I don't have enough information to really help you, but if your mouse
plugs into your PS/2 port, 95% of the time you choose the PS/2
protocol and /dev/psaux as your device in /etc/X11/XF86config:

    Protocol    "PS/2"
    Device      "/dev/psaux"

If it's not a PS/2 mouse, you might consider running 


because it lets you fiddle with mouse properties until the mouse works.
