Mouse Right-click menu pops up for no apparent reason
Posted on 2011-09-27
This is my first question, so cut me some slack if I dont follow all the right protocols. We have a Dell Latitude D830 with a mouse problem. At any time the right-click context menu will pop up for no reason. It can happen on the desktop or when no one is touching the machine or it can happen when you are typing in Word or in Run. It is always the right-click menu.
Before the laptop ran out of warranty, Dell replaced the motherboard twice and the memory twice. They also sent us a new hard drive. None of these helped.
I updated the touchpad/pointing stick driver to the latest I could find. No joy.
This happens whether you are using the touchpad or a USB mouse. I tried deactivating the touchpad, but it still happens.
Thanks for any help.
