If the motion is completely inverted, look around for some unknown utility (e.g. using AnVir Task Manager Free ) that's doing this unliked job for you.  If it's just kind of not moving right, take out the ball and clean the -rollers- the ball goes up against which are exposed by removing the ball...use a fingernail or nail file or something to get it back to being a smooth rod, or buy an optical mouse already!  Mice can eventually go bad because the IR emitters and receivers inside get jammed with dust; so if it's moving only 1 pixel at a time if at all, you can carefully clean it out with compressed air.  The electronics can go bad, too, oddly enough.  So it's possible you need a new one.

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!

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.

Rollerball on Wireless mouse keeps getting gummed up. Cleaning done frequently but need to open mouse to get inside cleaned ?


The Apple wireless mice aren't made to be disassembled, not even by techs. If you disassemble it to clean it, you must glue it back together.
The best way to clean the rollerball is to remove the batteries and roll the ball upside down on a cloth soaked in alcohol. Be sure to roll the ball alternately depressed and not depressed for the best cleaning, and roll it in all directions.
When this no longer works, you can either attempt to clean the ball yourself at your own risk, or purchase a new mouse.

Poor mouse movement


If you remove the ball, look inside there are 2 white rollers(they may ba a different color) that touch the ball as it moves, there will be build up of gunk on them from the ball, use an exacto knife or something small to scrape the stuff off of them.

Mouse only moves up and down not side to side


If it is a PS/2 mouse with roller ball, the horizontal wheel sensors are gone. No sense in trying to fix this roller ball PS/2 mice are really cheap. As far as the USB mouse you may have to install a driver. Depends on the operating system.
