The scroll pad on the touch pad needs a particular driver Synaptics Pointing Device Driver. This will actually run at the startup after installed which will activate the functionality of scroll on the touch pad. You can also actually turn this function on and off so this is a friendly user. If you do not have that driver that comes with your laptop you can go here: http://www.compaq.com/cpq-country/cpq_support.html or here http://www.synaptics.com/support/drivers
you can activate this by 1. going to the control panel on your vista machine, make sure you are in classic view (2) double click the mouse icon. (3) From here you will select the "Device Settings" tab, (4) make sure your Synaptic Pointing device is highlighted and then click the settings button located directly below the "port" column, this will bring up properties for this device. (5) With all categories in the left hand column collapsed, select "Virtual Scrolling" here is where you will find the box that needs to be checked to enable vertical and/or horizontal scrolling. (6) make sure the "Enable Vertical Scrolling" box is checked. (7) don't forget to hit apply!
almost certainly this means that the drivers for the touchpad have reverted to the windows generic drivers. Try the driver from Compaq here. Sadly, without knowing the OS and exact model number of the laptop I can't be more specific on the link than that. The exact model of the laptop is usually printed on a sticker on the bottom.
