Touchpad cursor became laggy after updating driver
I have Acer Aspire 5732Z laptop. Yesterday I’ve done a fresh Windows 7 64-bits installation on the laptop and everything was running fine and smoothly. But I wanted to update all the possible drivers to make everything more stable.
But when the turn came for the touchpad driver, I got the driver from https://www.acer.com/ac/en/ID/content/su...; … firstly I tried the “Synaptics” driver which made my cursor very laggy after installing it.
So I decided to roll back to the old driver but the mouse is still a bit laggy and there is like a very very simple trails while moving the mouse. You can see the GIF here: https://i.vgy.me/J8rkkv.gif - the GIF might be showing it as normal mouse movement, but it is not :/
My cursor is not as fast as before.. I’ve tried to install the driver by “ALPS” again from the same URL here https://www.acer.com/ac/en/ID/content/su...; but it didn’t help too.
I’ve tried to re-install the “Synaptics” driver then uninstall it from Control Panel but it didn’t help either. I don’t know what did the Synaptics installer change.
The device manager is showing the same driver version that was before deciding to update the touchpad driver. My pointer speed & display settings in Control Panel didn’t change and they are currently set as the same settings when the cursor was working fine.
EDIT: I’ve plugged in a normal mouse and it doesn’t have the problem, I tried to enable the touchpad again and the problem is still there. So the touchpad driver is the problem.
