The scroll on your laptop is controlled by the trackpad installed on the system.

If you are having problems with the scroll on your laptop's trackpad, there is something you can do before you take it into a computer repair shop.


Updating the driver to the trackpad will enable the scroll if it is not working at all.

Once the driver is updated, your scroll should work again.


You can access the driver through the Device Manager on your laptop.


Click the "Start" button, then click the "Search" option.


Type "Device Manager" into the search bar and press the "Enter" button.

Click on the "Device Manager" icon from the menu, then scroll down to the "Track Pad" icon on the left side of the screen.


Click on the icon, then click the "Driver" tab at the top of the window. Click the "Update" driver option from the window.


Wait for the new driver to install on your computer.


This should take about two minutes to complete.

A window will appear telling you that the driver has been installed.


Put your fingers on the touchpad to move the mouse around on the screen.


Hope this helps.

SOURCE: touch pad scroll bar not working

You say it has been restored so I assume that Windows has been re-installed. If so then it is probably using the generic Windows touchpad driver and you need to update to the specific touchpad driver. Go to HP Website and download the touchpad drivers.

krishna,
You can try popping them off and blowing the dust accumulated from underneath. If that does not work you may need to replace the keyboard.

Scroll bar in my touch pad is not working


Go to control panel then mouse properties and see if it needs to be reconfigured. Sometimes they just change on their own if you are using a mouse as well as the touch pad, remove the mouse (device), then reinstall the Synaptics touch pad software and try setting it up. You may have to turn on that function in touchpad control settings.You can reinstall the touchpad driver, be sure though that it's for your laptop's model.
