[Solved] USB mouse doesn't work

Hello,
I'm having troubles getting any USB mouses to work on my laptop (an Acer Aspire E5-573). I've confirmed them to work on other systems, and the USB ports work, so I'm incredibly confused.
This may be related to problems I've had before where my touchpad completely broke, but it magically fixed itself without my intervention. It seems that my touchpad has, in my systems eyes, become the sole mouse accessible on my system.

Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:8001 Intel Corp. Integrated Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 0bda:0129 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTS5129 Card Reader Controller
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 064e:9402 Suyin Corp. HD Webcam
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0489:e09c Foxconn / Hon Hai 
Bus 002 Device 010: ID 03f0:134a HP, Inc Optical Mouse
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

I'm sorry if this is an easy/obvious fix, but I'm completely bewildered.

Thanks in advance!
Allie

This rodent?

Bus 002 Device 010: ID 03f0:134a HP, Inc Optical Mouse

Output of

xinput list

?

The notebook has a touchpad toggle (Fn+F7?) - are touchpad and mouse operating mutually exclusive?

Sorry for the late reply, but without me doing anything the touchpad stopped working, and then managed to fix itself and the USB mouse problem completely. Thanks for the help anyways!
