    Out of the blue...do you have a "scroll lock" function on the pad or a little button near the main pad? Perhaps silly of me to ask, but I used to accidently hit mine and it kept locking me out of that function.

    Do I even know what I'm talking about? Worth looking into maybe, perhaps...dunno?!

    I know nothing about computers..
    When my laptop did the exact same thing I updated the driver, now it works.
    Find an update.
    Just one more light and my collection is complete! Ok, maybe two..

    Ok I looked at my wifes Toshiba and it does not have a switch to turn off touch pad or features that I can find. But I would start by going to Control panel/ Hardware/Mouse. Click on Device Properties. This should pull up a window with the touch pad listed. Click on the Settings button. Select the Virtual Scrolling on the left side and make sure that it is enabled.

    Edit* The Touchpad controls are more easily accessed on her laptop by clicking on the touch pad icon in the system tray. (Looks like a touchpad with a flashing green dot) Then click on Pointing Device Properties. Then on Device Settings.

    Hope this helps!
