The touchpad on my HP Envy 15 notebook makes a loud clicking noise on the left side. Help.

As it says in the question, my touchpad makes a really loud clicking noise when I push down on the left side. It feels loose, so I have to push down and it clicks loudly, then I have to push further for it to actually select whatever it is I want to select. I want to know if I can fix this myself somehow, or if I'll have to send it in to be fixed.

You're lucky.  My HP 17 touchpad clicks loudly using both buttons, by design.  There is no fix.  It is in the touchpad "design".  No idea why this is considered a feature.  In quiet enviroments, like libraries, people have actually asked me to "stop doing that".  The only fix is to double tap the touchpad itself to select/move.  No noise but not easy to habituate.  The only loss is there is no silent option for the "right click" button.   It still clikcs loudly away.  You could send it in for repair, but HP will send one on which both buttons will click.  A few Dell models have the same design flaw.

So I had the same problem. And if you are like me then your warranty is up and you do not have the money to send it in for a possible fix. Or your in schol like me as well and cant go without the computer for even a single class.

I was able to find a solution that is rather simple and a bit ghetto but it works. If you are comfortable taking the bottom off the computer and getting into the insides of the system all you would have to do is wedge a folded up peice of paper between the trackpad and the retention spring on the side that is doing the clicking.

Yes it did fix the annoying double click sound it was making but it also made clicking a bit firmer than before so its not as easy to press down but id much rather it be quiet.

I dont have any pictures because I didnt realize how common this problems was till after i fixed it and someone else told me they had the same issue.

Hey guys is it the same problem with mine (is it normal with the hp or is there a fault with mine) basically when I click the left side of the touch pad it seems to go further down than the right side and make a louder noise as if I push the right side it seems alot smoother. I got 2 years warranty, should I use it till then (then change it) or change it now or not bother because they are all the same lol. Thanks in advance.
