Acer V5-573G Synaptics multi-touch gestures not configurable/working

hello,

 

i'm having problems with my new acer v5 touchpad... i made a clean install of windows 8.1 and installed all the win 8.1 drivers from the acer support site. from the device id of my touchpad (ACPI\SYN1B71) i assumed that it is a synaptics model.

 

the problem now: after installing several versions of the driver, even trying the alps and elantech versions, i could never manage to get multi-gesture settings in the settings windows from synaptics - there are only settings visible for right- and left-click. where are the multi-touch gesture options for windows 8?

 

basic funtions work, like left click, two-finger right click and two-finger scrolling, but nothing is configurable and all the other gestures are not available.

 

i hope for some help on this issue as i'm running out of ideas what to try...

 

cheers,

    Solved the problem myself... My touchpad seems to be one from ALPS, although the device ID shown by Windows suggests otherweise. I extracted the drivers located on my recovery partition which I kept on the HDD and they work like a charme, quite awesome how reliable the touchpad is now! Thanks for the help anyway Smiley Happy

  • May not work, but this site calls for this driver for ACPI\SYN1B71.

    Thanks, but I already tried that one. Installation worked properly, but again, only left- and right-click options, rest missing... Smiley Frustrated
