    Adude, welcome to the forums. Go to the Acer site, input your model and download the right driver.

    Manufacturers who do precision touchpads don't include drivers as they are supposedly included within Windows 8.1. This causes issues for those of us who want to install other OSs like Windows 7 or some builds of Windows 10. I wish the manufacturers or MS themselves would release a driver for situations where "it should be included in the OS" doesn't work.

    My precision touchpad works under Windows 10, actually better than it does on 8.1, until the stupid graphics driver update breaks my computer.

Anyone getting a prompt to update to Build 10061 but having it fail? I'm getting a 'Push' but, seeing as I'm running a leaked build, it seems to be failing out.
