Synaptics Touchpad Enhancements stops working

\015 I brought my Acer Aspire 5920 laptop a couple of months ago and I have a really annoying problem where a window pops up saying 'Synaptics Touchpad Enhancements have stopped working'. It didnt used to happen that often but it happens regularly now (like every time I use my laptop). I lose my scrolling function on the touchpad and the scroll button below the toupad stops working. The 'play'/ 'stop'/ 'rewind'/ forward' touch-buttons stop working too. Everything works fine when I reboot but I'd prefer using another way to fix my problem-so if anyone has any suggestions, please help!\015\012\015\012I get the same message, on mine occasionaly and the scroll edges stop working. \302\240I have read that it is somehow linked to windows live messenger.\015

Answers :

I had this problem on my Dell Inspiron 1318, so I went on to their support centre and through the Chat to a technical advisor tool, they uninstalled and reinstalled the driver which controls the touchpad and now the problem is completely gone. I suggest you contact Acer or the customer service of the company that you bought your laptop from and ask them to do something similar. I didn't even need to send my laptop back, Dell were able to take control of my laptop remotely and it only took about an hour in total. Hopefully your provider will be able to offer a similar service.

You may even be able to do this yourself if you can figure out which touchpad driver you need and look on the Acer/laptop maker website support and look at updates for drivers or downloads or something similar. Personally I found using the company's expertise much easier.
