    if your us9ing windows go into the control panel and check your mouse sensitivity. If your mouse ball and/or its tracking wheels are dirty. Try cleaning the lint out of it if you have a mouse with a ball, or you can get a mouse without a ball and feel like a thug.

    paint thinner and electronics are not good friends...everytime I had to clean a mouse ball and its tracking things I would use a q-tip and a tooth pick to pick off all the lint. But I still highly recommend one of the mouses/mice that does not has a tracking ball but instead a small light in the bottom.

    what is the past tense of computer mouse?

    this took way too long to look for...

    Abstract: Mouse Balls Available as FRU (Field Replacement Unit)

    Mouse Balls are now available as FRU. Therefore, if a mouse fails to operate
    or should it perform erratically, it may need a ball replacement. Because of
    the delicate nature of this procedure, replacement of mouse balls should only be
    attempted by properly trained personnel.

    Before proceeding, determine the type of mouse balls by examining the
    underside of the mouse. Domestic balls will be harder and larger than foreign
    balls. Ball removal procedures differ depending on the manufacturer of the
    mouse. Foreign balls can be replaced using the pop-off method. Domestic balls
    are replaced using the twist off method. Mouse Balls are usually not static
    sensitive. However, excessive handling can result in sudden discharge. Upon
    completion of ball replacement, the mouse may be used immediately.

    It is recommended that each replacer have a pair of spare balls for
    maintaining optimum customer satisfaction, and that any customer missing his
    balls should suspect local personnel of removing these necessary items.
