TouchPad Driver Support

Synaptics' TouchPad device drivers are customized and supported by notebook manufacturers to meet specific driver requirements for their individual products. To ensure the appropriate driver for your device, always use the driver your specific notebook OEM supports.

Before upgrading to Windows 10, first check with your notebook manufacturer for compatibility, then use your device's Windows update function to ensure you get the correct driver for your hardware.

Installing a generic driver may result in the loss of OEM-customized functionality. We recommend you set a restore point before installing to ensure potential need to roll back to the previous driver.
