When I left click I sometimes have to click the button several times for it to respond. The right click works perfectly - there are no problems with it.
Naturally I tried switching the primary and secondary buttons in the 'Mouse' options, but the problem remains - the left click (right mouse button) is unresponsive, just as the left mouse button was before I switched them (the right click still works perfectly with the left mouse button).
This same problem persists with several different mouses, so I am sure the problem isn't the mouse itself.
I recently formatted and reinstalled Windows XP Media Center and I'm not sure if that is where the problem began.
My PS/2 Compatible Mouse driver details reads: "File version 5.1.2600.2180(xpsp_sp2.rtm.040803-2158"
What steps do you recommend me taking? Are there any additional information you would like to have?
Please write some simple instructions when asking for information which might be hard to find, to avoid the cause for me to post "how" and having to wait for a delayed period of time to find out how to provide you with the information you require.
Thank you very much.
Sorry for posting a reply so soon, but I am not able to find any way to edit my previous post.
It should be noted that I have also tried using a graphics tablet instead of a mouse and it works perfectly. So, again, the problem only affects mouses and seems to be software related. I have installed the latest update for my mouse driver but the problem remains.
The problem is most visible when I try to drag a window or otherwise have to hold the button pressed for a period of time. The signal gets interrupted and only works for very brief periods of time.
The left mouse button also sometimes acts as a double click.
Thank you again, and again sorry for the double post.
