Windows 7: Unable to click on anything

Unable to click on anything

I'm not sure if this is due to device failure or what because my touchpad is also not responding. I'm running on Win7. This has happened once before, but I managed to fix it somehow.

I've already tried reinstalling the drivers and firmware to the mouse.

My mouse: Razer DeathAdder 3500DPI.

Issue

I'll be playing World of Warcraft casually, windowing back and forth from Skype to World of Warcraft, clicking the icons on the taskbar, but since this morning, it's like my mouse clicks aren't registering.

The icons don't shift colors like they normally would if you hover over them.
It's the same if I try with the touchpad.

It even just locks up sometimes when I'm randomly playing wow and my left click, right click, and mouse wheeling does not respond.

No, I'm not a clicker, but my screen won't turn and this is very detrimental to my game-play.

The only solution is to Ctrl+Alt+Del and then start the task manager and I can click once again until it happens, soon after.

Other

I've scanned my computer with MWB and Eset Nod32. No viruses.



I would like to get this solved as soon as possible. Thank you!

Just out of curiosity, when was the last time you simply restarted the system?

I've done several restarts today. Like 4-5.

Any help regarding this issue? It's still persistent even through a sys. restore if that helps. I have no clue what sort of issue this could be.

I'm really a crash dump reader, the first thing I usually point to in this kind of situation is a driver conflict of some sort. Without a minidump file to read I'm kind of shooting in the dark though.

Would you want to use Teamviewer to look through my system?

EDIT1: I also have Skype, Teamspeak, and Ventrilo if you want to talk about it on there and I can give you the information you need to figure out what the issue is. It's really bothersome and I cannot do arenas at all because it costs my team matches when I can't turn my screen and see what's going on.

EDIT2: @12:32 EST: Restarting USB ports, drivers, etc again.

Still not working. And the side mouse key on the DeathAdder is like being spammed when I'm not even hitting it. The mouse is like malfunctioning or there is a driver issue. I've reinstalled them several times.

This is really frustrating because I have no clue why it's locking up and spamming just that one key. Can someone point me in any direction?

Also when I have a window open, like this one for instance, I cannot click out to go to another, sometimes.

BTW: I checked under Device Manager and it's supposedly working properly.

Thieve,
So I can get a better grasp of your system, and so that others who come along further down in this thread can do the same:

UPDATE YOUR SEVENFORUMS SYSTEM SPECS


User CP (3rd item in the top menu bar) |


in left-hand column,under Your Profile, Edit System Spec |


using SIW and Speccy to gather info, fill in the blanks.
Do me a favor and add the word laptop or desktop to the “system manufacturer” block.
Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader, Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor

Scroll down and click on the SAVE CHANGES button.

=============================
Post a msg when this action is completed.



Thanks,

Excellent.

Since it is a 64 bit system, you might want to consider having 6 GB of ram as a minimum.

However, let's try following:
Run both the Cleaner and Registry portions of CCleaner (link in my sig). Don't worry, despite the opinions of a a few who haven't used and overused CCloaner as I have, your computer will not catch on fire and blow up. CCleaner will also backup your registry before cleaning.

Then use the Tools part of CCleaner as explained below:
LIST OF STARTUP PROGRAMS USING CCLEANER


CCleaner | Tasks icon | Startup tab | click on Save to text file button (bottom right side)

Using the PAPER CLIP icon in the top panel of a Message Reply window, attach the .txt file generated by CCleaner.
