External mouse on Inspiron 2500, won't work

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Hello All,

After a quite some time on the web (Google), at the Dell site and other
places I cannot get my Logitech RS232 trackball going on the Inspiron
2500. When enabling COM1 through "Accessibility Options" as the Win Help
suggested it somehow reacts to another kind of mouse, but only by
beeping like crazy and writing cryptic letters all over the place
whenever I move it. With the trackball it does nothing (works on other PCs).

What can I do?

Regards, Joerg
