left click and right click buttons

Q: left click and right click buttons

On this new laptop the left and right click buttons are in the corners of the trackpad, unlike my old aspire where they were on a seperate pad just below. The problem with the new one is, the cursor moves when you press for left click, making it annoyingly hard to scroll down, stop, then scroll down again. Is there a fault on it, or can this over-sensitivity be adjusted?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

So I have had this problem for a while now but never really did anything about it. When I left click and hold buttons like 'shift' or 'w' simultaneously, the game I'm playing will crash and just completely exit the game. This happens usually when I spam click but will eventually crash even if I click slowly. It has only happened on two games: Minecraft and Starbound. On Minecraft, the center of the screen will show the flickering blue loading symbol and then crash. I've noticed that when I go in windowed mode, the problem does not occur; however, the screen is buggy and it will show my desktop flickering. It is really frustrating having to restart the game, so please help. Thanks!

Hey everyone. I received my sony vaio 15.5 eb series i3-370m laptop today. However, the left click on touchpad right clicks. Support told me its a hardware issue that cannot be fixed and that they can send someone over. Also, if i want to close the firefox window... pressing the left or right click works which is a problem with this touchpad. The scrolling of the touchpad however has no problem though. Would you guys suggest i sent this laptop back instead? If they send someone to come and repair it, they would have to open the laptop and i don't think that is good for the long run of Should i just request a new one instead?

I would assume i don't have to pay the extra $50 now correct? The battery life i notice is around 2 hours just web browsing. I am thinking if i should just return it and get a sager 5135 because i heard battery life is 3 hours and it offers 1080P. But i know that laptop does not look as good as a sony one. I will mainly play online poker with applications on it and browse and listen to music.

I just talked to support and did trouble shooting and installed a driver. What is funny now is that the left and right click buttons don't even work anymore. However, the left click and button button works if i click on those items on my taskbar such as internet explorer and windows explorer. But if i click it a 2nd time, a new explorer will show up. I cannot click on anything besides those 3 items on my taskbar with the left/right click now. ... Read more

Hello,

My wallpaper has been changed to some eerie yellow color, and it takes multiple left clicks to click on anything. Right click does not work at all. Also, there were no start menu icons or quick launch icons, until I ran unhide... I'm not sure if I was supposed to do that yet though, since from the looks of the forums we're supposed to do that after removal of the virus. I ran Malwarebytes and it removed 2 things after a full scan, but nothing has changed. Help would be greatly appreciated... thanks!

Not sure how else I can title this post!

I have a new Dell Inspiron 15r as of this Christmas, running Windows 8. I ran the upgrade to 8.1 but I still have a problem with my cursor wanting to "hover click" on links or browser tabs, as well as being stuck in the down position, when I'm not even pressing on the touchpad left button. I end up selecting an entire region of stuff while moving the cursor across the screen.

I can't figure out what to change or configure in Control Panel, or is it in the Dell Touchpad configuration utility?

In Control Panel/Ease of Access Center/Make Your Mouse Easier To Use I have unchecked "Activate a Window by hovering over it with a mouse." Still happens.

It's driving me mad - never had this problem with Win 7 or any desktop machine.

Anyone? Thank you.

A:Dell Inspriron Hover-Click and Left-Click Gets Stuck

If you go into Mouse in Control Panel, then click Device Settings Tab.. on the right there's a Settings Button. I turned off the ones that say swipe. I also disabled rapid app switching. To do that press Winkey-q click Settings on the top right. Type "swipe" in the box. You should see a box on the left about rapid app switching. Click it and you can then disable it.

This is my first laptop also. The mouse gestures drove me crazy. About all I kept was tap click. Also I bought a $5 optical USB mouse and a $.97 mouse pad. I keep these in my Laptop case. When I have time and room to set up the mouse pad I feel much better about using the machine.

Dell Latitude - XPsp3

This is a problem with the built in mouse pad. I left click something like the desktop and the options menu comes up as though it was a right click. It's not a software setting, as I've checked them all, and I've reinstalled XP.

The only (temporary) fix I can apply is to plug in a usb mouse. Then the touchpad mouse will act appropriately. But it reverts back to this issue upon reboot.

Should I update the BIOS?

I've downloaded the most recent driver & searched for a solution online but haven't found anyone who has fixed this issue. Did everyone just give up or am I not patient enough & haven't dug deep enough. If I use a USB mouse there are no problems it just seems to be with the built-in after I've used the USB mouse.

Hello all, from a few days until now I have started experiencing what seems to be a recurrent problem in the P50 laptop touchpad drivers. When using the driver 19.3.4.16 for synaptics pointing device, the left button of the touchpad double clicks most of the times (about 70-80% of the time). If I decide to update my drivers to the latest version, 19.3.4.202, then something even worse happens: the left and right buttons are inverted (and I have checked that the box of inverting the buttons in control panel is unclicked). From what I have been reading this has been an issue that has happened before already, but I don't know if Lenovo fixed it, or it has just been unsolved until now. Maybe someone around here can help me with this?

Hi, after visiting some somewhat dubious sites today my right click has completely ceased to function and my left click behaves as a right click. Changing the windows mouse settings have not resolved the issue, scanning with AVG and AVAST did not find anything and Spybot did not resolve the issue. The issue remains in safemode, however the mouse works normally in games (tested in half-life 2). Opera is my normal web browser, however I was also using Firefox3 when the issue first started.

A friend came by about 3 weeks ago and attempted to show me the proper way to use tabbing in IE8. After he left, I noticed a difference in the process to connect to links within web pages that I'd never experienced before. He lives overseas and is hard to contact.

When in my browser, I have always left-clicked to go to a linked site. That works just fine; however, when I am in a webpage with embedded links, I can sometimes left click to go to the site of some of those links, but find that for other embedded links, I must rigt click and choose "open link" or "open link in new tab" or "open link in new page".

I've never had to right click to go to a link within any web page.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

I've been having this trouble for a couple of months and i just can't figure out what has caused it.
On regular intervals usually happens within every half an hour the buttons on my mouse stop responding and I have to press ctrl+alt+del to get a response out of them and when I do the left click becomes the right click (right click always remains as right click)
To fix it I left click to bring the right click menu bar up choose properties then while the properties window is up right click and choose properties again and that always resets it back to normal.
Also what happens every hour or so the right click menu bar opens up on screen without touching the mouse,
and the page every now and again goes back to a previous web page (like pressing "back" on the right click drop down menu) without me touching the mouse aswell.
I use google chrome and due to the left and right click problem chrome's drop down menu does not respond when clicked,
if I just press on the favourites tab it opens every single page I have set as a favourite and also when I click on a web page tab it shuts it down,
I found out through google that this happens when you middle click on the cross icon on the web page tab area and then you have to middle click it again to reset it back to normal so it seems my middle click button seems troublesome too

Hey guys,

This issue is for my desktop using Window 7 Ultimate 64-bit and it's been bugging me for awhile and I can't seem to find a solution online for it. The issue is when I have something minimized on the taskbar whether it's pinned on the taskbar or not, a single window minimized or stacked, and I go and left click to bring the window back up I get a right click instead. If anyone has ever right clicked on a program on the taskbar (pinned or active for the time being) you get this menu of recently opened files that are related to the program, that's what I'm getting for a left click on several instances. It's an intermittent problem but one that really annoys. This also started to happen on my laptop which is using Window 7 Premium 32-bit. First I thought it was my mouse screwing up but now that my laptop is doing it I'm second guessing the mouse's fault. Any possible theories? Thanks in advance!

if you are running win9x its under the windows folder if you are running win2k and up its uder C:\Documents and Settings\NAMEofUSER\Local Settings\...
flush your DNS from a command window START-->RUN-->CMD type the following:
ipconfig /flushdns or if you have win2k xp on the network properties. there is a repair button that will do that for you too it clears all cache.. but not the ones in the folder jsut the one on the TCP/IP stack
also try a ping on the page. get the IP address of it and see if it can load that way or if you ahve the same issue

Cant click the buttons to close an open window.
Yet I can click on desktop icons.

Only way to get it to let me click again is hit CTRL + Alt + Del When the window pops up with the options I can hit cancel and I can click on these things again. It's getting more frequent and annoying!

I have run disk check repair and that didn't help.

Any advice would be great!

Hi phrostbyte,

Have you tried doing a System Restore?

Cheers,

All of a sudden tonight, my computer won't close programs by clicking on the X. The _ line won't minimize, and the box won't expand.

Also, for some reason, *some* pop-up boxes have blank buttons. i.e. The OK/cancel buttons aren't labled.

I have restarted many times. Run virus software.
*For some reason, I can't get the scan disk to schedule a scan.*
I've searched the internet for someone else that is having the same problem, but apparently it's just me.

The only way to close programs is through task manager, or to use File - close when available, etc.

My mouse is working fine for all other functions.

Anybody got a solution?

A:Click X's, But Won't Close. Also Blank Buttons

First time I've heard of this. I have gotten error like this when installing a software. Maybe you installed something that gave you this. Check out any software or update that has recently been installed, or try a system restore to a previous date of this occurring, maybe that will fix this.

I once got no properties of my sceeen after installing Nvidia driver (I have XP) but this may be the thing...
Good luck, and keep us posted...

I doubt I'm asking this question in the right category, but I figured it could be a result of me disabling some services to stop cpu spikes every hour.

The problem started a few days ago. It only applies to buttons that depend on other fields being filled before one can click on them. Using the link below as an example, I could not proceed despite filling in my birthday. The "go" or "next" button will not become solid. I thought it was an issue with the website, but my friend didn't have a problem when he tried it. I experienced something similar on amazon, where clicking on a button to get a seller account wouldn't do anything (it's supposed to show a box where I can type in a verification code and connect me with someone from amazon). It's a problem on any browser. I can download programs just fine, so it's only an issue on the internet.

Currently working on a Dell Latitude E6500 laptop with a fresh install of Windows 7 Pro 64 and both the left and right trackpad buttons right-click.

I've checked the mouse settings in device manager as well as uninstalled and re-installed the driver.

I tried a second fresh installation of Win7 on a different HDD, same result.

The driver that Windows installed automatically wasn't the Dell trackpad driver, so I tried uninstalling the stock driver and installing the Dell trackpad driver. When I do this neither trackpad button works at all regardless of the settings.

Was hoping someone might have an idea or suggestion as to what I should try next? Thanks in advance, I appreciate your time.

Edit:

I had it taken apart a couple days ago and didn't notice anything odd or remarkable with the connections or cable.

The trackstick buttons (three above the touchpad) seem to function correctly regardless of which driver is installed.

Changing the settings to reverse right and left button function does change the behaviour of the right button to act as a left click.

A:Fresh Win7 install both buttons right click

If you hook up an external mouse, does it show the same behavior? This will let you know if it is software or hardware related.

Hi, I?m not using trackpoint but I just noticed that both physical trackpoint buttons (those above the trackpad) act as ?right-click?. The trackpad works fine (I mean both left and right are ok on the trackpad). I tried to set up fresh Windows 10 and uninstall mouse drivers, after that install UltraNav from Lenovo page, but it is still like that, both are ?right-click?. Thanks in advance for any suggestions. Regards

I have read the sticky but i am having a problem beyond that scope i believe. I cannot click on any button that says download or install, install exe files have icons that have changed and the worst part is i have a text file in "my documents" that is titled "AVSDK5_UNINST". If you read it, it seems to be a log file of commands that appears to have disabled my anti virus software. I have system mechanic and AVG Internet security.
The AVG side bar tool says "cannot find AVG services". I have windows 7 ultimate BTW.
should I copy and paste the log here and see what everyone thinks by looking at the command lines?
any help would be great.

i should mention that I just did a clean install due to other viruses that my wife downloaded off of supposed coupon sites. about 20 or 30 trojans and a back door. I am using my laptop with an air card. I have yanked the ethernet cable from the PC and i refuse to even use my wifi for fear of someone attacking my network

A:[SOLVED] cannot click download or install buttons

i know i'm double posting, but the edit button is gone.
In the "log" that I mentioned, one of the lines says "hello, I'm your 32bit impersonated custom action server"
thought that might be important

Hi,
I have an asp.net website with web forms with master pages and the buttons I have on them only fire onclick events every other click. I have already searched the web and everything I try does not work. Does anyone know why they are not firing events every
time the button is clicked? I am running Visual Studio 2013 express for the web.
Thanks,
Lori
