Synaptics driver issue

Question: Synaptics driver issue

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.

Hi, I have the Lenovo Yoga 720 15 IKB 80X7 (4K display), since many days ago, I'm currently posting this on 7-20-2017, the fingerprint of my laptop stopped working so now In the windows hello sign in menu it shows a message in which it says "Windows Hello is not available on this device", the fingerprint option doesn't appear there anymore.When I check the issue on the "update device drivers menu" an exclamation mark appears next to the synaptics drivers WBDI, in the section of biometric devices. When I click on it to see more information it appears this message: "This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31){Operation Failed}The requested operation was unsuccessful." I show you in the picture the information I get in the driver tab. I do not have the option to roll back the driver so I can't make it work again. I checked and it is the last driver available so far but it doesn't work. By the way I have the same exclamation mark and the same message of error in the driver "system interface foundation driver", code 31..., is there any link with it?I've already re installed windows twice through the option "reset this pc" from the configuration menu, one without deleting my files and the other removing all, but I still had the same issue with the fingerprint reader since the beginning of the new start, it didn't work. Does anybody have the same issue and a solution?Thanks in advance

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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

Answer:Synaptics touchpad driver keeps breaking

Quote:
because frequently the mouse cursor will jump around the screen when typing and mess up what I am doing


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.

Hi folks,

I just upgraded my father-in-law's HP G70 laptop to Win7 Home Premium 64-bit. It is relatively new but had Vista on it. It was an "upgrade" and it appears to have preserved everything pretty well. A large number of updates have ben applied successfully via Windows Update. But -

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?

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.

I just bought a HP Pavillion dv6000. I am trying to enable the scroll on the touch pad. When I go to the control panel to mouse a message come up stating: UNABLE TO CONNECT TO THE SYNAPTICS POINTING DEVICE DRIVER. Can someone tell what I need to do to connect.

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!

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.

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.

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.

   This is now the third forum I have posted to regarding this issue.I've been to Sevenforums and to the HP forums.I don't know how/when this happened (because I rarely restart my pc) but,I recently had to restart after some updates and after restarts now it seems that I have to physically load the Synaptics touchpad driver in order for things like (in particular) two finger scrolling) to work.
  
    I uninstalled the Synaptics driver (because Synaptics site has a newer version.HP,so far,isn't supporting the new one). 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've done a system restore and all is back to normal.But,I'm still left with the original problem (having to physically load the Synaptics software because it's not loading itself).

Answer:Synaptics Touchpad Driver Not Loading

Honestly...if you have an HP system...you should get your drivers for basic functions from the HP website.  Theoretically, all drivers for a specific item SHOULD be useable...but "should" is a word that often does not apply to OEM systems, IMO.

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.

Hey
 
First off i apologize for me not being very computer savvy
 
I have bought a Lenovo Z50-70. Before that i had a (i believe - i can't really find out the exact model, sadly) G510. They both use Synaptics touchpads i understand.
 
Now, i liked the feel of the old touchpad better than what i feels like on the new one. So i was wondering if i can somehow install the driver from the old G510 on the Z50-70 to get the same feel. The Z50 driver makes the finger to screen movement non-linear where the G510 was linear which i prefer
 
Thanks in advance

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 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?

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.

Hey guys,

I bought a Satellite P50 the other day and I noticed something annoying pretty fast.

Whenever I am using the keyboard the touchpad stops working. Now I understand it probably does this so that people don't accidentally touch the pad while typing, but as this makes playing video games (which use wasd to move) quite difficult, I really want to disable this feature.

I've tried updating to latest drivers and going to Mouse Properties and Device settings and looking in the properties but I can't seem to find what I need to disable.

I've tried searching on the web but doing the above is all I really got.

Can someone point me in the right direction please?

Thanks in advance

Answer:Satellite P50 - Annoying Synaptics Mousepad issue

>Whenever I am using the keyboard the touchpad stops working

You mean while typing?

There is a option called ?Hide pointer while typing?
In my case I could enable and disable this option in:
Control panel -> mouse -> pointer options -> ?Hide pointer while typing?

There is also another option called ?Disable internal pointing device (touchpad) when external USB pointing device (USB mouse) is attached?

If this option is checked, the touchpad would not work if you would use the USB mouse.
This can be found in:
Control panel -> mouse -> device settings

This started 4 weeks ago (only had the laptop 7weeks) and problem is becoming progressively worse; it starts quicker and only stops when I reboot (which takes a while with Vista!)

Had no reply and really at wits end. Its soooooooooo frustrating!

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.

I'm attempting to solve the issue of the touchpad delay after typing.  This is a well known issue, easily fixable in the Synaptics control panel by turning off Palm Check.  However, my Flex 3 1480 came with the Alps control panel, which doesn't offer ANY options for turning off touchpad delay.  How do I switch over to the Synaptics driver, instead of the Alps driver, so that I can use the full selection of options available to Synaptics users? NOTE:  I've seen various solutions suggested on the forums, none of which have worked.  Some of those include turning touchpad to "no delay" in the mouse settings, deleting a file called FMAPP.exe, downloading the latest audio drivers, among other things.  None of these solutions worked for me.  That's why I want to change to Synaptics, so that at least I can go into the Synaptics settings and turn off Palm Check to solve the issue.  Any ideas?

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.

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.

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

I need a new driver as well.  Because of the 'resizing mouse pointer' problem when pressing the middle trackpad button on my X1 Carbon 3.  (sucks to have to deal with this on a new ($$$) machine) here's some links...   BTW I had this problem on both win 8.1 and win 10.  https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-W-Series-Laptops/Cursor-becomes-very-small-on-W550S-with-high-... And... https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-Carbon-Mouse-Pointer-Size-Changes-Constant...

The touchpad of my Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro is not working with Windows 8.1 or the newly installed Windows 10. It is neither recognised in the Device Manager, nor the Synaptics TouchPad Driver is listed among the installed programs in the Control Panel. Moreover, when I try to install the latest verion of this driver obtained from the Lenovo website, I am warned that "A previous version of the Synaptics TouchPad Driver is installed.", and that I should remove it first before continuing. If I try to install this version anyway, the installation is apparently successful, but I still cannot use the touchpad (nor the driver seems to be installed anywhere). What should I do to solve this annoying issue? Many thanks for your attention.

Answer:Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro and Synaptics TouchPad Driver

 Are there files in the "C:\Program Files\Synaptics\SynTP" folder? i had an issue where I couldn't uninstall the synaptics driver via settings and had to do it manually from an administrator command line. I used the following command: rundll32.exe "C:\Program Files\Synaptics\SynTP\SynISDLL.dll",standAloneUninstall Once you have it uninstalled does windows update try to install a driver on its own?

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?

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.

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.

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,

Hoping I can get some help here, this has been frustrating me for a while now.
 

I have two input devices, my Y470's Synaptics trackpad and a Logitech mouse.
 
When using Firefox only with my mouse, pages scroll multiple lines at a time, like they should. If after starting Firefox I scroll with the trackpad, then switch back to my mouse, pages will scroll one line at a time. This persists until I close Firefox.
 
It's as if Firefox chooses the scrolling speed based on which input device it detects first.
 
The problem seems to go away when rolling back to Lenovo's/Synaptics' Windows XP touchpad driver (15.x). However, these older drivers are limited in functionality.
 
Can anyone offer some insight on this? Many thanks.

Hey, guys. I've upgraded my G470 to windows 8 and, since that, the Synaptics driver is not working anymore. Everytime I install the driver, I recieve this message (found it on the internet, from a person with the same problem): http://www.eightforums.com/attachments/f1/f23/14560d1357816078-unable-connect-synaptics-pointing-dev...  "Unable to connect to synaptics pointing device driver". Then, I have to uninstall it, loosing all it's functions. I've tried to upgrade to the latest version (16.3.8.8), but it didn't work. Is there a way to fix it? Thanks.

I am looking for a Synaptics driver that can do the following: 2-finger-tap to right clickPalmcheckNon-laggy movement So far I cannot tap with two fingers to get a right click. I have to CLICK with two fingers to get a right click.Palmcheck works. I can finally use my keyboard and touchpad AT THE SAME TIME.But.. The movement sucks. When I move the cursor around slowly, it jumps around and is inaccurate. Does anyone know a driver that works? I NEED palmcheck, otherwise I cannot use my touchpad and keyboard at the same time.

I was deleting another program using add/remove programs, and I just clicked wrong and accidentally removed the synaptics driver. I tried to fix the problem by downloading it, but it didn't work. Upon startup, my netbook tells me:

-Missing TouchPad Driver, TouchPad switch hot key is void. Please install TouchPad Driver.
-that new hardward has been installed, but there is a problem and it's not working correctly; when I try to go into the wizard to install, it searches for the new hardware forever and does not find it.
-that no antivirus program is detected on my computer, which is not true, because i have microsoft essentials installed, running, updated, and just did a scan.

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.

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!

That's all right, everything is set up and managed in the whole deal, except that the behavior of the middle button at the touchpad is not configurable and always operates on a scroll.Those. in the latest version of the drivers, this option has a check box, and there, only the behavior of a button it affects in any way, even to put - at least not put - scrolling! The only solution to remove the drivers synaptics and work under the standard windows driver for the mouse, but it is not convenient - every day this piece of *** is trying to roll the same curve of the driver and to please me broken middle button, which the browser is much more necessary to function as a middle mouse button (opening and closing tabs).However, can someone scroll function is very necessary, but obviously not for me, please add the ticket to synaptics, cause they the one, who coukd fix the bug.
