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

Hi

I've just acquired a Satellite R10-101 Laptop/Tablet.

The machine did not come with a touch pen so I am unsure if the touch screen is working or not.

When the machine is in tablet mode the touch screen does not respond to any touch with a finger. I have tried a pointing device from a hand held Windows CE device that has a touch screen but this does not work on the R10's touch screen.

Does the touch screen need to be enabled or do I need to obtain a Toshiba Touch Pen?

The machine is running Windows XP Tablet Edition. Will I get the same functionally if I upgrade to Windows 7. Is the R10's hardware compatible with Win 7?

Thanks for any help or advice.

A:Satellite R10-101: touch screen does not respond in tablet mode

Hi

The display panel works as a touch sensitive digitizer screen.
You need the Tablet Pen in order to use the touch display in tablet mode.

I think that you can order the missing tablet pen from Toshiba authorized service partner in your country or google for the part numbers: P000407550 or P000445420

I have a basic model of the YOGA 300 (11 BY).  Due to size limitations of the eMMC drive, I couldn't upgrade to windows 10 (not enough disk space). So I downloaded the windows 10 installer/ISO to a 32gb SD Card, and upgraded from there.. actually (probably a mistake in retrospect) I did a clean install.. Windows 10 runs with no problems, and I downloaded./installed all the Lenovo drivers for windows 10 for this machine. Unfortunately I now have two issues: 1. When I flip the screen into tablet mode, the laptop doesn't seem to realise, and so I don't get the auto-tablet mode that I would expect? 2. Even with all the Lenovo drivers for this machine installed, I do not get any touch-screen response at all.. only mouse driven. Any help would be appreciated. P.S:  Anyone with the same version of YOGA 300 with an eMMC who wish to gain more drive space?  You can buy a cheap USB 3.0 slimline USB disk (because the SD Card sticks out a bit) and create a VHD which gives you a second "real drive"... this was particularlly useful when wanting to store my dropbox/onedrive sync locations!

I have updated all the drivers and BIOS and etc that was suggested in the Lenovo scan. It did nothing to resolve the issue. I searched for previous posts of the same problem and none of the solutions worked either. Note: I do not have anything pertaining to touchscreen in Human Interface in Device Manager and tablet mode is enabled under settings. I appreciate any help.Thanks so much.

Hi all, I've noticed that my Yoga 910 is not auto rotatingwhen I set it to tent mode nor to tablet mode. Not only it doesn't auto rotate but it also keep the keyboard active... Not sure if this is a faulty sensor problem or just some bug. I've tried to follow the solutions presented in other topics but without success even tried a system restore but the problem is still here. I can't really identify which update has created this situtation but I know that when a couple of months ago it was still working. I also have the impression that more are affected, so could Lenovo release a patch to troubleshoot and solve such an important issue for a Yoga product (basically there is no Yoga functionality with this problem). Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks!

When the computer is off - and I split the tablet from the keyboard - I then start the tablet up - everything boots fine.  When I open up a browser (either firefox or edge) and  I  touch the address bar of the browser to put the cursor there and then touch the icon to bring up the onscreen keyboard - I try to type in an address but the keyboard switches every 3 or 4 seconds between 2 different kinds - one with a .com (and a .ca also- I'm in canada) near the spacebar and one without it - I cannot get in more than 2 or 3 characters before the browser highlights the address bar - and I can't enter any more characters unless I delete them and type real fast. I'm sure it is some sort of windows 10 issue with the on screen keyboard being used with a browser (problem only happens when I use a browser - either of the above). I can get around this by opening google and typing my address in the googles search window in the main body of the screen - but no other way. I have updated windows and all the hp drivers - am at a loss - did an internet search and nowhere could I see that peoples on screen keyboard has the .com button next to the spacebar. This issue does not happen if I start the unit up with the keyboard & screen attached - then detach it and work with it as a tablet. I have also tried various windows settings as touch friendly tablet mode - with no luck. I should mention one other anomily that may be related - sometimes wh...

Hi everyone, I have a problem with touch keyboad. It properly functions while I turn it on and use the computer in a regular manner. However, when I turn on the tablet mode and try to type, it shows up only for a second and disappears. I saw a similar topic on this issue where it was advised to install mode controll drivers. I have done this (version 2.0.0.9), however, nothing changed and the issue still exists. I found numerous discussions on this matter (it seems to be a common problem), but nobody was able to give a real advice which would actually help to solve this issue. I would appreciate if you could share your experience and advice on this. Thank you!

Windows XP Tablet Edition had to be removed from my Lenovo ThinkPad X41 tablet because the PC was issued for school, and the school-licensed software had to be removed. Now I'm running Windows XP Pro (a mistake on the school technical administrator's part?), and the touch screen no longer responds to the stylus.
I tried to contact the school technical administrator, calling to his attention that I'm no longer running Tablet Edition, which is probably necessary, but he has not responded.
I've tried installing such drivers as 7jge15ww and 913z07us, and I've run the ThinkVantage System Update several times, to no avail. Is there a driver I'm overlooking? Is it at all possible to simply USE my tablet properly without having to go out and buy Windows XP Tablet Edition?

If the Recovery Partition is still intact and accessible you can return to Windows XP Tablet Edition by following these instructions: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-4UFUYK

Looking at the downloads I don't see a driver for the Touch Screen: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-67100
When you ran the System Update utility you installed all the drivers and software/accessories updates?

I have an ASUS tablet that I don't know the model nor is it listed anywhere on the tablet. it originally had a detachable keyboard but the guy that gave it to me didn't have it. according to device manager, it has a generic touch screen driver. I have frequent unresponsiveness and sporadic automatic touches a with the touch screen, and I think it may be due to the generic touch screen drivers. If I had the ASUS one, I think it would work better. Device manager reports the hardware ID as: HID\VEN_ATML&DEV_1000&Col01 but no search engine can find it. Google had only two pages of results, all of which were dodgy. Many others like Yahoo only had one page of results of the same dodgy or other dodgy results. I was wondering if you can lead me to the right one. You have been so helpful with finding me drivers before so I am sure it would be no problem.

I have just bought a 7" Android tablet from China at a very good price. It works well except for one thing, scrolling on the touch screen. I have to press hard to get it to scroll which causes it to open up what was pressed or it will scroll very quickly to the bottom of the page. I don't seem to have any control over the scrolling. I have contacted the company about this and I am waiting on a reply. Would anyone have a solution to this problem? Thanks.

This is my first post here. I use PSPro for drawing for fun. I use a mouse. Recently I was given a tablet. In theory this is better, as holding a pen is easier than the mouse for drawing. The main problem is that the image is on the laptop screen and the pen is on the plain tablet, so you have to guess where to start drawing by moving the pen around until the cursor is positioned where you want it. The next problem is that I do not want to relearn all the PSP commands (and positions around the edge) on the tablet. The mouse works with the tablet, but putting the pen down to use the mouse is a hassle. There are expensive (around 1000) tablets with a touch screen where you draw on the image, just like a pencil on paper. Too expensive for me. Is there a touch-screen tablet that will work with Paint Shop Pro? What about an Ipad? I dont really know how a touch screen works with a programme liike PSP. Do you just touch the screen in the same place as you would position the cursor? Does a tablet have USB ports so I could save my work on a memory stick, or by cable to the drive in my laptop? I dont know if its possible, but If I could draw on the touch screen and save my work on my laptop, this would be ideal. I hope someone can help. Thanks in advance.

NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 Video Driver - 7.15.11.5682
This is the video driver version for my HP tablet(HP Website). But unknowingly I installed the latest version(7.15.11.7770) from NVIDIA through Windows update. And from that time onwards, my touch screen stopped working. It is not recognizing my stylus/finger.
I contacted HP care and they advised me to follow these steps.
1) Uninstall the latest driver and install the 11.5682 driver
2) Bios Flash
3) Calibrate
I am done with the first two steps but still my touch screen is not recognizing the pen. So I couldn't calibrate.
When I contacted the HP care again, they are telling it may be because of hardware failure. My notebook is working perfectly except this touchscreen.

Please anyone help me to solve the issue.

I own a Fujitsu TH700 Tablet PC. It initially ran Windows 7 and everything was working really well on it, but then I upgraded to Windows 10 (I was curious) and some features just have not worked properly since. The one problem that I have been unable to fix is the touch screen. When the computer is in its "laptop position" (see image) the touch screen works just fine. However, when I rotate the screen and click it into the "tablet position" the touch screen becomes completely unresponsive. When I lift the lid again into the "laptop position", the screen remains unresponsive until I put the computer to sleep and wake it up again. After that, it works completely fine.

When the laptop screen is turned and clicked into the "tablet position", there is a programming shift that happens to turn the laptop into "tablet mode" (this is not the same as Windows 10 tablet mode. In-fact, Windows 10 tablet mode doesn't recognize me turning the screen and clicking it into the "tablet position"). I'm not sure what the differences are between the TH700's laptop mode and tablet mode. The only thing I can see is that the screen auto rotates (as shown in the image).

This malfunction started occurring soon after I downloaded Windows 10, but I'm fairly sure it was working properly for a week or so. It was only when I connected my TH700 (in the "tablet position") into an external projector that the touch scree... Read more

Every time I fold the screen back, it will enter tablet mode as per usual, but then once the screen actually touches the bottom of the laptop, completely folded back, it turns off and enters tablet mode. It's almost as if the sensor thinks the screen is folded shut completely and the laptop enters sleep mode.  Any ideas on what may ber happeneing? Thanks in advance.

Tablet mode;- Disabling the Synaptics Pointing Device from Device Manager;- Disabling Human Interface Devices (even though nothing with ?touch? is listed here) from Device Manager;- Disabling all trackpad features from Synaptics. The way to work from the W541 is to use a mouse without ever touching the trackpad and to never lock the laptop which is ridiculous. Operating system: Windows 10 Enterprise (issue also confirmed on Windows 8)

My son showed me his iPad today running a program called Notability. He had a special pen used to write on the screen and he could store is drawings and/or notes as files the same as we store Word documents.

I have no desire to change to a Mac so here's what I'm considering.
A Windows 10 touch-screen-type tablet with i7 (or maybe i5) processor, a keyboard that can either be used like a stand-up laptop and folded back for use like a tablet.
A program like his Notability for Windows (I have no idea what is available or what it would be called.)

I don't know if this will help you but it solved a similar problem I had on my Windows 8 touch PC:
If you are able to reach the Start/app tile screen or desktop and from there "view local services" which you can find by typing "services" in the Start screen scroll down the list until you come to the "Touch Keyboard and Handwriting Panel Service" which
should say "Automatic (triggered)" and "Running"
From there "right-click" that service (or otherwise get into its properties), click the "Log On" Tab, click the first option under "Log on as:" (circle button "Local System account") and make sure to Check box "Allow service to interact with desktop"
For me this box somehow became unchecked when I "Refreshed" my windows 8 to solve another issue. Once I checked the box, the keyboard started to reappear at the login screen.

Hi everyone, I have a Lenovo X220 Tablet that has touch screen and pen. They suddenly stopped working today. The LCD screen still works pefectly fine, however. The touch screen is enabled on the touch settings. When I try to calibrate, it does not detect my finger or the pen. I also noticed that when I tried to reinstall the driver and it said "a supported tablet was not found on this system". I have the most recent bios. I am running Windows 7 that came with the laptop. All windows updates completed. Is it possible for the digitizer to be defective, but the LCD screen to work perfectly fine?Could it be just a ribbon failure?Which part would need to be replaced, if this is the case? Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

A:X220 tablet touch screen suddenly stopped working

Even though it looks like a single device, it is really 3 separate ones.  There is a basic panel.  There is a static discharge digitizer in the front to sense finger touches.  There is a second Wacom digitizer behind the panel to detect the pen.  Any of them can fail.  The wires in the cable can also crack.  Since both digitizers failed, I would first look in device manager to see if there could be a problem with a USB hub.  (digitizers both connect as USB devices.)  My next guess would be the cable.  Sorry I cannot be more definite.

Tablet mode;- Disabled the Synaptics Pointing Device from Device Manager;- Disabled Human Interface Devices (even though nothing with ?touch? is listed here) from Device Manager;- Disabled all trackpad features from Synaptics control panel;- Disabled TabletInputService. The way to work from the W541 is to use a mouse without ever touching the trackpad and to never lock the laptop which is ridiculous. Windows 10 Enterprise (issue also confirmed on Windows 8)

I have a ThinkPad L380 Yoga. This seems like a simple task, but I cannot figure out a good way to get the screen to come back on when I am in tablet mode. The screen times out, since it is in tablet mode the keyboard and touch pad do not work to wake the screen up. The touch screen does not work becuase the screen is off. The power button only puts the computer to sleep or wakes it up. The only way I can get the screen to come on again is to put the laptop back into laptop mode. This is frustrating because I would like to leave it in tablet mode and not put it back into laptop mode.

My X220 tablet comes with pen and limited touch support with 2 touch points. I have no issues on windows 7 but on windows 8.1 it has changed to be working with only 1 touch point since some time that I don't remember exactly when. So that I can work with one finger only and 2-finger functions such as pinch to zoom are unavailable. My drivers are all uptodate. I think I should completely uninstall the related driver before reinstalling but don't know how to procede and couldn't find the solution. I tried uninstalling all HIDs through Device manager and one-by-one, specifically wacom device. when I uninstall it, I lose touch option completely. but reinstalling through Device Manager sounds like recovering exactly the previous faulty condition. Maybe there is a conflict with windows 8.1 like Microsoft Input Configuration Device which might be unlikely.  So is there any other way to have full wipe and clean reinstall of those touch screen drivers? I appreciate it if you put links to the drivers for me, if they are not available on Lenovo Support. Tell me if you had the same touch issue in Windows 8.1  and how you solved it. Thanks

I have been used to using an IPad whereby I can show a client a document on the screen and they can sign the document using an app. I can save the document with the signature. I have recently bought a HP Spectre notepad which has a touch screen but i am unable to work out whether or not I can do the same thing in tablet mode. I am seeking to have a document, for example a PDF and have the client sign it with a stylus as I used to on IPad Firstly, is this possible and if so what do I do to allow this please thanks

A:sign on the screen if a notebook in tablet mode

@Tonykeri Welcome to HP Support Forum. There are TWO things you need to check: 1. Does your Spectre support an active stylus ? Please check the following document      http://support.hp.com/au-en/document/c051668792. Which app do you use on the iPad ? You need a similar app (or same app if applicale) on your new Spectre which runs Windows 10. Regards.

It'll help to know what Lenovo computer you have and what OS you're using.

Got an inspiron 13 7000 yesterday and trying to use for first time.  When switching to tablet mode, the virtural/on-screen keyboard cannot be selected for use.  It is available in laptop mode (when I don't need it because of the large keyboard in front of me), but not table.

So, I called tech support and was told it was outside of regular tech and they'd transfer me to software tech.  They said there is normally a fee for this support, but since the computer is brand new, there would be not charge.  Software tech refused to help me unless I paid and they transferred me back to hardware tech who put me on hold, then hung up on me.

Wow, nice support on a brand new product!  They want me to pay to get their defective product to work?  I guess it would be cheaper for them to pay for a return shipping label, give me a full refund and sell this as a refurb at half of what they sold it to me for then for them to actually spend a few minutes on the phone trying to help. 

Before I return this and buy another brand, does anyone know how to get the on-screen keyboard to work on tablet mode?

My Spectre is only two weeks old and works excellently as a standard laptop.However I cannot get the screen to rotate when I select Tablet mode or flip it into the entertainment stand.All online research I can find are from people who either were using Win 8.1 and or updated to Win 10.Mine came with Win 10 pre-installed.None of the settings screens they advise to go to exist.I have also checked the registry and its set up correctly.Windows 10 did the anniversary update a couple of days into me starting to use it so I don't know IF the rotation issue was there from the beginning or not.
