Windows 7: keyboard and mouse strange (no @ and no scroll)

keyboard and mouse strange (no @ and no scroll)

Hi, I have a very strange problem. Windows vista wont recognize my touchpad's scroll (when I move my finger up and down on the right side of the toucpad nothing happens). Ive tried fixing it in the control panel, but I apparently cant.
Also, I use a western spanish keyboard and I cant use @ (in spanish keyboard is (AltGr+Q)). I can only use it by changing the keyboard to English (Shift+2). Anybody has a solution??

A couple of points:

1) Are you on Vista or Windows 7?

2) Are you on a Mac?

3) Have you installed OEM drivers for your touchpad?
