Login / Trackpad

Thomasnet asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-24
Hello guys,

I need help (again).  I am having problems with my trackpad when I am trying to log in.  I can move the courser but I can not click on the account names to type the password.  After the login procedure it works again.  It is really weird..   Even if I boot from the Snow Leopard DVD I am not able to click with the trackpad (for instance on disk utility).

If I use my USB mouse I do not have this problem.  It works fine.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!
