    Hello-
    I'm trying to play half life 2 via steam.
    Every time I try and adjust any settings, the mouse does not work. I can see it but it won't let me click.
    I'm connected to a 23" cinema display, and the touchpad normally works.
    I've tried 2 bluetooth mice, a magic mouse, and my older mighty mouse, with all the same results.
    What could this be?
    Thank you

    I had the same problem but I found that the pointer and the actual place where it clicks are not the same. It's a bit to the right I think, might be the left.
    I managed to set the resolution to my native resolution (2560x1440 ACD 27") and then you can set the settings, and do the other stuff.

    Yeah, I noticed that, it does still kinda click, but not in the right area.
    I'll try using tab and the arrow keys and set it to my native 1920x1200 and we'll see what happens.
    Thanks!

    Well, what do you know!
    I tried looking a tad bit to the right, like you said.
    The menus reacted when the mouse was about 2 inches to the left.
    I managed to switch to my native res, and the problem was solved!
    Thank you very much!
