Pavilion x360 touchpad can't scroll

Q: Pavilion x360 touchpad can't scroll

Aloha! I just bought a pavilion x360 laptop for school and I use the touchpad to scroll up and down pages a lot. However, the touchpad for my laptop seems not working as well as it should be. When I tried to scroll down pages by using the touchpad but only the mouse is moving around on the page. What should I do so I can use my touchpad to scroll up and down? Mahalo!

Hello. I need help with my laptop. I did fresh install of Win10, downloaded WIN updates, downloaded and installed all drivers form HP site, but my touchpad is not working. When the instalation was fresh with no new drivers, touchpad worked, but after install of microsoft or HP drivers it stops working. I can see it in device manager, everything says that is working correctly, but there is no response to my touch. I tried uninstalling Synaptics driver from applications and also from device manager, after restart Touchpad is working, but than after instalation of any driver (HP, generic Microsoft or  newest Synaptics) and restart it stops working.  Any idea of how to fix it? I tried even to replace touchpad with but it does the same.  Thank you in advance. My laptop is not under warranty.

If you go to the mouse settings, in the ELAN section there is no option available to you, as if the drivers for the touchpad have been completely removed. Please can you help

I just purchased a new xps 15 and, unlike my family's touchpads and my old xps's touchpad, this one does not have side scrollbar. If it does, I am completely dumbfounded on how to activate it. I love the option of scrolling on the right side of my touchpad and I would enjoy having it on this computer.
 
Please help and thanks

A:How do i get scroll on my touchpad for my xps 15

I had the same problem until about 5 minutes ago. Go to control panel -->Switch to small icons --> Click "mouse" (far right column for me) --> Click "Device Settings" tab on the top right --> Click "settings" (on the middle right hand side) --> Double click "Scrolling" (second on list below "overview") --> Click "One-finger" scrolling--> Check the "enable vertical scrolling"  and "enable horizontal scrolling"
- 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
                         --Hope that helps :)

A: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.
 
 
Regards

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.

A: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.

Hello, I am using an HP Pavilion dm4-3050us with Windows 8.1, and the touchpad scrolling is not working. I upgraded exactly two weeks ago on October 17th, and the scrolling has been working perfectly fine until today. Since I discovered the problem, I have done everything I could. I reinstalled the driver, I restarted the computer multiple times, I have played with the settings, but nothing is working. There was another thread with the same problem, except that all the solutions that worked for those people did not work for me. I have multi-finger gestures turned on, and I have vertical scrolling turned on as well. What is interesting is that other gestures work perfectly fine, except for the gestures that require more than one finger. If I swipe in form the left side, I can switch between Windows 8 apps, and if I swipe in from the right side, the charms bar comes up. But I cannot scroll with two fingers, I cannot switch between apps with 4 fingers, and I cannot right click by tapping the touchpad with 2 fingers. These are all things that worked literally yesterday. Is there a reason that the touchpad can only register gestures that use one finger, but not those that use more than one finger? (When I try scrolling with two fingers, the mouse does not move. This tells me that the computer knows that I am trying to scroll, but is not doing it. I know this because when I try to scroll with two fingers on a page that cannot be scrolled, the mouse just stays in place.)&n... Read more

Hi. I'd like to make more use of TouchPad scrolling feature (by swiping near the edges of the trackpad), but UltraNav settings only let you control speed. It's unusable no matter what speed I set it to, because due to acceleration, it's always too slow or too fast. It takes incredibly delicate concentration and control to make pages scroll at the desired speed.Is there a way to turn off the acceleration somehow? Any 3rd party driver options? Thank you.

I have to manually go to Control Panel, Hardware, Mouse and just open the Synaptic program and then it works. 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.

hi,

I have a Sony Vaio laptop and recently the scroll on the touchpad stopped working. This is very irritating, because now i actually have to drag the bar to scroll through pages instead of using the scroll. I have gone to the option screen and still nothing. Please help.
 

A:Solved: scroll touchpad not working

Maybe the touch pad drivers are the problem.
Try re-installing the touch pad drivers.
