Acer :: Synaptic Touchpad Customization MissingAspire 5315

Mar 18, 2008

I've got a Aspire 5315 which I configured for my brother in law by removing Vista and replacing with XP (SP2).

Everything is peachy, it is a great computer for the price (got it at W*M) except for some reason I can't get customization features on the synaptics touchpad.

I've got the latest drivers installed for XP (x32) - which is 10.8.10 I think... but the menu isn't there to customize things like, disabling tapping on the touchpad. I noticed on the synaptics download page it says:

Note: Installing a generic driver can result in the loss of customized Synaptics pointing device functionality.

is there a way to get a non-generic driver? any help would be appreciated.

oh and someone mentioned flashing the BIOS, is that safe? would I need to do that before this problem can be fixed? is the touchpad issue related to the BIOS? how do I know if it is already up to date?

Acer Aspire E3 112 :: Right Click On Synaptic Touchpad Not Working On Ubuntu 14.04 Or 14.10

Jan 31, 2015

I have successfully installed Ubuntu on my Aspire E3 112 and after a bit of fannying around with setting a System Password in the BIOS and trusting the Grub2 EFI settings, I have a stable system that boots in to both Ubuntu and Windows 8.1 with Bing. 
 
BUT , The right click doesn't work on the Synaptic Touchpad. No matter where I click on the touchpad it is recognised as a left click.
 
I've tried installing the GPointing Device Setting but  there aren't any config settings for right click.
 
I've heard that Synaptics have a product (Synaptics Gesture Suite for Linux -  SGS-L) but it's only available to OEM suppliers.

Acer :: 5315 Touchpad Is Unresponsive

Sep 23, 2009

I sorted my 5315's battery problem (it was the AC adapter), only to find that now the touchpad is quite unresponsive. It won't move smoothly, constantly stopping and starting.

I've played with all the settings I can find, and installed the latest Synaptics XP driver, but Windows seems to see it as a "PS/2 port pointing device" - the laptop doesn't have a PS/2 port, so this is obviously incorrect.

Dell Studio 1558 :: Synaptic Touchpad Not Working

Jan 29, 2012

I have been using a Dell Studio 1558. However, for the last 2 days, my Dell touch-pad has not been working. I have tried uninstalling and re-installing the drivers. I have taken the drivers from the driver disks that came with my laptop as well as the drivers from the dell website.

I have also tried using system restore to roll back to a time much before the problem had started to appear. This has not resolved the problem as the touch-pad is still not working.

On checking in the Device Manager, the device is not normally visible. when all hidden devices are seen, the Dell Touch-pad icon appears with a yellow exclamation mark.

The error code shown is "This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed. (Code 24)"

I have tried to update the driver from the device properties, but i get a message that the latest driver is already installed.

I am unable to diagnose the problem.

Dell Studio 1747 :: Auto-Scroll On Synaptic TouchPad

Jul 9, 2010

My computer is the dell 1747 Studio Laptop running Windows 7 Professional.  It has the built-in Synaptics Touch Pad.  When you drag your finger on the far right side of the pa, it auto scrolls through the document on the screen.

I use  my Laptop almost exclusively with a remote desktop connection.  I process large documents (some as many as 200 pages).  If I accidentally drag my hand or finger up or down on the left side of the touch pad, it begins to scroll.  Since it is a remote desktop connection, it will not stop scrolling until it reaches the end of the document either up or down.  I have to sit and wait for it to finish scrolling before I can use the computer again.

I would like to know how to turn OFF auto scrolling on the touch pad.  There is a "wheel" setting in the device setup menu but you can only turn it down to "1" not "zero".

Lenovo B / G Series :: G510 - Synaptic Touchpad / Turn Of Palmcheck?

Aug 28, 2014

I have a recently gotten my Lenovo g510, with a synaptics touchpad. My problem is that when I write, I can't move my pointer at the same time. It's like when I type my touchpad gets disabled, and when I stop the typing it enables again. I've seen some places that it's just to turn of/on palmcheck? But I can't find it in my settings. It looks like my menu is more up to date than the others, and therefore they have more detailed menus, but mine is pretty simple.  

I will add a picture of my menu, when I go to my mouse settings, and then the settings for the synaptics. 

Link to image ...

This is the picture most of the people refere to, but I don't have that menu ...

Dell :: New IDT Audio Driver / Synaptic Touchpad Buff For SXPS 1640

Dec 8, 2009

a new IDT audio driver to test ! It seems to me the slight pop when changing song in WMP12 is gone but I'm not too sure. I just downloaded it and might need more people to test it out to see if it fixes the crackling/popping sound.

Quote:

IDT Audio Driver Version 6.10.0.6255

Second, a new Synaptics touchpad driver to update too. I've always wanted to double tap to access the secondary menu like mac and I found a way to it ! With this 2-finger-gesture tool, our touchpad is exactly like MAC ! (no four fingers yet though) And now, you can double tap like mac multitouch to initiate secondary menu !

Get the latest here

HP Split 13 X2 :: Ultrabook Synaptic Touchpad / Clickpad Cursor Disappears While Working

Jan 11, 2014

HP Split 13 X2  Ultrabook - Windows 8.1 (64 Bit) I have an HP Split x2 Ultrabook that I purchased a month or so ago.

I upgraded to Windows 8.1 recently. I have noticed that my touchpad freezes and my cursor no longer works, no matter how many times I click or try to revive it. If I then start using the touch screen, the cursor disappears altogether and does not come back. This happens completely randomly - sometimes every couple of hours, other times more than once an hour. It has nothing to do with how many programs I have open or how often I am using it.

I go to Device Manager to check the mouse/pointer, and it says the device is working correctly. It also says all available updates have been installed. Most of the times I have to shut my computer and wait for about 30 seconds before opening it, and then the mouse will reappear. But the problem surfaces again after sometime...I am fedup with restarting my laptop everytime.

Acer :: 8930 Synaptic Tool

Jul 30, 2009

i just recently bought an acer 8930g laptop, when i log into msn the synaptic tool crashes causing the scroll on the touchpad to stop functioning, however i have uninstalled the touchpad diver and got another from manufacturs website and installed it, it still doesnt seem to solve the issue, i have done a system restore, that didnt help either.

i think its msn that causes it to crash but not 100% sure tho as i have tried to test to see what causes it to crash, i did this by loggin into msn out of 10 times about 7 of the time it crashed, so am pretty sure its msn, maybe i might be wrong and please correct if i am.

below i will paste the error that i get, i got this by going on the event viewer.

on the general tab:

Faulting application SynTPEnh.exe, version 10.2.4.1, time stamp 0x47f6c0c1, faulting module SynTPEnh.exe, version 10.2.4.1, time stamp 0x47f6c0c1, exception code 0xc0000409, fault offset 0x0002988c, process id 0x17bc, application start time 0x01ca1060bf9b1946.

Acer Aspire V5 573G :: Synaptic Multi-touch Gestures Not Configurable / Working

Nov 29, 2014

i'm having problems with my new acer v5 touchpad... i made a clean install of windows 8.1 and installed all the win 8.1 drivers from the acer support site. from the device id of my touchpad (ACPISYN1B71) i assumed that it is a synaptics model.
 
the problem now: after installing several versions of the driver, even trying the alps and elantech versions, i could never manage to get multi-gesture settings in the settings windows from synaptics - there are only settings visible for right- and left-click. where are the multi-touch gesture options for windows 8?
 
basic funtions work, like left click, two-finger right click and two-finger scrolling, but nothing is configurable and all the other gestures are not available.

Dell :: Ericsson Wireless Manager Customization

May 5, 2009

Recently bought a dell 5530 card, installed GPS enabled drivers and wireless manager - everything works smooth now. The were some issues with wireless manager I didn't like and had to fix. So I thought that it might be usefull for someone else.

What I've solved for now:
1. WL didn't allowed me to lock UMTS mode (sim card specific issue). When I tried to select "HSPA/UMTS only" it just showed me empty message box.
2. WL didn't start in mode.
3. There were no possibility to quickly switch from 2G to 3G and back, and to switch on GPS.


Didn't had much time to spend on it, so chose most simple (and dirty) way:
1 and 2 was resolved with code modification (might be illegal ): removed restrictions on band switch and made it always start minimized.
3 - with custom buttons, icons and some scripts .....

Sony :: Vaio F: Choosing The Display While In Customization

Jan 13, 2010

How much would the difference in the Display be if I choose:

i) 16.4" VAIO Display (1600x900) with NVIDIA GeForce 310M GPU (512MB VRAM)

While customizing the F instead of:

ii) 16.4" VAIO Premium Display (1920x1080) with NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M GPU (1GB VRAM)

The second option is Full HD and seems to have a more powerful graphics card but I heard with the first one I would have more battery life?

What are the positives and negatives of each?

Dell :: RAM Speed Discrepancy Between Main Site And Customization Screen

May 3, 2010

I've been looking at the studio 1558 deal on the dell.ca website. The specifications say that the ram is 1333mhz, but on the customization page and review screen it says the ram is 1066mhz.

I'm looking at getting it with the i7 , so the ram speed matters. Which one is correct, the main site or the customization screen?

Acer :: HDD - With Aspire 5315

Nov 26, 2008

I got a problem with my Acer Aspire 5315. The HDD is shown in the bios but won't show in Vista most of the time. The HDD is completely formated, including the Acer partition. So recovery is not an option.

The problem is strange because it is not consistent. Sometimes I am able to acces the drive and install Vista. But then the next day,when i try to boot again, i only see a cursor after the Acer boot screen.

I've tried running in IDE mode. I also tried replacing the HDD with a new one. I installed vista with the correct Intel driver.

I also tried running Linux live cd. It also sees the HDD drive correctly but when i try to acces it, the program freeses.

I'm affraid something is wrong with the I/O controller, or it is a loose cable.
If you think otherwise, please let me know. If not, i'd like to know how I can check the HDD cable.
