Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad 380ED ?

No mouse right click context menu.

\015 I got this little gem back from a friend of mine, who I had given it to (totally computer illiterate) who then gave it to his Mom (worse than computer illiterate) with a dead CMOS battery. I replaced the CMOS battery and reset the time and date and she fired right up. The problem I am having is that I have NO right click context menu. His Mom had the mouse set up as left handed and I finally got it changed back to right handed, but still no right click results. Left click works fine. This is a head scratcher. Can anyone tell me how to go about trouble shooting this? Is the problem in the initial setup (enter before Windows boots)? I am running Win 98, plain wrapper...NO SE or ME. Seems I had this sort of problem on an XP machine and fixed it with a ''repair'' load of the XP OS. Can't do that with 98. The problem in the XP rig was centered around a shell 32 error that I can't recall. Any help?\015
