I have an NEC Versa L1100. I'm running Windows XP SP3.

When I disconnect my USB mouse, and use the laptop's touchpad, I find when I move the mouse cursor around the browser window, the page will scroll as if I am moving the scroll wheel on a mouse. It happens intermittently. I don't have any buttons pressed down as it happens.

What can cause this?

How can it be fixed?




It's probably the scrollbar at the right of the touchpad guy...just saying. I hate to point at the obvious, but....

  • IS there a scrollbar at the right of the touchpad? – Steve Dec 31 '10 at 15:17
  • I'm pretty sure I am using the centre of the touchpad, not the right hand side. – Steve Dec 31 '10 at 15:18
  • Actually, I think you might be right. – Steve Dec 31 '10 at 15:19
  • Is there a way to turn the scrollbar off? – Steve Dec 31 '10 at 15:42
  • that depends on the driver...check mouse options or any application that relates to the mouse(synaptic is a common driver software) – RobotHumans Dec 31 '10 at 15:48
