The functionality that you want is present in the drivers and setup

I bought a Compaq Presario 3045US last week. The touchpad seems to
lack a lot of the functionality of others I have used - virtual
scrollbar on the side, the ability to "toss" the pointer to the

new driver or software to increase the features? I believe it is a
Synaptec touchpad.

have lost the touchpad control panel. The device manager says "PS/2
device, but nothing about the touchpad. It even says PS/2 device
when I am using the laptop without the external mouse - any

If Microsoft Intellimouse v4 is installed, it removes the special
features for Synaptics touchpad, although the basic PS2 functionality
