Ideapad 700 Left or Right Click not working.

2018-11-18, 18:22 PM

As the title says, both the left and right click at the bottom of the touchpad stopped working.

 

I've tried,

-Checking for driver updates (windows and lenovo vantage)

-Check Mouse Properties (device  was enabled)

-Returned Mouse setting back to default

-Disabled and Enabled ClickPad

-Rebooted my Laptop

-Removed External Mouse

 

Any help to  get my clickety clickers  working would be appreciated.

On my 700-15ISK I can tap once with one finger anywhere on the touchpad to act as a left mouse click.  I think that tapping once with two fingers acts as a right mouse click (not sure about that, as I prefer to use a separate mouse).  Do those still work?  If they do, look in the settings for the touchpad to see what other taps are supported and how to customise them to your liking.

Bless you for the response <3

The problem is that I work a fair bit on spreadsheets which is fine when I have the mouse plugged in but while I'm out and about, it's hard to change column widths/row heights (for example) with just the touchpad. :(

Can't fathom out the right click either but to be fair, I haven't looked properly for that yet. Two fingers don't work unfortunately.

Hi, I just had a look and it is a double tap which is enabled in mouse properties for a right click. However, that doesn't work either. So, as the touchpad is working for things like two finger scroll, wouldn't that indicate that it's a driver problem or similar?

SORTED!! - Yay me :)

You need a USB Mouse though

1) Go to Device Manager
2) Select "Mice and other compatible devices"
3) Select "synaptics..." or "Lenovo Pointing Device"
4) Right Click and Select "Update Driver"
5) From the pop-up window, Select "Browse My Computer"
6) Select "Let me pick for list of device drivers"
7) Choose "PS/2 Compatible Device" (This previously said "synaptics"

Should I be this excited about getting my clickers back!? :)

I tried that and it did work and i got my clickers back however the two finger scrolling option was disabled and it was impossible to enable it.

 

So same steps but instead of choosing "PS/2 Compatible Device" you should choose "Lenovo Pointer device" and you will have your clickers and the two finger scrolling.

 

thank you for the steps.
