    Do you see anything when you hover your curser over them.
    Like battery shows 100% charged
    On Wi-Fi tells me what I am connected to
    Volume shows my USB Headphone 100%
    Same with the others you have menstioned

    Looks like your left click is not working.
    Have you installed the latest drivers for your model laptop.
    Can you get hold of a cheap USB mouse and see if it works that way.
    If your right click works
    Right click Start Button
    Then go to device manager
    Then Right Click
    Mice and other pointing devices
    Then left click
    What opens up
    Which will open up the drivers part
    in there is where you can see to update your driver
    If Acer does not have one and Microsoft one should hopefully do

    the problem is not with the mouse but only with the systray icons

    How long ago since this happened.
    Did it happen since day one ?
    If it happened not too long ago, do a system restore. Pick a date when this did NOT happen as your restore point.
