i get the mouse drivers from hp? Which for some reason don't have linux drivers for it, only drivers for windows systems..

already ran xf86config ?
if yes, try editing your /etc/X11/XF86Config manually
there should be a section looking something like this ->
Code:
Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier  "Mouse1"
    Driver      "mouse"
    Option "Protocol"    "IMPS/2"
    Option "Device"      "/dev/mouse"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection
if you have a wheelmouse than
Code:
Option "Protocol"    "IMPS/2"
is very likely to work...otherwise you could try
Code:
Option "Protocol"    "PS/2"
btw, this is how I got my touchpad working:
Code:
 Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier  "Mouse2"
    Driver      "mouse"
    Option      "Protocol"      "PS/2"
    Option      "Device"        "/dev/psaux"
 EndSection
and at the bottom of the file:
Code:
    InputDevice "Mouse2" "SendCoreEvents"
    InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
