The scroll in a touch pad has nothing to do with the touch pad. It is the software that handles it. If you know what software or drivers you need, try reinstalling it. I can't help you to much with that part. All I know is that your pad is perfectly fine.

Touchpad Scrolling


The scrolling feature on a laptop touchpad can take some getting used to, which causes some users to disable the feature.
Whether scrolling was intentionally turned off or never enabled on the laptop, it can easily be turned on from the "Mouse Properties" menu.

Click "Start" (or the Windows logo button in Vista and Windows 7) and select "Control Panel." Select "Classic View" in Vista if not already displayed. Double click "Mouse."
You may also access "Mouse Properties" in Vista and Windows 7 by clicking the Windows logo and typing "Mouse" in the search box.
Press "Enter," then click "Mouse" when the search is finished.
Select the "Hardware" tab.
Select the touchpad and click "Properties."
Click "Change Settings" if the settings aren't displayed.
Click the "Device Settings" tab in Windows 7 and select the touchpad.
Click "Settings."
Click "Virtual Scrolling" in the touchpad properties window.
Click the boxes next to each "Enable Scrolling" box and click "OK." Scrolling is now turned on for your touchpad.

Hello there. I have a HP 610 laptop and have recently installed Windows 7 to it. Since then, my scrolling pad isn't working. How can i make it scroll again? (:


You have to download an add-on from the available software downloads for your device on the website.
All you need to do is to follow the link below and scroll down to the Driver-keyboard, mouse and input device section.
Download the first file that says Synaptics TouchPad Driver.
After download, install the file and restart your computer. This would help you use your touchpad scroll again.
Hope this was helpful? Please comment for more information and thank you for using FixYa.

Mouse pad not working


A mouse pad is a thing you put your mouse on....

now what you are talking about is your touchpad.

Check these first:

  • some laptops have a switch that turns off the touch pad (usually a button right on the topside of the touchpad)
  • did you reboot completely? full shutdown, then power on?
  • goto the device manager (with a usb mouse of course) and find the touchpad... delete the device... then reboot again it should try and find the touchpad and ask for the driver, point it to the directory that you have the driver located.
good luck!

Scroll on touchpad doesnt work


Using another mouse or your keyboard to reenable the touchpad options can be done either from the taskbar (bottom right there should be an icon.....) or ... from the Control Panel

If that doesn't work, Google the Drivers for your particular laptop 'straight from the brand's website (if it's a dell...... go to dell.com,.......etc.... they can be found under "support"

I have lost the ability to scroll using the right vertical edge of the touch pad. Otherwise the pad works fine but it is annoying not being able to scroll any more without moving the cursor to the 'scroll...


The option to enable or disable the scrolling option for the notebook touchpad is generally available by going to the Control Panel, then selecting Mouse. Within that area, go to Device Settings, select the touchpad from the list of available devices, then click Settings. There should be an option for "virtual scrolling" - click on it, and you should be given the options to turn on or off both horizontal and vertical scrolling for the touchpad control.

My touchpad scrolling won't work on my acer aspire 5610, how do i fix this problem?


Touchpad scrolling is a feature that can be changed in the Control Panel.

Go to Start, Control Panel, and click on "Mouse". You should be able to browse through the tabs and find the options for touch-tapping, scrolling, and other things for your touchpad. Hope this helps!
