN#5-Mouse Clock

Maybe this helps someone else in the future.
