The ball seams to get stuck. It esp.doesn't move to the left.


Normally, you can remove the ball. Turn the mouse upside-down, you'll notice two rollers, in a straight angle. One is for upward/downward motion, the other one for left-right. These may need cleaning. I used a small knife to remove all accumalet dirt, but you'll need to be careful.

On the other hand: modern mice don't use a tracking ball and are cheap enough to replace your older one.

Buttons work intermittently, pointer either wont move or jumps. Put in fresh batts - didn't help


If the mouse uses a laser to detect motion over a surface, make sure that the surface is clean and uniform in colour.

If the mouse has a spinning ball, then remove the cover that holds the ball in place, and remove the ball. You'll see two "rollers" -- gently scrape all "gunk" off each roller. Reassemble.

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.

Re toshiba techra 8000


Some laptops have a touch pad between the keyboard and the edge of the laptop. This works like a mouse except you slide your finger around the pad to move the mouse pointer and the buttons next to the touch pad are the left and right buttons.
Other laptops have a small round button in the middle of the keyboard which is a mini joystick and it is used to move the mouse pointer around, it will have a couple of mouse buttons at the botom edge of the keyboard.
You can connect a normal mouse to your laptop, it is mush easier than using the laptop's touch pad or mini joystick.

Mouse will only move left and right not up and down


Your mouse is not detected when boot occur.
It could be that your mouse wire lacks of continuity.
It also could be that the driver is corrupted.

Things to do:

Do continuity testing for your mouse wire.
Reinstall driver of your mouse.
Restart the Computer

I had the same problem and checked at the Apple store and was told to rub the scrolling ball with a alcohol prep pad. works wonderful. May have to repeat as needed.

Did you take the ball out and clean it and everything it touchs internally?? Dust tends to build up in it and makes it go where you dont want.

Mighty Mouse won't scroll down


I have had the same problem on occasion.  I found that if I turn the mouse over and tickle it...  It works!  Only kidding...
Turn the mouse over, push down hard so the ball is depressed, and move it vigorously in all directions.  That usually dislodges whatever is trapped inside.

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 ............................................
