[ubuntu-uk] embarrassing mouse issue

After years of trying to persuade my step dad to use ubuntu instead of 
windows he has finally agreed to let me install it alongside win7!

But his mouse is not recognised on the live cd.

the machine is a sony viao VGC-LV1S pc (all in the screen) with an 
internal sensor for a wireless keyboard and mouse (not USB) and the 
keyboard works fine but not the mouse.

from the live cd I have tried lsusb to see if the mouse appears but it 
does not (nor does the keyboard which is what makes me think it isn't USB)

After that I am out of ideas any suggestions?
