Question about Computers & Internet
I am using Vista Premium 32bit on a Toshiba Satellite a205.
Just recently my Synaptics Pointing Device has been malfunctioning.
It will work for 5-10 minutes just fine after booting up. But then a bubble will popup from the icon in the tray telling me that the Features have been disabled (such as the are on the track pad that allows you to scroll up and down with ease)
This is when it will start goofing off. I will be moving my finger around but on screen the pointer will shoot in different directions randomly. Iv noticed this happens more often when I use the left mouse button on the laptop to click something. The on screen pointer will shoot off in a random direction.
It still works but its annoying and hard to use at times because its almost like it wants to be suborn and not cooperate.
I have the latest drivers - v11.2.4
Try going to synaptics website and updating the driver for this device, I had the same problem, after I updated it was fine
