    If your mouse is sometimes working right and other times it doesn't, it leads me to believe you could possibly have a faulty usb cable or port or even the mouse itself could be a problem. I'd first check it with another mouse and see how it does. If the problem persists, then there might be something screwy with your mouse configuration. It's been a long time since I ran Mandriva, but when I was running it, there was a utility called "mousedrake" that you used to configure your mouse. If your mouse configuration is way off that could cause the problems too.

    Just some ideas...

    If your keyboard is working but your mouse isn't, open a terminal a run this command...
    Code:
    /sbin/lsmod |grep -i evdev
    If nothing is returned post back and let me know.
