Right click the Synaptics Pointing Device and select Pointing device properties OR double click the Synaptics Pointing Device. A Mouse Properties Dialogue is displayed, then select the Device Setting Tab and then select the synaptics device under device section then select the enable button and lasting select the the Apply button.

Mousepad not working


Each Touchbad should have basic functionality by default in every Operating system, letting it be used even when no driver is installed. However, try pressing FN and F7 together and see if the touchpad works again. Some people accidently press this FN + F7 key when they mute the sound with the FN + F8 key.

The FN + F7 is there to disable/enable the touchpad as some people use a USB mouse instead of the touchpad.

If you still need the drivers, here are the download links. Please choose desired driver by Operating system and Touchpad brand...
