Seems like the synaptic touch pad has lost its configuration or got a little whacky.
Go to the control panel, and find the program for the touch pad.
There, try to redefine the areas for the scroll bar action.

SOURCE: toshiba touchpad scrolling
Go to the Classic view of Control Panel...click on Mouse...click on Device Settings...click on the Settings button..it will bring up a new window about Synaptics....click on Virtual Scrolling. Un-click the horizontal and vertical scrolling button and click Apply down at the bottom and it is disabled. YAY!

You need to download your touchpad driver made for your XPS off the dell website. When windows installs, or when you buy a laptop, it doesn't come with the latest drivers.

As you mentioned that you have updated OS, it is possible that the version of installed drivers for the touch pad are not compatible with the new OS.
I suggest you do is you go to the manufacturer's website and download the latest drivers. Most manufacturers offer an online support for the different drivers / software required by the computer.
This link is the direct link to download the latest drivers for your computer:Touchpad Driver
> Click on the link and download the drivers.
> Meanwhile go on Control Panel> Add / Remove Programs and uninstall Synaptics.
> Once the download is complete, launch the newly downloaded driver installation.
> After the installation is complete, restart your computer.
The touch pad should have now recovered all of its features.
Glad to help.

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
