And on the NEC Versa M400 - though it's an old laptop. Where can we find the
latest drivers?
Jim  - Solution again   | |2008-09-13 02:26:48
like i said, go to your laptops website, in your case sean, the nec website,
search for your laptop and latest drivers and download the touchpad one again.
failing that, go to the synaptics website and search for the latest drivers from
there tho even they say its best to go to your own brands website.

I downloaded and installed the latest driver for the touchpad and the problem
remains. I'm on a Gateway T-1628.

For anyone who wishes to fix the issue quickly, I have released a patcher. You
can download it here:

Just run
chrome_patch.exe. It will patch chrome.dll to fix the issue.

FINALLY! If you’re having trouble with your synaptics driver not allowing you
to scroll in Chrome, go download this updated driver on the synaptics website
and then restart. fm

I tried the
patch and the “fixes”. This is the only thing that finally solved my
