Should that work we at least know it is not your USB controller
Sounds like his machine is getting stuck on the bios screen so drivers are a non issue with his problem.
I would try plugging in the mouse to different USB ports and see if the problem occurs on all USB ports.
Motherboard bios may need to be updated or a setting in the bios needs to be changed.
You can also see if the problem occurs on another pc.
I have a USB hub that used to lock up the pc on the bios screen on an older board I had, had to unplug it, reset the pc, and it would boot up and I would plug the hub back in.
