I recently re-installed windows 8.1 x64 on my Asus UX305FA laptop. It has an ELAN touchpad, I know for a fact it is not synaptic, nor works with those drivers, and to work correctly, requires ASUS smart gesture, as far as I know. During a previous re-install, I managed to get this to work by disabling driver signing enforcement, but somehow, the gestures would constantly reset on reboot, never really found a solution to this (assuming I get this far, I'd like to hear suggestions, I'm thinking I need to freeze some registry entries, but using a scanner, I found 14k entries were changed, related to ELAN). But, now the issue, is that it is showing up as 'microsoft ps/2 mouse' in device manager. I've booted with driver signing check disabled, and manually selected the windows 8.1 x64 drivers, and at the end of the process, I get 'access denied'. I'm an administrator, and I've tried to run device manager in administration mode as well, with the same results. Now, while I'm in this broken driver state, the touchpad works, but I'm unable to do what I most care about, disable tap to select, and allow for disabling the touchpad visa fn+f9. and now, once per day, the mouse will just start moving left at a consistent rate.
What is going on?
I've only used drivers from ASUS's website for this laptop, and it seems they are broken. For the touchpad, I'm trying to install Touchpad_Elantech_Win81_64_VER115162 I've tried to run ./setup.exe, ./x64/setup.exe, ./Disable3Fun.exe, ./install.bat, ./postpatch.bat all while in driver signing enforcement disabled mode. As noted in the installation notes, I have already installed and reinstalled the ATK package Version V1.0.0050 prior to installation. Setup files giving the error that they dont support the current touchpad, as, of course, drivers are not installed for it.
