Re: scrolling arrows on my mouse pad on Aspire 5100...
If reinstalling the driver does not work try this:
Go to: control panel > mouse > device settings tab
select synaptics touchpad...
click settings button
select buttons from the menu on the left
ensure that "enable buttons" is checked. If it isn't then this might be your problem.
If applying this change doesn't solve the problem or it is already checked:
click the + and open up the tree menu
choose the desired the desired action for each button displayed("Scroll * button Action")
apply these changes and this should solve the problem

Try restarting your computer by pushing the windows button on the bottom of the keyboard on the left side, generally next to the ALT button. use your arrow keys to move over to the shut down button, select restart and restart your computer. Or you can shut down and then push the power button to start up your computer. This should help reset your laptop and unfreeze your mouse.
If this does not work, go to the control panel, again using the windows button and the arrow keys. select mouse, then go thru the tabs on the window to make sure that your mouse pad is selected to control your mouse.

If you have a manual for the notebook, check to see if you can use the function key and the similarly coloured key on the keyboard which enables/disables the touch pad. Usually you can disable the mouse pointer touch pad with this FUNCTION key + MOUSE key when pressed together. Often these keys have the same colour (usually blue). The purpose is to disable the touch pad when you are using an external USB or wireless mouse, then you press the 2 keys again together to enable the touch pad once you have removed the USB/wireless mouse.
If that doesn't work, borrow a USB mouse and attach it to your notebook to use temporarily while you diagnose the problem.
