The Driver is installed in device manager as is installed and worked as far as clicking tapping and movements.  The problem i have is there is no option to setup the scrolling which is very annoying as i use it all of the time, as well as the tapping feature enable/disable functions.  The problem i am sure is that it shows up as standard pointing device on the second section, i am not sure what files i need to modify or replace to get that to use the driver i have, i have forced the toucphad device on the main driver and it didn't help as well as use the normal touchpad driver for the mouse itself. I would prefer not to reload but i will if I have to. I also checked the bios.
