sounds odd, does the computer scroll up and down literally on its own with no help what so ever from you? Cause if this were the case i'd say maybe a problem with the keyboard.

But to go both up and down, on it's own Id think the stuck actions would cancel each other out unless they were just randomly firing. Did ya try changing the keyboard?

Perhaps try reinstalling your mouse drivers or download the newest mouse drivers.

Hey I had the same exact problem... this is what you need.
3 Q-Tips, a fillips screw driver and some hand sanitizer.
open you mouse *be careful* and soak the q tips in sanatizer. Then wipe the inside of the mouse and let it sit for a while. the wiping is to clean out any dust ect. also take a clean q tip (dipped in sanatizer) and wipe the laser area. Now with the dry clean Q-tip re-wipe the entire inside of the mouse; lens first and close it up and you are good to go!!!

-Knowledge obtained for experimenting with my own mouse:wahoo:

I'm pretty sure you've already solved this problem, aha.
But, to the people who are indeed having this problem, I had the same one.
I've had my computer for about 3 years, and trust me it does get a little dusty. So all of a sudden a few minutes ago the page just started scrolling up and down, so I go and troubleshoot.
Nothing.
I shortly found out, it wasn't the keyboard, it's the mouse.
So to everyone who has a laptop, the reason the page may be scrolling up and down on it's own is because there's dust or maybe crumbs under the buttons.
Just take something that's sharp and thin and kinda dig in there. ( i.e tweezers, a needle that you use for sewing, the led from a mechanical pencil, the sharp side of a push pin, a baby pin, a twisted paperclip that's formed into a long stick-like figure, the back of an earring, a nail used for hammering )
Or, you can just beat the crap out of the bottom of the laptop while it's upside down, which won't do any good.
Anyways,
Keep doubletapping or pressing the left button until it works again.
Sorry for the long reply.
You're Welcome~

I occasionally have this problem and I just "restart". The computer defaults and the problem is resolved. But, to say I know what causes it in the first place, I do not. Given that it only happens every once in awhile, I haven't put much effort into figuring out why it happens but for me, a simple reboot does the trick.
