Hi, My laptop is not loading it's Symnaptics Mouse scroll settings on startup (windows 10, HP Laptop 15-bs1xx). The only way I can fix the issue is to click on mouse settings, additional mouse options, click ok. Then it works, Very annoying to have to do this every time I start up my computer. I had previously found an old driver fixed the issue. But I am now having the same issue with the old and new driver. V188.8.131.52 and up. I believe it started after windows updates around august. Last time I tried fixing it crashed my whole laptop and I had to reset to factory. Do not want to go there again. I am usually pretty savvy on fixing my issues, but this one I can't fix. I believe many others a having the same issues but no fix on HP or microsoft or online elsewhere

@KL131 Welcome to HP Community!
If you've reinstalled windows via the factory reset, and yet the issue persists, you may want to run a hardware test to identify if this is either a hardware or software issue using the below steps before we proceed further:
Install the latest version of the HP Hardware diagnostics (UEFI) on your device using this link: Click here for details
- Hold the power button for at least five seconds to turn off the computer.
- Turn on the computer and immediately press Esc repeatedly, about once every second. When the menu appears, press the F2 key.
- On the HP PC Hardware Diagnostics (UEFI) main menu, click Component Tests.
- Click Touchpad Test.
- Click Run once, or Loop until error.
- While the test is running, the time remaining and test result for each component display on the screen.
If a component fails a test, write down the failure ID (24-digit code) for when you respond back to us.
Let me know how that pans out,

@KL131 If the tests have passed, it confirms this isn't a hardware malfunction, now that we know this is a software issue, I suggest you create a new user account and check if that works, if not, reset windows using the steps mentioned here.
