    Its a "beta" version, so its lightweight. If you want Scrybe, just install 15.2.7 first and then install 15.2.11. This driver seems to have fixed any issue I had with pressing down on the sides of the touchpad.

    I don't know why you use tap zone, it tends to go wack when you tap to double click.

    I see that we do not have any updates yet . I have been gone for a couple weeks and I thought the Bios would be out . Hmm

    As to my Notebook I still can not type normally as my key presses get behind and I am still having missed key strokes on double key presses .
    With some software it is madding trying to type .
    I am beginning to think that there is a hardware issue that cannot be overcome with software , and that is why we are still waiting for a fix.
    I know that most of the time my Notebook is unusable in the sense that you can not work with all the errors that come up .

    I am going to wait till the next Bios update and see what happens before I make anymore moves .

    After 2 and half days my machine is still fine. I have not had a single incident with the touchpad since inserting the wedge support to the left of the touchpad. I am now quite confident that the tp failures on my machine were due mostly to the flexing of the tp, which is why my machine would fail quite often after using the keyboard. The weight of my left palm on the palm rest was enough to flex the tp which caused it to stop working. I still don't understand why the flexing would stop it or have a lingering affect but inserting the wedge and stopping the flex has fixed my machine.

    Thats very interesting, I am looking forward to seeing pictures of your mod. I hope a software fix is possible rather than hardware, as I can't see ASUS wanting to acknowledge that it is hardware. Perhaps it is a case of software exacerbating a hardware glitch?

    The ASUS party-line is that it's software, which will avoid RMAs and is thus not surprising.
