2 options to update Synaptics drivers

Both methods below work in Windows 10, 8.1, and 7. You may not have to try both; just browse through the list and take your pick:

  1. Update my Synaptics drivers manually
  2. Update my Synaptics drivers automatically (Recommended)

Method 1: Update my Synaptics drivers manually

Warning: Downloading the wrong driver or installing it incorrectly can compromise your laptop’s stability and even cause the whole system to crash. So please proceed at your own peril.  If you’re not comfortable playing around with drivers, or worrying about any risks in the process, jump to Method 2.

To manually update your Synaptics drivers:

First you might need to head to your laptop’s manufacturer’s official website(i.e. the OEM website,like Dell, ASUS etc.) and search the drivers available for your product model. Then be sure to ONLY choose the driver package corresponding with your specific flavor of Windows version and then download & install it manually.

Finally, restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

Method 2: Update my Synaptics drivers automatically (Recommended)

If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update your Killer network driver manually, you can do it automatically with 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 update your drivers automatically with either the FREE or the Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes just 2 clicks:

  1. Download and install Driver Easy.
  2. Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers. 
  3. You can upgrade to the Pro version and click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of ALL the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system. 

    You can also click Update to do it for free if you like, but it’s partly manual.

  4. Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.
