Unless someone with that specific model or similar can answer your post I would consider calling HP's support phone number. Im sure they can assist you or find out if its faulty and get you a replacement.

Hi, I have a Compaq Presario CQ56 & the scroll area on my mouse pad isn't working. Can this area be turned off and if so, is there a way to turn it back on/unlock it?


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

Good day.

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

I have a problem with my laptop, my scroll thing won't work in the touch pad, i need help?


The touchpad in those units is made by a company called Synaptics. Go to this page and download the drivers for your operating system. http://www.synaptics.com/support/drivers
You will also need to go to Start, Control Panel, Mouse, and set the zones on your touchpad. My guess is after the driver install, you will find the scroll zone is set too small and need sto be adjusted.

Scroll on toucpad not working


Hello,

the update is the cause of the problem. You need to restore your system back to the point when your touch pad was working.

Go to start menu, to Accessories to System tools, to system restore.

Perform the system restore and that should help solve the problem.

Take care.

I dont understand where the scroll zone is on my hp mini. Is it actually on the touch pad, and if so where?


If it is on your touch pad it will be indicated with a small vertical bar, on the right hand side. Slide along that to scroll.

If it doesn't work, then the laptop doesnt have one, and you'll have to use the scroll bar at the side of a web page. (double tap but keep hold on the second tap, this indicates holding down a click) then move up or down as required.

Hope this helps,

Andy

Vertical scrolling not working


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!

Xps 1530 touch pad scroll vertical horizental does not work on


What you need to do is install all the software that is included with the Dell XPS drivers and utilities cd. You also have a software there that is for your touchpad. What you need there is either the quickset or the synaptic itouch software. If you could not find it from the disk.. go to support.dell.com and download the drivers and utilities from there.
