So recently my mouse stopped left clicking but it can still right click which isnt very useful since sometimes it keeps right clicking by itself anyway (see below) so i was forced to use another mouse that i have but that one freaks out and goes all over the place by itself or when i move it and its getting annoying before that the mouse sometimes did that but it stopped eventually and started working again (the one that cant left click) but it also sometimes keeps right clicking and the only way i could be able to fix that was by banging it against the desk (only slightly).

 

My mouse specs (i think) also some of the text is greek.

 

EDIT:Please some moderator rename this to "Mouse stoped being able to left click." and remove this text because i forgot to finish the title.

The mouse is probably broken. Try another one on your computer.

The one that goes all over the place is probably really dirty. Look in the aperture where the light comes out of the mouse, clean all the dirt out of there.

 

Mouses/mice work best when kept clean.

I would try a 3rd mouse. If both mice were behaving exactly the same it might indicate at computer problem, but what you are describing is a peripheral problem.

 

You could also check that your USB ports are clean and/or try a different USB port.

We dont have enough money for a new one and the fact that when i returned from the first day of english classes chrome froze and then explorer itself did at the point where CTRL+ALT+DELETE or the power button didnt even work doesnt make it any better.

I'm not suggesting you buy one immediately (though they can be had for just $5), but borrow one from a family member or friend to test first.

 

I can help you if your other issues persist, after we fix the mouse problem.

I re-iterate, your problem really sounds like a mouse problem. Otherwise both mouses would be behaving exactly the same.
