    How do i turn off zoom function of synaptics touch pad Hp laptop

    Are you talking about the two finger zoom by spreading your fingers apart on the touchpad to zoom out or pinching them together to zoom back in?
    This works for Dell touch pads so below where it says ‘Dell touchpad’ it probably says HP touchpad?

    · Goto your control panel
    · Click on ‘Mouse’
    · Click on the ‘Dell touchpad’ tab
    · On the resultant popup screen, double click on the main touch pad region
    · Click on the ‘gestures’ setting
    · Uncheck the zoom
    Good luck…Chris

    I have a philips freevents 12nb5800 laptop and the keyboard doesnt work properly. Some keys dont work and some only work intermittently

    The Philips Freevents 12nb5800 is actually a Twinhead J12S
    The XP drivers are hard to find but they are on the Twinhead Austrailia website here;
    I installed the intel VGA driver from this which allowed we to use two screens.
