When you change the left mouse pointer to be the right mouse pointer in the settings of the mouse, then if the right mouse button stops working, it is a software problem and reinstalling drivers is the way to go. If on the otherhand the left mouse button still does not respond, then there is a problem with the switch in the mouse. This is hardware related. Either clean the mouse or buy a new one.
Yes! get a can of compressed air and attach supplied straw, now with your fingernail lift up the left mouse button and give a few good blasts in the crevice, this will clear out any buildup of dirt and grime that has collected, repeat as required. If this fails it will involve laptop service.
Highlight the text you want to delete by holding down the left mouse button and dragging the mouse pointer over the text, then let go of the left mouse button.
Now you can just push the DELETE button or the BACKSPACE button on your keyboard.
Or you can use your mouse to place the mouse pointer on that section of highlighted text and then click the RIGHT mouse button once. Then select CUT from the drop down menu options. This will delete that section of text.
I guess you mean the left touchpad button. With my 900 that happened after only 4months extensive use. Reasons could be dirt in the microswitch under the button or broken contact of switch on MB. To exclude software problem, switch buttons in touchpad driver panel and see if the right button function is not working when pushing the left button. If you don't want to open your eeepc to clean or fix, activate the tapping option in the touchpad options and asign a "2taps with one finger" to a left mouse click for replacement. I work with that for almost 2 yrs now without ever using the left button again. Should you just switch buttons, be prepared that the right button might leave you too in a while.
Are you using Windows XP or Vista? On XP it would be right mouse click on open area of desktop, select properties. On Vista it would be right mouse click on open area of desktop & select personalize. You can change your graphics settings from there. Hope this helps.
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.
