PS/2 mice pause in 32-bit Windows XP Pro. SP3 (safe mode too) and7 PE liveCD...

Ant

Hello!

Does anyone know why my PS/2 mice, with its USB adapter (Logitech and
eMachine), like to pause on my new EVGA X58 SLI (132-BL-E758; BIOS date
5/11/2010; v6.00 PG; release number IX58SZ64) motherboard in 32-bit
Windows? I never had this problem with my other older motherboards with
pure PS/2 connections, but this new motherboard only has a PS/2 keyboard
port so I was forced to use a USB adapter for the mouse. The reason for
a PS/2 mouse is because I use a KVM to share my monitor, mouse, and
keyboard. I already eliminated the cables and KVM switch box to see
where the pauses are coming from. They're not from KVM and its cables. :(

My PS/2 mice likes to pause in 32-bit Windows. Rear ports seems to pause
way more than the front. The pauses can cause randomly and every few
seconds. I also tried different adapter cables beside different PS/2
mice. I can reproduce this in both 32-bit Windows XP Pro. SP3 (safe mode
too) and 7 PE liveCD.

I was not able to reproduce it with a KNOPPIX v6.4.4 liveCD, but I did
notice these USB errors in dmesg command:

Does Windows not reset USB device or something? I also tried Logitech
Mouseware, but that didn't seem to help either.

Thank you in advance. :)

Hello!

Does anyone know why my PS/2 mice, with its USB adapter (Logitech and
eMachine), like to pause on my new EVGA X58 SLI (132-BL-E758; BIOS
date 5/11/2010; v6.00 PG; release number IX58SZ64) motherboard in
32-bit Windows? I never had this problem with my other older
motherboards with pure PS/2 connections, but this new motherboard only
has a PS/2 keyboard port so I was forced to use a USB adapter for the
mouse. The reason for a PS/2 mouse is because I use a KVM to share my
monitor, mouse, and keyboard. I already eliminated the cables and KVM
switch box to see where the pauses are coming from. They're not from
KVM and its cables. :(
My PS/2 mice likes to pause in 32-bit Windows. Rear ports seems to
pause way more than the front. The pauses can cause randomly and every
few seconds. I also tried different adapter cables beside different
PS/2 mice. I can reproduce this in both 32-bit Windows XP Pro. SP3
(safe mode too) and 7 PE liveCD.
Many of those machines with only one PS/2 port, can handle a mouse and a
keyboard used in the same port. I would test to make sure that having
one or the other works fine first. And if that passes, I would buy one
of those PS/2 Y cables. And then you should be good to go.

I have those USB to serial (RS-232) adaptors. And I think the idea is
the same. You can only use one of them on a given machine at a time. And
they are not 100% perfect. As which end gets connected first could make
all of the difference between working and not working.

Well, my motherboard shows a keyboard logo on that PS/2 port. Are you
saying connecting a PS/2 splitter for a mouse and keyboard would work
and fix the mouse pauses?

I forgot to mention eMachine mouse was a ball type and the Logitech was
an optical laser type. They didn't make any differences. Also, I tried
two different PS/2+USB adapters as well.

Does Windows not reset USB device or something? I also tried Logitech

Well, my motherboard shows a keyboard logo on that PS/2 port. Are you
saying connecting a PS/2 splitter for a mouse and keyboard would work
and fix the mouse pauses?
I am saying sometimes the single PS/2 could handle both. And I would try
a PS/2 mouse in the port to see if that works. If it does, I would buy a
Y cable. As I believe there is a good chance that it would work. And
yes, I would think it would solve your problem too.

Many of those machines with only one PS/2 port, can handle a mouse

OK, I will try it. I hope I don't fry my motherboard! :D

I tried hooking both mouse and keyboard to a PS/2+USB adapter splitter
(purple and green). It was working for about 30 minutes and then both
devices started pausing (not just the mouse like earlier). When I type
on my PS/2 keyboard and pauses occur, it either doesn't register my keys
or gets stuccccccccccccccck like that. :(
