modprobe.conf was done away with for the latest version of module-init-tools. if you google, I'm sure you'll find out more about that. If you have older packages which need it, it will be sufficient to simply do:

rm -f /etc/modprobe.conf
touch /etc/mofprobe.conf

but I suggest you first try

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

as this may solve your problem.

Your usb mouse requres (among others eg properly configured modules for your system) USB_HID (HID=human interface device). Check you have this.

Your graphics card driver will be model-dependent. No-one can help you unless you tell us what it is.
