    Hey guys, a friend got a Macbook Pro, he says the mouse is moving around the screen as normal but it can't click on anything, is this software or hardware related please?

    More likely he's not clicking it right. You didn't mention if this is an old or new MBP; what OS he's running, etc etc etc. For a single (left) click, he needs to be sure to use only one finger and either press down on the bottom of the trackpad or tap on the pad. For a right-click, use 2 fingers. Here's a video to review:

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
