Default USB/PS2 mouse wont work

Hey guys, this is my first post so be gentle..lol. OK so, my comp is a little messed up, it does not have any working USB ports, so i have to use ps2 mice, which are pretty hard to find. i bought a Logitech mouse with a usb/ps2 converter, but i plug it in, it lights up, but does not work..if i restart the comp with it still plugged in, it will no longer light up, and it still does not work. i've tried downloading the software for the logitech mouse, and installing it, but it still does not work..i need any suggestions you have.. plz help

Did you happen to hotplug the PS/2 mouse on the PS/2 port??? If so chances are you fried that port, as for the USB check in device manager and see if there are any yellow ! marks...

im not sure what hotplugging is..but i can plug any ps2 mouse into the port and it will work, as for the yellow !, when i plug in my usb/ps2 converted mouse, it wont work, and when i go into the device manager, there is no mouse device

Odd, do the USB ports work with other devices?
