win98se mouse too fast

Recommended Posts

OK,

So I've been attempting to install windows98 SE on my Ryzen 5 2400g system using @rloew's patches, it's been going well so far.

I've made it up to the windows98 desktop, but i now have an issue with my mouse. It jumps to the corners of my screen way too quickly and it's unusable.

 

Earlier during the install, I could use the setup /il switch to fix this problem -

/il - Load the Logitech mouse driver. Use this option if you have a Logitech Series C mouse.

 

is there a way to tell windows98 to use the Logitech mouse driver all the time? or another solution?

You can try using a PS/2 mouse, unless your motherboard doesn't have a PS/2 port. :(

Did you try changing the mouse speed in the Control Panel Mouse applet?

It might be something to do with how windows98 handles USB devices, since the keyboard will also misbehave if I disconnect and reconnect it.

I grabbed an old PS/2 mouse, and it wouldn't even work in the BIOS! why?! I thought PS/2 it should at least work in BIOS.

I've look everywhere in BIOS, the only option I can see is

PS/2 Y-Cable

I've tried auto and enabled (no disable option?) - made no difference PS/2 mouse won't work, might be dead

 

USB mouse works fine in BIOS

 

any alternative to the vmouse.vxd driver anywhere?

Which motherboard exactly are you using?

I just remembered that Win9x USB mouse behaviour differ between different USB mice! I had one when it worked fine, and other that was acting strangely.

So it might be a problem of the mouse itself.

Enable USB Legacy Support and PS/2 Emulator (if there is an option like that) in your BIOS.

Since you're @rloew's customer (like myself) you can always ask him for his help. I'm sure he can create a custom fix for your case, which may be the 1st of a similar series, since you're using a rather recent motherboard. Do PM him.
