pointer touchpad problem

hey guys i was wondering if you could help me try and sort out my touchpad on my DELL INSPIRON M5010

the pad itself works but i am meant to be able to scroll down webpages and flick back pages on the internet.

This is very frustrating as i have to coninualy use the up and down buttons on the side of ie

i have checked the drivers and they are all up to date

any help would be greatly appreciated

I went through the same problem so I got a wireless mouse.
My problem was I have big hands for the tiny touch pad.
