    try a different USB port

    if the mouse is of the old school rubber ball variety, clean it.

    reinstall your mouse drivers

    try a different mouse

    Add to all advice above;
    1) Change battery in wireless mouse.
    2) If optical, wired or ~less; try a plain mousemat instead of one with multi-colours on.
    3) If it's a wired mouse, possible the wires in the cable have broken somewhere.
