Even if the mouse port was taken out of Device Manager it should still be detected and reinstalled on the next reboot. If not, you can use the keyboard to go to the Control Panel and System applet (Start->Settings->Control Panel->System) and then use the right arrow key to go to the Hardware tab and the tab key to go to the Device Manager button. Press the Enter key and you will see the Device Manager screen. Here you will see if the mouse is disabled (my guess) or removed. If disabled, simply reenable it. If it doesn't show up at all press Alt-A and choose Scan for Hardware Changes to redetect the mouse. If the mouse isn't redetected then it could either be a bios issue or a bad mouse.

Well, I've done everything suggested but still was unable to detect a mouse. Everything appears in Device Manager like keyboard etc. but not the mouse. I've plugged in a new mouse but still the computer didn't detect it after rebooting. I see you suggested it's a bios issue, How can I fix that? or Is there any other way to add the mouse port back to Device Manager/Computer?

Is this a ps2 or usb mouse. If it's usb check here:

If it's a ps2 and the port isn't showing up then you will need to check with your manual on how to get into your bios at startup (common keys are Del, F1, F2 or F10). Check to make sure that the port is enabled. If it doesn't show up as an option in the bios then it cannot be disabled from there and the port might be bad.

Hi.
Right clik my computer icon, clik hardware, then hardware wizard. Click next. Choose uninstall/unplug a device and click next. Choose uninstall a device and click next. Choose Show hidden devices. After that, yuo see ps/2 port or some other mouse port with yellow mark. Remove it
and reboot machine. Note. There is some unknown devices, one of them removes every device from computer, so do not touch them, only mouse or ps/2 related devices.

Hi there

Hi I am experiencing the same problem trying to get my cordless Logitech mouse functioning on a PS/2 port.

Can you please tell me specifically what settings to alter in BIOS? There are a number of items and I cant see one that relates to a mouse port. Thanks
