Windows Vista on my Acer Aspire 5735 recognizes my synaptics touchpad only as a PS/2 compatible mouse - not functioning fully RRS feed

  • Question

  • I notice recently that my synaptics touchpad does not have full functionality - no scrolling and no pinch-action zoom that the computer originally came with.  The hard drive was replaced, and rescue CD's were used to reinstall Windows Vista Home Premium.

    It thinks the device is working properly and will not update the driver.  How can I get this fixed?

  • Visit Acer Support and download the Synaptics TouchPad Driver for Windows Vista and install it.
