Hi Still no joy its loaded Synaptics ps/2 port ive checked that the vertical and Hor boxes are tick but still cant get the scroll to work
Ok its not compatible with windows 10 sorry, I checked for windows 10 specific drivers and none have been developed.I am sorry but if you want to use it, you will need to revert back to windows 7To do thispen the Start menu and select Settings. Click the “Update & security” icon and select “Recovery.”You should see a “Go back to Windows 7” option. Click the Get started button to get rid of your Windows 10 install and restore your previous Windows install. Microsoft will ask you why you want to go back.Let this complete, then windows 7 is again installed, and it will function.else you will need to wait until a windows 10 driver has been developed but as of yet, HP have made no indication of this sorry.If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.Thank you
