I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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.

The Yoga is my 1st Windows machine in years. Coming from various MacBook(s) Pro(s) I dearly miss the capabilities and configurability of Apple's multitouch touchpad. While responsibility of the Synaptics device is fairly decent I haven't found an experience that is anything close to the one perceived on the MacBook touchpad. Latter in combination with BetterTouchTool is my weapon of choice when it comes to productivity. It offers almost unlimited configurability, that is, I can design/configure any gesture I desire and link it to a keystroke for instance. It's just perfect since I am not into Apple's predefined gesture settings at all. Now I have spent endless hours in getting this back on my new Yoga. At least I am now able to use 3 finger swipes for back/forward navigation. However, this is just a fraction of what I need/want. That's why I am looking for a way to either be able to modify the driver myself (open source, Lenovo/Synaptics?) or get access to an API I can build on. Obviously I'd prefer latter option. Synaptics is touting their Gesture Suite but I cannot find a download somewhere. I'm afraid it's OEM only. And if that's the config app that comes with the standard Synaptics driver it's just pathetic. So does anyone have a clue on how we can significantly improve the performance of this otherwise very nice laptop? Thanks in advance,stfn

Answer:Yoga 13: any chance for open source Synaptics touchpad driver or touchpad API?

hi stfn-64,my personal opinion on this case, i don't think either lenovo or synaptics will share the main source codes with you or anyone else.at this point, i suggest you to try to update drivers synaptics. it may solve your issue.hope this helps.

Dear all,
Since yesterday, the built-in TouchPad mouse does not react anymore. In properties it says "the device is working properly", but it doesn't...
I am now using an external mouse.
How can I restore the TouchPad mouse? When I open the control panel, I get the possibility to uninstall the Synaptics driver. Should I?
Thanks for your help!

In Windows 8 the option is called SmartSense. Disabling this worked for me.

Press Win+W to bring up Settings Search
Type "synaptic" 
Double Click "SmartSense"
Slide the Slider all the way to "Off"
Click "Close" and then "OK"

This will Disable the Anti-Palm detection which prevents simultaneous Keyboard and Mouse use. I recommend you re-enable this feature when you're not gaming as otherwise you risk problems while typing.

Hi all,

I have a Satellite A100-062 which is about 10 months old. The other day while I was using the laptop the touchpad stopped responding to anything I do on it including the mouse buttons. I did a system restore and then used the toshiba recovery disk but nothing fixed the problem. I had then stopped using it for a couple of days as I was going to take it back to the shop but beforehand I thought I would try something. Before I did tried out something I booted it up to ensure the mouse was still not working. However it was and I haven't done anything else to fix it.

I was wondering if anyone else had this problem and if you have how many times it has happened and whether or not it is fixable.

Thanks for any help in this matter.

Answer:Satellite A100 - Synaptics Pointing Device unresponsive

Hello

If the touchpad does not respond after clean OS installation (recovery DVD) there must be some hardware problem. I recommend you to contact authorized service provider in your country. After 10 months the warranty must still be valid. Let them check the touchpad and if there is some hardware problem it will be exchanged for free.

Question: Synaptics TouchPad

Hello,

Recently my Synaptics TouchPad suddenly stopped working on my Compaq M2000 laptop; I fixed the problem by re-installing the Synaptics driver. When I restarted the computer, the TouchPad was working fine, but the keyboard was not working at all, so now I cannot type in my password to log onto the computer.

Is there any way to solve this problem without having to format the computer?
 

Answer:Synaptics TouchPad

dont format. use a different comp, download (savepe) its a recovery program. you can run chkdsk from there. it will load its own drivers. savepe is a live xp cd.

I would like to mention that upgrading to Windows 10 on 2 HP laptops. On the one that is older which had the synaptics driver 15.3.29.0 the tapping worked fine, on the newer unit the driver was current with version 19. something. With attempting to adjust the synaptics using the up to date driver there was real no satisfaction. I deleted it and installed the 15.3.29.0 driver and it works great..

Question: Synaptics TouchPad

I have a Synaptics TouchPad v11.0.7 on my HP Pavilion dv6000. I prefer a higher sensitivity on the pad, so I change the pointer options. However, after I restart my computer, the preferences reset to default. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver but the same thing continues. This is getting very irritating. I have no other mouse drivers on my computer and I am at a loss for a solution. I would much appretiate any help.

So I am at the end of my rope with my laptop's touchpad. I can not disable the tap-to-click option, and because of this I am CONSTANTLY clicking on things every time I type or do anything.

Also, the scroll does not work.

I have searched through all of the mouse options and there is not one single option anywhere for tapping or scrolling.

I have updated the driver. I have uninstalled the driver and tried installing an older version of the driver. I can't find anything that will give me these options, no matter which drivers I install.

I am using Windows XP, on a Dell Inspiron 6000. According to the hardware tab, I am using a Synaptics PS/2 Pointing Device.

Please, please, PLEASE help! Please!

Question: Synaptics Touchpad

Hi. I'm having a problem with my HP Pavilion dv6000's touchpad. Recently (i.e. Today) it has been giving me an error and shutting down a program called "Synaptics Touchpad Enhancements", which has the adverse effects of slowing down the touchpad's sensitivity, and making the scroll bar on the side of the pad useless. Restarting solves this problem, but it occurs again after perhaps thirty minutes or so. I've already tried redownloading the drivers for it, but it hasn't solved the problem. In addition, upon selecting the mouse via the Control Panel, I'm confronted with this error.This problem has me stumped. Can anyone shed some light on what I could do to solve this?

Answer:Synaptics Touchpad

Hi,The issue you have mentioned and the error you attached clearly state that there is an issue with the Synaptics Touchpad drivers on the system. To resolve the issue, I suggest you uninstall the Synaptics Touchpad drivers completely from the system through Control Panel, Add/Remote programs (Win XP) or Programs and Features (Win Vista). After complete uninstallation, please restart the system. Download the latest drivers from the following weblink and then install the software. This will definitely resolve the issue.http://www.synaptics.com/support/driversHope this information helps.Regards,Vidya

Answer:Synaptics Touchpad not working

Hi, You could try the following. Hold down the Windows key and press R Into the Run window, type devmgmt.msc and hit enter. In Device Manager, expand Mice and other pointing devices.  Right click the Synaptics device and select Uninstall - you should also get a prompt to remove the current driver, tick the box to allow this and then proceed with the uninstall. When this has completed, shutdown the notebook and then disconnect any peripherals ( ie usb mouse etc ). Unplug the AC Adapter and then remove the battery.  Hold down the Power button for 30 seconds.  Re-insert the battery and plug in the AC Adapter. Tap away at the esc key as you start the notebook to launch the Start-up Menu and then select f10 to enter the bios menu.  Press f9 to load the defaults ( this is sometimes f5, but the menu at the bottom will show the correct key ), use the arrow keys to select 'Yes' and hit enter.  Press f10 to save the setting and again use the arrow keys to select 'Yes' and hit enter. Let windows fully load and see if you have basic touchpad functionality - if you do, download and install the Synaptics driver below. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp58501-59000/sp58572.exe When this installation has completed, restart the notebook again. Regards, DP-K

Hello,

I just got an Acer Windows 8 PC, and none of the touchpad gestures seem to be working. I have tried using several recommended third-party tools and all of them said that I didn't have the correct drivers, even after I installed all of them.

I have gone to mouse --> Synaptics --> Settings, and the only options there are to enable/disable the buttons.

Is there any way to enable multi-touch?

Thanks,
Sora

Answer:Synaptics Touchpad Settings

Did you go to the Acer site and download the latest drivers for the touchpad? I have an Acer that came with Windows 7, upgraded it to 8 and downloaded the touchpad drivers from the Acer site. I now have the touchpad gestures. And it really really makes a huge difference!

They even scheduled an appointment for me to bring my laptop to a Microsoft store at the mall to be fixed, which I now can cancel thanks to this site.   I followed the instructions that were posted here, holding the power button down for 10 seconds powering down my laptop, then I removed the battery and power cord, waited about a minute, then put the battery and cord back in, pressed the power button  turning my laptop back on and  the TOUCHPAD NOW WORKS!!!  Microsoft technicians reinstalled Windows 10 three times, checking  everything there was to check, installing and uninstalling the Synaptics touchpad driver and nothing worked so they would keep escalating the case, no one at Microsoft knew of this simple and easy fix.   Just try it and you'll see..... it worked for me, I hope it will work for you!  Thank you to the person who posted these instructions!

Answer:Synaptics Touchpad not working at all

it maybe one of the functions keys - on Toshiba and HP I know the function Key F9 or F11 with FN key
so you hold the FN key down (on toshiba a drop down menu appears at the top of the screen ) and then press f9 or f11 or any key that has a symbol that may look correct
that will toggle between enable and disable the touch pad

I previously included this problem in another thread but I thought I'd sorted it. I can't get on with Touchpads so I wanted to disable it. Couldn't do it in Device Mnr (disable is greyed out) and deleting the driver just leads to it re-installing at every start-up. I found I can disable it under Control Panel - Mouse - Other pointing Devices. A few days later it's not only back (although still shows as disabled) and every time I restart I get a little box marked Synaptics asking to Run the exe file!
I just can't get rid of it. It can be diabled via fn+F5 - but I always forget. Had the same problem on my Acer so I lifted the keyboard and pulled the ribbon cable out. But I can't do that on the Samsung because the keyboard is under the casing top and the keys poke through holes. I don't fancy splitting the case.
Any ideas?

Answer:Synaptics Touchpad Returns - again!

Do you have CCleaner?
if so look in Tools - Start up - there may be a program there you can disable to stop the pad from working. (SunthTP.exe or something similar)

I am not sure why this happens, it may be a bad driver installation from what I have been reading online this happens a lot after people install new updates. The quick "solve it now" solution would be to navigate to the synaptics folder on your computer (C:\Program Files\Synaptics\SynTP) find SynTPEnh.exe run this program and you should have your scroll function and everything back. If it keeps ending the program on you after you have tried this maybe try finding an older version of the driver to instal, or put a shortcut link to the fore mentioned program on your desktop for easy access.

Does anybody have a tip where I can find free Synaptics Touchpad Drive downloads. I have 7.0 and overnight it froze on me.

I have only recently bought my laptop and it came with Vista which I have been hating and now this latest problem occured.

Thanks.

Answer:Synaptics Touchpad drive

Hi Zsofia,

Uninstall the driver and then go to windows update. It will detect your touchpad and install the correct driver software. You should be able to use your touchpad even without the synaptics driver as Vista has native drivers for your touchpad.

Good Luck!

I believe the option is only available for the newer Thinkpads with the new touchpad. Even if it might be technically possible it seems like Synaptics didn't include that option in the software for the older touchpads. -gan

After upgrading to Windows 10 from Windows 7 the Synaptics PS/2 touchpad no longer has scolling ability. I have tried vertical and horizontal, as well as 1 and 2 finger. The touch pad is enabled and scolling is enabled. The current driver is 19.0.12.98 which was updated by windows update. I have downloaded and installed 19.0.19.1 from the Synaptics website and it didn't work. I have tried the Windows 8 driver from Synaptics as well and had no luck (failed to install even in compatibility mode). The original Compaq Windows 7 driver wouldn't work either. Unable to find any solution by searching or reading the forums. Any help is appreciated.

My HP notebook was Windows 10 and was downgraded to Windows 7.   My touchpad is too touchy and I continuously find that it moves around the screen while i am typing.  I thought that I would just disable it.  It shows up on the hardware as a mouse PS2 and it does not have a disable button.  I just deleted the install file but it constantly re-loads on a re-boot.  I love my HP notebook, but the touchpad is driving me crazy, please help me.  

Answer:i have a synaptics touchpad under Windows 7.

My computer is a Toshiba Satellite L305 and has a Synaptics TouchPad. I use Windows Vista.

For a few weeks I had been getting messages saying "Synaptics TouchPad has stopped working, click here to solve the problem" or something similar. I didn't think anything of it because the mouse was working fine, so I just hit the "X". I'm not even sure that is a part of the problem even because it has stopped coming up.

Lately the mouse will work fine and after being on the computer for about an hour or so, the mouse will slowly stop working. I can still click and when I tap the touchpad, that will still click. I just won't be able to move the mouse. Restarting the computer does not fix it. Usually I just plug in a mouse and use it for 20-30 minutes and by then the mouse is working fine again.

Any suggestions?

my synaptics touchpad has a mind of its own
Hello this is my first posting to your Windows seven forum. I am writing to you today because over the past two to three weeks my Synaptics touchpad mouse has had a mind of its own. It has been clicking and opening files without me pressing the mouse buttons or tapping the touchpad, scrolling by itself, highlighting and moving the files on my desktop and in my computer, etc. I have tried everything from physically cleaning the Touchpad thoroughly, updating the Synaptics driver time and time again only to find no resolution to this issue, I have also uninstalled and reinstalled previous versions of the synaptics drivers that worked before with my laptop only to be confronted with this same problem. I have ran scans on both Uni-blue registry booster and PC Tools Spyware Doctor (which I use as my registry and anti-virus/spyware programs) and of which I update on a daily/weekly basis and yet I have found no traces of what may be causing my mouse to act so crazy. I have also ran the system scan in the command prompt which was suggested earlier in this thread only to find out that everything was running properly and at 100% integrity.

Hi all,

I tried to install a wireless mouse for my laptop, which I could't get to work(!). No problem, except that when I returned to using my normal Synaptics Touchpad it had lost it's Virtual Scrolling capability. Also, its touch-sensitive areas no longer work.

Furthermore, Synaptics Touchpad seems to have (semi-)disappeared from my computer ("semi" in the sense that the touchpad itself still performs basic functions like moving and highlighting.)

Also, I can no longer find Synaptics in my tray.

I can't find the Touchpad anywhere in Control Panel to get at the settings.

IIRC, there used to be a Synaptics properties window somewhere that allowed you adjust all this stuff - again, I can't seem to find this anywhere.

(My computer: Dell Inspiron 5100, Windows XP, no other problems with computer.)

Many thanks for any help you can offer.

Hello, this is a strange problem I am having...
I used to have xp on my amilo laptop, with synaptics driver 7.10.10, May 2004 driver. The nice thing about this was that the touchpad was disabled when an external mouse was plugged in, just by ticking the proper box in the driver setting panel (disable touchpad when external ... ). Easy and working fine: also, the touchpad was reenabled automatically removing the external mouse.
Now I switched to win7, and I lost this capability. Fujitsu site does not have an updated driver, and recommends to use the manufacturer drivers. Fine, but...
1) the latest version for Win 7/Vista 32 bit is 14.0.3.C, it works OK but there is no trace of that box (disable touchpad when external...): you can only disable the touchpad, and reenable manually.
2) in desperation, I took the old driver used in xp, run the setup in compatibility mode, and it installed (barring the usual complaints about incompatibility); again, it works fine, but no trace of that capability.

Is something in win7 preventing this feature from working? Or is some mix of amilo hardware and win7 causing the problem?
Thanks for any suggestion

 My Ideapad Z580 is a month out of warranty and the Synaptics touchpad keys suddenly stopped working todayabout 24 hours after I applied a raft of Windows 8.1 updates. I subsequently did a system restore back to just after the updates were applied and this has given me back use of the left and right touchpad buttons but I also seem to have lost the configuring app, the icon for which used to be in with a load of other hidden icons in the system tray. How can I retrieve it please because, although the touchpad now works again, it is pretty well unusable and I'm having to rely on my trusty old wire less mouse?

Answer:Cannot configure Synaptics touchpad

Forget what I asked in my earlier post. It seems that, if I uninstall the touchpad, then, after a reboot, it is automatically reinstalled but the Synaptics Pointing Device icon subsequently take a long time to reappear in the system tray, allowing me to change settings again. I can't say the touchpad is a joy to use (it never has been) but it is usable even if it does seem to be playing silly buggers now and again, ie the the cursor occasionally picks up fields it passes over and drags them round the screen.

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.

Also, after i restart the computer, SynTPEnh.exe stays on for a while and the cycle i described previously continues.

Hi, I originally posted this problem on Tech Help but it was perhaps a bit verbose.
I have an HP Stream 11 which I recently updated to win 10.
Since then the touchpad does not work at all.
Following HP advise I removed the existing version of the software and tried to install the recommended version which fixes this issue.
The software downloads and says it has successfully installed.
Unfortunately it has not. The created synaptics folder only has two files in it. On my HP 15 the synaptic folder is full of files.
I've tried installing back versions, versions for other make laptops all to no avail.
I've spoken to HP at length but they seem unable to offer a solution.
Most of HP's suggestions involve 'Uninstall the software' I can't its not there.
'Go back to a restore point' I can't there are no restore points it being a new win 10 installation.
I'm really looking for pointers as to what to try next, I even deleted all the synaptics registry entries, thinking there may be a value in there which is prohibiting installation.
Any suggestions welcome, Thanks Al

I've searched HP and Synaptics websites for assistance with no success. Maybe someone here can assist. Here are the issues I'm experiencing on a continual basis.

*Touchpad "accuracy" seems really poor
-missed taps on pad and left click button
-cursor jumps about screen
-cursor doesnt always move with finger swipe
-sometimes right click menu pops up when swiping with finger, absolutely not hitting right click button

*Cursor scroll image freezes on screen (most annoying thing)
-When two finger scrolling, the cursor image will freeze a phantom image onto the screen. It only happens on scrolling function with the scrolling cursor image. When you hover over the frozen image it shows the circular busy cursor image. Sometimes there will be 3 or more frozen images on screen which overlay almost any program you open. I can clear them by ending the SynTPEnh.exe process in task manager which seems to start itself back up immediately. I really like the two finger scrolling and would hate to have to resort to other methods.
*Adding Edit- When images freeze on screen I still have functionality of the cursor. It's just that I have these cursor scroll ... Read more

 - I've got a new HP Spectre x360 - 13-4111tu - When I'm typing the mouse pointer can not be moved - This appears to be a deliberate thing. There is a slider in Mouse & Touchpad Settings | Additional Mouse Options | ClickPad Settings | SmartSense that appears (from the little video in the settings) to disable the disabling. - I've tried that, but it doesn't appear to make any difference - Interestingly, the setting turns itself back on after a restart - I've been through three chat sessions with HP support, they've tried reinstalling the driver, apdating the driver, and in one anoying session, disabling the touchpad entirely and restarting - I'm wondering if there is another windows based setting for this fuction somewhere I'm missing, or if this is just broken

Recently my laptop was repaired because the display was not functioning correctly. When I got my laptop back I reinstalled windows completely. Using HP Support Assistant I updated all my drivers. Everything worked fine except my touchpad is not working anymore. I reinstalled the Synaptics driver(version 19.0.19.1) multiple times but my touchpad still not works. Besides that the touchpad is not listed in Windows device manager. I don't know what to do to solve this problem. Hope someone can help me! Kind regards svdsande

I just upgraded to Windows 10 and have discovered a problem that I can't seem to fix. When I Right-click on my Touchpad, nothing happens. This was very useful when I need to fix a word spelling & get options for the misspelled word.

I have an HP Pavilion using Synaptics Touchpad.

Any ideas ???

Answer:Right Click does't work on Touchpad (Synaptics)

Hi, do you mean the touch pad button (I presume you have one) or the double tap right click option?
And can you confirm the obvious, that rt click with a mouse works?

Three weeks or so ago I posted here, asking for help on how to disable my touch pad on a Lenovo laptop. I disabled all the gestures, unchecked the 'lock on' feature, etc. and for a short while thought the issue was resolved. It is not. Here is my original thread:
http://www.sevenforums.com/search.php?searchid=6664971
It was closed but I am still having problems. When I drag the pointer across objects, it activates them, opens pages, that sort of thing. If I accidentally leave the pointer on the 'previous page' button, it automatically does goes back. It is driving me crazy. I've disabled everything (except disabling the touch pad entirely) and it's still plaguing me.

Short of a virus (I've scanned a few times with AVG and MalwareBytes and found nothing), the only thing I can think is perhaps in disabling the various features, I accidentally hit upon a sequence or combination that keeps somehow didn't disable those features I don't want.

Any suggestions?

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 am trying to find out if there is a way to disable highlighting text with the Synaptics touchpad. I have (enable tapping) checked. I want to be able to use tapping but not to drag & highlight text. I would like to highlight text with holding down the left button which I am able to do but sometimes text is highlighted when I don't want it to. Am I making sense?
Thanks for any help

Answer:Help with Synaptics Touchpad highlighting text

I don't think you can have one without the other. I think you would have to disable tapping to stop that from accidentally happening. That or use a firmer touch.

Dear Support Team, For a couple of days, the mouse on my HP EliteBook behaves erratically. It starts right away at the start of Windows when the log-in screen with the different profiles appears. I can neither click on any profile nor on the shut-down button. However, I can select a profile via the arrow-keys and the Enter button of my keyboard. Once Windows has loaded, the mouse acts normally. However, after a couple of minutes (or sometimes hours), the mouse starts to behave erratically again. Either the left-click is activated repeatedly, also turning the pointer into scroll mode, or neither left-click nor right-click are reacting at all. Funnily, I discovered how to "unfreeze" the mouse in the latter case: I simply need to start the Windows Task Manager via Ctrl+Alt+Del and the arrow-keys. Once the Task Manager is open, the mouse works normally again. This does not apply to the former phenomenon, though, when the left-click is activated repeatedly. I have consulted many forum entries and tried many remedies. My BIOS is up to date and I also updated the mouse driver via the Device Manager. This last attempt even made things worse. Since Windows installed the driver Synaptics TouchPad V7.0 (Synaptics Pointing Device - v15.0.24 03Jun10), I cannot use the "Tap and Drag" function by holding the second click on the touchpad any more, even though the option is activated in the aforementioned TouchPad V7.0 settings. This applies to all times, even when the mou... Read more

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
