    What are the specs of the touch pad? - you can normally find this in the device manager. Normally the first thing to check is under your control panel - printers and other hardware - mouse - you should be able to go in there and check the settings - you should see one for your touch pad and the scroll bar make sure its enabled. If you don't see that option or you are still having issues and its enabled try reinstalling the drivers for it.

    im not sure but from my experience whether the scroll works is kinda hit and miss, my dad's laptop scroller never worked, and at school we have laptops that we use in the it rooms, only half of their scrollers work, but i think the problem is that it doesnt correctly register the mouse, which means that it cant apply the drivers to it, i dont know how to get around this problem but i just thought i might give you this piece of info

    Its ok.... Fixed it.
    Found out that its a Synaptic, so downloaded the newest driver from their site. Then had to sort all the settings out.
    Thanks for all the help :)

    No problem - with touch pads its almost always either a matter of settings or drivers so its normally an easy fix:mrgreen:
