Pendrive linux mouse issues

Hello everyone. I have never used linux before constantly just loaded up ubuntu to try it out. Well at my college campus the student computers are limited to what they can do. I installed Pendrive Linux on my 8GB Corsair Flash Voyager USB stick and it works great at school. I allows me to use IRC and connect like I wanted and I saw how I could use it as well as my own PC to carry around with me. Well I got it to work on my Home PC but for some reason the mouse is not set right. When I move it left to right or X-axis it actually moves up and down. Whats worse is that if I move it up and down nothing happens. At first I thought it was inverted but nope. Well I cannot get to the configuration because I do not know the hot key or how to access the start menu it has with my keyboard. I use a Microsoft SideWinder Mouse. Maybe cause its microsoft? hehe Any help is appritiated and thank you for you time.
