The touchpad on my Swift 3 (SF314-52G) appears to stop responding after using it for a while. I noticed that the usable duration before the touchpad stops responding is decreased when using it to zoom and scroll windows.
This problem happened last week when I was using my device. It never ran into such a problem in the past.
I made several attempts at trying to solve this problem. I tried updating the driver but Windows has determined that my current one is the most suitable. I tried toggling on and off the touchpad (my touchpad was configured to remain on when a mouse is plugged in btw) but it didn't do anything. I tried disabling and enabling the touchpad (it's HID-compliant touch pad) in Device Manager, but it did nothing. Re-installing it had no effect as well. Restarting my laptop appears to fix it, but the problem comes back after a while of usage.
However, disabling and enabling the I2C HID Device in Device Manager seems to fix the problem. However, after a while, it just stops working again.
There is a "Power Management" tab for the I2C HID Device (not the touchpad) and unchecking the first box ("allow the computer to turn off this device to save power") doesn't solve the problem either.
Uninstalling and restarting my laptop (so that Windows can detect and re-install the driver) also has no effect; the touchpad stops responding after a while.
I tried using Acer Care Center to help me check for updates, but there don't seem to be any.
Is there anything that I can do to solve this problem so that I can use my touchpad reliably again?
