    My trackpad was working perfectly then one day part of it stopped working. The top part and some of the bottom works great, but theres like a strip of it that is unresponsive. How can I fix that? Do I have to take it to the apple store? If so how long will it take to get it back because i need it before I go back to school.

    Its a 13in macbook pro I got it on christmas so its still pretty new.

    I'd setup a genius bar appointment then, ask them for an in-store repair. Usually they'll have it done within a week.

    Are you up-to-date on all software and firmware?

    That is probably the best solution so this way you can know for sure what if anything is wrong with your system.

    My trackpad was perfect until tonight, now it's like it's always clicked. So I highlight everything I go to, or drag icons out of the dock. It's only sometimes though. I did do a software update with it today... is that the problem? Or can I change a setting to make it stop clicking when I don't want it to?

    I turned off the tap to click and I have solved the "selecting everything" problem... but now my two-finger tap for secondary click doesn't work (even though it's definitely turned on). What's going on???

    Thanks for the help everyone. I took it to the apple store and they replaced it for free while I waited. Everything works perfectly now.
