What version of Linux?

Is there an xorg.conf file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf)? If so, what mouse driver is specified? There will be an entry something like this:
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "........"
        Option      "Protocol" "auto"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
        Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"
