    For some reason, both the left and right buttons on my brother's Toshiba Satellite u400 right click. I just did a complete format, and it's still the same. Could it be a hardware issue? I've never seen such a thing. I doubt it's software, because I doubt there's even an option to enable both of them to be right-clicks at the same time?

    Could be software... is the right driver installed? Check to see that all is aligned in those options.

    If hardware related, is a piece of dirt/crumbs pressing both buttons down no matter which button is pressed? Try some compressed air to see if it dislodges quickly?

    If the contacts are simply worn out... time for a replacement touchpad assembly.
