Windows 7: Can't install touchpad driver on Acer laptop

Can't install touchpad driver on Acer laptop

I have an Acer ES1-512 laptop, on which I have installed Windows 7 on BIOS(Legacy) mode. I have installed all working drivers except the touchpad driver. The driver on the Acer website is only installable on Windows 10, so when I downloaded and tried to install it, it said that no device was found for a driver update. This is very frustrating, because:
1. The touchpad automatically clicks when i touch it.
2. I can't scroll with it.

If there is anything I can do to fix this problem, please tell me.
Thanks in advance :)

For anyone having the same problem, here's how I solved it:
I found the Hardware ID of the touchpad in the Device Manager, and searched it on google. This came up Search for drivers ACPI\ETD050A and I downloaded the driver there and it worked
