    Hey everyone! I have a MBP 2009. I spilled hot choco on it sometime in February. As a result, I always have to plug it in or else it would turn off immediately. Second, I can not use the clicker in the trackpad. I can TAP TO CLICK but that's it. Basically I can still use it but it became very slow.


    So I decided to buy a MBA 11" and just sell the MBP 13". I have a buyer so I tried to wipe my MBP clean. I inserted the CD it came with to reinstall everything. Here's the problem. I can not TAP my trackpad to CLICK anymore. All I can use is the keyboard. I can use the TAB button to go through the items but I can not use ENTER. :((( I really don't know what to do. Does anyone of you know how to fix this problem? Pls help.

    I don't suppose you could plug in an external mouse & keyboard, and do all the input that way? At least until the drive is wiped clean and the system re-installed.

    Tried the SPACEBAR instead of ENTER yet?
    Tried an external mouse or keyboard?

    If your USB ports are fried. Get a Bluetooth mouse and try that. Maybe the Apple store can help you.

    Wow guys thanks for the very fast response. I really didn't know what to do. Can I use any kind of mouse to do that? Or does it have to be an Apple mouse?

    Any mouse will do. I recommend a wired mouse.

    I just hope you're not selling it as a 'working' computer.

    You're not going to get even 100 dollars for it anywhere, just recycle it and get a brand new computer.

    If it was a 15" I'd pay a few $$ for it. If it is a unibody it is probably worth a bit more.

    I have you told this 'buyer' that the MBP is faulty? Please tell me you've told him.

    Don't worry I detailed the faults on my ad. :)

    ----------


    I was able to sell it for $320. :)

    ----------

    Don't worry. I told him everything. I even let him check it out himself.
