I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

First off, I'm not a computer savy guy. Here's my issue. As an example of my problem, when my son plays minecraft (Chrome browser), he tells me that when he is holding down a key on the keyboard to move his guy, the left-click on the touchpad won't respond. Only when he lets go of the key, the left-click then responds, which ruins his gaming experience since he can't "move and attack" at the same time. Btw, this also happens when he plugs in any external mouse too. This also happense whenever I try it on any website, etc, but is has never really been an issue for me, a non-gamer. I have tried this on other computers, and the left click on the mouse will respond when holding down a key.
Is There a simple fix for this in settings or something? I can't seem to find anything that will correct the problem, and have no idea why it's happening on this computer.
Using a Lenovo Y560 ideapad. Thanks in advance for the help!!
 

A:Please help! left-click won't work when pressing any key on keyboard.

1. get a new keyboard
2. download minecraft onto your computer (www.minecraft.net)

Model: Dell XPS 15 9530.After a recent motherboard replacement my touchpad doesnt click (as in you cant physically press the buttons) and doesnt register that im pressing the touchpad down. I was wondering whether this is an easy fix or a common issue. Posting from New Zealand but the support over here is pretty attrocious and havent received an email reply for a few days so thought id see if anyone else had similar issues. Was done by a professional so I am wondering why it doesnt work and maybe if he just didnt screw some stuff back up right.

Hi,
Thank you for writing to us!
We would suggest you to first uninstall the touch pad driver and then restart the system install the latest drivers from the Dell site .

Once the drivers are update check if works fine.

Hello, Recently bought a Lenovo Yoga 330 laptop. Have noticed that the spacebar has some issues with responsiveness, specifically isolated to the left hand side. If I press the key on the right-hand side, it doesn't have any issues registering a key press. However, at the extremities of the left hand side of the space bar, a press on the space bar doesn't register a press. This affects approximately 1/5 (one-fifth) or 20% of the left hand side of the keyboard. I thought I'd post here to see if other Yoga 330's are having the same issue or if this issue is isolated to my own laptop. Has anyone managed to fix this issue themselves? To me it seems like the bar which goes across the spacebar hasn't been properly installed. Estimated turn around was around 5-14 days and I don't want to send my laptop away to get back a laptop with the exact same issue. If anyone can reproduce this issue on their Yoga 330, that would be handy so I know not to bother sending it away.

This may be a silly question, but are the right and left clicks for the touchpad suppose to be silent? I've been using a wireless mouse since I got the laptop and only realized the touchpad right and left clicks are silent when my mouse broke and I had to start using the touchpad.  If not, does it mean something's broken, or is it something I can customize? And if it's customizable, how can I get the clicks back? I'm afraid I might press too hard or something and break the touchpad. I need those clicks. Help please.

Unfortunately, I don't remember how I did this. It was definitely done unintentionally at a time when I was attempting to streamline the start-up.
 

A:left click mouse touchpad delayed

When you say delayed do you mean that the left mouse button does not work for a certain period of time? What happens if you try to push the button before this delayed period is up? A good place to start is to possibly try reinstalling the synaptic software and see where you get from there.... What is the specific model of your pc?

Whenever I use my touchpad and left click, it sometimes right clicks. To temporarily remedy this, I would just right click to make it stop. I already resetted my laptop to its factory settings because of it. Before I factory resetted it, it would constantly happen all the time and also the scrolling would not work and it would select stuff on the desktop screen by itself. However, it is still happening. I did all the lenovo driver updates that Thinkvantage System update tells me to do. It is happening less frequently after I resetted it to factory settings but it is still annoying. This problem somehow occurs much less frequently if I use an external mouse.

I have a brand-new EliteBook 840 running Windows 10. The left touchpad button sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. It's like this: If I click a second time (or a third time) with the left button, without having moved the cursor (not double click, but two separated clicks), then the computer doesn't respond to the click. If I click by tapping on the touchpad area (instead of pressing the button) then everything is fine. But I don't like tapping! If I click with an external mouse connected via USB then everything is fine. If I move the cursor and then click, then it works. The problem is very annoying because each time the computer doesn't respond to the clicks, I have to move the cursor and then click again.

Hello everyone,
so I own a dv6tqe-7000, and I've had a strange problem. Sporadically, the left/primary click function on my touchpad would disable. I can still use the touchpad itself and the right click function but left clicking or tapping to click will not work.

I switched the functions in Synaptics (Right click to primary click, and left click to secondary click), and the left click ended working but the primary function still did not respond (ie. Right click didn't work). So I don't think it's a hardware issue.

There are some 'fixes' to this as I've discovered:
- Restart the laptop
- Kill explorer.exe function and re-open it
- Hold both mouse buttons down and move the touchpad around for half a minute. I don't know how or why this works but I read it on a post. Only tested one time though so don't read too much into it.

I've tried removing the battery and replugging it in. I'm also on the latest driver on Synaptics (I updated to the new one after it first occured, still happens). I am also on the latest BIOS. What is the problem and what could I do? Could it be the drivers (Should I uninstall Synaptics/touchpad in Device manager and do a clean install)?

I've found a couple people with the same problem but have yet to find a solution. Again, it is a sporadic event and honestly doesn't occur too often. Any advice would be appreciated.
EDIT: After switching the functions to confirm it was a software pro... Read more

Hi everyone, I just bought a Thinkpad Yoga 14 S3 and I have an issue with the ALPS touchpad.Whenever I click the touchpad (physical click not tap) with a finger on it, it opens the right click menu...This is very annoying as I always use two finger, one for moving the cursor around and one for clicking.I have the lastest touchpad driver (8.216.1616.137) and I am on windows 10. I tried any possible solution I could think of with no luck:- Went through the touchpad option thousand times.- Tried changing entries in Regedit (change Enable2Click to 0), and what it did was that is now does not recognize it as a right click, but not as a left click either. When I click with the finger on the touchpad, the cursor now jumps but does not register any click. Any ideas on how to solve the issue?Thanks in advancePierre

I have exactly the same problem on my Thinkpad E460! This almost makes my laptop unusable. Please update this driver asap Lenovo. P.S. If you uninstall the ALPS driver and use the standard Windows PS2/Mouse driver, this problem does not occur.

A really strange behavour happens on my E460: when I use touchpad to left click on a file, it becomes a mouse hold, which means if I move the mouse pointer at this moment, the file is dragged. I can only release the mouse hold by doing a mouse click again. It really makes a lot of trouble as it causes me to accidentally drag some files. Also, when I am using excel, when I click on a cell, due to the mouse click becomes a mouse hold, so when I move the mouse pointer, it begins to highlight a range of cells. I tried to updated the BIOS, and also update to the latest touchpad driver, but none of them solve the problem. I can only solve the problem by removing the touchpad driver, but this cause all the useful features (e.g. scrolling by using 2 fingers) disappear. Also, it causes another problem. When I'm using excel, I can't double click a cell to edit the text inside. I need to triple click to edit, which is very strange. So removing the touchpad driver can solve one problem but bringing two other problems........ Anyone had such kind of issues too? Any way to solve it? Thanks.

So far everything seems good on my new P50 apart from one slightly odd issue. When I click on a target with the trackpad left mouse button, lets say the target is the start icon... the start menu will open, but then if I click the button again it will close and immediately reopen again (instead of just closing). If i move the pointer to a different part of the start icon and click then it will close ok.  Really quite strange. This does not happen with the trackpoint buttons... they work as they should.  Same with tap to click - works fine.  My Synaptics driver is:  Synaptics Pointing Device, 19.3.4.37 (08/09/2016)Windows says it is the latest driver. Everything else about the trackpad and buttons seems fine. Any ideas what coul dbe causing this?  It does not appear to be a random double click, as a slight movement to a different position on the icon makes the click work as intended every time.

A:Satellite Pro M40 - touchpad and left click repair guidance

Hi!

I think you will not get some guides because only an ASP (authorized service provider) has someone. These documents are not for the public.

I don?t know how to disassemble the notebook but this procedure is tricky. You must remove a lot of screws and parts like keyboard, LCD, upper cover and so far.

*You can try it and try but it?s your own risk*. I think this should do by a notebook technician.

By the way, I founded a maybe interesting article for you:

Dell Inspiron 17R 5737: A few months ago the left click button of the touchpad got deflated from bottom left edge and the click got sticky, if I clicked on right top edge, it worked sometimes but mostly left click stayed pressed.
I opened the laptop and found that the small plastic attached to the button, which inflates it back is broken. I tried to fix it using glue but it didn't work. As it was part of the whole Palmrest thus I ordered a new palmrest. After receiving the new palmrest, I detached the buttons circuit and touchpad circuit from the old palmrest and attached it to the new palmrest.
Strangely now, the left click button is partially sticky, if I click on the left half of the button it sticks, if I click on the right half of the button it works properly 90% of the time. The button is no more deflated and it inflates and deflates properly on clicking, there is nothing broken in the new palmrest, the clicking sound is fine, there is just 1 button for left click then how it is working differently for left half and right half, that I am not able to understand.
Next step can be to order new buttons circuit but I am not sure if this will fix the problem.
This is my work laptop thus it is effecting my work and time quite badly, any help will be highly appreciated.

A:Left Mouse Click on Laptop Touchpad stopped working

I assume you have checked your settings in Control Panel > Mouse Properties?

It will save a lot of time if you can determine whether this is a hardware problem or a software problem.
Try this: Download a copy of UBUNTU. Put this on a USB stick. Boot from the USB stick and choose to Run The Program (you do not need to install it on your hard drive). Then check to see if the mousepad works OK in UBUNTU. If it does then it is a Windows/Software problem. If it doesn't then it is a defective mousepad.

I have a Dell XPS 14z which is about 11 months old. I have Windows 7. I am having trouble with left-clicking.

I first noticed the problem while working in AutoCAD. I suddenly stopped being able to use my left-click button at all. I hit ctrl+S to save so that I could reboot, hoping the button would resume functioning when I restarted. Strangely left-click immediately started working again. Initially I only had this problem in AutoCAD. The semester ended and I stopped using AutoCAD. I was assuming that there was a problem with that program and planned to reinstall before the next (this) semester of school.

Then, I started experiencing left-click problems while browsing the internet, I use Chrome. I do tend to open a lot of tabs at a time when I am running a search, don't know if this is relevant. Left-click sometimes would randomly stop working, sometimes it would just lag - click..... wait.... action long after expected, sometimes it would randomly also start working again. Sometimes when using the left button to drag a scroll bar in chrome it would "stick" (the function would stay on, the button did not appear to be physically stuck and this happens with mouse or touchpad) and moving the cursor away from the scroll bar would navigate the page up and down. The non functional left-click problem would also occur in Windows, when I would say attempt to go into device manager to see what was up.

A:Left-click misbehaving both on touchpad and wired optical mouse

Hello and welcome JM looks like you have tried just about everything maybe you are looking at a warranty job my friend because I was going to suggest cleaning the mouse but if the same thing happens with the touch pad then that isn't much help.

If most of the drivers or whatever software fixes have not worked then just maybe a problem with the internal connections as you say a hardware issue, it only takes one dry joint or a dodgy cap to throw the whole thing out.

By the way you haven't spilt anything on the machine or dropped it or maybe a voltage spike if you have been using the mains adaptor without a surge protection device?

Hi, After installing Windows 10, I began to have issues with the left click button on the touchpad.  The left click suddenly stops functioning, and it does not work again until I reboot the computer.  It is not a hardware issue as I have tested this by changing the functionality between the left and right buttons, at which point the left button works again.  My sense is there is a bug in the touchpad's driver software under the new operating system.  I have tried to uninstall and reinstall drivers, I have scanned to ensure the computer does not have a virus, and I have reinstalled the operating system.  None of this solves the issue.  The left mouse click on the touchpad will still suddenly stop working at some period of time after using the computer (generally after leaving the computer idle and later resuming use).   Any ideas, thoughts, suggestions are welcome.  Is it a bug in the driver software for the touchpad that needs to be fixed for Windows 10?   Thanks you!

RELEVANCY SCORE 70

I have a thinkpad yoga 14 with the 5th gen intel processor (if it matters)My problem is that the left click button that you use with the track ball, not the actual touch pad, is not coming back up. It still registers a click but it doesnt come back up. Sometimes it doesn't "unclick" so when I drag the cursor, it higihlights everything on the screen. This is a hardware issue, I was wondering if anyone knows what the button mechanism looks like or know which part to replace? thank you in advance!
