Is it a PS2 type connection? [Round, uses the connector next to the keyboard one.]

Turn off PC. Remove the connector and plug back in again, reboot and it may pick it up. If not look in device manager to see if there are any conflicts with your mouse settings. [Yellow exclamation mark] If so remove the mouse driver from there and reboot again to see if the install wizard will find and install drivers.

Use windows own driver or if the mouse has it's own driver insert the disk when requested by the wizard. j.
