What type of mouse is it ? model? Brand? USB? PS/2?


Have you tested this mouse on another computer?

have you tried using another mouse in the same port?

Try running mouseconfig, if it is on your system, to setup gpm, the Linux mouse server.
Then configure xorg.conf as necessary.

I've done that in the past and never had any problems. Just configure the mouse as a serial mouse.
