1. Installing the Synaptics TouchPad Driver
First, make sure that your Synaptics TouchPad is connected
to your system (a driver will be installed for each currently
If you have received your driver distribution in the form of a
self-extracting archive, then you must first extract the installation
files from the archive. Execute the self-extracting archive file
by double-clicking on it from Explorer, running it from the Start/Run
dialog, or running it from a DOS box command prompt.
Next, run the Setup.exe program, which automatically installs the
driver on your computer. You can run this program either from a DOS box
by going to the directory that contains the driver files and typing "setup",
or using Start/Run and running setup (e.g. if the driver files are on a
floppy disk in the A: drive, you would type "A:\setup"), or by exploring
the directory containing the driver files and double clicking on the
If the driver has been installed correctly, after you have restarted
Windows you should see the TouchPad Icon in your task bar next to the
clock. Also, a dialog box entitled "Information about your TouchPad"
will pop up. You can prevent this dialog box from coming up in the
future by checking the "Stop showing me this message" checkbox.
For help on using the advanced features of your Synaptics TouchPad,
choose "Tell me more..." from the "Information about your TouchPad"
dialog box, or double-click on the TouchPad Icon in your task bar,
and click on the "Help" button.

2. Personal Computer and Windows 95 Configuration Issues
The new, Windows 95 preferred method for viewing your system's hardware
configuration is in the Device Manager. The Device Manager can be
accessed from the Control Panel-->System page.
The Control Panel offers a set of options for configuring your Windows
95 computer. To access it, click on the Start button, then click on
Settings, and then click on Control Panel. Once the Control panel is up,
double click on the System icon in the Control Panel, and then click on
the Device Manager TAB in the resulting window.
This page contains individual device configurations for each hardware
device associated with your computer. Individual items may be viewed by
clicking the "+" symbols beside the device type names. For example, to
view the TouchPad or Mouse configurations, click on the "+" symbol
beside the word Mouse. This will show a list (probably just 1 item for
typical machines), of available device configurations for pointing
devices. E.g., if a machine has both a Serial TouchPad and a PS/2 mouse
attached (or thinks that it does), there would be 2 entries under
