Make sure you have the mouse plugged in tight in the back of the computer before you start the computer.
There are two types of mouse interfaces: the PS2 Serial Style (round) and the USB Style (flat square).
If you have the PS2 round type it must plug into the Green Port on the back of the computer. The purple port is for the Keyboard. Also, the PS2 type is not Plug and Play. You cannot unplug it and plug it back in while the computer is running if you do the computer must be rebooted.
The USB type mouse is plug and play. You can take it out and put it back in without having to reboot the computer.
If you have a usb type mouse maybe the usb port that you have it plugged into is not working. Try plugging it into another usb port.
Clean the disc well and try again. Then try putting another disc in the drive and see if it will read that disc. Try your dvd game disc in another computer and see if it is accessible there. Sounds like the disc drive is possibly bad and can't read the disc properly.
just looking at the specifications, it should work with All CD's and Read Normal DVD discs, the movies that you can rent and buy from any store but it appears its a combo drive (Cd burner, and a DvD reader) It will only read DVD-rom and maybe few other things but it wont play any r or rw dvd's. It might also read already burned dvd r and rw discs but it wont read a empty one.
if it won't read any dvd's it could be a dirty lens. here's a video on the cleaning, its annoyingly loud but shows how to clean the lens with rubbing alcohol.
may want to turn the volume down in advance:
its for a ps2 but the drive is basically the same, and you would clean the lens in the same way.
