Question about Logitech Trackman Marble FX Trackball

2 Answers

Involuntary right click

I am running a logitech trackball (t-bb18) on xp home edition. The right click menu will pop up often making it difficult to navigate and nearly impossible to type. The software that came with will not install on xp. Downloaded set point software but has not solved the problem even after restarting. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Assuming this happens when you roll the trackball and don't click right? Seen this so many times.
Could be caused by:

IF Software Related:
Virus or Spyware taking focus of screen and cursor
Keylogger taking control of cursor
Other software running in background that is controlling screen refresh and cursor control.
Confused Drivers within Windows.

IF Hardware Related:
Sticky Right Click button

Fix: Process of elimination unfortunately. Remove all mouse hardware from Device Manager and setpoint. Start from scratch. (FYI: mouse won't work right at first reboot.. give it a sec to reinstall windows drivers operation will return to normal)

Trackball logitech


I use a Optical Trackman from Logitech and have foound that the contacts on the left click get dirty and won't work right or work partially. Especially frustrating when trying to highlight or shoot on FPS games. I took mine apart, just the housing , the electrics stay , and cleaned as well as I could , then blow it out with canned air. Got mine working again. My guess would be dirt or that button is worn out. Logitech has discontinued many of the Trackballs so a replacement may not be possible

How to edit the picture?


You can edit a picture using Microsoft Paint brush. It comes free with Microsoft Windows XP and other MS OS.
To access Paintbrush. Go to the Start button and in the pop up menu click run. In the open run box type "mspaint" command and press Enter key. A window will open and you can edit pics.
MS Paintbrush is a very simple software. If you want to do something really rich you have to separately buy or download and purchase "Adobe Photoshop" to really work like professional.

I think you should have been little more clear about your question.
I think you might be facing the problem with logon and logoff .
If the Icons are not displayed in the start menu. Then follow the steps below.
Right click the start
select properties
in this pop up menu click on Classic start menu.
Then click on customise icon.

Cursor when using Logitech Trackball sometimes drifts up or down


I finally just was able to solve this problem! I saw somewhere that someone had made sure their primary mouse was selected under hardware, which got me thinking. I thought I had seen a second mouse option somewhere. So, I went into my Control Panel > System > Device Manager and click the arrow next to Mice and other pointing devices. Sure enough, there were two listed. A seemingly generic one and my Logitech I've been using. I right clicked on the generic one and chose disable and the drifting IMMEDIATELY stopped. I went so far as to re-enable that generic to see if it was a fluke because it had stopped drifting on its own yesterday, nope as soon as I enabled the generic device, drifting started again. So Happy!!!

My logitech mouse wont move


Hello,
You need to install the driver for your logitech mouse to work.
If your mouse is not recognized then follow the following steps,

To work around this issue, try one of the solutions below:
  1. Unplug the USB device. It is possible that the connection is not secure and has become loose. This is one of the most common reasons for an error in detecting a USB device.
  2. Use the Device Manager to scan for new and recently installed hardware. From the start menu, select the 'Run' option. In the pop up box, type in Devmgmt.msc and then click 'Ok'. From the 'Action' Mmnu, click 'scan for hardware changes'. This will make Windows recognize any new devices that are installed. Now, close all device managers and control panels. Now see if your computer will read the USB device.
If that doesn't work, here is another option you can try:
Disable power management of the USB hub. To disable the power management on the USB hub, follow these steps:
  • Click Start, and then click Run.
  • Type devmgmt.msc in the Open box, and then click OK.
  • Expand the Universal Serial Bus controllers' node, and then follow these steps for each USB Root Hub that is listed:
  • Right-click the USB Root Hub and then click Properties.
  • Click the Power Management tab.
  • Click to clear the Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power check box, and then click OK.

My Trackman Marble FX stopped working after dealing with a virus. Never could get it to work, maybe I just wore it out. Bought a Logitech optical mouse but the left click is messed up. It locks and does a...


It could be a bad Trackman or a bad PS/2 Port.

1st test if it's the port by trying another mouse, or by trying this Trackman in another known working PS/2 port on another computer.  (don't forget to reboot each time you plug in a PS/2 device)

2nd, you can try using a PS/2 to USB adaptor.

These two have great reviews...
