I bought a Lenovo P500 Ideapad with Win8, i did a downgrade to Win7. It seems that all the drivers were successfully installed, but when i was trying to install the touchpad driver i got an error message saying that the driver is not for that touchpad, even if i try to install it manually and running setup as administrator. I downloaded this driver from the lenovo support page for this laptop for win7.
The touchpad works, but it too slow and it takes like 6 scrolls in order to get from 1 side of the screen to the other.
Did anybody have this same issue??
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your response, well i've tried to install both synaptics and Elan drivers.
For the Elan Tech driver, i couldnt get it from their site, they only offer like a FAQ page.
Besides im not really sure which manufacturer my touchpad is : /
I even tried to download this driver from other similar lenovo models but stll no success.

Finally i found out the manufacturer, it turns out that the manufacturer was Synaptics, i dont know why with the driver provided by lenovo it didnt allow me to install it.
I followed your instructions and there is an option there to get the Hardware ID, I googled it and i noticed that it was a synaptics touchpad and download the driver from their page.
Thanks a lot for your help.
