Curse of the drifting cursor...!!

I'm using an old "big red ball" Logitech Marble Mouse USB with a Dell Latitude laptop. Lately the cursor consistently drifts diagonally to the lower left. If I hold the ball still, it keeps drifting!! This is a true pain!! If Anyone knows how to fix this, please shared your wisdom! thanks.

  1. Try cleaning the thing. Pull the ball out and pay attention to the lens that "reads" the movement of the ball.
  2. This is normally caused by a dirty optical sensor under the ball, you need to remove the ball and clear out any dust or hair particles that might be interfering with its operation, I had the same situation on a laser mouse where i had drifting, and even with blowing onto the lens it didn't help until i noticed that there was a stubborn hair in front of it, got that out of the way and everything worked great

    Hope this helps
