Did you made changes before this problem? What computer model is it? Sounds like a touchpad control setting.

The easiest way to find out if it's a hardware or software problem is to download a Linux cd like http://www.ubuntu.com/download
Burn the CD and boot the laptop from it. You don't need to install it, just run from it.
If the problem still exists in Linux then you know it's a hardware fault. Either a damaged/faulty button or maybe a loose cable inside.

One thing you could do is get an external USB mouse, uninstall the driver and program for your touchpad and reinstall it from your laptop manufactures website.
