I found wonder that up to Ubuntu 11.10, my Microsoft USB mouse scroll function worked properly, but after updating to 12.04 LTS, it just jumping like unevenly and jumpy.

I replaced the Microsoft USB mouse with ball it works okay. Please help to rectify.

It's a know bug which happen with a lot of Microsoft mice, the only solution I've found is to unplug it and plug it back. Then it's working properly until the next reboot.
