Mouse buttons spontaneously click themselves


I'm afraid that keyboards and mice don't like tea much at all. You can pick up keyboards and mice cheap enough and to be honest they are just not worth repairing. Even a tin of Servisol Video 40, which you can spray on the contacts to clean them will cost you as much as a mouse would!

MOUSE WILL NOT WORK


You haven't said what kind of mouse you have or whether it used to work.
I'll offer some suggestions for the most common problems:
If it used to work but now doesn't, try a system restore back to when it did work.
If that doesn't work--are you using a wireless mouse? If so, are the batteries fresh and are they inserted correctly?
If you are using a wireless mouse, have you pushed the little "connect" button on the bottom?
You haven't said, but is the other mouse a wireless one or a USB mouse? If your USB mouse doesn't work, try another USB port. If you go into the device manager, do you see a "human interface device" or a "mouse" listed? If so, it will tell you the system recognizes the device. If that is missing, there is a good chance the mouse is dead.

The mouse was working before and after windows 7 (32 bit) was installed and then it stopped letting me "left click". Any idea as to why?


If it's just the left click that doesn't work, there's a possibility that the button of the mouse itself is jammed. Try it first on another computer or see if there's dust/dirt on the left button of your mouse. You can also try a different mouse on this computer. If it does work then it's your old mouse that is busted

Dropped wireless mouse and wheel shifted & buttons hard to push


I had a similar problem and was able to fix it. The left mousebutton was clickable, but needed extra force.

After opening the mouse I found that at the side of the mousewheel there was notch pointing upwards, preventing free movement of the left mousebutton. I was able to rotate the ring with the notch back into horizontal position after gently pushing the housing surrounding the mouse wheel wider.

The right button of the mouse is very hard to press.Any ideas how to fix this problem


Hi there, You feel hard because its broken from the inside. i guess if you press the right button from the end side( back side end of pressing location ) then some time it will work. Ok just turn back and open the small screw by screw driver. Then remove the casing. you should find 2 button look like small tap with black head or you can say its a radio button. press both button, if its working perfect and sound like a " tik tak" then you confirm that the button is ok. After that check the mouse casing press button. There you found a small plastic "dot" which is attached back side, with left & right side pressing button. If right side is missing then the "dot" button is broken, that's why you can't press the key. And some time its dislocate So if you do not find that "dot" plastic then i suggest you buy a new mouse or if its dislocate then try to fix it.
Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

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.
