One other thing you can try is a can of compressed air attach supplied straw, lift left button with fingernail give good few blasts of compressed air in the crevice to clean out any dust and dirt, some people dismantle the laptop for easier cleaning.
If you're very lucky, there's no damage. Press the central button between the left click and right click buttons. This is a Mouse Lock/Unlock button.
If not, in the short term, you can connect a desktop mouse to one of the USB ports and use that instead of the laptops touchpad..
In the long term, if there has been damage to to the touchpad asssembly, a technician will need to open the panel and seen if it's a loose cable that needs reconnecteing or a damaged component that needs replacing.
Go into Start > Control Panel > Mouse and check the macro settings for your left and right mouse buttons. If those are fine, then check the macro settings in the program you are using. Make sure your mouse isn't set to do the same thing for both clicks.
If that doesn't work, go to Samsung's website and download the latest drives for your touchpad. Reboot the machine and check it again.
The mouse click changes are based on OS used. In windows OS ..Click Start button on your windows desktop. Select and click on Control Panel from the menu. Select and click Mouse from the control panel. From the Mouse Properties Window, select the Buttons tab. Select and check the Switch Primary and Secondary Buttons check box. Click the OK button.
Your mouse buttons should now be switched around, so now when you click your left mouse button, it will behave as a right-click, and clicking your right mouse button will behave as a left click.
Start button > settings > control panel > Mouse properties >device settings > click on the device listed and click settings. Click on buttons in the left pane and make sure the buttons are enabled. If they aren't click on the box to enable and hit apply, then ok.
The same thing is happening with my mouse button. I disassembled the computer to get at the mouse and noticed that there is a rubber ball cover to the button . If that ball gets damaged in any way it appears to cause it to lose the clicky feeling of the button and causes that button to sit a bit lower than it should. Not a real easy fix.
If only the one button is loose then touch pad assembly probably will require replacement. This isn't a big job but usually involves opening the case. Two screws and one connector and button it back up. If the laptop is new you should have this covered by warranty. Cost of the part should be about $30-$70 as well as labor.
If you are lucky you might just have a loose fitting button that you can snap back in to place. With the laptop off try to gently push/wiggle the button down. It might pop back into its mounts. If this works (slight chance) then it might work normally for a while and pop out again. It won't have fixed the wear that let it come loose.
Unless your left mouse button has been severely damaged, it is unlikely that a loose button is the cause of your problem. More likely, it is your touchpad. Chances are your touchpad is set to click when tapped. Oversensitive touchpads can click randomly when you're dragging your finger across the touchpad.
To test this, position your cursor over a link (or other button) but don't press the left mouse button. Instead, lightly tap the touchpad itself. If the link or button is clicked, go to your Control Panel and adjust the Mouse options so your touchpad no longer clicks when tapped. It's usually a setting titled "tap to click" or something along those lines.
