First, install the touchpad driver, then the computer restarts. When it restarts, and you log back in, there will be a touchpad icon i the lower right corner of the screen. Right click on this new icon and click "Mouse Properties". Now, click on the "Gestures" tab in this window. Now, select the option that says, "Use Scroll Function". Finally, click "Apply" in the lower right corner of the window and your touchpad scroll feature will work again!
P.S. I had the same problem, and this is how i fixed it!

Tap to click does not work dell inspiron 1501

Tap to click is the feature of the touchpad driver. Uninstall any existing touchpad drivers and then restart the computer.
Go to enter the computer service tag and get the drivers for the touchpad from there. Also update the BIOS of your computer to the most recent version. In most cases a part replacement is not needed and the issue should be fixed.

Upgraded hard drive, from 80gb to 250gb. I have had to reload my os twice. it appears that the bios is not recognizing my hd. a friend said that the inspiron 6000 does not do well with a hd bigger then...

I dont think we can use a hard disk of 160gb in an inspiron 6000. and make sure you bought a ATA hard drive and not a SATA drive. For the Western digital try to reinstall XP and install the device drivers before installing application s/w.
