left click button not working

I have a Toshiba satellite A505-S6005.  The left click button just stopped working (also double tap on touchpad).  Right click button and external mouse work fine.  I have reinstalled the driver as recommended on other posts, but this did not fix the issue.

Re: left click button not working

It seems likely that it's a hardware failure.


You could perform a recovery to know for sure. Recovering your laptop to its original, out-of-the-box state is a great way to eliminate software as a possible cause of the problem. Note that doing a system recovery will return the laptop to its default conditions, completely wiping your data. Information on how to perform a system recovery can be found in your user's guide. On most models, you can hold '0' (zero) while booting to begin the procedure.


It may be easier to use an external mouse.
