    Hello everyone, I have a friend that has a Blackbook CD 2ghz. Anyways, he told me that after he applied some updates (10.4.11) his macbook trackpad stop registering clicks. At the beginning we thought it was the click button, but after we connected a mouse to his MB, we figured out it may be a software problem because his mac is not even registering left clicks, only right clicks with a mouse. I already tried smc reset and pram reset with no avail. Also we tried to make a new account but same problem happens. I think the only way to fix this problem is to do an archive and install, but he does not have his recuperation cd's. Any solutions? Thanks for your responses.

    Is it ignoring all trackpad input? By that, I mean, does tapping vs clicking work one way or the other? If not, did he somehow disable the trackpad, in the mouse preferences window?

    If it's just tapping that doesn't work, that can be enabled in the same system preferences pane.
