My computer was working slowly, so I decided to close what I was doing and re-boot. After re-booting and opening browser (google chrome) The computer locked up locked up completely, would not work.
Mouse pad and keys were working normally when I shutdown first time
I could not get task manager to come up, so I took the drastic measure of turning the power off completely. Hold the Power key down.
Computer rebooted and asked me if I wanted to come up in safe mode, I said no, and open normally.
Well when it came up, the left click would not work. Right click works, touch pad works.
After considerable trial and error, I was able to switch to the mouse key through the control panel => Mouse
So know I can limp along and run the computer, albeit, much more slowly.
The left click moves and makes a noise as if it is still working. It just doesn’t do anything.
Did something happen because I didn’t start in SAFE Mode?
FWIW, I bought the laptop brand new about three years ago for $300 at Walmart and it works pretty well. I just surf the net and do some small spreadsheet and documents. no gaming.
I do have some keyboard issues as well that I work around. Four keys do not work (the Up arrow, the backspace and the “Two” and Three" keys).
But this mouse thing is really making me think about a replacement.
