Windows 7: Synaptics touchpad lost scroll function

Synaptics touchpad lost scroll function

Hi there,

I have a Toshiba Satellite A300D that came with Vista, but recently my hard drive died and I installed Windows 7 64bit with the new one. My problem is that the Synaptics touchpad lost its scroll function, and Toshiba doesn't provide the drivers for Win7, only for XP and Vista (and those don't work, I've tried it).

What can I do to make it work again? Thanks!

Synaptics Touchpad
Hey, can I uninstall the synaptics touchpad in my laptop, and reinstall it again? Synaptics is not running on start-up but it is activated in msconfig, and CCleaner. Is it safe to uninstall and reinstall it again? If I uninstall it, will my touchpad still operate?
