Thank you mewms_14904. The problem was the F key. In my case it was F7 that enables and disables the glide pad of my notebook.By pressing fn key and then F7 solved my case.

SOURCE: touch pad scroll problem

Go to this page:
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INSPIRONI6400/E1505&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

On this page, choose your operating system and then choose input device drivers.

Then go ahead and download the synaptics driver for your laptop. This software is for your touchpad and should enable the scrolls to work again.

SOURCE: My touch pad for Lenovo

It most likely has something conductive around the edges. Clean the pad with a cloth or paper towel that has 99% isopropyl alcohol on it. Use something like a toothpick to push the cloth or paper right into the edges. Once it is clean, and completely dry, try again. If it still doesn't work you may need to check the connection inside the laptop.

Sounds like the touch pad may be bad or isn't installed.If you look under hardware and it installed then most likely the touch pad may be bad.

Compaq notebook laptop: my mouse pointer or arrow is


If you have a manual for the notebook, check to see if you can use the function key and the similarly coloured key on the keyboard which enables/disables the touch pad. Usually you can disable the mouse pointer touch pad with this FUNCTION key + MOUSE key when pressed together. Often these keys have the same colour (usually blue). The purpose is to disable the touch pad when you are using an external USB or wireless mouse, then you press the 2 keys again together to enable the touch pad once you have removed the USB/wireless mouse.

If that doesn't work, borrow a USB mouse and attach it to your notebook to use temporarily while you diagnose the problem.

It depends, do you know if there is an icon down in the taskbar near the clock that has options for your mouse, if there is then you would double click that and there should be options in there.
