there are times when my trackpad wont click. Is there a reason why?

ZeldaAwesome - Antwoord

This often happens due to a swollen battery. It bumps up against the bottom of the trackpad, preventing it from clicking down. It tends to get worse over time. If removing the battery allows your trackpad to click normally, or if the battery is visibly swollen, replace your battery right away.

Jeff Suovanen -

When I reinstall my trackpad, there is too much "play" or too much room for clicking. It seems like the set screw is screwed in farther than it was originally, and it still doesn't seem to be enough. Also, the mouse isn't working; it won't move, and the click doesn't cause any action. What did I do wrong?
