SOURCE: the left click on my sony vaio nr series notebook

Underneath the button covers for the mouse, are miniature momentary contact switches.

View the 6th photo down on this page,
http://computer.howstuffworks.com/mouse2.htm

The two square shaped objects with the shiny metal covers, and a Black round dot in the center, are the miniature momentary contact switches, that I'm referring to.

(One on each side. The one on the right, has two silver colored Resistors to the left of it. The one on the left, has an Orange colored Solid Capacitor to the left of it. They are both right below an Integrated Circuit. {IC}

[Granted this is a Ball Mouse, but it shows the miniature momentary contact switches used for all mouse]

If you popped that square metal cover off, you would find that the Black round dot is a plastic piece. This is the part that moves up and down, as you press each individual mouse button. Under that Black plastic part is a small, thin, part made of spring steel.

It works like a diaphragm. It is concave shaped, with the curve going up. As you press the mouse button down, the Black plastic part moves down, which in turn flattens out that concave spring steel piece.

The outside edges of the metal spring steel 'diaphragm', touch a Negative connection.
When the center of the spring steel diaphragm flattens out, it's center touches a Positive contact.
The miniature switch now makes a complete circuit. It's a Momentary Switch, in that once you release the pressure off of the mouse button, the switch is Off.

All the things you wanted to know, huh? lol!

Point of this breakdown, is that if the spring steel diaphragm receives too much pressure over an extended period, it loses it's
'spring'.

Way to fix it?
Replace that miniature momentary contact switch.
Logical solution?
Replace the mouse.

SOURCE: sony vaio mouse won't go left

Computer mouse are inexpensive. And can be found in any office supply store, even Wal-mart.
You can use the HP or any generic 2 button, scroll ,USB or PS2 mouse on this unit.

Your Sony mouse is bad.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Your Sony Vaio laptop comes with a restore section pre-installed that allows you to revert the operating system's settings to an earlier date.

The restore feature is useful if your Sony Vaio has been infected with a virus or some of your hardware is no longer working properly.

If you don't want to search through all of your various settings and registry values to locate the source of the problem, an easier solution is to simply load a restore point.

Close any programs that are currently running.
Open the "Start" menu and click "All Programs."

Select "VAIO Recovery Wizard." Click "Next."
Navigate to "Media and Recovery Options" and click "Proceed with System Recovery."

Select "Next."
Click "Recovery Options," and then choose "Custom Recovery."

Click "Next," and then select "Windows System Restore."
Click "Next" and then "OK."

Click the left and right arrow buttons above the calendar to navigate to a restore point you want to load.
Click the specific restore date you want to use for your Sony Vaio laptop.

Click "Next," and then click "Confirm Restore Point Selection."

I have a Sony Vaio VGN CS290. Just a few minutes ago the touchpad and the buttons were working properly. However, I suddenly cannot make a click/double click from both the touchpad and the left click...


This sounds like a hardware issue, however, you can do some troubleshooting steps:

First solution: Go to the mouse settings.
On the "buttons" tab, go to the "double click speed" area.
Slide the cursor all the way to fast and try clicking on the folder with your left mouse button,
If it opens easily, your button should be working.
If not, try sliding cursor all the way to slow.

Second solution: Download the latest touchpad driver from Sony Vaio website support drivers page and type in your laptop serial number and try to reinstall the touchpad pointer driver and restart the system.

Third solution: please perform a system restore, how to perform a system restore press and hold down the windows key on your keyboard and press the R key after that a window will pop up, in that command box type "rstrui" without colon and you will see the system restore page click next and you will see several dates, now select the date where your computer was working fine and then click next and proceed with the system restore, please note that system restore will not delete any data or files but it will uninstall only the programmes which you have installed on or after the date which you have selected to restore.

If none of these works try connecting a mouse and see if all the clicks are working fine and if that is working fine then it has something to do with the hardware of the click button of the laptop I would suggest you to take it to the service center and get it replaced it won't cost much.

Left button of vaio mouse does not work anymore. any idea how to fix it? thank you!


Try the mouse in a different computer.
If it works, it's the "settings" for the mouse in your copy of Windows that have changed, i.e., pushing the LEFT mouse button is *NOT* "associated" with any specific "action".

Or, shutdown your computer.
Disconnect the mouse from the computer.
Flip the mouse over.
Look for any screws holding the mouse together.
If you find some, undo the screws, and split the mouse apart.
Inspect the mechanism that "clicks" when you push the LEFT mouse-button.
Remove any dirt/dust.
Reassemble the mouse.
Reconnect it to your computer.
Try it.

If it still does not work, try the mouse in a different computer.
If it still does not work, responsibly recycle it, and buy a new mouse.

The left button of Mousepad(one on laptop, but not touch pad) is often not working and sometimes need to press hard. Model VGN-NR38M, Sony Vaio. please help


I had the same problem . The micro switch needs to be replaced . All push button micro switches have a certain amount of "clicks" before they loose ability to make a good contact . Your left click switch has exceeded its life and can no longer make a clean contact without more pressure . Eventually the spring in the switch will fail thus stick permanantly.You will have to take it to an authorized Sony Service center or maybe an office machine service department might have the replacment . I fixed my own with an old mouse microswitch .
