You may need to enable it in the BIOS, some BIOS require the USB keyboard and mouse to be enabled.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

What kind of mouse (manufacturer/model)?

Did the mouse come with additional software or is it supposed to be PnP? If it came with software...did you install same?

Open Device Manager and click on the +'s by the USB controllers and see if there are any yellow exclamation points by anything

Is it a new mouse?
Are you replacing a currently working mouse?
Is current mouse PS/2 or USB?
