Lappy left button collapsed... AGAIN!

Morning Chaps, The last lappy I had was a Toshiba. One most annoying this was, the left button sort of collapsed on the left side of the button, needing to press it HARD for a response. Well, the exact same thing has happened to this Samsung I use now!! Why would this happen please? What can I do to rectify it?

It might just be the way you hit it.

Well, I'm no further forward with this. Anyone technically-minded that can offer advice please? It's sending me BATS!!!!!

Fit a new keyboard. Probably available on eBay at a reasonable price.

I presume you are referring to the left mouse button. Those laptop mice are a nuisance. Get a USB mouse and use that - far more responsive and cheap to replace!!

You could try this - Go to control panel - hardware - mouse and swap the buttons, as if you were left handed. Then your right button would act as the left. If you need the right button option use, Shift + F10

If its driving you BATS - turn the laptop upside down and do as JB suggested :0)

have you tried taking it apart and seeing where the problem lies - unusual as its two different makes of laptop.

Just to let ya know, I gave up and have purchased a wireless mouse, works perfectly well and cost a tenner... 8-)
