The mouse on my computer has decided that its got a mind of its own and to hell with what I want its going to do zig zags all over the screen rather than go where I point the thing!! :mad:

Anyone have a clue why the damned things gone demented on me all of a sudden?? :confused:

You need to clean his balls:eek: :D

Well "the ball" , tip it over there should be a little hatch that opens , the ball will fall out , clean it with rubbing alcohol and the little roller guides up inside where the ball fits also , clue tip and more rubbing alcohol. Re -insert ball and it should track fine.

Boy is this post rip for off colour comments eh:D

eeeeerrrrrrrrr ummmm this poor wee mousey is a gelding ol son... no balls!!! its one of them ones with the light under its bum damned if I know what theyre called... but no balls whatever... it does have 4 wee pad things which I guess could be mistaken by a blonde or a blind fella as balls... hang on a tick and I'll check that... nope just the blonde! :D

Ive cleaned the 4 pads but shes still demented!! :mad:

It could be the pad that you are using. If I pass mine over a book or printed page it gets squirrely, or over the rubberized carbon mat on the dest......when I use it off to the side on the wood top it works fine.

Don't clean the mouse ball, get an optical mouse, no cleaning involved.

Optical thats the buggar!! its still connected by the line but its got the red light thing under its bum...

And I have taken the sodding thing off the mat cause its TOTALLY and UTTERLY uncontrollable on that thing... on the desk its mmmm kinda a little bit controllable as long as you dont mind spending more time chasing the flamin mongrel around the screen trying to get it to go where you want it to that is :rolleyes:

oh and it gets the sudden jerks too... you can be typing away and watching it out of the corner of your eye and suddenly it will tear of across the screen... or slowly sidle its way up the screen toward the top... then zzzzzzzzap its down the bottom... and heven help you if youve got your finger on it!! blam suddenly youve opened up the file menu or the start menu and youve not touched the thing!!...damned demented I tell yer...

its either that or

its... possessed!! :eek:

Sounds like that's what Dingo has , so I guess a good ball cleaning is not going to work , but yanno a guy does always feel better if his balls are clean:D Mice's mileage may vary :D

I got nuttin for ya on optical mice:o New glass's maybe :D

What Nanoose said, except #1 shoud read, "find sledge hammer".

Then again, it could simply be the kind of mouse you've got, i.e. the "flamin mongrel" type. :eek: :D :D

Just put up with it Dingo, hell there's only a few days left before you quit the computer entirely anyway.:p

10-21-2007, 06:40 PM
I've got it now!! :D

It's the fact that it's 'flamin'!! Just douse it with some water to put the fire out, Dingo, and it should recover just fine.

hehehehehehehe :D :D :D

Forget the mouse....get one of "Man's Best Friends"....

Paris Hilt.... I mean, a trackball.

Flamin' BEAUTIES they are... easy to clean, no stupid pad to worry about, easy on the hand and very accurate.
