Hardware problem (I think)

I have an old IBM 300GL, I bought second hand.
Recently it has started (consistently on boot), coming up with
8603 Pointing device error.
And the mouse (PS2) is unusable.
This used to happen, previously, but a switch off and on fixed it. It
just does not go away now.
My research indicates that this is a system board failure.
I know we have some very knowledgeable hardware people in the community.
Any idea how, if possible, this can be fixed? It's not critical, I can
get by without a mouse on the machine (it's a server). Just wondering
whether this is the beginning of a general failure.
To every Ph.D. there is an equal and opposite Ph.D.
