Mouse Setting Problems

When I got my laptop 3 years ago my sister did the settings for my mouse, and I had it set so I had to use the mouse button to click on something, instead of the tapping on the mouse pad which normal people have. I also had the setting where when I slide my finger down the right side of the mouse pad it would scroll down my page. Today I turned on my computer and everytime I tap my mouse pad I am clicking on things - changing the sizes of my windows, clicking on random advertisments, and highlighting things I didnt want highlighted. I tried the basic stuff (going into control panel and looking at my mouse settings... troubleshooting my mouse...) and I cant figure it out!! Please Help!!

First right click on my computer then properties then system restore should be at the top
it's there somewhere try and restore your pc to an earlier date when you know it worked.
Then restart your pc
If that did't help I would definitely do a virus scan

I bought my HP Pavilion dv5 about 3 months ago. On the keypad you have to forcefully push it down if you don't use it within a period of time and the mouse pointer works after that. I was wondering if I...


I have an HP dv5 as well, for about 2 years now. After about a year, I started having problems with the mouse keypad. The left button would work intermittently. I eventually figured out that these mouse buttons aren't designed for heavy use. It's best to use an external mouse. I ended up buying a replacement part off of eBay and installing it (which was a major pain--you have to take apart most of the laptop to get it installed). I'm not sure if the problem you have is related. Was there any impact to the laptop at all that might have loosened something up inside?

I cant get my internal mouse to work anymore. Is there setting that would turn on or off the mouse? My mom always used a plug adn play mouse and now the internal mouse dont work? can you help me


On my acer, holding the function key and pressing F7 will disable the internal mouse. If you repeat the process it will reenable the mouse. This is likely your problem. It may not be the F7 key but the Function keys should have little pictures, and one should indicate it represents the touchpad. If this doesn't work it could be a driver issue. Personally I prefer an external mouse.

Context menu continually pops up - mostly when left mouse button is clicked sometimes when keyboard is used. Context menu key doesn't work.


I think the mouse setting is set to left handed and the right clicker is the main clicker and the left is the context menu key. Knowing this, you should follow these steps.
1. Go to "Control Panel"
2. Click "Printers and Other Hardware"
3. Click "Mouse"
4. Go to the "Buttons" tab and switch the setting to right handed

Mouse: Must click 3 or 4 times to "pick" stuff. Highlighting "lets go"


Try compressed air to clean under the button. Alternativly try tapping the sides of the mouse gently on the desk - this could dislodge anything under the button

I don't think its a driver issue but you may as well try it. look for the mouse driver on the 3M web site
