    did they upgrade the processor?, if so they may have forgot to plug that back in, otherwise have you checked CONTROL PANEL / SWITCH TO CLASSIC VIEW / MOUSE AND POINTERS or roll the driver back?

Scroll bar


Most modern laptops with touchpads offer vertical scrolling, horizontal scrolling or both. These features are located along the right-hand and bottom edges of the touchpad, respectively, and are activated when you swipe your finger along the touchpad edge. Scrolling functionality is nearly always enabled by default, but some users find the feature an annoyance and elect to turn it off. In most cases you can simply turn the feature back on using the Windows Control Panel.

Click the Windows Start button, select "Settings," and then click "Control Panel." Double-click the icon labeled "Mouse." Select the Touchpad properties tab. The labeling of this tab varies, depending on your computer manufacturer, operating system version and the device drivers installed on your machine. Common labels include "Touch Pad," "Device Settings" and "Dell Touchpad." If you do not see this option, you may not be able to turn on scrolling for your laptop; skip the remaining steps and refer to the "Warnings" section below. Click the "Settings" button within the Touchpad Properties menu and look for the section labeled "Scrolling Settings" or similar. Enable scrolling within this section and define other scroll settings, such as scroll zone width and scrolling speed. Click "OK" to confirm your changes, and then close the Control Panel windows opened in the previous steps. The scrollbar on your laptop is now enabled.
Scroll Is Not Working With Windows 7 b> Certain computer touchpads have a vertical section on the pad itself that is used to scroll through the page or program window that you are currently viewing on your computer. If the scroll functionality suddenly stops working but the actual touchpad is still fine, this means that the part of the software for the device that controls the ability to use the scroll has been disabled. You can enable it again in the Control Panel.
Click "Start." Click "Control Panel." Click "Mouse." Select the "Enable Scroll" option (or whatever similarly named option is available on your specific model of laptop computer). Click "Apply." The scroll bar on your touchpad will now work again.

Touchpad must be continually tapped to make scroll bar scroll up or down


Different laptop uses different type of touch pads. If your's an old laptop, that may not have a scroll function by simply sliding your finger through the right edge(top to bottom and vise versa) to scroll to a desired level. A new laptop has all these functions. Go to the control panel click on classic view in the left pane in case of xp and vista. Then you can see the mouse icon.click on it and select the device setting tab. then click on setting and a new window will open.There click on scrolling and click on one finger scrolling you can see the scrolling properties. tick mark the vertical and horizontal scrolling boxes. click apply then ok and close all the way. Thats it All done. Hope it helps

I have a HP pavillion DV6-1250us Windows vista home premium and i cannot get my mouse to scroll up or down? how do i fix this?


To move the pointer, slide your finger across the TouchPad surface in the direction you want the pointer to go. Use the TouchPad buttons like the corresponding buttons on an external mouse. To scroll up and down using the TouchPad vertical scroll zone (right edge of the touchpad), slide your finger up or down over the lines.

NOTE: If you are using the TouchPad to move the pointer, you must lift your finger off the TouchPad
before moving it to the scroll zone.

I dont understand where the scroll zone is on my hp mini. Is it actually on the touch pad, and if so where?


If it is on your touch pad it will be indicated with a small vertical bar, on the right hand side. Slide along that to scroll.

If it doesn't work, then the laptop doesnt have one, and you'll have to use the scroll bar at the side of a web page. (double tap but keep hold on the second tap, this indicates holding down a click) then move up or down as required.

Hope this helps,

Andy

I have a gateway laptop. At times I have a little wheel that can be used anywhere on the screen to scroll up and down and then it seems to quit working and I have to use the slide bar on the right side of...


Go to the control panel and set up your mouse. If this doesn't fix the problem, take the mouse apart and blow the dust out where the wheels with slots are. There is a small eye that detects movement in the wheels. If that doesn't fix it, the mouse needs replaced.
