Advice 1: How to connect front usb ports

The presence of USB ports on the front panel of the system unit is a very convenient solution. Usually these ports are connected, but in some cases – for example, when assembling a new computer from components – these ports have to connect yourself.
How to connect front usb ports
Disconnect the computer from the network. Press the power button, this will reset the charge on the capacitors of the power supply. You can now connect the front USB ports.
Remove the left side panel of the computer (the computer is facing you). On the motherboard look for a small yellow or blue connectors, they usually are in the lower part.
Each such connector has two rows of pins (needles): a par five, in another four. Let's call the left or right side of the connector where there are two pins, side "A". Second, with one pin.
Five pins, starting from "A" have the following mark (in series): VCC1 +5V, Data -, Data +, Ground 1, NC.
The latter conclusion – NC – not used.
The four pins of the second row, starting from "A" have the following mark (in series): VCC2 +5V, Data -, Data +, Ground 2. The fifth output (pin) in this series no.
Consider the connector on the end coming from the USB port of the plume. It should be the inscription: VCC1, Data 1 -, Data 1 +, Gnd 1. The labels might be slightly different, but to understand just on the first slot under the pin is always specified by VCC or +5 V, the last Ground or GND.
In most cases, the wires of the connector have the standard colors:
+5V red
Data - white
Data + green
GND black
Connect the connector coming from the USB port of the Flex cable to the socket on the motherboard to the row of five pins. The first side "A" should be connected to VCC1 +5 V. the Fourth – Gnd 1. The last fifth pin remains free. In the second row next to it is a pin missing.
For easy wiring you can use special adapters to prevent incorrect connection. They are suitable for the connectors on the motherboard, usually blue, with a small side and a key and allows you to connect the adapter in only one way.
The pins on this adapter are marked as +5V, P2-, P2+, GND. If you have such an adapter (they can be supplied with the motherboard), plug in connector Flex cable in accordance with the label, then insert the adapter into the socket on the motherboard.
Connecting all USB ports, close the side cover. If you still are not quite sure of the correct connection after switching on computer, connect to the front port of the mouse with a USB connector. If the mouse will work fine, then everything is connected correctly and it is safe to connect flash drives and other equipment.

Advice 2 : How to connect a usb mouse

USB port Universal Serial Bus ("Universal serial bus") was not initially designed to connect mouse or keyboard, since this computer is equipped with separate entrances (often ps/2). However, in order to reduce the size and increasing the universalization of the USB port is increasingly used as the sole connection for low - and medium-speed external devices, including mouse.
How to connect a usb mouse
Insert the plug of the connecting cable of the devices into the appropriate connector on the computer - usually this is enough to connect a USB mouse. If it's a desktop computer, use the connector on the rear panel to leave free a slot on the front panel for frequently connected and disconnected USB devices. After you insert the plug into the socket, the operating system will automatically detect the new device and pick the driver for it from its database. If the OS will not be able to do so, or if your mouse has any special features that require additional software, use the installation CD from the set mouse. If this disc is missing - download the necessary files from the manufacturer's website.
Turn in your computer's BIOS, the option recognition of the USB mouse on startup of the computer, if after the installation the device is working properly. To do this, initiate a computer restart and go to BIOS setting - most often this requires pressing the delete key or f2 when the lower left corner of the screen prompted. Depending on the installed version of the base system I/o desired setting can be located in different sections of the panel settings, but most often it is necessary to look at the advanced tab, or integrated. The installation itself can also be named differently - for example, USB Mouse Support. Usually by default it is set to auto - change it to enable. Then exit the settings panel, while retaining your settings. After the next boot the computer mouse must be identified by system.
Start with connecting the adapter to the USB port and install its software, if it is a wireless mouse. In this case, immediately after connection, the operating system also tries to find a new device and pick the corresponding driver. If something goes wrong, you will have to do it yourself, as described in the first step. After installing the adapter, plug the mouse, making sure that it is installed the battery.

Advice 3 : How to connect two mice

Mouse call computer manipulator designed to control the cursor in the graphical interface of the operating system. Not often, but there is a need to have two such devices involved in the same OS. For example, it may be necessary, if you want some applications to use a special "gaming" mouse with high precision, and in other programs to go to normal.
How to connect two mice
Determine which port is connected the basic mouse - depends on the choice of the type of the second manipulator. If you are working on a desktop computer with a conventional system unit, most likely, it uses socket PS/2 rear panel - back connectors of the motherboard. Plug this standard has a cylindrical shape with multiple pins inside.
If you are using a USB port, then it needs to be flat rectangular shape. Connector PS/2 mouse can only be one - if it is not used in the main manipulator of this kind, you can use it to connect additional. Otherwise, you will only fit a USB mouse. In portable computers PS/2 is rarely used, so it is most likely that both the mouse you will have to connect via the USB ports.
Pick up the mouse with a connector of the desired type (PS/2 or USB). USB socket (on front, side, or rear of the computer case is not important) you just plug the new device and it is recognized and used by the operating system. But through socket PS/2 mouse must be connected only at the switched off computer, as as downloading the driver along with system boot.
If the second mouse will be wireless, its installation will be different from connecting a regular USB device only to those that use not the mouse itself, and its adapter.
Described paragraphs will allow you to use the optional mouse to manipulate the single cursor on the computer screen. There is additional software that allows you to use two (or more) of the manipulator, each of which has its own cursor, and sometimes they are even connected to different computers in the local network. Such applications have not yet received wide distribution, as it does not fit into the concepts of modern operating systems of personal computers. If you want you can try out that option - for example, it may be a system MultiMouse (
