I installed Windows 7 on my laptop, and let it use the default drivers in most cases. The downside is that I lost the scroll functionality on my touchpad, which I can't see to get back any other way than using the Synaptics software.

The drivers I have on CD are quite old, but the ones from the Synaptics website seem to work fine (plus there are 32 bit and 64 bit editions):

I have installed the vista driver on my Acer Aspire one D150 netbook and it slows the pointer down to a speed equal to the generic ps/2 driver's slowest setting. Any ideas?

I have the same model of laptop, and used the Dell Vista drivers to install the touchpad software successfully.

Hi there
I went to this link, installed it from my downloads window in Mozilla, and it works great.
It solved my scrolling problems immediately.
Also, don't forget to go to 'mouse' in your control panel and to enable your scrolling.
The first link is the download link, and the second link will take you to Synaptics site. There you click on the 32 bit or the 64 bit link, download it and install it by double clicking on the download link in Mozilla.
Happy scrolling!
Best Wishes
Jahde

i installed win7 on a aspire 5515, acer doesnt offer drivers for this model, i used the emachines e620 drivers. but for touch pad, i have a wireless mouse, microsoft wireless notebook optical 4000, the driver now controls touch pad and arrow keys. i use same driver for my logitech m705 mouse.
you need to see if the manufacture of your computer offers win7 for your model, if they do download driver, if not check to see if they have other brands thats similar to yours and down load the driver.
acer is also emachines, gateway, and hp(hewlett packard)
