    I forgot to add that I do not have access to a tri-wing screwdriver.

    If somebody could tell me where to get one, then that would be the best help I could get. I live in Alberta

    Wait... I think I know exactly the kind of 'dirt' that is under the button.

    *Sweatdrop* I put it in the same pocket as my pencils, with the left side face up Heheh...

The problem your describing is dirt under the button.
Any local store has them, home hardware, walmart,zellers,etc.
They run fairly cheap, probally around 5 dollars.
Try getting a hold of a screwdriver, and cleaning the inside of dirt.
PS this would usually happen when you play with dirty fingers.
So my advice, wash up! ;)

I had the same issue. You can use the on screen volume buttons on screen to stop issue and don't use the physical buttons anymore. Watch out about a month after the volume problem started all physical buttons on my DXN7120 stopped working. There are a few reports of this online, I have not found a fix yet.

Are you connected to the Internet? If you are connected by a routor, disconnect it and try again. If the Nintendo Wi-fi USB connector, use the registering tool, and deny access.
If it didn't work, I'm not sure. You may have found where all the Wii files are!

FIXED, I managed to fix my copperhead last night after its been sat under my desk for the past 4 months with doubleclick problem. I peeled off the lower slider foot, removed the QC sticker off the screw, removed the screw and took the top off the mouse. inside, under the faulty button (left mouse button for me) there is a little black box with a small thin white button on top. i very carefully lifted the black box slightly off its connection with a small flathead screwdriver then pushed it back down again. i did this with the mouse plugged in to usb blue lights on and everything. it stopped double clicking instantly, hope this works for anyone else. let me know.

I can now use my razer again. wooooooooooooooooo
