In the Tote n Go laptop, when I try to select an activity by pushing the number and selecting the same through mouse, the mouse doesn't respond to the click. However, the left, right, forward, backward motions of mouse are recognized, only the mouse click is not recognized by the laptop. Any advice on how to resolve this problem
It is very likely one of the wires came loose inside the mouse itself. There are 4 black foot pads on the bottom of the mouse. With the batteries removed, pry off the four feet and remove those four screws. You will see two tiny brown wires that correspond to the mouse button.
Examine these two smaller brown wires and ensure they are not loose or have become disconnected from the small computer chip inside. The two smaller brown wires are on the interior of the chip and should be soldered to the board, opposite a larger brown wire and a larger white wire. The two larger wires, brown and white go back into the main cable that connects inside the laptop.
If these four wires appear to be intact, the next step would be to remove the two larger screws in the central blue piece with two larger holes on either side. This will release the mouse from the base. Examine the two solder points where the two brown wires are connected for any breaks. If these look good, there are two more screws that hold this chip in place. remove them and examine the button of the mouse.
Many others have found the actual push button under the mouse fails.

Sorry, I don't know much about them, but try pulling the batteries and unplugging it too, if it has a power cord. Then hold down the power button for 20 seconds or so to drain the charge in the capacitors. I hope it works for you. By the way, your question is written better than any question I have seen here.
If an external mouse does not work correctly, you may need to install device drivers for it. Windows does not support all 'mice' just by plugging them in. Download and install the drivers for the mouse from the manufacturers web site. Do NOT do a factory recovery for a device driver problem.
One of the innovative features about laptops is the built-in trackpad in lieu of a standard computer mouse. This device eliminates the need to have a mouse dangling from your PC as you tote it from palce to place. Unfortunately, this feature can also wreak havoc on word processing, as the text cursor will jump around the document if the trackpad is accidentally grazed during typing. Fortunately, this is a problem that is simple to correct for both PCs and Macs.
Click on the "Start" icon. Select "Control Panel," then select "Hardware and Sound." Select "Mouse," then select "Device Settings." Select "Settings." Under this tab select the option for "Tapping." This will let you turn off the feature that moves the cursor when you tap the touchpad. Stopping Cursor Jumping for Macintosh Select "System Preferences." Select "Trackpad." Uncheck the box next to "Clicking." This will disable the tapping feature.
