Another possibility if things still don't work is to use a USB to PS/2
adapter, assuming the mouse plugs in via USB at the moment. Your mouse may

I don't know what kind of machine you have, but it's rare on 'modern' systems
(last 5 years or so) to have problems with USB mice. Still, you never know.
