Default ASUS A8V R2.01 Mouse not working

This board boots OK but neither a PC mouse nor USB mouse will work.There is no mouse pointer but when I move the mouse around I can see desktop Icons being highlighted, but clicking the mouse has no effects.

The board is entirely Panasonic caps and none are bulging. No obvious damage either.
I suspect a faulty bios.

I found a download on Softpedia 1018.002.

Any other experience or suggestions with this board?

try another video card - your missing a layer.
mouse pointer is overlaid on the image in hardware on the videocard.

The problem was the video card as STJ predicted. I successfully loaded a new Linux OS via a USB stick. The USB mouse worked for the initial load, but when I restarted to do the update phase, the monitor was displaying artifacts. Replaced the video card and all is well.
Thanks everyone!
