To get the scroll function working again, do the following and follow these directions exactly.

4. Place a Checkmark against Use Vertical Scrolling function and Use Vertical Scrolling function.
5. Click Apply > OK

If you have tried the above and you couldn't see the "Gestures" tab, do the following.

Download the ALPS Touchpad Driver from the HP website >here< (if the link doesn't work, go to the HP website, find the ZV5000 and look for the ALPS Touchpad driver) and save it on your desktop.

Now uninstall the old drivers using Device Manager
1. Right Click on "My computer" and select Properties
2. Click on Hardware tab > Device Manager button.
3. Click on the + sign next to Mice and pointing devices.
4. Right Click on the Alps Pointing Device and select uninstall.
5. Double Click your new driver file that was saved on your desktop, to install it.
5. Restart the ZV5000. Windows will detect the hardware and will load the new drivers for it.

Check to see if the scroll function works. If not, do the following

1. Click Start >Control Panel
2. Double click Mouse Icon
3. Click on Gestures tab
4. Place a Checkmark against Use Vertical Scrolling function and Use Vertical Scrolling function.
5. Click Apply > OK
6. Click the Setting button to adjust the scroll speed.

If you have followed exactly what I have said here, the scroll function will work fine. Let me know how you go!

Best wishes

SOURCE: my touchpad works but not its multi gesture its emachines D730

most touchpad drivers will work on windows 7 but the program which control the functionality of the touchpad "Synaptics" or ALPS" pointing device may not be compatible in win7 this is an issue with most computer manufacturers but not their fault since win7 is a new operating system and possibly in the near future who knows when windows will come with a windows update to make touchpads work in windows having all it's functionality available.

try calling your computers maker and ask if they have work arounds for your touchpad some may have options to make all your touchpads functionality work but some may not try calling them and have them check it for you, they should know better since they are trained for the specifics of your system.^_^

How to enable 2 Finger Scrolling, like MAC ie, multi touch in Windows


Multi-touch or multitouch functionality has been attracting consumer attraction, thanks to iPhone and iPod Touch, two-finger-scroll in Apple MacBook with TrackPad, and Windows 7, which has built-in multi-touch mapping application, photo viewing program, and gesture support in Internet Explorer 8. Multi-touch is essentially a set of interaction techniques which allow computerusers to interact and control graphical applications with fingers.
However, for marketing reason, Synaptics official standard drivers for most Synaptics TouchPads does not support multi-touch Synaptics Gestures. Synaptics' drivers lock gesture features on all non-supported OEM notebooks and laptop PCs, except for certain gadgets such as ASUS EEE PC. So multi-touch is disabled even though touchpad hardware does support them.
But now if you want to experiance this awesome multi touch features, well there is good news. One guy has developed a modded driver for synaptic which will enable the multi touch functionality in a normal PC with windows.
The Synaptics TouchPad driver should support all Windows operating system such as Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. However, do note that the digital signatures of the modded drivers have been broken, and the drivers are no longer signed. Thus, there may be issue when use in 64bit operating system which enforces strict driver signing requirements.
Installation:
  1. Uninstall all current Synaptics drivers from Control Panel's Add and Remove Programs or Programs and Features.
  2. Restart the computer.
  3. Install the modded driver by running the setup.exe inside the ZIP archive.
  4. Windows should prompt a warning about unsigned driver. Continue to install the driver anyway.
  5. Restart the computer after installation is completed and Synaptics TouchPad driver is updated.
  6. In Device Manager's Mouse and Other Pointing Devices" section, Synaptics PS/2 Port Touchpad should have driver version of 10.2.4.
Now just play around a little bit and you will know how awesome this features are. icon_smile.gif
Also there is a two finger scrolling application which is a project hosted in google code. So this application is all you need if you just need the 2 finger scrolling functionality in windows.
This application can be found here:
Download: http://code.google.com/p/two-finger-scroll/downloads/list
The moded drivers from synaptic can be found here:
Download synaptics_v10.2.4.0_allOS_modded_b2.zip or touchpad_synaptics_v10.2.4_vistax32x64_xpx32x64_modded_build2.zip
Or you can just download all the required files from here:
Mirrors:
  1. Synaptics Multi touch mode (all) - Selfhosted
  2. Synaptics Multi touch mode (all) - Rapidshare - Recommended
IMPORTANT: Do not upgrade the Synaptics TouchPad driver if you love these touch features, as Sypnatics locks and disable the advanced touch features from driver v11.0.0.0 onwards.

The touch mouse will scroll and move but won't click.


you might have to reset it
Most modern laptops with touchpads offer vertical scrolling, horizontal scrolling or both. These features are located along the right-hand and bottom edges of the touchpad, respectively, and are activated when you swipe your finger along the touchpad edge. Scrolling functionality is nearly always enabled by default, but some users find the feature an annoyance and elect to turn it off. In most cases you can simply turn the feature back on using the Windows Control Panel.

Click the Windows Start button, select "Settings," and then click "Control Panel." Double-click the icon labeled "Mouse." Select the Touchpad properties tab. The labeling of this tab varies, depending on your computer manufacturer, operating system version and the device drivers installed on your machine. Common labels include "Touch Pad," "Device Settings" and "Dell Touchpad." If you do not see this option, you may not be able to turn on scrolling for your laptop; skip the remaining steps and refer to the "Warnings" section below. Click the "Settings" button within the Touchpad Properties menu and look for the section labeled "Scrolling Settings" or similar. Enable scrolling within this section and define other scroll settings, such as scroll zone width and scrolling speed. Click "OK" to confirm your changes, and then close the Control Panel windows opened in the previous steps. The scrollbar on your laptop is now enabled.
Scroll Is Not Working With Windows 7 b> Certain computer touchpads have a vertical section on the pad itself that is used to scroll through the page or program window that you are currently viewing on your computer. If the scroll functionality suddenly stops working but the actual touchpad is still fine, this means that the part of the software for the device that controls the ability to use the scroll has been disabled. You can enable it again in the Control Panel.
Click "Start." Click "Control Panel." Click "Mouse." Select the "Enable Scroll" option (or whatever similarly named option is available on your specific model of laptop computer). Click "Apply." The scroll bar on your touchpad will now work again.

What is the multi gesture option available on my acer aspire timeline 4820tg and how do i switch it on or off . plz help me regarding this. regards ankit


The 4820TG's multi-gesture touchpad executes two-finger scrolling, pinch-to-zoom and rotate functions very well.The touchpad is a huge improvement from previous Acer touchpads. The touchpad is large and very responsive. The single touchpad button is comfortable to use and gentle to press. Multi-touch gestures and scrolling works well while surfing the Internet. Nevertheless, it is highly recommended to lower the sensitivity for "PalmCheck" in the Synaptics software to enable usage of the keyboard and touchpad at the same time. Enable/Disable and other touchpad settings can be made using Mouse Properties (from contril panel) and Synaptics Tab.

GoodLuck!
Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!

I can't kill the zoom feature on my Acer Laptop. It is a pain.


Go to Control Panel > Mouse > Device Settings > Settings > Advanced Gestures > Pinch

(or alternatively right-click the Synaptics Pointing Device icon in your taskbar and select Pointing Device Properties)

Untick the box that says 'Enable Pinch'. This will disable the zooming.

Additionally, you might be suffering the same problem as I was which was I had no idea how to use the zoom and that's why I wanted to lock it. Having Google stuck on too-big-to-navigate-properly or too-small-to-read for days at a time prompted me to learn. I've since decided the zoom is useful and I'm keeping the feature enabled.

Here is what Synaptics have to say about the 'pinch' gesture:
The Pinch gesture delivers zooming functionality in many applications. The Pinch gesture can be used to perform the same function as a scroll wheel on standard Windows applications that support CTRL-SCROLL WHEEL zoom functionality.

To perform a pinch gesture, place two fingers on the TouchPad surface. Move them closer together or further apart. To zoom in, place your fingers on the TouchPad surface near to each other and then slide them apart. To zoom out, begin by placing your fingers apart and then moving them closer together.

The best zooming experience results when the finger tips of the two fingers are used for the gesture.

That will hopefully be of assistance if you want to learn how to use the zoom rather than disable it. It took some practice but I can do it now without a problem so can fix windows when I accidentally zoom on them.

Mouse touchpad, keyboard, and usb drives will not work


One thing you can try (for the touchpad)

Acer have got a function key to turn it on and iff (i thought mine was broken for a year). Hold the function key, which is located bottom left of keyboard, and then press F7. It should be F7 anyway.

Hope that helps for your touchpad
