Optical mouse works in bios but not with windows

I custom built a PC today using an MSI motherboard. I started it up and checked the bios settings but changed nothing as the default settings were fine. I can use the mouse on the msi bios. I then exited bios and installed the OS windows 7. During the install I was unable to use my logitech optical usb mouse however the keyboard was fine.

Windows installed successfully but the mouse still wont work. I would be grateful for any sugestions.

Thank you

Was USB Mouse support enabled in the Bios? Try unplugging it & plugging it into a different USB port & see in it is automatically recognized & installs driver.
