Synaptics Touchpad not working

Hi,

 

You could try the following.

 

Hold down the Windows key and press R

 

Into the Run window, type devmgmt.msc and hit enter.

 

In Device Manager, expand Mice and other pointing devices.  Right click the Synaptics device and select Uninstall - you should also get a prompt to remove the current driver, tick the box to allow this and then proceed with the uninstall.

 

When this has completed, shutdown the notebook and then disconnect any peripherals ( ie usb mouse etc ).

 

Unplug the AC Adapter and then remove the battery.  Hold down the Power button for 30 seconds.  Re-insert the battery and plug in the AC Adapter.

 

Tap away at the esc key as you start the notebook to launch the Start-up Menu and then select f10 to enter the bios menu.  Press f9 to load the defaults ( this is sometimes f5, but the menu at the bottom will show the correct key ), use the arrow keys to select 'Yes' and hit enter.  Press f10 to save the setting and again use the arrow keys to select 'Yes' and hit enter.

 

Let windows fully load and see if you have basic touchpad functionality - if you do, download and install the Synaptics driver below.

When this installation has completed, restart the notebook again.

 

Regards,

Synaptics Touchpad not working

Hi,

 

Shutdown the notebook and disconnect any external pointing device.

 

Tap away at the esc key as you start the notebook to enter the Start-up Menu.  Select the Diagnostic Menu option ( f2 ).

 

Does the touchpad work in this menu?

Hi,

 

Did the touchpad work when you were in the Diagnostic Menu?
