In the previous guide on how to install Windows 10, I described two methods you could use depending on which installation media you have; CD or Flash drive.
One common issue you could encounter after upgrading to Windows 10 is driver related issues. I for example initially had problems with Bluetooth, Touchpad, Graphics and Sound. In this brief guide, I’ll be focusing on Touchpad problems.
If your Laptop’s touchpad was working fine before the upgrade to Windows 10 then its nothing to panic about. Its unlikely to be a hardware issue so don’t go unscrewing (and possibly ruining) your PC .
How to fix Touchpad not working after upgrading to Windows 10
Get an external mouse, you’ll be needing one for the next couple of minutes
Ensure touchpad is enabled; Press the Windows button > Select Settings > Devices > Mouse & Touchpad
Visit your Laptop PC manufacturer’s website
Under the driver downloads section, you are to download Synaptics Touchpad driver for Windows 10
If you can’t find Synaptics Touch driver for Windows 10, go with that for Windows 8.1 or 8.0. Windows 7 should be your last resort
After downloading the Synaptics Touch driver .exe file, double click it and follow the installation Wizard
