Laptop thinks it's touch screen after update

Q: Laptop thinks it's touch screen after update

Hi, my laptop running 8.1 (came with 8 from factory, updated when 8.1 came out) was updated a couple of days ago, through an official prompt. Since the restart, I am getting a Touch Keyboard icon on the taskbar, Office apps have a touch mode and the pointer keeps disappearing. It never did this before the update. My laptop is NOT touchscreen, it is a series 5 Samsung, I don't mind the new icons to be honest, but can't stand the pointer disappearing and having to reboot every time. Any ideas as to why it happened and how I can fix it/avoid it in the future? TYIA

Preferred Solution: Laptop thinks it's touch screen after update

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Laptop thinks it's touch screen after update

If you go to the bottom left of your screen, right click, then click on system, does it say that there is pen and touch support?

Also go to Device Manager, and check to see if there are any Pen and Touch devices installed.

If you can, post a screen shot of your device manager, Your system Window, and your desktop, that will help me, and others to find out the problem to this issue.

Its strange if Windows has loaded drivers for a device that isn't present, or installed the wrong drivers for a device on your system.

A:Logitech Touch Mouse 400 for a Laptop with no touch screen

Sorry I can't answer your question, but this post piqued my interest. I use the Logitech 620 touch mouse on a Windows 7 box at work. I find a little touchy and has to tweaked. But I haven't tried the 620 on Windows 8. Because I'm always looking for the perfect mouse, I think I might just pick up the 400 tonight and let you know.

Yesterday I was on my laptop and before I shut it down it went into what looked like a different mode. I booted it up this morning and it is still in this mode. It looks like touch screen mode but I do not have a touch screen.  The icons on the task bar are spaced out and there is a back button on the task bar too which is not normally there. When i right click against the task bar, one of the buttons says "Show touch keyboard button".  All of my files are spead out as if to have room for touching if I had a touch screen but I do not. I am finding this very annoying because I cannot get onto my desktop properly and is not in the right mode. Please help!

A:Touch screen not working after update to windows 10

Go to the manufacturer of your system and download the video card drivers for your device. Windows supports touch screens, but it can't do it without the drivers for the touch screen.

A:What use is TOUCH on a laptop screen

I totally agree with you jimbo. I bought a new laptop a few weeks ago and specifically looked for one that did NOT have a touchscreen. I tried out the touchscreen models in the stores and decided touch is not a good interface for larger screens. Works great on my phone and tablet but requires too many exaggerated arm movements on the larger screen. Constantly moving between touching the screen and going back to the keyboard was a pain as well.

Hi timishi, welcome to the Seven Forums.

You can connect a touchscreen display to your laptops external monitor port (VGA) and use it normally. Your laptops display is not a touchscreen.

So today i woke up to find my laptop has a lovely greeny-bluish vertical line through the screen. It comes and it goes when i move the screen so its probably something that can be repaired, right? (Thats question 1 over with).

I have always wanted a touch screen laptop but unfortunately the price was out of my league when looking for a laptop. Now i have a 15.4inch laptop which is fine (apart from the screen problem above^) and i was wondering if i could purchase a new screen which has touch screen capabilities. I really don't know where to look for answer so i thought i'd ask here.

Question One: Could be a prob with the pixels, or the cords are playing up :S

Question Two: You could either get a new laptop with the touch screen, or you could get another screen and plug it into the vga port.

Hi HP Support Greetings from Latin America, we have a HP Pavillion All in one 27-n001la, mainly used by my 5 years old daughter, with all her educative games. Since the upgrade to Windows 10, touch screen is not longer "touch", and we cannot find driver available at the website to solve this issue, which btw, is quite relevant for my daughter as she still doesnt have any control of the mouse. Hope you can help us. Warm Regards from Chile Carolina

hey guys, im thinking of getting a laptop with a touch screen, and i was just wondering if there is any way to also hook it up to a normal pc and use the laptop as a tablet?
 

A:touch screen laptop capabilities

The only "touch screen" laptops I'm aware of are tablet PCs. You don't really hook them up to a "normal" computer. A tablet PC is a computer unto itself. If you just want to use the tablet interface to enter input on another computer, I can't think of a way. The input-related software and drivers have to be running on the tablet itself. You can buy separate tablet hardware for connecting to any type of computer. That would be far more effective and cheaper.

Touch screen began to experience phantom touches in the lower and upper right hand corners of the screen. It interferes with the use of the laptop entirely, preventing me from even turning off the drivers to disable the touch function of the screen. I can only power the laptop off by pressing and holding the power button for several seconds. On reboot, PC behaves normally for up to 1 minute until phantom clicking resumes.  I would have have emailed support directly, but it seems I have no options but to call, which will not resolve my issue.

I aquired an HP TX1305US convertable touch tablet. it seems to have some issues with the touch screen. first of all, half the time, the touch doesn't work. anytime i flip the screen around into tablet mode, the pointer goes haywire and when i go back to laptop mode, the pointer is stuck in the corner, and it can't be moved. also, the application toolbar comes up and the only way to fix it is to reboot. i uninstalled the tablet functionality through windows and reinstalled and the problem is still there. additionally, when the touch screen was working, i had to use alot of pressure. i was kind of expecting it to work like an ipod touch or pda. i'm not sure if this could be hardware or software. the laptop has vista ultimate. i checked ho for all the updates and everything should be current. any ideas of what could be the problem?

This is the second time I've bought a new laptop in 2 weeks, because my old Dell's hard drive crashed.  The first replacement HP wouldn't connect to Wifi and Geek Squad couldn't help from the store, so just traded out for this new one, and that problem is solved.  I'm not sure if my Win 10 is 32 bit or 64 bit, BTW, and don't know if it matters for this issue.  I was on my laptop last night and the keyboard kept acting wonky--slow response and I'd have to hit a key a few times to get the letter/number to type at times.  Also, even though I hit the numlock key, it wouldn't stay locked.  Please tell me this is a quick driver reset.  I really don't want to go back to Best Buy again.

Why because my Samsung ATIV Book plus screen has a slight crack I mean barely noticable but it totally wrecked the touch screen as in it starts to freak out little circles come up on it as if it is being touched and so it seems when I disable the touch screen that does not happen But when I restart the permanently touch my would screen disable laptop like I to computer it I would like to permanently disable my laptop touch screen enables itself Also sometimes it enables itself in the middle of the computer being I would like to permanently disable my laptop touch screen on I have gone to the Human Interface Devices and even clicked on the uninstall of the touch screen but it installs itself right back in minutes I can disable it then if I restart it is enabled again And it can mess with things when it is enabled as it starts flipping out So I want to be able to have it permanently disabled somehow Is that a possibility and it is incredible if it is not I do not want to spend for a new laptop screen The crack is barely visible actually but it is there from top to the bottom of the screen but barely visible Lara

A:I would like to permanently disable my laptop touch screen

Using Autoruns, you have to hunt down all the EXEs, DLLs, etc etc etc that involve the touchscreen operations, and disable said files. I did that for my extra antivirus program [now mummified] -- and it has not come back to life since then.

This is my third time making this thread with no working solution being posted.I purchased a Lenovo Y70 Touch Laptop several months ago. Since a few weeks after its initial use, it has had constant horizontal white lines flickering across the screen at random intervals. I updated the BIOS and it fixed it temporarily. The issue came back once more.I am running Windows 10. I have updated my NVidia and Intel drivers. The BIOS is up to date. I have tried to change the power settings with no luck (the recommended options are not present).Many others seem to have this issue and also have not been helped. I really don't like causing a fuss, but these computers aren't cheap and the lack of help has been very alarming.

I have an HP Pavillion DV9010us. It's a 17 inch widescreen laptop that I am interested in adding touch capabilities to. I've seen several different ways to do so, and it seems adding an overlay strip to the screen (under the from bezel) would be best.

Is this correct, and if not what would you recommend instead?

Are there any manufacturers that are preferable to others?

I'm not sure about video editing, although I do a little bit on an i5 with 6gb, but it is only minor editing

do you need a firewire connection at all for any video you have ?

Hello I've bought a Lenovo Y70-70 Touch laptop.It worked well but the screen started flickering black and showing horizontal lines with rainbow color.I've Updated Video Card drivers for the both cards but it didin't work.Please help me to resolve this issue.My laptop is new I have it from like 2-3 months.

A:Y70-70 Touch Laptop (Lenovo) Screen flickering

Hi there, Mons   -
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
To fix the flickering problem, you should first check the laptop cables for loose connections. So engineer have already diagnosed and confirmed, it was not the lcd cable which is faulty.
 
Another possible reason for the flickering problem in computer screens is interference of magnetic fields from other gadgets. Yes, check if near your laptop, you haven't placed speakers, fluorescent lights, cell phones, radios and any other electrical device. If it is so, you must remove any such interfering electrical gadgets away from your laptop. Studies have proved that cell phones do cause screen flickering.
 
Try and identify when you face this issue, when on Battery power, mains AC adapter or in both scenarios? Is it for a particular power plan or for all power plans? Also check if this happen when you enter BIOS and in Safe Mode too.
 
Please follow the below steps:

If updating video drivers does not help, uninstall and reinstall the Video drivers.
Open Control Panel\All Control Panel It ems\Power Options\Edit Plan Settings and restore the default power plan settings by clicking on Restore default settings for this plan. Do this for all your Power Plans.
Change the refresh rate and see if that helps.

Update us how it goes.

The device manager does not even list a touch-device under human interface devices, and the settings app reports that Pen & Touch is unavailable.

First do a Power Drain 
     (If the battery is removable)
            Remove AC and Battery and hold the power button down for 15 sec.
               Turn the computer back on and see if the Touch capability is now detected under System Properties,
                  If not
         I suggest you contact Lenovo Technical Team about the Issue as this may be a device detection issue.

Hi Magnutus, welcome to the forums.
 
Please check if you Lenovo S210 is on warranty under with this tool.
After that you can open a ticket with Lenovo for the screen to be fixed, if it is not under warranty it will have a cost.
 
If you are the guys that like to fix it yourself (and it is not under warranty) I can recommend you to check the support site for your model, read the Hardware Maintenance Manual (on the documents area) and check how the machine is organized on the inside. On the parts lookup page you can find the parts number so you can find a replacements for the component that is giving you issues.
 
I hope this links helps you.

Hi keerati,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Check the Touch funtionality in OKR environment.
    Turn off the computer and Turn it back on and right away start tapping F2.
    Select Recovery. Once in the Recovery screen Test the touchscreen by touching any of the option if it will respond.

If the touchscreen works in OKR Environment, I suggest you perform a One key recovery (expect dataloss).
 
If the touchscreen still did not work in OKR Environment, I suggest you call Lenovo Technical Team for assistance.
 
Regards
Solid Cruver

The touch-screen monitors are probably more expensive than your regular LCD Monitor...

I have Win 98SE, and have never had any problem with the windows update before.

Now, when trying a Windows Update, I get the message :


'Thank you for your interest in obtaining updates from our site.

This website is designed to work with Microsoft Windows operating systems only.
To find updates for Microsoft products that are designed for Macintosh operating systems, please visit http://www.microsoft.com/mac/. '

Sometimes, while browsing, I also get an warning (something to the effect):

'Due to your current active-x setting, some items may not display correctly'.

I have used free scans from Trendmicro & Kapersky. Also I have used registry cleaners 'Ccleaner' & 'Wise Registry cleaner'.

I'm not sure what setting have been inadvertently been changed.

Can someone suggest a cure please ?

Thanks.

So I have got a Lenovo Y50-70 with 15.6" 3840x2160 UHD Touch Display for about two years now. I've accidentaly dropped my backpack, while the laptop was in it and cracked it's screen so I need to replace it. The screen in the cracked part is working as it was working before the accident, the crack is on the glass. So I was wondering if I can replace my 15.6" 3840x2160 UHD Touch Display with a 15.6" 1920x1080 FHD Non-touch Display? Is it possible?I've read that whether screen you are changing, its working depends on the quantity of pins on the Video signal connector.

Hi,

I have a Sony Vaio Vgn-s38gp Laptop that I have recently performed a recovery on to reset the system. Prior to starting this process all functions such as the inbuilt mouse, wireless etc all were working fine. Now the laptop has the software for all the functions but when I enter into device manager it is registered as a pc. It thinks that there is a usb connecting the keyboard to the system and that it doesn't have the facilities to use the wireless internet.

Is there any way to change my system back to registering as a laptop? I have had this problem in the past (many years ago when we did a system recovery then) but can't remember how we got around this.

Please help!

I can change it back, and it "sticks" with the correct time for a short while (but less than an hour) then changes itself back to 2815 again.

I'm helping someone fix a Lenovo 3000 C200 laptop that has a 1124x768 screen. The image on the screen stretches past the right edge of the screen by maybe 2 inches and past the bottom edge by about 1/2 inch. I checked the resolution and it's set at 1124x768. However, I checked the hardware settings on the monitor and Windows reports it as a 1280x800 screen, which explains why the image appears stretched off the edge. Windows is trying to stretch the image to fill pixels that don't exist. Is there a way to force Windows to recognize the screen as the correct resolution, or is this a hardware problem?

Hi,I have a brand new xps 13 and no matter what I cannot get Windows 10 to identify my 27in external monitor as the larger monitor. For whatever reason (I assume scaling issues) Windows always treats my laptop screen as the larger screen. This makes moving the mouse between monitors clumsy and frustrating. Is there a solution to this?

A:wide screen on laptop after update install

Hello howv47, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Double check your DPI settings to make sure it's set to 100% (96 DPI) to see if that may what's causing this for you.

Best Bet is to download and install windows 8.1 - install your drivers and programs and be done with it..

You can download and create Windows 8.1 setup media > Create installation media for Windows 8.1 - Windows Help

The setup media will accept windows 8 and windows 8.1 product keys..

Hi,

I have a windows 7 touch screen laptop which I am using along with an extended desktop on a secondary monitor. Is there any way I can lock the mouse/pointer onto the secondary monitor but still use the touch screen facility on the laptop itself?

thanks in advance for any help provided.

Hey all, I woke up this morning and started using my computer to find that there were white spots on my computer screen that I had not previously noticed. I have had the computer for two years and haven't had any similar issues. There does not appear to be anything wrong with the pixels, as the color changes appropriately - it's just brighter. Furthermore, the bright spots on the screen heat up much more than the rest of the screen, which remains cool. I also noticed that, though this may be a separate issue, the touch screen isn't responding. Here is an image (it's much more noticeable on a white background): http://imgur.com/09sYisg   Any help is much appreciated!

I've had this Chromebook for under a week, and today out of no where it the screen flickers nonstop.
If im doing something like watching a video, then the entire screen does it. What should i do? I have a warranty.

A:Chromebook 13 with touch screen - flickering/shifting screen

I charged the battery, and once it was 100% it stopped happening. Now my touch screen is on, and i can't turn it off no matter if i use the command or change it in the settings. Im assuming this is a touch screen problem.

A:Black screen of DEATH / laptop froze during BIOS update

From my experience with retail PC's and laptops, using the brands support update utility...I've never heard of any of those updating the BIOS by itself or automatically.

I'm afraid since the BIOS update was botched is some fashion that the damage is done. You may have to contact HP/Compaq directly and see if there is some thing that can be done through them. This may involve sending it off for repair....that is if they can fix it and if they can it would be costly.
