Gateway Tablet Synaptics Touchpad Not Working
Posted on 2006-11-02
I have been running Vista RC2 for a while now on my tablet and it has been fine. However, yesterday I was using my usb mouse as I usually do when home and while I was typing and using the touchpad simultaneously, it stopped working all of a sudden. I have tried everything to fix it. I have reinstalled the drivers, disabled the device, uninstalled the device, used system restore, set BIOS setting back to defaults, run a linux boot disk to see if it works (it didn't) and now I'm desperate to find a solution. I read somewhere that someone who had the same problem noticed that a new "HID Compliant Device" had appeared in the device manage under "mice and other pointing devices ." This device has a location "on FinePoint Innovations Tablet." When showing Hidden Devices another device under mice and other pointing devices called "synaptics PS/2 Port Touchpad" with the error "This device cannot start (code 10)." I have seen code 24 as well... I have been trying so many different things but there may be something I haven't tried. The tablet pen still works if that matters. Thanks for your help.
