It is very possible that it is a power issue (I'm assuming its usb). Do you have adapters that came with it that make it from usb to the standard ps2 adapters? If so try that. But also try unpluging in your other usb devices. Do you have a lot of them pluged in. If so are they in a usb port expander? You may have solved your problem.

not exactly, but there is a fix for your problem. Do you have a desktop or laptop. If you have a desktop you should buy a pci 4-port usb card which will give you 4 good powered usb ports. If you have a laptop, i believe you can get a pcmcia card with usb ports aswell and this will to the trick also. Just google for them or search newegg. I bought a 4 port usb 2.0 pci adapter card for my pc for about $15 i think.

i dont think i have any pci slots on my motherboard and if i did how do i install it?

every computer has pci slots im pretty sure yours does too. They may all be filled up but you have them. If you pull off the side cover of your case, you should see towards the bottom left-hand side a series of rows of white slots. Some are probably occupied already, but you most likely have one free. To install a usb card in one, you just push it in the slot and close the case back up (you do this when your machine is off). It is actually very simple as im sure you will see. Then once you boot your computer up it should recoganize it if you are running xp but if not then just install the software that it comes with and you are set to go.

If you would like pictures check out this website. It does a good job expalining, but unfortunatly it kindof makes it seem like its a hard task but its really not.
