you need the proper drivers, what OS do you run?(e.g:Windows vista, Windows 7, Mac OSX) and who made your mouse?

Why do you need the drivers? Simple, they are the instructions your computer uses to "talk" to your mouse, right now, your mouse is just speaking gibberish to your computer.

I run windows XP but they're cracked.. i ve had this pc for 2-3 years and this is the first time my mouse doesnt work.. I've tried many new mouses but they all fail to work.. In my other pc (the one im running now) all seems to be fine with the mouses and i know that there is something wrong with the other computer. Can you help me?

Does your USB drive recognize other devices plugged into it? If it doesn't then it might be that you USB port is broken.

First, piracy should never be mentioned here; fair warning.
Second, try another USB port.
I still think it may be a driver.
Here's a quick fix:
Plug the mouse in, go to control panel, click "mouse", select the hardware tab, you should see a device with a name like USB mouse, click on it, hit the properties button, under the driver tab there should be an uninstall button, click it (if it is greyed out, go to the general tab, and click "change settings" first), after the mouse is uninstalled unplug your mouse and plug it back in ( for best results, you should be connected to the internet). Windows should reinstall your mouse automatically!

NOTE: I prepared these instructions under windows 7 (it may vary slightly)

In device manager, is anything got a yellow exclamation mark or red x on it?

There shouldn't be, but the yellow mark means that the driver is there, but broken. The Red X means that the driver is missing. This should fix that.

which devices have marks by them?
