I have a Presario CQ50-130US. On the right of the touchpad, there are two scroll-lines. Great. But now they dont work. Is there a switch, or a software solution, or do I have to take it back for replacement

If you are using Windows Vista, as I think.. check for Synaptics driver (its usually an icon of a touchpad near the clock in the taskbar) if its not there chances are that you dont have it installed.

You can grab it from here ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp39501-40000/sp39534.exe

once you install it go to the software and set the properties of the scroll lines (on - off - speed, etc)

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.

Hi there. My entire scroll pad/finger pad for my e730 stopped working the other day. I have restarted it several times, with no help.


I think it's a driver problem. Do the following;
1. Open "Control Panel" 2. Expand the "Mice and Other Pointing Device" 3. Uninstall your Touchpad from the menu by right-clicking on it. 4. After that, right-click on "Mice and Other Pointing Device" 5. Click "Scan for Hardware Changes" and it wait for your computer to automatically ddetect your touchpad and reinstall it.
Try using the touchpad.

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"

1. Uninstall Unneeded Programs (Start, Settings, Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs) Keeps at least 10% of your HDD free, 20% is preferred. Windows uses this space for it's swapfile.
2. Scan Your Hard Disk for Errors. (Double-Click MY COMPUTER, Right Click C:, Properties, TOOLS TAB)
3. Scan for Viruses (If you don't have an updated and functional AV, http://free.grisoft.com)
4. Check for Spyware and Adware (http://www.download.com, Spybot search and destroy)
5. Defragment Your Hard Drive (Double-Click MY COMPUTER, Right Click C:, Properties, TOOLS TAB)
6. Adjust Visual Effects for Better Performance (Right-Click the MY Computer Icon, Properties, Advanced TAB)
7. Stop Programs from starting on Windows boot (Start, RUN, MSCONFIG)


If you touchpad isn't scrolling, then the touchpad driver either isn't installed or the MSCONFIG startup line has been disabled.

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!
