    What's wrong with my serial ports

    Oh well, it seems there's a cloud following me all week!
    My prob is that I think my ports (com1/2) failed because I've tried 3 mice but still doesn't work. I really have no idea what's wrong with it. I'm really THIS short of kicking this machine for I've got pending papers and I can't do it because of this stupid prob!
    And anyone who is familiar on interfacing a serial mouse to a PS/2 port? Any help will be appreciated
    BTW, I need help hurry!
