Complaint to Acer: No fully working Synaptics-Touchpad-Driver for Windows 8.1 and E5-771G available?

Hi out there,


the functionality of the touchpad-driver is rather rudimetary. It operates only as "Microsoft Mouse" and doesn't provide setups of the properties of a modern touchpad. When a correct working driver will be provided?


Due to missing support of the touchpads hardware ID "ACPI\VEN_SYN&DEV_1B7C"
the drivers from Synaptics also doesn't work.


Does somebody know an alternative driver?

    Enter the BIOS and change the touchpad from advanced to normal, after that you have the full driver support.

    Hi Chris_LSZO,


    thank's for your reply. But whatever I set up in the BIOS the touchpad driver does detect a standard Microsoft mouse instead of a Synaptic touchpad.


    Other solution?


    Thank you in advance
