    Scroll on touchpad


    Hello everyone,

    I just installed the Windows 8 consumer preview and everything seems to be working fine, except I can no longer scroll using my touch pad on my Sony Vaio. Does anyone know how I can fix this or of a driver that is compatible with Windows 8?

    Thanks for anyones help!

    On installing, Win8 doesn't seem to recognize the trackpad as a trackpad. If you go to control panel, you just see the mouse.

    Are there trackpad drivers for Windows 8? Class drivers?

    Easiest fix is a little mouse.

    If you go to the website of the people that make your computer you should be able to get a drive for the touchpad, I have an acer laptop and mine wouldn't work till I went to acer.com and downloaded the synaptic driver for it
