Synaptics driver suddenly asking to uninstall

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I am having Windows 8 PC, 64bit with 4GB of RAM. I recently got this error asking me to uninstall the Synaptics driver which I have no idea. I am sure that I had this Synaptics Touchpad driver installed in my laptop. After using for some time, I get this error. I tried to uninstall and install the driver manually, but it still won’t like it. I went on to the laptop website and downloaded the drivers twice and tried to reinstall but no joy. Please help. Thanks.

Synaptics Pointing Device – Unable to connect to the Synaptics Pointing Device Driver. – If you have installed another PS/2 Pointing Device Driver please uninstall the Synaptics driver by clicking on the Yes button. You then need to reinstall your pointing device driver for your external device again. – Do you want to uninstall the Synaptics driver now?
