Question about Computers & Internet
My microsoft trackball optical mose jumps all over the screen
This is a TRACKBALL, and does not rely on any surface underneath it. It is WIRED, and has no batteries to replace. Clean the bearings, yes, and the ball. A few Q-Tips, some rubbing alcohol, a couple paper towels aer all you need. After a tint bit, only a drop or two of pretty much any oil will also help everything run smoothly. But if it has not just an unsmooth feeling, but the cursor is actually jumping around on the screen, the most likely culprit is hair/lint/fibers/etc. inside the little oval opening behind the ball, which is being sensed by the optics and causes the jumpiness. Q-tip, toothpick, or such may help, or some compressed air, or a quick "poof" by mouth usually does the trick.
