Most mice are connected via a generic driver, unless you have specific software for it. So the HP mouse should be fine.

Optical track ball is sticking. How clean it and what to avoid?


An "optical" mouse has *NO* track-ball.

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.

Mouse will not mover cursor but will right and


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.

Ball still not working


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.

Thanks

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.

Hp rollerball mouse model M8590PLJ


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!
