Hello @DXM09 


Welcome to the HP Support Community.

Follow the steps .


If the article does not help, ensure the driver version is correct.



There is only one correct version for your PC model and it is based on the Windows edition you use.


  • Go to Start, type  winver  and open the application. Check the Windows version and build
  • Go to Start, type Device Manager and open the application
  • Find it and locate "Mice and other pointing devices". Expand the section
  • Right click on the device (probably Synaptics) and choose to uninstall it
  • Get the latest (correct) driver based on your Windows version - found in winver information







Hope this helps. Let me know how it goes.
