I have a favor to ask of all G46VW owners. I want to purchase a new keyboard/trackpad top cover because I think it will solve my trackpad issues. It is beyond bad, the trackpad is laggy, jumpy, has super low resolution and trying to click on small boxes is increasingly annoying. Installing the drivers that came directly from Asus's site makes things ten times worse so I have let windows use the built in driver just so I can actually use the trackpad.

Could sometime take a video of them using their track pad and dragging around a window. Then making small movements in any direction so I can see how it reacts? I will be making a video shortly so everyone can see. It sucks and this kills the entire "laptop" functionality for me...

Thanks everyone! I'm on a mission to solve this..

EDIT: After a lot of research into trackpads I have found a solution that seems to greatly reduce the lag and overall bad resolution of the trackpad.. I taped a piece of tin foil over the bottom of where the PCB is showing underneath the trackpad. I can't say it's solved but it's light years better. There is something that is near the trackpad that is interfering with it. I saw no metal foil tape anywhere near the trackpad where as my W530/T420 and my 11 inch laptop all had some sort of foil tape around the entire PCB of the trackpad (and they all have perfectly working ones)

So we meet again! =)
Hi buddy. Long time since I heard from you @ T|I.
Could you post some pictures or illustrations how you solved the laggy touchpad problem?
TBH the touchpad is insanely bad.

By the way: Liquid metal really decreased my temps compared to regular paste, maybe 7-10c.
