It shouldn't be disabled. What brand of mouse, type USB/Ps2, what OS?

If you are comfortable navigating Windows via the keyboard, take a look in device manager and see if there is a problem there.

Why are you in safe Mode, what went wrong to take you there?

More info needed.

Cheers

semi-common problem when using a usb mouse.

Try a ps2 adapter....cost about 3 bucks i guess.

thanks guys (billy t/metla) will try a ps2 adaptor

why was i in safe mode? - blue screen - recommendation was to run win setup prog (which i guess is on the start-up floppy) but seeing as i was playing round with msconfig/startup i thought i might get back to it and recheck the unchecks!
