Preferred Solution: turn off touch smart screen temporarily

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,My Envy 23 Smart Touch recently refused to start.  I search and did the recomended items to try and get it going again, such as:Diconnect all devices, disconnect power, hold power button for 5 sec, power on with F10 key, etc...  have performed this numerous times.No luck.  I don't see the BIOS.  There is power as the hard drive light does do a short light, and the DVD drive does make an initial sound.  Even tried a USN keyboard to see if that would help. I have even reset my CMOS with the jumper pins, checked the battery, unplug/plug hard drive and other cords that attach to the motherboard.  Have reseated the RAM - tried to also boot with just one chip in. Hard drive appears to be ok as I was able to browse its contects when I removed it and attached it to my smart TV (Partitions and folders). Still, no response to the PC other than the quick LED HD light coming on and the quick LED light on the DVD drive -screen remains blank.  This PC is just now 3 years old. Anything else to try?Thanks in advance.Jim

I have an HP all-in-one TouchSmart 320 PC, that is about 4 years old. About a month ago we went to turn it on and nothing happened. Originally, we thought it was the power source as the power supply box green light was flashing. We have tried 3 different cords and still nothing. Can anyone tell us what is going on? I do remember that before we tried to turn it on about a week prior to that I had shut down the computer, but it had updates so it was doing that but I never paid attention how it shut off, whether expected or unexpectedly. Can anyone help?!?

Hi
I've got a z20t-B-107. Lovely machine, upgraded to win 10, all working fine - I had to download a new Wacom driver to get the 'left-click' to work with the pen.

I'm using it in tablet mode to digitise some data points on a map, and to sketch with the pen. However, when I rest my hand on the screen it 'activates' the touch screen and makes things go crazy. I really need to be able to temporarily switch off the touch digitiser and have only the Wacom digitiser running, and if I can toggle it on/off somehow that would be useful. Otherwise i need to use the pen in a very unnatural position to avoid touching the screen with my hand.

I have a Samsung Galaxy Note which uses the Wacom type digitiser - it doesn't seem to suffer from this, as soon as it detects the pen near the screen it appear to switch off the touch part.

I would be grateful for any help - I've tried search engines but they only seem to give results about touch pads, and that's completely different...

Many thanks in advance

A:Portege Z20t - can I turn touch screen OFF?

Hi,

I use a Z20t too (but with Win8.1) and have the same problem. I have decided to switch off the touch complete. It is not a good solution, but a good working with OneNote is only with switching off the touch functionality possible.
Maybe this is a possible solution for you.
In Win8.1 I switched off the driver in the device manager.

I found the following steps here:
http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...d55591d?auth=1

1. Right-click and select "All Apps" at the lower right corner, then select Control Panel
2. Select Hardware and Sound
3. Select Device Manager
4. Select Human Interface Devices
5. From the list, look for the driver for the touch screen. This can be tricky since on my tablet they are all listed as "USB Input Device" and there are 3 of them. I found it by disabling and re-enabling one at a time until the touch screen stopped responding. You can also identify the touch screen by checking the Properties | Details and get the "Hardware Ids" then do a search online to see what the device is. In my case, the touch screen has the ID USB/VID_0EEF&PID_7302.
6. Once you know which is the touch screen, disable the driver and the touch screen should no longer work
Enable this device to make the touch screen work again.

Hi

Did you find out how to do that?
I think it?s not possible to disable the touch screen.
Did not find any info in user manual?. Maybe you can check the available BIOS settings. Power up the unit and press F2 to access the BIOS.
But to be honest I doubt that an on/off option would be available there.

I find the aero snap feature of windows 7 really useful, just not all the time. What I would love is for a feature where the 'snap' kicks in that I could press a key (ctrl, alt, shift something like that) that would temporarily disable snap so that I can position windows where I want.

Is there anyway of achieving something like this, either natively or through third party software?

It is easy to avoid hitting aero snap by not letting the mouse touch the edges of the screen.

A:can your firewall be temporarily turn off so that someone can get into your comp

Rather than fizzle the firewall malicious hackers would be far better off opening a random port for their communications, which would remain open. As to a malicious program doing this it would be a far more complicated scenario. i know webcrawlers constantly hit my work server firewall looking for open ports, but they would be unable to modify these settings from the inside if they did get in.

I am using a Yahoo mail account which downloads emails to Windows Live Mail on my desktop.

I am being spammed by Online Casino emails, and despite blocking the senders domain in WinLiveMail, it only lasts for a few days and then returns. Also done the same thing with selective blocking in Yahoo Mail account settings for SPAM blocking but same result.

I tried to contact Yahoo Mail tech support to find out if it's possible to turn off my main Yahoo Mail account for a week or two, as it is the one being spammed, but I get no reply. Apart from FAQ does anyone know how to email or live chat Yahoo Mail support?

I can't use the "Unregister" option in the incoming spam mail, or I'll get inundated with commercial emails.

Also tried various options like Mail Washer, etc.

Can anyone think of an option so I don't see these emails, short of closing the account and creating a new one. The thing is, this is my main account I've used in many online registrations.

The weird thing is I've never been on the web site of Online Casino and never use the main email account in emails or online, except for signing in to things like my ISP, Yahoo Mail, etc.
 

A:Temporarily turn off email account in Yahoo mail

Yahoo email filters are poor; they only support the model:
block email-id is [email protected]​and spammers continue to reach you by changing the user portion. Better email client software supports that as well as:
block email-id contains @domain​and regardless of the email user, that domain gets blocked

fyi: Thunderbird is my favorite email software

So now the 5-6 points is constant active, and I cannot login because the screen will not focus on the login field.  This means I cannot login to windows 10. I have also tried to start safe mode (turning off computer repeatly, so it starts up in safe mode), but here the touch screen driver is also active.  How can I disable the touch screen driver without login into windows 10?
