Hi Guys,

Quick question ....
I've just been using my Sony SZ2VP here at work.
After leaving it idle for a few moments, i came back to find the touch pad was working in inverse.
If i drag my finger right, it goes left, up goes down and vice versa.
A mouse connected to the USB port works as normal.

Thought this was a bit odd,

Any ideas ? thoughts ? Solutions ??

Many Thanks In Advance,

If there really was a god, then why is my ass the perfect height for kicking ???

Check the mouse/touchpad section of your Control Panel. There should either be a "reverse" mouse setting (like is common in video games) or there'll be an "orientation" dialog that should allow you to change the orientation to set it back to normal.
