How do I fix my laptop's scrolling issue? Sometimes it will not scroll down at all, other times it scrolls all over the place and jumps all around?

Hi,


Make sure that touchpad of your laptop is not clogged.


Most of the problems with the touchpad are software-related. There could be instances where the touchpad drivers are either outdated, or some files have been corrupted because of a possible virus attack. Also, if you have upgraded your computer's operating system recently (especially on upgrading to Windows 7), the existing drivers might not work properly.


To resolve all these issues, you need to install the latest drivers for your touchpad. These drivers are usually available on the official website of the laptop manufacturer. You could also download these drivers from the website of the trackpad manufacturer, which in most cases is Synaptics. Be well-advised though, it is always recommended to download the drivers from the laptop manufacturer's website for your specific laptop, as the specifications of each model are bound to differ. Downloading generic drivers from Synaptics might not quite give you complete functionality of your touchpad. Once the drivers are in place, your touchpad should be as good as new.


At times you could accidentally disable or lock the scrolling on your trackpad.


While there is no one method to lock or unlock the scrolling, you could try double-tapping on the top-left corner of the touchpad (but this is ideally if you happened to disable the entire touchpad). Alternatively, you could also hold down the 'Fn' + 'F7' keys to resolve this issue. Do keep in mind though this may not work on all laptops.


In case there seems to be an issue with the sensitivity of your trackpad, and you often need to press hard on the surface to register a touch, you might need to calibrate your touchpad's sensitivity.


For most laptops, with Synaptic touchpads, the settings can be changed from its easy-to-access system tray icon (the icon just to the left of the time and sound icons at the bottom-right corner of the screen). This icon looks like a small trackpad (a large rectangle with two smaller rectangles at the bottom), or a red square with a white swirl. Right click or double click on this icon, and follow the path mentioned below.

Pointing Device Properties > Pointer Options > Motion > (change the sensitivity level to best suit you) > Apply > OK

Alternatively, if this doesn't fix your touchpad, or if your touchpad is of some other make, you could try following this path.

Start > Control Panel > Hardware > Mouse > Pointing Device Properties > Device Settings > (check all the boxes) > Scrolling Region > (choose the area for virtual scrolling) > OK
