Looked everywhere for touchpad drivers - Win 8 G74sx

I have been all over this forum, googled for hours, and I still can't find a driver that will enable Windows 8 gestures for my g74sx. I'm using the latest Synaptics driver which supposedly has all the gestures but I have been through all of the settings and haven't found anything that even mentions Windows 8. Where can I get the gesture suite for my laptop? I'd really like to be able to use gestures. Thanks

There probably isn't any, as you've probably surmised by now. Try deleting your old driver and reinstalling it. (win7)

As an aside........ why in the world would you want 8 on a gaming machine?
G74Sx BBK-8 Crucial M4 128GB.SSD/W.D.500Gb.@7200 HHD 16GB. RAM Stock otherwise.

It improved my FPS in a few games and it boots a lot faster. A lot of people hate on it but I like it

I don't think you will be able to do that. New touchpads are designed for Windows 8, but I could be wrong. I just use the Sentelic Win 7 drivers from ASUSTek website. I have looked for Win8 stuff, but cant find anything. I mostly use a mouse anyways cuz I am gaming but Win8 is much nicer then 7.

I also had this issue, I finally got mine to work today. I used the windows 7 drivers from the factory dvd. open windows 8 device manager, find the driver in dvd under E:\Software\Touchpad\Sentelic\PointingDevice\XP32_Win7_32_Win7_64_9.0.2.7. once you choose the driver it will come up with 2 compatible drivers in that directory, pick the second one. Now it took me like 2 or three tries but I did finally get it to work. I couldn't live without the zoom in and zoom out feature of the touchpad. so just keep trying it will work.
