Old Vaio and Mouse Problem

    I have an old Vaio Laptop PCG-F650 and most of the time use an
    external compaq PS/2 mouse through the 9-pin connector in the back
    instead of the touch pad.

    The external mouse works fine, but whenever I boot the computer anew,
    the mouse freaks out only by touching it; it's all over the screen.
    Then, I have to unplug the mouse, touch the mouse pad a couple of
    times; the pointer eventually stops going erratic. After this
    procedure, I can plug the mouse back in through the 9-pin and the
    mouse works fine. Now, I have to repeat this procedure everytime I
    shut-down windows. I tried disabling the touch pad, but this does not
    help.

    Anyone has an idea? I'd appreciate any advice.

    Thanks.

    I don't think PS/2 is really "hot swappable", is it? Might be damage done.
    Maybe you're plugging into a PS/2 keyboard port?
    I'm just grasping here.
