Scroll bar wont work


This the one on the trackpad?

Make sure the trackpad application (not just the driver) is installed and running that came with the HP (probably visable as an icon near the clock).
The scrollbar is not a feature of windows (unlike normal mouse operation) and it requires the HP mouse trackpad app to be running.

Describe your HP Pavilion dv9000z 17" Notebook Laptop PC PC Notebook Problem my internal mouse is locked, I dont know why and dont know how to fix it (I dont use an external mouse or keyboard). ...


Hi melissamhahn..
Try this solution to your problem
*************************************
To fix an unresponsive touchpad on your laptop, reactivate it by using the Function key on the keyboard and the Fn key.

This process is different for each computer manufacturer.
If unsure which Function key enables and disables the touchpad, try each one at a time and then
attempt to use the touchpad after each one.

A...Locate the "Fn" key of the laptop keyboard.
The "Fn" key has different colored text or the key is a different color.
B...Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.
The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.
C...Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key at the same time to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.
Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works. Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.
Note: Mac computers use "F2" to enable and disable the touchpad.
D. Sony Vaio Users: Start>Settings>Control Panel>Double click the Mouse icon.
Look at the top left hand side of the page, at the top and make sure that the "Tapping" box is unchecked, if it is checked then, you will uncheck it.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

My mouse pad is not functioning properly. It won't let me select items - it does its own thing. What can I do?


I would try reinstalling the drivers for it. You can find it by right clicking on the my computer icon and selecting properties and then click device manager and look for the icon. Once there you can update driver. If not go to ho's website and download the driver there and install. Hope this helps.

HP Pavilion tx 2000 touchpad problems


Ok,The setting for the touch pad are not in the mouse settings,They are in the pen and input settings.

Just go to the control panel and select Pen and Input setting and adjust as needed.

Also with Vista,Windows tries to control everything,so you may need to un install the mouse drivers and allow windows to take control,It will not prevent the touch pad from working,It just stops it from being controlled by the touch pad driver and the windows mouse driver ar the same time.

HP Pavilion Entertainment PC - scrollbar on mouse pad not working


I think I can help you. I need to know what kind of mouse driver you are using. To find out click on the control panel, click on mouse properties, click on device settings. Under devices it should show Enabled/Name/Port. Under Enabled it should say Yes. Under Name should give the name of the device being used and under Port it may or may not show anything. Ex. Yes /Synaptic TouchPad V7.2 / Port/2. If this is what yours shows, double click on the highlighted device and a menu will come up. From there you can reactivate your scrollbar. If yours does not show a device in the list, sometimes it will show where to go to download the device in the bottom righthand corner. EX:(www.synaptics.com) If not, you will have to find the name of your device. Hope this helps. Tim
