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.

Scrolling problem


2 things to check, first is the simplest:
1) there should be a button near the touch pad, probably with a light around it which is orange/red at the moment, but if you click it it should change and become usable.
2) if the first doesn't work let me know just repost here and i'll try to get you a link for the driver download ( did you notice specifically when it stopped working ? )

HP Pavilion dv9000 scroll on mouse pad has stopped working


I figured it out! The same exact thing happens to me. To fix the problem: When you exit full screen mode, click your mouse on your internet page to make sure you are actively on that page, then hit the space bar twice. I have been using this method for a week now, and it solves the problem every time!! I hope this helps you!

Dell touchpad icon missing


Hello,
'Inactive icons' in the System Tray next to the time display do not display using the defaults in XP. To change this, right click over the Taskbar and choose Properties. Once you are in the Primary property page unselect "hide inactive icons." This may require you to log off or even reboot to affect this change.

Still, to get to the property pages for your Touch pad you want to enter Control Panel and then Mouse. Inside the Mouse property pages for control panel you'll see a property tab for the glide pad. Make your desired setting and then reboot. As you may already know, the scrolling function of the glide pad is accessed by drawing a finger down the far right hand side of the glide pad surface.

Hope this has helped and fixed ya.

SCROLL PAD SOLUTION THAT WORKED FOR ME!!!

Well what I did was I went to CONTROL PANEL, went to the HARDWARE AND DEVICES, went to the DEVICE MANAGER which has a list of Devices. I found the MOUSE DEVICE on the list, right clicked it went to PROPERTIES go to the DRIVER TAB, and then click on ROLL BACK DRIVER. Restart your computer. and then repeat everything again. CONTROL PANEL>DEVICES>MOUSE>PROPERTIES>DRIVER TAB when u get back to the driver tab of your mouse device. click on UPDATE DRIVER. It will then find the driver automatically reinstall it for you and then restart your computer. HOPE this fixes your scroll pad. It did for me.
