    The pointing device in question is the touchpad and the left and right clicking buttons on your laptop so it's probably better to go to the manufacturer's site and find the right driver.

    If you want the Synaptics touchpad in that laptop to work properly and make use of all its functions, it needs the driver.

    14.0.3 is the current driver version for that touchpad. The install process will overwrite and replace whatever older version is present.
