touchpad gets stuck in scroll mode.

I just purchased a new HP Pavilion dv7t-7000 and the touchpad is driving me crazy.  The touchpad is always getting stuck in scroll mode and I have to hit escape several time to get out of scroll mode.  Is there a way to disable this?

Re: touchpad gets stuck in scroll mode.

Hi,

 

I'd try a clean installation of the TouchPad driver as follows.

 

First, download the latest Synaptics driver installer on the link below and save it to your Downloads folder.

 

http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp56001-56500/sp56168.exe

 

Next, open windows Control Panel, open Programs and Features, right click the entry 'Synaptics Pointing Device Driver' and select Uninstall.

 

When this has completed, restart the notebook.

 

When windows has fully reloaded, open your Downloads folder, right click the Synaptics installer and select 'Run as Administrator' to start the installation.  When this has completed, restart the notebook again.

 

Further configuration options for your TouchPad ( including whether to Enable/Disable scrolling ) can be found on the link below.

 

Configuring The ClickPad.

 

Regards,
