I just got a new Windows 8 máy tính xách tay. So far the biggest problem is the hideous Elan-powered touchpad. It has a crazily-fast và sensitive scroll tốc độ, and has the scroll direction inverted. The controls to modify these settings are greyed out under the Elan panel in control panel > mouse, for some reason.

I can uninstall it via device manager or BIOS, but what will happen if I do? Will Windows 8 revert to some sort of mặc định, no-frills touchpad software? Presumably at the very least I"ll thảm bại the ability lớn vày anything with the touchpad except move the cursor & cliông xã.


Likely, yes, Windows will revert khổng lồ some simple, basic functions. However, it may completely disable your trackpad, depending on whether the Windows mặc định driver supports your trackpad or not. You should have sầu a USB mouse handy in case this happens.

It"s possible that your trackpad driver may need to be re-installed in order to provide access to the settings you"re looking for.
