Chapter 7. Hardware Annoyances > USB-TO-PS/2 MOUSE ADAPTER

USB-TO-PS/2 MOUSE ADAPTER

The Annoyance:

I have a hand-me-down HP notebook from my son. On a whim, I bought a USB mouse at a garage sale and only later realized I have just one measly USB port on the notebook (right, it's that old). And that's already taken by my USB printer.

The Fix:

Instead of bothering with a USB hub, try a PS/2-to-USB adapter. You can probably find one at another garage sale, or buy one for under $5 at Provantage (http://snipurl.com/provantage).
