What windows os are you using again and is it 32bit or 64bit ?
Lets try something diffferent:
Download starting... - Softpedia
Next do this:
Extract the Synaptics driver using whatever program you use for that sort of thing. I use Winrar. Go into the WinWDF folder, then the x64 folder. There you're going to see a file named synpd.inf. This is file you're going to look for here in a bit. Now go into your Device Manager and find the touchpad. Right click on it and select 'Update Driver Software...'. Then select 'Browse my computer for driver software'. Then select 'Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer'. Then choose 'Mice and other pointing devices', and hit 'Next'. Now hit the 'Have Disk and choose the file you extracted into the folder.
If all that still does not work, call asus technical support.
