Hi all, i recently purchased a re-furbished 1040 G2 running W7 64 bit and am having a peculiar problem with the touchpad. Sometimes when I am 2 finger scrolling an icon is left behind on the screen and if I mouse over it I get the spinning blue symbol showing activity. The icon is the same as you would normally see while scrolling. I did try uninstalling and re-installing the driver, the driver is Synaptics version 188.8.131.52.

Often, the touchpad functionality can be affected by an out of date BIOS or out of date Chipset drivers. I would recommend updating those drivers as well as any graphics drivers (since, from your description, it seems like it could also be a graphics issue).
Here is the link for the most recent drivers from the Drivers and Downloads support site for your unit:
Hope this helps!

I suggest you use HP SoftPaq Download Manager to keep you drivers current.
The following link will give you information on SDM (SoftPaq Download Manager), SSM (System Software Manager), BCU (BIOS Configuration Utility and HPIA (Image Assistant).
