First doulbe check that the mouse cable is inserted correctly into the back of the PC and that there are no bent pins on the mouse cable connector.

Next check that your Mouse stanza in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file looks something like this:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier  "Mouse0"
Driver      "mouse"
Option      "Protocol" "auto"
Option      "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
