Unable to use touch screen on P40

Q: Unable to use touch screen on P40

Hello, I cannot use the touch screen on my Thinkpad Yoga P40 anymore, may that be in laptop mode or tablet mode. I bought this product four months ago. I do not see where this issue could come from, and I could not find any solution online.Any advice on how to make it work again?Thanks in advance. Kind regards, FabienC

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My Ideapad S415 touch screen has suddenly stopped working.  I've had a tech connect to my PC and try a BIOS reload of default settings, plus unistalling all "HID" devices in Device Manager with no resolution.  I've also tried a system restore with no luck. The system properties does see the touch capability. Suggestions? Thanks.

A:Ideapad S415 Touch - touch screen stopped working

hi Hersh,
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

I have a kiosk on which I've just installed 8.1 pro. It has an oem touch screen manufactured by General touch (p/n st6001u). I've installed the driver and it seems to work but Windows still says "no pen or touch available". My customers using the
kiosk will need to type on screen in addition to just clicking. Is there any way to for the OS into touch mode? I believe under 7 there was an option in Windows features but I can't seem to find anything on 8. Google has been no help.

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.

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):   Any help is much appreciated!

Looking into using a touch screen monitor. I use Windows 7 Home Premium and I understand that Windows Touch is available on the version.

If I would get the monitor, do I need to find drivers or are they include with Win 7?

Is anyone using a touch screen monitor now?

Looking at Windows 8, I have been playing with the Consumer Preview copy and it looks like a touch screen would be useful with Win 8 if a person would decide to upgrade to that.


A:Touch screen anyone using

Hello Jack, welcome to Sevenforums!

Touchscreen is useful, and fun. It is by no means neccessary, however. Windows has a standard driver, but for a touchscreen, you will want to look up the driver on the monitor's manufacturer's website. There are 2 different drivers - 64 and 32 bit. Make sure you get the right one according to your system.

If I were to use touchscreen, it would be because of application(s) that require it, or are easier to use because of it.

My touch screen stopped working under Windows 8. I tried every step I could find on these forums - disabling the touch screen driver, restarting, updating the driver - with one exception; under Component Tests in my HP Diagnostics UEFI, there is no Touch Screen component listed. It is there under Device Manager etc., but cannot be found in the UEFI. I updated the computer to Windows 10 and the problem remained. I restored the computer to its factory settings and the problem has remained. There is no damage to the computer, which is still quite new, and which works perfectly in every other respect. Previously, the touch screen might stop working and a restart would solve the problem, but it has not worked at all for some time now. Any suggestions?

If you want touchscreen capability, you will need a touchscreen. But I am sure Win8 will also work with the traditional gear.

I'm planning to buy a new laptop but will never be using the touch screen. Will I lose any functionality in Win10 by just using a mouse and keyboard with a touch-screen laptop? Do touch screen models use a different version of Win10?

BTW, I know I can buy a non-touch screen model and may do that, but we're looking for a large screen and non-touch choices are limited.

A:Not using touch screen

There's no problem with that, any icons or tiles are clickable with mouse, just like everywhere else. For touch screen devices there is "Tablet mode" and can be turned off to behave same as any other desktop/laptop. If device doesn't have touch screen, Tablet mode is disabled by default.

Tablet Mode - Turn On or Off in Windows 10

There's no special version of Windows for such cases except for Windows phones.

Being physically disabled & cannot use my hands at all I type by using a head-pointer with an eraser for a tip. Yes, I?m not going to be dishonest here, I?m using an aftermarket touch screen with Vista, but I?m leery on how (or if) I can still use it with W7? I don?t know how, but I would just love to get in contact with a MS Developer to express my views. Am I correct in assuming that the touch screen option requires a human finger touch?

A:Touch screen in W7?

W7 isn't limited to touchscreens that only respond to finger operation but to touchscreens whose controllers identify them as HID touch devices, a relatively new category. W7, like its predecessors, recognizes HID mouse devices, which most touchscreens have been until recently. Treating a touchscreen as a mouse has never delivered the best user experience, as it precludes right-click-on-hold, calibration, edge acceleration, and many other valuable facilities. Consequently, vendor-specific drivers, which do provide these facilities, have been used. W7 accepts most of these drivers. In the WDM driver stack, these are lower-level drivers. To the OS, the device still appears to be mouse. Therefore, none of the new touchscreen-specific features of W7 will be available.

The reason that you might have heard that only finger operation is supported is that W7 recognizes as touch devices only those that identify themselves as HID-touch. Of these, only the ones that generate touch-specific events allow you to use gestures and multi-touch. The two technologies most likely to support these are capacitive, which requires finger activation, and wire-matrix digitizer, which requires an electronic pen. W7 can still use other touchscreens, including old ones, but the new capabilities will not be available.

Hi all,

I have recently aquired two touchscreen machines. They are the control unit for cash registers. They are both fairly low spec:

Celeron 1.2Ghz
256 ram
30gb HDD

Just like to hear some ideas on what I could do with this with focus on the touch screen.

Microsoft has just announced that MS-Windows 7 (I like the name Borg) will have a touch screen feature to it. We know that from the Longhorn/Vista over promising and then cutting features out like WINFS. So if MS really wants a late 2009 early 2010 release will MS cut features again just to get it out the door? Or will Windows 7 really just be Windows Vista 1.2 ie service pack 2 of Vista. I think it will be just Vista Service pack 2 with a few newer features for newer devices. MS knows people hate vista but i love it since i can now cheat at solitare and when you copy files and a file is in use it now asks you what you want it to do instead of just crapping out on you.

A:Windows 7 What Will the Touch Screen Be Cut?

I don't actually know where you're going with this...

We don't know much about Windows 7 yet do we?
Vista also looked a hell like XP on Milestone 1, but look what it became!

So Windows 7 will be a lot more different than the first picture we saw.

Hope that it is just drivers but what you do is to unzip the driver package into a temporary directory. When the touchscreen is working Right click on START (long press) and go to Device Manager>Human Interface Devices>HID compliant touch screen Click/touch Driver/update driver then select "Browse...on your computer, point to the temorary directory with the new driver and press NEXT. If it is a newer driver it will load it.

Hi -

Do you know that like a mouse, the touch screen does not process until you release? Check it out. Put your mouse over a link, hold down the left button, move the mouse and release the button. Nothing happens. It's the same for the touch screen.

How can I change this? I want the touch screen to activate when touched rather than removed. I believe this is in the mouse setting since it is acting like a mouse and performing the same job. I have looked all over the Internet and cannot find the answer. By the way, we have a HP Touch Smart computer running XP Home Premium.

Any help is greatly appreciated. I need this to help my daughter who has developmental delays. You can get more information about her at The Grub Club® - About Us.

I understand with the correct specs, drivers, vid card (and monitor?) that Win7 PCs can have touch screen capability.

The HP TouchSmart IQ545a already has that, with Vista.

If I am in the markert for a new PC, and WANT at least the ability to have a WIN7 Upgrade voucher for future use AND want touchscreen capability, what do I specifically look for spec-wise?

In other words, are there any presently available PCS apart from the HP, that CAN have the touchscreen capabilty when on Win7. And is the HP TouchSmart IQ545a upgradable to Win7, anyone know, that would then retain touchscreen capability post-upgrade?

Gee, I hope that was clear!


A:Windows 7 - touch screen

To start i must say touch screen has been around since late xp days. Its just that Win7 is slightly optimized for touch screens.

Then in regards about the upgrade. You can wait about 25-30 days for the PC's running Win7 to hit the shelves(that way you don't have to mess with the install, hoping drivers work, etc.), or you can go buy a Pc that has an upgrade through the pc's manufacturer which can take months to receive back.

After having issues with my laptop, diagnostics showed that I needed to replace my HDD. It was replaced with an SSD, and windows 10 was reinstalled (as that was the OS before replacement). Now the laptop shows that there is "no pen or touch input" in the control panel and the Human Interfacing for touch screen is missing. Both Windows Update and HPSA have been no help in finding the driver for it or in giving any useful information. I just don't really want to have paid extra for touch that doesn't work....

Hi, If thats the case then your best bet is to update the drivers using hp support site. I am going to include pictures so you could follow the steps properly. Go to then type the product number to the search bar  Click Software and Drivers  Then Click Go  Select the current version of windows you are using  Then look for the drivers you seek that you believe missing.  Good luck!

After replacing my previous Lenovo Laptop because of my screen going black, my wife purchased this y50-y70 touch as a gift. I only had this since January 2016 and I'm already having problems with this too. I use this as a work computer so it is usually on at least 8 hours a day. The screen has a discoloration at the bottom left corner. It looks like when someone put a magnet next to an old TV causing the display to discolor. Also, the screen flickers a lot. And just today the display turned green.  I've updated all the drivers which didn't have any effect on the flickering. After reading some other posts with similar issues, I went ahead and changed some display settings in the graphics properties. I hope someone can help with these issues. I've had this computer for less than a year.  I currently have Windows 10 Pro installed.

or this?
These are the Lenovo Wireless Windows 8 TouchPad K5923 and the Logitech T650, respectively. They'll give you the standard swipe gestures as well as provide additional gestures. However, the experience is not quite the same as a true touchscreen. They are, at the heart, trackpads that recognize multitouch.

Hi, Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A great place where you can find solutions for your issues with help from the community! I have gone through your issue of touchscreen digitizer has been broken. So there are Two option: 1.  If your product is under warranty then contact HP call center and asking for that hardware replacement in HP service center. So hp executive will help you as needed. Also you can call if it's out of warranty and want to fix it. 2. You can purchase online also , as few online sellers are selling that product and fix it on your own. I would recomend the option 1. Hope this will help. Thanks.  ****Click the White Kudos star to say thanks********Please mark Accept As Solution if it solves your problem****

Hi all

windows 7 does not say i have a touch screen or pen input connected when i go to the system information screen.

but windows 7 sees the monitor here

is there any way of getting windows to recognise it.

Thanks Tom.

A:elo touch screen is not recognised.

The touchscreen controller (chip inside the touchscreen) tells the OS that it is a HID mouse device rather than a HID touch device, which is a relatively new HID device category. If the Elo-specific driver (XP/Vista/7) is installed, the OS USB-HID driver will give it control of the touchscreen and it does not support gestures or multi-touch. Otherwise, the generic USB-HID driver will treat the touchscreen as a mouse, which also doesn't support these features. I once wrote an Elo-specific driver for the Tablet PC OS where the driver tricked the OS into treating it as a touch device (Tablet PC was the first OS with native support for touch) but I don't know whether W7 would allow this. In, any case, it would be available only through Elo.
