My Toshiba Elan touch pad will move the mouse around but will not click anywhere. It won't let me click with the buttons either. Please help.

SO you reinstalled Windows and it still won't work? If you mean you reinstalled the touchpad drivers, Get hold of a USB mouse so you can get into the control panel/device manager. It might show a problem, but you may have a hardware outage or a loose connection under the touchpad. This is a longshot, but click and hold both buttons for a few seconds, I remember this used to work in Windows XP when something got messed up on a touchpad.

This link has a few ideas you can try as well.

I havent tried reinstalling windows just the driver. Its windows 7. If it was a hardware issue why would it let me move the mouse around but not click??? With the buttons or the touchpad....

Have you tried an external mouse. If that works then it must be hardware related. If it does not work then it must be software related. You could also try "Mouse keys" under Ease of Access.
