    Touchpad
    Computer make/model: LG E500
    Operating system: Vista Home Basic 32-bit
    Exhibited issues: No up-scroll. I have a horizontal scroll bar on my touchpad as well which i can scroll to the right but not to the left.
    What you've tried: nothing. i read around and realized this was a known issue.
    What fixed it: Chromium build 2266 or later incorporates a bug-fix for this problem.

    another mouse related problem: my mouse (Pleomax laser mouse) has a scroll wheel that can side-scroll, but this functionality does not work with Chrome

    Hi there!
    I looked into this problem (cannot scroll up) and by examining Google Chrome I have released a program to automatically fix the issue.

    "The issue is caused by Google Chrome setting incorrect information about it's scroll bars. Scroll bars' positions appear to be at the top (or left if the scroll bar is horizontal). Some mouse software (i.e. the programs that run in the background/in your tray) use this information and do not send scroll up messages to Chrome (since the scroll bars already appear to be at the top). Mouse software which does not use this information or mouses that do not need software to help them scroll will therefore not be affected.

    It is possible to patch the mouse software, but it makes more sense to patch/fix Chrome."

    The program will quickly and automatically fix the "cannot scroll up using certain touch pads" issue for Google Chrome (until Chrome is fixed officially).

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

    You can download/read about it at

    Hope this helps!

    Amazing work, PaulusDev!

    Looks like this thread won't be needed in the same capacity anymore.

    Added a link to your fix in the master troubleshooting thread.
