The right side of my touch pad control button has stopped working


Did you check the settings for the left and right buttons under the mouse properties. Normally the left should be set on Click and the right should be set on Shortcut. If it's set to NONE then it will be inoperable. Better yet you can click the Default tab for buttons. Otherwise, it sounds like your touch pad needs to be replaced. The immediate remedy to this is to just go purchase a USB mouse and voila, you'll have the ability to left and right click.

Left mouse key sticks


Please clean your mouse - the button might be obstructed by food, or whatever:) If you need to, you can unsnap the mouse key with a small electronic screwdriver (without braking any buttons) and then push the button back into place after you have wiped the mouse clean, or, if there is no obstruction, you might have a damaged mouse that needs replacing. Be careful to ask the computer salespeople for a non-Ethernet "Logitech(C)-emulation) mouse if you have a Windows PC computer from before 2000-2005. If you have a Mac, you might have to call warranty, or, replace existing mouse if cleaning doesn't solve the problem. But, there might be room for a DYI of you can make time for the mouse to be checked under appropriate lighting and in a clean room environment. More about that at another post.

Hi, dry it using hair blower to make sure the moist go. To fix your mouse left button, try to unscrew the mouse casing and see to it that by clicking it really contacting with the switch button. Wear and tear also damage the solder of the switch button. it will be fixed by re-soldering the mouse switch if loosen.

On touch pad, the left and right click below the pad, for the mouse, the left button doesn't click anymore?


Since the left button is a primary button it gets used quite a lot thus the button fails at some point in time.

Either the button has broken or the spring mechanism has broken.
Don't worry it can be repaired, claim warranty support if you can. The laptop needs to be partially disassembled and the buttons inspected. The button may need replacing.

Take care!

Aspire 5100 mouse is frozen how to fix problem


Try restarting your computer by pushing the windows button on the bottom of the keyboard on the left side, generally next to the ALT button. use your arrow keys to move over to the shut down button, select restart and restart your computer. Or you can shut down and then push the power button to start up your computer. This should help reset your laptop and unfreeze your mouse.

If this does not work, go to the control panel, again using the windows button and the arrow keys. select mouse, then go thru the tabs on the window to make sure that your mouse pad is selected to control your mouse.

If you found this information helpful, please remember to leave positive feedback.

Thank You,

The left mouse button does not work on my IBM


Windows has the ability to swap mouse buttons, mainly for those who mouse left-handed. It looks to the right button for left button action. It seems that the actual left button is not functioning. A work-around is to use the right button as the left as you are now doing, AND, use the solid windows button (the one to the immediate left of the right control key) as the right button. Not as easy, but it works.
