Cannot calibrate my new Acer T231H multitouch screen

Q: Cannot calibrate my new Acer T231H multitouch screen

I recently bought the ACER T231H Multitouch Screen. Earlier this Summer, I had problems with calibrating the Monitor. But eventually, I made it work. After a few days, I had many "Blue Screens" on my PC, and reinstalled the Windows 7 64-bits. And after that, I have had troubles with calibrating the Monitor....When I enter the Calibrating Section, and hit Calibrate, I am not able to prese the Cross in the Top Left corner of the Monitor....I have updated with the latest drivers, and the Monitor is set to Primary....Hope someone can help me with this issue.....

Preferred Solution: Cannot calibrate my new Acer T231H multitouch 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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Cannot calibrate my new Acer T231H multitouch screen

Try uninstalling the driver and letting Windows install it's generic driver to see if that changes anything. If it does, then you'll know it's a driver problem. Also look into your video card drivers and update as nec. - something has an incompatibility issue. I never use software that comes with monitors if I can avoid it, because of issues like yours.

So I've decided to update my BIOS on my laptop Acer E5 511 and afer that my touchpad lost the abilitiy to work on mutlitouch gestures. I can't scroll ,zoom or do the right click by presing with two fingers at the same time.I've tried isntaling the touchpad drivers from the official site, restarted my laptop a few times after but nothing helps.If anyone had the same problem and found the solution please share, I've gotten to used to the multitouch features that now I feel diseabled everytime I use the touchpad just for movin the cousor.

Found the soltion withim minutes after posting this.You have to go to your BIOS or UEFI settings py pressing and holding te F2 button while the laptop is powering on.There you find touchpad and select "Advanced mode", then just save the changes and after the laptop restarts the multitouch features will be back.

In Lenovo started using the term multitouch to mean touchscreen via finger and pen then the iPhone came along and gave it a different common meaning two-finger touch nbsp It s important to understand this because in September Lenovo introduced new touch screens which support multitouch in the now common sense two finger touch This did not and cannot magically give two-finger touch capability to the previously released touchscreen via finger and pen tablets nbsp So Lenovo have bowed to the inevitable and started using the common meaning of multitouch but be careful out there because NONE of the multitouch tablets introduced prior to September have two-finger touch nbsp Check the Personal Systems Reference tabook if you are unsure In the display section you will see nbsp MultiTouch touchscreen via finger and pen lt -- multitouch Lenovo vs multitouch tablets: NO two-finger touch capability OR MultiTouch touchscreen support pen amp two-finger touch nbsp Lastly Lenovo's marketing materials refer to the new two-finger touch feature as enhanced multitouch nbsp March UPDATE With the release of the X Tablet the nomenclature has Lenovo tablets: multitouch vs multitouch become simpler If an X tablet is multitouch it nbsp is two-finger multitouch There are no single-touch pen or finger X tablets nbsp April UPDATE The X Tablet has two screen options multitouch or outdoor The multitouch screen supports finger touch and finger gesture The outdoor screen supports pen nbsp Kudos to the members of the community who have raised and researched this subject Hope this helps you tableteers out there

A:Lenovo tablets: multitouch vs multitouch

Hi Bananaman, Thanks for the link to the file. Unfortunately I can't see my device listed though (7453-6BG). I'm in the UK if this makes a difference. I specifically asked for the two finger multitouch screen (ie 'enhanced' multitouch!) - my tablet won't even recognise 1 finger - only the pen. I've tried downloading the most recent drivers but nothing works. Any advise would be much appreciated!!! Kind regards, Paul

Hey folks. I do a lot of color-related work on my notebook, but am short of actually getting really high end calibration software. Was thinking you might be able to help...
Just got my AW 15 and am matching it against my 2012 M17x. It seems as though the screen is plenty good and can reproduce the colors perfectly, but it's the balance between the colors I can't seem to get right (sky is blue, ground is too yellow. Ground is right, sky is too red, etc.) with the super limited Intel color display adjustments.
Can you recommend any sort of free software that will allow me to set much finer color controls, save profiles, etc.?

My Acer Aspire 5612z, Dual-core celeron, 2GB ram, vista home premium 32bit, has two separate problems. Screen is filled with vertical red blue and white vertical stripes, if I tap the screen frame then the picture is ok for 30 mins or so, then goes stripey again. (Poss fault on FL board?).
Second, Laptop boots, 20 seconds, to Acer screen then stops.
Can only switch off power from that point.

A:Acer Aspire screen problem and only boot to Acer screen

Tapping the screen you could have a loose connection from the LCD Panel to the MOBO connector, but you see if you did the screen would dim out. In your case you have the the same issues that tell me that the LCD Panel is faulty. If this unit is still under warranty then have ACER service the unit or take it to ACER dealer who can either send it back to ACER or they can order the panel and replace it for you at no cost, but then it has to be under warranty. If not you'll have to pay the cost of ordering the part, labor to install it. Find out cost prior to signing any agreement.

On your other issue, did you replace or upgrade the battery or memory? If not then remove the battery and plugin the power only. Try this again does it boot the ACER logo and Windows. Can you put your ear down to the keys or palm rest and hear the HDD spinning up?
If not either the HDD is DOA or faulty power module on the MOBO or just bad MOBO. Again same as above if it's under warranty call or take it to ACER factory service dealer.

Make sure if you had a good battery on this laptop that all switches are switched to the lock mode for the battery.

I have an Elan Smart Pad and I'm not too impressed with the how their software makes use of its multitouch capability. Right now I have the 2 and 3-finger taps set to show the desktop. I'd really like to be able to set one of them to bring up Flip3d or switch between windows.

I was looking for ways to set that up and I came across an old procedure that has something to do with finding the .dll for Flip3d and writing a command to use it and then setting the touchpad to run that command. I feel like there has to be a better way though.

Would installing a Synaptics driver and their gesture suite on an Elan touchpad work? I saw that they have a much better array of uses for multitouch.

A:MultiTouch issue with Ubuntu and EliteBook Folio 1020

That git project you're trying to build is for an old Linux Kernel (3.13). Firstly it will not build with any recent kernels becuase the source functions/logic have changed too much.In Linux 3.18 support for Forcepad was added in the drivers/input/mouse/synaptics.c file. But this supports the HP 1040 Forcepad. The HP 1020 uses another (perhaps newer) model of Forcepad. I too am desperately looking for a solution..

I just updated my t460s and multitouch on the trackpad stopped working! I checked task manager and the Synaptics Pointer Enhancer is still running... honestly not sure if that's what I'm looking for. Obviously it was working just fine before I updated Windows so I don't imagine this being a Lenovo problem but I'm just wondering if anyone has this issue or has a fix, thanks! Edit: For whatever reason Windows disabled multitouch functions. That's weird. It's in device settings if anyone ends up having this issue.

A:Calibrate hp Printer

If you 'calibrate' your printer to fit Avery templates, you may run into problems every where else.

Having an HP printer, and a fan of WordPerfect, I ran into the same problems.

My solution was to build tables for what I needed and saved those files. Once finely tuned, I found I had much more flexibility over what the Avery templates provided (i.e., better control of internal margins). Remember to lock your row heights and column widths.

Bear in mind also, you want each page to be able to fit on any printer if you're going to share the information or print it elsewhere. So make allowances for those printers that may have 'dead' margin areas (usually 0.17" Top/Left/Right and 0.46" Bottom). So 0.25" should be sufficient.

WordPerfect has it's own database, which I found really handy when I had a hugh amount of custom labels (hundreds) to make for a new filing system. Once I had my tables built and tested for perfect positions page after page, I used the database to type in my information. Then I set up fields in the table to be populated. I only needed a table with one row for this job, because I used the 'repeatrow' to create a new row when the current one filled up and continue to populate and grow the table until all the data was populated.

What was really neat was later I could use the database to sort and print just what I wanted, so none of the labels were wasted with misprints. The information was color coded to identify systems, but the information that needed to be typed in was not in order nor coming in at the same time. I saved time by typing all the information into the database and using the unique information to sort which printed on the color labels I had in the printer at the time.

If you think about it, that's all Avery did to create their templates. You're just making your own.

This is a HP 6720s notebook. I'm having problems with my battery.

The percentage indicator is not accurate.

It randomly hibernates below 40%. It's only supposed to do that when it's on 5%. It's supposed to give a "low battery" warning on 10% but it never does that.
Do I need to calibrate the battery? If so what's the best method to do that? Do I need to run it until it's completely empty?

A:Calibrate battery

With most modern batteries you really don't need to "calibrate" them anymore. Having said that.... I do mine about once every six weeks or so, but only if I remember. My battery is over a year and a half old now and gets used on a regular basis. It still charges to 100% so I guess I'm doing something right

I run mine till it turns off by itself or gets to less than 10%, then charge it completely. Or did until recently I should say. I've been running it down to around 50% and then recharge it to full now. No ill effects yet to the "new" routine.

I have a free program that includes a battery monitor .... but I am not on my machine at this moment so cannot recommend/remember what it was/is. Thinking it was primarily a HDD type program. Having said that I have never used it for the battery.

One last thought, have you considered running an sfc/scannow to find and possibly repair any corrupted system files? This may or may not help this specific problem but cannot hurt and may be worth a try. We have many excellent tutorials here written by some very talented people. Just click the link :SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Hope this helps.

Just the software calibration for it has gone.
Now I wonder how I can calibrate it correctly again.

there it says, go to Gamecontrollers in the control panel and chose settings on the controller to calibrate. Then click on the tab settings end click calibrate.
I tried that, but I found no settings tab, neither on the gamecontroller or the Joystick i had allready.

A:3d scanning platform won't calibrate

Hi there @cadash,Welcome back to the HP Support Forums! I am probably too late to help you with this, based on the timing you mentioned, but I will try anyway. Sprout by HP - Calibrating Sprout by HP After initially calibrating the Sprout without the scanning platform added, was the system requiring you to calibrate with the scanning platform installed? From what I can find normally calibrations is only done when there is nothing on the mat at all.  From what i could find, with the turntable installed you just need to start with a background scan to eliminate the turntable itself from any scanned image.  For your reference, here are some other documents you can check out about the process.Sprout by HP - Using 3D Capture with your Sprout by HPSprout by HP - Using the HP 3D Capture Stage with your Sprout by HPSprout by HP - FAQs for 3D Capture Please let me know how that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution.

Accordingly with the retailers and even (i think) the manufacturer this TV's resolution should be 1366x768, but my PC's opinion differs completely, it says that its native resolution is 1920x1080. Now i was doing some testing with a 1080 movie I have and I think I can feel the difference for the best if the TV is set to 1920x1080 than 1366x768.

2- Thre second thing is I don't know how to calibrate the screen in order to be able to read all text properly

Thanks in advance

A:How do I calibrate properly an LCD TV hooked up to my PC

How is the TV connected to the PC - VGA, HDMI, DVI, etc. ?

What does "in order to be able to read all text properly" mean?
Is the problem the text is too small, too large, too blurry, etc. ?

You can right-click on the desktop: then click "Screen resolution"
then click "Make text and other items larger or smaller"
You can then try adjustments and tweaks to see what works best for you.
If you have CCC installed, that also has a lot of options available.

My system has 4 monitors all from a different brand and are driven by 2 different model Nvidia card.

I had to re installed Nvidia and since all color, and luminosity has changed. I just cant get back to what I use to have before.

What is the best way to calibrate the monitors?
- Via the monitors setting button
- Via Nvidia control panel
- Via Windows setup

Is there a good software application to help?

Any help appreciated


A:Best tool to calibrate lcd monitor

Hmm I guess really you have answered the query arjfca - it seems highly likely that the monitors will have to be adjusted individually to suit the others - what you do about the different cards I am not sure, but I would hazard a guess at using the NVidia control panel as best you can to get them aligned up.

The Windows system is not one of my favourite adjusters to be honest because each time I reboot the brightness contrast and gamma all seem to return to default.

Sorry I couldn't be of any more help but when this post comes up someone might just know what to do.

Hi, I'm trying to calibrate my HP 130nr printer's colour. When I go to the option in the print settings however the option is always greyed out. I am running it via USB on my vista 64 bit system and there is no option to enable the button (see jpeg). I've calibrated it before on xp and got into the menu somehow and am wondering how to do so again!

Sounds like a problem with the Avery software. You can try uninstalling, reboot, and performing a fresh install. You may also want to ensure you have any software patches (if there are any) installed.

My knowledge and capability as an IT Manager should mean that this problem is a no-brainier but it has beaten me The second lower panel of my W needs re-calibrating but I cannot convince the device to do this I have accessed Tablet PC Settings and tried Calibrate - this allowed me to calibrate display panel top perfectly With the nd panel trying to tap the crosshair produced the usual sound and circle where my finger pressed but it would not acknowledge the 'tap' The only option was to press on Calibrate 2 Libretto W100 Panel Esc to exit When trying Setup within Tablet PC Settings it seems that the device cannot cope with the idea of having to press Enter to continue - whether on the virtual keyboard or an actual USB device As a result it is not possible to precede onto the actual calibration screen although I can get beyond the 'Touch this screen to identify Calibrate Panel 2 on Libretto W100 it as the touchscreen' command Both touchscreens work perfectly the virtual keyboard works perfectly on both panels it is just that the calibrate process will only allow me to calibrate panel and not panel even when I have selected panel Is there a secret to which I am not privy Any help would be hugely appreciated

Presently operating a Sony monitor, colors set to True Color (32 bit). When watching some DVD's or websites, the colors appear a bit off. The monitor allows modification of the RGB settings (each element, R, G or B can be set to a number between 0 and 100. They are all presently set to 76. Is there an optimal RGB setting for monitors to ensure proper colors?

A:How do I properly calibrate the colors on my monitor?

I'm not sure if this may help you, but in a color palette that have RGB, the number of color use is 256. R (red) go from 0 to 255, G (green) go from 0 to 255 and B (blue) the same.
If I divide 256 by 4, I got 64, so 75 for what you have in your monitor, I going to assume is like 3/4 or 64 in the RGB color wheel. Now when I enter 192 (3*64) in each color (R=164, G=164, B=164) what I got is a 30% gray in another words, to light.
If you lower your RGB to 50% all, you will get a natural gray, therefor, all your colors (movies, pics, etc,) should have a more natural color.
I hope this may help you.
I'm interested in what other people will say about your problem.
Let see.

I'm sorry if this is the wrong place for it, but it seemed appropriate as I'm trying to calibrate with the nvidia control center or the windows color calibration.

So I recently got a second monitor which is working beautifully, but the old monitor's color is off now. If I could adjust the colors via Nvidia or the windows calibrator it would solve the problem. When I adjust, for example, gamma, the changes occur as expected but then switch back to how they were after about a second.

The same thing happens with nvidia controls or windows controls.

Thanks for your time.

This one really looks intriguing with the 4k monitor, but I'm reading blogs and forum posts all over the place with people saying they are having problems with the color, correct white and black settings, etc. with this monitor. I am an enthusiast photographer and print quite a bit. I mainly use Lightroom and PhotoNinja for processing my photos. I would really like to have a laptop with a color correctable display. I have an X-Rite i1Display Pro colorimeter. Has anyone tried to calibrate this monitor with the i1Display Pro? And if so, is anyone having any success? Or, is anyone having any success calibrating this monitor using any other method? Thanks guys, and really look forward to getting some good and positive answers.

The fact that you were able to boot normally after F2 into the bios menu, F9 to re-set the bios to factory default, then F10 to save this default bios setting, ***strongly*** suggests that the bios was losing it's memory of the specific hard drive that was installed.    Jack E/NJ

Hi! The rightmost 10% of my Laptop's display is broken; dead pixels top to bottom.
Therefore, I want to reduce my resolution from 1600x900 to 1440x900 and display this on the leftmost (working) 90% of my screen. Reducing the resolution is easy, but the resulting image is automatically centered on my display (the left- and rightmost 5% of my screen are black bars). I need to somehow slide this image to the right so that all unused pixels with the reduced resolution are on the right (coinciding with the broken section of my screen).
Does anyone know a win7, intel display driver or 3rd party software solutions that lets me recalibrate my screen's borders? Thanks in advance!

Unless your laptop is the same model as you girlfriend's - or at least from the same laptop series - your recovery disk won't work, mainly because it will try to install the wrong drivers.

Hi trinishoes and welcome to TSF.

So you are able to boot into Windows normally again, but there is now a line appearing on the monitor?

Right click on 'My Computer' and select 'Manage'. In the Computer Management window, select 'Device Manager' on the left and look for any warning signs.

I'm hoping that this is just a faulting driver issue and not a hardware issue. (Broken Screen) I take it that the netbook hasn't been dropped or knocked about?

If it does turn out to be a damaged screen, then seeing as it's only 2 months old, it should still be under warranty.

My dad had this laptop for work.. The model is travelmate 2700.

Im not sure if its the computer, or the screen, but if I dont firmly hold the top left corner of the screen, the screen will slowly turn white. But when i hold the corner, its still usable.

My dad tinkered with it once and took the top left screw out (he's a computer technician) and then it worked for a while. But then the sme problem resurfaced. Eventually he put th screw back in.

The computer is still functional when the screen is white/in the midst of fading. For example, even if i cant see whats going on, i can still type, and the mouse will still move. As im typing this, for example, the screen is completely white.

I am having momentary screen blackouts, usually while browsing in Chrome/Opera with many tabs open. Do you also have this type of disturbing screen blackouts? I really like my R13 but this keeps bugging me that I even think of selling my laptop. I tried updating graphics driver myself but it said it was customized by manufacturer. I would appreciate if you could offer an update to fix this issue. Thanks.

A:Problem with screen on Acer Netbook

Hello PrehistoricCat and Welcome to TSG.

Restart the system, and on bootup start tapping F8 On the screen select Safe Mode. Do you have this issue there in safe mode? If not then I suspect corrupted video drivers. Uninstall the drivers there in safe mode and restart the system. Windows will load default drivers for the video. Now go to Acer and download the latest drive for your video.

If you do have this issue in safe mode, this could very well be a hardware problem with the display itself, and needs to be look at by a repair tech.

My Acer r3 431 screen is upside down and my keyboard does not work HEEELLLPPPP I have tried to go into the intel graphics setting which was suggested in another post but as soon as i click apply and then exit the settings it turns back over. My keyboard also does not work so am having to use the touch screen keyboard and a flipped over laptop, which is fine if I want to use it like that while im on the lounge etc but so so great when typing up assessments and doing research.I really need help to fix this asap! Only started doing it when i turned it back on yesterday morning.... :\

There should be a reset button (see the owner's manual for where - on my r3-131 it is next to one of the center screws on the back. Look for a pinhole. I'd try that first.

The screen went to sleep...not unusual. But it wouldn't come back on. I powered it off and back on and the power light comes on and I can hear the fan, but I don't hear it accessing the hard drive. I tried holding down the power button for several minutes, but no change. No beeps and nothing at all on the screen. I also do not see the laptop listed as connected to my home network. Most of the suggestions I've seen involve removing the battery but this model doesn't have an easily accessible battery, so disassembly would be required. Model ES1-511-C59V Any suggestions as to anything else I can try before I have to pay someone to fix it, or replace it?

I own an Acer 6920 Laptop. Recently if I open the monitor beyond a 90 degree angle - I get yellow horizontal lines and the screen is not readable. I am not sure if this is a monitor problem, inverter issue or something else.
Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

My mother is having problems with her laptop, she said she could shut it down last night so unplugged it and left it over night, and today when she started it up everything was fine apart from a dark screen.

I have been on teamviewer trying to get to the bottom of it. Fn and arrow keys apparently adjust the brightness temporarilly but it just defaults back. I ran some windows check for solutions and it threw up this warning which indicates to me it could be a video card issue.

It also said something about Skype, so I updated that. I ran CCleaner and the SF_diagnostic tool. I have attached the zipped file to this thread. can anyone offer any insight to the possible cause of this because I'm stumped?

She is using Vista.

Does anyone know how to disable the Acer logo screen that pops up everytime I start or reboot my Acer Travelmate 2480 (Windows XP)?

Thanks for any help!


A:How to Disable Acer Boot Screen

Is it the ACER screen that you see right before the windows screen loads or is it the image that flashes doing the BIOS startup?

Control Panel, Power Options, click on Change advance power settings. In the box that pops up there is a long list of changes you can make. You could increase the time before your hard drive turns off. I have one for my wirless adapter with maximum performance down to low. Your lan may be listed if your not wireless. A combination of increasing the hdd time and lan may get you around the problem.

Hi Gang,
my wife has a Acer 7736Z laptop that the kids got water on/behind the screen leaving a water outline after drying. is there a way to take apart the screen and clean it? or is it now permanent damage?....thanks

A:Acer water screen damage

You can clean it if you can get it apart... for a lot of folks, the first one is going to cause some damage as you learn...
But the biggest problem is convincing your spouse you should be allowed to do it.

You remove the keyboard, and other parts... remove the ribbon cable from between the bottom and the screen side,
Then it is a matter of removing the screw covers then the screws... Depending on the laptop model, there can be as few as 9 or as many as 33 screws holding the screen side together... and more to get to the back of the screen in some cases.
Easy enough to clean with a mixture of distilled water and denatured alcohol.
Even putting it back together is not that difficult, until the last part which is the replacement of screw covers. If you have never done it before, and if you do not have a new set of screw covers, the results can be a great deal more ugly than the watermarks in the back.

Shop/search for the replacement screw covers first... once you have those actually in hand, take on the rest. You will need high quality steel long, medium, and short #0 philips screw drivers. Some of the screws are held in with the blue screw sealing compound, so you may need some of that at the end.

First laptop will likely take four hours, if you are good with tools and your hands.
After that, you can do them in 20 to 30 minutes, start to finish.
Newer laptops may have new style connectors and screw covers... I haven't looked at an acer in nearly a year.
