    I am running Windows 10 (Creators Update) and have been doing so for quite a while on a laptop. Recently, whilst playing a game, I was clicking the touchpads left hand button (mouse1) rapidly until suddenly it stopped working completely.

    In addition, tapping to activate mouse 1 is also not working with the touchpad. Right clicking is still working and mouses are also working properly.

    When I looked to see what the touchpad was doing (and if any of the buttons were activated) I noticed that it says the left side button is always being clicked and held (even though I'm not pressing nor holding it)?

    Is there some way of fixing this or has the hardware completely broke?

    I have tried reinstalling the driver and that didn't work too, it acted exactly the same.

    I think you have physically broken the left button, if so it's fixable, you can probably fix it yourself if you're good with your hands.

    What's the full make and model of the laptop ?

    The laptop is the MSI GL62 6QC
    (I have also noticed that when I boot up the computer, the button seems to be always active)
