Windows 7: Touchpad Scrolling Problem

Touchpad Scrolling Problem

After I installed Windows 7 (couldn't upgrade, had to do a custom install), the scrolling on the right side of my touchpad stopped working. I downloaded a new driver, but it still doesn't work.

When I go into the Synaptics device settings, it says that I have a "Standard Pointing Device" and when I look at the settings it only gives me options for two buttons (no scrolling options). I attached a picture of the options window I'm talking about.

Can anybody help?

My computer is an hp pavilion dv2000.

Same Problem

I too have the exact same issue. I have reinstalled my driver, and it still only ever shows that my touchpad is a "Standard Pointing Device", and I can no longer use my scroll function on my toughpad, super annoying. I am running an HP dv2915nr

Any suggestions anyone?
