Left click not working

  1. My Product: HP Pavilion dm1-4027ea Entertainment Notebook PC
  2. Windows 7 32-bit
  3. Error: After recent windows update my left click button has stopped working. I have tried updating the synaptics driver, reinstalling the synaptics software, revcovering the laptop to a restoration point but nothing has worked. I can use the mouse via tapping when I uncheck 'button' on synaptics software but buttons don't work at all. The right click works fine. I am rather puzzled as this stopped working all of a sudden, then started working then stopped again. 
  4. Changes to the system: Windows update

Any help would be appriciated. 

 

Thanks

Re: Left click not working

Hi

 

You have a couple of options as I see it please find the Web link given below might help you to resolve the issue.

 

 

Using and Configuring the Touch Pad

 

 

Even after this is the Left click does not work you might have to get the part replaced.


If your notebook is still under warranty, contact HP and arrange to have the part replaced.

If you are out of warranty and would like a guide on replacing the part yourself, please let me know.

Re: Left click not working

Hi, 

 

I left the laptop over night and this morning the pad seems to be working perfectly, it tends to do this. This makes me think it is not a hardware issue. Could it be a malware?

 

Thanks
