  1. Solution for precision settings not showing for MSI Laptop (Apache Pro)


    I have an MSI ge72vr 6rf Apache Pro Laptop and, while all the precision gestures worked, the settings menu only showed sensitivity control.

    When looking for a solution, I saw another guy on these forums who never could solve the problem with his GE72VR etc., and the post was locked, so I couldn't help directly.

    By installing Microsoft's precision touch-pad drivers, I got the settings, but lost some gestures. Then by having windows look for a driver update for that device, the functionality returned.

    I followed this guide,


    https://www.windowscentral.com/how-enable-precision-touchpad-drivers


    then right-clicked the start button and clicked "device manager." I found Synaptics Pointing Device under the "mice and other pointing devices" dropdown menu and right clicked and hit "update driver" then "search automatically." It went back to the intended drivers and kept the settings.



    One thing to note is that this caused an extra "device" to show up in the mouse and pointing devices part of the device manager listed as an extra HID-compliant mouse (there were two, one was not really there). I right clicked each and selected "properties" then looked at "location." I disabled the one that said "on Synaptics HID-Compliant Touch pad Device" by location. This might not be necessary but on my other laptop I followed the tutorial for, having two devices listed for the same device prevented the cursor from moving using the trackpad, and it was solved by simply disabling one of them.


    I hope that helps someone! All that trouble to get two-finger scroll reversed. It's not too hard though.

    :)

    Suggestions for an SSD for my MSI GE62VR 7RF Apache Pro ?


    Suggestions for an SSD for my MSI GE62VR 7RF Apache Pro ? Bought an MSI Apache Pro back in February on sale, opted for one without SSD so I could put one of my choosing. My first gaming laptop I've owned, and when I built my PC years ago I wasn't in the market for M.2 SSD's. Any suggestions ?

    MSI Apache Pro GE72VR

    MSI looks to dominate the notebook market with the GE72VR Apache Pro. Offering an Intel i7 6700HQ and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060, it offers some serious gaming performance for the price. Oh, and it includes an SSD and IPS screen, which are certainly appealing.
