I recently had my y50 sent to Lenovo to repair a faulty USB port. When the laptop returned, the hardware issue was resolved and Lenovo had also reflashed Windows. However, there was a new problem.
I can't modify any settings in the synaptics control panel! Registry changes also appear to have no effect on these settings as well (unless there is a registry data value which corresponds to enabling and disabling the whole control panel).
I have uninstalled and reinstalled the driver numerous times (the Win8.1 x64 version provided on the Lenovo website) to no avail.
I've attached some screenshots of device manager, control panel, mouse settings, and the synpatics control panel.
Anyone know the issue? I know for sure that before I sent the kaptop to Lenovo, it had a different control panel installed. If someone has a copy of the older driver for this laptop, send it my way.
