Bus Mouse Does Not Work with Video 7 VRAM II


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows NT Server version 3.1
  • Microsoft Windows NT Workstation version 3.1
  • Microsoft Windows NT Advanced Server, version 3.1


If you use a bus (inport) mouse with a Video 7 VRAM II video adapter, the mouse becomes inoperative.


The Video 7 VRAM II adapter has IRQ 2 enabled. The documentation describes how to disable IRQ 2 incorrectly if you have a video BIOS (basic input/output system) of version 8.57nel or 8.59nel. This cannot be confirmed because Video has gone out of business.


Change the jumper on the adapter to the "enable" setting, effectively disabling IRQ 2.
