When I installed Windows 7 RC on my DELL 1520, the Synaptics Touchpad was recognized as a PS/2 compatible mouse. I missed the scroll function of the touchpad driver. Since the Windows 7 is just came out, there is no dedicated driver for it.
I have recently purchased an Acer Aspire 6530 laptop, which comes shipped with Windows Vista x86. I promptly made the restore DVDs, and installed Windows 7 x64, with no issues, except, one rather important one: the TouchPad driver does not work.
When Windows first booted, the driver that comes with Windows worked fine. You did not get the scroll functionality from the side of the pad, which is meant to act like a scroll, but it recognized movement and the two click buttons. After getting on the Internet, Windows automatically went out and found the Synaptics TouchPad driver for me.
Now, according to Device Manager, the driver will function after a restart. TouchPad works fine, go to restart, driver is applied, and.. nothing. The mouse will not move. Any USB mouse if plugged in works fine, but the click buttons and the movement on the pad do nothing.
If you go into Device Manage and uninstall the device, the TouchPad works again! It seems whatever TouchPad drivers that are loaded with Windows 7 work like a charm, besides the built in scroll area, work wonderfully, but the driver that it automatically downloads/installs on boot does not after restarting and applying that driver, even though the device is fully functional according to Device Manager.
Is there any way to FORCE the built in Windows 7 drivers, or a known fix to get the normal ones to work? Does this have to do with 64bit vs 32bit at all?
Note: I have downloaded the driver from the Acer website for Vista and ran it in compatibility mode for Vista, with no change, so it is not just the one Win is automatically finding.
Note2: I tried booting without any internet connection after disabling the driver, but Windows went ahead and installed the driver anyway. It was either still downloaded, or in fact comes with 7 and is not gotten through Windows Update, but is not installed initially? Plug and play is weird sometimes =/.
I just installed Windows 7 Build 7600 and I am trying to get the touchpad scrolling to work on my Dell Inspiron 1420. I installed the synaptics drivers from their website (v10.1.8 x64) but when I go to mouse properties and click the synaptics tab it only allows me to configure the right and left click buttons. How can I configure the scrolling of my touchpad? I NEED it!
Also are there any iTunes guru's out there? I have my library all setup on my vista partition. Is there anyway I can get my library/playlists on the Windows 7 side. I don't want 2 copies of my music, I want it to all link to the files on the vista partition but I have a feeling I will have trouble either getting the playlists in or trying to gain access to those files on that partition.
I have installed the Synaptics Touchpad driver onto my new W7 install. All is working as it should, however I have a very minor problem. Whenever I logon, I am asked whether or not to run the SynTPEnh.exe process (this is the tray icon).
I was never asked in Vista whether or not to run the process, and in W7 I will always want to run it.
How do I get around this minor problem, and set it that it runs by default?
I installed Windows 7 on my laptop, and let it use the default drivers in most cases. The downside is that I lost the scroll functionality on my touchpad, which I can't see to get back any other way than using the Synaptics software.
The drivers I have on CD are quite old, but the ones from the Synaptics website seem to work fine (plus there are 32 bit and 64 bit editions):
Everything worked fine till 1 hour ago or something like that. Then everytime i press the left button it will "left button-click" AND "right button-click" and it actually does the same with the right button.
I have tried to see if the settings have been messed up, but no. Everything is normal. I have tried changing the usage of each button - like changing the right button assignemt to do a "down arrow" instead of a "special click", but then it just does a "left button-click" and the "down arrow"...
I have tried uninstalling the driver, updating the driver, rebooting the computer, changing the settings, used windows recovery...
I really don't know what to do. When I plug in a USB mouse, that works fine. No problems there. It is just the touchpad buttons...
i have a laptop which has a Synaptics touchpad it use to work well but few days it is not working well when im moving it but it moves slow and jumps here and there i cannot use it always moves from one place to another i dont know why.
I'm having a bit of a conundrum. My Toshiba touchpad has developed a bad habit of disabling itself at random.The device is listed as a Synaptics Touchpad V7.2.I'll be typing along, or moving the mouse, or just doing nothing at all (waiting for a download to finish, for instance) and the mouse will become suddenly disabled. The only way to get it back is by pressing FN+F9 or sometimes to press the enable/disable button immediately above the mouse. I know I'm not pressing either of these by accident when the mouse turns off.When this happened, I took it as a sign that it was time to reformat the hard drive and start fresh. Even during the Windows installation, the mouse continually disabled itself. After installing the Toshiba Value Added Package and the Synaptics driver, the only change is that now I can see a big icon in the center of the screen alert me when the state of the mouse switches from enabled to disabled.
I'm noticing now too that it's not just disabling itself. If I don't re-enable the mouse right away, it will renable itself after a few moments. This can happen as much as once every few seconds and makes getting any real work done impossible.
I have researched this problem quite a bit and tried several possible solutions that have worked for many users yet nothing had worked. I have tried several different drivers, tried tweaking settings with no solution in sight.
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.
I have an HP dv7-3065dx Entertainment Notebook [pavilion dv7 is the product name on the back] that I purchased from Best buy in 2010. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit that was pre-installed onto my laptop. I have been pretty thorough on keeping all of my Microsoft and HP drivers up to date and have only began to experience this problem with my touchpad earlier this month. As far as the programs that I use on a daily basis; I mostly use Mozilla Firefox as a web browser and Microsoft Word for my schoolwork and the GOM media player for watching videos. None of which I have been able to do properly since this issue established itself onto my computer.
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 220.127.116.11 (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.
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?
My Windows 7 64 bit install is all good except for the Synaptics touchpad integrated into my keyboard. It is recognized as a Microsoft Serial Mouse, but the latest Synaptics drivers don't seem to 'do' serial. I have tried the new 14.0 driver, as well as an older 9.0 version designed for 64 bit Vista, but to no avail.
I've also tried a serial to PS/2 to USB conversion, and though the touchpad is then recognized as an HID compliant mouse, I can't get it recognized as a touchpad with scrolling, etc. I can't use it as a PS/2 mouse because my new motherboard only has a PS/2 keyboard connector.
I just upgraded my father-in-law's HP G70 laptop to Windows 7 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?

I'm new to windows 7. I installed it on my Dell Inspiron e1505 32-bit. I have a question about my touchpad. I can't seem to scroll using it as I use to like I have before. I tried downloading the driver from Dell but I need to install microsoft framework 3.5 sp1. in order to get drivers from that website. Can anyone tell me how I can get the touchpad driver.
I have had this problem since installing windows 7 beta, and have not been able to find a fix, so here i go...
I have a Dell XPS m1330 and exactly 50% of the time my dell synaptics touchpad mouse driver does not work. What I mean by that is every other time i boot my computer device manager says "code 10: device cannot start". I have tried installing the lastest Dell Vista drivers for the touchpad, and I have even gone straight to synaptics website and downloaded their latest drivers as well. Neither fixed the problem.
I have an HP-dm4 2070us and the touchpad will not work. When I go to hidden devices and the driver( Alps) for it is flagged that its not working properly and has an error code 24 for not working or present. I updated the driver and bios (and before that tried rolling back the bios. I even go to Update Driver and it says it's updated and no issues, but then when I exit back out to the main list the error code is still there and it doesn't work. I have to use tab as I don't actually have a mouse. I am on a different computer now. Another HP that I can't get the wireless printer to work on (which is an HP - a gift, otherwise I at this point would not have purchased another HP product).
I recently upgraded my Sony Vaio VGN-730E/B from Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit to Windows 7 Professional 64bit. According to the Microsoft Tool for upgrading to Windows 7 and the specs for the notebook upgrading to Windows 7 64bit is possible. have tracked down and modded drivers for Nvidia GeForce 8400M GT, Wireless Card, Ethernet Adapter, Motherboard, Synaptic Touchpad...
