Restart the PC, and try again to see if it may then.
If not, then you might check at your Qosmio laptop's driver download page at Toshiba to see what touchpad driver version they have available.
Hope this helps,
Tried that Shawn.
Eventually installed old win7 drivers & it's now recognised as touchpad but no settings available.
Hey, Brink -- Let me tag along here because I've got similar problems -- that is, pretty severely but only occasionally and unpredictably malfunctioning Synaptics trackpad/mouse-arrow on my brand new Acer. The live-chat feller at the Acer support site suggested that I entirely disable the tap-to-click function on the trackpad; and yeah, I can do that, but I really like tap-to-click, and I've gotten accustomed to using tap-to-click on a number of other PCs. Anyway, is it your considered, experienced opinion that if I tried installing more recent trackpad drivers from Synaptics -- the newest drivers are tagged with a slightly higher number, and are dated just a few months more recent than my current drivers -- and even though Acer's "Live Update" makes no such suggestion -- it would be safe, would at least do no harm?
Hello Win8Geezer, and welcome to Eight Forums.
Sure it'll be fine. If the new drivers do not work the way you wanted, then you could always just uninstall them, and reinstall the one from Acer.
How can disable touch pad in this version?
In previous version by double tap on left upper corner can disable or enable touch-pad.
I frequently used this for typing.
