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 want to turn off the scrolling function on the touchpad. The pad is too small for this function and it gets in the way of trying to move the mouse around


To disable the scroll function go to mouse properties;click device settings;click settings;expand overview;and you will see the scroll option, that's where you can disable it.

Hope this works.

Hi sheki_68,

If you have disabled the Scrolling Feature of the Touchpad, you will need to re-enable for the function to work correctly. You can enable the Touchpad Setting from the Control Panel, Mouse Options.
  1. Click the Start button and then click Control Panel .
  2. In the Control Panel window, click Hardware and Sound .
  3. In the Hardware and Sound window, click Mouse .
  4. In the Mouse Properties window, click the Function tab.
  5. To enable the Scroll function, click to check the box next to Use Scroll Function.
  6. Click the OK button and then close the Hardware and Sound window.
This should re-enable the Scrolling Feature of the Touchpad. If the Function is not available in the Mouse Properties window, you may need to re-install the Touchpad Driver in the Computer to fix it.

Good Luck!

Hope this helps.

Please post back if you require further assistance.

Thanks for using FixYa.

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:
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!
