Mouse on 95 and 2000.

Question

I used to have windows 95, when I upgraded it too windows 2000, it gave me a option, I chose to keep win95 and keep windows 2000 as a seperate install. However, the mouse doesn't show up in windows 2000, it doesn't show up at all! When I start the computer in Windows 95, the mouse works fine.

I checked the device manage in win2000, and it doesn't see the mouse at all. I have no idea what to do.

Go to Microsoft's website and check their Hardware Compatibility List to see if your mouse is compatable with both 95 and 2000 Also check the driver to see if it is the proper one for your mouse.
