It sounds like you need a driver for that mouse. You can Google the name of your mouse followed by the model number and the word driver.

Something like this: "genius mouse 454-xyz driver"

That seems to be one of the old Dell/Logitech mice. If the laptop has Windows 7 on it, i doubt you will find a driver for the mouse.

Windows 7 uses a different type of driver than XP, so a lot of the old XP hardware will not work.

I do not know about your locale, but where I live you can get good new mice for $10 and under.
