Touchpad Scroll bar not working!

Hi folks, looking for some help here as I've tried Googling and haven't had much luck.

The scroll bar thingy on my laptop touchpad isn't working. Wasn't me, I didn't do anything!!!! I've got Windows Vista OS. All the advice I've read mentions going into Control Panel, Mouse and then Gestures, but my Mouse dialog box doesn't have a Gestures section and only talks about Horizontal and Vetical scrolling but without any option to turn vertical scrolling on or off.....

Any help would be much appreciated.

You sure it's not a mechanical fault on the touchpad?

You could udate or rollback the drivers.........

control panel
mouse
hardware
properties
driver
update or rollback the drivers.

that's about as far as my knowledge would go I'm afraid - hope it helps MJ!

Have you tried restoring to a time when it did work?  That's my solution to most problems Laughing

Restore to yesterday when it worked.

Could be a hardware issue, does the laptop have diagnostics?  Also, why not plug in a external USB mouse, much more convienent anyway.

Thanks for help folks.

Not sure when it last worked properly.

Don't have enough room to use a mouse.

I'll let you know how I get on......

Have you turned it off by accident? My laptop has a button just above the touchpad which turns it on and off and I've been guilty of accidently hitting it from time to time.

Ralph to the rescue....
No, sorry. I've got a wee button but when you press it, it just locks the pointer.
But thanks it was a good try and leads me to the question...why does your wee button switch it on and off and my wee button locks the pointer.

At the moment when I've opened the Mouse doodee (sorry, dunno the technical terms), the Mouse Properties thingy says that it's not responding so I guess that's another hint that there's a problem even though one of the other tabs (ooh, that's one of the technical words) says that the device is working correctly.

Technically, my wee button does lock it but in that situation I say that its been turned off. When I click on settings I get a settings tab, have you had a look under that?

Thanks again for all your help. I've managed to get it working again. Went into Device Manager and Rolled back to previous driver, but I was also installing new Windows updates as well, so not sure which thing fixed it, but at least it's working again.
Cheers folks, you help is much appreciated. I always Google a problem first, but if that doesn't work, I'll resort to asking the experts here!  Wink
