This has been happening for the last week. Once every 1-3 hours my mouse will start clicking on its own. This lasts at least a few minutes or until I close my laptop and wake it up again. Zemana couldn't find any viruses and all my drivers are up to date.


My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 5559. This is what it looks like when it happens:

Looks like a Touch Screen Issue / Phantom Clicks.

It may be Faulty in some way / Does it have any Slight Cracks or was dropped ?


I damaged a Asus lappy while repairing it on closing the Lid on one hinge sitting up { All Screw Out  Rear }.

First time in 15yrs - Oh Well !....but it cracked the Screen and the same symptoms appeared - Phantom Clicks and unusable.

It looks like a touchscreen issue to me, too.
If you don't use the touchscreen, do WinKey+R, type DEVMGMT.MSC<enter> in the run box, locate the touchscreen device, and disable it.

I have this same problem, but no touchscreen. Lenovo ideapad 310. I have called the manufacturer twice, works for a bit after they take over and do their thing, but always comes back. New computer, windows 10... very frustrating!
