If this happens with multiple mice and in safe mode as well as normal mode, the problem is with the hardware - very possibly the usb port or motherboard. Do other usb device work properly? Do you have more than one usb port? If so, have you tried them all?

 

Look in Device Manager - are there any yellow or red symbols?
