Okay this sounds like a driver issue. 1. Right-Click My Computer 2. Select Manage 3. In the left window pane select device manager 4. In the list that appears in the main window see if there are any yellow triangles with either a ! or ? in it 5. If there are any on any of your mice or other pointing devices then you are missing a driver. to get the driver for your laptop you can find it here: ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp30001-30500/sp30144.exe Hope it helps!

The touch mouse will scroll and move but won't click.

you might have to reset it
Most modern laptops with touchpads offer vertical scrolling, horizontal scrolling or both. These features are located along the right-hand and bottom edges of the touchpad, respectively, and are activated when you swipe your finger along the touchpad edge. Scrolling functionality is nearly always enabled by default, but some users find the feature an annoyance and elect to turn it off. In most cases you can simply turn the feature back on using the Windows Control Panel.

Click the Windows Start button, select "Settings," and then click "Control Panel." Double-click the icon labeled "Mouse." Select the Touchpad properties tab. The labeling of this tab varies, depending on your computer manufacturer, operating system version and the device drivers installed on your machine. Common labels include "Touch Pad," "Device Settings" and "Dell Touchpad." If you do not see this option, you may not be able to turn on scrolling for your laptop; skip the remaining steps and refer to the "Warnings" section below. Click the "Settings" button within the Touchpad Properties menu and look for the section labeled "Scrolling Settings" or similar. Enable scrolling within this section and define other scroll settings, such as scroll zone width and scrolling speed. Click "OK" to confirm your changes, and then close the Control Panel windows opened in the previous steps. The scrollbar on your laptop is now enabled.

If the scroll functionality suddenly stops working but the actual touchpad is still fine, this means that the part of the software for the device that controls the ability to use the scroll has been disabled. You can enable it again in the Control Panel.
Click "Start." Click "Control Panel." Click "Mouse." Select the "Enable Scroll" option (or whatever similarly named option is available on your specific model of laptop computer). Click "Apply." The scroll bar on your touchpad will now work again.

    I have a problem with my laptop, my scroll thing won't work in the touch pad, i need help?

    The touchpad in those units is made by a company called Synaptics. Go to this page and download the drivers for your operating system. http://www.synaptics.com/support/drivers
    You will also need to go to Start, Control Panel, Mouse, and set the zones on your touchpad. My guess is after the driver install, you will find the scroll zone is set too small and need sto be adjusted.

    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").

    The scroll zone in my touchpad is not working

    You need to go to the Dell website and download the driver for your touchpad for the version of Windows that you are using. Depending on the age of your laptop and the version of Windows there may not be a driver for your touchpad. In that case you might need to use an external mouse instead.
