Hello everyone!

I currently own an MSI GE60 0ND

Specs:
CPU: Intel Core i7-3630QM
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX660M
RAM: 8GB @1600MHz
HDD: HGST 1TB 7200RPM
Keyboard: SteelSeries 103 keys
Touchpad driver: Elantech

It was working well in the past but I just recently noticed that I can't use the touchpad and the keyboard at the same time (e.g. Hold W and move the cursor). This has never happened. I searched around and found other people having the same problem solved just by turning off the Palm Detection feature. However, I have found no such option in my Elantech driver. If you need any more information, just ask me! Please, help me!

Thanks in advance!

Sorry for the late respond! I can call MSI but I'd rather not for various reasons. I'm am fairly certain it is just a software issue as this has only happened since that time when I re-installed Windows and all of the drivers (including Elantech touchpad's). Are there any solutions?

Edit: Found the solution! I just installed an older version of the driver and it works a treat!
Thank you, anyway!
