Odd Laptop Issue... Help? - April 21st 2009, 10:59 PM

So, really odd issue here (seems odd to me anyway). I'm on a MacBook, and the mouse has been acting rather wonky lately. The trackpad seems fine, it's the actual button. It's not operating correctly unless I'm applying pressure to the battery (on one side and more in the corner, specifically). The issues that I'm dealing with are, say, I have multiple windows open, if I'm in one window and don't apply pressure to that part of the battery, I can still type, but I can't click on another window, close out of that window or do anything else on that window that requires a click unless I'm holding down that part of the battery. If I set my computer flat on wherever I'm using it, it acts as though I'm holding the mouse button down and trying to select something. It will select text, on the desktop it will make white boxes, etc. Someone suggested it could be the battery, but I wanted to get a second, third, maybe more opinions before I spent money on a new one. Tried Google... Found nothing. Also, my computer is no longer under warranty, but I'm concerned because I had an issue with the harddrive in the past, as in, it failed, as in, they could find no reason for it. I lost everything, and I would really hate to have to go through that again....

So, help?

EDIT The things I have tried are shutting off the computer, letting it cool down, in case it was a heat issue (it wasn't) and I tried hooking up the wireless mouse, as well. Same thing happened with the wireless mouse as is happening with this mouse.

Another thing is that this happened at random, and started only a few days ago?

Clean since 01.08.09

Hey darlin'.

check this out? not sure if this is exactly what you need or what the problem is, but perhaps have a look-see? (:

Baby, there's no gettin' over you.

Take my heart as you head for the door;
I won't be needing it anymore.

Because when it comes to balls, bigger is better.
