Right click drop down menu keeps popping up

chris.bester
Can someone please help? I resently bought a new Packard Bell Easynote laptop and are experiencing a very annoying problem. My right click drop down menu keeps on popping up all the time while running any program. Even typing this messaqge is a mission, the menu pops up between typing the caracters and I have to press escape to get rid of it. I've tried all sorts of different things to sort it out but to no avail. If there is anyone out there that can give me some advice I'll appreciate it greatly..

    I have had a similar problem before; my keyboard had a defect whereby the right click button kept getting stuck and would bring up the menu all the time. I had to return it and get it fixed. Works perfectly now!! Hopefully you have some kinda warrant on your laptop or return policy.

    I just had exactly the same problem as you. While explaining to my friend about the problem it took me ages to type it out because it kept right clicking in different parts of my message haha. But my friend figured out the problem. If you're using a mouse just simply disable your touch pad. You can do this through control panel/mouse. Now my computer and mouse are working fine.

    Hello yes this same thing has happened to me. i have a top of the range ACER PC desktop running windows vista premium. It has 6GB memory, and 4 core processor. I have the same problems whatever i do the right click menu appears. I did a factory reset (wiped hard drive), i had a complete Norton 360 protection. The problem still persisted. I even took the battery out of the pc to wipe the BIOS memory and it still carried on. I paid ?65 for the pc to be fixed. They found nothing wrong with it - they thought i was mad. they thought i was making it up. Now i got it home again and its happening again. Can you help me too?
