Try this if you use Internet explorer Go to tools ...internet options...advanced...allow smooth scrolling should be checked. If that does not work.

Make sure number lock is not on

Yes you can just unlock the number key. The other things are other things to try. Just try number key lock first. I only know the things that can cause the problem, I do not know which one will work.
