I don't think I've ever seen this happen in all my years working with Win. I hope someone has a solution.
I have a 2 year old HP Pavilion dv7 with Windows 7 Home Premium. I took the battery out while it was unplugged and in sleep mode. When I plugged it in and rebooted the left mouse button, and left keypad button does not work. I am able to right-click and bring up menus but left-clicking is not working. Rebooted a few times still the same.
Here is an interesting thing. When I left-click on an icon on the desktop it works. When I want to close the window I just opened by left-clicking on the X, it doesn't work. When I hit CTR-ALT-DEL then I am able to left-click on the power down button.
Anyone see this sort of behavior from Win 7?
