It would appear that the left/right touch pad buttons have failed. You will have 3 options at this point in time. 1) Use an external wireless mouse such as a Logitech Wireless Mouse M505 for roughly $39.99 2) Use alternative features on the laptop. Left click is typically simulated by tapping or double tapping the touch pad itself and right click can be simulated, in most cases, by single tapping the icon and pressing the pop-up menu button, typically located between the right alt and ctrl buttons. 3) Search for a replacement component online and replace the component. Touch pad replacement will require you to remove all casing screws from the laptop and then remove the case. You will then expose the screws and cabling for the touch pad. I can not give more detailed instructions as this varies per laptop model.
Try going to Control Panel - Hardware and sound - mouse. Once you have the menu for the mouse open, go to device settings. Click settings, and all of the advanced controls for the functions of your mouse pad can be found there.
This could be a hardware or software (windows) problem.
If it is hardware it could be as simple as the connector ribbon inside is loose or that the touch-pad unit is failing. A replacement is $30-$80 plus labour.
I've seen a few of these where the problem is windows acting up. Since you have tried the drivers and they didn't fix it what you can try is go to control panel - system - hardware - device manager - mice and other pointing devices
Open that and select and then delete the pointing device or mouse shown. Then reboot. Windows is now forced to detect the touchpad hardware and reinstall the drivers. That usually does the trick unless it is hardware caused.
Now the tricky bit. Once you delete the mouse you will have to close and reboot using only your keyboard. You need windows to reboot normally, you can't just pull the power cord. To do this use ALT-F4. Hold down the ALT key and press the F4 that will close the windows until you get back to the windows desktop where it will close down windows. When you start the computer again your mouse will be detected and will work again. What we won't know is if that is enough to reset things and get your buttons working until you try this. You can try this a few times but generally if the drivers are right and you have done this then its time to replace the touch-pad.
you are going to have to go into the control panel and to the mouse properties. in there you will be able to put the icon back in the taskbar. i dont know why it changed itself though. on my dell a couple times i had to reinstall the mouse drivers for some reason. i just went to dell.com and got them there. hope this helps
I've had this happen to me by accident once and a while. if it's many months then possibly re-installing the touchpad drivers (or updating them) would help.
You can also adjust mouse settings in the control panel, found in my computer on the left side of the window.
Hope this helps a little, It does sound like the buttons are sticky. be sure to rate! :)
