Touchpad right/left click is not working properly on Satellite L50

Question: Touchpad right/left click is not working properly on Satellite L50

I have a brand new Satellite L50 CI3 laptop. However, it seem there is a fault with the left and right buttons on the touchpad.

The right click behaves like a left click i.e. it does not open a menu.

The left click cannot drag and drop, this includes when using scroll bars.

I've reinstalled everything but nothing has changed. Is this a common problem? Is this likely to a problem with the hardware or software?

Answer: Touchpad right/left click is not working properly on Satellite L50

Hi

On this virtual way it is not easy to say what is wrong there. Have you noticed this issue from he first day of usage?
I mean when you start your notebook for the first time it has original factory settings and everything should be OK.

If I understand you right there is some reaction when you use touchpad buttons so what you can try is to set all touchpad options to default settings.

My son has just purchased a Satellite P850 laptop to use for school work and gaming and has noticed a problem with the behaviour of the touchpad.

When using the touchpad, if you have one finger in the area of the touchpad used for mouse movement, and then try to click the right hand mouse button, the laptop behaves as if you clicked the left mouse button. If you click the right hand mouse button when you are not touching the mouse movement area, it behaves correctly.

We have tried changing various touchpad settings but have not been able to correct this problem. We have also updated the drivers for the touchpad to the latest version from the Synaptics website, but the problem still exists.

Is there a particular driver or setting that gives the correct behaviour of the right hand mouse button whilst still touching the touchpad with the other finger?

Sorry but I use touchpad too but in moment when I use one of the touchpad buttons I don?t touch touchpad area at this moment. I have two Toshiba notebooks and I tried to test this on both of them but none of them react on the way described in your posting.

As far as I know such behaviour can be result of ?confused? touchpad.
>... when you are not touching the mouse movement area, it behaves correctly.
In my opinion it is the right way to use touchpad correctly. I don?t think you can change anything using some other touchpad driver. Preinstalled driver is tested and I think the right one.

Hi,

I'm having trouble with my touchpad and I've tried everything I'd be gratefull if someone here helped me...

My problem is that I can't left click with my touchpad, the button doesn't work neither does taping, although the right button works.

I on the internet when suddently it starte failling and draging everything i clicked, then it just stoped working.

Also I went to the mouse options and switched to left handed touchpad, and when I click with the right button the left button works, but then the right click (that's now on the left) won't work neither does tapping.

Answer:Touchpad left click does not work on Satellite L650

So this means that touchpad hardware (touchpad buttons) are ok.
You should check if new touchpad software/driver installation would help you to get rid of this annoying issue.

In device manager you should firstly remove the touchpad device. Reboot the notebook and then install the touchpad driver once again.

Hi,

I have a problem with the left click of my Satellite Pro M40 (PSM46E). It has lost the 'click'.
Does anyone have some guidance for taking the top off to repair? What screws and how etc?

Many Thanks

Answer:Satellite Pro M40 - touchpad and left click repair guidance

Hi!

I think you will not get some guides because only an ASP (authorized service provider) has someone. These documents are not for the public.

I don?t know how to disassemble the notebook but this procedure is tricky. You must remove a lot of screws and parts like keyboard, LCD, upper cover and so far.

*You can try it and try but it?s your own risk*. I think this should do by a notebook technician.

By the way, I founded a maybe interesting article for you:

Hi,

The left click on my touchpad has stopped working. It works *very* occasionally but mostly it doesn't. It also freezes the screen if I try to click it too often (in a fit of temper usually ;) )

A USB mouse works fine, which is okay when I'm working on my desk but means I can no longer use my laptop on my lap! The tap click does work, but I don't like using it.

I reinstalled the drivers and that hasn't solved it. I turned the laptop upside down and gave it a good shake to get rid of any crumbs etc under the mouse and that hasn't solved it either.


Any other ideas?

Answer:Satellite C650D - left click on touchpad does not work

Hi

Could be possible that there is a mechanical problem with the touchpad button?
Pressing the button too often might lead to the system freezing because of the CPU stress and load.

In my opinion the touchpad board or the single button (if possible) should be replaced.

I'm baffled.  I can move the pointer all day long with the touchpad, but I cannot select anything by tapping nor with the left and right buttons.  According the BIOS, everything with the ultranav seems normal and active.  I cracked open the palmrest and checked the connection too... looks sat.  Additionally, the fingerprint reader is working fine.  I checked the ultranav in device manager... device appears to be working properly.  I'm running a virus scan right now to rule out any possibility of a conflict. The only positive outcome to this problem is I'm getting better at keyboard navigation  If anyone has any suggestions, please reply.  Thanks in advance!

Hi guys!

I have a USB mouse and my left click is not working properly, i think it's because of this driver conflict.
Do you know how to solve this problem?

Thanks for help!

Answer:Mouse: Left click not working properly due to driver conflict

Well the mouse that you use is a ps/2 - to be sure if is a driver issue ,use'it to a friend computer. Maybe is the mouse.Try to use a usb atacched mouse instead a ps/2 ,and if this won't work then it could be a chipset driver issue.Why chipset and not mouse driver? - because the input signal that you send when you use your mouse is go to a serial gate (strange that -becouse also the keyboard that you use could have the same trouble-but you don't specified), that go untill the processor,and elaborate the signal imput as an electric signal.You could uninstall the specified driver by clicking on the microsoft ps2 mouse and go to (right click) and select the column uninstall.To go on bios and search on harware if the usb ps/2 is enable it could be exagerate since you use the same keyboard.

Hi everybody, My left-click has stopped working on my Thinkpad T420s. I've tried all the methods of doing it on the laptop - by clicking the button below the touchpad, clicking the button above the touchpad, tapping the touchpad, and tapping the red trackball. None of these ways works. Not sure if it's a hardware or software problem, but if it's software, what might be the issue? Thanks.

Answer:Left mouse click not working on buttons or touchpad

Go into the BIOS menu, in under 'Config' -> 'Mouse + Keyboard'. Disable the Trackpad, save and exit. See whether the TrackPoint left click works. If it doesn't, then go into the BIOS again, disable the TrackPoint and Enable the TrackPad.Your problem maybe cause by either the TrackPad or TrackPoint left click button's circuitry short-circuiting.

Answer:Left Mouse Click on Laptop Touchpad stopped working

I assume you have checked your settings in Control Panel > Mouse Properties?

It will save a lot of time if you can determine whether this is a hardware problem or a software problem.
Try this: Download a copy of UBUNTU. Put this on a USB stick. Boot from the USB stick and choose to Run The Program (you do not need to install it on your hard drive). Then check to see if the mousepad works OK in UBUNTU. If it does then it is a Windows/Software problem. If it doesn't then it is a defective mousepad.

Hi guys, I am trying to maintain my doughter's school aptop but encountered something exceding my limited expertise. Since about 10 days the touchpad, buttons and the red thingie stopped working. I have read all the forum issues, uninstalled the drivers and re-installed new ones (first through the lenovo sulotion centre, then the synaptics generic version). About 6 times now. That didn't work. It says "component not present, not working correctly or divers not fully installed, error 24" (translation from Dutch, probably used some incorrect terms).Running windows 10 on this t420. All worked fine untill this happened. I saw that some new mouse drivers have been installed around the day of malfunction but can't find how or where to remove those (still getting used to this windows 10).Any suggestions? 

Answer:Lenovo Thinkpad T420 trackpad and touchpad right/left click stopped working

So far, there's just 2 of us with trackpoint / touchpad problems as a result of installing Windows 10.  My post:  https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-T400-T500-and-newer-T/T420-Win-10-Pro-Ultra-Nav-19-00-12-61-Tr... I've combed through this forum and have no one else reporting these same issues; most are reporting that left and right click buttons are working, but the middle button did not work.  In my case, it was the opposite; the middle button scrolled (albeit very choppy), and the left / right buttons were dead.for my Trackpoint.  It's not a hardware issue, as all buttons function as normal in Win 7, but upon installation of Win 10, the buttons do not work.  I went so far as to do a clean install of Win 10 to ensure there were no conflicts between Win 10 and any leftover Win 7 system files, only to end up with the same old left and right button problems. So until the Ultra Nav drivers to enable full functionality of trackpoint / touchpad device, the only solution is to use a physical mouse or revert back to your prior operating system.

So I have had a very... VERY... irritating problem with my Thinkpad. For the first 6 or so months I had the laptop it worked fine. Then, the left click on the touchpad was functioning like the right click (bringing up a menu).  I immediately disabled the touchpad and then used the trackpad right and left clicks which worked perfectly. After another 4 or 5 months, those buttons stopped working altogether. I could still use the touchpad to move the arrow, but I couldn't click on anything. I bought an external USB mouse and that worked fine for another 2 months. Then for a few weeks, it would work on and off. I'd have to wiggle it around in the USB ports to get the laptop to recognize it. (it had nothing to do with the ports... there were 3 of them and they all worked fine). Then it stopped working completely, AND, my laptop refuses to acknowledge ANY USB I plug in.  I have run out of options now. I can't even install anything, download any files from lenovo website. I can't do anything. Does anyone know if it is still salvageable? Has anyone had the same problem? The lenovo digitizer for tablets.... would that work for this thinkpad? (sorry... not as tech savvy as the rest of you) Thanks a bunch,Amanda

Dear all:

New to the forum.  Thanks in advance to anyone able to help.  I have two issues that seem to be related.  Today at some point I could not longer use my right or left click buttons on my laptop.  The touchpad still works in the sense that I can move my cursor and if I tap once on the touchpad (not the left/right buttons) then it will select a link.  There is no right-clicking capabilities on the touchpad itself.
I "attempted" to reinstall the driver.  Not sure if I was successful doing that, but seeing as how half of the touchpad functionality works, I'm not positive it's a driver issue.
After restarting my laptop I tried again to click on the left/right buttons and became frustrated and wanted to see if they were stuck, so I pressed down hard.  My laptop proceeded to shut off immediately.  Frustrated, I disassembled my laptop and checked out the touchpad sensor to see if I could spot something wrong.  Everything appeared to be in tact.  I reassembled and the laptop powered on, yeahh!!
I once again tried to press the buttons and nothing happening.  Again I pressed harder than normal and the laptop shut down.  I was going to disassemble it again however I got halfway before trying to power it on and the laptop powered on again.
My first issue is:  Why is my laptop suddenly shutting off when pressing hard on those buttons?
My second issue is:  How can I fix those button... Read more

Answer:Re: Left mouse button is not working properly on Satellite L

What do you mean by 'not working properly'? Is the button broken? Or not clicking? Or intermittently clicking by itself?

Have you checked for excess dust in the heatsink? What temperature is the CPU and GPU reaching?

Also, what is the model of your notebook?

Earlier today, seemingly unprovoked, my left click function stopped working on my touchpad--both the actual left button and the touchpad-tap feature. I've tried rolling back drivers, updating drivers and uninstalling the device and allowing it to reinstall itself and nothing. I've plugged in a USB mouse which works fine so I am able to easily enough try different things. Any suggestions? Any help at all would be appreciated. I've tried all the options that I've stumbled across searching on Google and nothing.

PS I'm running 32-bit Vista.

Edit: I just tried a system restore (it looks like I had a couple of Windows updates today). Still no luck.

I opened up the case very carefully and repositioned the power socket. When I put the machine back together neither right or left buttons or the touchpad would work. I never even touched anything around the touchpad.

I just lifted the top right hand corner of the case so that I could slot the power connecter back into position.

Hi

>I opened up the case very carefully and repositioned the power socket. When I put the machine back together neither right or left buttons or the touchpad would work. I never even touched anything around the touchpad.

I assume the touchpad has worked properly before you have opened and disassembled the notebook.
Is it right?

Well, I don?t know why the touchpad buttons don?t work but in my opinion you damaged/disconnected something during the disassemble procedure and therefore the buttons are not working now.

I would not recommend disassembling this notebook again because as you see many different parts can be damage or affected and therefore I recommend contacting an notebook technician who could check this and could solve your touchpad button problem.

I love my Satellite T110-107 but there are issues with the TouchPad.

1). The mouse cursor doesn't move at times. With this one I can get it to move by taking both hands away from the laptop for a moment.
2). The mouse cursor suddenly 'shoots' off to the right hand of the screen.

I've tried changing the touchpad sensitivity to both the minimum and the maximum levels, i've adjusted the 'Palm' sensitivity but nothing seems to help other than by making the sensitivity low which helps a little.

I've also noticed that when the laptop is on my lap, the problem is worse than if it's on a table.

I think that it's a problem with a build up of static on the case.

Any other ideas?.

After this you should test it again. Check also the touchpad settings again. There are a lot of settings to improve touchpad.

Answer:Touchpad is not working properly on Satellite A100

Hm, sounds like a really annoying and weird problem. Did you tried to reinstall your system or at least a linux from live-CD to check if the problem persists if you boot another operating systems?

If you didn?t tried, then it would be useful. Maybe it?s just a software problem. But if yes and the problem doesn?t want go away, then you have a huge problem and your next step will be to bring your machine to a authorized service partner. Why?

Because if yes, then you would probably have a hardware problem and you won?t be able to fix it on your own. Quite simple and easy explanation...

Hi there,

just a little question: when did they stopped working? Did you installed some software or some similar stuff like tools or something?
If not, then backup your data and make a system recovery. It should be a good way to find out, if it?s just an software problem or a serious hardware problem.

I suggest you to recover your system and then give a feedback if it worked, because if you already tried a new driver, you won?t have many choices.

Hi,

I spent a lot of time searching for the solution of my problem, but without effects.

My touchpad is not working properly. I mean, i can move the arrow and click on the screen, that is ok. But all other functions (volume, mailbox and other "virtual buttons" are not working)- so called "dual mode".
I got mouse connected to the USB.

If I disconnect it, there is no change - the touchpad works only in the basic mode.
If I change in touchpad settings for "always in Dual Mode when an outside device is plugged in" - the Dual mode and all the virtual buttons work.
But what should I do to make the dual mode work even if the mouse is not connected (to make the on/off button work)???

Thanks for all help,
M.

Answer:Satellite A200 touchpad function not working properly

I?m a little bit confused now and I don?t know what you want exactly?
You speak about the touchpad, dual mode, USB mouse, etc.

I don?t know what you mean with dual mode and maybe you should give us more informations about your OS.
And do you use the touchpad or USB mouse?

Can you post a screenshot or something else?

I don?t know if this solves your problem but have you tried to update the touchpad driver? You can find it on the Toshiba website.

(in englisch something like: The system was shut down because of a critical thermal event)
followed by "ACPI-Thermozone =SoC Board Sensor" and "_CRT = 3532K.

After some experiments I came to this temporary solution: In the BIOS settings I disabled the "Internal USB3.0 Controller" setting - then sleep works properly.

This error only occures when on the Pro-version of Windows, not with the original Bing-version.

Switching off the internal USB3.0 controller is not the ideal solution ... Is there a chance there is another solution? I also already tried upgrading to Bios-version 5.00, which didn't solve the problem.

my touch pad has started to act strange.

the left hand mouse button stopped working completely and the right hand one only worked intermittently, and whenever i clicked on tabs, whether it was firefox, IE, Safari, or anything in the menu bar at the bottom such as a folder or anything it would close it (no im not clicking the red X)

Then suddenly after a while it would all start working again. This has happened twice now.
Completely rebooting the system does nothing it just starts suddenly and stops suddenly but the periods for which it occurs seems to be getting longer.

Also the little touchpad icon in the corner with the cross through it decided to turn its self on a few days ago and i found out the touchpad had disabled on its own and figured out how to re-activate it.

I know its not a virus as ive run lots of different anti viruses on my system, and wondering if its time to take the computer back into the shop and get a replacement as ive only had it 4 months

Its really annoying as im a photographer and rely on this laptop for phot o editing. can someone please help :)
My model is the satellite P850-138

Answer:Satellite P850-138 - left hand touchpad button stopped working completely

Hi

From my personal opinion you should not replace this notebook until you did not try some workarounds.
First of all you don?t know if its software related issue.
The point is that if its software issue, you could solve this easily recovering the notebook using the HDD recovery option.

Please try to set the notebook back to factory settings using HDD recovery.
Press F8 -> choose Repair my Computer -> HDD recovery

If the HDD recovery would not be available there, press F12 and check if there is a HDD recovery option.
After system recovery, check the functionality of the touchpad and other notebook features.

Dear Support,
I have a Dell VOSTRO 3560 laptop that has an Elan Tech SmartPad touchpad. I like its responsiveness very much.
Unfortunately, I recently spilled a bit of coffee and some of that went under the touch pad left and right buttons. The buttons stopped functioning but the touch pad itself is still very good.
Even before the spill I rarely used the buttons. I always used the touch pad to tap to click and two finger tap to right-click.Strangely though, after the spill when the hardware buttons stopped working, the tapping on the touch pad also stopped working. I made sure that the touch pad still can do tap clicking by uninstalling the Dell TouchPad driver and reverting to the Microsoft Mouse PS2 driver. In that case I can use the tap to click feature but only for 1 finger tap. I do not get any other feature as the driver is the simple generic MS one.
My question is would it be possible to still use the Elan tech provided (Dell TouchPad) driver and somehow configure it to accept the tap to click and two finger tap to right-click? This in addition to all the remaining scrolling and gesture support that the driver implements? I tried all the Dell Touchpad settings applet but nothing changed. Perhaps a registry value setting in the section for the elantech?
What seems to be happening now is that the driver is doing some hardware diagnostics, determining that the hardware buttons left and right are not working, and consequently completely disabling left and right click comm... Read more

When using the touchpad on my new laptop the right click works fine when I am not moving the cursor
however when I have one finger on the touchpad such as my index finger and try to press the right button with my thumb it only ever registers as a left click.

This seems like an intentional function so I hope one of you has a simple solution.

Answer:Satellite P850-02C - right click is not working while touching touchpad

Hi

I think you will need to disable the option called Momentum.
This can be done in the Synaptics touchpad settings (control panel -> mouse -> Synaptics tab -> Settings button)

Expand the option called ?Pointing? and remove the mark from ?Momentum? point.

Hello community,
 
I've recently purchases a Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 540 and it worked just fine untill earlyer today (bought it around mid June).While i was browsing the internet, some how my touchpad developed a problem.It only registeres right click where ever i click.I've deleted the drivers, even tho they were the knewest ones, downloaded a fresh .exe and installed it after the reset and what not and it still has the same problem.If i turn off the touchpad in the ultranav software and enable only trackapad, the buttons work like they should, the large area in the touchpad registeres as the left click and the small area in the top right is registered as the right click. Tho i can't use the touchpad for navigation.
So clicking doesn't works, well neither does tapping. I can doubletap normaly, but i cannot tap and drag such as selecting a block of text.
Again, i've already tried a fresh install of ultranav drivers and it didn't work. The problem manifested itself during normal browsing, nothing was installed nor changed hardware vise. It litteraly changed in a second.It's a really strange problem and i have no idea how to solve it since the driver reinstall didn't work.
 
I appreciate any help, thanks.

Build 14316
So I came home after a long day to find that my laptop was registering my left clicks as right clicks for some reason.
In case you're wondering; nope I did not install anything recently unless you count a security update pushed by MS, but I doubt that's what caused this, because I installed that yesterday and the laptop was working fine until 30 minutes ago.
Solution?
Keep in mind that since your mouse/touchpad isn't working properly, you'll be working with the arrow + "enter" keys to do all of this.
Head into settings (win + i key combo) > Devices > Mouse & touchpad
This will open the Mouse options window, but to get to the options you need to scroll down to the last option on the left side of the window ( using the arrow keys obviously) which is "USB" then hit the "tab" key and you should jump to the actual Mouse options.
If done correctly the box under "select your primary button" should be highlighted. So now all you have to do is hit enter and select "left"
Bit of a crude explanation. Hope you can follow it, but if you have any questions go ahead and ask.
Just thought I should post this in case anyone else runs into this

This may be a silly question, but are the right and left clicks for the touchpad suppose to be silent? I've been using a wireless mouse since I got the laptop and only realized the touchpad right and left clicks are silent when my mouse broke and I had to start using the touchpad.  If not, does it mean something's broken, or is it something I can customize? And if it's customizable, how can I get the clicks back? I'm afraid I might press too hard or something and break the touchpad. I need those clicks. Help please.

Hi

How about deleting the USB ports/hubs and controllers from device manager?
Did you try that?

In device manager expands the USB controllers and delete all devices available there.
Furthermore you need to reboot the notebook to ensure all USB devices would be recognized again.

JameZ,
 
I have been experiencing the same problem on my X301 with my touchpad and built-in mouse left/right click buttons. 
 
All of sudden, my touchpad and built-in mouse left/right click buttons stop working.  Alt Cltr Del and clicking on Cancel temporarily returns functionality in the left mouse button and left touchpad button, but not the right buttons on the built-in mouse or touchpad. 
 
I tried to roll-back the driver, but it did not fix the problem.  I also tried an older driver, and no go. 
 
I look forward to the release of the new driver.

Answer:X301 - TouchPad right/left click issue

@btbruner,In regards to your issue, I've read through your PM to me as well. However your issue seems to be different as the drivers for yours are only applicable for the X300 and X301. Also the TouchPad for the X301 has 2 types as well which is the Synaptics one and the Alps TouchPad. Since based on your PM, the TouchPad for your X301 is Alps. Did you have this issue when you first got your X301? Is there any 3rd party application which you have installed after you factory restore the machine such as anti-virus programs?//JameZ

Hi everyone, I just bought a Thinkpad Yoga 14 S3 and I have an issue with the ALPS touchpad.Whenever I click the touchpad (physical click not tap) with a finger on it, it opens the right click menu...This is very annoying as I always use two finger, one for moving the cursor around and one for clicking.I have the lastest touchpad driver (8.216.1616.137) and I am on windows 10. I tried any possible solution I could think of with no luck:- Went through the touchpad option thousand times.- Tried changing entries in Regedit (change Enable2Click to 0), and what it did was that is now does not recognize it as a right click, but not as a left click either. When I click with the finger on the touchpad, the cursor now jumps but does not register any click. Any ideas on how to solve the issue?Thanks in advancePierre

Answer:Problem with left click on ALPS Touchpad

I have exactly the same problem on my Thinkpad E460! This almost makes my laptop unusable. Please update this driver asap Lenovo. P.S. If you uninstall the ALPS driver and use the standard Windows PS2/Mouse driver, this problem does not occur. However there is no setting (at least I did not find one) which allows you to disable 2 click. Also scrolling and gestures do not work with the Windows PS2/Mouse driver.

A really strange behavour happens on my E460: when I use touchpad to left click on a file, it becomes a mouse hold, which means if I move the mouse pointer at this moment, the file is dragged. I can only release the mouse hold by doing a mouse click again. It really makes a lot of trouble as it causes me to accidentally drag some files. Also, when I am using excel, when I click on a cell, due to the mouse click becomes a mouse hold, so when I move the mouse pointer, it begins to highlight a range of cells. I tried to updated the BIOS, and also update to the latest touchpad driver, but none of them solve the problem. I can only solve the problem by removing the touchpad driver, but this cause all the useful features (e.g. scrolling by using 2 fingers) disappear. Also, it causes another problem. When I'm using excel, I can't double click a cell to edit the text inside. I need to triple click to edit, which is very strange. So removing the touchpad driver can solve one problem but bringing two other problems........ Anyone had such kind of issues too? Any way to solve it? Thanks.

I have a brand-new EliteBook 840 running Windows 10. The left touchpad button sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. It's like this: If I click a second time (or a third time) with the left button, without having moved the cursor (not double click, but two separated clicks), then the computer doesn't respond to the click. If I click by tapping on the touchpad area (instead of pressing the button) then everything is fine. But I don't like tapping! If I click with an external mouse connected via USB then everything is fine. If I move the cursor and then click, then it works. The problem is very annoying because each time the computer doesn't respond to the clicks, I have to move the cursor and then click again.

Hello everyone,
so I own a dv6tqe-7000, and I've had a strange problem. Sporadically, the left/primary click function on my touchpad would disable. I can still use the touchpad itself and the right click function but left clicking or tapping to click will not work.

I switched the functions in Synaptics (Right click to primary click, and left click to secondary click), and the left click ended working but the primary function still did not respond (ie. Right click didn't work). So I don't think it's a hardware issue.

There are some 'fixes' to this as I've discovered:
- Restart the laptop
- Kill explorer.exe function and re-open it
- Hold both mouse buttons down and move the touchpad around for half a minute. I don't know how or why this works but I read it on a post. Only tested one time though so don't read too much into it.

I've tried removing the battery and replugging it in. I'm also on the latest driver on Synaptics (I updated to the new one after it first occured, still happens). I am also on the latest BIOS. What is the problem and what could I do? Could it be the drivers (Should I uninstall Synaptics/touchpad in Device manager and do a clean install)?

I've found a couple people with the same problem but have yet to find a solution. Again, it is a sporadic event and honestly doesn't occur too often. Any advice would be appreciated.

Whenever I use my touchpad and left click, it sometimes right clicks. To temporarily remedy this, I would just right click to make it stop. I already resetted my laptop to its factory settings because of it. Before I factory resetted it, it would constantly happen all the time and also the scrolling would not work and it would select stuff on the desktop screen by itself. However, it is still happening. I did all the lenovo driver updates that Thinkvantage System update tells me to do. It is happening less frequently after I resetted it to factory settings but it is still annoying. This problem somehow occurs much less frequently if I use an external mouse.

When you say delayed do you mean that the left mouse button does not work for a certain period of time? What happens if you try to push the button before this delayed period is up? A good place to start is to possibly try reinstalling the synaptic software and see where you get from there.... What is the specific model of your pc?

Alright, so I have a relatively new Asus F3L series notebook, about eight months old now, running Windows XP (although my OS isn't really pertinent to the issue). Over the past few months, the left click button on its touchpad has been slowly dying, some days not working at all. It's definitely a hardware issue as flipping the laptop over and banging on its bottom a few times usually gets it to work again, but doing this obviously worries me (I don't want to break anything else, but nothing else works). The Asus tech support guys won't help me at all, giving me the sole option of "Return the laptop and lose all computer access for the next few months," which isn't going to happen. What could be causing this problem? Would removing and re-inserting the touchpad help at all, and if so, how would I go about it without breaking something?I thought that I'd dealt with every hardware issue under the sun, but this is a new one to me.Thankyou in advance.

Hi there, the left and right click on the touchpad of my (second hand) x220 doesn't work. Although it recognized all multitouch gestures and and controlling the mouse is just fine.  The trackpoint and the left and right buttons of the trackpoint work fine, too. It just doesn't react when I click on the left and right buttons of the touchpad.   I ordered another touchpad (from the same reseller) and replaced the old one. Yet the "new" one doesn't work either.  How likely do you think that both palmrest of the same reseller have the same problem? Do you think there's another reason (besides the palmrest) that could be responsible for my problem? Thanks in advance for your answersRegards 

Answer:X220: Left and right click on Touchpad doesn't work

Hi, letter
 
I would first try updating the driver, as this could be part of the issue. I would also recommend updating to the latest version of the base Synaptics driver, which can be found here. Synaptics is the company that makes the UltraNav software normally seen on Lenovo's machines, so there shouldn't be any loss of functionality or anything. If you can, install that and see if any change is made.
 
Hope it helps,
Adam

Dell Inspiron 17R 5737: A few months ago the left click button of the touchpad got deflated from bottom left edge and the click got sticky, if I clicked on right top edge, it worked sometimes but mostly left click stayed pressed.
I opened the laptop and found that the small plastic attached to the button, which inflates it back is broken. I tried to fix it using glue but it didn't work. As it was part of the whole Palmrest thus I ordered a new palmrest. After receiving the new palmrest, I detached the buttons circuit and touchpad circuit from the old palmrest and attached it to the new palmrest.
Strangely now, the left click button is partially sticky, if I click on the left half of the button it sticks, if I click on the right half of the button it works properly 90% of the time. The button is no more deflated and it inflates and deflates properly on clicking, there is nothing broken in the new palmrest, the clicking sound is fine, there is just 1 button for left click then how it is working differently for left half and right half, that I am not able to understand.
Next step can be to order new buttons circuit but I am not sure if this will fix the problem.
This is my work laptop thus it is effecting my work and time quite badly, any help will be highly appreciated.

Hello All,I am not sure what changed recently, but when I click on the left button on the touchpad, it opens the menu options that should show up when you right click. The right click button functions as normal. (So basically, at the moment, both the left and the right click do the same thing.) For example, if I have the desktop/home screen in focus and I click on the left mouse button, I get the standard menu: View, Sort By, Refresh Paste etc.I tried going to settings and changing the 'Primary' button option and also tried the 'Switch Primary/Secondary Button' option; did not help. I also tried to look for updated drivers; no luck.Please note: I am NOT using an external mouse. I am talking about the one long button at the bottom of the trackpad.Any suggestions?

ive had this laptop for about 8 months now,  and ive have started to get problems with my left click on my touchpad. restarting the laptop does fix the problem for the meantime but this problem will occur again after a few hours. ive tried researching for many hours about this problem and i have yet to find a solution, ive been told to reunistall and install my synthentic touchpad driver which i did. this did not solve the problem, i also updated my BIOS which also didnt fix the problem, these were the 2 things i was told to do. i have about 1 month of warranty left so im thinking of getting it repaired? this seems to be a very common problem but with no solution on how to fix it. hopefully somebody could help me out! much appreicated

Thinkpad Yoga:Lately the click function doesn't work fine, only 20% of the time it actually reacts.The left and right click section do not work at all anymore.The tap for left and two finger tap for right do work.An external mouse works perfect. ThinkPad UltraNav Driver 18.0.7.40 installed 5-may-2014... that's about the time the issue started!!I reinstalled (via control panel, etc) the older version 18.0.7.34 which was on the system since 7 april 2014, reboot and the touchpad does work again. The left and right click section also ok again. So there seems to be an issue with ThinkPad UltraNav Driver 18.0.7.40 on the Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga .... ???

Hi,I've a Lenovo T61 laptop. All of a sudden the left click has stopped responding on trackpoint, touchpad & mouse. Through none of the options the left click is working. Tried googling out but found no workable solutions. Please help. Laptop OS is Windows Vista 32-BIT. Thanks & Regards,Gangadhar 

Answer:Issue with left click on trackpoint, touchpad and mouse - Lenovo T61

Hello,
 
A few things to try:
 
?  Create a new user account, login using that and see if the problem still occurs.  If the problem goes away, then it is due to software running under your user account.
?  Start Windows in Safe Mode and see if the problem still occurs.  If the problem goes away, it was due to an application which runs on startup.
?  Boot the computer from a Linux Live CD/USB and see if the problem still occurs.  If it does, then the problem is not due to the operating system and you are dealing with a hardware issue.
 
In the case of the latter, the usual fix would be to replace the keyboard.
 
Regards,

Hi, I'm having a problem with the left-click on my Z580. The trackpad and right-click continue working fine, but the left-click (and single tap on touchpad, equivalent of left-clicking) suddenly stop working completely. I think both times it happened I was try to highlight some text, so holding the left-click down, so I'm not sure whether that has anything to do with it. It happened yesterday, and again today. Restarting the laptop fixed it both times, but it worries me! Do you think it's a physical problem with the touchpad, or a driver issue? I only bought the laptop in summer  2013, but it was a display model so I guess the touchpad has had more use than most of this age. Still, I thought Lenovos were pretty reliable so hadn't expected a problem so soon. I'm not very knowledgably with the technicalities of computers (but can follow instructions!) so any help would be hugely appreciated as I'm not sure where to start trying to diagnose the issue.

Hi, After installing Windows 10, I began to have issues with the left click button on the touchpad.  The left click suddenly stops functioning, and it does not work again until I reboot the computer.  It is not a hardware issue as I have tested this by changing the functionality between the left and right buttons, at which point the left button works again.  My sense is there is a bug in the touchpad's driver software under the new operating system.  I have tried to uninstall and reinstall drivers, I have scanned to ensure the computer does not have a virus, and I have reinstalled the operating system.  None of this solves the issue.  The left mouse click on the touchpad will still suddenly stop working at some period of time after using the computer (generally after leaving the computer idle and later resuming use).   Any ideas, thoughts, suggestions are welcome.  Is it a bug in the driver software for the touchpad that needs to be fixed for Windows 10?   Thanks you!

I have a Dell XPS 14z which is about 11 months old. I have Windows 7. I am having trouble with left-clicking.

I first noticed the problem while working in AutoCAD. I suddenly stopped being able to use my left-click button at all. I hit ctrl+S to save so that I could reboot, hoping the button would resume functioning when I restarted. Strangely left-click immediately started working again. Initially I only had this problem in AutoCAD. The semester ended and I stopped using AutoCAD. I was assuming that there was a problem with that program and planned to reinstall before the next (this) semester of school.

Then, I started experiencing left-click problems while browsing the internet, I use Chrome. I do tend to open a lot of tabs at a time when I am running a search, don't know if this is relevant. Left-click sometimes would randomly stop working, sometimes it would just lag - click..... wait.... action long after expected, sometimes it would randomly also start working again. Sometimes when using the left button to drag a scroll bar in chrome it would "stick" (the function would stay on, the button did not appear to be physically stuck and this happens with mouse or touchpad) and moving the cursor away from the scroll bar would navigate the page up and down. The non functional left-click problem would also occur in Windows, when I would say attempt to go into device manager to see what was up.

Answer:Left-click misbehaving both on touchpad and wired optical mouse

Hello and welcome JM looks like you have tried just about everything maybe you are looking at a warranty job my friend because I was going to suggest cleaning the mouse but if the same thing happens with the touch pad then that isn't much help.

If most of the drivers or whatever software fixes have not worked then just maybe a problem with the internal connections as you say a hardware issue, it only takes one dry joint or a dodgy cap to throw the whole thing out.

By the way you haven't spilt anything on the machine or dropped it or maybe a voltage spike if you have been using the mains adaptor without a surge protection device?

Just received my U510 a couple of days ago and the touchpad is driving me crazy.  My pointer moves around in the left/right click areas of the touchpad which is causes me to continually make the wrong selections because of a slight movement made by my finger in the click area. I spoke with both hardware and software support at Lenovo and it appears that this is the way it is.  They uninstalled and reinstalled drivers and tried to make various adjustments, that I had already tried, without success.  I had first level support and they wanted to reinstall the O/S thinking that this was a hardware issue.  I tried to explain that I just simply want my right click to be a right click only and my left click to be a left click only in those areas of the touchpad wihtout my cursor/pointer moving while my finger is in those areas.  They did not understand. I am running on Windows 8.1 and have the latest Windows 8 Synaptic driver 16.2.21.3.  Lenovo tried to install the driver for 8.1 but it will not install.  I don't think it will make a difference anyway. This really isn't a problem just a major annoyance.   Has anyone tried contacting Synaptics about this?  Any suggestions? Thanks---

This post is for issues with my Lenovo g500s ELAN Touchpad: First, I am unable to move the pointer with my trackpad when I have keys pressed. I have tried disabling the palmcheck settings on the ELAN driver settings, to no avail. Uninstalling the ELAN drivers reduces it a little but there is still a strange lag in movement when I have more than one key pressed and try to move the pointer.Secondly, there is an issue with my left click when in the same situation. If I have a key pressed, I am unable to left click. Sometimes it will let me, but only after 9-10 seconds. The difference between this and the first issue is that this issue is NOT affected by disabling ELAN touchpad Drivers.My Drivers are all up to date, currently running the driver: ETDWare PS/2-X64 11.4.25.1_WHQL SPECS:Spoiler (Highlight to read)Operating SystemWindows 8.1 64-bitCPUIntel Core i3/i5/i7 @ 2.40GHz 40 °CIvy Bridge 22nm TechnologyRAM4.00GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz (11-11-11-28)MotherboardLENOVO INVALID (U3E1) 43 °CGraphicsGeneric PnP Monitor ([email protected])Intel HD Graphics (Lenovo)Storage465GB Seagate ST500LM000-1EJ162 (SATA) 32 °COptical DrivesMAT**bleep**A DVD-RAM UJ8C2AudioConexant SmartAudio HDOperating SystemWindows 8.1 64-bit  Operating SystemWindows 8.1 64-bitCPUIntel Core i3/i5/i7 @ 2.40GHz 40 °CIvy Bridge 22nm TechnologyRAM4.00GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz (11-11-11-28)MotherboardLENOVO INVALID (U3E1) 43 °CGraphicsGeneric PnP Monitor ([email protected])Intel HD G...

I got my y510p the other day and I like pretty much everything about it except the touch pad. It seems that if you are going to click something with the right or left click buttons on the bottom of the pad your mouse cursor will jump away from what you were going to click on because the touchpad still tracks movement in the area of the buttons. It's really annoying and I can't believe an engineer would let a touchpad release in a laptop that behaves in this way. I am really suprised someone in product testing didn't find this critical flaw in the touchpad design before it was released. I have tried looking in the settings and all I found was a sensitivity adjustment. I have lowered the sensitivity and it helped a bit but the issue is still there. I also tried installing the Asus touchpad driver as recommended in another thread to give more features but it is actually worse because you loose the sensitivity adjustment with that one installed.  Is there anything I can do or do I just have to deal with the flawed design of the touchpad? 

Answer:Make y510p touchpad not register movements over top of the right and left click buttons?

I found some sticky back anti slip material sheets on Amazon. I am thinking about ordering it and cutting it out to fit on the bottom of the touchpad. That will give a nice little grip for the buttons which I didn't have before and will hopefully block out the registration of my finger on the buttons when I click down. I will try this if there isn't a software fix for the issue.

Answer:Lenovo Yoga Touchpad Left/Right Click Hardware Button Sensitivity

I would suspect that the hard buttons of the touchpad cannot be changed as a mechanical attribute of the hardware. However, I might suggest that the hard buttons of the touchpad may not have to be used very often given the existence of touch alternatives. For example, I'm sure you use the left-click tap gesture often, but also a right-click gesture of simply tapping two fingers anywhere at once may be used instead of having to press the hard button from the bottom-left corner. Additionally, dragging may be accomplished with a double-tap and hold gesture on the touchpad. For instance, to move a window on the desktop, simply double-tap the window title bar but keep a finger down after the second tap. From there objects may be moved/dragged as if a physical button was held. So perhaps with the touch-only drag and right-click gestures you may rely less on use of the hard buttons, and save some strain on your fingers..?
