If its only the left button thats not working and right is working, then its not locking the thing. Most probably its a small damge that has occured in the inside of the button that has made it not to work.

Try this, If you have an external mouse port, attach another mouse, reboot laptop. If mouse works, depends on operating system? Goto control panel, mouse icon and see if you might have diabled or changed mouse key to use the right key?

My laptop wont show any icons on the desktop and it wont do anything but show my background and mouse.


Hello, If your laptop shows something on your desktop before and suddenly it just stop showing things then right click on your desktop,under VIEW, click on SHOW DESKTOP ICON. If this does not work then your laptop has been infected with Virus.You need to get a good anti-virus to remove the virus or format your system. Regards

Mouse pad not working


A mouse pad is a thing you put your mouse on....

now what you are talking about is your touchpad.

Check these first:

  • some laptops have a switch that turns off the touch pad (usually a button right on the topside of the touchpad)
  • did you reboot completely? full shutdown, then power on?
  • goto the device manager (with a usb mouse of course) and find the touchpad... delete the device... then reboot again it should try and find the touchpad and ask for the driver, point it to the directory that you have the driver located.
good luck!

My wireless optical mouse is no longer working


You replaced the batteries. Okay. Did you install drivers for the mouse from a CD? Are you using Windows XP? Do you notice any change if you use the mouse on a darker surface as opposed to lighter surface? If the computer installed the drivers for you, then you might want to delete them in Device Manager (might be called something like HID-Compliant Mice. Single click on that entry, press the delete key. You might have to reboot your PC after that. From there you might have to unplug, then plug in the mouse again and you should notice the driver reinstalling. Give it a second and all should be good.

*Access the Device Manager by right-clicking on My Computer, select Properties, go to the Hardware tab and select Device Manager.

I need XP drivers for R20


Go to download.com and get Driver Magician Lite 3.44. Download it to a flash drive. Plug the drive into the computer and install DML. When it has run, save the non-Windows drivers back to the flash drive. Now you have all of the drivers from your computer that do not come with Windows. You can leave them on the flash drive or burn them to cd.

Left mouse button on my HP laser mouse has stopped working, any ideas on what i can do


Hi dear

there is a micro switch under this button. you can open your mouse and verify its malfunction by shorting its pins by tip of a screw driver carefuly and see if this works. then you can replace it. your can also shift this button to right button from control panel-->mouse-->button configuration temporarily.

Hi, the problem here is your mouse. You have a bad driver or one wasn't loaded. Most of the time, this is a problem with an "off brand" mouse which will only work if the propriety drivers are loaded. You will need to either load the proper driver or try another mouse. I would try another if someone can lend you one.

Another thing could be that one of the buttons is stuck down on the mouse and when you pass over a link it acts like a double click and launches the site or the program.

Another thing to note: Is this a replacement mouse? Meaning that the original mouse died and this was it's replacement without loading drivers but actually, using the old drivers from the old mouse could cause issues. -Sorry if that sounds confusing-

mice have this small tiny switch inside where it catch your click, if your mouse got too far on in other word it is too old, this is totally the main problem, that switch maybe brocken, and there is no other way to replace that small thing. if is new well use the warranty. if not is time to replce it.

Hi I have a samsung r20 laptop only 5 months old and the cd drive will not open it makes no noise and just suddenly stop working


It sounds like the drive has just stopped working. Since it's likely under warranty still, I would contact the manufacturer and have them replace the drive. If you have a cd stuck in the drive, you can use a paperclip in the small hole on the face of the drive to eject it and remove your CD.

Hi-

Are you getting the message when you visit a site on the internet or is it windows that popping the message up? might just be a pop-up for you to purchase things online, if you have the OS install disc then you dont have to worry since you can reinstall the operating system still, just ignore that message. keep me posted then on what will happen ok?

Pls rate as fixya if helpful, thanks!!

Cursor failure


Solution one:

it may be that your mouse is failing and you may need to to buy another, logitech,microsoft etc are very good mouse brands but cost around 30 - 80$. laser and wireless mouses work very well with desktop pc's. but however, if you do buy a new mouse and it does the same thing.


Solution two:

go to you mouse settings and disable "hide cursor while typing" this is a common mistake for mouse settings.

hope this helps you.
