Question about Computers & Internet
Scroll moves a little bit each time the touchpad is tapped but stops in between instead of continuing like my other laptop (Acer)
Different laptop uses different type of touch pads. If your's an old laptop, that may not have a scroll function by simply sliding your finger through the right edge(top to bottom and vise versa) to scroll to a desired level. A new laptop has all these functions. Go to the control panel click on classic view in the left pane in case of xp and vista. Then you can see the mouse icon.click on it and select the device setting tab. then click on setting and a new window will open.There click on scrolling and click on one finger scrolling you can see the scrolling properties. tick mark the vertical and horizontal scrolling boxes. click apply then ok and close all the way. Thats it All done. Hope it helps

I would go to this link and select your device and download the driver/software for your device. Try to reinstall the driver/software.
Fn-F9 is a hot key combination that will enable/disable the touchpad.

I had this problem on my Dell Inspiron 1318, so I went on to their support centre and through the Chat to a technical advisor tool, they uninstalled and reinstalled the driver which controls the touchpad and now the problem is completely gone. I suggest you contact Acer or the customer service of the company that you bought your laptop from and ask them to do something similar. I didn't even need to send my laptop back, Dell were able to take control of my laptop remotely and it only took about an hour in total. Hopefully your provider will be able to offer a similar service.
You may even be able to do this yourself if you can figure out which touchpad driver you need and look on the Acer/laptop maker website support and look at updates for drivers or downloads or something similar. Personally I found using the company's expertise much easier.

Most likely you need to install the driver for your touchpad. The default windows driver allows the touchpad to function but does not give it the extra features such as scrolling. If you go to Acers support site http://support.acer.com/ , you can download the driver for the touchpad. I looked on the site and did not see a 6903 model, did you mean 6930?
Once installed you can go to the control panel, mouse, and see the extra features.
