I would make sure it's absolutely clean on the bottom, then try it again. I hope you got it to work! :)

good thought bwpatton about the tape over the optical. If it doesn't work - unplug it, reboot the computer, then plug it back in and dont touch it until it says 'working properly'. Return it if its not working properly. Basic mice don't need extra drivers.

Uhh, did u install the software that came with the mouse, If that dosent work then try looking on the bottom of the mouse, see if there is a sticker or some tape or something on the bottom.
