Hi -

I have a Lenovo T410 thinkpad running Windows 7 64-bit, and yesterday I spilled a bit of syrup on the trackpad and the left and right buttons that sit directly below it. It wasn't much, and I tried to wipe it up immediately. Afterwards, the interal mouse has gone in and out of functionality. I can still use the swipe/scollpad to move around the cursor without trouble, but I cannot click/select anything. When the mouse cursor hovers over an item, it will not even highlight the item or change form itself (e.g. from an arrow to a hand over a link), which makes me think something is messed up beyond the buttons themselves (which I plucked up and tried to clean).

I plugged in a wired mouse, and for the first several minutes it still did not work but eventaully it recognized it and with no trouble, but when I restart with no wired mouse, back to square one.

Appreciate any thoughts/help.
