Have you restarted the computer since it was plugged in. Also is it a usb or PS2. Have you installed drivers for it?

most mice are plug and play,
but id suggest to use a PS2 to USB converter, or try a USB mouse all together, because your PS2 I/o could be malfunctioning, if ur previous mouse was USB, try another USB.


but to access anything, with out a mouse, just use the windows key, arrow keys, tab/shift, and enter an u can do most things, just dont get upset at how slow that can all be.
