Windows 7: Turbo Boost and touchpad drivers

Windows 7 Pro x64
Turbo Boost and touchpad drivers

So, I just got my new laptop in the mail yesterday.

(copy/paste from my email)


dv6t Quad Ed
Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
2nd generation Intel(R) Quad Core(TM) i7-2720QM (2.2 GHz, 6MB L3 Cache) w/Turbo Boost up to 3.3 GHz
1GB GDDR5 Radeon(TM) HD 6770M Graphics [HDMI, VGA]
FREE Upgrade to 8GB DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm)
FREE Upgrade to 750GB 5400RPM Hard Drive with HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection
No Additional Office Software
FREE Upgrade to Norton Internet Security(TM) 2011 - 15 Month Subscription (activation required)
6-Cell Lithium-Ion Battery (standard) - Up to 5.5 hours of battery life +++
15.6" diagonal High Definition HP BrightView LED Display (1366x768)
SuperMulti 8X DVD+/-R/RW with Double Layer Support
HP TrueVision HD Webcam with Integrated Digital Microphone and HP SimplePass Fingerprint Reader
Intel 802.11b/g/n WLAN
Standard Keyboard
HP Home & Home Office Store in-box envelope
Anyway.. it's all gravy and whatnot, but I reformatted because I wanted to install my 7 Professional on it, which went along pretty well, but I'm facing a severe issue right now:

I can't use the double-tap feature in the upper left corner of my touchpad to turn it off, and I don't have my TurboBoost driver. Neither of them were on the HP website (where I got all the other drivers).. I'm desperate right now, because I've been searching and searching, with no results.

I'm getting a blank error message on that one. Probably the same error I was getting before, about how my system doesn't meet requirements.

Hi kbronski, try right clicking on the .exe file and running in compat mode Compatibility Mode did the touch pad driver work for you ?

No, I just downloaded a generic synaptic driver and ran that. at least I have the scrolling feature unlocked.. it's just that the on/off tap feature isn't there, and I was wanting that.

Also, I just found the turboboost driver. Turns out it's just a desktop gadget? So lame.
