Question about BenQ Joybook 5100U Notebook
I just bought a toshiba satellite notebook. The touchpad scrolling was working but now its not. Did i disable it, and if so how do i fix it???
Check to see that the program is still installed that manages that feature:
If it still exists, you need to run that EXE to get scrolling back. To make sure this happens automatically at start-up, add a shortcut to the "StartUp" menu of Programs\All Users, or run msconfig and ensure it is enabled in the Startup section.
If it does not exist, you need to reinstall dual-pointing device (or whatever touchpad you have) from the Toshiba website, for your specific PC.

Go to your control panel and in your Devices and Printers click Mouse. It pulls up your mouse properties. Go into your Device Settings and double click on the name of your device. If you look in the list "Scrolling" should be your second item down. Click on the + sign in front of that and click on One-Finger Scrolling. If your boxes aren't checked for Enable Vertical/Horizontal scrolling, check them and click apply. If you are unable to check them, then cancel out of this window and click on the tab of the Mouse Properties that says Hardware. Double click on your device name. The properties to your touchpad should appear. Click on the tab that says Driver. I clicked on the box that says "Roll Back Driver" and then after that was complete clicked on the box that states "Update Driver". Click OK. Then click to Search automatically for updated driver software". It will ask you to restart your computer. Once you've restarted your computer you need to go back into the mouse device settings from the control panel and make sure those 2 boxes to enable the scroll are checked. If they are not, it should let you enable them now and then make sure you click apply. Mine works like a dream now. Very weird how the drivers to my brand new computer were corrupted though. It probably had something to do with me plugging in an external mouse for a bit. Anyway. Try that! It worked!

I have a Satellite which stopped scrolling when I turned off some services in MSCONFIG startup tab (start menu> run msconfig.exe). I restarted them one by one to try to identify the service which scrolls. Tuned out to be the SynTPEnh which presumably is a program which enhances the touch pad functionality (by Synaptics).

I have the same problem. My notebook type is Satellyte A200-1UP.
My scrolling worked for a couple of months, but suddently stopped working. After I formatted my notebook, and afterwards the scrolling worked again.
After a week it did not scroll any more..
Appoint.exe does not excist in my notebook. I do have a Apoint.exe file, but that does not make my scroll work again.
I try to get in contact with Toshiba, but I can't find any mailadress to get in contact with someone at a helpdesk..
Anyone who has any solutions?? They're welcome..

Ive been battling this problem for a year now. downloaded so many different drivers from different versions but I downloaded the oldest driver on toshibas lattop, which must have been the original driver with the computer/touchpad called the ALPS touchpad driver for vista, and IT FIXED EVERYTHING, NOW I CAN SCROLL WITH MY TOUCHPAD :)

Toshiba Satellite A200 (win7)
I've reinstalled several Synaptics drivers but scrolling was still not working. Then put on an Alps and it's been back on.

A service is messed up. On windows XP go to control panel / administrative tools / services. From the list select "wtouch services" and restart the service.

For Toshiba Satellite L310 you need to use Alps Touch Pad driver to enable it to work with Scrolling... http://www.toshiba-india.com/Support/doc/L310_XP_Touchpad_Driver_Alps.zip

At some point in the neverending stream of Internet Explorer updates, the scroll feature stopped working on my Compaq Presario X1000 laptop with Synaptics touchpad. It works in Firefox and other apps, just not IE (I'm now using IE ver. 8.0, but it hasn't worked for the last couple of versions).
Didn't want to reinstall or roll back the driver (version 18.104.22.168 15Jul03) , this workaround worked for me instead:
Start -> Control Panel -> Printers and Other Hardware -> Device Settings -> Settings Button -> Virtual Scrolling, select "Scroll Item Under Pointer".
Now as long as the pointer is over the web page, scroll works flawlessly. For some reason, the "Scroll Selected Item" setting doesn't work, my guess is it's related to IE's tabbed browsing... an open tab isn't recognized as the selected window.

I have this problem on my Asus eee PC 1005P -- the two-finger scrolling (but not the one-finger scrolling) has suddenly stopped. But it seems to be within Windows 7 (Starter) -- that is, it works just fine on the start-up page when you log in, but not once you're in Windows 7. Does anyone know if that makes a difference??

Toshiba A200 Satellite laptop - about 3 months old. Did an update and boom - touchpad won't scroll. Did some googling and came here. After several attempts and nothing working I was able to choose 'revert back to old driver' in the mouse options and ta da... it's all working well again :)

Un-click the horizontal and vertical scrolling button and click Apply down at the bottom and it is disabled. YAY!

You will need to install the WIndows 7 drivers for your touchpad from HP. I have recently been on HP's site and find VERY few Win-7 drivers for any of the older machines.
