I'm playing with a minor annoyance...laptop mouse buttons don't work properly, but sporadically. The machine starts up okay and all is nice, then out of the blue the mouse buttons quit working correctly. Tried it with three different mice. Same story with the touch pad. Did an uninstall of the driver...still no joy. Did a system restore...nada. So, I swapped out the HDD. Thinking I needed to narrow it down to hardware or software. I thought for sure it would be hardware, but to my surprise the alternative HDD is working perfectly. So now I gotta reformat the one that's buggy. I'm not big at using the registry and trying to locate a bad command line or whatever, so for me it's easier to just re install an OS etc. Any alternative suggestions are welcome.
