I'm trying to do a lighted mouse mod, and as such, picked up a $2 mouse to fool around with (its my first mod.) Upon reading lots of these types of giudes, I'm at a loss as to where to power my LEDs. My mouse only uses 4 pins on the PS/2 connector, and there are only 4 wire leads on the mouse end. I did a continuity test, and only 4 of the pins are used, but I have no idea how to power this thing!

Thanks for the help, though there in lies my problem: there are only 4 wires total on the mouse end of the cable, each attached to a sesnor (both buttons, and both axes.) Should I try to find a PS/2 with 6 cables and connect it to the mouse?
