My scrollbar will not work. I can use my touchpad just right and right click and left click, but I cannot scroll on a page I have to use my arrow keys, how do I fix this?


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.
Scroll Is Not Working With Windows 7 b> Certain computer touchpads have a vertical section on the pad itself that is used to scroll through the page or program window that you are currently viewing on your computer. If the scroll functionality suddenly stops working but the actual touchpad is still fine, this means that the part of the software for the device that controls the ability to use the scroll has been disabled. You can enable it again in the Control Panel.
Click "Start." Click "Control Panel." Click "Mouse." Select the "Enable Scroll" option (or whatever similarly named option is available on your specific model of laptop computer). Click "Apply." The scroll bar on your touchpad will now work again.

How do i turn on the scrolling on my acer laptop


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

The easiest and fastest way to fix this problem is to go to Acers website. This link is to the drivers page where you can download http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers. Install the synaptics touchpad drivers. This should fix the issue you have.

On my hp 6735b laptop I would like to turn off the scroll zone on the touch pad if possible.


You don't specify what system are you using. In Windows you have to go to Control Panel, Mouse and Pointing Device properties, and find your touchpad options there, including the scroll areas.
If it's not there, chances are there is a separate application, either in Control Panel, or in the Start Menu, for setting up the touchpad. You can also look in the system tray beside the clock - often there's an icon there for the pointing device.

The touchpad of my msi pr400x stopped functioning


You should makes sure you have the touchpad enabled. This is usually Fn F5 or whatever key is assigned to the touchpad. This is indicated on the F1-12 keys by a little blue icon. Hold the Fn key, and hit the corresponding key. Check to see if it turns back on. If the touchpad still doesnt work, you've got a hardware problem.

Finger scroll not functioning. Is there possible


This is a common problem with touchpads. You should update the drivers for the touchpad on the laptop manufacturer's website, or if you are sure you have the most recent drivers (You shouldn't be, unless you updated them yesterday) then try this:

(WinXP)
Go to the Control Panel and click Printers and Other Hardware, then Mouse near the bottom. Since there are so many Touchpad devices with different settings this is about as far as I can help you here, there may be a tab on the far right side leading to more settings. You should poke around in here being careful not to change anything unrelated to Virtual Scrolling, or just Scrolling in general.

(Win Vista/7)
Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Mouse
There may be a tab on the far right side of the window at the top.
Click this tab and goto Settings, if it exists. In the new window you may see several options, look for anything related to Scrolling. Mine shows "Virtual Scrolling". Click that, and make sure the check box "Enable vertical scrolling" is checked.

If you don't see any of these things, update your drivers and try again..

It sounds like your scroll lock key is stuck on. Press the Function key and the scroll lock key at the same time and this sound turn off the permanent scroll lock.
