It must be a serial mouse if you changed the ribbon cable.
Check in device manager to see if Com1 and Com2 are working, (they could be disabled in your bios) the serial mouse will need one of them.

Also disable PS2 mouse in the bios, if it is a serial mouse.

Also try searching for new hardware, in add /remove hardware, a little difficult without a mouse, but possible.
