If the left click is not working then you do not need a driver for it. I would advise that you try and carefully open the mouse up and check inside of it. Is a wire out of place or is something broken inside it? If you can still not fix it you can just get a new mouse or ask for expert advice on how to fix it. Hope this helps.

You download the proper Audio driver, AND install it.......

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device

The device is the Audio chipset. What version of Windows operating system hasn't been stated yet.

[ Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

Moving on.......

Reviews suggest the Asus R503U series comes with Windows 64-bit. Therefore it is Win 8 64-bit I will use as an example;

(Where it states -> OS: Select on the blue Down Arrow on the right, and then click on the Operating System you are using......I clicked on Windows 8 64-bit)

Scroll down, click on the + sign to the left of Audio (3)
You will see there are 3 Audio driver files listed.
One is for a Realtek audio chipset, Two are for a VIA audio chipset.
How to know what audio chipset you have? Go to Device Manager.

When in Device Manager click on the + sign next to -> Sounds, video and game controllers
In the Side Menu that comes out, do you see VIA listed, or Realtek?

I'm going to choose VIA for the example......
That would be to download the Top file -
Version V6.0.10.1200

[ What is indicated is to NOT use this upgrade Driver, -> IF you are upgrading your Operating System from Windows 7, to Windows 8.
Since reviews indicate the operating system -> IS Win 8, then it's OK to use this driver.

HOWEVER, if you are upgrading from Win 7 to Win 8 -> STOP, and let me know in a Comment ]

Under the bold -> Version V6.0.10.1200 -> go to Download from.
,right underneath it.
Click on the blue - Global

A small window will come up -

Make SURE there is a Green dot in the small circle, to the Left of Save File.
IF not; left-click in the small circle to the left of Save File.
Now go below in the small window, and click on OK.

A small download window will come up.
Allow the file to download ALL the way, then DOUBLE-click right on the file name.

In the next window go all the way to the Left, and click on -
Extract all files.

At the bottom of the next 3 small windows, click on Next, Next, and Finish.
(Do Not click on anything else. Click on Next, Next, and Finish)

If you are not asked to restart your computer, do so.
Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen; and restart your computer.

You should have your sound back........
If you do not have the Volume icon, let me know in a Comment.
(We will make our way through it together. I haven't used Win 8 yet, nor have it on any computer yet. Still, it's Windows, and it can be figured out.........Isn't like we're talking about!)

None of the above makes sense to you? No prob
Tell me what Windows operating system it is.
Looks like it's either going to be;
Windows 7 32-bit,
Windows 7 64-bit,
Windows 8 64-bit
Should state on the laptop's Palm Rest Cover. If not look at the Windows sticker, on the bottom of the laptop. (DO NOT post the product key, in the Windows sticker. XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX)

Then go into Device Manager, and tell me what audio chipset is used. You don't even need to see - audio chipset. Just tell me if you see - VIA, or Realtek.

Post back in a Comment. Then I will guide you step by step.

Older software PC not working in newer Operating Systems Windows

If you find that your older software is not working in your Win 8 for example. Right click the install icon for that program . A dropdown menu will appear. Then left click troubleshoot compatibility and run the program per instructions. If the program you are trying to install runs successfully then the settings are right. IF NOT, then select an older Operating system where it did work... e.g., Win 7, Vista, XP. You may have to also click Run as Admin if your system is set up that way. Look at the appended image.

I have sony micro vault 2 GB pen drive but win xp sp3. but i plug pen drive the message is flash ''usb Device not recognized'' so how can solve this problem. how can work my pendrive properly.

Goto my computer and right click, left click on properties and find device manager.
Scroll down until you find universal serial bus controllers click on the + sign, right click on 'Enhanced Host Controller', right click and choose update driver, use the internet option to download updated driver, this should hopefully resolve your USB problem.
If it does not update and the usb drivers and they seem fine, then the problem could be with the flash drive, try the drive in another computer to check that it is working.

Dell GX270 running XP pro.8 USB ports (6 on back,2 on front) all stopped working.most of them still show power coming through when I plug in a mouse,and device manager says everything is good to go,but...

left click start, left click control panel, left click system icon, left click device manager, on all USB Root items right click and uninstall, each USB item in the list restart the computer the OS should auto detect each one again. No worries don't be alarmed about performing this task its standard troubleshooting for the USB Root Driver. Once all USB line items reappear check your peripherals that are connected to see if the items are working now. If not perhaps flashing the bios could help, visit and enter your tag number for your desktop GX270 and download the latest bios driver follow the instructions carefully for flashing the bios.

Computer not working correctly

Right click My Computer, left click Properties, left click Hardware, left click Device Manager. Left click Display adapters. Right click your adapter and left click Properties. This should give information as to whether the Display adapter is working properly. In Device Manager check other hardware that has a Question Mark"?" or Exclamation Mark"!". You may need to re-install some Drivers. Win 98 had Driver problems.
