have emachines 620 running vista, synaptics touchpad stopped working after last windows update.
contacted emachines/gateway. instructed to use device manager to remove and than reinstall.
was also given an updated driver.
my problem is when removing mouse and driver to complete removal i must reboot. During reboot system automaticly reinstalls. i have tried not rebooting, but get error message that cannot install untill changes take effect.
also tried updat driver, error message also.
Is there a way to shut off the automatic "new hardware found" during startup. Also tried safe boot.
Brand new machine 3 weeks old, gateway wants me to return it to repair depot, figured I'd try here first.
