    I have a Lenovo Y580 laptop. I installed fresh Windows 10 Pro x64 a couple of weeks ago. I have tried to use this driver ( but after each time I install it Windows 10 update keeps reverting the driver back to the earlier version. I have also tried the official Microsoft troubleshooter tool to hide the Synaptics Driver in Windows Update but it did not work. It just keeps replacing it with the older version every time which is quite frustrating.
    So at the moment I am on and I am also experiencing the issue of some clicks not getting registered when I use the touchpad's clicking mechanism. (mentioned earlier in this thread)

    If someone could help or suggest something I would highly appreciate it!
    Thank you!
    I had similar issues with Win10 reverting to a 2006 driver... refuses to install here on Acer 5750G either by pointing driver search to the download from device man or by clicking the direct setup in the download. Luckily? I have 16.2.10 saved and this Win8 driver not only installs but is functional in every aspect.


    I noticed in a split second, whereas the linked driver takes much longer and works. HTH someone.

    Thanks for the reply!
    Do you experience any issues, anomalies or artifacts with the touchpad's clicking and pointing mechanism or does everything work flawlessly?
    I am on (Win10) and still having issues with touchpad clicks not getting registered plus also when I am using the scroll bar there are random dislocating cursor movements which prevents me to scroll properly. Needless to say, both of these are quite frustrating when I am using the touchpad.

    P.S.: Are you also saying that Windows 10 Update does not try to use its own signed driver on your computer anymore and lets you use your own?

    I downloaded as many drivers from Acer for this laptop as I could find and didn't manually update any just relying on Win10 to install newer versions. Even after clean installs I started with the same set of drivers...

    When I found this thread I tried to install 16.0.19 but couldn't (see above). As I said it (the 2006 driver) worked perfectly otherwise.

    You can only try see if it works for you.

    I wouldn't be concerned with the fact it came from the Acer site... it was likely only made available as a service rather than include any specific Acer changes.

    I'm saying that after installing the 2006 driver manually, the driver was never updated by Win10 despite keeping the OS fully up to date over probably 6-7 months.

    I see. Thanks for the reply!
    Well, for me Win10 on this Lenovo forces me to use this from 29/05/2015 which is at least not from 2006 but if I get you right I could try to install a Win 8 driver. I am not sure if I would want to use an older driver. However should these issues of mine get more desperate I might as well try that.

    HP Stream Notebook (Energy Star) 11-d015na. I upgraded from Windows 8.1 to 10 and, had to do a recovery job about 2 months ago. Trouble is, the Synaptics Pointing Device Driver is (according to Windows Compatibility scanner, it's x32. I need an x64, which seems almost impossible to find! (And, that's using HP Forums). Could anyone please help, me being of limited tech. knowledge.

    For me Win10 installed it automatically though.

    Also what is the name of the x64 .inf to use for update synSmbDrv.inf or SynPD.inf??
    Thank you.
    It's synSmbDrv.inf but sometimes Synaptics package that file as a synSmbDrv.ini file (an INI file instead of an INF file).

    No matter, copy the synSmbDrv.ini file and save it as synSmbDrv.inf file.
    I had to do this with Toshiba based Synaptics drivers as the "generic" Synaptics drivers from the Synaptics support site don't work properly on my dad's Toshiba C55Dt laptop. Latest Toshiba based Synaptics Touchpad driver I can find is v19.2.25.9 from the TCH0321200A.exe file [for Toshiba & Dynabook laptops only].

    Seems the new Creators Update build changed the drivers for touchpad because now clicking with the touchpad does not works, the cursor can be moved, but i cannot click anything.
