    Is the mouse USB or PS2 connected?

    What was the reason for the BIOS update?

    the mouse is PS2 connected , optical.

    I visit intel site and saw that my BIOS is far behind their up to date so I decide to update it. I have no problem to solve.
    I use XP PRO SP2.
    I notice that at the end of BIOS update it asked a permision for a program to run at startup ( I use a permission program to watch startup) but it was very quick and imidetally after it their installtation had done restart and when the PC came back I get a message that the update program of the BIOS had passed ok.

    Just an observation, you should NEVER update the BIOS unless you are trying to solve a problem with some issue that the manufacturer has provided a fix for in the nature of a new BIOS.

    The chances are quite high that a BIOS flash will fail and effectively ruin the motherboard, or cause unwanted problems. Its not something you ever do unless you have a defined need.

    borrow a usb mouse. Maybe your port is broken - it happened to me.

    Your port was broken as the result of BIOS update?

    I have ruined the ps2 port on previously owned computers twice with static electricity (just a tiny spark will do it) First time it was my first computer, and I was plugiing in the mouse, the second time on another computer, I was installing a printer cable into the parallell port. The computers were off. So, If everything else but the mouse is working, try a usb mouse. That would correct it whether it be a .....

    DEAD PORT or DEAD MOUSE

    Thank you.
    It turns out to be a problem in the new BIOS.
    I put it at default option and that solve the problem.
