What is your mouse type ? usb ? if yes try do :
(lsmod before to see if module already loaded)

/sbin/modprobe usb-uhci
/sbin/modprobe uhci
/sbin/modprobe uhci-hcd

/sbin/lspci | grep -i usb
see /sbin/modprobe procedures already typed; and if it work add them to /etc/rc.d/rc.local to enable it at boot
