i have just purchased a new system from dell and find that the mouse makes a scratching noise when moving it on the mousemat.can anyone advise how to stop this annoying sound.

have you have taken the transit packing out from behind the wheel guard?

Mouses are SO cheap, bin it and buy another optical one.

Seriously: When you turn it over - what do you see?

In answer to the replies -yes i have taken out the transit packing.When i turn it over its as any other mouse with a ball showing through the guard.

It should be held in by a removable plate.

sounds like evrythings in place, if your not happy and its a new pc i would contact dell for a replacement

If there is nothing visibly wrong within the casing, I should follow "adman2's" advice and get the Mouse replaced.
