SOURCE: touch pad scroll problem

Go to this page:

On this page, choose your operating system and then choose input device drivers.

Then go ahead and download the synaptics driver for your laptop. This software is for your touchpad and should enable the scrolls to work again.

SOURCE: touch pad scroll bar not working

You say it has been restored so I assume that Windows has been re-installed. If so then it is probably using the generic Windows touchpad driver and you need to update to the specific touchpad driver. Go to HP Website and download the touchpad drivers.

SOURCE: scroll bar in my touch pad is not working

Go to control panel then mouse properties and see if it needs to be reconfigured. Sometimes they just change on their own if you are using a mouse as well as the touch pad, remove the mouse (device), then reinstall the Synaptics touch pad software and try setting it up. You may have to turn on that function in touchpad control settings.You can reinstall the touchpad driver, be sure though that it's for your laptop's model.

The scroll bar in my laptops' touch pad isn't working.


The scroll on your laptop is controlled by the trackpad installed on the system.

If you are having problems with the scroll on your laptop's trackpad, there is something you can do before you take it into a computer repair shop.


Updating the driver to the trackpad will enable the scroll if it is not working at all.

Once the driver is updated, your scroll should work again.


You can access the driver through the Device Manager on your laptop.


Click the "Start" button, then click the "Search" option.


Type "Device Manager" into the search bar and press the "Enter" button.

Click on the "Device Manager" icon from the menu, then scroll down to the "Track Pad" icon on the left side of the screen.


Click on the icon, then click the "Driver" tab at the top of the window. Click the "Update" driver option from the window.


Wait for the new driver to install on your computer.


This should take about two minutes to complete.

A window will appear telling you that the driver has been installed.


Put your fingers on the touchpad to move the mouse around on the screen.


Hope this helps.

I have a scrolling bar on my laptop touchpad. gateway 7330gz. i recently had the OS upgraded and want to set the scrolling to work


Hello,

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.

Scroll bar on asus mouse pad not working


Try removeing any external devices and reboot the unit.
Next, look at your device manager for flags..
Remove any if shown in manager.
Restart the unit.
If you still don't have control of the scroll bar, try booting into safe mode and see if you have control their.
If you still do not have control of the scroll bar, try reloading the drivers for the mouse and touch pad.
Buy any chance do you have a mouse lock or switch on the unit that may be on.
I know, on the center of my touch pad, I have a switch to engage and dis-engagae.

Scoll bar action on touchpad works outside the scroll area


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.
