The other day while I was clearing some space on my Sony Vaio PCG-71312L, I accidentally deleted the touchpad's driver. The mouse itself is fine, it's just that the scrolling is not working.

I looked around for the CD that came with the laptop, but couldn't find it. Also, I tried searching for the drivers, but with no success. Can someone point me in the right direction?

I am looking for a solution that doesn't involve installing softwares, the driver will suffice.

Most Sony laptops use Alps touchpads. This is a link to a WIN7 64 bit driver package ALPS Windows 7 x64 You should be able to find an x86 driver with a bit of digging at Sony Support as mentioned by @slhck
