Have a Aspire TimelineX 5830TG-6642 and, overall, am very pleased with it. However, the Elan pointing device is driving me crazy: too sensitive, jumps around randomly (both the cursor and scrolling position), and overall takes much more effort to use than does my other laptops that use Synapatics.
Is there a way to replace Elan with Synaptics or something similar? I just need basic functions: scroll and tap. Do not want nor need to rotate, zoom, etc. from the pad. (In the market for a Windows 8 touch screen laptop and, though Acer has some nice offerings, will pass and go with Lenovo or Asus if I can't solve this problem.)
(I believe I have tried most custom settings, just have not been able to achieve my goal of just the most basic of functions.)
