If you're sure it's not broken you should start by telling us what has been changed in your configuration.

Try this as root:

create this file with your favorite editor:
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/killmouse

And add this to it:

#!/bin/sh
/usr/bin/killall moused


Save it and do:
chmod 555 /usr/local/etc/rc.d/killmouse

Then edit this file:
/etc/rc.conf

and add this line to it:
killmouse_enable="YES"

Reboot and see if the mouse works. If not, reverse the steps.

What does the mouse section of your xorg.conf file look like?

/etc/X11/xorg.conf

TeRReFCommented:
Maybe your mouse is broken (partially) or something has changed in your configuration. I can't think of another reason.

How much more detailed do you want it? You will need to generate a xorg.conf first and can edit that file later. Just take the time to read the man page. It has all the information you need (and more).

Check that nothing has killed the usbd process, or is preventing it from (re)loading. This process is responsible for associating usb devices with /dev entries. It could also be possible that during some sort of upgrade that usbd's config file (usbd.conf) has been changed.
