HP Mini Touch Pad Right Mouse button auto click...
Any time I use the touchpad, at random it will generate by itself a right mouse button click, resulting in popping up a pop-up menu that is supposed to show up when you click the right mouse button. The problem is that I am only moving my finger over the mouse pad and not really clicking on anythig...
Please HELP! Do I need a new HP Mini, can I replace the touch pad or is it a driver issue? Or maybe some malware or virus...

It would appear that the left/right touch pad buttons have failed. You will have 3 options at this point in time. 1) Use an external wireless mouse such as a Logitech Wireless Mouse M505 for roughly $39.99 2) Use alternative features on the laptop. Left click is typically simulated by tapping or double tapping the touch pad itself and right click can be simulated, in most cases, by single tapping the icon and pressing the pop-up menu button, typically located between the right alt and ctrl buttons. 3) Search for a replacement component online and replace the component. Touch pad replacement will require you to remove all casing screws from the laptop and then remove the case. You will then expose the screws and cabling for the touch pad. I can not give more detailed instructions as this varies per laptop model.
Tap the orange light quickly two times to enable the touchpad. Touch the same spot twice to disable the touchpad. To see the instructions from HP type "mouse" into the Search Programs and Files. Click on "Change mouse settings" and click Device Settings. Click on "Settings" and click "Touch pad disable zone". I was delighted to have found this as I had been restarting the computer manually to enable the touchpad. Shame on HP. The instructions for this simple problem are difficult to locate for the average user. They can do better.
Hi! try to check if there is on/off button for touchpad, normally there is a touchpad indicator light that you can check if it is on or not. If this doesnt work, use an external mouse and then try to uninstall and reinstall the driver of your touchpad in device manager:for xp:start->right click on my computer->properties->hardware->device manager->mice and other pointing devices. Uninstall it and then reinstall the driver. you can download the touchpad driver from the hp support website(support.hp.com) if its missing. Hope this will help...Cheers!!!
Hi there. The touchpad itself is easy to clean but if the liquid has got into the left and right click keys you may have a problem, a warm soapy partially dry cloth will take the residue off the touchpad but the soda may have got to the circuit board causing it to be slow to react. To clean the left and right keys and under the touchpad you have to take the laptop apart, remove the keyboard and the front cover and clean under that where you can get under the left/right click keys and the ribbon cable of the touchpad. This type of job is not for the novice and i would advise having a technician do it whether it's in or out off warranty, preferably Dell themselves. Other than that the best option would be to buy a wireless or wired mini mouse which are much easier to use than the touchpad itself.
Please post back with the results and more help if needed, good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
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.
