Question about Computers & Internet

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.

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.

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.

Xps 1530 touch pad scroll vertical horizental does not work on


What you need to do is install all the software that is included with the Dell XPS drivers and utilities cd. You also have a software there that is for your touchpad. What you need there is either the quickset or the synaptic itouch software. If you could not find it from the disk.. go to support.dell.com and download the drivers and utilities from there.

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.

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
