    Do you mean that your trackball is not moving? If so, try to clean it with a can of air.

    trust me and try this. lick the track ball and roll it around with ur finger. should fix it

    if that doesnt fix it, remove the assembly, drop it in a soap solution, wash it thoroughly, put it back.

    He's actually right. It does work, if you don't want to take it apart. Eventually it will stop working with those solutions, but it's a good temp fix.
