What is the ball inside a computer mouse called?
A trackball, I believe.
If it is a ball mouse, you would need to remove the ball from time to time, especially if the mouse movement feels rough. You can wash the ball with soap and water if you desire, and you should make sure it is completely dry before assembly. However, what really needs to be done is to remove any debris from the rollers inside. One way to do this is to take your fingernail and scrape… Read More
Well the mouse sends the movements of it to the computer. A mouse with a mouse-ball has rollers inside of it that move with the ball and from there can operate similar to a keyboard. An optical or 'laser' mouse is much more advanced.
an optical mouse is used for you computer but is not like a normal mouse is got an led inside of it and doesn't have a ball in side of it other word is ball less
A ball mouse
The ball inside older mice - was made of a solid steel ball coated in a thick layer of rubber.
The ball inside older mice - was either solid rubber - or a steel ball with a rubber coating.
That's called a trackball. The device stays in place and you move the ball (usually) with your thumb, rather than moving a mouse which in turn moves the ball inside (or with the newer optical mouse, electronically senses the mouse motion).
if it is a ball mouse (rolling ball on the bottom of the mouse) then you can turn the wheel around the ball and clean the ball and the rollers inside if it is a laser mouse and its just regular nothing specail your probably better off just buying a new one because they are no more than 10 or 15 dollars
They both do the same job. And on an older mouse it's easy to see the similarities. An older computer mouse would have a ball underneath. Then as you moved the mouse around the ball would roll and the computer would count the rotations. A track ball was basically a mouse turned upside down. Instead of moving the mouse to rotate the ball, you'd move the ball directly with your fingers instead.
ones called a mouse the others called a tracker ball.
A "ball mouse" or mechanical mouse is a computer mouse which detects user inputs using a system of servos detecting the movements of a ball (inside the mouse) which rolls on the desk surface. The most common alternative, the "optical mouse" uses optical sensors to detect user inputs. The optical mouse is widely considered to be superior in all important respects, and is therefore becoming much more common then their mechanical cousins.
The laser or ball on the bottom.
if the mouse has a tracking ball under it, flip it over and turn the plate that holds the ball to the right(clockwise), remove the ball and using a pencil eraser or a toothpick remove the gunk on the tracking wheels inside of the mouse, make sure to shake or blow out all of the debris and put together. if that doesn't work buy a new mouse
No. There is no ball. Just a camera that looks at the surface of the table you are moving on.
A Ball Bearing
This is called a trackball.
track ball is like an mouse
it is a ball or sometime a laser thingy
Either the settings have been changed in the Control Panel in your computer, or - more likely - there is dust and dirt accumulated in the mouse. Disconnect it, turn it over and turn the ring securing the ball anti-clockwise. Take out the ball. There will be three axles with wheels on them (or maybe just axles) inside it. Check these for a build-up of dirt - and if there is any remove it gently… Read More
The exact method to fixing a computer mouse will vary depending on the root cause of the issue. A mouse could simply need a battery replacement. You can also take apart the mouse and clean the roller ball with alcohol.
A mouse that uses a rubber ball that makes contact with wheels inside the unit when it is rolled on a pad or desktop.
Ink ball is a strategy style computer game. The idea is to use a stylus, or mouse, to draw a line to direct a ball into a corresponding colored hole.
The basic features (considered to be parts) of a mouse are a casing with a flat bottom; one or more buttons on the top; a multidirectional detection device (usually a ball) on the bottom; and a cable connecting the mouse to the computer.
In a ball mouse, the ball, which is moved by contact on a surface, has three directional roll sensors which transfer electrical signals to the computer which then moves the mouse pointer on the screen. In laser and optical mice, the roll sensors are replaced by lasers or infrared sensors, which detect which direction the mouse is moving. This is sent to the computer which moves the mouse pointer. Laser and optical mice are more… Read More
"Better" is subjective. The major advantage an optical mouse, though, is that it is not mechanical-ball-based, so it will not clog up and not work. With a regular mouse, the little ball inside it accumulates dust and dirt, making the mouse not function unless cleaned.
Normally the roller pins behind the ball wears out.
There is a computer game called Ball Line
FALSE An Optical Mouse replaces the ball in a standard mouse with a microchip, miniature red light or laser light, and camera. Guide to Hardware Chapter 8 Page 316 You're welcome :)
Most modern computer mice do not have a ball, instead they use optical sensors.
A ball mouse
A tracker ball is both a the ball on top of a stationary mouse and a type of a mouse that has a ball on top. A typical mouse is moved over a pad and has the ball directing the cursor on the bottom, but a tracker ball type mouse has the ball on top of a stationary mouse where you direct the cursor by moving the ball with your thumb, FOREFINGER AND MAINLY WITH… Read More
An optical mouse is a computer input device that uses a laser to sense the movement of your hand. The old style mouse used a ball with wheel sensors attached to it.
It's an input like we use mouse and keyboard in computer.
what is roller ball mouse
Remove the cap with the hole below the mouse, remove the ball and clean it, and clean the rolling cylinders that you will find inside the hole were the ball came from.
If a ball mouse: Take out the ball every so often and clean in the hole as dust usually collects in that area. If a Lazer or optical Mouse: you do not really need to carry out maintanance but try to keep the mouse clean and make sure parts are clean.
There are many things. Here are some things that can cause the problem: mouse ball is dirty, computer is busy, mouse on a bad surface.
Can a medical expert answer why a person can control a computer mouse any computer mouse only if they operate it upside down?
This won't answer your question, it is a suggestion. Have you considered using a track ball? Have you considered shutting the hell up!
the difference is that an optical mouse hasn`t got a ball to use the mouse with but an roller ball mouse has got a ball to use.smelly nob
if your mouse have a litlle ball in it you have to take the ball andd clean the mouse but if the mouse have a lassser i dont know
Inside the ball is a ride called Spaceship Earth.
Technically, yes. I doesn't matter whether it's a ball or an infrared mouse, I'm pretty sure they hook up to the computer the same way, and they both work rather similarly, but I really like infrared mouses better.
Track ball Track pad Integrated Pointing Device
The first marketed integrated mouse - shipped as a part of a computer and intended for personal computer navigation - came with the Xerox 8010 Star Information System in 1981. The ball mouse was invented as part of that project in 1972 by Bill English. However, the mouse remained relatively obscure until the appearance of the Apple Macintosh; in 1984 PC columnist John C. Dvorak ironically commented on the release of this new computer with… Read More
Usually the ball is dirty or the wheel inside that rides on the ball has become caked with junk. Turn over the mouse and remove the ball, you'll probably need to turn the retaining plate, but some are a little different. Figure that part out by looking at the bottom of the mouse. Once the ball is out, clean and dry it. Then look at the three wheels inside, where the ball just came out… Read More
When a player serves the ball inside the court and it hits the floor without anyone touching the ball this is called?
It is called an Ace.
A track ball mouse is a mouse that uses an internal ball to track movement, instead of a laser. These have been outdated by optical mice.
The various kinds of computer mice are: Mechanical - These mice have a ball under them which sense movements, and it turns wheels inside which operate switches. These have been obsolete for some time. Optomechanical - These mice use a ball to turn slotted wheels inside which pass through photocells. They require a mouse pad to be able to move, and are more reliable than the purely mechanical mice. Optical - These mice use a… Read More
I hate when a dust and debris gathers inside the mouse. Perhaps that is because I use the lint trap from my dryer as a mouse pad. :)
