Touchpad Left button does Right Button actions and Right Button does nothing

Q: Touchpad Left button does Right Button actions and Right Button does nothing

I have a Toshiba Satellite L4550-S5976 running under Windows 7. When I start it up (and if I catch it at the right time), the touchpad buttons work fine for a few minutes. After the machine completely boots, the touchpad button problems start - the left button performs as the right button and the right button does nothing.

On a lark, I plugged in a USB mouse and rebooted. When I do that, the mouse works fine AND the touchpad buttons work properly. Carrying around a mouse isn't always convenient so I'd like to have the machine work as expected.

I tried updating the touchpad drivers - that did not fix the problem. I even reinstalled Windows 7 on the machine - that did not fix the problem either.

Any ideas what I could do next to fix this problem?

Thanks, Brian

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.)

Man this feels weird. I'm usually the one giving help, not asking for it lol.

Computer:

This problem started after I left my computer on sleep for a couple hours. When I woke it up, the touchpad taps and left mouse button clicks brought up the right-click context menu and nothing on the taskbar responded to the cursor hovering over it. Also for some reason pressing the Windows key on the keyboard wouldn't bring up the Start menu. The only way I've found to correct this is to plug in a USB mouse and press the right MB on it. I also was able to fix it one time by uninstalling the Synaptics drivers and letting Windows restart and find the mouse, but after trying to reinstall the Synaptics drivers then uninstalling them again after the problem reappeared this method no longer works. In either case left click functionality is restored but there is no right click functionality period on the touchpad/buttons. However the USB mouse that I plug in works normally. Also after left click is restored, everything on the taskbar and elsewhere responds as it should with the exception of not being able to right click on anything (which sucks in W7). I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Synaptics drivers to see if that would fix it but after reinstalling them and restarting, the problem came back. Another thing I've noticed is that even with the Synaptics drivers installed the vertical scroll area doesn't respond.... Read more

Hello, I'm having a problem with my Thinkpad L430. The right bottom button on the Touchpad is registering as a left click rather than a right click (which normally brings up the pop-up menu. It is enabled and is set to this in the Elan software. I've also tried changing the command, however it simply doesn't work. When I click the 'mouse button reverse' option in Windows, the left click brings up the pop-up menu, so it probably isn't a software issue but to get a second opinion would be great. I have all of the latest drivers and software updates, and the Elan software is set up to default. I have also completely reinstalled Windows and rolling back to an earlier driver version, but it still isn't working. Any advice on how to make the right button work again would be greatly appreciated! I'm running Windows 7. Thanks.

Any ideas how to fix this?

P.S. I have two sets of buttons one above and one below the touchpad, it is the one above the touchpad that has the problem while the one below it is fine.

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.

I turned on my 6 months old Acer Aspire One as usual and realised that something was wrong with my mouse. The left button simply doesn't work. Neither does tapping the touchpad. Nothing happens no matter how many times I push or tap. I can move the cursor around just fine and the right mousebutton still works. I can also plug in a USB mouse and use that instead.
I have checked the mouse properties. Under the tab "Hardware" the mouse is listed "Synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad", and the unit status says it works correctly. I also checked the preferences, and both tapping and buttons are activated and set to normal.
I have tried restarting, removing the battery and Fn-F7 without any luck.
I have also tried switching preferences to left-handed - that gave a funny result: Both the right button and tapping the touchpad functioned like a right-click except now they could also for instance close a window and open the start-menu. The left-button still didn't have any function what so ever.
Hope someone can help me.

Hello, The left button on my Synaptics Touchpad doesn't work when I'm pressing a key on the keyboard. Initially, I thought it was a PalmCheck problem, but that feature was already disabled. The right click works fine and so does the touchpad itself. The only problem is the left button. I tried reinstalling an updated driver, but that didn't fix the problem. I tried the generic Synaptics driver and both the HP Windows 8 and 8.1 versions. They all worked fine for all touchpad functions except for the left button which still doesn't work when I'm pressing a keyboard key. I tried using a wireless mouse and the left click worked fine so the problem is only with the touchpad.

Well I sure can't find where to post this.  It's not a question it's a solution to a problem that was driving me nuts and I wanted other people to know this. If your touchpad left button stops working and not for the usual reasons - this is what will make it work again.1.  Unplug power cord if plugged in 2.  Remove battery3.  Hold down start button for about 20 seconds4.  Put in battery5.  Reboot I would actually like the whole world to know this as I have googled countless times and never found a solution that works.  I have the Acer Aspire One - not one of the locations listed either. Hope this helps someone!  DonnaB

I am running Windows 10 (Creators Update) and have been doing so for quite a while on a laptop. Recently, whilst playing a game, I was clicking the touchpads left hand button (mouse1) rapidly until suddenly it stopped working completely.

In addition, tapping to activate mouse 1 is also not working with the touchpad. Right clicking is still working and mouses are also working properly.

When I looked to see what the touchpad was doing (and if any of the buttons were activated) I noticed that it says the left side button is always being clicked and held (even though I'm not pressing nor holding it)?

Is there some way of fixing this or has the hardware completely broke?

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.

HiI am getting very frustrated with this problem and I would love it if someone were to help me out. I prefer to use my touchpad by clicking with my thumb and then dragging with my index finger. However, the bottom of the touchpad still has touch input so when I want to click and drag, it doesn't always work or the mouse doesn't move smoothly. This is because the touchpad thinks I want to move the mouse with my thumb, and doesn't read the input from my index finger. In order to solve this, I would like to find a way to disable the touchpad in only the bottom (i.e. create a deadzone), so that it only reads clicking inputs, and not touch input. If anyone knows how to do this please tell me! Thank you!

Hi all

I have an Equium P300-16T with a Synaptics touchpad.
A few months back I had the following problem. As soon as I touch the touchpad, or left/right button, the icon appears to show the left button as being depressed; it would be fine up until this point. I updated the drivers, tried a system restore, checked under the touchpad button for obstructions etc and nothing changed.
I did a completely fresh reinstall of Windows ... still the same problem. I suspected a faulty touchpad, so contacted Topaz for a replacement touchpad, fitted that and still the same problem.

Sooooo ... having eliminated faulty drivers/software/hardware, I'm running out of ideas. Is there anything else I can check?

Works fine with a USB mouse.

Thanks

> As soon as I touch the touchpad, or left/right button, the icon appears to show the left button as being depressed; it would be fine up until this point

I think you should check the settings.
In Control Panel -> Mouse -> Last tab (Advanced) -> Advanced settings button

Here you should be able to get all touchpad settings.
In my case I found interesting function in Pointer speed and tapping settings.

There is a taping area and if you enable taping you could get a access to other tapping settings.
The option is called DragLock? in my case its set to Auto release and auto release delay is set to short.
Recommend checking this!

Hi,

Today I turned on my computer and it automatically restarted itself. After it restarted I instantly noticed that UAC was turned off (because I have apps on the desktop which dont start without UAC but the UAC logo on the app's icons was gone). So I quickly checked UAC and saw that the slider was all the way down and thus UAC was turned off. I tried to enable UAC again but after moving the slider up and pressing OK nothing happens and once I enter UAC again the slider is all the way down again.

I have tried the following to resolve the problem:
*Full system scan with Avast (2 threats deleted)
*Full system scan with Malwarebytes (Nothing detected)
*Start CMD with admin rights and sfc /scannow (at the end it says that all problems couldn't be detected)
*Try sfc /scannow in safe mode

I am stuck on what to try next

Thanks

A:Windows 7 UAC Problem (OK Button not confirming actions)

You could try this Fix it: Fix security issues to protect and secure Windows automatically

You could try more scanners for example Microsofts: Microsoft Safety Scanner - Free Virus Scan with the Microsoft Safety Scanner

If you haven't enabled "Scan for rootkits" in Malwarebytes(settings - detection and protection) you could also try that.

After reinstalling the driver and updating the BIOS, I still have this problem: When I go into the Synaptics Clickpad settings, I want to set the click actions as follows: 1 finger left click, corner tap right click, and 3 finger middle click. The Configure buttons next to each option are grayed out, but I can still choose these from the dropdown menus. But when I click Apply and Ok, 3 finger tap brings up Start instead of middle click, and when I tap the corners nothing happens. So I changed 2 finger tap to be middle click instead of right click, and after I did that, it still interpreted 2 fingers as right click.  I tried to make 3 fingers the Back button, and it still gave me the Start menu. I tried looking in the registry, but I don't know what the values mean to change them.

After pressing switch on/off button, he gets directly (pay attention to this) to the login screen where he can see the usernames for all users.

Hi every one,
Recently I purchased new PC,
After installing windows XP Pro SP3 I found that there is a missing button in Power option properties. The missing button is (When I press the sleep button on my computer), I can find only (When I press the power button on my computer).
My system configuration is as follow
Mother board Gigabyte EP45-UD3R Rev 1.1
My graphic card is ATI Radeon HD 5670
Windows XP SP3
RAM 4Gb Kingston DDRII
CPU Core 2 Quad 2.66 GHz
It worth saying that I can shutdown, hibernate or put my PC into sleep mode, so the functions are working but only the button is missing.
I will appreciated very much if some can advise me how to restore the missing button. Is there some option in BIOS that will enable this button?
I contacted Gigabyte customer support, but they directed me to Microsoft, I also contacted ATI but they directed me to Microsoft or BIOS settings. In my BIOS I can't find any option that may affect this button. Any advise will be appreciated
Best regards

A:[SOLVED] Button of (When I press sleep button) is not available in my Power option pr

Does the case actually have a separate Sleep Button? I suspect it's not even connected, as the motherboard manual doesn't show a connection for a Sleep Button, only a Power Button.
Windows Power Options won't list it, as it doesn't exist.

If you have a Sleep Button on the keyboard, it might not be listed in Power Options either. That would be up to the Driver software to add that option. You may have to use the software that came with the keyboard to configure the sleep button on the keyboard.

Hello all,A few months ago I started noticing that my main power on button would not work, so I couldn't start my Yoga 700 laptop. Then on, I started using the Novo button then going into the normal start up mode, since my main power button doesn't work. However, nowadays, when my computer has shut down/lost battery the Novo button doesn't display the menu screen for normal start up. The keyboard flashes and the fans start up but there is no menu screen (it's all black). So now, I have no way of starting up my computer normally. However, I do realise now that if I take out my RAM card and put it back in, the Novo menu pops up and I can go into normal start up. Is there any way of fixing this issue or do I just have to move onto another device? I'm no technical whizz, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is that the only problem now ?
It appears you do not have a antivirus program running, why is that ?

Toshiba Satellite w/53G HD available. Running Vista Home Premium, Firefox, Thunderbird, Open Office Suite.

When several programs are running with multiple browser windows open, the task bar is not accessible. Mouse over results in the hourglass appearing. I can minimize open windows and open a program off the desktop.

I suspect it is a memory issue. Suggestions?

A:Task bar/start button/Windows button not accessible

while this is occurring press Ctrl. +Alt. + Del. and go to the performance tab, how much of the CPU and RAM is getting utilized?

Also, how much RAM is installed in your system?

Hi, I'm new to the forum, and fairly new to Windows 8, which I've been using from the desktop as I can't get on with the Start menu and its tiles. Not using Start8. Anyway, I was using the desktop taskbar with its Start button and Show desktop button and today they have both disappeared. How can I get them back?

For the past couple of months, I've had an issue where the button that normal puts the computer to sleep has been replaced with the shutdown button because it thinks i've downloaded updates, even when I haven't been connected for a week.

I wouldn't normally mind something like this but, it makes the computer start up and shutdown take forever. thanks
*!*!*!* Please refer to later post as I've explained the problem better there. *!*!*!*

Hi everyone, I have a very weird error here...
My PC is a P4, 3,4GHZ, 1GB RAM, Radeon x800xl running WIN XP with SP2
But the real problem is my keyboard... I got an a4 tech kehyboard AntiRSI keyboard, and a few minutes ago while I pressed alt+tab to get out of a game (PES5) it went in stand by mode....and the problem is I can't even get out of it...
I restarted, went in windows again and tried to see what proccesses are running and pressed ctrl + alt + delete and it went in stand by again...
Anyway I founded that this is caused when pressing the left ALT button...My pc seems to confuse it as my sleep button ( I tested this by going in Control Panel - Power Options - Advanced and played with the "When I press my sleep button on my computer" and selected different options and when I pressed the left alt button it did what I selected in there )

Does anyone know what's the cause of this and how I can fix it?
