Hello! I recently purchased an Aspire V3-572G. My touchpad works fine, supporting multi touch and scrolling, but I noticed in Control Panel--> Mouse there is no Synaptics tab. Under Mice and pointing devices in device manager there is only HID-compliant mouse. I downloaded the Synaptics driver through the acer website, ran setup , and it said it was successful. Yet there is still no Synaptics tab , Synaptics icon to configure settings, nor any new Synaptics touchpad under device manager, even after a restart. I've tried refreshing my notebook, but it didn't work to solve it.
The touchpad works fully, yet I find it disconcerting that I can not configure any of the settings or even get confirmation that the Synaptics driver was actually installed. If anyone has encountered this problem please let me know, or if they have any clues to solve it.
I should write that I have also tried this process with ELANTECH drivers to cover my bases if I was wrong about the manufacturer, but that also did nothing.
