Only in Chrome, or in other applications as well? Did you try restarting Chrome or rebooting Windows? – Gilles Nov 25 '10 at 0:35

You may have disabled the touchpad scrolling. It looks like your Eee PC laptop uses Synaptics Touchpad drivers.

Follow these steps...

  • Go to Start
  • Select Control Panel
  • Select the heading Hardward and Sound
  • Under the head Devices and Printers select Mouse
  • Select the tab Device Settings - (It should have a red icon on the tab too)
  • Click to highlight Synaptics Touchpad... (Right under the Devices)
  • Click on Settings...
  • Expand Scrolling by click on the [+] next to Scrolling
  • Click on One-Finger Scrolling
  • Put a check in the check box for Enable vertical scrolling
  • Repeat last step if you desire horizontal scrolling by checking Enable horizontal Scholling
  • Click Apply
  • Click OK
  • You are finish

I hope this works out. Will update my answer if more information is provide

Is it at all possible that you simply disabled it? On my HP, It will disable automatically when I plug in the minisensor for a wireless mouse.
