Hooking up PS/2 Mouse/Keyboard old AT mobo

Hi, I'm building an old dos/win 95 box. I've got a this motherboad: http://stason.org/TULARC/pc/motherboards/P/PC-WARE-INTERNATIONAL-INC-Pentium-MB-TRITON-W.html#ixzz2Bq4ATofW

It only has an AT din port, I've read that you can only hook up keyboards to these, and as I don't have an AT keyboard I've bought an AT to PS/2 adaptor.

My question is now, how do I hook up the mouse? I'm going to put a soundblaster that has a serial port in the machine, so I could use a serial mouse, but the problem is I wanted to use that serial port for a joystick. Also I'd prefer a PS/2 option as I don't have a serial mouse.

  1. Welcome to Tom's Hardware Froum,
    The only thing that comes to mind off hand would be the use of an expansion slot to add ports or do you only have one expansion slot
  2. C12Friedman, Thanks for your reply. That was the first thing that came to mind (ps/2 cards), but they seem to be fairly rare and expensive (considering this build is going to be under $50). I was just wondering what people did back in the day. I guess serial mouses through some serial port.
  3. I was thinking more along this line, SYBA 1-Serial Port PCI 32-Bit Card Model SY-PCI15003
  4. Sir buy a usb add on card and usb mouse its cheap also.....
