Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

1 Answer

Mouse/scrolling problem Hello, Recently my laptop started to scroll to the bottom of a screen and will not allow scrolling to the top again. It holds that screen in the bottom position. It is a Toshiba laptop with a vista. It was working perfectly until my son downloaded updates. Then it simply quit allowing normal scrolling. I can operate on any page that does not have any extension to it. Any help would be greatly appreciated?

Screen keeps scrolling


usually screens will scroll like that if you have accidentally pushed down on the middle mouse button - you will see a circle with a double ended arrow in it. Moving the mouse in any direction will make the page scroll up or down indefinitely until you deactivate the scroll or move your mouse to the centre of the screen where page stops scrolling but is still active.

No respond on cursor


make sure batteries have power and have secure seating
or it might be the usb for wireless mouse or lead connecting to the usb port or even a faulty mouse
if this does not fix the problem

restart you computer tap the f8 key repeatedly to enter safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you an attempt to repair your computer


click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to mice and other pointing devices you might see a yellow exclamation mark ! or question mark ? or a red x
right click you will need to update the driver

click start control panel mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons,pointers,pointer options and hardware under hardware you have options to troubleshoot also you can select properties under driver you will have options to update driver,rollback driver or uninstall also

I have found that the best way to adjust your mouse settings is to create a control panel in your bottom toolbar scroll to the bottom of your screen right click you will see an array of options select the toolbar option then select desktop

then you will see the desktop in the bottom toolbar select the 2 arrows then all control panel items then select mouse this is in WINDOWS 7

in XP you will have to select the new toolbar option once you have that a browse option select my computer then control panel then a control panel option will be in the bottom toolbar

hope this helps

My scroll keys at the touchpad of my laptop won't work but the touchpad is working..


Have you tried going into the control panel to check the settings.
1. click on the start menu then on the right side of the panel click on control panel.
2. Go to the mouse Icon/Description then click on the advanced settings tab at the top far right.
3. You should find touch pad settings in here that will allow you to activate or deactivate the scroll functions or at the very least allow you to reset the settings to their default configuration.

Myweb page opens to large . I would like it to return to its normal size.kindly advise.


if the mouse has a scroller button on top, open a web page, hold down the CTRL key on the keyboard, and use the mouse scroll button to scroll down slowly to make the web page fonts smaller. Alternately, click the VIEW menu on top of Internet Explorer if it is what you use, select text size and change the size to medium or smaller, then close and re-open the browser.

How do I adjust web page to fit display screen


There is the Zoom option in the View menu if you are using IE. You can set it to 100%. With IE8 you can use F11 to set it to display on full screen. Unless you need to set the screen resolution, width and height for your monitor, those should work for you. Pressing Ctrl key and scrolling your mouse will adjust the zoom of web page too, quicker way.

Can not scroll on lap top pad


Is your pad scroll capable? Not all are. If it is, have you enabled it in the mouse settings via control panel? The default mode for some pads is non-scrolling and you have to manually enable this function. Also, some pads have small areas where the scroll works. Usually along the right and bottom edges of the pad. Anywhere else = no scroll.

Hi David. You might also try holding down the ctrl button while you roll the scroll bar on your mouse, This will increase/decrease the size of the content in a variety of programs like Firefox, Internet Explorer, Word, and Excel.

Thanks for using FixYa!
