Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
I recently purchased an Acer 5050 notebook with Vista home premium, lately I've had a problem with the trackpad/mouse where is will nonstop right click by itself making it basically unusable. I have reloaded the OS and tried XP and every time the problem seems to come back although oddly enough it is not right away, I've checked if it were certain software I was loading but even without loading any this problem still stated eventually. Any help would be greatly appreciated otherwise I fear I'll have to get rid of it.
Check to make sure that the right hand mouse key is not stuck down. When you press it down, does it feel the same as the Left Hand key? Could be caused by a piece of foreign material underneath/beside the key, or by something sticky getting down around the key. Try to clean the area under and around the key and make sure the key is not binding in the cover. It could be that there is a failure of the key, itself. You might want to try connecting another mouse (most computers have a connection for this), disconnecting the trackpad/mouse that is on the notebook. This should tell you if it is a problem with the trackpad/mouse, or something deeper.
Hope this solves your problem.
