A few hours ago the trackpad on my MPB stopped responding to clicks, I tried restarting but that had no effect. So I plugged in a USB mouse and tried that, right click worked, but left click still had no effect at all. So after searching the internet for information I came across this thread MacBook Trackpad button (& left mouse button) not working , his advise worked and I can use the left click on the usb mouse as long as I dont touch the trackpad, as soon as I do I am back to just the right click.

OSX is up to date, and I cant think of anything else that it could be, does anyone have any ideas?

I do have warranty remaining, as the MPB is only a few months old, but the nearest applestore is an hours drive away, so I would rather fix is myself if possible.

QUOTE Thanks
