Mouse Stopped Moving on Debian System

I have had a debian system up and running for about 2 months now with no problem using woody distro. This morning when i booted the system, the mouse will no longer move, however the right and left buttons and the scrool wheel work as normal.

There appears to be nothing wrong wtih the hardware mouse itself, I tried it on a windows labtop with no problem.

The mouse section of the XF86Config -4 file is:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifer "configured Mouse"
Driver "mouse"
Option "CorePointer"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "True"
Option "ZAXISMapping" "4 5"

Section "Input"
Identifier "generica Mouse"
Driver "mouse"
Option "SendCoreEvents" "True"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
option "Emulate3Buttons" "True"
Option "ZAXISMapping" "4 5"

It is a ps2 optical mouse (IBM Model MQ27FO)

Any help is greatly appriciated.

Thank you in advance
