Used to be Disabled/Enabled, automatically fixed up based on presence. PS/2 Pointing device error or not connectedThat's your motherboard's BIOS telling you there's nothing plugged in to the PS/2 mouse port. i have failed to find any pertinent information on this forum. Contacting service is the right thing to do. @ mangmang1216, let us know what happens after your board is changed, it'll be interesting to know if the same problem crops
USB mouse isunaffected, of course, but the boot error will return next time themachine is shut down.I was wondering how others have resolved this kind of "problem".

it is irrelevant which type of keyboard is connected (USB or PS/2), and which type of mouse (USB or PS/2), and in which combination - i always get this error.

Booted right to the desktop!! If you still have the error try another mouse so we can determine if it is a bad mouse or something wrong with the mouse port. I believe the Depot replaced my CMOS battery (they are not too sure themselves on what they did either besides running a diagnostic when I called). The method for reading these codes is pretty straight forward.

I probably would have tried one of your other ideas, which were pretty good. More about the author That wasn't so hard, was it? This made me change inmy behaviour. I've never seen a Bios that gives an error when it does not find a mouse so I am unsure if that error message can be disabled or which setting has

peterApr 1, 2005, 12:39 PM Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.hardware (More info?)Hi,Try boot into BIOS and then disable the PS/2 port, enable the USB support then save and exit BIOS setup.Note: Remember As a computer technician, I rely on documentation to guide me through these types of messages. Keyboarding myself out of that would not be pretty. :(Can anyone see any problems with just leaving the place-holder dongleplugged in?--Barbara Jeroen Besse 2005-12-23 22:37:27 UTC PermalinkRaw Message Post by BarbaraI I really did not want to mess with the BIOS, I have heard some bad stories when trying to update that!
I return in a couple of weeks with my experiences. I would like to find a solution to this if I can, & if I could use a mouse that is not ps2, would be good too. By disabling this port, the computer is forced to recognize the mouse connected via USB. Occasionally these errors can be bypassed.
I've never had to replace one before. And it is all set up on my kitchen table until ready to put it back. (the monitor is extra as well) BTW - The mouse & keyboard are receiving the please share any insight. Leave the PS/2 mouse plugged in, and just drop it behind thecomputerRight now I've plugged a spare 3 inch PS/2-to-USB adapter dongle thinginto the PS/2 port and the computer thinks it
I would assume if Bios is programmed to give an error when it doesn't find a mouse then there is a setting somewhere to disable the message. It's like it doesn't want me to fix it..lol I don't think the virus could have done this, it was only an adware virus, Adware.ADTOMI + other; favoriteman, clearsearch..etc..... It was the adware virii. Unreserve PS/2 IRQ 12 in BIOS2.
