Help me for Synaptics driver!

Question: Help me for Synaptics driver!

I have a Lg Xnote Laptop, and I'm looking for a vertical scrolling driver. I have a synaptics driver now, but under settings it does not allow me to turn on vertical scrolling (nor is it even a visible as an option).

I've tried installing another synaptics driver a few times, but so far I've had no success.

This is my first time to the forum so I appreciate all and any help you can offer me.

Thanks!

I am running Windows 10 on an Acer and recently downloaded and installed the update for the Synaptic touchpad (January 17, 2017).  After rebooting my laptop, I can use the touch pad to move the cursor when logging in, but once the system as loaded,
I cannot move the cursor using the touch pad.  I can left-click and right-click, and shrink and expand on the touch pad, but have no control over the cursor.  I currently have a mouse attached to the computer in order to move the cursor.
When I click on the link for more information about the update, there currently is no information.  Quite frustrating.
Please advise as how to resolve this issue.
Thank you.

Answer:Synaptics Touchpad Driver problem - no appropriate driver to be installed (G580 20150)

hi Naigen,
 
Thanks for Posting!
 
Were you able to check your touchpad settings before the upgrade if you have Synaptics or Elan touchpad?
     As per the Support download site, G580 could have either Synaptics or Elan
          Elan touchpad, as per support site does not have a driver yet for windows 8.1 and still runs with the Windows 8.1 generic driver

Formatting my B570 Laptop I realized that the latest Synaptics driver for my trackpad doesn't contain all of the neccessary settings - Specifically the "slide zone" options are missing (The ones that let's you disable the "slide charm" behavior when you move the finger from the right edge inwards) Does anyone happen to have an older driver lying around for it? The control panel layout has changed - I'm looking for a version that predates their "animated video/image" layout.

The two finger scrolling on my Synaptics touchpad sometimes gets "lost" after coming back from Sleep mode (it does not work).  Rebooting corrects the issue temporarily, but I would like to resolve it permanently.  I believe this is a driver problem.  I have already uninstalled the hardware from Device Manager (without removing the driver), and this has not corrected the issue.  That said, on the Y40 downloads page there is only a Windows 7 driver listed (the laptop came with 8.1 pre-installed).  This driver has a newer release date than the one I have installed. Can I use this driver despite the OS inconsistency?  

Answer:Y40 Synaptics Driver

I'm not sure if the Win 7 drivers can be used for Windows 8.1.You can give it a try. Should not cause much problem even if it's not compatible.In the meantime, let me check with eSupport team for Windows 8.1 drivers.

Answer:Old synaptics driver

Hello!

Difficult question. The closest I can find is 15.1.22.2C: Synaptics TouchPad 15.1.22 - WikiDrivers - Wiki-style resource and guide for device drivers

Is that not close enough? I think that it may be the closest you can find though.

I recently formatted my Xnote laptop. The synaptics driver was reset to its original state. The scroll is too jumpy for me, and I tried to update my driver, by going to Drivers | Synaptics. All the download links seem to be broken. How can I get the newest version of the synaptics touchpad driver?

Answer:Can't download synaptics driver!

Best place to look for drivers is the PC Vendor and not the actual device manufacturer. Sometimes the non PC vendor drivers will not work correctly as many PC vendors do custom impementations of the hardware.

I successfully upgraded yesterday from 8.1 and this morning I was looking at the new "desktop switcher." I was looking for an OSX style touchpad gesture to switch between them. I followed the instructions on the second part of Get Mac-Like Scrolling and Gestures on a Windows Laptop to try and get a custom synaptics driver working. In the course of this, I uninstalled the factory synaptics drivers using "Programs and Features" in the control panel. When trying to install the new custom drivers, I got the error:

"A newer version of the Synaptics Pointing Device Driver is installed.

If you want to install the older version of the Driver, please uninstall the current Synaptics driver by selecting "Synaptics Pointing device" from the "Add/Remove Programs" Control Panel, then run Setup again."

At this point, my touchpad no longer works at all. So I tried to restore the driver to what it was originally.

My first thought was to get windows update to update it for me. I got "Lenovo synaptics touchpad driver" to appear in the list of updates. When trying to update, it threw the error:
"Synaptics driver update for Lenovo Pointing Device - Error 0x80070002"

After rebooting and attempting again with no success, I turned to Lenovo's website. I found the support page for my device:

Hi! So a few hours ago I went to play a game (Blacklight Retribution) and when I pressed any key down and tried to look around I couldn't look around. I've ran into this problem before and easily fixed it. So I went to Control Panel, searched "Mouse" then clicked on Mouse settings. What I saw was this.... Screenshot by Lightshot. Iclicked yes the first time and tried installing the Windows 8 Synaptics Driver Again... It worked. But I still got the same error when going to Mouse Settings. This time I clicked no and received this... Screenshot by Lightshot. So for quite some time after this I was confused on what to do. To relieve my mind I tried playing another game (Planetside 2) and didn't have the problem I had with Blacklight. (This problem is fixed now) But what was annoying me was whenever I brushed just a hair on the trackpad it made me click which made me shoot! Now I go back to the Mouse Setting and browse through it and don't see anything helpful. I decided to look at Device Manager and look to see what was under the Mouse area. I found this... Screenshot by Lightshot. That has nothing to do with the original or Synaptics driver I just installed! So If I can please get some help on how to get my Synaptics Driver back so I can change my mouse settings that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

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.

I just upgraded to Windows 10 and upgraded my synaptics driver to their windows 10 version. Only trouble is the little red light in the corner is always on. The light is only supposed to come on if the trackpad has been disabled but the trackpad is working and the light is on. On top of that the double tap the corner function that turns the trackpad on and off doesn't seem to be an option with this version of the driver.

I managed to find a registry hack to get chiral scrolling to work again but can't seem to find/enable the corner double tap and rid myself of this stupid light.

ETA: Okay weirder still the light is reversed, when I plug in my USB mouse the light goes out and the trackpad is disabled.

I was instructed to restart the pc after uninstalling the old driver and before installing the new one.That's when the problems started.After booting to the Windows login screen,the keyboard became disabled and I was unable to use the pc.

I have a Dell laptop running Windows 64 Home. This was new in November of 2011. After receiving it, I went through the tedious task of updating it via MS Update. I noticed after upgrading, the mouse started behaving very strangely where it would take off and shutter, not respond or be very slow to respond. Contacted Dell and they had me turn off a bunch of stuff on the Dell Touchpad app. This helped but did not fix the issue. I ended up re-installing the OS and made sure the drivers were installed in the correct order using the drivers disk supplied by Dell. Haves since installed the most current driver provided by Dell on their website 15.3.2.1 (April 2011). There continues to be issues with the mouse freezing from time to time. I looked at other threads and removed the Tap to Click feature. There is not much left on and the problem persists.

Dell wants $129 to re-install the OS and drivers, but I really don't think that will make a difference. I think there is some pretty whacky stuff with the Synaptics driver for this mousepad and looks like many other manufacturers.

Has anyone tried contacting Synaptics to see what they have to say about it?

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.

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.

Answer:synaptics pointing device driver?

The pointing device driver...allows notebook users to use that small area on the laptop...in the same way that some use a mouse.

Me, I prefer a mouse. Sooo...if I remove mine from my laptop, there's no impact. If I used that area on the laptop, I would not remove the drivers for it, unless I thought that the drivers were damaged and needed to be replaced.

Chances are, replacement drivers are available for download at the website of the laptop manufacturer.

The pointing device in question is the touchpad and the left and right clicking buttons on your laptop so it's probably better to go to the manufacturer's site and find the right driver.

I own a Toshiba laptop that has served me very well since I bought it right after Windows 8 was released. However, every now and then the touchpad simply stops working. For a long time I've been trying to find a solution, but never cared enough to do major research. The basic features work; one finger for pointing, two finger tap for right click, double tap to drag. However, no gestures work. I can't scroll using the touchpad, I can't swipe from the right for Charms, and I can't swipe from the left for recent apps. Finally I noticed that every time these issues arise, Synaptics Pointing Device Driver, which always sits in my system tray, vanishes. I did a system check and it's nowhere on my computer. There is program data in my hard drive, but nothing else. It's like it no longer exists. However, it's still in my "Programs and Features" where I can uninstall it. Any help would be appreciated.

There's a "virtual scrolling" feature on the trackpad, which no longer works. All the Point Device Properties applet choices seem to be correct... I am not sure why it doesn't work. Anyone got any similar experiences or theories why it wouldn't work?

-H

Answer:Synaptics driver issues on HP G70 laptop?

Here is the website..find your model and try installing the driver for your track pad..

Hope this Helps..

Answer:Synaptics Ultrapad Driver Error

Hi DAVANDEN, Some report that installing the driver twice works, so you might try just running the driver install again and see if that fixes the prolbem You might also try uninstalling the device via Device Manager Control Panel (right click on Start > Device Manager), selecting "Delete the Driver Software for this Device" if offered, and then rebooting before trying to reinstall the driver. Good Luck,   Good Luck.

I attempted to disable the pointing device (touch pad) on the keyboard since I'm using an external mouse and I often make the mouse move with my wrists leaning on the touch pad. The first thing I disabled was the touch screen driver. I re-enabled that OK. But when I un-installed the driver for what was called the Synaptics touch pad, the touch pad remained operational. So I don't know what I un-installed, and I cannot get the system to recognize any new hardware with a hardware scan. Was the Synaptics touch pad driver something extraneous that isn't used? Thanks for your help. Lee

Toshiba released an updated Synaptics touch pad driver yesterday that fixed my scrolling issues:

http://support.toshiba.com/support/v...tentId=4002846

I had 2-finger scroll but not 1-finger scroll. I tried a solution of adding a DWORD to the registry that did not work (and I won't repost here since it didn't work).

The file is 168 MB so...it may take awhile to download. A reboot is required.

Good luck,

Answer:R500 Synaptics Mouse Driver

Hi Ifrrated,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing the issue with Touchpad driver on your ThinkPad R500.
 

Go to control panel & program and feature option and search for Alps driver and Synaptics application and uninstall it and restart the system.
Go to device manager and expand mouse & other pointing device and uninstall it the entire adapter from there and restart the system and check if the issue still persists?

Hope this helps.

I have tried to reinstall the driver but i get an Access Denied error...and its still listed in the Add/Remove programs list. Any attempts says itll remove when i restart, but it doesnt.

I guess this is simple enough. I was looking through the Synaptics site and of course they have a newer driver version. But I didn't just install that right away. I checked the driver update page for the Y500 and also my installed driver and it appears that there is a newer version on my machine than is available on the download page. I was just wondering if anyone had any experience with either the Synaptics site drivers or the download page drivers. In particular I was hoping to find the side scrolling feature where you can scroll using the side of the touchpad instead of being forced to use two fingers. Yes I am that lazy. Otherwise I will just leave well enough alone.

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.

The message: "A previous version of the Synaptics TouchPad Driver is installed. If you continue installation, the driver may not install properly. To avoid this problem, press 'No' to exit setup...

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.

Problem still persists. Need help. I rebooted my computer a couple times along the way, but not after I deleted those folder... Read more

Hi!Since I updated last week my Synaptics ThinkPad UltraNav, my trackpad sometimes hangup.The driver installed was: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-t-series-laptops/thinkpad-t44... I have the PC for more than 1 year and never notice this behavior. It works OK for sometime but other times the trackpad doesn't work at all and the only that is working is the red button.I notived this behavior in 3 differnt systems in my company recently uptaded to this driver: - T440s with Win7_x64              (20ARA.....)- T440s with Win8.1_x64           (20ARA.....)- X1 Carbon with Win8.1_x64   (344.....) Can you pls investigate and release a new version asap.  BR,Tomaz.

Answer:Synaptics ThinkPad UltraNav Driver

Yep, there is definitely a bug with the 18.0.7.103 version of the driver on a T440s. I had to rollback to 18.0.7.57 in order to fix it.The issue (hang up) happens when my laptop wakes up from sleep. I have to restart in order to bring back the trackpad.It's a shame that more than 3 months later this driver is still being offered to T440s users via System Update app and has not being fixed.

I'm using Windows 10 64-bit system, and have used it for over a year with no problems. This problem started kinda weird out. I was watching a movie, and I paused it to go take a smoke. I came back five minutes later and now I couldn't move the cursor from the touchpad, or barely. I tried deleting the synaptics driver and installing the latest version quite a few times. Here's the thing though, the touchpad works without the driver, though sometimes left click, and right clicking doesn't work, however I'm still able to move the cursor. When I install the synaptics touchpad driver left click and right click works, but I am not really able to move the cursor. I can see the touchpad respons to the pressure of my fingers moving across it, but it doesn't move the cursor along the screen or only a small amount.  I have tried different prressures on the touchpad, but with no luck. The problem occurred a few hours ago.

lilmagick

Answer:Synaptics Pointing Device Driver

Sound like the driver may not be properly installed. First check Device Manager to see if it's working OK (Start...Run...type in "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter. See if the device has a red x or yellow ! by it.

You can go to the HP site and download updated drivers for the touchpad if need be.

Then, check in Control Panel for the Mouse or Pointing Device option - then open it to see if the rest of the software is functioning correctly.

Finally, ensure that any switches that may enable this are turned on (there may not be a switch - I'm unsure about HP laptops). But I had a similar problem with a touchpad that took 2 hours to solve - and all it was was that the switch was off!

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.

Yesterday my touchpad was suddenly turned on and I tried to disable it with the settings I always used (configuration screen) However, when i tried to open the control zone for it, it told me it couldn't connect to the driver. I decide to try and reinstall the driver, but it said another driver was already on my computer. I could delete it within the program files on the configuration screen, but there was nothing. So I couldn't deinstall it at all. Its really annoying because I never use my touchpad and my hand keeps brushing over it, so my mouse or text keeps going away.  Please I would like a solution. I can add files to what my screen keeps saying; but it's all in dutch. (Also my smart connect technology keeps flashing a yellow triangle and I have no idea what I have to do against that)

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 have an MSI GT70. Everything works great with Windows 10, except for the touchpad. The latest synaptics driver that windows 10 installs or the one that can be fetched direct from synaptics does not work properly. When it is installed the touchpad misses all the major features, like two finger scroll and pinch to zoom. However, the last available driver supplied by MSI for Windows 8, works absolutely perfectly on windows 10. That is until, two or three reboots later when it updates it to the latest software.

I already tried disabling the installation of drivers through the device manager but the damn thing still updates the synaptics software.

I have searched exhaustively and short of blocking the updates in my firewall (somehow) OR going back to windows 8, I have no idea how to make this madness stop.

Has anyone dealt with this before?
 

Answer:Windows 10 keeps updating my synaptics driver\software

I've dealt with this issue on mt own personal PC before, I deal with a number of people daily where Microsoft's attempt at automated driver updates is an issue.

On release there was a way to disable automatic driver updates but still keep Windows updates functioning normally, I've noticed that since the Anniversary Update this process is no longer quite as simple.

This site was referenced by rezerekted in another thread on a similar topic, perhaps see if there's anything here that may help in gaining a little more control over Windows update? As always, when modifying the OS via third party utilities, use at your own risk.

Hello, last week I bought a brand new Yoga 2 13".It came with Windows 8.1 preinstalled and I immediatly upgraded it to Windows 10 (after the update I did a clean install).Everything work flawlessly... except for a "little" issue: when I cold boot the computer and I get to Windows 10 lock screen, if I try to unlock the screen by touching or clicking the touchpad (Synaptics) 8 out of 10 times I get a windows blue screen (DCP_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION).When the computer reboots, if I'm lucky I can touch the touchpad and login but if not I get another blue screen. Usually at the third reboot everything goes fine. The problem seems to happen more frequently at first boot anyway.After I manage to login everything works perfectly, not a single issue.After a lot of investigations I figured out that if at lock screen I don't touch the touchpad but I unlock by using the keyboard (or an external mouse if connected), things works as expected without any BSOD.I even booted a Linux distro to be sure, and with that I can use the touchpad whenever I want without any troubles.So, given these evidences it must be a problem with Synaptics Touchpad drivers... I'm actually using version 19.0.13.0 that I got through Windows Update, which is the same version for Windows 10 available at Lenovo Support Site for my model.I have used Windows 8.1 for just few minutes, so I'm not sure if it has the same issue (even tried another Win 10 clean install). Has anyone faced the same problem?

Answer:Yoga 2 + Win10 + Synaptics driver = BSOD

A small update 15 days later... Although the issue seems to happen more frequently at lock screen, I experienced few random BSOD even during normal usage (and as a coincidence they happend immediately after touching touchpad). Proably this model is not "really" Windows 10 ready (yet). I don't know if this happens in Windows 8.1 to but I don't want to waste time rolling back to it and hoping it will work... so I ended up installing Ubuntu 15.04: I've been using it for a week now and everything seems to be working flawlessly.

Since installing the Synaptics UltraNav driver version 15.2.14.0 from Lenovo ThinkVantage System Update, the synaptics features of the built-in trackpad are no longer controllable (it is acting in its default tap-to-click state, rather than respecting the preferences set in the UI). In addition, attempting to go to the mouse preferences in Windows brings up this dialogue: Unable to connect to the Synaptics Pointing Device Driver. If you have installed another PS/2 Pointing Device Driver please uninstall the Synaptics driver by clicking the Yes button. You then need to reinstall your pointing device for your external device again. Do you want to uninstall the Synaptics driver now? Which I have not done. I could perhaps attempt letting it uninstall then reinstall, but since the driver was preinstalled, then updated only through ThinkVantage System Update, where can I find the correct installer to run? Windows' Driver Rollback for the trackpad is greyed out a possibility*. I do have a current image backup but clearly this is a rather extreme measure. As an aside, during this batch of updates I have noticed that the Wacom WinTab and Windows Ink interfaces for the pen digitizer have started working: http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/X-Series-Tablet-ThinkPad-Laptops/Pressure-Sensitivity/td-p/175507There is some fringe possibility that this is related but I cannot really see why updating the Synaptics driver would break the Synaptics device; if anything I'd expect...

Answer:Synaptics UltraNav driver cannot identify hardware

Hello mate, It's a known problem with the ultranav driver 15.2.14.0. It doesn't work properly. Waiting for a fix, you just have to install an older version.There is one for 32-bit and one for 64-bit.

Hi, I just downloaded the new driver for the Synaptics Touchpad from the Lenovo website http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS037924 This file creates a folder with the setup programs containing the drivers. At the end of the installation, it asks me if I want to run the installation software for the Synaptics driver. I click "Yes", and nothing happens. I go inside the created folder and click Setup, and nothing. I go to the Synaptics folder, which contains a Septup application, but nothing comes up. Any ideas? Thanks,

Since I received my Inspiron 17 5000 (5749), Win8.1 x64 the Synaptics touchpad works but the driver settings do not. When I go to modify settings from the control panel, clicking on the Synaptics DELL Touchpad link/button, nothing happens. I tried going directly to the executable in c:\program files\synaptics and it will launch but when I click on three of the four buttons in the GUI, nothing happens. When I click on the first one it crashes the application. I have tried installing, uninstalling, and reinstalling the driver to no avail.
I found that I am not alone in this. There is a post on: 

dellwindowsreinstallationguide.com/driver-sets/dell-touchpad-drivers/
which says:

Answer:Synaptics driver not working on Inspiron 17 (5749)

My experience with Dell pad drivers is that they are not real good and not fully functional. I ALWAYS go to the Toshiba site and download the appropriate driver. These drivers are full function, not the crippled Dell drivers.

First off;The TrackPoint is a mystery as to why it's there... I really don't get it so I just let that be.Synaptics installation notes says "The TrackPoint driver does not need to be installed on the UltraNav models." <- So why did the installer not present me that option? Second;The mechanical buttons around the touchpad are halfway there.Uninstalling Synaptics and letting Win take care of it makes the lower buttons work but not the top half (weird as f--k).I've reinstalled Synaptics and cleared the registry severall times with no improvement.To make the upper buttons work I have to disable buttons in TouchPad settings - other settings does no good.Hardware scan says nothing's wrong so I have no idea why Synaptics can't make it work.T430 TouchPad TrackPointI've lived with this issue for some time but what really bugged me was lately when I started playing the game Dawn of Steel by FlareGames: I could not pan or tilt within the so called orb (a map system in DoS) - not with TouchPad nor with an externall mouse. Flaregame support gave nothing. So I started the time consuming work investigating the system. Found out that by killing the process 'synaptics pointing device helper' the movement within the game works - no change in buttons though...Is it just me?

The Synaptics site has released a new version of its driver for those laptops that have a Synaptics touchpad. Version 7.12.7.0 has been released to replace version 7.8.10.0, which was released in January 2004. The driver update for all versions of Windows can be downloaded from here.

Once the file has been downloaded, it will need to be unzipped to a folder. Once it has been unzipped, double-click the "Setup.exe" file to activate the install process. The update will overwrite and install over the current driver version. Reboot afterwards. You can then delete the original unzipped files.

The vertical scroll on my Gateway MT6730 notebook doesn't work, and I don't have the tabs/functionality to change anything on my touchpad when I go to Control Panel --> Mouse. (I don't have device settings, etc. to change.)

I'm trying to find a Synaptics driver that is compatible with my Windows XP OS, but the only one available for this Gateway model is for Vista. Any other potential solutions? Help please!

Thanks!

Within the last year the Synaptics touchpad on my Ideapad Y530, running Windows 7 Pro, became intermittent.  Because I use a mouse, this was not much of an issue but I did try to fix the problem.  I read all the forums, uninstalled and reinstalled the driver, even trying some other drivers from the Synaptics website (this may not have been a good idea).  Nothing worked and I let it rest.  Most recently I took the laptop to a meeting and forgot the mouse.  Negotiating through Windows is not all that easy without a mouse or buttons, but I did manage to get what I wanted and get out gracefully.  So, I decided to revisit the touchpad issue. The first thing I noticed is that the touchpad is not listed in the Device Manager.  There is an Unknown Device but trying to install a driver using the automatic search did nothing.  I uninstalled and reinstalled using the driver from the Lenovo site.  It does not work.  I then saw that in the C:\Drivers\ folder, Windows explorer shows TWO Synaptics Pointing Device Driver folders.  I uninstalled the driver and one folder went away but the other is still there.  I tried to delete this folder but Windows Explorer says it Could not find this item.  If I try using the CMD prompt, a dir shows the directory but if I try to CD Synaptics Pointing Device Driver it says PATH NOT FOUND.  In Windows Explorer I can double click on the folder and it shows three entries (the ones ins...

Hi
 
Welcome To Lenovo Community
 
We are really sorry to hear about the issue you are facing,

 After Powering on press F2 to boot into the BIOS, when you're in Bios, press F9 to reset the settings to factory and press F10 to save and exit BIOS.
 
After booting back to the OS, uninstall the current touchpad driver, press Fn+F6 to disable/enable the Touchpad, you will see an On screen Display icon if the Touchpad is disabled or enabled
 
Restart the system. Try installing the following drivers
 
Ideapad Y530 series touchpad driver Win7 32 Bit

If this doesn't work, you will need to contact Lenovo for service. Support phone list here.

I'm using Windows 10 64-bit system, and have used it for over a year with no problems. This problem started kinda weird out. I was watching a movie, and I paused it to go take a smoke. I came back five minutes later and now I couldn't move the cursor from the touchpad, or barely. I tried deleting the synaptics driver and installing the latest version quite a few times. Here's the thing though, the touchpad works without the driver, though sometimes left click, and right clicking doesn't work, however I'm still able to move the cursor. When I install the synaptics touchpad driver left click and right click works, but I am not really able to move the cursor. I can see the touchpad respons to the pressure of my fingers moving across it, but it doesn't move the cursor along the screen or only a small amount.  I have tried different prressures on the touchpad, but with no luck. The problem occurred a few hours ago. [Solution] I recently updated my computer with the anniversary update from windows have suggest it bricked something.I simply updated to newest BIOS version and the problem solved itself

Hi there, new user here.

My Synaptics Pointing Device Driver is malfunctioning and I need to uninstall it. However, when I try to do so I get an error message telling me I must be an administrator to do so and to "please log off and log back on as administrator". I am already the administrator of my user account, but after some googling I found out I could enable a "true" administrator account of Windows 8.1 by doing
Code:
net user administrator /active:yes


and logging on to the now unlocked "true" administrator account.
After doing this I still get the same error. I've tried running control.exe as administrator but no luck there either. I've tried reinstalling the driver as well, which completes without errors, but nothing changes. Any help here?

I'm puzzled as to how it's even possible to create a third party application that defies the highest administrative level of windows 8.1. It seems like malware pushers should take some pointers from synaptics...

Answer:Uninstalling Synaptics Pointing Device Driver

That's not normal. I installed and then uninstalled the Synaptics driver on my wife's Acer Windows 8.1 laptop. It turned out it has an ELANTECH touchpad, not Synaptics. What ever is going on may be why its malfunctioning.

The touchpad on my HP 840 G1 is going crazy! I upgraded from Win 8.1. and installed all the appropriate drivers from the HP page, but the touchpad enhancements keeps failing randomly, with material (supposedly) copied to the clipboard being replaced by the failure message and the entire Mouse options panel being inaccessible because "Control Panel extension is incompatible with Driver". At times, the whole thing is barely functional and it's quite a nuisance because I use this machine for work. What do I do?

Hi everybody,

I am running a Sony VGN-FZ11E Laptop, installed Windows 7 32bit, found all the drivers needed except for the one for my touch pad. I have tried Synaptics drivers but after installation my keyboard crashes an wouldn't allow any typing. Could anyone help me please.

Thank you

Answer:Synaptics driver issues Sony VGN-FZ11E

are you sure the model number ends in E?
I can't seem to find any reference to it on sony's site.
They only allow for
L,M,S,Z

I can find reviews for the E model just nothing on sony's site about it.
Anyhow see what the detect my model thing turns up on you.
Sony eSupport - dash™ Personal Internet Viewer - Select Your Model

Anyhow that's where I would be looking for the updated driver for that one.
Sounds like the generic synaptics one isn't working with that laptop.

My HP 450 G1 Laptop touchpad doesn't work after upgrading to Windows 10 Creator 4/2017.

I googled and attempted solutions with many times of uninstall/reinstall driver but it still doesn't work.
Here is images about Mouse Setting and Device Manager in my laptop:




There's no Synaptics tab in mouse settings nor Enable option for Synaptics PS/2 Port Touchpad in Device Manager.

I tried drivers from both HP site or Synaptics site but it cannot help. Moreover, my touchpad doesn't work in Bios mode.

I'm sure that my touchpad hardware still works well. It backed to work one time when I tried to fix this problem 2 weeks ago (don't remember how I fixed in this time). However it doesn't work in next reboot PC till now.
Now I just can use USB mouse only.

Please help me in this case, thanks.

Hi,

I installed the latest version of synaptics drivers for my Toshiba laptop, however, I am unable to vertically scroll using my touchpad, as I used to with the older version of the driver that suddenly stopped working. I installed the new version, rebooted, but when I clicked Control panel > Mouse Properties > Device Settings, under "Devices" I see Standard Pointing Device" Ps/2. I click "Settings", only to find two items Overview and Buttons. Nothing about the virtual scrolling. Any ideas?

TIA.

Hello,  After upgrading to Windows 10, a new version of the Synaptics Touchpad driver for my X220T was automatically installed. However, I soon found that 2-finger scrolling is extraordinarily slow, even after manipulating some of the Synaptics control panel settings such as "scroll speed", and that "inertia" pointing has been turned on by default, which is very annoying.  I have been able to hide the update for now (using the wushowhide.diagcab tool) even though hiding updates in Windows 10 is far more convoluted than in Windows 8.1 and have installed the Windows 8.1 driver from Lenovo Downloads instead.  My question is, when will a driver from Lenovo or with appropriate fixes from Synaptics be released? William

Forgive me for cross-posting, but quite a while ago I asked this on the ThinkVantage Technologies board here and have only gotten "Me Too" adds to the thread. I'm hoping ths board and its moderators may be more responsive. I have the latest Synaptics driver V.16.2.5.0 dated 7/5/2012, installed via System Update on a T520 running Win 7 Pro 64 bit. I prefer to disable the TouchPad and only use the TrackPoint. No matter where I disble the TouchPad, either in the context menu of the notification icon or in the Control Panel Applet, the TouchPad  is always re-enabled on a clean start or re-start. I have manually uninstalled the driver and re-installed the driver to no avail. Since others are having this problem, I was wondering if a fix is in the works.

Answer:Synaptics TrackPoint Driver Does not remember settings.

Yeah I'm having that too with the same driver but on T420s with Win7 64bit Pro also.Fully update etc.

Hi, I'm own an Aspire V3-572G-77S8 with windows 8.1 running on it. I have installed all of the drivers from the acer support web. Everything is working great but the touchpad. It seems impossible to install correctly any driver wether Synaptics or Elantech. When I install it (synaptics driver version 18.1.2.1). verything seems to be fine, but the mouse doesn't use the new driver, it's like I haven't installed anything and it uses the generic one by windows. I've tried disbling the sign driver feature on windows8.1, and forcing to use the synaptics driver on the device manager but when I do that the pointer dissappears, and the mouse doesn't work propperly. Also I've downloaded previous version of the drivers from acer and the generic from the synaptics driver. Nothing works. Please, what can I do? I'd love to have the drivers workig to set up my mouse preferences and enabling the 3 and 4 fingers gestures (on windows 7 in this computer worked great!) Greetings from Spain

Answer:Aspire V3-572G Synaptics Driver Windows 8.1

It sounds like this system shipped with Windows 8.1. A lot of our newer systems come with the Microsoft Precision touchpad.
