Mouse with its own mind


If the mouse has a ball, it probably needs cleaned along with the wheels inside behind the ball. Always do all maintanance with the mouse unplugged from the computer. You can see them when you take the ball out. Typicaly, you twist the cap holding the ball in and it just falls out. At this point, you can clean the ball with a mild cleaner and the wheels inside the mouse with a pencil eraser, pocket knife or a Q-tip with rubbing alcohol.

If it's an optical mouse (red or blue laser under the mouse) simply clean where the laser light is. If this does not work, then plug the mouse into another USB port. If that does not work, then restart the computer properly (not hard or soft reset). That should fix it. If not then the mouse probably is bad.
Good luck!

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.

My mouse pad will not move my cursor on my computer


If your mouse is the older ball type hold the mouse level about 12 inches off the pad and move the ball on the underside of the mouse with your finger. If the cursor moves you may need to simply clean any dust from inside the device and clean the ball. Open the open to release the ball. Theres a round plate on the underside around the ball. Turn it to the open position a remove the ball. Clean any dust from inside with canned air or a soft brush. Clean the ball with a small amount of alcohol and let dry completely. Replace ball and plate and you should be ready to go.
If you have an infrared mouse, your mousepad may be too glossy. Dry a pad with a dull finish.

Pointer jumps


That's not a lot of information there...

How far does it jump? How often? Since when? Is this a new mouse, an old one, an optical or a ball mouse? Do you use a mouse pad? Have you installed any of that cursor mania stuff? Is it a USB mouse?

I'd recommend (If you have a ball mouse) to take out the ball by turning the circular plate under the mouse then blowing the dust out and wiping the ball clean. If it's an optical mouse i'd suggest a new mouse-pad designed especially for this optical mice. Also you might wanna try re-installing it. Or if it's a USB mouse trying it in a different slot and cleaning out that connection too.

I have model pc7530


Are you using an Optical mouse, Wireless Mouse or a Roller Ball mouse? If its a roller ball, turn it over, twist the cover as the arrows show, remove the ball and you will see some rollers around the edges that read the balls movement. Clean the gunk off of them with your fingernail or cotton swab. (NO WATER)
If you are using a wireless mouse, change the batteries and make sure you have a good line of site to the wireless adapter, and RESET the mouse by pushing the button on the wireless adapter. If it is an optical USB mouse please let me know, if any of the above worked. Thanks //D
