    Got a message after loading up my PC:

    "Windows did not detect a mouse attached to the computer".

    How can I go about fixing this ?
    I tried different mouse(s) and none worked.

    note: The USB port works fine (can use a USB mouse).

    Is this a Windows message or a BIOS message (right after the memory test)? If its Windows, you can go to device manager and delete the PS2 mouse. That should take care of it.

    bios will never post about the mouse. It doesn't load mouse drivers with the bios. Deleting the ps/2 mouse in windows will not solve the problem, that it cannot dectect the mouse.

    Boot into dos, and get some dos drivers for your mouse. Then load the dos editor and see if the mouse icon appears. If you can move the mouse around in dos, something got screwed up in windows. Also check bios settings for anything dealing with the ps/2 ports. Like if you can disable them. I know some bios allow you to disable the ps/2 mouse ports.
