Was using laptop and all of a sudden my left button and the double tapping on the actual touchpad stopped working. Have restarted it and done a system restore but the problem still hasn't been resolved. Had planned in the near future to restore it to factory settings which on my old laptop solved allot of hardware problems but when i did it this time the problem still hasn't been resolved. I've had to attatch an external mouse to use it. I've also gone into the touchpad options and swithed it to left handed control and using the right button does work as the left would but couldn't and wouldn't want to use it other than as a temporary solutuion. From switching it from left to right has also resolved the double tap on the touchpad which shows the hardware isn't broken.
This is really annoying me now so any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

Funnily enough, the same thing happened to me on pool about a week ago. I got told that I had 'sizzled the connections' between the CB and the left button and the touchpad by spilling drinks on it, meaning that they won't work properly.

The only thing different in the two cases was when you switched primary and secondary, your touchpad double-tap worked - mine didn't.

Was you in-game at the time or just browsing?
Is movement with your touchpad still working?

I'm not sure if this is a co-incidence or if it has something to do with Funky.

Annoying aint it. Yeah I was in a game when it happened. It happened in a game about 2 days ago as well but restarting the system got it working again. This time though nothing i do seems to fix it. Laptop is only about 6-7 months old which makes it even more annoying. The movement with it is fine on either left or right setting.
Just tried to copy and paste mattys comment but remembered i have no right click button now lol. Yeah i checked and it's under warranty until October. Don't really know who to contact and don't really want the stress of sending my laptop off to them.

Google the number for customer services. They have to help you via telephone customer services and will duly oblige pal.

Cheers. I will try to find a fix in the next couple of days but if i find no solution then it looks like i'll have to contact them and arrange something. Happened literally right after 1 of my favourite games(uncharted 3) stopped being read by ps3 out of nowhere. Perfect disc as well. Looks like £40 blown on that. Not a happy chappy atm. :/

As soon as i went into the game room the left button stopped working again. Each time this has happened it been during me entering the game room and playing. Starting to think it's not a coincidence now...
Anyone got any ideas why this is happening?

I would contact customer services mate, usually they can fix it over the phone with you anyway. Sounds weird though.
