Synaptics touchpad issue on Y50

It seems like the Windows 8.1 will NOT remember my choice of disabling the Synaptics touchpad.

Everytime after a restart, the touchpad is activated by default.

In previous version of Windows (e.g. Win7), my touchpad is always disabled even after a restart.

This is very annoying and I can't update the stock driver from Synaptics as it doesn't recognize the touchpad on Y50.

Lenovo, please release a bug fix!

Hi shangyongc,


Welcome tot he community,


Have you tried uninstalling the synaptics driver and restarting your system. Windows should install the driver it thinks is best and it should work fine.
