    The service that runs the mouse did not load at startup. For example i gave a Labtec mouse, and the mouse driver process is mouse32a.exe. Yours could be different....

    How old is this computer? Try changing the mouse to PS2 mouse since the system in Safe Mode is apparently not loading the COM port drivers. It is unusual that the COM port(s) do not load under SM. What is the make and model number of this computer?
