Synaptics Touchpad query?

2016-12-01, 11:28 AM

My mouse pointer was getting locked & would start functioning when any key was pressed on key board. Further pointer was automatically selecting last file in a folder. I updated touchpad driver (windows 10), but problem persisted. Now I uninstalled synaptic software related to touchpad. How to re-installed the same. On Lenovo support site only drivers update is available.

You have to turn palm tracking to the lowest setting in the Synaptics Control Panel. Look up Mouse Properties, click on Additional Mouse Options, click on Device Settings tab, select Synaptics click pad, go to Advanced tab.

Hi thoria,
The only way of reinstalling software that is preinstalled to the machine is to preform a factory reset on the unit.
I can provide instructions if you are unsure of how to complete this.

Hi Neo,

Thanks for ur response. Somehow I manage to install software for pointing device. Now touchpad is working, but issue is mouse pointer is in locked position after every re-boot. Its get unlocked after pressing anyone key on keyboard. Without using touchpad, wireless mouse works after re-boot, but it automatically selects last file in the folder. After I press one of the arrow key, then it works normally.
