    Mouse pad not scrolling

    This just happened randomly and I don't believe any settings even point to this, but with my Dell laptop, just randomly, my mouse touch pad has lost the ability to scroll. If i touch it, the mouse moves wherever I want it, but if I go to scroll up and down or left and right it just moves the mouse in that direction. Any suggestions?

    The Touchpad tab of the Mouse control panel is your best bet. You also could try a driver update. Going through Dell's support pages with your product's service code will identify the ones applicable to your machine. Unfortunately, they aren't filtered to exclude the ones that were preinstalled at the factory...

    I don't have a touchpad tab of the mouse otherwise I feel this would all be a lot more simple.

    I agree with Jefferson, you need to do some searching at Dell, maybe even a phone call to 'em. Sorry but I don't have access to a Dell laptop to try to help you find an answer.
