What kinds of mice have you tried? Obviously, USB or wireless, but did you try PS2?

There are very few mouses that are laser that plug in to the PS/2 port. When you plug in the mouse, do you see that the driver gets installed right? Also, is this a desktop or a laptop?

its a desktop, and i have to admit, this mouse is about 2 years old... It plugs into the teal port in the back (w/e that one is). And it's made by Labtec. I've also tried my wireless mouse.
