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.
The mouse click changes are based on OS used. In windows OS ..Click Start button on your windows desktop. Select and click on Control Panel from the menu. Select and click Mouse from the control panel. From the Mouse Properties Window, select the Buttons tab. Select and check the Switch Primary and Secondary Buttons check box. Click the OK button.
Your mouse buttons should now be switched around, so now when you click your left mouse button, it will behave as a right-click, and clicking your right mouse button will behave as a left click.
is there a touch pad lock button, that locks the pad? if there isn't then there is most likely excess debris or dust or something under there that needs to be blown out with airisol can. If both of those solutions don't work then i would check to make sure the driver is installed for the touch pad. Good Luck. and i hope it works out.
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.
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
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.
