Windows 7: Touchpad issues after Win 7 upgrade

Touchpad issues after Win 7 upgrade

Hi,

I completed a clean install of Win 7 from Vista last week. Since this was done, the touchpad functionality has gone.

PackardBell TJ65
The pointer function works but none of the slide functions.

I have installed the drivers from the PB website, I have also contact the TechGuys where I bought the computer and they are at a loss.

Any help would be greatly received.

LF.

Hi there, I work for The Techguys.

You will need the Synaptics Touchpsd Pointing Device Driver.

D/L from here and virtual scrolling should be enabled by default.

Drivers | Synaptics

Choose the correct Bit version for your OS and should be fine.

Post back if needed but should work fine I reckon.

"should work fine I reckon."

In short doesn't. But by posting that I have contact the techguys and they are at a loss . . (I have an email from them saying exactly that) I don't think following the same instructions again is going to work.

But for the record, I have tried and it still hasn't worked.

Do you have these boxes ticked on the driver settings?

In the right place mate!! Click on settings, then expand scrolling and highlight (not expand) One finger scrolling and tick (if not ticked already) the scrolling for both at the top. When you are there ya screen will look like mine! this should work fine if not ticked!!

Dont enable Coasting as gets quite annoying!!

you just helped me as well. Thank you Tezlewis. When I scroll it goes nuts. I will check on my settings when I get a chance and turn off coasting. Thanks

1)) remove this synaptics driver, 2)) restart your pc, 3)) go to windows update, check for updates & it'll notify you about synaptics driver being there for you, 4)) select it, install, 5)) restart ... 6)) go to settings as mentioned by "tezlewis" & everything will be fine you'll find the option you are seeking for..i hope =)
i had the same problem couple of days ago on a toshiba a200-28m laptop
