You would need to uninstall the Synaptics driver, then reinstall them. To uninstall, you can go to the Control Panel, then Add/Remove Programs. To reinstall, you will need to find the install files, hopefully they are on your system. It may also be possible to download them from the HP site. If you are unable to find them, here is a link for the generic Synaptic drivers:

    You will not lose mouse functionality, just scroll bar, the touchpad will still be recognized as a mouse.

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 mouse pad does not scroll up and down


If restarting doesn't work, then try reinstalling the driver for the mouse pad. You should be able to find the driver from your manufacturer's website. If you provide the make and model and perhaps service tag of your laptop, someone may be able to provide more assistance.

You did not stated what is your operating system, if this is any flavour of windows and you have scroll mouse:

1. press and hold "ctrl" button on left side of the keyboard

Emachines laptop e525 mouse pad not working at all so cannot use everything else starting up as normal


Look at the middle cover (above the keyboard). there are two buttons that touch the power switch, the one to the left enables/disables the touchpad. If it shows an orange light it is disabled. Just press it, and be careful not to hit it when turning unit on.

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.

Message saying alps pointing devive has stopped working, can still move mouse pointer but cant use the scroll function


A possible fix for the Alps problem Your Alps pointer problem is probably driver related. To fix it:
1. Open Windows Explorer
2. Right click on Computer & choose properties
3. Open Device Manager (Admin password may be required)
4. Under Mice & other pointing devices, right click Alps pointing-device & choose Update driver software
5. Choose Search automatically & it will download and install the latest signed driver from the windows repositories & hopefully that will fix that problem.

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...


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.
