    I got this Logitech optical mouse #bj69(not a joke). When installing the drivers for it, the wizard said using ps2 connection can impede the performance greatly. So i shut it down and plugged it into a usb port. Upon reboot, of course there was no mouse support and had to use the keyboard only until it recognized it (about 3 min later). Then after it was installed, I got the blue screen of death and reboot.
    Is there an advantage to usb over ps2 for this device. I do recall the wizard saying something about 800dpi or something like that.
    I have been using it for about a year on ps2 until now. It has not done the blue screen thing again.

    Any suggestions?

    can you give us a link for this mouse? I'm afraid of what google will give me if i try a search for that^ :o

    did you enable 'usb legacy' support in the BIOS?

    I took a chance and tried to look it up on logitech's site, is this it?
    http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm?pa...9&languageid=1

    if so, i think we have the same mouse. I have always used mine via usb but I have never installed logitech's software for it (i don't see the point, it's a simple mouse)...the winXP native logitech drivers work just fine; I've never had any problems with the mouse.

    in fact, i've had problems with logitech's MouseWare in the past, useually with games...so if your bios checks out ok, you may want to consider unistalling MouseWare (if it is installed) and letting the native drivers load
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    Heres a link logitech . But its not direct, as that would be no fun. Type bj69 in the search at the top right and its the first hit. It makes no reference to the actual model number for apparent reasons. Just try it. And yes it is enabled. What would happen if not.

    i have that same mouse too and this thing sucks :
    it never worked properly as a USB mouse. it would jump around...stop functioning...change my single clicks into double clicks...in all a ****ing stupid thing :grr: :grr: :grr:

    phew i m okk now...:p
    but seriously it never worked in USB port. though i never got any blue screens and i never had problems with getting it installed or getting it recognized.
    as soon as i attached it to USB port and restarted...XP installed the required drivers so that was never a problem but it never worked as a USB mouse. don't know why : omg:

    I still use my M$ optical mice in the PS2 ports even though they're USB capable but I've never seen that message before.

    I'm dense as a post, true.
    Fact is, I've never understood why anyone would choose to use a mouse with a USB connection?

    Just the fact that there would be no mouse available in Safe-Mode should be enough to make any reasonable-thinking person from using a USB port for an input device.

    For me it's a simple equation;
    USB + any type of primary input device (ie. mouse &/or keyboard) = bad (ie. not a good idea)

    May I ask why..:?: :)

    Those are really nice, my optical Intellimices are awesome at fast fps gaming at 6000hz connected with usb. Cheap to, about $30 here atm.

    Well, I have been playing games and other stuff since the switch. It is more accurate now. Maybe there is a better data transfer now.
    The driver I tried is logitech mouseware 9.76
    Before it was running on default m$ drivers. It still has not given me the blue screen/reboot again. The cord doesnt fall out anymore like it did with the usb to ps2 adapter since I got it.
    I guess it would suck in safe mode.

    For the same reasons as Mr. C stated in the post before and PS2 keyboards and mice have never givin' me any performance problems which I can't say the same for USB ones. I leave the USB ports for printers, scanners, cameras, external drives and such.

    you can get freeware to adjust the sampling rate of a PS2 port.
    for instance:
    http://www.freedownloadscenter.com/U...s/PS2rate.html

    That will take it to 200hz, you got awesome input skills if 200,000 samples per second won't provide you with the speed and accuracy to play a game.
    80hz is the default sampling rate on a stock PS2 port.
