Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have lost the ability to scroll using the right vertical edge of the touch pad. Otherwise the pad works fine but it is annoying not being able to scroll any more without moving the cursor to the 'scroll bar' at the edge of the window.

The option to enable or disable the scrolling option for the notebook touchpad is generally available by going to the Control Panel, then selecting Mouse. Within that area, go to Device Settings, select the touchpad from the list of available devices, then click Settings. There should be an option for "virtual scrolling" - click on it, and you should be given the options to turn on or off both horizontal and vertical scrolling for the touchpad control.

Touchpad Scrolling


The scrolling feature on a laptop touchpad can take some getting used to, which causes some users to disable the feature.
Whether scrolling was intentionally turned off or never enabled on the laptop, it can easily be turned on from the "Mouse Properties" menu.

Click "Start" (or the Windows logo button in Vista and Windows 7) and select "Control Panel." Select "Classic View" in Vista if not already displayed. Double click "Mouse."
You may also access "Mouse Properties" in Vista and Windows 7 by clicking the Windows logo and typing "Mouse" in the search box.
Press "Enter," then click "Mouse" when the search is finished.
Select the "Hardware" tab.
Select the touchpad and click "Properties."
Click "Change Settings" if the settings aren't displayed.
Click the "Device Settings" tab in Windows 7 and select the touchpad.
Click "Settings."
Click "Virtual Scrolling" in the touchpad properties window.
Click the boxes next to each "Enable Scrolling" box and click "OK." Scrolling is now turned on for your touchpad.

My touchpad mouse has stopped scrolling otherwise it works


the scroll in a touch pad has nothing to do with the touch pad. It is the software that handles it. If you know what software or drivers you need, try reinstalling it. I can't help you to much with that part. All I know is that your pad is perfectly fine.

This looks like u have trouble with drivers, if u familiar with drivers then try to follow this link http://www.acer.com/public/home.jsp look for support and Downloads - Downloads - in Bios utilities & applications select ur Location - Driver Downloads - Select ur model - look for Touch Pad Drivers.  

If the above is difficult to follow up try using ur recovery disc, which came with ur Laptop.

Touch pad's function of scrolling vertically and horizontally is not working. All the other functions are fine.


The touch pad drive needs to be installed. XP will provide basic function support for a touchpad,. Advanced features require the specific discrete driver from the manufacturer
