Can't Click any Buttons

Q: Can't Click any Buttons

My friend's laptop has been acting up lately and he asked me for some help. Some website that he used to visit regularly will not load and if they do, the layout and graphics are all messed up. Also, he can't seem to click on any buttons at all. I tried to install Norton but I can't click on the buttons to register his version. Therefore, I cannot run a virus scan to see if that is the problem. Can anyone help me fix his laptop?

Preferred Solution: Can't Click any Buttons

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.)

A: Can't Click any Buttons

You can do a virus scan online @ www.housecall.antivirus.com also try empting your TEMP folder and Internet Temp Folder
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

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?

A:left click and right click buttons

When I ask google "how do I" questions [regarding screen resolution or appearance or absolutely anything else] I get instruction pages and/or video instructions. None of them make any sense. That is, the step by step instructions don't match what my computer shows me. The buttons are never where the instructions say they are so I cannot make even one adjustment. I detest all platforms after XP and I'd love it to get that look happening again. Here's my info:

My Computer has worked awesome for months. Now all of a sudden after it sits for awhile.(Like 15 mins +) It wont let me click on any windows 7 buttons.
Cant click on icons in the quick launch area.
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!

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.

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...

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".

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.

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 will mainly play online poker with applications on it and browse and listen to music.

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.

double clicking on a file that would launch a program hangs for a while then opens the program.
using the delete key hangs
Otherwise performance is normal everything runs fine while using all programs.

This problem started today, after I tried to copy a folder containing MP4 files while viewing one of the MP4 files in the folder. Yeah, I know....I remain my own worst enemy.

Thanks

Hello, Would someone please be able to help me. I recently got my computer back after being repaired and it was on a small resoultion under the 1000's. I bought a new screen to go with it and just turned it on. I went to display settings and changed resoultion to 1920x1080 and now its just a big blank stretched wallpaper with no icons, task menu/bar or start menu. I also can't click or right click thus I have no way to change this back. I've tried going into normal safe mode and display settings changed it to the smallest, restarted the computer and its doing the exact same thing. I know no fixes and would really appreciate all the help I can get.

A:Changed Resoultion, Icons, Taskbar, Start menu All gone. Can't Click or right click

Follow the below steps:
Press CTRL+Alt+delete together and hit enter
Click on File and New Task (Run)
Type "Control" without any quotes. This will open control panel Window, from where you can easily get to display settings options and change your PC resolution back to it's initial state.

Good Luck.
Regards,
Oliver

I have recently noticed some odd behavior in my computer, for some reason when I open My Computer and double click on a hard drive (I have 3) it will not open the drive. However I can still right-click and choose Explore to get around it.

At first I thought that this was a virus but after 3 scans with SpyBot I am still clean. Any ideas? It's not critical but I do find it odd.

A:[SOLVED] Baffled again, double-click does not open hard drives but right click will

What happens when you double click? Nothing, or Search opens, or a command prompt, or something else?

I would appreciate any advice on how to fix this..My computer caught a virus and screwed up the admin account. I managed to get that bug removed. Since then, I have problems when I click the results from search engines. When I click search results, I get sent to different sites. I typically use Google Chrome but it's happened on Bing as well. For example, I did a google search on "virus removal". The link on the Google page was for "www.symantec.com/security_response/removaltools.jsp" but when I click the link, it goes to "http://answers.nixxie.com/s.php?k=virus%20removal&adid=13190&ts=1001SMA_A14&subid=263328-165793-133-27681&click=1609561864-41d3.11f1.50788005.3b97&ref=http://market-find.com/index.php?search=virus%20removal"Cicking "www.kaspersky.com › Support" takes me to "http://r.looksmart.com/og/pr=Psr;ro=1;rc=4;digest=2318dc8762ee3009c073e486df8a499b;kid=6f71bb91533de8f9bb8d92689e59bf39;t=1350074566;v=8;data=gg1A2cbB_NiFMmKDDBkRvp9xLNM-gHzw1ipDmvpgzJM7kA2vsa63GrjukRD6oalWiDGbgjD4_lX7zIN4HI9nmNM701OzoDmp2aba_b-8rQiuWrRnSR6SldsYzIg9duKKiVELnFMfFbijvsXXHu4z3OBZgeOJjsbbEsL9UNuMEytcIVbfpvA8EA;uh=157x17525143547048890673;la=2438185;lm=3039186;ad=756865385;ag=766460146;kw=1609561864;qt=virus%20removal;vr=17;lt=EM;ip=50.80.167.198;pt=;st=118.25.90.0.0.0.0;os=929.249.9.0.4.230.2.6;sy=keyword;my=smart;geo=894417;vid=0;subid=137419-386-27681;opi=bizz_main;lg=0;sqid=610B9C4C-14AD-11E2-A738-E60E0A2C1E10...

WLM opens emails with a single click rather than just selecting the email. The boxes selecting double click to open are checked. This box is in the folders section and may be for folders ouyside of WLM. I want single click to select and double click to open emails.

Correct. "Folder Options" refers to Windows Explorer. The "folders" within a program, like WLM, are under the control of the program. However I noticed that my version of WLM (2009) behaves the way you want without the "Reading" pane turned on. If I turn it on then a single click shows the email in the reading pane. If I turn it off, it takes a double click to open the email to view it. The reading pane is controlled via the "Layout" Viewing option.

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?

thanks
