Plug in the PS/2 mouse when the computer is off and then start it up. These should not be plugged in or out when the computer is running.
Open Device Manager (devmgmt.msc) and expand Mice and other pointing devices. What do you see in there? If you see the mouse, double-click it and tell us what Device status has.

I also have the same problem and I can't seem to find a way to fix it anywhere I have tried everything. I own a Toshiba L515-S4960. When I bought this laptop I bought an external mouse on the same day because I don't like the pad on a laptop. The mouse is a USB hookup it worked for about 6 months then quit. I thought the mouse was broken so I bought another one and that one worked for about a month. I plugged the mouse into my desktop just to make sure the new mouse was not broken which it is not. So how do I get an external mouse to work with my laptop.

You might want to consider a wireless mouse. I have used two wireless "mouses" (Logitech) on my computer. The first version required "loading" software from a CD. The second (newer version) booted up alutmatically once I inserted the USB device.

My Toshiba Satellite L750 is 10 months old. I was able to use a USB external mouse with it with no problems until 2 months ago. Initially, I thought it was the mouse that died, but now I know the mouse can still work with another computer, so it's my Satellite laptop that's the problem. The touchpad works fine, but I would like to regain my ability to use a USB external mouse.
