My Mouse's Right button Doesn't Work. It doesn't respond to my click. I have tested it on my friend's PC and its working fine. I have tried many times but it's not working in my PC. What's wrong with my mouse? What should I do?

Try to isolate the problem first, replace your mouse with other working mouse. If it does not work, you may have a problem in your ps2 mouse port. Try to use a USB mouse, if it still does not work, you have a problem with your mouse settings.

Open your mouse settings on the control panel. If he buttons tab is not the one in focus, click the Buttons tab. Check or tick the Switch primary and secondary buttons then click apply. Check your mouse, buttons are reversed at this time, right mouse click will be the left mouse click, now if still doesn’t work, your problem is the mouse. You may ignore this perception because as what you have said the mouse is working on the other computer.

Try this also, on the double click speed, adjust the slider speed in the middle of the bar, this might be the reason why, just give a try.

Good Luck!

Well there can be a number of reasons why your mouse is not working on your PC.

  1. First of all replace the mouse with some other mouse so as to check the functionality of your ps2 mouse port.
  2. If the second mouse works then probably there is something wrong with your mouse as there are little pins inside the mouse and they can easily be damaged if mouse is forced in its port.
  3. If that doesn't work then it means that your ps2 mouse port is not working and you should contact your computer manufacturer.

If the right button on your mouse is not working when plugged in on your computer but functioning very well on another computer then the problem is with your computer. First thing to check is the port where your mouse is plugged in. If you are using a PS/2 mouse, it can be a problem with the driver or with the PS/2 port.

First to try is to uninstall the driver. For Windows 7, click “Start” then right-click “Computer” and select “Manage”. In “Computer Management” window, select “Device Manager” on the left pane then on the right, expand “Mice and other pointing devices”. Next, right-click your mouse and select “Uninstall”. After this, your mouse will be disabled. You need to restart the computer without using your mouse.

To do this, press the Windows key + R to bring up the “Run” dialog then type without quotes “shutdown /r” then hit Enter. This restarts the computer. Windows will install the mouse driver back on startup. If this doesn’t work and you are using a PS/2 mouse, shift to a USB mouse instead. This may indicate a problem in the PS/2 port.

On the other hand, if you are using a USB mouse, try transferring the mouse to another USB port. Try using all available USB ports to troubleshoot the problem. If this doesn’t work, uninstall the USB driver. Repeat the same steps to access the “Computer Management” window. Next, expand “Universal Serial Bus controllers” then uninstall every item in this section.

Since your mouse will be disabled after this, repeat the same steps to restart your computer from the “Run” dialog. Windows will install the USB driver on startup. If the problem continues, install the latest chipset driver for your motherboard. Download the latest chipset driver for your motherboard from the following manufacturers:
