Try unplugging it, plugging back in then booting the machine. I know it sounds silly but I've had similar issues with PS/2 mice & keyboards

Do you have any other PS/2 mice laying around that you try in order to eliminate the mouse as the problem?

Another option is to try that mouse on another PC. Sounds like the mouse has failed, how old is it?

It might sound obvious, but if it is a mouse with a ball in it you might need to clean the rollers and ball. Another thing, have you plugged it into the correct port (green)? Of course, the mouse may well have died and you need a replacement.

Rather the mouse than the motherboard

Let's hope it's just the mouse

Thanks for your help, probably the mouse is broken. Since the device manager gives me an error.
