Hi.

Have recently downloaded Opera browser & find the Synaptics scroll function no longer works !
All other funtions seem OK & scrolling is still fine with MS Explorer
Can anyone tell me if this can be fixed ?

Answer: Satellite 5200 - Touchpad scrolling in Opera / Touchpad backlight

I?m not sure but I think the Opera explorer doesn?t support this option.

But if the Opera supports this option so maybe you have to enable it only in the Opera settings?
But sorry I don?t use the explorer and therefore I can?t give you a exactly instruction hoe to do it.

But play around with the settings or visit some Opera support sites

My Satellite 5200 Series features a PHYSICAL scroll wheel under the Touch Pad in addition to the two "mouse" buttons. I find it a massively useful feature but can't find any current models that have retained it.

Has it been rejected ?

Is there an alternative way of scrolling with newer machines ?

I'd rather not add an external mouse as it blocks a valuable USB port AND I actually DO use my laptop, outdoors on my LAP.

Answer:Satellite 5200: Question about TouchPad scrolling function

Hi Tatterdemalion,

Most modern notebooks using a touchpad have a software scrolling feature (which can be disabled if you wish) to control automatic scrolling. This is very useful for browsing text in Word documents or on web pages etc., The technique (when the feature is enabled) is to set the top left or right corner of the touchpad to be the 'enable' point and by touching this area momentarily it will change the mousse pointer to indicate the autoscroll option. You then just drag the pointer slightly downwards and the screen will start to scroll until you touch the touch pad again.

A manual scroll facility is also available and can be used simply by stroking the right side of the touchpad (down to scroll down and up to scroll up), and the bottom of the touchpad to scroll left and right.

I find these features very useful but I know other people who find them extremely irritating. It is worth checking out.

regards,

Hi,

I don't really have a problem, but a question...
While configuring the touchpad the backlight shortly turns on and after a while off again. Where can I configure, that this backlight is allways on like the backlight for the little display at the front of the laptop?

Another question...is it possible, to activate hyperthreating for this notebook?

PLZ answer...I wait :-)

Answer:Satellite 5200 - 801 TouchPad configuration

Hi,

about Touchpad I can only advice you to look at cPad configuration. Click through the second writer and look if it's possible!
You can also look at Toshiba download page if a new cPad configuration version is available.

About Hyperthreading I have to disappoint you because your notebook has only a Pentium 4 Mobile without Hyperthreading! When you need Hyperthading you will need a new notebook! Sorry

Hi everyone.

I was hoping someone could help me with a problem I'm having with my Satellite 5200-802. The Keyboard will not work evn though it shows in device manager and report it as working fine. I have updated the BIOS and tried a lot of other basic stuff so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

It may be worth mentioning that I also cannot get my touchpad driver to register.

Many thanks.

Answer:Satellite 5200-802: Keyboard and touchpad dont work

Hi

Do you get an error message or do you have any bed signs on the screen?
Can you use the keyboard to access the BIOS?
If yes then the keyboard was recognized and works!

If you cannot use the keyboard running OS then I would recommend to delete the keyboard device from the device manager and to restart the notebook.
After new OS reboot the keyboard should be recognized again.

But I think that you will be not able to access the BIOS.
Due to the fact that the touchpad does not work too, I presume the hardware is faulty or there is no connection to the motherboard. Maybe a lose cable?

Maybe you should check this. But note; if you have no experience contact the notebook technicians. Bye

We just got a Dell XPS-15z, and, we have questions about scrolling on the Cypress touchpad using the Cypress drivers.

When scrolling down (either one finger or 2 fingers), when you hit the bottom of the touchpad, is there any way for the scrolling to continue without your having to lift your finger(s) back to the top of the touchpad? On other Dell laptops, I have Chiral motion, or the scrolling continues so long as your finger is at the bottom of the touchpad? I tried enabling the "Continued Motion" option just in case that was what did it, but that did not seem to work.

Which brings up another question re what "Continued Motion" does.

Also, is there any manual/help document for this driver either on the internet, or in the software itself?

I looked on the forum and on the internet, and couldn't find any answers.

TIA.

Can I fix in?

Answer:Satellite U300 touchpad - no scrolling with Win 7

Hi

Did you install the touchpad driver?

Please do this because the standard Win7 driver does not support extended touchpad options and settings.

Then after touchpad driver installation you can change the settings which can be found in control panel ? mouse -> advanced tab -> advanced features -> settings

Hi there!

I upgraded my above Notebook to Windows 10 early April this year.
So far no problem. Everything worked fine. Everything.
Early last week Microsoft installed automatically some updates. I hate them for this way of "support".
From that minute no scolling either with the touchpad nor with the original Toshiba mouse possible.
Microsoft is not able to resolve the problem.
Any idea?

Thanks,

PS: Pls apologize my poor english but I didn't use it so much for some years.

Originally when i had my A200-1HU I could use the right hand side of the touchpad to scroll. I now cannot do so.

I cannot find anyway to rectify this, there is a logo in systray saying synaptics pointing device but when I click on it, it takes me to pointing device properties that are relevant to a mouse not a pad.

How do I get my scrolling back on my touchpad?

Answer:Satellite A200-1HU: How do I get scrolling back on my touchpad

I lost all the functions on my touchpad after a windows update, which installed new synaptic touchpad drivers. After a lot of frustration and hours later i finally got them back by reinstalling Alps Electric touchpad drivers, NOT the synaptic drivers.

Hello,

since I bought my Satellite L550 I have problems with the touchpad.
From time to time it stops the scolling funktionality. I tried different things. I deinstalled the drivers reinstalled them, tried older drivers and so on.

Then I decided to wait until I get my Windows 7. Two days ago I received my package and after the successful upgrade to Windows 7 the problem occured again. Suddenly the scolling-functionality didn't work.
Just a reboot of the system solves the problem.
Then the system works some time, and the problem occures again.

The Touchpad is a Alps Pointing device. T
he current installed driververison is 7.102.302.104.

Hopefully anybody can help me to solve this problem finally.

Thanks a lot

P.S. sorry for my bad english. I'm from Germany.

Answer:Satellite L45: touchpad scrolling feature does not work

Hi

Did you check if the touchpad scroll function has been enabled and configured properly?
Before you would reinstall the touchpad driver I recommend checking these settings.

Do you know where to find these settings?
You can find it in

+Control panel -> mouse -> last tab (device settings) -> Settings button+

Here you should check the *Virtual Scrolling*

Answer:How to enable Touchpad scrolling on a Satellite 2410

Hi,

a little hint, hope it helps you:

Click on Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Mouse and then after you reached the "Mouse Properties" there should be a tab named "Advanced".
Mostly there is special software from the manufacturer, and there the settings can be modified.

Otherwise, look into your "Toshiba Console" if you can find something there.

However, the option related to enabling vertical scrolling is not present in the settings.

Is there anything I can do to fix this?



Thank you.

Answer:Satellite A200 - Touchpad vertical scrolling not present

Hi

You have to install the Synaptics and the Alps touchpad driver.
Then you could enable the vertical scrolling in control panel -> mouse -> pointing devices -> settings.

Take a look into L500 series... there you will find both touchpad drivers

HI everybody,

I face the same problem as the friend here; Personally I have spent hours to figure out how Toshiba could be mad enough to make this simple setting impossible.

I have tried :
- replace the driver by newer Alps, Synaptics
- ask the Toshiba technical support, that has been unable to find a solution, but I do have doubts about responder skills that seemed to discover the Z30 for the first time
- tried ton modify values in HKEYCURRENT and LOCAL

God damn it ! NOTHING WORKS !!!!!!
I cant understand that a brand like Toshiba leave consumers in that mess because of a so simple setting.

Thank to anyone able to solve the problem

Answer:How to disable scrolling function on touchpad on Satellite A series?

This option you can find in advanced mouse options.
Control panel > Mouse properties > Device settings and if you have Synaptics driver just click on settings. There you will find option for virtual scrolling.

Just remove check mark in front of horizontal and vertical scrolling options and it will be OFF.

Hello all.

I see from previous posts that this issue has been addressed in some way or another a few times and I have tried several of the fixes, and have had no success.

1. I have a toshiba L300 next to me(girlfriends), and this feature works fine. V annoying!!
2. I have never been able to enable the scrolling. I know where the setting are and have tried to check/uncheck the boxes/ press 'apply' then ok and the other way around.
3. I have re-installed the drivers from toshiba(synaptics).
4. I have updated the bios from tempro. Although I only registed for tempro recently, the dates on the list of updates seemed fairly old. ie. not much new stuff available anyway.

Thats where im at!
All advice would be apreciated.
Also, are Realtec drives related with the touchpad in some way??
Cheers Phill
I have about a month left on the warranty, so hopefully this would be something that may be covered if no-one can help.

Answer:Satellite Pro A210 touchpad synaptics cannot enable virtual scrolling.

Hello

In my opinion everything you already done is right and I?m really out of idea what you can try except most radical solution ? OS installation with recovery CD/DVD. After doing this you will have ?factory settings? again. As far as I know virtual scrolling is enabled by default and it should work after first start.

So doing this you can make the ?ultimate test? and be sure if this function works or not.

Answer:Toshiba Satellite A200 Notebook - Synaptics Touchpad Not Scrolling?

It could be a hardware issue.

I had similar problems w/ notebook - mousepad had to be replaced.

You could try to un-install all drivers in Device Manager then re-boot. Vista will re-install. Also make sure to go to OEM site and get updated driver - if available.

Note that you will lose mouse function completely after un-install. Have USB mouse or b/c familar with CTRL-ALT-DEL that will get you to screen so you can use arrow keys to restart system

Hi all,

I have a problem with my Synaptics Touchpad. I can always move arround with one finger, and the physical click always works too. However, with heavy disk usage (like when Windwos is installing updates, or Chrome is opening a gazillion tabs at once) the two finger scroll does not work temporarily. After the hard drive sucking program finishes its tasks, the mouse works fine once again.

Are there any solutions to this problem?

Thanks!

Answer:Satellite P50-B - touchpad scrolling unresponsive with high disk usage

The two finger scrolling is controlled by touchpad driver? in your case it seems to be the Synaptics touchpad driver.

I guess that the Synaptics process will be interrupted in case of heavy system and CPU load.
Usually this is nothing unusual? in many cases such short temporal interrupts may appear if notebook will be used under heavy load.

But I think you could solve this settings the synaptic process priority to an higher level.
Please check this nice HowTo change the process priorities in Windows Task Manager

Hi

Touchpad scrolling is an additional feature which appears only if Touchpad driver (in your case I assume its ELAN touchpad driver) is installed.

So please check if ELAN touchpad driver is installed.
If it installed, go to control panel → mouse → ELAN (I guess its last tab)

Here you will find additional settings and the scrolling must be enabled under → EDGE SCROLL

Hi,

After I updated the BIOS (from Toshiba's website), the scrolling function stop working. I can still click, move the mouse pointer, but can no longer scroll through touch pad. Reinstalling Synaptics driver doesn't resolve the problem. The strange thing is that the computer only detects my touchpad as standard pointing device (port: PS/2) device. 'Pressure graph' and 'Moodpad' function also stop working and complain 'this program requires a Synaptics TouchPad and the Synaptics Pointing device driver'.

Answer:Satellite A200 - Touchpad scrolling function stop working after update BIOS

Hello,

Which operating system is installled and which is more interesting: which BIOS version did you installed?? Why I am asking? Because there are 2 different BIOS versions, one for Vista (1.80) and one for XP (5.20) which means when you flash a XP BIOS on a machine with Vista installed then some functions are not working properly like the FN keys or the touchpad.

Please check this out and make sure you have the proper BIOS installed.

Hello Everyone,

My problem started after updating windows 8.1 to windows 10, of course!
First the touchpad just stopped working, for no reason.

My solution was to uninstall the drive and restart the laptop. And from time to time I had to do this proceed. Two weeks ago windows updated, and the touchpad issue's gone. . Unfortunately, another one appeared.

The feature "mousekey", which is turn it on at ease access to use the numeric keys to use them as a mouse, It's turning itself on. And doesn't matter how many times I turn it off, few seconds and it's on again.

I've tried uninstalling the drive, which after windows the last updating was "ELAN".

Then I replaced by the Toshiba drivers, which is "Synaptic", and uninstalled the drives ,the problem is the same. Because of that, I can't use my numeric key, which is annoying!! If anyone can come up with something I will be grateful.

My touchpad has lost its scrolling functions since I upgraded to Windows 10, a year ago, and nothing I try can fix that.    I understand Windows comes with built-in drivers for mouse and touchpad, with the basic functions for the cursor. But that Synaptics drivers, with other functions like scrolling, are quickly downloaded and installed.   Well, in my case, it seems that these Synaptics drivers never take over, never get to actually control the touchpad: they seem correctly installed and activated, and I do check the scrolling functions all right; but the touchpad continues to behave as if it were still driven by the basic built-in drivers in Windows.   In fact sometimes I uninstall and totally delete the Synaptics drivers and make do with the basic Windows software; until the next automatic downloading of the useless Synaptics.   Thanks for any help.

The touchpad generally works fine, but with two-finger scrolling sometimes I experience a 0.5 s lag OR the pad interprets the gesture as a pointer move (although I definitely use 2 fingers). The behavior is seemingly random, but it occurs quite often.I disabled "pinch to zoom" in settings. I also tried increasing the touchpad sensitivity in settings and reducing the APPThreshold in the registry to 0 (Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\PrecisionTouchPad), but this didn't help.Does anyone have an idea how to fix this?Many thanks,Geert

Answer:G-580 touchpad problem when scrolling

Hi,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your new G580 Laptops touchpad scroll feature is not working as expected, I suggest you to re-install the Touchpad driver in the computer and check the issue. While installing the driver right click on the downloaded file and select ?Run as administrator? option to get it installed without any error.
 
Do post us back if the issue persists.
 
Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

Purchased a HP ze4930us notebook last week. Have been having minor problems with the scrolling option on the touchpad, the thing on the right side of the touchpad that lets you easily scroll up and down web pages and other things. Sometimes it doesn't work.

Under one scenario, I will have to click on the webpage somewhere to get it to work. But the webpage is already selected even before I do this, because I am able to scroll the manual way, using the up and down arrows, or the page up and page down arrows. Why do I have to click somewhere on the webpage when it is already selected?

Under another scenario, the scrolling option won't even work even when I do click somewhere on the webpage. I am able to do everything else though, like scroll by using the arrows or page up and down arrows. The only way I can get the touchpad scrolling to work on the page is to either minimize the page I want to use the scrolling, and then maximize it again, or open, or make another window prominent, window, and then go back to the window that I want to do the scrolling. This works as well.

Usually, though, I do not have any problems with the scrolling on the touchpad.
 

Answer:problems with scrolling when using touchpad

I have a new ZV5000 and the scroll, while not as bad as you describe IS less sensitive than the one on my older ZT1170.

I'm not sure if it is because of the ridges on the new one or not? There are some adjustments under the Control Panel/Mouse screens that may help you?

Under "Tapping" I set the touch sensitivity to HIGH and that has helped me.

Other things I have noticed is that if there is a Window WITHIN a window, such as on the Forum's POST section, the scrolling function is specific to where the cursor is positioned....NOT the Pointer.

The same is true for Websites that use "Frames".

But the thing that STILL drives me nuts is the autoscrolling at the top and bottom of the scroll line on the touchpad!!! I always hit the spot and scroll PAST where I want to be. I have been training myself to lift my finger off the pad at the end of a scroll stroke.

This seems like a simple problem that can be easily fixed by maybe turning on some sort of setting. On my laptop, for some reason, the scroll function just stopped working. The mouse still works fine, by i can't scroll with it. I don't know if maybe it got turned off somehow?? I am running windows Vista and went into control panel>hardware and sound>mouse, but didn't see anything in there that could fix this.

I have a DELL XPS M1530 laptop that I just installed a full version of Windows 7. It had Windows Vista on it before. It is a replacement computer for my old DELL (same model) that was having issues.

I usually hook up a bluetooth mouse when I use my computer, but I just noticed last night when I was using the touchpad instead, is that it does not scroll up and down, or left to right. The mouse part of the touchpad works fine, as does the left and right buttons.

I am assuming the scrolling is just turned off on this computer (thinking simply first ... hoping it is not a serious issue). But I cannot find where to check to see if it needs to be turned back on.

Any suggestions?

There are only drivers for Vista and not Win 7. This may be an issue.

To eneble scrolling in vmware guest mechines we can install TwoFingerScroll application for windows pc from the below link

"https://github.com/awahlig/two-finger-scroll"

It will enable the scrolling with touchpad in VMware.First download the zip file and extract it.Then run the TwoFingerScroll.exe once,then check the right corner of the taskbar,if it does not appears there then check the hidden icons there.Now double click that icon and change the settings as you want.You may turn off the scrolling feature of your default touch pad application.
According to my tests to get most out of it we should turn off the acceleration,set the speed to its full limit,and set the scroll mode to compatible.

I have an OmniBook XE3 using XP pro, and am having problems with the touchpad automatically scrolling up and down when my cursor is not on the scrolling bar. This tends to happen quite frequently after I have carried out some scrolling, then released the click button and moved my cursor into the body of the text/page. It is quite irritating and I would welcome any advice on how I might stop this happening.

Answer:Touchpad scrolling problems

Not exactly surewhat is happening but you need to look at the touchpad utility which would be preloaded onto the system. With this you alter the behaviour of the touchpad e.g. speed of scrolling, double click speed etc. It`ll be in the start>programs list perhaps called "synaptics". Usually the right hand side of the touchpad area can be used to scroll up and down and the bottom left and right. If it`s a small pad this can be irritating.Similarly the touchpad may "lock" the scoll feature when you click the left button which is useful if you hae a long document but again irritating if you don`t!Havea readon thehelp file associated with your device. I`msure you can disable some of these features.

Hi . Have, or do you do any maintainence to Windows? With a problem like this, I would do some work on the registry, I use the Freeware program called 'Winmend registry defrag 1.3.4'. You can download it from www.winmend.com. It is a 'light' program, and unlikely to do harm (as some can). Do a backup of your current registry as a safety precaution, before the scan. Also try 'CCleaner', as a general scan of your system to clear up any further 'problems'. I use these programs often, along with 'Auslogics Disc defrag 3.1.'

HOWEVER there is one little, yet major problem I encounter and have no idea how to deal with; mentioned in the thread title.
I browsed several options, lurked around settings, internet, friends- no straight forward method found.
So, here I am, asking for your assistance: Can you help me set the touchpad back, to behave as it used to in win7? My laptop does not have touchscreen, therefore i have no need to use this built-in 'feature', which is no good for me at all.

Cheers,
XaL



Hey there,
While I can't help with your specific set up - I can give you a hint of a few places to look.
1) Check out the touchpad software settings (for my machines, that's usually the synaptics touchpad software). You can bring up Windows 10 context menu's regarding the touchpad by right clicking on the start button on the bottom left of the screen. From there, choose "Control panel". In there, click on the mouse settings. There are usually several tabs here, you will have to hunt for which one will be relevant for your touchpad. I found mind as "switch direction" in a synaptics tab.
2)Click on the Start button again. Click on "Settings". From here, there is the "ease of access". There is the "mouse" field here (which offers different buttons than the control panel route). There is also an 'oth... Read more

Hi, I'm having problem with my touch pad's scrolling feature. Whenever I open my folders, I cannot scroll through, however, it works fine when I'm surfing internet or scrolling through other stuffs like Word and start up menu. It just stops working when I'm accessing my folders. I'm using ELAN touch pad and the device is up to date. I can't seem to find the problem with this. I hope that someone can help me with this problem. Thank you!

Hi, Does anyone know how to reverse scrolling direction on the touchpad for Lenovo Thinkpad T460 (Windows 10 OS)? These are the attempts I have tried but wasn't successful:1) Control panel > change "view by" to "small icons" > click "Mouse" (Can't find any settings that allows me to change scrolling direction)2) Type "Mouse & touchpad settings" on start menu > under the "mouse & touchpad" tab, I can't find settings here3) Type "Mouse & touchpad settings" on start menu > "additional mouse options" > (can't find anything here also) PS. By default, when I move two fingers up, the text/images on the screen goes up. This is not what I'm used to as Windows machines usually operate the opposite. Any helpful suggestions are much appreciated.

Answer:How to reverse scrolling direction on touchpad for...

Hello and welcome,
 
This took some digging and may not be the same or available on your laptop depending on touchpad manufacturer.  This is on my T450s with a Lenovo Win 10 install.
 
Search "mouse", select "mouse properties..", go to ThinkPad tab, click "settings", go to Scroll tab, un-tick "Switch Direction" check box.

Dear Dell,
I recently installed Windows 8.1 x64 on my Dell Latitude E6430 with all the Dell drivers from the Dell webpage. After installation everything is fine, but the scroll does not work on my touchpad. My driver version is 8.1200.101.134 but in the touchpad settings the "Scroll & Zoom" section is missing as you can see below:

Every other gestures are working, like pinch zoom, except the vertical and horizontal scroll. But the strangest thing is on the task bar the touch pad icon seems to be right, it shows that I'm touching the side of the touch pad: .
What can I do to get back my good old scrolling?

Answer:Touchpad scrolling on E6430 with Windows 8.1

1. Go to Program Files -> DellTpad -> DellTPad.exe
2. Then Select Single Finger Gestures.

First of all, I'm running an ASUS Q550L Windows 8.1. I believe this system uses "SmartGesture" for the toucpad driver, which I uninstalled and reinstalled a couple of times over the past couple of days trying to get this worked out. If there are other specs that I should share, let me know.

The problem is that the multi finger gestures, in particular two-finger scrolling has been suddenly glitching and lagging. Scrolling with arrow keys or the click scroll on the side of pages works, but when I'm trying to use the two-finger scroll gesture on any page or program, the movement either lags several seconds and does an incomplete motion or it does not have any motion at all. It also sometimes clicks after the lag at random.

I've un and re-installed the SmartGesture driver a couple of times and that has not helped the issue. I also turned off many of the gestures which I do not use (such as any 3-finger scrolls or anything involving the app screen)

Any ideas? (aside from "buy a mouse". Someone "suggested" that one already.)
Thanks very much =)

When I go to the Control Panel > Mouse, I get an error message that says that my laptop is not recognizing my touchpad.



It still lets me open the configure window if I hit "no," and when I go to Device Settings > Scrolling > One-Finger Scrolling, it does not let me check the "Enable Vertical Scrolling" box. When I click the box, nothing happens.



My Synaptics driver is enabled to turn on at start up, so I don't know why this problem is happening.



I think I must have disabled something in msconfig without realizing it, because one day when I turned on my laptop I just wasn't able to use vertical scrolling. Any ideas? Advice would be much appreciated! Thank you!

Answer:How do I enable touchpad vertical scrolling?

Hello moonlightxmania and welcome to Seven Forums.

If this issue just recently started you may be able to roll back your computer to a date/time prior to when it first began. See if you have a restore point that goes back that far.

System Restore

Another possibility is to see if you can update the Synaptics driver. Just as an example, my computer uses the Alps pointing device. When I go to control panel > mouse I get this:

When I click the Hardware tab and then double click on Alps pointing device I get this:

Click on the Driver tab and see if the "Update Driver" button can be clicked. (Mine is grayed out because I have the newest available driver.) If you can update the driver, do so. Please post back if your problem gets resolved.

sorry if this question has already been asked, didnt find an answer in the other threads. so when scrolling anything, up and down, if i click and hold to scroll, when i let go the touchpad retains control of the scrolling and moving the touch pad up and down instead of moving cursor moves the page up and down until i click again to disable scrolling.i find this extremely annoying and nothing i changed in hardware>mouse>touchpad>settings seemed to fix the problem.  has anyone else successfully disabled this feature?

since i've gotten my x201 i've been pretty happy with it. the only problem i've had with it is scrolling. on some applications such as itunes and AIM the program doesn't scroll. i've read a few entries saying that i have to modify the tp4table.dat file and it does work.my question is why is this necessary when other laptops don't need to do this. is this because synaptics drivers do not support scrolling in those applications yet? also how often does lenovo release new drivers to update support for more programs

Answer:scrolling problem with touchpad/trackpoint

Hello keviinf,modify the tp4table.dat file is the one way, updating the ultra nav drivers could help also.Please reboot your system after editing the tp4table.dat file.Otherwise it won´t work.I did some tweaks on my both systems too. Like enabling horizontal scrolling in Firefox.
