    Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook Blows on 8, Trackpad Issues


    Hey all,

    Just thought I would toss it out there. I have finally got all device drivers loaded for the Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook. I wanted to thank the crew here for the help on the driver package for the display driver (Intel 3000 Driver).

    Just some crazy stuff like the auto dimmer on the screen was always lowering the screen display to its lowest level. To fix this I disabled it in the advanced settings in the power management area of the control panel.

    I just wanted to get peoples thoughts though. The mouse driver while loaded including tray icon is only partially working. The multi gestures don't work at all, the side scroll doesn't work and it makes the unit much less functional.

    Am I stuck waiting for a new driver or is there anything that might be able to be tweaked to get it working better? It is Cypress Trackpad (ACPI\VEN_DLL&DEV_052E) running driver 2.3.6.25.

    Hi EricW,
    I have found two newer drivers than your current one, give them a try and see whether it solves the problem for you:
