Elantech Touchpad Not Working Properly and Flashing Loading Circle

1545 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  spunk.funk
Hi guys, I hope someone can help me with this:

So I recently upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 and I noticed a few issues with the touchpad on my laptop.

1: two finger scrolling no longer works. Now I have to drag one finger on the right edge of the touchpad up and down in order to scroll vertically.

2: I've also noticed the blue loading circle beside the pointer keeps flashing roughly once per second whenever i leave it alone, even if I am not running any programs. I can leave it on the desktop and the blue circle still keeps flashing.

It appears Win 10 installed a new driver called ELAN Input Device. That's what it says when I go to the device manager.

However, when I go to the settings menu>devices>mouse and touchpad>additional mouse options to the mouse properties, there is no way to configure the gestures.

I found out that I have to go to the Elantech folder in program files and run the ETDAniConf application and that brings up the gesture customization menu. However, when I run the program the option for two finger scrolling, pinch zoom, etc. are checked on, as is the default. There is no option for one finger right side scrolling like I mentioned earlier. And, as I said, the blue circle keeps flashing when idle.

My laptop is a MSI GT60 running Windows 10 upgraded from 8.1 which was updated from 8.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. To sum up, ELAN is messing up my touchpad and the pointer loading circle keeps flashing when idle. Thanks for reading.

Go to Start/Search and type devmgmt.msc, right click the devmgmt results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Device Manager are there any devices with yellow flags? If so, these devices need drivers.
If there are yellow flags or not, go to the MSI download page for your model Workstation - The best laptop for CAD & 3D modeling and Choose Windows 7 (the latest OS available for your model). And choose your version of Windows (eg) 32 bit or 64 bit.
Download the Chipset, and Touchpad driver for your modeland any other drivers you need from the Device Manager. Save them to your desktop or wherever do not run them yet. Right click the driver downloads/Properties/Compatibility tab. Run the drivers in Windows 7 compatibility mode.
