Question about Computers & Internet
When I first rebooted the ball WAS working vertically, now it's not again...
No worries, it's an easy fix.
Theres some crud on the rollers inside the ball socket. It builds up after a while whether its a trackball or standard mouse.
The ball is usually held in by a ring with two indentations on it. Use a pen or something hard and pointy to turn it counter clock wise about 1/4 turn.
Take off the ring, take out the ball.
Inside you'll find two rollers offset 90 degrees from one another. The center of one or both has a buildup that keeps the ball from turning the roller.
Use a Q-tip with alcohol to clean it. Sometimes you can just scrape it with a fingernail.
When your done, put the ball back in, the ring back on, quarter twist clockwise and you're ready to go.
Thanks for using FixYa

I checked the feature of the mouse. The mouse can be reprogrammed only for left and right handed person. I guess you need to get the mouse replaced as we already tried replacing the battery.
