First check if your Synaptics Touchpad is well configured in System Panel ---> Hardware, under "another pointing devices".
If so, then go to Control Panel ---> Mouse ---> Synaptics Touchpad. There you can enable/disable properties.
To get the pad properly setup, you should try to download and install te SP21661 pack from HP/Compaq, that pack comes with all the features you can use, very useful for W2K & WinXP.

Toshiba touch pad scrolls instead of moving cursor


You might be able to disable the scroll function in the mouse settings. Open the control panel, then go to the Mouse icon. There might be a tab that says Device Settings. If so click that and look in Properties.

Is there a way to temporarily disable the scroll function of the touch-pad?


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

Usually a notebok had a lock scroll button right above the touch pad, but the Eee series is a Netbook series so not this case, so we can turn it off with the help of windows settings.

Eee series is loaded with the Linux OS by defualt if you have a Linux based system then;

Nevigate to your Control Panel from Start button then select mouse, click on Touch Pad. There you can see all the settings regarding the Pad, Turning it off as well.

If above is not the case, i.e; you are having a Linux OS then;

Goto Settings, nevigate to Touchpad and Set Touchpad as "disable".

I hope this will help you out. Even if you are having issues, questions, queries regarding your problem, do contact me.

Concerned, Nooh.

I recently deleted some old files and temp files to free up disc space and when i rebooted, the scroll on the right side of the mouse pad is not working the buttons are and the double click function is too...


Hi,
The files in temp folder can be safely deleted and have nothing to do with touch pad atleast. Something else might have gone wrong. Just check from the Device Manager or Control Pannel that the drivers for touch pad are installed. If so, check for the scroll option (synaptics touch pad utility) and set it accordingly.
If it doesn't work, you may download and reinstall the touch pad drivers again from the manufacturers support site.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

When i use my touch pad on my brand new Gateway just to use my mouse it does other functions such as zooming or scrolling up/down. There is no divider on my touch pad so when i go to use my touch pad it...


There are some things you should do on your own:

1) Gather information. You need to know your Gateway model and S/N, Windows version (XP, Vista, 7, 32bit or 64bit)
To check windows version: Right-click My Computer or Computer from Start menu, choose properties. You should be able to see the Windows version here

2) Go to Gateway website:
http://support.gateway.com/support/default.aspx?cmpid=topnav_support
Click on the "Notebooks" tab and input your S/N.

3) Scroll down to "Touchpad Drivers" section and download the latest driver for your model. Be sure to save the file where you can find it.

4) Install the new driver. It may be helpful to uninstall the old driver first: Start>>Right-click (My)Computer >> Manage >> In left pane, Device Manager >> In Right Pane, click plus sign next to, Mice and Other pointing devices >> Right -click the touchpad and click Uninstall, be sure to check the box, "Remove Software".

See if this gets better. If not, the touchpad/Palm rest needs to be replaced, but getting Gateway to do it (sounds like they tried) may be tough.

At least if you install the new driver, you may be able to disable it permanently, and then use a wireless mouse (which usually is much nicer anyway).

Happy computing!
