    Middle-Click issues on my Laptop since format.... HELP!

    My Laptop's been playing up a lot alately so i formatted it and installed a fresh Windows last night. Ive only just fixed problems with my wireless and ive got a whole "charging" problem now (ridiculously senstive power port, very temperemental).

    Anyway, the latest bug-bear is the inability to middle click, i use it all the time in Firefox and its driving me insane. The laptop only has a left and right click - i used to click both at the same time to get a "middle-click" feature.

    Now it wont do it, ive looked everywhere on my laptop for a way to "turn the feature on" and its nowhere to be seen!

    Please help me before i go crazy!! Lol!

    You'll probably need to install the pointer drivers for your laptop. If you don't know where to get them, post your make/model and I'll/We'll take a look for you.

    Ive installed the latest available drivers on this laptop for my mouse (Synaptics Touchpad 6.2)

    Btw, my laptop is a HP Compaq nx6110 :thumbsup:

    what's weird is that I have the same driver version on mine and the left+right=middle click works without any configuration.

    Have you got a Synaptics icon in your system tray (i.e near the clock)?

    Right click and choose Pointing Device Properties. Choose the last tab which should be Device Settings (and a synaptics logo on it). Highlight the pointing device and click on Settings. Click the Defaults button at the bottom of the screen and try again.

    Out of interest, what version of Firefox are you on?

    Still no luck :-(

    Im using version 3.0.1 of Firefox

    EDIT: Im installing 3.0.5 now, it shouldnt be the problem though as i used to be able to middle click with the 3.0.1 version

    EDIT 2: Updated and still same problem...

    I'm not sure then - sorry I couldn't be any more help! If I had to set things on mine to make it work I'd at least have something to talk you through Apart from removing the driver and reinstalling it, there's not much else I can suggest.

    I would actually be tempted after uninstalling, to try the standard driver from their website:

    synaptics.com/sup…ers

    After all, what harm can it do ?
