usb connections on laptop

I have a new Acer laptop with one usb2 port on one side and three on the other. Can anyone tell me why my usb mouse will work with the one port but not with any of the other three? The three ports do work as I have used a printer and usb adaptor with them.

Refresh USB Ports
Use Drive clean up to remove USB device drive info from the registry
click here
In device manager Uninstall EVERYTHING under the heading USB,
reboot the PC let XP find and install new hardware.
Your equipment should now be recognised.
