    Default Logitech and an old Toshiba

    I would really appreciate some help here. I have an anicent Toshiba laptop that was built to run on Windows 98 or NT. The person who gave it to me upgraded it to XP, and I suspect that it's part of my problem. I'm attemting to install a Logitech wireless mouse and keyboard onto it, and I can only get it to register the mouse in a certain PS2 port, even after installing the driver, rebooting, and changing the PS2 ports after it didn't work.


    Thanks!

    I would try installing win 98 to see if that works, I just hope that mouse works with win 98. Most do though. I also noticed that some mice and keyboards have some requirements like 256 mb RAM, I have no idea what that is all about.

    Have you updated the motherboard drivers? I've seen a few cases where people updated the O/S and neglected to install the necessary drivers to match the operating system. 128mb of RAM is a bit on the low side for Windows XP but I've seen it used sucessfully on less.

    Going to 98 isn't going to fix a thing. Does anything else work in the PS2 port the mouse won't work in?
    Also, go to Toshiba's website and see if you can find the latest drivers for the lappy.

    Despite a few attempts, I haven't got a version of 98, and the packaging said it would work on 98 as well.

    I haven't updated anything. Frankly, computers are not an area I know much about, and I'm making some attempt to remedy that. I'll check later and see if he upgraded them.

    The PS2 port that the mouse works in is also supposed to allow the keyboard to work,...which it doesn't. The other port I used was one that had [...] on it. I'll meander ver to the Toshiba site when I boot it up later.

    Thanks all!

    As amd_man2005 stated reverting to 98 would not help. (....Unless you had the original Toshiba recovery disk.) You would still need to find the proper drivers for your system. http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/t...su_sc_home.jsp may be a good starting point for research of drivers etc. No garantee that drivers will solve your problem but I should think that it is a good place to start.

    I agree with Yawgm0th, just get the drivers, my suggestion was bad.

    If nothing will work in that port, its either a bad port or drivers are the issue. If drivers do not fix it, the port is bad. Why not just plug the mouse or the keyboard into a USB port?

    Don't bring me into this.

    But seriously, what are you talking about? I didn't say anything.
