plugged it in before turning on the pc etc and the left and right clicks are working, the optical red 'light' reacts by shining brighter when the mouse is moved, but the cursor on screen doesnt move.

Optical mice require a textured surface to work correctly. Also, not reflective. That is why there are mouse pads.

"i used other mice before on the same surface and they worked without problem" And the other mice were of the optical type, not ball mice?

Do you know how to move about in Windows using only the keyboard? If so, go to device manager and see if Windows says the mouse is working properly.
