I just installed a KVM switch to hook up two computers to the same monitor, mouse & keyboard. I also had to buy a new PS/2 optical mouse, since my ancient serial mouse wasn’t compatible with the switch. (Do they even make trackball mice anymore? Oh well…)
Once I installed the mouse & the switch, I noticed on my older (Win98) computer, the mouse speed had dropped to super slo-motion – so slow that it took three swipes across the mousepad just to get across the screen. So I went to Control Panel -> Mouse -> Motion and adjusted the slider a few clicks to get that quick, flick-of-the-wrist motion I like.
Problem is…the computer keeps automatically resetting the mouse speed to the slowest possible! Usually it’s after the computer’s been idle awhile, but it’s also happened suddenly while I’m using the machine. I can’t figure out how to make the mouse speed “stick” so I don’t have to keep resetting it all the time…any help?
