Windows 7: 32 bit Win7 Dell Touchpad Drive needed

32 bit Win7 Dell Touchpad Drive needed

I am looking for an alternate touchpad drive to install in my Dell Inspiron 1720 that is compatible for 32 bit Win 7. My warranty went up and Dell will not give me the compatible programs unless I pay.

I'm assuming there is a generic drive out there, somewhere, that does the trick. All I need is to increase the sensitivity, speed, and disable tap-click.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would also like to add that I attempted to install Synaptics, but I guess I don't know how it works because I went through the downloading process, restarted my computer like it asked, and could not find where to change the touchpad settings

Synpatics doesn't install any cute applications. In order to change your settings, you need to go to the mouse properties (orb -> type "mouse"); there will be a tab for Synaptics.
