Good pm! I have just installed windows XP on my laptop, and I generally used the default drivers, however, I lost my touchpad's scroll functionality because of this.
Should I use a synaptics device driver for this problem?
Aside from what I've mentioned, what other touch pad drivers can I use to solve this problem?
I really don't know what to do.
Please help me.
