When I tried to update the driver in the Device Manager section of the laptop, I got an error message that said
"Windows encountered a problem installing the drivers for your device


Windows found drivers for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install them

Synaptic PS/2 Port TouchPad

The system cannot find the file specified.


If you know the manufacturer of your device, you can visit their website and check the support section for drivers."


I am so confused on what to do! I've tried finding the drivers online, but every single time I've tried to find the drivers, they never install or are found! What do I do?driver error.JPG driver error 2.JPG driver error 3.JPG driver error.JPG driver error 2.JPG driver error 3.JPG

You appear to have a HP laptop.
What is the exact model number(M/N) and product number(P/N) and serial number(S/N) on it?

According to that serial number, you have THIS HP 15-f272wm Notebook PC which was purchased in November 2016 and came with Windows 10 Home 64-bit.

HERE is the most current Windows 10 64-bit driver(19.3.31.31) for its Synaptics touchpad.

I attempted to install the driver, and i got yet another error message. I did manage to screen capture both of the error messages that I received. It appears as if it is having trouble reading the driver.

How exactly are you trying to install that sp81891.exe driver file?

All you have to do is double-click it to start the install process, then follow the instructions as they appear.
