I have found that the best way to adjust your mouse settings is to create a control panel in your bottom toolbar scroll to the bottom of your screen right click you will see an array of options select the toolbar option then select desktop then you will see the desktop in the bottom toolbar select the 2 >>arrow heads then all control panel items then select mouse this is in WINDOWS 7 then click on the >> all control panel items scroll to mouse in the buttons tab you will see the defaults left button right button and middle wheel click you might have to set the left click button again in XP you will have to select the new toolbar option once you have that a browse option select my computer then control panel then a control panel option will be in the bottom toolbar . Or disconnect the mouse from your computer restart.
You need to re-open your laptop cover to check whether the wire contacts of the touchpad connected to the motherboard of your laptop are all OK.
Also, this kind of issues occur if something like water or oil is on the touchpad causing it to not behave as expected (eg: scrolling one pos at a time instead of all the way down ). Also if your fingers are sweaty this can occur.
Now, for the right-left clickable buttons of the touchpad, you probably need to check again if anything's broken on the inside of the laptop.
I guess you mean the left touchpad button. With my 900 that happened after only 4months extensive use. Reasons could be dirt in the microswitch under the button or broken contact of switch on MB. To exclude software problem, switch buttons in touchpad driver panel and see if the right button function is not working when pushing the left button. If you don't want to open your eeepc to clean or fix, activate the tapping option in the touchpad options and asign a "2taps with one finger" to a left mouse click for replacement. I work with that for almost 2 yrs now without ever using the left button again. Should you just switch buttons, be prepared that the right button might leave you too in a while.
Will your laptop work properly with an external mouse? If so, check your touchpad settings in "Control Panel" by selecting "Mouse". Here you can reassign your Buttons. Try setting your Right Button function to "Double Click". If the "Double Click" function works on your Right Button then chances are you have a problem with your Touchpad Assembly which means it will have to be replaced. Dell refers to it as a "Palmrest" which they will replace if still under warranty.
Go to acer website and download that model manual, make sure you have ADOBE READER on this machine..If your pointer is not working then you need to download the touchpad driver or if you are using a mouse then it may be a bad one.
Unless your left mouse button has been severely damaged, it is unlikely that a loose button is the cause of your problem. More likely, it is your touchpad. Chances are your touchpad is set to click when tapped. Oversensitive touchpads can click randomly when you're dragging your finger across the touchpad.
To test this, position your cursor over a link (or other button) but don't press the left mouse button. Instead, lightly tap the touchpad itself. If the link or button is clicked, go to your Control Panel and adjust the Mouse options so your touchpad no longer clicks when tapped. It's usually a setting titled "tap to click" or something along those lines.
Go to your "Device Manager" (Right click on ‘My Computer', select 'Properties', click the 'Hardware' tab, click the 'Device Manager' button. Click the "Pointer/Navigator"). If there is some kind of a "Warning" icon superimposed on the "Pointer/Navigator" icon there is your problem! Uninstall the DRIVERS for THAT DEVICE only. Click on the faulty devise and hit the remove button, follow the instructions given by the program. Shutdown, restart, the device will automatically reinstall by the "Found New Hardware" program.").
Or it could be dirt or soda.
