toshiba C660 loses odd mouse right click

Specs: Windows 7, Celeron/2GB
My dual core celeron laptop on Win7 has a problem with the built in mouse right click button. When used in a program (Pretty Good Solitaire) it only works 90 to 95% of the time. Is this a Win7 or a Toshiba problem or something else?

If it works well in other programs like word or your browser, it is the program that is the problem. In this case, uninstall and reinstall the program if you have the disk or installer saved.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I would have assumed that, but it is a new install and I have used PGS for many years on lots of operating systems. There is a new key on the laptop called right click, but it does not have exactly the same functionality as the synaptics right click button. I think there may be an interaction between the keyboard and the synaptics buttons as the right click button does work after certain keys have been pressed.

Is it Windows 7 compatible? Try running in compatibility mode as Vista or XP, that may help.

Hi sorry was reading this with some interest, I had a similar problem with one of these but that was in word the machine would stutter when typing. So you would type and the machine would loose some of the keystrokes. Turned out to be a faulty hard disk. Once it was replaced the machine worked like a charm.

Hope this helps!
Thanks

Compatability mode sounds a good idea. I think the problem may have been the bios. They have just updated it, no reason given, and the problem may now be cured. I also intend running under wine in ubuntu 10.10.

Thanks
