Keyboard and mouse hang / MS-Windows

PROBLEM - The system keyboard and mouse hang when Microsoft Windows is installed without a having a mouse attached to the system mouse port. Additionally, the same failure can occur if Microsoft Windows for workgroups version 3.11 is installed on top of Windows or by itself. In this case it does not matter if there is a mouse attached or not.

Machines AFFECTED - some 6382, 6384, 6387 VP2 systems with 2S2P (long) planars

SOLUTION - Microsoft Windows and Windows for workgroups require a patch to fix a BUG in their code as a result of the way they address the Valuepoint system board keyboard and mouse controller. This is only a problem on system boards using the TI version of this controller. VLSI controllers work error free and are not affected if the patch code is installed on systems with this controller. The patch is called IBMKBFIX.386 and is available on library and the IBM BBS.
