USB mouse on Dell inspiron 3200

Hardware section does not have an area for laptop, so I have to post here. Sorry if seems not related.
I got an old Dell Inspiron 3200 laptop (with only one PS2 port) and want hook up external keyboard (PS2), and USB mouse(Microsoft Optical) so dont have to use the small keyboard and awkward touchpad.
Everywhere in Dell document just says just plug in and it should work, but it does not! The laptop just use the touchpad anyway, my USB optical mouse does not even light up!
Nowhere in BIOS has anything related to USB, I tried Win98, ME, and Win2k -- all the same, OS can see an "Unknown USB device" but cant do anything with it.
The mouse is good, works if plug to other PC, or convert to PS2 on this one.
