Alps touchpad not working properly with Windows 8 dm4-2070us

I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8 on my dm4-2070us laptop, and now I no longer have use of scrolling or gestures on the Alps touchpad. The left and right buttons work and I can move the cursor anywhere on the screen, but that's it. Everything else seems to be working properly. I cannot find any Windows 8 drivers anywhere for the Alps touchpad. Has anyone else noticed this happening? I'm hoping that a new driver will be developed soon but not optimistic. Any suggestions out there?

Hi,

 

The ALPS Win8 driver for dm4-2xxx will be SP58700 and should appear on the ftp site when it is released.  I don't have an ETA but it should be soon. 

 

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp58501-59000/

I suggest that you keep checking back on the web support portal downlad section every couple of days. I have noticed that more and more drivers are becoming available for notebook models over the past week.
