Windows 7: Touchpad Scroll Not Working

Touchpad Scroll Not Working

So I installed Windows 7 about two weeks ago (as a clean install instead of an update) and since then my touchpad scroll is no longer working...

I've Googled this problem a lot and I haven't come across a solution that has worked for me yet. I think I have the most up-to-date Synaptics driver ('Synaptics Pointing Device Driver' version 14.0.3).

So I don't know what to do..

I'm on a Toshiba Tecra A8.

Any help is really appreciated!

Ah yeah that worked! Thanks! I had seen your second link before, but assumed that wouldn't work since my laptop isn't Sony. But yeah the Alps Driver installation did the trick... despite Windows constantly telling me that I had the best driver installed already.

Took me a while to find a place to download the driver from though, so I'll just stick the link in here for anyone who's having the same problem that I had:

I was going to suggest Two Finger Scroll, handy application anyway.
