I think my mouse is dying

Hi all,

I think I know the answer to my question, but I'll post it to you guys anyway, in case I've missed something obvious.

My mouse has started to become jerky (no wisecracks). If I move the pointer slowly across, left to right and up and down the screen, it will stop very briefly and then continue. It seems to happen at regular points across the screen.

I've checked the settings in Control Panel
and all seems OK.

Any thoughts appreciated

have you cleaned it? if it is a ball type take the ball out rub it on some blue tack then clean all the little rollers inside.

If its not optical, then clean the ball and rollers.

By the way, i've tried cleaning the lens with a cotton bud.

Cheers

You haven't said which religion it is, then we can point you in the direction of a priest, vicar, rabbi etc: ;-)
