Feb 15, 2017 Having touchpad issues in Windows 10? Then look for a tab labeled ELAN or Device. You may need to uninstall your old touchpad driver (Device. Apple Trackpad Driver For Windows 10 here.
Windows 10 Technical Preview has screwed with almost all laptop touchpads as I can note from personal experience and forum posts. I have installed the preview on a Lenovo Ideapad Y510P with an Elan touchpad, and all my custom settings in Windows 8.1 had gone [ I upgraded ]. I have tried reinstalling the drivers for Windows 8, but the installation is 'unsuccessful' as the installer says that the drivers are already installed, but my Device Manager shows a PS/2 compliant input device as the only 'mouse'. What should I do?
Hi Shyam, Thank you for your interest in Windows 10 Technical Preview. This issue might occur due to incompatible or outdated drivers and missing updates. I can understand that it must be difficult for you when things are not working as it should. Sorry to know that you are facing this issue.
Let us follow these methods and check if this helps. I would suggest you to completely uninstall the touchpad driver and reinstall it. Follow these steps. • Press “Windows key + X” and click on “Device Manager”. • In the list of devices, you should see the touchpad drivers. • Right click on the device and then select 'Uninstall'. • In the uninstall dialog, make sure you select the option to delete the driver package from the system.
This causes the driver package installed earlier to be deleted. • In the Action menu of Device manager, select “ Scan for Hardware changes” option. This will cause the device driver to be reinstalled.
Once the driver is installed, close all windows and restart the computer. Further, if there no updated drivers available on the computer manufacturer’s website, then download the latest drivers and try installing it in Windows 8 compatibility mode. Compatibility mode runs the program using settings from a previous version of Windows. Follow these steps to install the drivers in compatibility mode and check if that helps. Download the driver from the manufacturer’s website. Right-click on the driver setup file and click on ‘properties’.
