Currently Being ModeratedSep 2, 2010 5:45 PM (in response to Neil2)Unfortunately, unless you purchased AppleCare, the MacBook's faulty trackpad will probably have to stay that way, unless you appoint a genius to look into your problem, they can probably unjam it, but if that doesn't work, you can:
A- stick to tapping the trackpad, or
B- Getting a new Mac.
Of course A is the simpler (and cheaper ) option, but if you are very used to clicking, then you should consider a new mac.
But that is your choice!
Hope this helps,
PS- Too bad apple doesn't care if we only use our MacBooks for 50 hrs in 2 years...Macbook, Mac OS X (10.6.4), iPhone 3GS (4.0.1) punch line: why is there so much month left at the end of the money? :)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 4, 2010 3:06 PM (in response to Wookkams)I ordered a new battery from OWC for $99. That should fix the problem. The button works fine when I remove the battery. It seems that the battery got swollen and pushed up on the bottom of the button, jamming it. That seems to be a fairly common problem judging by the posts I've seen here.PowerMac G5/2x2, a MacBook C2D/2.0, iPhone, 1st & 5th gen iPods, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
