    Hi Guys!
    I own a Toshiba Satellite C660, (Of course :P) Anyways. Today I was just doing what I usually do on my laptop,
    when suddenly the left mouse button stopped working. (Bare with me, this is very weird to explain xD!) Also I cannot "Left click" On my touch pad. I can still move the cursor around with the touch pad, and right click with the right button.

    I've tried lightly shaking it incase of crumbs, or something. Although I never eat around my laptop. It's not hard to push like there would be something under it, it just doesn't work!

    In a sum up, I can't left click. But I'm able to move the cursor and right click, Odd!

    At the moment I have my USB mouse plugged in from my computer and it works fine, but is very annoying!

    Sorry if I didn't explain it too well!

    Please help!

    On this virtual way it is not easy to say what is wrong there. It is not easy to say if the left touchpad button is “defective” or disabled somehow.

    At first you should check all settings for touchpad. If your notebook has preinstalled Synaptics software check all settings related to touchpad buttons.

    I have checked the settings, and everything seems to be in order and place.
    It says the device is working properly D:

    >At the moment I have my USB mouse plugged in from my computer and it works fine, but is very annoying!
    Does this mean that you can use the ”left click” using the USB mouse?

    In such case I would assume that the touchpad’s left button stopped working…
    But this is just an assumption…

    You checked all the touchpad setting?
    Usually you can find this in control panel -> mouse -> Advanced tab -> Advances feature settings

    Here you can configure the touchpad buttons…
    In your case I would check the configuration of left button… it should be set to “Click”
    The right button is set to “Shortcut Menu”

    Looks more like touchpad hardware problem.
    If the touchpad button would still not work after setting the system back to factory settings, then you should contact an service technician who would replace the touchpad module.

    You can set the notebook back to factory settings using a HDD recovery procedure or using the Recovery disk.
    Recovery disk can be created using the Toshiba preinstalled tool called Recovery Media Creator. But this info can be found in user manual…. Did you read it?
