Both mouse and mousekeys not working on new desktop

I bought an iBuyPower desktop two weeks ago and the stock mouse began to glitch out after about a week. It would stop responding, or open a link a dozen times by hovering over it, close tabs, not click on certain windows, or act like the middle button was being held down. I've tried uninstalling the driver, and it might've worked for about 10 minutes before it stopped functioning again. Today it finally just stopped responding all together. I don't have another mouse with me to try, but I tried turning on mousekeys. I checked the num lock and pointer speed but I'm not getting any response. I also just tried resetting and reinstalling windows 10. I have Avast and have checked for viruses as well. So tommorow I'm probably going to return the whole PC, but I'm posting this on case anyone knows any easy solutions I could be missing.

Also this was my first desktop purchase, and though I researched iBuyPower some, if it had problems so quickly should I exchange for something different? Do they commonly run into issues?
