fluffy mouse

Hi all, bit of a daft one this, suns shining so here goes, for the last couple of days my mouse was playing up, refusing to move the pointer until i gave it a few rolls along the the mousemat, then i remembered something in pca awhile back, so i turned my mouse over unscrewed the back and found that little bits of fluff had attached to the ball, i cleaned it and now my mouse is working perfectly once more.joel

Did you clean the rollers that the ball touches, cos you might get fluffed again ;-))

good MS brand optical mouse only cost £8, you can get cheaper one

once you use an optical one, you will never think of using ball mouse

my typist saw your post and thought you had a fluffy covered mouse .. she wants a pink one to match her gel mouse pad! She seems to be into pink at the moment, all her desk fittings are pink, she has even painted the telephone pink.

Don't think you are completely out of the fluff problem with an optical mouse!!

Maybe less fluff but you'll still find detritus gets in through the wheel - or the ball, which is worst. Especially if you eat and use the mouse at the same time!!
