    on your mighty mouse? I've had mine since november and it's worked perfect since then but lately it hasn't been scrolling down all the time. I tried spraying canned air in it already and that didn't work... I remember I saw a thread on using a piece of scotch tape a while back here to clean it without taking it apart? I'm not mechanically inclined enough nor do I want to manually take the whole thing apart and have to glue it back together and ghetto rig my 70$ purchase.

    Thanks. :hsd:

    i use a damp cloth and roll it on the trackball while it's upside down. it does the trick

    So on that note, how do you get the keys on your keyboard white again?? I'm a mechanic, so I always have some greasy residue on my hands, and after almost 2 years now, that gleaming white keyboard is now kinda, well, almost black.
