The entry-level version of the Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming Notebook lacks the higher-end hardware complement of its pricier siblings. The battery life puts many other laptops – gaming or not – to shame.

The left click button of my touchpad is not working

I owned my 7566 for 2 years, and the left/right button of the touchpad is not working , I have to click multiple times to have my click recognized by the computer (the tap to click function works perfectly fine).

I tried rebooting, resetting touchpad setting and windows update and none of them worked, any thoughts?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi @hfpong ,

It may be a hardware problem.

Perhaps the cable from the touchpad/ buttons to the motherboard is loose or perhaps the buttons contact surface has worn down with use.

Here’s a link to the service manual for your laptop (taken from this webpage)

Scroll to p.66 to view the necessary pre-requisite steps and then the procedure to remove / replace the touchpad.

This should give you access to the touchpad connector cable to check that it is connected securely.

If it is OK it may be that you’ll have to replace the touchpad button assembly.

My best guess is that the buttons are worn out. Especially if you use them often and don't use an external USB mouse. I've seen this issue on several laptops. If you have to press harder than normal to get them to work, then they are worn out.
