ASUS Smart Gesture Not Working [SOLVED]

Jonny Lin, in Others Tags: ASUS

Many ASUS laptop users have reported that the ASUS Smart Gesture on their computer has stopped working. This usually happens when they have upgraded from a previous version of Windows.

This is an annoying issue. You cannot use those convenient gestures to control the touchpad of your laptop. And you may be trying anxiously to find a solution to this problem.

But don’t worry! It is still possible for you to get it back to work. Here are three tricks you could try to fix your ASUS Smart Gesture not working issue:

1) Reset your ASUS Smart Gesture

2) Update your touchpad driver

3) Reinstall your ASUS Smart Gesture with the latest version

1) Reset your ASUS Smart Gesture

Perhaps your ASUS Smart Gesture not working issue results from incorrect settings, and you can fix them by resetting the program. To do so:

1. Press Win key and R key on your keyboard at the same time. Then type “control” and press Enter.

2. In Control Panel, select Large icons from the View by drop down menu.

3. Select ASUS Smart Gesture.

4. Hit the Set all to default button.

5. Restart your computer and see if this fixes your problem.

2) Update your touchpad driver

Your ASUS Smart Gesture may stop working if you are using a wrong or outdated driver. You should update your touchpad driver to see if this fixes the issue. One easy and reliable method to update the driver is to use Driver Easy.

Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing.

You can download and install your drivers by using either Free or Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes only 2 clicks (and you get full support and a 30-day money back guarantee):

1) Download and Install Driver Easy.

2) Run Driver Easy and hit the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.

3) Click on the Update button next to the touchpad to download the latest and correct driver for it. You can also hit the Update All button at the bottom right to automatically update all outdated or missing drivers on your computer (this requires the Pro version — you will be prompted to upgrade when you click on Update All).



3) Reinstall your ASUS Smart Gesture with the latest version

The program you use may be incompatible with your operating system. You should reinstall this program with its latest version. To do so:

1. Press Win key and R key at the same time. Then type “control” and press Enter.

2. In Control Panel, select Large icons from the View by drop down menu.

3. Select Programs and Features.

4. Right-click on ASUS Smart Gesture and select Uninstall.

5. Go to ASUS official website search your laptop model and download its latest version of Smart Gesture. Then install the program you have downloaded.

6. Restart your computer. If this method works for you, you will be able to use the Smart Gesture again.
