Thread: Some interesting macbook voodoo

My sister has come to me with a problem she has experienced with her 2008 white plastic macbook, and I'm having no luck figuring out what could be causing this.
Whenever she rests her hand, or applies pressure to the area directly to the right of the trackpad and below the keys, there will be random left or right mouse clicks aswell as keystrokes without any input from her. It happens about 85% of the time.
Has anyone experienced anything like this before?

Sounds like a bad or loose trackpad, or perhaps the keyboard cable or connector is causing it by moving slightly when she rests her hand above it on the case. Not much you can do without taking things apart. Since the machine is no longer in warranty, you might want to take it apart and have a look.
