    Hi All

    First I lost the scrolling, vertical & horizontal enabling button grey out when trying, to tick them. I then down loaded the current driver. Tried FN-9/7, nothing worked
    Then I reverted to previous driver and that lost me the synaptic touch pad settings only a mouse shows.

    The touch pad works but still no scrolling and now the window to get to the settings has gone,

    I also cleared the system restore dates.
    On Window 7, help :(

    Hello

    For better understanding please offer some basic information:
    Which notebook model do you have?
    Do you use original Windows 7 you got with your notebook or you have installed own OS?
    Do you use 32 or 64 bit Windows7?

    Hello

    To be honest your description is not very clear and a little bit confusing so please offer more information as xaver already wrote.

    Generally speaking if you have problems with touchpad itself try to reinstall the touchpad driver. You need two drivers: Alps Electric and Synaptics.

    hello , sorry for poor post (novice!)

    I have windows 7 32-bit pre-installed with rescue disc program also pre-installed (have done that on two discs)

    Model is Toshiba satellite pro L450D 14V ( had extra 2gb RAM chip installed, only had 1 gb) It was supplied direct from BT after winning a competition.

    when scrolling stop working , it was featured in control panel/mouse which I could click on and get settings which is where the vert/horiz. enabling buttons are albeit they grayed out when I tried to click them on.

    SInce mucking about with drivers I now I have lost the synaptics touch pad feature, it only features a PS/2 compatible mouse but all I have is the touch pad, still workingl without scrolling ????

    Thanks for your interest
