Question about Computers & Internet
It's not the ball that's dirty...
Take the ball out and look in the hole. You will see two rollers that control the cursor movement. The ball spins the rollers. These rollers probably have a bunch of gunk/**** on them. Remove the gunk buildup from the rollers and the mouse will work fine (fingernail is a good tool for this). Turn the rollers with your finger to make sure all the gunk is gone. If not, replace it with an optical mouse (no ball).
Hope this helps!
