    Hey
    i just upgraded to Windows 10, and everything is working fine exept for my Elan touchpad.
    I have never experienced it not working for Windows 8.
    Please help.
    "Go to your PC manufacture's support page an find Windows 10 touchpad drivers. Uninstall the old and reinstal the drivers that you just downloaded from the PC manufacture. I did this with my ASUS and the left and right mouse buttons work and the movement of the cursor works and after rebooting windows does not switch it back to disable the touch pad. The ELAN touchpad now works like it did in 8.1.

    None of these suggestions worked for me on my Asus. So I went to mouse properties, driver tab and rolled back recently upgraded drivers and that forced reboot. Everything worked after reboot.

    Toshiba released a new Synaptics driver yesterday that worked for me:

    This is the driver I mentioned earlier already! v17 is not new, it is from 2013. The v19 driver is the new one, which doesn't seem to work on a lot of systems.

    Remember, when you install this one, you need to hide the v19 in Windows Update, or it will get updated with the faulty one again.

    Thanks, Rudy! I missed that. The driver install file is new as of yesterday and allows non-techies to not have to delete any drivers. I'll watch for Windows over-writing it...hopefully this fixes that, too.

    After a clean install on my Acer Aspire | M my driver was wonky too. Started scouring the web for a solution, in the meantime it rebooted after an update and lo and behold, it was working again! I reckon a new Synaptic driver was a part of the Windows update?

    I am searching for fixes using my tablet but can't utilize them because I can't do anything without the touchpad. The tab and arrow buttons on the keyboard only go across not able to open internet browser or device settings.

    UPDATE: I FIXED MY TOUCHPAD! Not sure if this might help anyone else, but here's what I found...

    I was looking at my function keys. On my Gateway, NV53A, I noticed F6... it shows what I thought was a screen, with a finger touching it, and the circle with a line in it (on/off presumably). Out of curiosity, I hit Fn+F6, and BAM!! I have my touchpad back!

    Not sure where else I could post this to help, but all week I have been looking thru 100's of posts about the same issue. I don't know that this is the perfect answer, but it solved my problem.

    I also had a problem with my touchpad (Toshiba laptop). The touchpad worked, except for the Windows 8/10 new functions, like scrolling by swiping with two fingers, and so on.

    I checked the version installed and it was v19, I went back to v17 to make it work again. However, then Windows Update installed v19 again and it was broken again. Eventually, I had to rollback to v17 and then hide the Synaptic update from Windows 10 to keep it working.

    It seems the new update from Synaptic isn't working with older touchpads anymore, or... there is a bug in v19. We will probably notice it when the next update for the touchpad comes out.
    I also have a Toshiba laptop and the switch for my touch pad would not or will not operate. I checked the device drivers and it showed no conflicts and that it was working okay.. Then I realized that I had some F-keys controls, damned if I couldn't turn the touch pad off/on with the F-key's...

    To fix this problem all you have to do is go under you devices, to the mouse and touchpad tab and go to additional options. once here go to the hardware tab, click on you elan mouse and go to the properties.Once here you will want to go to the driver tab and push the roll back driver button. This will give you the windows 8 software and your mouse will start working after you restart your computer. DO NOT PAY TO GET THIS FIXED.
