    I just reformatted the HDD on my girlfriends laptop and now the touchpad mouse is not working properly. The scroll wheel doesn't work and when scrolling down on a web page with the keyboard it goes step by step. Are their any settings that I need tochange to make it work right?

    Some touchpads require specific drivers installed. Did you install these from the manufacturer? This is the integrated one on the laptop not add-in devices?

    Yes it is the integrated one that is below the keyboard. I installed all of the drivers that came on the disk with the computer.

    Ok thanks man... I went to HP's website (I wouldn't own an HP BTW ;)) and downloaded the touchpad driver. It works now.
