On my HP Pavilion dv8000, the left click button on my pad does not work at all. I have to use the left one but it does get the job doe all the time. I can use the pad to position the cursor but only use the right key to click then scroll on the menu to either back the page or open a file. I even tried to change the mouse options by making the right click the primary on but unsuccessful. The right click does not allow that function.

Click Start/Control Panel andlook for the Mouse and open it to check the mouse properties. Make sureyou don't have the touchpad disabled.
Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad on or off by clicking on thebutton that is located at the top of the touch pad in the middle.
Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad by tapping twice in the upperleft hand corner of the touchpad.
Some models will require a keystroke to toggle the touchpad. Press andHold the ALT or FN function key located at the lower left portion of thekeyboard, then hit the key that toggles the touchpad. The correct key tohit will have the icon of a finger pointing at a square that represents thetouchpad.

My mute button on my hp pavilion dv7-1262us stopped working after I updated my IDT High-Definition Audio CODEC through Microsoft update. The volume worked but the button stayed orange. I went to Device Manager- Sound,video and game controllers then IDT Audio CODEC. Click the Driver tab then click the Roll Back Driver button. This rolled the driver back to an older version but it fixed the problem. This is a Vista machine. Hope this helps.
Does the button actually click when you touch it? If it does not, if you cannot feel a "click" then the button underneath the plastic had collapsed and the actual button board underneath the touchpad area will have to be replaced. It is actually cheaper to just buy another palmrest with the touchpad assembly in place.
