Hello everyone.

I have the following computer: MacBook (13-inch, Aluminum, Late 2008) - Technical Specifications

My problem is that the trackpad becomes unresponsive whenever I try to do a fresh install of any OS. The cursor moves on the screen, but doesn't select or click anything. This problem occurs regardless of whether the OS I am trying to install is older or newer than the one installed on the system at the time. The trackpad works perfectly otherwise.

The following is one of the screens where the trackpad won't click:

Thank you for your time. Looking forward to some comprehensive solutions.
QUOTE Thanks
