Windows 7: Alps Touchpad

Alps Touchpad

I am currently running Windows 7 Pro on my Vostro 2510 Laptop. It's the best deal I ever got, but the touchpad is simply wretched cause its an Alps Touchpad. The drivers are simply abominations. The only gesture my touchpad driver has is Scroll.

So I looked around, and found this newer driver. It had some decent and most basic gestures, and it sufficed for my needs. However, it causes my Aero cursor to freeze up and no longer animate. This usually forces my mind to think my computer has frozen when it has not, very discontenting.

Then I had another Idea, what if there was a way to force Synaptics driver to think my Alps touchpad is a synaptics one so I can get synaptics features?

If anyone get help me fix the error with the new Alps driver or synaptics idea or anything else, I'd appreciate it very much.

Does the Vista driver from your models support page not work correctly?

It works, however, as I stated above, the driver I have only provides me with a the scroll gesture while I want more features provided by other drivers (like the newer driver I found on the Dell site). From my research, there is no hardware limitation for touchpad gestures.
