Hi, Im having a problem with my mousepad on my Compaq Presario. My vertical scroll bar is picking up in the middle of my mouse pad. I also have a bottom scroll bar that is not working at all. Any suggestions on how to readjust the sensors?

Step 1: The touchpad of Hewlett Packard Compaq notebook computers comes equipped with vertical and horizontal scroll capabilities. Dragging your finger on the top or side of the touchpad will scroll in windows equipped with scrollbars. This feature takes some getting used to if you're used to a regular mouse or a wheel equipped mouse. If you prefer to not have vertical and horizontal scrolling performed from the touchpad, one or both features can be disabled.
Double-click the red Synaptics icon on your task bar. If it's not displaying, open the Control Panel and click on "Mouse" in Windows XP. In Windows Vista/7, type "Mouse" in the search field of the "Start" menu and click on the Mouse result. Click on the "Device Settings" tab and then click on the "Settings" button. The Properties for Synaptics TouchPad dialog box will appear. Click on "Virtual Scrolling" in the "Select an Item" box on the left. Clear one or both scrolling features in the "Virtual Scrolling" section. Click "Apply," and then "OK." b>
there's a button just above the mousepad but usually the problem isn't the button it's the driver or the mousepad is broken. use a usb mouse (they're really cheap) and run windows update until there's nothing left to update. if that doesn't work it's either a loose connection or a faulty touchpad. they aren't the most difficult laptops to repair but if yu're a novide i'd pay someone to do it
Go to the control panel and set up your mouse. If this doesn't fix the problem, take the mouse apart and blow the dust out where the wheels with slots are. There is a small eye that detects movement in the wheels. If that doesn't fix it, the mouse needs replaced.
you can activate this by 1. going to the control panel on your vista machine, make sure you are in classic view (2) double click the mouse icon. (3) From here you will select the "Device Settings" tab, (4) make sure your Synaptic Pointing device is highlighted and then click the settings button located directly below the "port" column, this will bring up properties for this device. (5) With all categories in the left hand column collapsed, select "Virtual Scrolling" here is where you will find the box that needs to be checked to enable vertical and/or horizontal scrolling. (6) make sure the "Enable Vertical Scrolling" box is checked. (7) don't forget to hit apply!
Try connecting an external monitor to the your laptop and see if the vertical line is also present on the monitor. If the monitor display is fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel is defective. If the monitor also displays the vertical line, then your problem is with either the video card or motherboard located inside your laptop.Not sure if the Compaq Presario has an external monitor plug, but if it does the above procedure can be applied to that one as well.
