Just thought id point this out to ya before ya do any damage. NEVER plug a mouse or keyboard in while the computer is turned on, they arent hot swappable, and it can damage the ports. Doesnt happen often, but it does happen

Do you have software for the mouse? Mouse Driver?

I've never had to install drivers for a mouse before, unless if it has cool features on it. Have you tried using the PS/2 connection? Try to see if it works in Safe Mode.
