Sep 17, 2015 SONY VAIO SVZ problem with Synaptics Touchpad driver. SOLVED Discussion in 'Drivers' started by Aris. Problems with Windows 10 Upgraded Sony Vaio.
It was only some days ago, and and after a long wait that finally SONY published their compatibility results for WIN 10. For my SVZ1311C5E they specifically note that ‘’Touchpad may stop responding after PC resumes from sleep or hibernation mode.’’ Have tried the latest Synaptics WIN 10 PS/2 and SMBus devices v188.8.131.52, but it does not fix the problem. Always a Windows fan, I now love WIN 10, but it’s very annoying and mostly unproductive not to be able to use Sleep and Hibernate modes ANY HOPE of this issue been addressed in the future, either by Microsoft or Synaptics? Thanks guys for the prompt input. For my SVZ1311C5E I found out everything else works OK with WIN 10, so I am happy keeping it like this, except this issue I located a very useful past thread I had overlooked for this issue, here it is: I'm thinking of trying out this solution, i.e.
Disabling the auto driver installation from Windows Update, but the drawback is that it is not specific-selective, at least for now. Another very interesting thread is here that I plan to check, when I find time. OK, as already posted, the PROBLEM is caused because Windows 10 automatically updates to the most recent drivers, because Microsoft thinks this is the way to go. Well, for some laptops where the manufacturers have asked for tailor-made drivers, the result is that some features won’t work. In my SVZ1311C5E Vaio, WIN10 has a ‘New’ Synaptics touchpad driver (19.0.19. Wimax 6150 Driver Windows 10 more. 1 of 2015) which replaced the ‘Old’ custom Synaptics driver my VAIO had, and it freezes.
