You don't normally need to, but try "disabling the touchpad when a mouse is connected". There should be a setting for that in the touchpad driver software (usually made by 'Synaptics'). Look for the touchpad icon in the system tray and double-click it to open the settings interface.
On my laptop, the touchpad and mouse can be used simultaneously but yours may be different.
Also, try plugging mouse in to a different usb port.

I have tried running a diagnostic check using the computer`s original "drivers" CD. Strangely, the mouse works while in the diagnostic mode but as soon as I exit it (which automatiacally restarts the computer)it stops functioning.

Click the "Device Settings" tab
There should be a 'Disable' button which disables the touchpad for all future Windows sessions.
Alternatively, tick the option to "Disable internal pointing device when external one is attached"

However, I think I can remember seeing this option there in the past. Could an update to the driver or something have removed this option ?
