Now it came with a optical mouse and roller ball mouse,ive tryed plugging them in usb and the ports but they dont seem too work, icant try too find anything as i cant use a mouse on it not even me own. Any suggestions appreciated please . thanks

a USB mouse and install a driver for it - you shouldn't have to do anything.

Which version of Windows is installed on thjis computer?

i have a ps/2 mouse and keyboard to use so that i can go back to basics with PC.try using these, then navigate to device manager and uninstall USB drivers in device manager then reboot your system maybe it`s just needs that. oryou could try to download drivers from the mouses manufacturer.
