Touchpad Driver that Unlocks Multi-Touch on older Touchpad

Q: Touchpad Driver that Unlocks Multi-Touch on older Touchpad

Haven't updated your laptop's trackpad driver lately? Then you may well want to consider doing so, at least if your laptop is equipped with a Synaptics trackpad. As a user on the Hardware Zone forums discovered, the latest Synaptics driver seems to enable multitouch gestures on older laptops that didn't previously support them, including two-finger scrolling, and three-finger click. What's more, while the drivers themselves come from HP, they should work just fine on other laptops with a Synaptics trackpad. Hit up the link below to try it out for yourself.

Hi there! I have a very annoying problem with my touchpad, I cant figure out how to enable the multi-touch gestures and drivers don't seem to work at all. First of all, my laptop is an Acer Aspire E5-572G-75MW. The drivers on the cd are for windows 8, (there's a synaptics and a elantech driver, when i try installing both of them, they install and at the end i get and "not needed, no device for update present"). I tried installing an elantech for w7 driver and i got an "ready to use" status at the end but absolutely nothing changed, no item in install/uninstall options, no item in control panel or in the mouse category, nothing. I tried the same thing with a W7 synaptics driver and i get the same status at the end but here i get two options:

Again nothing changed, even after restarting. I am unable to see any settings regarding my touchpad, this is all i get in the control panel mouse category:

That's all i get no matter what i try to install, i can't get anything to stick around, i've tried similar laptop's drivers, again with no luck at att and sucks since my touchpad has the clicking buttons integrated into the touchpad, its really annoying trying to scroll something. I tried enabling two-finger scrolling through some registry tricks but i couldnt find the right items and it didnt work. I dont even know what my touchpad's manufacturer is, all i get is that HID compliant mouse. Thank you!

A:Touchpad multi-touch/driver/synaptics problem

I downloaded the manual. The touchpad is explained on p17 of the manual. Since the notebook came with 8.1 and I can only find drivers for Windows 8, you may not get full usage out of the hardware because you are not running the correct version of Windows. The best drivers come from the hardware manufacturer and they are no providing any Win 7 drivers.

Hello,

I use Windows 7( 64bit) in my notebook.

The most recent version of synaptics touchpad driver (16.2.21) was installed.

In device manager, Synaptics PS /2 Port TouchPad is well operated.

However, I cannot select the Synaptics touchpad in the mouse properties of the control panel.

In 'button' of the mouse properties, 'wheel mouse connects PS/2 port' is the only option I can select. (The sentence "Wheel mouse connects PS/2 port" is interpreted sentence since my window is not Eng. version.)

Because of this, I cannot set the multi-touch function in the device setting, installed by the driver, of the mouse property.

How can I solve this problem?

Plz, give me your solution ~~

A:Synaptics touchpad is not operated well, especially multi-touch

Welcome to the Seven Forums

Do you have the Device Settings tab on the mouse properties window?
Did you update the drivers yourself?

You may want to go to your computer manufacturers website and download the drivers they recommend and uninstall the ones you are using now and install them.

Hi all,

I just figured out that whenever I open a PDF file, whether it be within a browser window (I use the newest version of FireFox, 4.0), as a downloaded file, or even just opening Adobe Reader 9.4.3 on my computer, the program/PDF file window freezes for at least 20 seconds to a minute or so, then unfreezes and lets me continue with my work. Everything goes back to normal, except for the features my multi-touch touch pad has, such as scrolling and zooming in and out.
I checked for updates using Adobe Reader's Help Menu link, but it said there were none. This issue is pretty annoying because the only thing that seems to solve it is if I restart my computer, and it happens at least a few times a week if not more. Any idea why this is happening and what I can do to fix it or prevent it?

Thanks!

Hi all,
I'm currently operating with a Dell Latitude (E6410) running Windows 7 32-bit. I have the default Alps touchpad built-in, and was recently ecstatic to find the driver for multi-touch on the Dell Support page, something I figured I'd never get privileged to since this doesn't have a Synaptics touchpad.
Everything works as it;s supposed to, as far as the options go under the Dell Pointing Devices menu. However, I noticed that two-finger options are missing, specifically a two-finger right click. This is odd, seeing as there are plenty of other two-finger options, and since two-finger right click has become a standard with multi-touch touchpads.
So my question is, is there anything I can do to get two-finger right click? I don't see any options officially provided by Dell, so I'm totally okay with installing software or drivers from somewhere else, as long as they work. I haven't been able to find anything myself, as it seems every driver and software in the world is developed with Synaptics in mind.

i'm using windows 7 and have installed version 16.1.6.0 drivers for synaptics touchpad.

i want to enable chiral scroll motion, as well as to adjust the sensitivity for the touchpad, as the cursor keeps jumping jumping around when i type, making me keep having to correct gibberish.

i know this version of the drivers supports chiral scroll, multi-touch, and other adjustments to touchpad function, but when i pull up the device settings for the "PS/2 mouse port compatible touchpad", the only menu options it shows are "overview" and "buttons", which only contain the patent notices and button actions. but otherwise, there is no way to change the functionality of the mouse at all. none of the usual menu options are there.

i've reinstalled the drivers, tried other versions, and rebooted a million times, and nothing seems to help. i know the capability is there, but i just can't access it for some reason...

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. it's impossible for me to get anything done like this.

thanks so much!!

As many of you have come to find out, some of the new drivers for windows 10 on dell laptops are messed up - you can no longer navigate back and forward while surfing in a browser with three finger multi-gestures - arguably one of the must useful gestures. I had this problem with the touchpad on my e5450. After 2 hours of trial and error, this is how I fixed it:
1. Uninstall the current touchpad driver - confirm that the DellTPad folder in C:\Program Files is empty(there may be a file left that you can't delete, but that's ok)
2. Restart your computer.
3. Download and install the windows 7 driver -  you will need to restart.
4. Navigate to the DellTPad folder again.
5. Now you will need to change the compatibility of all the application files(.exe) to windows 7(it may only need to be one or two files but I changed the 6 there just in case). To do this, right click on each file > properties > compatibility > change settings for all users > check mark windows 7 and run as administrator. Do this to all the application files but NOT Apoint - it will not auto-startup if you do.
6. Restart
7. Open the dell touchpad properties and adjust your multi gesture settings.
Note: while this method worked for me, your system might be different so ymmv.

As per the query we understood that you facing issue with touchpad in your Lenovo Y50 laptop.
 
As you have mentioned that the mouse properties are graded out, as you have also mentioned that the driver has been reinstalled hence suggest you to reinstall the operating system and check for the issue.
 
Before reinstalling the operating system please take a data backup.
 
Hope this helps. Do post back if the issue persists!

Hi all,on my ideapad 300s the multi touch funtionality and gestures as described in the Synatics System Control Panel are not working. For example I can scroll with two fingers but I can not swipe left/right with three fingers although this setting is checked by default. Clicking with three fingers should invoke Cortana, but it doesnt do that either.The little MoodPad tool shows all fingers, so the hardware is working.Is this supposed to work on the ideapad 300s? Thank you all for the help!

After installing a new motherboard on my Lenovo Y50-70 Touch with Windows 10 Home x64, Windows has decided that my Synaptics touchpad is an Elan touchpad and installed the drivers for it. This stopped all multi-touch gestures but most importantly two-finger scrolling from working. The Elan Control Center is installed and shows that they're enabled but they still don't work.

I've tried to install the Synaptics drivers but they never successfully get applied. The bundled drivers from the Lenovo website also think I have an Elan touchpad and install the drivers for it, again though the mult-touch gestures don't work. The generic drivers from Synaptics don't work either.

It's driving me up the wall having to use the keyboard or dragging the pointer over to the scrollbar every time I want to scroll up or down.

I need some help trying to get this fixed. Thanks.

The ELAN touchpad delays/lags a bit when my finger first touches the pad. The mouse on the screen "jumps" a bit to compensate the delay. Seems like it is deliberately done to prevent accidental mouse movement upon click.

Hey, I recently got a Toshiba P30 Notebook, Installed Norton Internet Security 2005 on it and kept getting an error message saying that it can't be reinstalled during startup, so as an attempt to fix that I looked through the startup options in the registry, and while i was at it got rid of a few other startup options that I thought I wouldn't need,
but some adverse affects occurred, the touch pad's touch and launch feature (hold down a corner of the touch pad and you get shortcuts to stuff) doesn't work on it, and I can no longer scroll with the side and bottom of my touch pad and being stupid, i didn't backup the keys I deleted.. so I don't know what I need to restore.. I tried re-enabling everything in msconfig, using system restore, and using "last known good configuration" at windows startup.. i called Toshiba tech support and they told me to use system restore.. I also tried reinstalling a bunch of mouse related drivers, but to no avail.. according to the touch and launch program, touch and launch is enabled, and I can't find the settings for scrolling with the touch pad..

the touch pad does work..

someone please help me! this is getting quite annoying..

I'm not computer savvy, and I am not entirely sure this is the proper place to ask a question for help, but I've noticed and dealt with over time that my USB mouse seems to click multiple times. I would tap my touchpad from time to time to get exact clicks when needed, but ever since I started reorganizing files which includes clicking and dragging, I've come across issues. So my USB mouse and my touch pad seem to have issues with being consistent with clicking. If I hold down the click on the touchpad it might spitter to clicking, letting go, then clicking again. Or it might click multiple times, and rarely will it not click.I believe I noticed a difference after I updated to windows 10, and I thought the issue was just my USB mouse with perhaps dropping it on the floor and it developing an issue. Could anyone please help me resolve this?I believe this is the laptop I'm using Y70-70 Touch Laptop (Lenovo)

Hello,

I have a Dell Latitude D630 laptop that has issues. Sometimes the touchpad works, and sometimes it doesn't. I've noticed when it doesn't work, the icon in the tray has disappeared or never booted up to begin with. Sometimes it boots up and sometimes it just doesn't even boot up to the tray at all. And at other times, it does.
(Along with this, maybe it's just a coincidence, but I've been working on this for days and days but when the touchpad doesn't work, the keyboard acts up too!) This might have nothing to do with it at all.

I've done a complete reformat of the hard drive, installed Win XP Professional, reinstalled drivers over and over. Been to the Dell website and have all the newest drivers.
When I reinstall the touchpad drivers, it does work once again, but this seems to be short lived.
The laptop is 4 years old...seems strong otherwise, can handle multiple tasks fairly well, has a dual core installed.
I can't figure it out.
Can anyone help?

Thank you!!
Pam

We just got a Dell XPS-15z, and, we have questions about scrolling on the Cypress touchpad using the Cypress drivers.

When scrolling down (either one finger or 2 fingers), when you hit the bottom of the touchpad, is there any way for the scrolling to continue without your having to lift your finger(s) back to the top of the touchpad? On other Dell laptops, I have Chiral motion, or the scrolling continues so long as your finger is at the bottom of the touchpad? I tried enabling the "Continued Motion" option just in case that was what did it, but that did not seem to work.

Which brings up another question re what "Continued Motion" does.

Also, is there any manual/help document for this driver either on the internet, or in the software itself?

I looked on the forum and on the internet, and couldn't find any answers.

I just received a Z500 Touch with Windows 8 yesterday, and I decided that today I'd like to play some first-person games. I found that my mouse would not move while I was walking on the game (i.e. using WASD/Arrow Keys/Space) and so I could not move in the desired direction or look at a certain thing without releasing all keys and using the Touch pad.  Obviously, this isn't great when in active parts of the game - you can't stay still while aiming without cover! I looked online to see if there were any fixes, I found a few, but they were for Dell laptops or not for Elan. I tried going into regedit from cmd and trying to change the "DisableWhenType_Enable" value to "0", and the same with "DisableWhenType_AllAreas", but to no avail. Is there a fix for this, or is it just me being blindly stupid and missing a massive answer? Thanks,Darthnoodles

Hello Everyone,

My problem started after updating windows 8.1 to windows 10, of course!
First the touchpad just stopped working, for no reason.

My solution was to uninstall the drive and restart the laptop. And from time to time I had to do this proceed. Two weeks ago windows updated, and the touchpad issue's gone. . Unfortunately, another one appeared.

The feature "mousekey", which is turn it on at ease access to use the numeric keys to use them as a mouse, It's turning itself on. And doesn't matter how many times I turn it off, few seconds and it's on again.

I've tried uninstalling the drive, which after windows the last updating was "ELAN".

Then I replaced by the Toshiba drivers, which is "Synaptic", and uninstalled the drives ,the problem is the same. Because of that, I can't use my numeric key, which is annoying!! If anyone can come up with something I will be grateful.

Hello,

#1 For some reason my touchpad on my HP 15 (2015 model with 8.1, now upgraded to Windows 10 1511) freezes. I hate that when it happens, you cant use it for 20 or 30 seconds or so. I close my lid and open it back up and it works normal, but then after a little bit it starts doing it again. My driver is up to date, I think it maybe Synaptics? If I need to give more info, please say!

#2: When I scroll on my touchpad up words it opens the start menu every so often when I am scrolling a lot, but when I didn't even open or even get near it or press Windows key. What is causing this? I hate it when it does this and screws up my readings then it stops scrolling and focuses more on the start menu then I have to click out of the menu and go back to what ever I was doing.

Thanks!

The problem is simply that the driver fails to load every other restart or so. This happens both in regular and safe mode. I have uninstalled the driver from Device Manager many, many, many times to let Win7 reload it but the same problem keeps happening.
 
Any thoughts?

A:Touchpad Driver

Hi
Are You talking about the Lenovo Touchpad driver?
If So try uninstalling it and see how well the Windows driver works. As I remember the one that comes in Windows should work OK.
 
Good Luck

I just received a new P50 and noticed that the left button below the touchpad was registering a double-click whenever I pressed it. I rolled back the driver from the most recent (July 2016) to the previous one from 2015 and the issue seems to be resolved. Anyone else experience this? BTW, I'm using Windows 10.

Hello,
I just bought a Samsung np300e5z-s04 and i installed the ELAN touch pad driver on the CD included. The problem is that every time i start the notebook i have to go to Control Panel-> Mouse-> ELAN-> Options->OK to activate Scrolling, Zooming and all that. I'd be forever grateful if someone would give me some advice- some settings, or should i reinstall the driver and how to do all that.
I apologize if this thread is not in the right category :D
Thank you in advance!!

A:touchpad driver not working

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

Pressing Fn + F5 will make sure your touchpad is enabled. Besure that it is enabled then restart. Does the problem still happen?

If yes then you can redownload the correct driver at samsung.com.

I have a 2 week old Inspiron 2 in 1 15 7558 i5 8G 500GHD. Running Windows 8.1 from factory.
The problem is I cannot control the touchpad. The biggest issue is tap to click. The entire pad including  the  buttons move the mouse and reacts to tap to click. This is very frustrating because when I touch the pad all kinds of crazy mouse clicks register or when I try to click a button the mouse cursor moves because the button is part of the touch pad.
All I want to do is disable tap to click. When I open control panel/mouse there is no touchpad tab nor controls for the touchpad. In device manager the driver for the touchpad/mouse shows up as a MS Mouse driver from 2008 which seems very wrong, especially since it came this way from the factory. I have checked the Dell driver site for a different driver both by model number and service tag, no touchpad driver or app. I have found synaptics, alps, ealn and Cyprus drivers on the web but none of them work.
Any fix for this? Seems like disabling touch to click should be a no brainer.
Thanks
Don

>>BTW your link goes to the 7568 and I have the 7558oh,sorry...I'm not a native speaker of English, and then apologize when there is a mistake.Methods that are introduced in this page(www.ryukent.com/.../fixed-install-synaptics-touchpad-driver-windows-8-1), I think it's probably the same way as you did.and, there is a description that I think it important. My System do not Display Synaptics Tab in Control Panel :( But Run Program Files \ Synaptics \ SynTP \ SynTPEnh.exein this case, I think that even if there is no tab of synaptics to control panel,the installation has been successful.Thus, if registry information on synaptics is recorded and customize it, I think it is possible to invalid tap to click.The registry entry of my laptop with synaptics is in HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Synapticsis there records of registry on synaptics in your pc?
At the same, either, but this is not a solution, is it possible to use the function of this software?forum.tabletpcreview.com/.../twofingerscroll-v1-0-7-update-two-finger-scrolling-done-right-more.38405I usually use the one of the functions that are provided by this software, -  when you are touching with one finger, will click when you tap on the other one finger -by this function , I make it easier to click after moving mouse cursor with trackpad.this software is for trackpad of synaptics ,so I hope this app help to use trackpad of your laptop.

I have recently installed 7 on my Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop, which was originally running Vista. Now that I have 7, I cannot find a way to change my touchpad sensitivity or enable scrolling on the touchpad.

I downloaded the Synaptics touchpad driver, and a Synaptics 'Device Settings' tab becomes available when I go to mouse properties in control panel. However, when I click on 'Settings' in this tab, the window that opens only has two menu items: Overview, and Buttons. There are no options to change sensitivity or enable scrolling.

Does anyone know what I can do to enable scrolling and adjust the sensitivity? It's very important, as I can't even type without the cursor jumping around due to sensitivity.

Just Installed (clean install) Windows 7 64 bit on my laptop today, what a pain, tried an update first on my 32 bit but had problems so I decided to go ahead with installin 64 bit as my computer was compatible.

Anyway, got it installed and I'm re-installing my software.

Main problem is I can't seem to get a driver for my touchpad on my laptop which is a Fujitsu Siemens just over a year old. Fujitsu do not have 64 bit drivers but I got one from Synaptics.com which is supposed to be compatible and signed but when I try to run it I get the error message that it is not a Win32 app.

Hello

I've just got a new Samsung Laptop, and it has a precision touchpad (from Synaptics) in it. I'm trying to find a way to disable the "Precision" bit of it, so I can use synaptics own drivers, which have more options (specifically, the palm control on it is awful, and the cursor jumps all over the screen when typing, and selects different input areas, etc. and I want to enable one finger scrolling, which isn't possible with Windows/precision). However, I'm really struggling to do this. I've downloaded the drivers from Synaptics site, but when I disable the device, install this driver (by manually selecting it using have disk), and restart, the touchpad doesn't work at all. If I install the driver by running setup, it appears to install fine, but makes no difference. If I let Windows choose the driver, it reverts back to the precision settings that I don't want!

Been searching all day trying to find something, but no joy - any suggestions?

Thanks

Hi,
My touch-pad does not work anymore, so i have tried several drivers from synaptics and so on. It gave me some results, but after some time, the touch-pad just went on and off completely random. After this, the touch-pad died, and has not worked since. I have tried drivers, drivers and more drivers. Nothing seems to be working. I'm able to go into "Dell touchpad" then when i try to push the "touchpad settings button" nothing happens - does not react at all. Hopefully someone can help me

The only thing I'd tell you is look in the BIOS for touchpad options. Run Dell diagnostics by pressing F12 and booting with diagnostic partition. It may be able to test the touchpad so you can rule out windows problem or PC problem.

If not, it's dead and they'll need to replace your palmrest. If you have still under warranty you may have next day onsite or return to depot warranty. The former is better.

My laptop's touchpad works better when the generic windows driver is installed, rather than the Synaptics driver. Except the generic driver doesn't have scrolling capabilites. Is there an alternate driver for Vista laptops besides Synaptics??

The specific problem is the touchpad click. It takes 3-4 touches to get a click. I modified the settings to the most sensitive, yet this doesn't solve the problem. It clicks every time on the first point without the Synaptics driver.

Hi all

I recently performed a full format and reinstall of vanilla Windows 7 Ultimate on an Acer 6920G. It has a scroll line beside the touchpad so I installed the appropriate Synaptic driver (SynTPEnh.exe) which works successfully. The problem is that ewvery time I reboot the driver automatically asks to be reinstalled. If I run it the touchpad works as expected but if I cancel it then it's as if the driver was never installed. Strangely, Programs and Features shows a listing for 'Synaptics Pointing Device Driver' before I run/cancel the install request. I've tried the obvious things - uninstalling, re-downloading, reinstalling, etc - to no avail and I have no idea why the driver would get stuck in such a weird loop. Any suggestions as to why it happens or how to fix it would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Everytime I have restarted my computer since last night the driver for my touchpad has appeared in my taskbar. It's slightly annoying, and I can't get rid of it. I have reinstalled the driver from Sony's website, toyed with properties, and yet it still shows up each restart. If I close the application, my touchpad will not work properly (ie shortcuts non-functional). The driver is from ALPS.

For the Dell moderators monitoring this forum...please discuss providing non-Microsoft touchpad drivers.  My primary complaint for my machine is the touchpad.  After reading several other forums with similar complaints, there seems to be a lot of people that insist that the Dell XPS touchpad issues stem from using Microsofts circa 2006 generic "precision touchpad" driver.  There isn't much ability to adjust settings with it, and the 2-finger scroll function is terrible.  I have tried some other suggested solutions, like installing generic Synaptics drivers, and they fix some things, but introduce other issues as well.  Can Dell please consider releasing some better drivers to improve the performance of the touchpad?

Hi!
About 2 months ago I bought this super gaming laptop by Toshiba(on sale 1 yr old and guarantee expired)(Store didn't tell me that part)and of course, I use it for gaming.
Last month I was into FPS and the touchpad kept getting in my way since the palm of my left hand kept swiping over it and I got killed easily.
therefore, to get rid of the problem, I disabled it from BIOS ( the updated 2.10 BIOS version ) and when I got out of the FPS spirit, I wanted to re-enable it again. but for my surprise it wasn't working!
I tried EVERYTHING I could think of.
-returning bios to original settings
-recovering my laptop to out-of-box state
but nothing.

does anyone here have ANY idea of how I can re-enable it again?

PS: Talked with a Toshiba representative and he didn't help me at all!

Try looking in control panel for mouse , see if it can be enabled from there.

You can also try hitting the fn key and f9 at the same time. On Toshiba that should lock and unlock the touchpad.

Hi folks,
I've got an annoying problem on a Compaq Presario 1510 laptop with XP home. There's this touchpad with a seperate scroll button. It comes with a "Synaptics pointing device driver" that lets you configure the scroll button and the extra functions of the touchpad (like edge motion, edge scrolling, sensitivity, slow motion, ...). Very often (every other day but usually sooner) this scroll button is without functions. The up-down-left-right functions are gone. The other functions of the touchpad remain as they were.
The only solution so far is to uninstall and reinstall this driver (it's the latest from Compaq). I keep this driver permanently on the hard disk just for this purpose. This is driving me crazy since it sometimes happens twice a day. It does not happen during working on the laptop, but after rebooting the functions are gone.
Don't know what's causing this behaviour. Is it the driver or (more likely) maybe a program that's allergic to this driver?

If anybody out here has an idea, it would be much appreciated!

Thanks, WSE

So today i installed the drivers for my razer deathaddder mouse on my laptop. The installation went fine, but the problem is it seems to have taken over or just messed up the configuration for my touchpad. After installing, the touchpad moved really slowly even though i hadn't changed any settings, and the acceleration had turned off.

I decided to uninstall the drivers to reverse the problem, but it didn't change. I then uninstalled and reinstalled the touchpad drivers (latest synaptics drivers, same ones i had installed before), but this didn't solve anything either. I've tried fiddling around with the mouse settings but everything is configured the way it was before, it's just not the same.

I want my touchpad to go back to the way it was. Is there any way to get all the mouse settings back to the way they were when i installed windows or something like that?

I have a Lenovo Ideapad Y510P with Windows 8.1. For months or longer, I have been having an issue with the touchpad software. After days of use it will stop responding to advanced commands like two finger scrolling unless I restart the computer. If I try to access the icon in the right corner on the taskbar, the application will not open. It cannot be right clicked. If I try too much the taskbar freezes. I tried to access Mouse in control pad - no response, I couldn't access it. I tried to look for updates for the driver and it would always say it is totally updated or when I manually download one it would say that it is already installed or something.

So today I decided I would fix this problem. I uninstalled the application, and removed the driver in the Drivers section in control panel. I downloaded the program again from the Synaptics site for my computer and tried to install.

I never pressed no the multiple times I tried to install and install would always fail after about 15 seconds. I then looked for traces of Synaptics on my computer in Program Files and Driver folder. Deleted all Synaptics folders and emptied recycling bin.

Hi There,

I have a synaptics touchpad driver installed on my laptop it is listed in my mouse options under devices settings as "Synaptics Pointing Device - v25.0.4" and under devices in the same tab the name is listed as "Synaptics touchpad v7.2".

The problem I am having is that in the devices settings tab I have checked the box that says "Disable internal pointing device when external USB pointing devices is attached" because frequently the mouse cursor will jump around the screen when typing and mess up what I am doing. Problem is that when I want to use the touchpad and unplug the mouse, the touchpad will work fine until I shut down the computer. On startup (whether clean boot or restoring from standby) the touchpad will no longer work (with or without a mouse connected). When this happens I have tried a fresh reboot of the laptop, but the problem remains. I have tried reconnecting my mouse before shutting down or closing the lid of my laptop but the problem persists. Some times when using the touchpad the power cord on my laptop unplugs and when I plug it back in the touchpad no longer works, yet when I unplug the cord it will work again. I don't get any error messages when any of these things happen, they just happen without warning.
When I go into my mouse settings and go to the device settings tab, the devices list is now empty and all other options are greyed out, including the check box to disable the touchpad when a mouse is connec... Read more

That's a fairly common issue and my wife and daughter solved it by getting Toshiba Notebooks that have a switch between the touchpad and the keyboard to turn the touchpad off, both use a external mouse. The problem stems from the sensitivity of the touchpad and where a person's thumbs want to rest while typing. Adding to the problem is the type of touchpad that has the vertical and horizontal scroll areas.

I'd go into Device Manager and uninstall both instances for the touchpad and reboot, should install the drivers again, handy when an installation gets corrupted.

Touchpad just stopped working while I was using it. Here's what's going on:

Fn + F7 does nothing
Synaptics ps/2 Port Touchpad shows in Device manager, however it is hidden and has a yellow exclamation point. Error code: This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed. (Code 24).

I have updated the drivers from the Gateway website by first uninstalling the drivers that were present. No go. I then updated the drivers from the synaptics website via the same method, nothing. I've tried searching for a driver via device manager....nothing.

As I mentioned, I tried Fn+F7 and nothing happened. Also I notice that the driver software is not loading in the tray like it used to and I can't even make it run by trying to open the .exe file.

Any ideas? I've been searching for an answer for this for a while with no luck.

I currently have two issues with my drivers.

My touchpad has completely stopped working, which is a minor inconvenience at this point given that I can still use a mouse. However, I would still appreciate a solution as to how to fix this.
Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface will not start. I have tried uninstalling it and installing it again, but there is no change.
If anyone could help with these issues, I would be most appreciative.

Keyboard and Touchpad Crashes with Windows Update KB 890830 -
Malicious Software Tool - March 2009.
After installing the above update on a Fujitsu Lifebook E 8410 Laptop
(Windows Vista Business) , I lost use of both my Keyboard and my Touch
Pad. The wired USB Mouse works OK. Used Windows Restore and the
system returned to normal.

When installing KB 890830, my Bit Defender 2009 Virus Scanner identifies a
Trojan.Generic.1487884 (file reference is US30Kbd2K.sys) in
C:\Windows\System32\Drivers and deletes same. Also, when running
Windows Defender on its own, Bit Defender again pops up and also deletes
file US30Kbd2K.sys.

My keyboard drivers are listed in Devise Manager as i8042prt.sys,
kbdclass.sys and US30Kbd2K.sys - the latter is possibly a trojan. However,
when US30Kbd2K.sys is removed (either manually or by Bit Defender) the
keyboard and touch pad will not work.

Can you suggest please how I might overcome this problem. I have curently
removed KB890830 (March 2009) from my system to keep it working.

Cheers

I recently gave vista the boot installed windows 7 on my Toshiba satellite A200-FT3 laptop. Everything went great however the touchpad doesn't seem to be functioning.

I've already installed the latest synaptic driver. The device manager even says that the device is 'working properly' however i can't get the pointer to move using the touchpad.

The 'Fn' functions work:
Fn+F7 to brighten
Fn+F6 to darken.

EXCEPT the touchpad: Fn+F9.

Does anybody have any ideas? =[

A:Touchpad Mouse driver not working

That is honestly something I have not experienced.
Did it work before you up installed the touch pad driver?
Have you checked all the setting making sure something funky didn't get clicked, by the ghost of vistas past?

Have you ran windows updates, after installing the drivers?
Have you tried uninstalling the driver then running win updates?

Are you getting tired of my questions?
If yes, Im done
If no, I can make some more up for you :P

Hi! I've been trying to solve a problem with my mother's netbook for some time now....Don't know what's causing the problem. Details are below:

Type of computer: Asus Eee PC, running Windows XP (purchased Fall 2009)
Background: no P2P, other file sharing, has McAffee protection installed

Symptoms:
1) upon startup, touchpad does not work--must use left click
Usually goes away after user resolves issue 2)
2) Any empty field (such as the Run command, or sign-in to Gmail) is autofilled with ;;;;;;;;;;;. Once user deletes the ;;;;;;;, issues 1) and 2) are resolved
3) repeated boink-boink-boink sounds, like a command was entered too many times

Attempted (and failed) solutions to date;
1) full McAffee system scan
2) CHKDSK C: /F /R run in safe mode
3) checked Task Manager for suspicious programs/activity levels
4) reinstalled touchpad and keyboard drivers, adjusted settings
Any suggestions on what else I can try?
Thank you!!!

Installed 32-bit Win 8.1 onto a Dell D610 (Pentium M 1.86GHz 2GB RAM) and it really works very well. Except for one nagging problem - the 4 left/right click buttons do not work! I have tried several drivers and all give full touch pad functionality (scroll and tap/click) and the keyboard stick works - but both sets of left and right buttons refuse to do anything. All worked with Win 7, so I assume it is a driver problem. I currently have a Logitech USB wireless mouse attached which works fine, but I would like to get the buttons on the laptop functioning.
Any ideas which driver may work?

Hello Procrastinus,

I'm surprised you were able to get Win 8.1 installed and working with that older hardware. Anyway, can you tell us the touchpad driver version you are currently using so we have a baseline for investigation?

The touchpad on my HP G62 laptop was less responsive than normal. I tried changing the properties with no improvement. So I went to HP help and noticed that there was a driver update for this device. So I ran the update. Then the touchpad barely worked at all and a notice box said the driver was incompatible with current system. The advice on the web included more than one remark advising to not bother with the Synaptics website as it is unreliable. I did it anyway. Synaptics recognised I had a legal copy of Windows 7 Home and I downloaded the suggested driver. Which actually was a new version entirely. Now the pad is back to life just like old times. The HP update was outdated. Every time I have used any HP updates I run into problems. I suggest HP users forget all about the "Support Assistant" and seek more credible update sources. Thnx, gnuguy.

So I wanna install it for my Vista Ultimate, but none of the editions will install properly. The version for XP installs properly but I cannot configure its settings ... The Vista version doesn't install completely. I really like the virtual scrolling feature, so is there an alternative?
I installed an earlier version (for XP) and it works, but I can't change the settings. I click the icon in the tray, click Device Settings tab, and click Settings under Devices. Normally a box should pop up but for me nothing at all happens.

I have good news for laptop users with built in ALPS Touchpads. Acer/Gateway (same company) have been generous to create a new driver for Windows 8 32/64-bit users.

To make sure that your ALPS Touchpad may be compatible with this new driver for Windows 8, make sure that before upgrading to Windows 8, in Windows 7 open Device Manager, check the "Mice and other pointing devices" category and your Touchpad should be listed as "ALPS Pointing-device".

If it is, then you are a candidate to install the newly released drivers. Click the link for a direct download from Gateway.

The link below is for driver verison 8.100.2020.112 (Windows 8 32/64-bit)

The link below is for driver verison 8.100.2020.116 (Windows 8 32/64-bit)

http://global-download.acer.com/GDFi...31503054303608

Instructions:

1. Unzip the file.
2. Double-click on setup icon and install.
3. Reboot.

After installation, this new driver adds Windows 8 gestures that are found on Microsoft Surface and other tablets for the TouchPad. There are other features there, but those are up to you to experiment with.

You can access the TouchPad settings by either clicking the TouchPad icon in the taskbar or by going to Mouse Properties in Control Panel.

Hi, I've just upgraded from Windows XP Home SP2 to Windows Vista Ultimate on my Toshiba Satellite a100. I was wondering where I could download a driver for Synaptics touchpad that works? I tried the generic drivers from Synaptics' website, but they do not install completely (the second component always fails to install). Then I tried the ones from Toshiba's website, but The Vista-compatible ones display an error that says error code "#5B4 @10". Then I tried The Windows XP-compatible drivers, and they work perfectly, except the fact that I cannot configure enhanced features such as virtual scrolling and tap zones.
I click on the icon in the tray, click on The Device Settings tab, and whenever I click on The Settings button nothing happens. Any help?

Hi 2 days ago I bought a acer notebook.The touchpad is working but not the gestures.If i go to the "mouse settings", there are no specific settings for my touchpad.Just the normal mouse settings like pointer speed...I already downloaded the 2 driver which are on the acer support site:TouchPad_Synaptics_18.1.2.1_W81x64_A and TouchPad_ELANTECH_13.6.1.1_W81x64_A.I have installed boot of them sucesfully (there was the green pick). So what to do now?Does anyone have ideas? Also for ur info there are no warning signes for unknown devices in the device manager. Thanks Sorry for my bad english, I'm not a native speaker.

A:Aspire E5-511 Touchpad Driver not working

quaycom,
 
I am sorry that you having problems with the touchpad its gestures. I can assure you that the touchpad is working, however your touchpad is not a ELAN or Synaptics. It looks like we are shipping Precision touchpads with a lot of our newer Windows 8.1 products.
 
What this means is that the gestures you are use to are no longer the same and you have to go to a different location to manage your touchpads settings. For a better idea and explanation of Microsofts Precision touchpad and gestures, please visit http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/touchpad.
