Go to control panel -> Mouse -> "Device Settings" tab (has the synaptics logo to the left of it) -> Select your touchpad -> "Settings" -> expand "Scrolling" -> "One-finger Scrolling" -> uncheck "Enable Vertical Scrolling" and also uncheck "Enable horizontal scrolling"

If you don't have "Device settings" in the mouse setting window, then you need to install the drivers from http://www.synaptics.com/support/drivers

Scroll bar not working all of the sudden. I use firefox and has never been an issue for my pavilion before. I did use a public wi-fi at a hospital briefly and had to use IE because firefox never works in...


First, lets make sure that scrolling is still enabled. Look in the bottom right of the taskbar and see if your synaptics icon for the touchpad properties is there. It will either look like the touchpad or it will be a red icon in the shape of a tear drop. If it is there, right click on it and scroll to properties. If it is not there, go to the control panel and click on mouse properties. When the mouse properties window opens, look on the top right hand side and look for the tab marked device properties, click on this tab...this is for the touchpad settings and controls. When this window opens, look in the left hand pane and scroll down to "scrolling", see if the box is checked to enable scrolling....if it is checked, uncheck it, hit apply, then check it again and hit apply again, click ok and exit. Now, if you do not see any of the above and all you see is mouse settings, then the driver for the touchpad has been corrupt and you will need to go to HP support drivers and download a new driver for the touchpad. Go to the link below and put in the model number of your laptop, then in the next window pick your operating system, now, scroll down and find the touchpad driver listed. Download it into a folder on your deskyop, open the file and run it, it will install a fresh driver. Reboot the laptop and all settings will be on by default.

Have a Satellite P 305D-S9800; scoll bar will not pull down by mouse or touch pad; as soon as I let go it jumps back to the top please help


The "Touchpad is very sensitive; if you look while scrolling, the "scroll-bar" will turn (Blue), click on the ("scroll-bar"), until it turn "Gray." Note: "You ca use the Pointer Device / Touchpad without using the Scroll-bar, basically anywhere on the screen; ("bottom scroll-pad" = left to right"), and ("right -side edge scroll-pad = up & down").

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..
