A couple of questions:

A web search tells me that this machine has a touchpad. Does the touchpad work and the mouse not work, or are both of them not working?

If it's only the mouse, have you tried a different mouse (it probably won't make a difference, but, if it does, in might indicate a hardware issue)?

What is the make/model of the mouse?
