HP Pavilion - 15-ab045sa: a few gestures of precision Touchpad not working not


I'm new to the forum, so I hope I posted in the right place.

My product: HP Pavilion Notebook - 15-ab045sa (ENERGY STAR)

I have all the gestures of touchpad usual work (three stroke of finger etc).  However, the recent to THE introduced a new gesture to switch virtual desktops. I was really looking forward to this update, but this gesture does not work! I tried to reinstall the update with erase everything and it still does not work!

I don't understand why it does not work as I have a touchpad of accuracy and all other gestures of work except this new! Also even if some gestures of work (for example three finger swipe), I don't think that win 10 recognizes the touchpad of precision like under settings of the mouse and Trackpad, what it does not say that I have a touchpad of precision and so does me no options to change what are the gestures, as it should.

I have the Synaptics TouchPad of SMBus driver (21/07/2016).

Would really appreciate your help as I was really looking forward to the new gesture switch virtual desktops.

Thank you.


Just got an update via windows update Synaptics update to version - it finally allowed me to have the film 4 finger to switch virtual desktops!

    My new HP Pavilion 2 2 - i - 1 10 x - n080no could not upgrade to win 8.1 to win 10 and it does not allow me to upgrade by booting from a usb key or cd.

    I disabled it secured from the bios boot and I put a usb boot first in the list, but he continues to be ignored.

    I even tried with a 64-bit (l) ubuntu cd and usb, but neither their startup.

    Y at - it * all * way to get this tablet to boot from a usb device?

    Grateful for any suggestions.

    OH ok. Yes, I use Microsoft Media creation tool.

    The bios will recognize without problem.

    Don't forget to upgrade, install not the device.

    You can clean install later, after the initial upgrade has been registered in the database of Microsoft.

    If the Windows 8.1 will again open, run the tool of creation of media from the desktop of 8.1.

    BUT, first run the Windows Disk Cleanup tool and then run the tool.

    IF Windows is not running, then you need to use the USB method.

  • K4 Note Marshmallow Launcher gesture Nova, Fingerprint unlock not working not

    First of all congratulations to Lenovo/motorcycle Team for this wonderful close generation motorcycle of Marshmallow for Lenovo K4 Note.

    Most of the stuff is perfect. Works very well. However I face a problem of unlocking using the fingerprint sensor.

    If I lock the phone by using the physical locking then unlocking with fingerprint sensor works like a charm. Actually, now it's faster than the 5.1. However if I unlock it using the gesture of launcher Nova (say double tab on the lock screen), wonder fingerprints unlocking the pin code. However even with Nova gesture of fingerprint locking unlocking worked without any problem in lollipop 5.1.

    Am I missing something? Is this related to the build MM of K4 remark or question of launcher Nova?

    Can someone shed some light?


    The application above options is just a workaround and that too in paid version solution. So as possible. I also got a confirmation of the Launcher Nova developer phones without root cannot tap double locking and FPS unlock.

    K4 note got another built-in feature of the wide Touch. This works with FPS without problems. So now bye bye to type the gesture of the Launcher Nova locking and welcome broad touch functionality that works in a similar way and is working with FPS.

    Settings-> office-> Touch wide to allow the shortcut to "lock screen" to lock the screen. It also supports unlocking of FPS. Works very well.

    It is the Mashmallow solution if you want to use the double tap gesture lock and FPS to unlock.

    Or do I have to pay a monthly subscription to convert pdf to word, use pdf reader etc.?

    You may or may not be able to install Acrobat 7.0 on modern operating systems.

    Also, you can no longer activate Acrobat 7.0 with your original serial number; You must download the installer and get a special serial number of this website https://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/policy-pricing/creative-suite-2-activation-end-life.ht ml

  • Pavilion Elite HPE 450 t PC: desktop computer will not be updated for windows 7 64, Microsoft tried without success.

    I have a PC Pavilion Elite HPE 450 t, and a few months ago he ceased to accept automatic updates from Microsoft downloads.

    I tried to use the tools that Microsoft has nothing helped.

    Some time after, my Norton Security software security suite failed and wouldn't charge.  Norton failed to find a solution.  I guess it must do something with the heavy backlog of unloaded updates.

    ? Is it possible to load windows 10 on win 7?

    I got my PC tested for viruses, root kits and it is clean, but updates are still not loading.

    Honestly, I'd appreciate any help that you folk can provide.  Thanks in advance

    Hi there @LROSZKOW,

    I hope you find your experience of positive Support Forum! It's a good place to find the help you need, other users, the HP experts and other members of the support staff. I understand that you have had problems with the updates of Windows and want to know if you can upgrade to Windows 10. I'm happy to help you with this.

    Reading the questions you have described in your current system that you cannot upgrade to Windows 10, using the normal method of free upgrade. Your system should have the option available from a previous update of Windows, as the free update is delivered via Windows update. If you have a Windows 7 or 8.1 product key, then you could do a clean install of Windows 10 and use this key to activate your Windows 10 free documents. Of course, you want to first make a backup of your data.

    Another option would be to try to load the original image from the desktop computer, and then try to update again by using Windows Update. This assumes you have a working recovery partition or recovery media. Computers HP - performing a recovery of system HP (Windows 7)  But to protect your data, you want to make a first backup as I mentioned.

    Please let me know if it works for you and if it does not solve your problem, please mark this message as a solution. Bravo would be appreciated as well.
