Windows 7: Smart scrolling gone

Smart scrolling gone

I think "smart scrolling" is the right term. My laptop's touchpad has a vertical and a horizontal line that can be used to scroll up and down, or side to side, on webpages by dragging a finger across them. After replacing Vista with Win 7 this functionality disappeared. Does anybody know what settings to use to restore it? Thanks.

Hi larryq22,

Sounds like a driver issue. I don't see Win7 drivers for your laptop on Dell.com, but have you tried the Vista 32-bit one for Touchpad / Pointing stick? I know you already had Vista installed but try it anyway: Drivers & Downloads

Thanks Walker. I downloaded the file and so far so good. Haven't had odd problems typing, so I'm crossing my fingers that they're gone for good. Larry

Smooth scrolling?

I have searched, but not found the answer. I have my mouse/scroll set at 4 lines. If I want to scroll down a page-several lines- or even the whole page, after I tap the mouse/pad a few times the scrolling goes out of control!! It zooms either down/up, depending on which way I was going, so I...
