Windows 7: Synaptics driver issues on HP G70 laptop?

Synaptics driver issues on HP G70 laptop?

Hi folks,

I just upgraded my father-in-law's HP G70 laptop to Win7 Home Premium 64-bit. It is relatively new but had Vista on it. It was an "upgrade" and it appears to have preserved everything pretty well. A large number of updates have ben applied successfully via Windows Update. But -

There's a "virtual scrolling" feature on the trackpad, which no longer works. All the Point Device Properties applet choices seem to be correct... I am not sure why it doesn't work. Anyone got any similar experiences or theories why it wouldn't work?

Go here, choose the precise model of that G70. From the next page, choose Win7 64-bit, download the Synaptics PS/2 Port Touchpad driver and install it.

Should work now.
