    Need drivers for laptop touchpad

    hello friends,

    I am facing problem to work with my laptop's touchpad. It was working fine and smoothly till last week. These days, it really takes hard to move the cursor on the screen. I think the drivers may have affected. Can anybody help me providing the drivers for working laptop's touchpad ?

    thank you...

    Instead of getting new drivers, you can simply re-install the driver you are already having....for this :

    • Right-click My Computer
    • Select Properties - A small window will open up
    • Click on the Hardware tab >> Device Manager
    • You will see the list of all the hardware devices that are installed in your computer.
    • Scroll down to Mice and other pointing devices. Click on that.
    • You will see Synaptics PS/2 Port Touchpad, place the cursor there and right click
    • Click on Update Driver
    • In the Hardware update wizard, click on the last selection - NO not this time and Next
    • Place the Compaq Utilities disk in the CD-ROM and click next to select automatically
