Just bought this laptop for my wife and she's ready to throw it out the window. She complains of it constantly zooming in and out and the cursor moving all over. I'm assuming she's bumping the touchpad because the thing is so huge.
Is there any way to use it like a normal touchpad and disable all the fancy gestures, zooming, etc? I don't want to disable to entire touchpad since she uses it as the mouse, just all the extra, fancy things it does...
Solved! Go to Solution.

I have had the same issue..I am not sure why everything is working fine now but it is - crazy. I actually had zoom and double finger scrolling uncheclked and now I have them checked again. I went thru device manager and uninstalled the touchpad driver. Then after rebooting I went to http://www.synaptics.com/resources/drivers/ and downloaded " Windows XP/Vista and Win7 64-bit Edition v15.2.20" it seems now to be more responsive than the one LENOVO has pre-installed. Still testing though
I also as an option did the following:

I found that my Z 500 ideapad has an Elan touchpad rather than Synaptics.
I don't know if the Synaptics drivers work with it or not. The options are a little different for the Elan driver. I disabled the swipe in from edge gesture that kept pulling up the charms menu in the middle of things. Here's how to locate the driver options:
