Hi,

The problem is with both, my mouse and my touchpad.

Whenever I connect my usb mouse to my laptop, it lights up and moves but I can't click on anything, left and right click both aren't working.
Temporary/weird fix: I can only fix it by opening Task Manager and starting to move the window around multiple times after which, it starts working (The same thing with my touchpad).
After I shutdown my laptop and keep the USB mouse connected, I start it up again and it does the same thing. The problem stays, doesn't matter which mouse I use or if I'm using my touchpad.
Already tried: reinstalling drivers, updating drivers, trying different usb ports, system restore to the point when the problem started (a few months ago).

Thanks in advance for any help.
