View Full Version : G53JW Touchpad not being detected in Win8?

I currently use a G53JW notebook. My touchpad was working previously before I took it out in order to get into my laptop and replace the thermal pastes for both the GPU and CPU.

Now I've connected my touchpad back via the ribbon cable along with everything else. It was being detected first but it was quite jumpy.

Now its not recognized at all. Period. I've tried reinstalling the driver, pressing Fn+F9 to see if I didn't disable by mistake, but so far nothing seems to be working.

Is my touchpad permanently dead?

Actually, I got the touchpad to work. But ironically, it works without the driver installed.

I think this could be due to WIndows 8 being installed. Should I try the Synpatics.com for the driver download?
