My Aspire M5-481PT laptop was working fine for months with Windows 10, then suddently the trackpad stopped working after an automatic update.
I was able to install the most recent Synaptic Windows 10 driver, and after a few hours of farting around got the trackpad to work again, but the two finger scrolled still doesn't work...it doesn't show up as an option in the Synaptic settings (see screenshot):
Has anyone come up with a fix for this?
This seems to be a common issue with Windows 10 and the new automatic driver updating which is impossible to turn off. Come on Microsoft / Acer, how could a critical piece of hardware like this stop working?! Let's do some better testing before rolling out updates....every time I waste hours to getting my computer to work with little support from the manufacturers, I am a one step closer to buying an Apple machine next time.
Thanks for your help,
