Default Trackpad stops working - 12-28-2008, 12:04 AM

So I have Vista all installed and working on my Mini 9, but I'm having an issue with the trackpad. After using it for about 10 or 15 minutes, it just completely stops responding. I'm using the Synaptics driver for Windows XP from Dell's website. Does anyone know how to solve this issue? I'm assuming that uninstalling the Synaptics driver would fix it up, but then I wouldn't have the scrolling feature.

Any ideas?

edit: It appears that installing the driver specifically for Vista from Synaptics' website has solved the problem. I'm not positive yet, but it appears okay.

I had the same issue, until I installed the Vista driver from Synaptics' website. It was pretty annoying, I had to use a wired mouse until I figured that out.
