If you do have a mouse with a track-ball, then rotate the "ring" that holds the track-ball inside the mouse, to "unlock" the ring. Remove the ring. Look inside the mouse. You'll see two rollers.
Look for accumulated "gunk" in a ring at the center of each roller. Gently scrape each roller, to clean it. Re-insert the mouse. Re-insert the ring. Rotate it, to "lock" the ring into place.
If you don'y use a mouse mat then your sensor (if you use a mouse with a censor) is picking up bumps, or changes in the surface it is moving over and turning it into jumps on your screen and using a mouse mat should solve this. If you use a mouse with a ball the take the ball out and give th rollers inside a good clean.
Does your mouse use a ball for movement? Look at bottom of mouse. If so you could have a ditty unit. You can turn the ball cover counter clockwise and remove the ball. Clean the ball and the rollers inside the mouse. Replace the mouse ball and cover and retry the mouse.
You can remove the roller for cleaning by untwisting the locking cap on the bottom of the mouse. Usually you have to clean the shafts that are turned by the ball. There are two, one for left-right, one for up-down, and there is a spring loaded roller. There is a gummy buildup on these that prevents smooth operation. I use a sharp knife to gently scrape it off. If the shafts are still sticky you may have to dissassemble the entire mouse. Hardly worth the effort unless you have some kind of high powered mouse with special features. BUT, this is not a symptom of a new mouse.
If it is new and does not work, you should consider returning it.
Also, consider an optical mouse. They do not have this problem.
Flip the small rat upside down!
Remove the ball by turning the round plastic ball retainer counter clockwise. Clean the ball with soapy water, rinse it and dry it, and set it aside.
Look inside the mouse, you should see three white nylon or black plastic rollers, scrape any dirt that might be caked on to them, and clean them throughly with some alchool or acetone.
If you have a can of compressed air, point the the nozzle inside the mouse to expell all the dust out, if you have no air, use your mouth, blow hard!
Put the ball back on the mouse, the plastic retainer (turn clockwise to lock in place). and you're all set to go!
are you using the mouse on a mouse mat because you get this prob if the place you are using the mouse is greasy or dust are you using an infra red mouse or does it have a ball in the bottom if it has a ball in the bottom a rubber one undo the clip holding the ball in tip it up so the ball comes out you should now see three rollers the one at top is up n down and one at side is left and right the third is just to hold the ball against the other two all these rollers should be smooth usually they get a build up of dirt in the middle of each roler scratch this of with your finger do this with comp on and try rubbing the rollers up and down and see if the mouse is moving on the scrren how it should clean all three of these rollers check theball is clean and not greasy if you can move the pointer using you fingers on the rollers then you know the problem is not your mouse so put back together then the only other thing could be wrong is the mouse mat you will need to replace this or clean it properly try using the mouse on a book and see if this is any better if you have infra red mouse you dont need mouse mat and should have no problem if you still have problems post back and i will try again hope this is some help to you ............................................
