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.

Toshiba Laptop Scroll problems


Hello,

Scrolling is not obvious because there is no area actually marked on the touchpad that shows where it is. Also if you tap the area before doing it, it won't work. Even for me it is hit and miss, since I don't practice with it enough. You could adjust the area that it uses and make it bigger, but then that gets in the way of regular mouse usage.

I would suggest that you try it at a store, and have a sales person show you how to use it.

As for the curser jumping even with that checkmark, well it can. All that checkmark does is turn off the touchpad for a brief moment while oyu are typing. Pause for a second and the touchpad is active again, then slightly bump the touchpad and your mouse will jump. Prove this to yourself by turning off the touchpad entirely with Fn+F9.

In the touchpad settings you can adjust various things to suit you. For example increase the slider for the diable while typing chekmark oyu mentioned, decrease sensitivity, turn off tapping support, etc. Each have thier pros and cons, and that is why they are adjustable.

Also, since you repaired it, I assume they tested it to make sure it was working. And if the touchpad is working, then the jumping adn the scrolling have nothing to do with a hardware problem, it is all software. You can replace hardware till the cows come home and it won't change things. So look at the software settings for scrolling and for "jumping".
This signature left intentionally blank.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

Thanks.

My laptop is an HP dv6000 and all of a sudden the scroll button on my touchpad doesn't work. The touchpad is still working, it's only the scroll button that doesn't work. What should I do??? Please help....


Go to the device manager and look up the mouse. When you open it, there should be a tab at the top that says device settings. Click on this tab, it is for the touchpad. Go through the settings for the touchpad and make sure that scrolling is enabled.

Scroll function on my Toshiba Satellite TouchPad isn't working


I would go to this link and select your device and download the driver/software for your device. Try to reinstall the driver/software.

Note:
Fn-F9 is a hot key combination that will enable/disable the touchpad.
