Spliting power on a PS/2 port...
I have slimline desktop w/ Keyboard and mouse PS/2 ports. The keyboard has a keyboard plugged in (Duh) and I need to use the Mouse port for a mouse and to supply power to my GPS reciever. I have tried using a "Y" adaptor, the kind for laptops that have only one PS/2 port, but I don't think the GPS will power up on the keyboard port of the adaptor and themouse will not work on the keyboard port of the adaptor.
So, how do I get the GPS to get power?
And no I don't have a serial port to move the mouse to and I really don't want to spend $40 on a USB to serial adaptor.
Any info would be great. Thanks!
