I was asked by a friend to help installing windows 10 in an acer E3-111-290X that was previously running windows 7, but after installing windows 10 the touchpad stopped working.I've tried several solutions such as synaptics drivers but didn't work. Anyone with an answer or knowing a better place to get the solution for the problem, help please!

    $\begingroup$ This question is blatantly off-topic on CS.SE. Please review the tour, as well as what's on-topic and off-topic here. I'm going to flag to move this to a more topical SE site. $\endgroup$ – Jules Dec 28 '16 at 19:29
  • $\begingroup$ This is grossly off-topic here. This site is about computer science, please read the full site name before posting and check the tour and help center if you have any doubts. Furthermore the question is not answerable as is, you would need to give more information about what stopped working (does Windows still see a peripheral or not, etc.) and say what “several solutions” you tried. $\endgroup$ – Gilles 'SO- stop being evil' Dec 29 '16 at 19:43

According to this link, you may have more luck installing the Synaptics driver from the Acer website in compatibility mode.
