Touch pad issues, please help.

HP Pavilion Notebook

Model: 15-n096sa

Product: F4T58EA#ABU

OS: Windows 8.1 Home Premium X64


I've installed Windows 8.1 Home Premium X64 on my notebook in the last week, it originally had version 8 installed when i bought it a month ago. Since upgrading the OS my touch pad no longer allows me to scroll with two fingers or magnify pages, use the right click function by tapping with two fingers & also bring up the options by sideswiping. All i am able to do now is move the pointer & click or double click with the pad. 


Can somebody please help me to resolve this as it's driving me crazy ? 


Thanks in advance.
