    I recently bought an HP ProBook 4540S. The touchpad works smoothly on the left side. At the right side, scrolling works, but tapping won't.

    Is this a software or hardware problem?

    I finally found that the Synaptics touchpad setup was not compatible with HP 4540S and I tried for setup with HP drivers from the Internet. Now it works properly. It wasn't a hardware issue after all.

  • DaveDev

    Sometimes for no reason that I can observe my Synaptics touchpad will stop responding to scroll the scroll function (I swipe my finger down the right side). I then have to reboot to get it back. Does anyone know how to fix this? Preferably without upgrading the driver - I upgraded the driver before and it turned out to be crap. I don't want to do that again.

    I have an Inspiron 9400 with Windows XP Media Centre Edition

    Update:

    One trigger I've noticed for the touchpad to stop working is when working over Remote Desktop if the screen goes into power-saving mode.

    Another is when I watch Flash (I hate Flash!) videos on YouTube in full-screen mode.
