    Hello there,

    I have a Qosmio F20 and only had it for less than a year, I have always used the touch pad and the quick launch feature, never changed anything in the touch pad settings nor any major changes in the operating system, i have a problem now!

    the touch pads scrolling feature dosen't work any more, you know how the right side is to scroll up/down and the bottom for scrolling left/right, now it dosen't work.... my brother used my computer and he installed a bluetooth program, infrared driver, he used a USB mouse and installed Nokia PC suite.
    NOW what do i do? HEEELP!!!!!!

    Thanks.

    Hi

    You brother has installed a lot of applications and also a USB mouse.
    Who knows what he has changed on your notebook.

    If the touchpad scrolling function does not work so I assume the settings were changed.
    In your case I would recommend checking the touchpad settings.
    You should find it under the mouse settings in the control panel.

    As far as I know you can find these settings in the Toshiba touch and launch.

    Is it possible that you have disabled touchpad function? Check the FN+F9.
    But if it doesnít help so the easiest way is to reinstall the touchpad driver and also the necessary utilities.

    Hi

    I donít know if this will help but you can check touch pad settings and check how wide scroll area on the right side is. There you can make it a little bit wider.

    Hello

    It is also possible that any installing stuff has negative influence on preinstalled driver and settings. If you have any created restore point before this happen try to roll back OS to earlier time. Other way you can save all your important data and reinstall unit with recovery media. Check if the problem will be solved on this way.

    I am pretty sure that it is a software problem and I donít believe that guys in the PC store can give you some better advice. Anyway, if you will solve it please let us know.
