If the left mouse button is not working, then it is most likely the microswitch in the button has failed. To fix, you will need to replace the palmrest assembly

My dell inspiron laptop's left click button isn't working as well as it use to, i think it maybe worn down, is there anyway i could get it replaced, and if so, where?


Simple solution with less cost is please use the external USB mouse.(Small size also avaible in market.) You are not mentioned the location where you are, Please locate the nearest Laptop service center for repair/replacement.
Try once with installing the Touch pad drivers.. .

Try going to Control Panel - Hardware and sound - mouse. Once you have the menu for the mouse open, go to device settings. Click settings, and all of the advanced controls for the functions of your mouse pad can be found there.

Right click not working


go into the mouse icon in the control panel and make sure its not disabled in there. If it is then enable it. If its not disabled in there then the board underneath your mousepad is bad. The right tactile button undernath the right mouse button is bad so the whole board would need to be replaced cause it comes as one whole board. You can get it directly from Dell or get one from Ebay.

Mouse pad


you would be better off using an optical mouse that has a usb or ps2 connector ( depending on what your laptop supports ) usb would be better though less chance of pins bending as there are none on a usb connection ( at least not like a ps2 connector )

Also download the latest drivers for the touchpad and make sure that the scrolling options for or on the touchpad are not configured too thickly which will be in the touch pad settings.

Dell latitude c610 touch pad left button problem


Will your laptop work properly with an external mouse? If so, check your touchpad settings in "Control Panel" by selecting "Mouse". Here you can reassign your Buttons. Try setting your Right Button function to "Double Click". If the "Double Click" function works on your Right Button then chances are you have a problem with your Touchpad Assembly which means it will have to be replaced. Dell refers to it as a "Palmrest" which they will replace if still under warranty.
