Probably need a driver or at least an updated driver.

Also go into the control panel and see if there is an icon for the touchpad... double-click on that icon and look for settings to enable the scroll pad.

Go to control panel -> Mouse -> "Device Settings" tab (has the synaptics logo to the left of it) -> Select your touchpad -> "Settings" -> expand "Scrolling" -> "One-finger Scrolling" -> uncheck "Enable Vertical Scrolling" and also uncheck "Enable horizontal scrolling"

If you don't have "Device settings" in the mouse setting window, then you need to install the drivers from http://www.synaptics.com/support/drivers

there is a key combination that enables/disables the touch pad. it's the Fn key + the function key that shows a little mouse icon in blue at the top of your keyboard. on Fujitsu this would be Fn+F6 for instance. if this doesn't work, it is possible that the touch pad has been turned off in the BIOS setup. you will have to enter the BIOS and enable or automate the "internal pointing device"
