  1. I have a computer running windows NT with some PS2 mouse port problems. I am wanting to upgrade to a usb mouse but i don't know if Windows NT will support it. Does windows NT have usb support? The computer is running Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 1.

    So you have to "downgrade" to a serial mouse :)

    Actually, if your motherboard's chipset is sufficiently supported, try the Dell USB Nt4 driver. I got it working on an old Toshiba & I could use USB drives, mouse & keyboard & I could even print via the USB port.

    It's worth a try.
