After installing a MS Wireless Notebook optical mouse 4000, I noticed that when the mouse is not connected that the Laptop's Alp Touchpad no longer scrolls. The Alp touchpad icon in the Systray has also disappeared. Under Device Manager there's no entry for the Alp touchpad any more, just an OS/2 mouse.
After reading similar threads in the forums, the Alp Touchpad drivers are reinstalled (+ a coupleo re-boots) if I uninstal the MS IntelliPoint 5.3 s/w as well as uninstalling the OS/2 mouse from Device Manager.
But I can't seem to get the Touchpad scrolling working WITH the MS 4000 Mouse installed as well ~ which is what I want. It is still possible to use the Touchpad, its just the scrolling that seems to be disabled.
Would greatly appreciate any further suggestions. Many thanks in anticipation.
