Problem with ps/2 mouse while using plug converter

Whenever I use the plug converter to convert my ps/2 mouse into a usb mouse due to my ps/2 mouse port being damaged this happens. No sooner had I used the plug converter than the keyboard failed & the mouse did not work.

This happened multiple times. At first I thought it might have been the software problem. But it is not because I used the same mouse & another keyboard of my friend & the same thing happened.

There must be a problem with the mouse. Unfortunately I do not have any image of my problem.

It’s not necessary that problem is with your ps/2 mouse, probably your ps/2 to USB converter has problem. Try to exchange converter, I hope your problem will be solved, moreover find Pc or a laptop with ps/2 port and check your mouse, whether it’s working or not.

If mouse is working in ps/2 port directly then certainly you got to exchange the converter, but if you’ll find that mouse isn’t working even directly on ps/2 port then there is some problem in the mouse.

Then you have to change your mouse. You should buy USB optical mouse instead again getting through this dull process.

A plug converter's purpose is just to convert or make the original connector compatible with another port so it can be attached there and your hardware will still function as before.

In your mouse’s case, try buying another cable converter different from the one you have so you will know if it is with your plug converter that causes the problem. If after using a new set of cable converter the problem has not changed, try borrowing a PS/2 mouse from your friend and connect it to either of your cable converters and then plug it to the USB port.

If the problem is still the same even after using a different PS/2 mouse, maybe when your computer’s PS/2 port got damaged before it affects some of the components of the board.

It is not advisable at this stage to buy a new USB mouse since it already failed when you tried to use a PS/2 to USB plug converter.

I think at this stage your computer needs a board replacement. Bring your computer to a qualified technician to ask for another opinion and also help you on what type of motherboard to buy if that’s the last thing you should do.
