    I have an Inspiron 6000. The old hard drive crashed and I got a new one with Vista Business edition. Now I can't use the touchpad to scroll, and dragging things has become harder as well. I couldn't find any drivers for Vista. Any ideas? thx

    Load the Vista drivers for the Synaptics TouchPad would be my first step.

    Those drivers should be available at the Dell site if you do not have them and there should be a service tag # on the side or bottom of your laptop that from the support option at the Dell site should take you right to those drivers.
