Preferred Solution: Cleaning the touch screen

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.)

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.

Hello everyone, my touch screen on my lenovo ideapad z400 touch is not working anymore.  The only weird thing I remember is some ghost touchpoint on my screen. I've been looking for the answer to this issue, but it seems that Lenovo does not address this problem.  If someone has found the solution to this problem and wants to share it with me, I will be forever grateful.

A:Lenovo S210 Touch broken LCD and Touch screen

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.
Regards

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!

Hello @JeffJadoo, Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! The Forums are a great place where you can find solutions for your issues, with help from the community! I understand that you are having an issue with the Touch Screen, and wanted to assist you! Did the notebook originally ship with Windows 10?  How did you go about formatting the notebook, and installing Windows 7?  You may be able to use the Recovery Manager to restore the drivers, however, based on how you installed Windows, the Recovery Partition may already be removed.  You can also try reviewing the following document, to see if the information helps: HP Notebook PCs - Touch Screen Issues (Windows 8) Please post back with the results.  It is possible that the Touch Screen may not be supported for Windows 7 on that particular notebook. Please let me know if this information helps you resolve the issue by marking this post as "Accept as Solution", this will help others easily find the information they may be looking for.  Also, clicking the Thumbs up below is a great way to say thanks! Have a great day!

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'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): http://imgur.com/09sYisg   Any help is much appreciated!

My 20" LCD screen has no dead pixels (I guess a pixel is one block in a grid) and looks ok when displaying. However, when the monitor is off, there are cloudy (smdgy) looking places on the screen. They are quite pronounced! Should I be concerned and try cleaning the screen with alcohol.water mix? Maybe I should ignore it? Monitor is nearly three yearss old.

A few days ago I bought some screenwipes to clean my monitor screen & iPhone screen. They worked great on my iPhone & laptop but when I did my W7 tower I felt bumps which are from un expected sneezes & would like to know if there is another way to clean that off or if I'll just have to use more than one wipe.

I need to clean (more than dust) the screen of a Benq T903 LCD monitor. I'm unsure about using liquid solutions (alcohol, etc). Any suggestions, please?

A:Cleaning lcd monitor screen

Hi
I only used a microfiber and water (I have used city and well water) and have never had anything that didnt come off and the water only left water spots (really should use distilled water but thats not as easy to get).
My mom use to use rubbing alcohol on her laptop lcd screen and over time it became dull looking. I think it takes a layer off of the top of the screen which is suppose to help with glare.

So yea, just water and a clean microfiber cloth. No soap or anything else. If you must use something stronger than water, maybe a very diluted soap or rubbing alcohol but I have never seen the need for this, the water and time should remove everything.

If you do get the water spots, you can clean them with a dry cloth, it wont be perfect but it will be better.

Also, don't let the water run down the screen. if it goes into the case of the screen it can damage some of the electronically components, so just use a damp cloth, dont put the water onto the screen.

Although I?m not using Windows 7 OS yet, what it has to offer & all that I?ve seen, it's pretty impressive. I'm in the process of deciding whether to go with the upgrade W7 or purchase a new Laptop/Notebook? One concern or complain I must state. I understand that Windows 7 comes with touch screen capabilities, but ONLY works with a human touch? 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.

Now I am having issues with the touch screen. It was working fine before, but now it is not responding to any of my input. The drivers seem to be all up to date, and I've installed all the available updates for my PC.
 
Does anyone have a solution for my problem? I don't want to have reinstall Windows or anything like that, so please don't suggest it unless I really have to.

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?

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.

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.

Thanks

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.

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.

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.

Hi

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.

We're buying an inexpensive Acer Aspire for the office. The new lower end machines now are preloaded with Win8 vs Win7 (unfortunately).

To upgrade the machine to a touch screen would require an additional $150.

We only use the machine for Word, Excel and Outlook--a touch screen is totally unnecessary.

Is there a way to setup a Win8 machine with a non touch screen to use with a mouse (or similar pointing mechanism) and not negatively affect one's use and performance? Also, is there a way to setup a Win8 desktop so it sort of looks like a Win7 desktop?

Thanks--

Mark

A:New machine touch screen?

Classic Start Menu is what I use for gaining a start button/menu. It works quite well, google will find it for you, there are also several others available online.

The computer should function just fine with a mouse as it comes out of the box. I have an All in one unit with touch screen and I seldom use the touch. I go to the metro side now and then and use the touch but it is not something I value very much at all. I can use touch to scroll around and move the cursor but the mouse does fine as well in the desktop.

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 https://support.hp.com 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!

I have an Intel I7 Desktop with a 30in screen.

I wish to run Win8, and have the touch screen capability. Is there, say, a glide pad type touch screen that I can buy to input touch gestures? Maybe 8" or even better, use an app on an iPad?

I need to keep my large screen for a few reasons, one of which is that I am disabled, and my sight is failing, so I am seeking an addon glide pad type solution.

A:Alternate Win 8 Touch Screen

do you mean like a trackpad/touchpad?

like this?

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 I would like to buy the P and got some doubts regarding the display My main ? screen reflective touch P50 - FHD use is programming and data analysis I do some photography graphics and animation as a hobby The K seemed tempting but after reading many complaints about it I decided not to take the risk I understand the FHD would be far from ideal for photography but at least there is a better chance it won't be faulty and it might be great for programming nbsp My main question is regarding the touch vs non-touch FHD and anti-glare The touch-screen and a pen would be a nice to have but only if it doesn't disturb P50 FHD touch screen - reflective ? the usability of this screen for working nbsp I haven't seen any reviews about the touch screen are there any nbsp In the following video it seems there is a P K touch screen I thought the touch is available only in FHD and it seems highly reflective almost as a mirror Is it the case with the P FHD touch screen too https www youtube com watch v yqIUFHj p If the P FHD touch screen is that reflective I would probably buy the non-touch version nbsp Is it possible to use the pen on any P FHD touch screen or is it a special type of touch display Thanks nbsp nbsp nbsp

A:P50 FHD touch screen - reflective ?

The FHD touch on mine has a matte finish that is less reflective than the 4k video. I got the pen, and think the screen is the not different to touch only. Beware you may lose out on the pwm lottery and get lumbered with pwm at anything less than full brightness.
