borrowed different mouse but still no luck. There is nowhere for PS2 to plug into so am at a loss. can't try to resolve issue on machine (I'm using laptop for this) as can't use either mouse or keyboard - any other suggestions?????

I've also tried putting back up CD into drive but nothing happens???

Have you tried ALL the different usb ports? front and back?

You are trying them (mouse and keyboard) by booting up with them already plugged into a different usb port - aren't you?
