First check to see if PnP is enabled in the CMOS.
The problem could be that the Registry is corrupt,Try using the old mouse and open the device manage,select the mouse in tree and click the remove button,then try installing the mouse.
Run printer setup from the software that accompany the printer,to install drivers and printer software.

Did you see the mouse's arrow?
If no, try looseing the connector. You might have tighten it too much that there is a connection problem. The same goes to the printer.
OR
Try installing the device driver for the mouse and printer.

Hopefully your two problems are unrelated...

You mentioned it was a Serial mouse. Did you have a PS2 mouse before? if so you need to tell windows. (i assume) Goto Control Panel - Mouse - General - Show all devices, and select your mouse.

-Canyou print a test/config page from the actual printer itself?
-Swap your printer cable with a known good one.
-From a DOS prompt do a DIR > LPT1: (maybe your port's stuffed)
-Reinstall your drivers

Good luck

Maybe all COM@LPT ports are disabled in BIOS, go into the bios -> something like PERIPHERAL SETUP and find COM1,COM2 @ LPT settings, set it to AUTO and QUIT with ssavin settings.
