I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

My touch screen function stopped working about a year after buying this laptop. One day it was working fine, and the next it just stopped working. 
I have spent hours on google trying to find a solution to this issue and nothing seems to be working. In fact, under system information, it says 'No Pen and Touch Input is available for this display.' when I know full well I've been using the touch screen function for over a year just fine.  
I have another laptop, same make and model just bought it 3 months later. I've been to the Device Manager under Human Interface Devices where it is supposed to have 'HID Compliant touch Screen' there is nothing there that has anything to do with a Touch Screen.
Can someone please help me with this? I payed for the touch screen function and Its driving me nuts to not be able to use it.

Hi NoFear89,Can you Private Message me your Service Tag on the system? Or at least let me know the model number and OS the system is running. Also, does your other system show the touch screen in Device Manager correctly, or are both not showing this?Best regards,Brad

Here's the problem. On 21 June 2011, my laptop was infected with a malware called "Mal_Otorun1". I have trend micro security and only trend micro security and it kept popping up every couple of seconds to warn me of the otorun1 affecting two files in my system called D:/autorun.inf and R:/autorun.inf and that the threat had been removed. After I closed the warning, it still pops up seconds later to inform me about the same threat in the same file. It has been doing so for almost half an hour and stopped after i installed windows defender from the net. When i review the log of trend security (clocking in to 824 threats stopped, in total), i found out that one of the infection was a trojan horse virus with the signature "TROJ_GEN.R4FB1CI", probably downloaded from the malware, and three cookie with the signature "Cookie_2o7" which affected the following three files: "serving-sys.com", "2o7.net" and "msnportal.112.2o7.net". Trend security removed every threat except the trojan virus and only denied it's access. Three days later, I slowly lost function of my right button touch pad, and now it's gone completely. Through advice from the net, I downloaded malewarebytes and did a full scan and found two "Trojan Agents" in my registry values, I removed the trojan virus and restart my laptop but the right button function is still lost.

Hi, I have a lenovo M92z touchscreen all in one computer with Windows 7 64-bit. I have updated the bios to the latest version (9NKT73A). It is about 5-7 years old and no longer under warranty. I have tried:installing this touchscreen driver (http://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds029324)using the windows troubleshooterusing the device manager to scan for hardware changessearching the device manager for a HID-compliant Touchscreen (it is not there)Windows UpdatesTurning off Tablet PC Components Windows features and then turning them back on after a restart.Flashing the Bios to the current version aboveI'm at a loss. I didn't think the touchscreen hardware would go bad before the other components so I'm very much inclined to think it is somehow software related. It acts as though it never has had touch functionallity. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!

I have read through every thread on similar topics, and tried every possible fix. I have rebooted, rebooted into Safe Mode, unplugged the battery, run the computer to 0%, booted a different OS, unplugged the CMOS and discharged all records, checked the BIOS settings, uninstalled every conceivable USB driver, and run every dialog and troubleshooter Windows has to offer. My issue is with a Lenovo U430 Touch (i7-4500U) running Windows 8.1 64-bit. It was purchased about two years ago. It has the original Windows installation on a hybrid drive, and the only modifications since purchase were a M.2 SSD and a RAM upgrade to 8GB, none of which coincided with this issue. The two USB 2.0 ports on the right side of the laptop (next to the charging port) no longer function. They will charge "dumb" devices, like batteries, but will not recognize USB devices. For instance, on Android devices, they believe that they're being charged from "AC Charger" rather than a "USB Port." However, Windows notices certain events related to them. When I plug a flash drive into the lower USB2 port, Windows gives the following error message: "Problem Detected with Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Request Failed), and on the "View details" page, the General tab shows the following:  Device type: Universal Serial Bus ControllersManufacturer: (Standard USB Host Controller)Location: Port_#0004.Hub_#0003

I am running windows seven and my laptop (a 10 inch acer aspire one) shut down to load some changes after an auto up date. It automatically shut down without prompting me and after it restarted I could no longer use the scroll function on the side of my touch pad. Now I cant scroll at all but half the time I get the little gray circle that signals that the scroll part of the pad is in use but it still does not move the bar on the side of the page. I am not familiar enough with W7 to know where to look to fix this problem. Please help or let me know if there is any other info needed to help me fix this problem.

A:problem with touch pad scroll function after auto updat

Hi Phil.
You will have to go to Acer.com and find the support for your netbook.
I'm guessing it is an AOD250 with a 10.1" screen. That is what I have.
You will need to find the software for your touchpad and rein stall.
Here is the information I think you will need.

Hi all,
I just bought a new Dell Inspiron 7537 with full HD touch screen / 16gb ram / 1tb hdd / Nvidia GT750 and this laptop is just lovely, though I dont suffer from the usual wifi issue, I did changed the wifi card into 7260 AC model and it does fly! got it for 28$ off ebay.
Anyway, there's only 1 thing that bother me much, right after the initial setup, I've run through the updates and after restart I noticed that I've lost the touch support function. Even when checked on the PC and Devices info page, suddenly doesnt state my laptop has touch support. I've been through the net for many days looking for drivers and this issue but none came close to my case.
The monitor driver stated as generic PNP monitor? and I couldnt find any compatible driver for it. I've look at control panel setting and there is no option for pen / touch input too.
Not sure where and what went wrong. Attached is 2 print screen of my system. For security reason, I've cropped the product ID. Should there is someone from Dell require those, I'd be happy to send private message with all the details.
For my part, I've done all diagnosed with dell website + software but keep saying my system is correct and no problem with anything. Though I dont really fancy of using the touch screen, it would be nice to know that my laptop has it and its working.

Many thanks

Hi,
I am a Dell Inspiron 7537 user and also encountering the same touchscreen problem plus the wifi would sometimes go on and off (based on the wifi icon).
I already contacted the Dell tech support via chat and unfortunately, I would have to return the laptop to Best Buy for replacement or repair. The problem is I live in the Philippines and Dell does not have any tech support here.
The problem only started when Dell and Microsoft sent me software auto updates a few weeks back.
Are there any updates regarding the issue?

If I rotate my Yoga 2 Pro nothing happens, too. If I open the device manager, my HID-compliant touch screen is not visibile. If I press "show hidden devices" and select the HID-compliant touch screen (it is shown then), it is listed as "not connectet" - error code 45. But the screen itself is working. If I search for drivers, it says everything is fine. But the HID-compliant touch screen is not connected...?! How in the world I can tell my Yoga 2 Pro that there is a touch function in my new screen?! So, I am a little confused about what to do with it!

My ENVY m6-AQ003 x360 touch screen function clicks itself. It clicks really fast in a straight vertical line. I havn't used it in a couple days so when I turned it on and it started clicking my first thought was the mouse was acting up or the touch pad. so I unplugged the mouse and restarted the computer. It continued to do it after the restart so I tried to turn off the touchpad. But the screen kept clicking before I could. Although it has stopped after i played around with it. It seems to keep doing it from time to time a few clicks. I know it is the touch screen function after I realized that the touch screen makes circles where you click and the mouse and touch pad don't. I hope there is a quick fix so I dont' have this problem when I travel in a few days.

Now, I use the trackpoint to navigate.I tried to update the touchpad drivers, which were already the "newest".

I would be very pleased if anyone could help me out here. TV out has no meaning if I cannot watch movies.

At first I could deal with not being able to run Windows Messenger Live (well not my sister anyway, since she was the one with the issue on her login), but now I can't seem able to use the 7.5 version.

When it is run, I find it rather difficult to interact with the program. I only bet on knowing that the text will appear soon enough, that my email will be typed in. When I make mistakes entering it, it takes rather long to fix it. It is sort of like writing a letter and then finally looking down at it to see what you have written. Even putting the cursor over the program makes it disappear (but it functions like it is there).
Anything past that, and I get issues just signing in, in a matter of a second. So that means it can't be a firewall (I use ZoneAlarm), because I have checked through that. Anyway, you get the resulting attachments 01 and 02. On the second one is where I am sort of confused. I tried using Repair, but that did nothing since I can do that a million times, and that would make no change. Something must be wrong with the host file. Somewhere along the lines I got what is now in the text file.

I have tried reinstalling the program (even from a new downloaded file), but that doesn't work. Also is a new .NET update on the computer something to think about? This happened a good while after I had it installed.

So how can I resolve this issue?

I'm not certain if I'm posting this in the correct forum. Hope so. Very weird problem and have spent 2 days trying to work it out.
I have the Adobe Flash Player ... I have BBC and ITV Player.

A week ago we were able to go to ITV-1, and watch two episodes of an outstanding show called Downton Abbey. This is 24 hours after broadcast and is a catch up service. No problem. But suddenly, when trying to get the third episode, nothing.
It just will not open. Called ITV who suggested that perhaps I should uninstall and then reinstall Adobe Flash. I did. Still no joy. Cleared cache and history and all the things we're always told to do on a regular basis. Defragged ... cleared disk ...
even did a restore to another date. Nothing worked. So I'm stumped. I have broadband and oh by the way ... I see below that it says under system info that my AV isn't updated. Well, it sure is.
Sorry to be long winded but don't know another way to explain the problem here. The site and show in question play on other people's PCs, so the problem has to be here in mine. Funny thing tho, I can still get BBC-TV, no problem.

Any ideas out there?

Have you checked to see if the search function works in SafeMode?

Have you installed any updates to the current software like your AV program for instance?

Anyway, the first thing I'd try would be to run SFC from a command prompt within Windows XP and see what happens

sfc /scannow

BTW, in reference to the services, I doubt that's an issue. Windows XP will start a service if it's needed, regardless of whether you've disabled it.

After the UA upgrade I see several errors in the Event Viewer. In the past you could get more info by clicking the Event Log Online Help. You may still do this, but you arrive on an advertisement page of MS. Do they skip this source of information?

I have about 600 gigs of storage space and windows search doesn’t work so I’m a bit frustrated at this problem.

When I run windows search function I get 2-3 recently created files and nothing else. The process of getting these results take less than a second sometimes and it doesn’t comb threw my folder structure the way it used to. I have indexing on and I’ve had indexing off but this does not effect the results. I’m not sure when this problem first popped up but I assume it was about 4-5 months ago when my step dad changed my network settings because of some bad advice from some tech support who didn’t know what kind of system I had.

I’ve tried using “Windows Desktop Search” and that didn’t work either so I uninstalled that. I don’t want to use 3rd party search programs just because the windows search has worked fine for me so far with the exception to this. Any help is appreciated

Thanks.

Hello.

My Toshiba laptop does not let any of the function keys operate properly. When I press one, nothing happens. I have also tried holding down the FN key, to no avail. I thought this was a Toshiba issue, but after multiple customer support "experiences" who told me that the operating system was corrupted, I think it may be a Windows 8.1 issue. This happened under Windows 8 too. Toshiba has a keyboard driver for this laptop model for Windows 7, but not 8.1. Is this a common problem with Windows 8.1, and if so, can you provide a solution or fix to this issue? (All drivers are up to date and function key support is enabled in the BIOS)

Laptop: Toshiba c55-a5285.

Thank you very much,

wws

Hey there!

I had a problem with the Accupoint, it moved alone, so I desactivated.
But the problem is that I also desactivated the two buttoms above the pad.

Is there a any way to repair the AccuPoint or desactivate it without desactivating the buttons?

I have a Toshiba Portege Z30-A with Windows 10

Thanks!

Accupoint or Trackpoint

I recently upgraded my 3 computers to Windows 8.1. Only 1 PC (INTEL) is working as it should. The other 2 PC's are AMD based and the search function is acting funny. When I search it gives my the results, but when I click on says I'm looking for DEVICES AND PRINTERS and I search "printers", it gives my the result. If I click on DEVICES AND PRINTERS tab it doesn't respond, but when I click on say my Canon printer's link to MY PRINTER it responds. I ran SFC/SCANNOW and also DISM (Micorsoft actually ran it) and nothing changed. It sometimes locks me onto the Meto screen and I have to reset the PC to get back to my normal Desktop. When it does that non of the Metro tiles works. Micorsoft technician also tried to create a new user account which comes out blank and when creating another account, as soon as you log into the account it immediately signs out of it and don't allow you access. I tried to refresh the pc, but the frustrating part is, it asks you to choose a keyboard layout, but disables all USB and PS ports. Now how do I choose a keyboard layout, unless I have a touch screen. Microsoft really didn't think this trough. Is there anybody that perhaps now how to get the searh to work. Oh I do have searchindex.exe in my system32 folder and in services I stop and restarted Windows Search, but still no change.

A:Search function in Windows 8.1 doesn't work as it should

Problem solved. After Microsoft technicians tried everything and my PC crashed I decided to just redo. Then I found out that a program called Wisecare 365 that I was running on my Windows 8 PC caused all the problems. It went and deleted registry and other files that windows 8.1 need to operate with. So it's no longer on my PC and so far Windows 8.1 is running fine.

Hi there,  I'm using a T480 ThinkPad with Windows 10, which has a built-in HDMI output port that works very well with my standard external LCD display (an old Samsung model with a regular DVI to HDMI adapter). However, when I try to use the HDMI port of my Lenovo USB-C hub (c109) instead, I found that the dispaly is recognized by the operating system but cannot really receive any signal. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks in advance for any response.
