The mouse cursor works perfectly fine during the signing in process, but it freezes once signed in. The touchpad only lets me scroll up/down. I tried FN+F5 but that doesn't work. I've had this laptop for a year and it hasn't done this until now. Any suggestions?

I have a Satellite L750 (my first Laptop and first touchpad) running Windows 7. I have set the mouse scroll to 1 line at a time but every time I place the pointer on the right scroll bar down arrow (and press the left button or tap) the screen jumps so that the scroll bar is at the bottom. I want the screen to 'inch' down slowly as it would if I was using a mouse wheel.

Yes, I know that the answer is probably very easy so please, those folks that are itching to reply remember I am a 'newbie' at touchpads.

Regards

Answer:Satellite L750 - How do I scroll with the touchpad?

Hey,

You can scroll with the touchpad on right side of it. Just move your finger up or down on the right side of touchpad and you can scroll with this gesture. It?s not complicated and very easy.
Furthermore such basic operations are described in user manual and I would recommend reading it. ;)

If you are not familiar with the touchpad you can also connect an external USB mouse (same mouse like on a desktop computer). Such external mouses are not expensive and you don?t need a driver for that. Just connect it to one USB port and it?s ready to use :)

Hi guys,

in 2007 i bought my Toshiba Satellite A110-156, shortly after i got vista home from Toshiba as an present for my new Laptop.
All good, only my touchpad didn't scroll.

After a new driver version 703014, it works.
Only vista keeps naggin by the start up. I have to accept the drivers three times before it works.
Every time by a start up!

After a while, i finally found the solution - sadly enough - this weekend i had to reinstall my laptop en forgot what the solution was.
I have the same driver, version 703014 from the toshiba site and saddly the same problem.

I can't find the solution on the dutch sites, so i hope you can help me!

I already tried to install the drivers by de hardware programs, this didn't help!

Answer:Satellite A110-156 - touchpad doesn't scroll

Hi

Maybe you have to configure the touchpad again?

I think you will find the touchpad settings in control panel -> mouse.
There you have to search for the touchpad entry? I?m not sure if you have to got to the properties or settings but one of this option should be available to get advanced touchpad settings.

The A110-156 seems to be a PSAB0E series?
If you are using the Vista then you have to update the BIOS to the 5.20-WIN version because this BIOS is only for Vista usage!

At seemingly intermittent points, my laptop scrolls down uncontrollably to the point where it is unusable.
It only ever scrolls down, and stops just as suddenly as it started.

I have tried everything I can think of, scanned many times for viruses and reinstalled the touchpad drivers and am now at the end of my tether.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Answer:Satellite A120 - Touchpad scroll issues

Does your laptop have an Accupoint (between the G, H, B keys)?

Maybe that is causing the cursor to drift. Try disabling the Accupoint in the Mouse Settings in Control Panel.

Hi,
I'm interested in buying notebook L500-164.

Can anybody tell me if this notebook has a touchpad with scroll-function?
And if, only page down or also "left to right"?

Thanks!

Answer:Satellite L500-164 - Does the touchpad has scroll function?

Hi

Yes, the Satellite L500 supports virtual scrolling.

But therefore you need the touchpad driver, this feature is software based as on other notebook. It?s not a problem because the driver is already preinstalled and additionally you can download it on the Toshiba page. :)

Have fun with a new Satellite L500. Friend of me bought it too and it?s really great and the price is also good.

Answer:TouchPad does not scroll using Win 7 on Satellite A200 PSAE3E

Hi

> scrolling with newest drivers for Win7 from Toshiba and Synaptics doesnt works good.
Does this means that scrolling function is available after the installation of Win 7?

Hmm? for me it sounds like you would need to configure this touchpad function.
You can do this in control panel -> mouse -> device settings
There should be an additional tab containing all the touchpad options?

There you could change and increase the touch area which is needed for scrolling and similar? you could increase the sensitivity too?

I tryed a few other drivers from Toshiba drivers page, synaptics homepage, old drivers and other... can anyone help pls with some other suggestions?
In mouse settings I dont even have other utilities other than the left/right buttons

Answer:Re: Satellite A210-11C (PSAEGE) - Can't scroll on touchpad

Hi!

Did you activate the virtual scroll function in Synaptics driver?

You should check this because this feature must be enabled. Go to control panel => Mouse => Device Settings => Settings => Virtual Scrolling.

Therefore the Synaptics driver must be installed. I?m using the driver from the Toshiba website and don?t have any problems.

Hi, like I said just turned on the laptop as usual, but for some reason now the Touchpad will not Scroll (but works to touch to click). And, the Bottom bar Disappears only when I am on the internet chrome (on chrome its gone, but still there on internet explorer, but who wants to use explorer!! lol).

It makes it so hard to click between research and writing! Its always there like it should be on word doc , excel etc.

Small things, but super annoying and I dont understand why the change, or how theyre connected. Would just like them fixed, its so silly it would just change on me.

Any help is much appreciated!!
Thanks, Jenna

Answer:Touchpad does not scroll and bottom bar disappears on Satellite Pro L

Hi

The touchpad settings can be changed in control panel -> mouse
Here you have to go to last tab ?Advanced? and click on Advanced setting button.

Now you should get a menu with all options available for touchpad.
There should be a option called ?Use Scroll function?. This should be checked/enabled.

Check this!

One day I realized I had lost pinch and scroll functions on my touch pad. Don't know why.
So I tried to install a Synaptics touch pad Driver. This provided the missing functions but the Cursor got delayed and the sensitivity of the touch pad was restricted to a certain spot. Therefore I de-installed the Synaptic Driver again.
The sensitivity issued got cured but I still had no pinch and scroll function on the touch pad.
Therefore I went to the Toshiba download site and learned that the ALPS Driver was the original Driver.
I tried to install this Driver (as requested for 64 bits).
The installation seemed to pass smoothly. After re-starting there is still no pinch and scroll functionality and nowhere the driver is found neither in the programs list nor added to the "mouse" Screen in the System functions Folder.

How can I get that pinch, zoom and scroll functions back to my touch pad?

Answer:Satellite L50-B - lost touchpad pinch and scroll functions

This sounds like program interference, you will need to perform a clean boot and disable firewall and antivirus and then try and install the driver. Here is a description on how to perform a clean boot, https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/929135

Answer:Satellite Pro A200 - Vertical scroll on touchpad not working after update

Hi Ian

Why you don?t try to roll back the OS to the early time point?
I mean the OS point before you have installed the touchpad driver?

Usually this should helps to get back the early touchpad functions?.

My touchpad (Alps Ver. 7.0.302.8) looses the scroll function periodically when switching between web sites in Firefox.
Under "mouse properties" the graphic shows no activity for the scrolling activity.

It usually highlites the graphic when I touch the scroll area of the touchpad. I am at the latest driver ver., but have not tried removing & reinstalling it yet. Anyone know if this is likely a Vista (Vista Home Premium SP1) issue or an Alps driver issue?
I also occasionally lose my pointer settings, like speed, when awaking from sleep. Not sure of exact conditions when this happens though.

I have seen an issue with my wireless adapter not being recognized after after sleep.
For this, I must restart the computer & the device is reinstalled.
The problem with the touchpad did not occur for the first 2 weeks of use, but the wireless adapter problem started from day 2 or 3.

Oh, BTW, I also have a Logitech mouse (Ver. 4.24.28.0) installed & Wacom (1.2.2.0) driver installed.
I can do without the Wacom being installed at start, but I do want the Logitech mouse driver installed.

Any help is appreciated.

Answer:Satellite P305-S8828 touchpad loosing scroll function

Hey kev

We can discuss about this just if you use recovery image or ?factory settings?. You have installed third part driver and the Toshiba responsibility stops there. Nobody knows if there is some negative influence to Toshiba preinstalled driver.

If you want to have full touchpad functionality, use Toshiba stuff only. But if you want to use some external device with own driver or software you must live with it.

Answer:Issues with sound and scroll function on touchpad on my Satellite A500/026

Hi

The touchpad settings are placed in control panel -> mouse
There you will find the additional tab which would allows you to access the touchpad properties.

As far as I know the touchpad properties contains a lot of different options which allows you to configure the scroll function, to enable and to assign different actions to the touchpad corners, etc?

Hi,

the Alps touchpad driver for W8.1 that is currently supplied by Toshiba does not have an option to adjust the vertical scroll speed of the two finger gesture. With the default speed, even leaning the fingers downwards without moving them results in a scroll that is equivalent of PAGE_DOWN, e.g. way to fast.The version I use is the latest one from the website (tpdrv-20140306120847.zip)

There is a registry entry in HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Alps/Apoint that make the situation a bit more bearable (set ScrollLines to 1), but there is no way to adjust if further it in the settings or the registry


A newer Alps Driver (8.103.404.104) from another company has this option and scrolling works like it should on the lowest speed, but it does not support 2-finger rightclick.


Why does toshiba use an outdated driver that is missing this critical function? Is there a new driver available? Did anyone find a fix for this?

Answer:Satellite Z30 - Updated Touchpad Driver with adjustable scroll speed?

Hi

From my knowledge notebook manufacturers modify and adjust the own drivers.
The driver versions are always different and are not always comparable with driver versions released by other notebook manufacutrers.

As you said above:
the Alps driver released by Toshiba does not support the scroll speed but at the other hand it supports the 2-finger right click.
The other driver supports the scroll speed option but doesn?t support the finger right click.

Well it would nice to have an driver which would support all the mentioned options.
So I think we can just wait and hope that the next releases will support some more nice-to-have features?

Hello, I got my new Lenovo Ideapad U410 (Windows 7) yesterday and I'm just starting to get things going. The one thing that has been bothering me is that I can't scroll uing the touchpad.

The Fn Key works for the upper keys (F1, F5, etc.) but not for the buttons on the side (Home/Pause, End/Break, PgUp/ScrLk, PgDn/Insert). I figure I should reinstall keyboard drivers?

I just had my new W530 delivered yesterday, unfortunately with Windows 8 Professional. I noticed that the cursor would not move when I moved my finger across the touchpad or the cursor was "stuck" until I tried a repeat movement with my finger.   I adjusted almost every setting on the latest lenovo driver which provides for windows 8 screen gestures.   The responsiveness to windows 8 gestures does not appear that good, but it is a story for another post.  The main reason for my post is that vertical scrolling barely works in IE 10.I have all the smart check items disabled and the palmcheck lowered to 3.   I've got the touch sensitivity to light, but have also tried heavy.   I have to push like I'm trying to crack the case to get the cursor to move up and down, and often I will touch the right side of the touchpad and nothing happens or it takes a few tries of swiping to get the window to move up or down.    I called two support agents and the first one reminded me I have 30 days to return the unit for a refund, and the second guy had me update the driver with the lenovo update  utility which showed the same version as the one I downloaded and installed.  It made no difference.   He then suggested that if I keep the laptop, the trackpad needs replacing. From looking at some other posts, I really wonder if the pad could be ok, but lenovo is actually selling this thing with a trackpad that performs that poorly. &nb...

Answer:Touchpad vertical scroll horrible or touchpad defective

On the W520, the two finger scrolling is unusable, it just randomly jerks the window, or not. Tried every trick in the book when I first got my W520, after a couple of months of wasting time gave up and only use it with a mouse. The W520 has the worst trackpad in the history of computing devices (and the worst mic and speakers, or at least worst drivers). If you need a working touchpad, dont by a Lenovo W series.

- For some reason Dell set the default to two finger scrolling so if you can't find the above menu try placing your index and middle finger about half and in apart in the middle of the trackpad and pull down like you normally do to scroll with one finger

Answer:g50-70 touchpad/scroll?

hi fangovk,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
If you have an ELAN Touchpad, it's likely that the feature is disabled in the registry. Try to check this article on how to enable these hidden features then reboot the machine and observe if you now have an Edge Scroll (a.k.a. One Finger Scroll) option.
 

 
Note:
The procedure requires you to merge a registry file to enable all the ELAN features. Ensure that you create a System Restore point or a registry backup just in case you need to revert back the changes.

So i got this new HP spectre i7 that I am very glad for, but for some reason, I cannot scroll with the touchpad. It has worked a couple of times, but for the most part, the mouse just moves without the page scrolling. I have tried to update the touchpad driver, but was the system said that I already had the newest available. It is quite an annoyance since I have to use the scroll bar constantly instead of scrolling swiftly with the touchpad.

In Yoga 900 the touchpad does not scroll sometimes even I updated all the drivers or restored the computer. I thought it was just me having this problem but then I read in the reviews on Lenovo web site that some users was complaining quote "trackpad isn't reliable as it doesn't scroll sometimes. Not sure if I am missing something or this is genuinely a problem. in any case, would appreciate Lenovo's attention on this". 
 
To be more concrete the scrolling with two fingers with the touchpad (trackpad) seems to work well in desktop apps like Chrome, but does not seem to work well in windows metro or windows metro app. For example, going to Windows 10 Button > All apps, scrolling will not work there with two fingers using touchpad. Nor will it work in Windows 10 > Settings > any options. Switching to Chrome it will imediately work smoothly. 
 
Number of users affected is at least 2 so I decided to bring it up here so it can be resolved.

Answer:Yoga 900 - Touchpad does not scroll sometimes

I have the same problem with the touchpad/trackpad. Chrome, IE, and Edge two finger scroll acceptably.   Windows (start menu and settings) and metro apps will work after a reboot until you click on something and then scrolling breaks completely (or behaves very erratically in these applications). I've tried reinstalling the touchpad drivers (trying to uninstall fails for me) and creating the "UseScrollCursor" registry key that some people have reported, but I haven't had any success. I'm glad I purchased with a 15 day return policy. I will wait a few days to see if a fix comes out, but I can't live with this type of bug.

Hi,

I use a Toshiba notebook; Intel (R) Centrino 2 duo core processor P8400.

My touch pad is active and ok but shows only the mouse pointer on the screen.
The virtual scrolls which usually appear have gone
The nature of my work warrants that I get them back for easy manipulations.

I uninstalled the synaptic driver and reinstalled another I got from the Toshiba website supports and downloads link compatible with my system.

I am still not having my scroll bars active and do not know what to do next.
I am also not very versed with computers
Can anyone help me out?

Answer:Mising scroll bar on TouchPad

You can disable or enable the scroll function on the touchpad.

Go to control panel => mouse => device settings
Select the Synaptic Touchpad and click on settings. In the category virtual scrolling you can enable this feature.

Every time my T61 comes back from hibernation the touchpad scroll will not work.  The touchpad itself, the navpoint, and the navpoint scroll via the blue button all still work.  If I restart, it will work again.  I've reinstalled the driver multiple times with no success.  It still works when I come back from sleep, but not from hibernate.  Any suggestions?

Answer:T61 Touchpad Scroll after Hibernate

Hello everyone, The following fixed this problem for me. I have a T61.1. Download the latest drivers from Synaptics?s website, not Lenovo?s.http://www.synaptics.com/support/drivers2. Uninstall the ultranav driver and ultranav utility, and restart.3. Install the driver you downloaded from Synaptics. That?s it. Horizontal scrolling now works. Lenovo?s drivers are customized for thinkpads, replacing their driver with the one from Synaptics may result in loss of certain options and functionality. I do not need any extras like the zoom and all that. I usually use the trackpoint middle button as a mouse wheel click to open links in new tabs, and that still works. The Synaptics driver allows you to customize the trackpoint (they call it ?pointing stick?) also, so maybe the Lenovo driver isn?t all that important. Try it for yourself and see if it works for you. You can always uninstall Synaptics and go back to Lenovo?s driver.

All my preferred settings are still checked and saved since the beginning of time and the preferred mouse selected, is the touch pad.

The touch pad retains all of it's scrolling capabilities until I turn off then turn my computer on again. I thought I could resolve some of the issue if I pinned Synaptics to my bottom tool bar, but Synaptics does not show when I turn on my computer either.

Hello everyone,  I have recently bought an IdeaPad Z510 running Windows 8.1 64bit. I have installed the latest drivers from Lenovo and I'm having a difficult time with the ALPS touchpad: 1. The two-finger scroll works, but only when I'm scrolling fast. If I want to scroll slowly, the touchpad is unresponsive - I can swipe the entire touchpad from top to bottom and the page only scrolls one line. This is a big problem, as it makes the touchpad extremely hard to use when reading long web pages. 2. There is no way to middle-click (i.e. no support for two/three-finger tap) - this is just a bit annoying, as I use middle-click to close browser tabs, but I can live without  ALPS touchpad driver 8.100.1611.210, which is the latest available on the Lenovo website.  I can only think of two solutions: either an update from Lenovo or an alternative driver (from another manufacturer) that can be used on the Z510. Unfortunately, ALPS does not provide generic drivers for end-users.  Any thoughts would be appreciated.  Thanks, Bogdan

I proved it was the driver update by uninstalling the driver and then installing the HP driver (sp48843). The HP driver worked just find and then I ran a Microsoft update to the driver and it messed up again.  Curerntly I'm using a conventional USB mouse that I borrowed from a desktop system.  It's driving me nuts because everytime I touch the touchpad the mouse cursor jumps all over the screen.

I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 on my Acer Aspire 7750G-6645 Notebook computer.  Everything seems to work fine except that the touchpad scrolling doesn't work. The touchpad for this notebook isn't 2 finger it's a up & down band on the rightside of the touchpad that you gently slide your finger over it up or down to scroll.  If it's a Driver issue which driver do I needto install because I don't see a Windows 10 driver for the 7750G LAPTOP I have. How do I go about fixing the scroll issue? I'm pretty much just a novice when it comes to dealing with computers so please to sure to type it out step by step. Thx If you need any other of my computer specs let me know.

Hello everyone. Need some help.. I'm new to Lenovo. Just bought an Ideapad Z485. It rocks! But theres one problem, the touchpad can't scroll up or down. Is there any special configuration that I have to apply to get this working?Thank you very much!

Answer:Ideapad z485 touchpad can not scroll

hi luqmanz88,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
First we have to make sure that right driver and software for the touchpad is installed,
    Open control panel > Hardware and Sound / Mouse
On the mouse properties Windows,
     There should be a different tab at the very top right  that should look like theseSpoiler (Highlight to read)
 
 Spoiler (Highlight to read)
You can click on the settings and go to the scroll feature check whether if it is Enabled or disable or how the feature is used.
 
 
If you don't have the settings TAB, kindly check this link for touchpad drivers download.
 
Best Regards
Solid Cruver

I was trying to troubleshoot a freezing problem before login and so, following some online instructions, i unchecked "load startup items" in system configuration, which turned off ELAN smartpad at startup. When I tried scrolling up and down on my touchpad and it didn't work, I figured it must have something to do with turning the feature off at startup. Indeed, ELAN smartpad was unchecked in the startup tab in system config, so i re-checked it. However, when I restarted my laptop, the scroll feature still wasn't working until I went into the  "Elantech" folder under Program files within the C: drive and double clicked on "ETDCtrl." I tried copying this "ETDCtrl" into the startup folder but then an error just pops up after logging in. I have to turn on the scrolling feature everytime I log into my computer and it is getting super annoying. How can it automatically start every time I turn on my laptop? Also, I noticed that in the Startup tab in system config, the folder for ELANtech is labeled as "%Programfiles%\Elantech\ETDCtrl.exe" instead of "C:\Programfiles\..." like for all the other startup items, is this the problem? if so, how do I fix it? thanks!

Hi,  I have a E560 with Win7Pro, my problem is that I would like to change the speed of scroll with two fingers when I'm scrolling web sites. To do it I open the touchpad settings and set the speed to a lower one and "confirm", the scrolling was slower but only as long the window with touchpad settings was not closed. After I close this, the scrolling speed is back as before (fast), when i open again the settings everythings looks like I've set. All other options i changed for the touchpad are set and working after I close the settings only the scrolling speed will not change. I tried to do it with old drivers and new drivers and in Admin mode, nothing helps. Maybe you have an idea ? Brgds,

Answer:E560 Touchpad - Speed Scroll

I found the solution but it's not the way how it should be done. In the mouse option ( I have no mouse ) in section "wheel" i had to change from scroll 2 lines to scroll 1 line. Now the speed is reduced but the scrolling is not smoth how it should be.  Problem is reported to Lenovo support and I hope they will release in future new drivers for the touchpad and solve this problem.

I own a T61 Thinkpad (type=6465), bought in 2008 and running Ubuntu 10.04. I recently ordered from Lenovo/IBM Parts a new palm rest because its touchpad buttons don't work properly anymore. I was told that I needed a palm rest with the id 42W2958, which had been substituted, for some reason, to part 42W3821 (they said it was compatible though).The new palm rest I received is identical to the original one I had, except for one small but annoying detail: the touchpad hardware doesn't support two finger scrolling, which I use heavily. I tried everything I could to "activate" it (if such a thing is possible) but to no avail.With this command, it's very clear that both hardwares are different: $ xinput list-props "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad" | grep Capa
Synaptics Capabilities (291):1, 1, 1, 1, 1 # <- original touchpad (2-finger-scroll = second to last column)
Synaptics Capabilities (291):1, 1, 1, 0, 0 # <- new touchpadCan someone help me figure out a way to solve this problem, in terms of part # I should (try) to replace with, or maybe some magical software solution that I'd have overlooked?

Answer:can S400 touch touchpad scroll?

 
Hi gameson,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
The Touchpad here supports Multitouch gestures such as Two-finger scroll 
 
Check this
How to use Two-Finger Scrolling:
Place two fingers slightly separated on the TouchPad. Slide both fingers in unison up or down for vertical navigation, and left or right for horizontal navigation. Gesture ends when both fingers are lifted from TouchPad.
Benefits:
Delivers scrolling functionality in Windows applications by using two fingers moving vertically or horizontally anywhere on the TouchPad. Scrolling speed is controlled by finger speed.
 
If it is not working try installing this Driver
Windows 8 
 Touchpad Driver (Synaptics, Elan)   
 
Hope this helps
Cheers!

Hi, The two finger scroll function on the touchpad is not working. The driver is updated as well. Overall the touchpad seems unresponsive as well. It gets stuck and cursor stops moving. It is the only thing that I am not happy with regarding the spectre x360. Can you please help. Thanks

I have a Dell Inspiron 15-5547 running Win 8.1. Every now and then the scroll feature (two fingers vertical swipe to scroll the screen), and the two finger tap for right click, will stop working. When this happens, all the other features on the touchpad seem to work. If I restart the laptop it starts working again. I've tried going into services.msc and setting 'Human Interface Devices" to automatic startup, but it doesn't help. There's something else pretty weird also... When I go into the system tray (lower right), right click the touchpad icon, and select Touchpad Properties, it takes me into the Dell Pointing Devices windows. Inside this window, there is a sliding switch to disable the touchpad. When I disable it, the touchpad still works. Weird. Does anybody have any ideas how I can get this sorted out. I'm also using a wireless USB mouse on the same laptop, not sure if that makes a difference. Thanks.
 

Answer:Touchpad scroll dies randomly

Hi Jools

Personally I would look to see what touchpad driver version you are using and then either update it with an in-place update, or uninstall (my favourite option, then install new driver) the current driver and then re-install, as it may just be a slight corruption.

Latest driver HERE
Also a thought, when the touchpad stops with the scroll feature, had your laptop been left not used for a period of time, like hibernation?

By default you should have scrolling on your touchpad. Just drag your finger along the far right side.
