Sorry if this is under the incorrect section. I have an Asus K53e and the touchpad buttons do not work. I installed the newest driver from the Asus website and the touch part works but the buttons do not. I am running Windows 7 64-bit and I don't know if it is a hardware or driver issue. I rarely use it as I normally use a USB mouse like I am now.
Go into Device Manager. Find the touchpad and right click on it. Uninstall the device and remove the drivers (when asked). Restart the system, enter the BIOS and disable the touchpad if you can. Save the BIOS settings and restart the computer with the mouse attached. Allow the system to fully boot up.
Then, restart and go into the BIOS. Enable the touchpad. Save the BIOS settings and restart the system. Windows will detect the "new" device and reload drivers for the touchpad. That should solve the issue if there is a software problem.
okay so I am running Ubuntu right now and the left click button does not function but the touchpad, right click, and tap to click are working. Does this mean that this is a hardware problem. The computer is still under warranty but I don't care enough to send it in. Could it be that Ubuntu doesn't have the right driver, I never installed one.
I just want to COLGeek for your help. I just ended up disassembling it. The issue is that the way the buttons are placed inside the case can cause the right button to prevent the left button from pressing the button on the motherboard. I moved them around and this has freed them. It works just like new!
