If your USB mouse is working OK try going into the Device Manager and you should see a PS/2 Compatible Mouse with a Yellow ! on it.
Select it and uninstall it and the warning box shouldn't appear any more.

There should be a BIOS option to disable the PS/2 mouse port. That error message will be from the BIOS/POST, so that's where you have to fix it. Just look carefully through each of the pages of the BIOS setup. It won't be toofar down the system ... I'd guess the 2nd or 3rd page.

Is your keyboard USB, too? I have heard/read that USB and PS/2 don't mix ... KB and Mouse should be the same type.
