    Hysteresis (Backlash) Excessive on Synaptics Touchpads

    I have a 2018 model Lenovo Y530 Laptop. There is quite a lot of hysteresis on the touchpad (3 to 5mm). Has anyone experienced this and resolved the issue? I tried installing a new driver, but it didn't solve the problem. Not sure if firmware has to be changed too?
