go to device manager and see if the device is listed under usb, if it is there right click and update driver.
go to settings of the mouse under device manager and change the mouse settings if it barely works, there are adjustments that sets the speed.

if it is a PS2 mouse ( round 5 pin plug usually green or violet) it must be plugged in BEFORE switching the computer on , if it is a USB mouse it should have a driver already loaded that will recognize it and run it

No clues on "damn laptop" like model, age, warranty, if USB ports work with other devices like data sticks, printer, external drive.
Or about "mouse". Wireless or corded? Optical or roller ball? Did software come with the mouse or can you download it?That is all that can be discussed with you because of incomplete information.

It could be that the mouse can't track the surface it's on. Try getting a sheet of paper with printing on it - junk mail will do - and use the mouse on top of that. If that still doesn't work, it's time to buy a new mouse. For even more confirmation, if you can swap the suspect mouse with one from a known working computer, you can see if the problem follows the mouse or computer.

You can test this quite easily. Borrow a mouse and see if it works differently in your computer. Put your mouse in another computer and see if it works differently. once you do this, you will know for sure if it is the mouse, or your computer.

try the mouse on someone else's computer -- if it works there, the problem is in your laptop. if it doesn't, the mouse is likely dead

Try the mouse in a different port and on another computer. If the mouse is totally dead on all ports and all computers you will need another. If it is just one port that is affected then you will have to live with it.

Blame yourself. All you have to do is buy another mouse.
