Hey, ive just noticed that the corners of my trackpad buttons dont really work, i need to press really hard. I was wondering if any one would tell me why this is, how to fix it. It works fine in the middles but i have gotten quite used to pressing the sides. Any help would be appreciated, is this normal?

Which corners? Also, it would be nice to know which laptop model you have.

I had the same problem on my old MacBook (white, late 2007). I think it's just a symptom of using the mouse extensively. Sometimes you can make it a little bit better if you pull the button up from the sides, but that's just a temporary fix. Like andr3wkim said though, you didn't give any machine specs, so this might be way off.

Good luck.
