First testing the mouse on a "older" comp, does it work there? Next testing, does the PS/2 plug hole on the new board work? Some of the newer boards only work with keyboards on PS/2. On testing, if the mouse works, there are adapters "PS/2 female" to "USB Type A male" on Amazon for a few Bucks, that may be a way to work around a non-fuctional or missing PS/2 plug-hole. - Yamaban.
