I have a compaq presario v2000 laptop with a synaptics touchpad v5.10 pointing device. I use windows XP pro. I just recently had an new hard drive installed and since I got my computer back from best buy, I have been having problems with the touchpad. It seems my settings are not being saved when I shutdown the computer. Upon booting up the computer I have to go into control panel, click on the mouse setting and manually put in the settings. I do this by clicking on Device Settings then I have to click reset devices.
Also, after I have reset the touchpad settings there is a synaptics icon on the task bar in the right hand corner. When I reboot the computer the Icon is gone. If I go into task bar and start menu properties, and click hide inactive icons then click customize, synaptics pointing device is under current items and set to always show. When I reboot the computer, the icon is no longer under the current items list.
How do I get my computer to save my changes after shuting down the computer. In the past settings were always saved and the synaptics icon was always on the task bar.
