1. Locate the Touchpad icon in the area near your clock, in the bottom right corner area of your screen. Known as the System Tray. Thi icon may look like a picture of the touchpad. Some systems may have a different lookint icon. You can place your pointer on each icon and you will get a baloon identifying the icon.

2. Once you find the icon, then Right Click on it and select Pointind Device Properties or the similar option on your system.

3. Click on the Device Settings tab, and then Settings in the box that opens. Known as the Mouse Properties window.

4. Adjust the settings for scrolling, tapping or other features you wish to change by following the directions on your screen. When finished click on OK and it will exit while applying the changes.

SOURCE: my scroll feature on the touch pad on my alienware

I've seen this before and I think I know what might have happened.

Of course, I'm guessing, so bear with me.

during an update from Windows website, the touchpad drivers were updated. This was done, in all likelihood, without your knowledge.

Find the touchpad in the Device manager (I'm guessing you know your way around a computer) and look at the properties.

Then, roll back the driver and restart.

good luck.

SOURCE: scroll bar on the right side of my touch pad scrolls too fast how do i slow it down

It depends, do you know if there is an icon down in the taskbar near the clock that has options for your mouse, if there is then you would double click that and there should be options in there.

Im trying to turn on my touchpad via control panel but when i click the box to turn it on, it wont work


go to acer.com go to support and drivers and download the driver files for the touch pad again that should solve this issue. Follow instructions to the letter and off you should go again unless the touch pad is bad mechanically.

Make sure you input the correct laptop make and model when searching their files. The driver will be there.

Hi, I have a Compaq Presario CQ56 & the scroll area on my mouse pad isn't working. Can this area be turned off and if so, is there a way to turn it back on/unlock it?


The scroll pad on the touch pad needs a particular driver Synaptics Pointing Device Driver. This will actually run at the startup after installed which will activate the functionality of scroll on the touch pad. You can also actually turn this function on and off so this is a friendly user.
If you do not have that driver that comes with your laptop you can go here:
http://www.compaq.com/cpq-country/cpq_support.html
or here

Good day.

Cannot scroll on my touch pad


This usually means you need a driver for the touch pad. Though, not all touch pads are designed to scroll. Go your your PC manufacture and look up your model for support. You should see a driver for the touch pad.

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").

Touch pad


If you have the drivers for the touchpad installed then you should be able to run your finger up or down the right hand side of the touch pad and have it scroll the page you are one.

If it doesn't work then you may need to either reinstall the drivers or find the program that handles the touch pad settings (usually found in program files) and turn the scrolling feature back on.

Hope that helps :)

Touch pad issues


Next time you try scrolling on the touch pad, also push down (really) hard on the touch pad(kind of like you're squeezing the player). Keep doing this, and you may get it working. I've dropped mine a few times, and this push/squeeze/scroll seemed to work.
