SCROLL PAD SOLUTION THAT WORKED FOR ME!!!

Well what I did was I went to CONTROL PANEL, went to the HARDWARE AND DEVICES, went to the DEVICE MANAGER which has a list of Devices. I found the MOUSE DEVICE on the list, right clicked it went to PROPERTIES go to the DRIVER TAB, and then click on ROLL BACK DRIVER. Restart your computer. and then repeat everything again. CONTROL PANEL>DEVICES>MOUSE>PROPERTIES>DRIVER TAB when u get back to the driver tab of your mouse device. click on UPDATE DRIVER. It will then find the driver automatically reinstall it for you and then restart your computer. HOPE this fixes your scroll pad. It did for me.

@ scroll pad not working Makek sure you have your touchpad driver running. Sometimes it gets turned off from the startup. Open msconfig from commandline and check the startup. If its not ticked, tick it and restart.

Hope this helps

I could solve by this method. double click the tochpad icon from system tray icon or click mouse icon from control panel. so that mouse/touch pad configuration window appears. now go to device settings and click touchpad there. you will find numrous properties there. and not only vertical but horizontal scrolling is also possible now. This option was so weired and invisible.

The touch mouse will scroll and move but won't click.


you might have to reset it
Most modern laptops with touchpads offer vertical scrolling, horizontal scrolling or both. These features are located along the right-hand and bottom edges of the touchpad, respectively, and are activated when you swipe your finger along the touchpad edge. Scrolling functionality is nearly always enabled by default, but some users find the feature an annoyance and elect to turn it off. In most cases you can simply turn the feature back on using the Windows Control Panel.

Click the Windows Start button, select "Settings," and then click "Control Panel." Double-click the icon labeled "Mouse." Select the Touchpad properties tab. The labeling of this tab varies, depending on your computer manufacturer, operating system version and the device drivers installed on your machine. Common labels include "Touch Pad," "Device Settings" and "Dell Touchpad." If you do not see this option, you may not be able to turn on scrolling for your laptop; skip the remaining steps and refer to the "Warnings" section below. Click the "Settings" button within the Touchpad Properties menu and look for the section labeled "Scrolling Settings" or similar. Enable scrolling within this section and define other scroll settings, such as scroll zone width and scrolling speed. Click "OK" to confirm your changes, and then close the Control Panel windows opened in the previous steps. The scrollbar on your laptop is now enabled.

HP 2530p EliteBook - touchpad stopped working. Scrolling works except touch scrolling on right side of pad) and right button, but that's all. Wireless mouse works fine.


To access Mouse Properties, select Start - Control Panel - Hardware and Sound -Mouse.

Use Mouse Properties in Windows to customize settings for pointing devices, such as button configuration, click speed, and pointer options.

Acer Aspire 5102 I've reinstalled win 7 on my acer,and now my touchpad scroll button between left and right buttons don't work.how can i fix that?


Hi! Just head over to this page and select the "Synaptics Pointing Driver" under Drivers and Utilities for Windows Vista. It seems Acer doesnt provide drivers for Windows 7 (possibly because the laptop does not come with it pre-installed) however the Vista ones should work fine. As this is a reinstall, I suggest downloading and installing all the software, at least all of the ones under Drivers and Utilities to ensure that all of your notebook's features function properly.

I have installed the windows 7 ultimate edition in my acer aspire 2930. the touchpad scroll doesn't work. what might be the solution.


I had the exact same problem after upgrading to windows 7 32 bit Home Premium on my Acer 3680 series laptop. After researching the problem at both the Acer site and the touchpad manufacturer's site, I discovered that sometimes Windows 7 doesn't support all features of older touchpads and there is no solution for this problem (which I like, anyway).

The drivers for the original touchpad are not always supported by Windows 7, which say, for instance, worked in Vista.

I tried emulation mode, etc., but the scroll buttons didn't work after updating to windows 7.

So, I just gave up and tried to adapt to the new operating system/touchpad function.

Good luck on this one.

Zen Touch 40GB Scroll Problem.


There is a circuit board under the touchpad that has probably gone bad. You should purchase a Zen Touch with some other problem like bad hard drive or broken screen, but that has a working touchpad, and swap the outer body for the working one.
