Intel Mac :: Constant And Interpretive Double Clicking?

Apr 29, 2012

I have an iMac 21,5 purchased in October 2011. My clicks have gone mad for 2 or 3 days now. It came out of the blue. Whenever I click, it acts like a double click. I've been looking for information on internet but I couldn't find anything conclusive.I have tried a trick in the System Preferences > Mouse > Double click speed, but it hasn't changed anything (I can go extreme slow or quick, same thing happens). 

I have a Magic Mouse, a random and ultra super plain Logitech mouse (wired) and a common wireless Logitech mouse; the problem is the same for all mice. I also tried my roomate's mouse, and it does the same thing. 

when I delete email I delete 2 of them. Opening a new tab? Here you go 4 of them. Clicking on a document? Oh no you can't rename it and it opens. Have an important text to type? it's impossible de move the cursor without selecting an entire word or phrase or row. It took me 3 hours to clic on "Categories - Using your iMac Intel" because the box was instantly checked-unchecked.

MacBook Pro :: Keys Sticking - Can Hear Constant Beeping Like Clicking On A Link

Aug 20, 2014

I don't normally have my sound on, but I have of late. It seems that my keys may be sticking, or trackpad, or mouse ..  

Symptoms: I can hear constant beeping, like you are clicking on a link that is not working, you get that Ding/beep. It is constant, like your continuing hitting the enter button on a link that is not working. 

I reboot and the sound stops. I don't think it is the mouse - and I do not always have it turned on. Sometimes also when I log in, when you type password, there are characters already entered, and it keeps going ... I have to hard reboot. 

As far as I know I have not dropped this laptop, nothing has been dropped on it. I can not see if any of the keys are pushed in, and the trackpad looks normal.

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mavericks (10.9.3)

OS X :: Double Clicking On Windows Dont Work

Sep 17, 2010

Stange one this ( or really obvious and I just can't see the answer ).

I have transfered a CAD program to another computer so I can leave it up and running to do a really long render - several days worth.

So I transfered all relevant files to the new machine ( 17" MBP 2.8 ) - and the programs and files run fine. However the programs control windows were collapsed to a single bar - no problem I thought, I'll just double click them to uncollapse them. But that didn't work, either with the trackpad or the mouse.

I then tried double clicking in windows on other programs, and this didn't work.

So the nub of the problem is that on the new machine the double click feature doesn't work.

How do I turn it on? I've tried looking at System Preferences / Trackpad etc. and can't see the answer.

OS X :: Double Clicking Doesn't Do What It Used To (highlight Text)?

Dec 7, 2008

For some reason, double clicking the trackpad button or with one finger on the trackpad itself (tap-tap, essentially), does not do what it used to.

For instance, if I go to the URL box/bar on the top of Safari double clicking no longer highlights the entire URL string so I can delete it. I manually have to drag from one side to the other, or click the little website icon in the left of the box.

In every single application, double clicking (or tapping) no longer highlights text. It's a pain to always have to drag all the time.

OS X :: Mouse Double Clicking - Unable To Highlight

Feb 17, 2009

My work computer id acting up. I am running Mac OS X, using a standard, single-button mouse. The problem is, it doesn't want to simply click once and double clicks at random times. I'm not sure when it will happen next, but it's getting annoying. Also, it seems the computer is having trouble highlighting text. When I scroll over text to highlight, it will not stay highlighted. This makes quick copying and pasting impossible.

Keep in mind, this is a work computer and I would not be able to directly manipulate files. Also, our "IT" person usually guesses until she gets it right.

Note: I know that there are probably threads related to this topic, but I did not find any in my searches. I guess the forums match the machines when it comes to not finding what you need.

Hardware :: Macbook Trackpad Button Double Clicking

Jan 25, 2009

title says it all really. Every time I touch, even lightly the button below the trackpad I get a double click. It's making it impossible to highlight text and windows automatically go into the dock if I try to move them. Is it something serious or could I just try and fix it by dismantling and cleaning it? I'd rather not take it apart, to be honest.

OS X :: Mouse Keeps Double Clicking In Snow Leopard After A Single Click

Sep 23, 2009

I have this really annoying issue where my mouse will randomly double click in OS X when i didn't actually double click my mouse. I had this problem before in Leopard (with different mouse) but now it seems the problem has returned with snow leopard. has anyone else had this problem? I checked the mouse properties and there's nothing strange there. I also don't have custom drivers installed. Just default snow leopard drivers.

Mac Mini :: Crashes - No Double Clicking / Highlighting And Command Key Failure

Feb 1, 2012

My perfectly wonderful Mini has started doing the following, in this order:

First, I could no longer double click on a word but the right button functions still worked (and yes, I did try another mouse and had the same problem, then I switched the mouse preference to double click with the right button, but had the same problem). This started two evenings ago.

Second, the next morning, I suddenly couldn't drag the cursor across a word, or a sentence, etc. Now it was really getting annoying, because in my work I paste and copy a lot, and this caused me much, much extra work, so it's not a minor gripe.

Then, by that afternoon, I had a complete system crash. The whole screen froze. I tried turning off my Mini with the power button (which I hated because I know you're not supposed to), but the screen remained frozen.

At that point, done disk repair thing from my original instal DVD. Well, it unfroze the screen, but did not fix the mouse/cursor problem. Clear the PRam. That still didn't work. The next morning (today), it crashed almost immediately. Again, totally frozen. This time, I reinstalled the entire system from the instal disk. No luck.

I came across an app I'd bought the last time I'd had bad Mini problems (and had forgotten), called Disk Warrior, so I tried that. Well, it did find three unfixable, corrupt .plist files that it said could cause system disruption. I thought I'd found the problems. So I deleted all of them AND their apps, downloaded fresh copies of the apps, and restarted. Still same problems.

So, I ran Disk Warrior again, and it reported those same three corrupt plist files. Then I realized it was reporting the ones in the trash, so I emptied the trash, ran Disk Warrior again, and it said NO problems. Restarted and tried to highlight some text, and it worked! But it still wouldn't double click.

Intel Mac :: Constant Wifi Drop & Disconnect?

Mar 9, 2012

My one month old iMac does not maintain an interent connection for very long. Sometimes it stays connected for <maybe> an hour, but  MORE often it drops either the wifi signal all together or just stops connecting to the internet... when it does seem to have a connection it is VERY slow.  

My solution: turn off Wifi wait a few seconds and turn it back on... which is very annoying, but that fixes it.  

I have the latest software across the board. I'm running wifi on Time machine. My signal is strong. I have a Powerbook and iPad that connects to it without issues (for a couple of years its been fine until this iMac problem).

Intel Mac :: Making Constant Buzzing/humming Noise?

May 6, 2012

I purchased a 21" iMac a couple of months ago. Today it started making constant buzzing/humming noise. It's not really loud, but it is noticeable and annoying after a while. It stops if I put the computer in sleep mode or turn it off, but it starts back up  the moment I turn it back on again. It sounds like it is coming from the bottom of the screen near the speakers. I have tried adjusting the brightness and volume, but to no avail. I also tried lifting the computer off the desk to see if it was just vibration, but that did not make a difference either.

Intel Mac :: Constant Kernal Crashes After 8 Gig RAM Card Added

Jun 9, 2012

I have a mid 2010 27" iMac and just added 16 gig of new ram (first two slots came with 2 gig each and I bought and had installed two more 8 gig - so I can run Final Cut Pro X) Well, after the new RAM was installed by an apple certified dealer - it kernel crashed about 5 times randomly, which it had never done before - It was obvious it was caused by the new RAM - I took it back and they replaced it - and it has now kernal crashed 6 times - Are 8 Gig Ram cards not compatible with 2010 imacs? These guys seem like they know what they are doing - but enough is enough - I know in Apple's literature they mention that only 2 and 4 gig upgrades are possible - but they said the 8 gigs just came out

Intel Mac :: Constant Printer Paper Jam After Installing Office

Jun 24, 2012

This now happens for any document, not only office documents. It appears the iMac regards the printer as ready and waiting, but the printer keeps looping the same page and the paper jams every time. After getting the paper out, the printer re-starts the same page again - with a new paper jam as result.

The printer is a Samsung CLP315 colour laser printer, connected through USB.

Only "solution" is to get the paper out and then quickly turn the printer off, and start it again to print a new page. I have an iMac 21", bought in May last year (the then new generation).iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

Intel Mac :: Login Goes To White Screen And Then Back - Constant Cycle

Jun 3, 2012

When I turn my computer on, a gray bar must be filled (takes about 20 mins) before it goes to the login page. Then, when I log in with the corrct password, the screen abruptly turns white like the startup white page for about 5-10 seconds (time varies each time) and then goes back to the login page where it will happen again and again. This all started when I banged my mouse and it stopped working and I held down the power button to turn off the computer and then hit it again to turn it on.

IMac (Intel) :: Installed SSD / Constant Fans / No HDD Temp Sensor

Dec 10, 2014

I've recently installed a Crucial M500 512 GB SSD into my 21.5" 2011 iMac. I've done this to quite a few iMacs, and am well aware that some have a temperature sensor on the factory-installed hard drive. This one, however, did not, and now that the SSD is installed, I'm getting constantly running fans. 

The fans run whether it's booted from the internal SSD, an external FireWire HD, or even if it's sitting in Target Disk Mode or on the Boot Options screen, so I feel like it's hardware-related.

Intel Mac :: Mouse Will Not Double-click Open Anything?

Feb 7, 2012

My mouse cannot left-click on anything. Cannnot open a or close a document by left clicking. It will open or close via pull-down menus and right-clicking. It also cannot select anything or drag anything. I have used several mice, no change. It all works okay when I safe-boot (restart holding down the shift key) but after regular start-up, it doesn't work anymore. Is this a virus?

Intel Mac :: Writing/playing Double Layer DVDs?

Jun 3, 2012

My Imac has recently began to show some problems with Dual layers DVDs that I did not experience before. It doesn't burn any DVD9 anymore. Even worse, I can not play any DVD9 I'd burnt on the same drive before, because they are constantly ejected, while before that (till 1-2 months ago) I had no problem with the same discs. With retail dvds or dvd5s (+R or -R). Does it mean that my DVD drive has become defective?

Intel Mac :: Clicking When Starting Up Or Waking Up

May 12, 2012

I recently replaced my internal hard drive in my 20" iMac and it worked beautifully for about a week.Then, suddenly it started making a horrible clicking noise upon startup or when waking up from sleep.It goes on for about 10 minutes and then eventually tapers off and quiets down.But it happens every time I start up the computer or when I wake it up after it's been asleep for a while.I don't seem to be having any other problems with the functionality of the computer.Everything is accessible and working OK on the computer.I am just worried because many years back when I had a PC the internal hard drive failed after I heard a similar clicking noise, although it's been going on for a few weeks on my Mac without worsening, and my PC hard drive failed within a couple of days of the start of the clicking.

Is it possible that this is a fan or some other internal mechanism that possibly got jarred or moved slightly when I replaced the hard drive?Or a bad hard drive?I don't really want to open up the computer all over again but at this point, I suppose I have to.I am just not sure what to look for when I do.urls...
