Mouse will not work

Hi, I am working on a Compaq Presario desktop S50000NX, with (Windows Millennium ME) OS
I’m not able to get the mouse to function, I am using a PS/2 connection, and I also tried the USB port. I used another mouse with a PS/2 connection and still nothing, download the drivers for ( HP Multimedia Keyboard/Mouse Driver Update) and for (Intel Extreme Graphics Driver Update) on my other computer. The keyboard is functioning but not the mouse. I can’t do anything without the mouse. I went into CMOS and set the boot sequence to start from CD-ROM just to see what would happen so that I could install the drivers; still not working. Can anyone please help me with this issue?
Thanks

Try system restore to a point were the mouse was working if you can

Is there a way to get to system restore with the mouse?

To access System Restore without a mouse
In Windows XP it would be:-

Press Windows key + R (brings up RUN window)
Type
%SystemRoot%\System32\restore\rstrui.exe
Press ENTER

Don't know if that works in Windows ME though.

Don't get why it's not coming out right.
It works if you copy & paste the link part into the address box and then copy a paste the second bit onto the end. Sorry about that.
