Hi,
I have a USB mouse with a roller ball. Recently when I move it over its mouse pad it makes a creaking sound which is very disconcerting.

I cleaned its roller and wheels with a dry cloth but it didn't make any difference.

Anyone have any tips for me?

Thanks.

A new mouse. Preferably an optical one.

Its probably something jammed in the sensor wheels, that are driven off the wheels that run on the ball. Or the bearings for those axles are stuffed.

I'm using one now that does the same thing. I suspect it's a "feature".
