Preferred Solution: Touchscreen no longer works and no longer in drivers

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.)


I bought a used x230T a while ago. Initially the touchscreen worked fine but the motherboard failed after about a month, so I replaced it. After doing so, however, the screen no longer takes touch input of any kind and the webcam no longer works. Any attempts to reinstall drivers have not worked, and I sometimes get an error stating that no touch input hardware could be detected. I've also tried unplugging and replugging the ZIF connectors many times. Does anyone have any advice for other steps I could take or others things I could try? I got the tablet model specifically because of the touchscreen so it's been disappointing to go without it. Thanks for any tips you may have.

I've been using my u920t for almost 10 mont and i really like that i can still use the touchscreen when the keyboard ist out.

But a couple of days ago it stopped working. I don't remeber changing anything.

Windows now tells me the screen is not a touchscreen.
Once i put the screen down and go into tablet mode everything works fine.
Tablet PC setting in the control panel also disappear once the keyboard ist out..

I tried reinstalling the driver.
I also did a windows 8 refresh (no backup unfortunately)

Any ideas?

Thank you for your help.

A:Satellite U920T - when I slide out the keyboard touchscreen no longer works

> Tablet PC setting in the control panel also disappear once the keyboard ist out..
I assume this should be OK since the tablet PC settings should be available only if the notebook is used in ?tablet mode?

The point is that this notebook can be used in three different modes.
1) tablet mode -> the keyboard and touchpad are pulled in and only touchscreen can be used
2) laptop mode -> the keyboard and touchpad are pulled out
3) photography mode -> keyboard is pulled in but touchpad is pulled out and can be used as well as the touchscreen.

I?m not quite sure if the ?orientation lock button? (on the left side) would affect the touchscreen but fact is that using this button the automatic rotation of the screen orientation can be enabled or disabled.
If you are operating the computer in laptop or in photography mode, the screen orientation will always be in Landscape mode.

Please check also if the touch display has been calibrated properly
Go to control panel (win key + x control panel) -> Tablet PC settings

Here you will find the first tab called ?Display?
Click on ?Setup? button to start the setup where you could identify the touchscreen
In bottom area called ?display options? you could calibrate the touch display.

Long list of items that have crept up on this laptop after using it for several months. . . . The touchscreen no longer works.   I have reinstalled drivers over and over again, deleted and let windows choose the driver, and have tried everything I can think of to get it working. Yet it no longer recognizes touch at all. Bamboo Ink styles works just fine, uninstalling the associated drivers did not change anything. It slowly started to work intermittently and then just quit all together. Keyboard keys just stop working  So far some seemingly random LOWERCASE letters stop working, if I hold shift I get an uppercase just fine, or if I hit capslock it will give me the uppercase of whatever letter is not working for that day, so the button itself is fine. This has happened on several different keys completely randomly for no apparent reason what so ever. The only way to fix the issue once it occurs is to stop what you are doing and restart the computer. . . Doing so might fix it for a week or an hour. In the middle of typing or clicking, or doing anything at all it decides to "sleep"    I can be in the middle of typing something, moving the mouse to click on something, or using the stylus to take notes and without warning it will enter sleep/hibernation mode. . .  I have updated the drivers to the latest that are available, I also updated the BIOS to the latest recommended to see if that might help solve some of the issues. So far no lu... Read more

Ever since last night the audio on my computer doesnt work at all. I installed the drivers to my labtec webcam and ever since i cant get any sound at all. The sound drivers my computer uses are Realtek Digital High Definition Audio and i tried to reinstall them but windows gave me an error message saying the drivers weren't by a recognized publisher and it wouldnt let me continue. I cant do a system restore because there's no restore points set on my computer apparently

I'm not very good at explaining so sorry if this is a bit vague but any help would be appreciated.

A:Audio no longer works after installing webcam drivers

Go to control panel and then to sound. Scroll trough the tabs.
Make sure the "Sound play back" is set to Realtek.

My computer's touch screen isn't working and it's like it no longer recognises it has a touch screen. It stopped working after I switched out of tablet mode. These are the things I have tried: * Restarting* resetting to a previous point* windows update* uninstalling the HID-Compliant Touch Screen driver and restarting to re-install it - the problem was that this driver was 'hidden' and was saying error 45 - the hardware is not connected to the computer. It didn't reinstall properly* A hard reset, reinstalling windows 10 - now the HID-Compliant Touch Screen driver isn't there at all, not even hidden* A UEFI diagnostics test - there was no option to click on 'touch screen' as a component, as the the computer doesn't think it has a touch screen When I search for calibrate touch screen, or tablet PC mode, neither of these options are there anymore (they were just a couple of days ago). I'm not sure what has happened but I don't seem to have any of the right drivers or software for the touchscreen and the computer just doesn't seem to recognise it has a touch screen. When I flip the screen around now the keys also don't lock, as though it doesn't recognise it's in tablet mode.

The computer recognizes that the screen is touch capable when I try to calibrate, but theres no response to my touch. It worked fine yesterday, but the day before that I lost the touch capabilty aswell. Nothing has really happened to my Laptop to make it change so suddenly. Any ideas?

A:Ideapad S415 touchscreen no longer working

To resolve the touchscreen issue follow below steps.1. Open Device Manager and uninstall all that start with HID- under Human interface devices.2. Restart the system and see if that works. Also perform 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 check now if touchscreen is working fine.

My partner purchased a Satellite S50t-B probably 5-6 months ago, and everything was working perfectly, up until she had some windows updates that happened, and now the HID touch compliant drivers are seemingly disabled in device manager?

The touchscreen is no longer working, and i've just about exhausted all options i could think of.

I've tried reinstalling windows, applying any and all updates through service center, i cannot find any drivers for the touch screen on the support website downloads section, and the bios etc is all up to date.

I was hoping someone could shed some light on how to proceed with this issue, given the main reason she purchased it was the touch screen feature.

Thanks, Keegan

A:Satellite S50t-B touchscreen no longer working

I have no idea what system you have installed, but if the notebook was equipped with the touchscreen, additional drivers for touchscreen are not necessary.
If touchscreen would work properly, the Windows (Win 8.1) should detect it automatically.

What Satellite S50t-B-ooo do you have excatly?
From my point of few the notebook should be set to factory settings just to check if its really an software related issue... so I'm wondering why you don't use the HDD recovery or recovery medium to set the notebook back to factory settings?

Today water spilt on top of my case and I believe it got inside of the case. After cleaning up the mess, I tried to start my computer. It started fine so I had a sigh of relief. When I tried to connect to a web page, it would not load. It would say network took too long to respond. I can still connect to my router page. The network icon in my tray (the 2 computers) look fine. I then tried to move the computer to my router and connect it with a different cable, same issue. I tried to directly connect the modem to the computer and it said limited or no connectivity.

I thought the on-board LAN got fried from the water, so I went out and bought a lan card for a PCI slot. I have the same issues with this.

Any idea what is causing this? Is this a motherboard short? Do I need a new motherboard entirely?

I'm just really confused as to how it still starts up if it is a short and why I can still access the router page. I hope someone can help me, thanks a lot!

System W8, I.E. 10. Thursday 14 July suddenly found I could not get any web page, the Google ?circle? just keeps spinning. The only thing I can do is close the page, sometimes cannot do that and have to power off.
Tried using Mozilla and it seems to work OK. Having done searches it seems all support for I.E. 8, 9 and 10 was terminated at the beginning of the year. Is this the cause of my problem? I was put off using Mozilla when I found when you downloaded just 1 file and scanned with NIS, it showed total items scanned as 2 files! Wondered what the extra file is? Same file downloaded with I.E. 10 showed 1 file.
Should I upgrade to W8.1 and I.E.11? Are there any major disadvantages in doing this? Do you lose all your software and downloaded data on the hard drive during the process? Got data backed up to 2 external hard drives; I just wondered.
Thanks for any help you may offer.

For a couple years now I've connected my dell notebook computer with windows vista to my samsung tv display. Then the other night, all of a sudden while watching a movie, it lost connection and I haven't been able to get it back up since.

My computer actually detects the TV. I know this because I go into NVIDIA command center to select the different options. I still get nothing displayed on the TV when I select mirror or extend.

I've tried everything within display settings. I've also updated my NVIDIA driver. I've looked into the device manager and system restore (can't restore because all restore points are after the date this problem occurred). Still doesn't work. I know its not the TV or the VGA cable because a different dell laptop works fine with it. Its just plug and play (like mine use to be).

I'm not sure what else to try except a complete windows re-install (definitely hoping to avoid that!) Help. Thanks!

A:vga out to tv no longer works

I don't have any ideas at the moment except to say that I doubt this is a problem that would be solved by a reinstallation, so that may be a painful waste of time. Better do some more investigating first.

Did it just drop off immediately, or were there any "symptoms" at all?

Thoroughly check out the TV end, too, and make sure some "input" setting didn't get changed by a random press of a remote button.

I bought an HP Pavilion 2 years ago. AMD A-10 proc with 8gig mem. Worked fine for 6 months. HDMI quit working. Started using VGA. Bought Seagate USB 3.0 2 TByte for backup. Worked fine. 18 months later MSI MS-7778 motherboard started giving me trouble on start up. I'd push the power button and the computer would lock up before getting to the point where I could enter 'setup'. I'd restart a few times and it would work okay from there. The problem kept getting worse over time until I would have to try to restart 50 to 100 times. It finally got to the point where it wouldn't boot up at all, no matter how many times I tried. I bought a new ASUS mother board and that problem was solved. But, the USB 3.0 ports would not work. Took the board back and bought the upgraded ASUS A88XM-A mother board. Still, I can't get the rear panel USB 3.0 ports to work as USB 3.0. They only work as 2.0. The front panel USB 3.0 ports don't work at all. I have downloaded the latest drivers from ASUS and re-installed them several times. I've also tried an USB 3.0 thumb drive in all ports. It isn't recognized by any of the ports. As a side note, the front panel card reader no longer works either.

Any help would be appreciated.

So my laptop is about a year old and aside from having to switch out a bad graphics card about a month ago, it's never had any real problems. This morning, though, I noticed my laptop didn't seem to be booting correctly. It would display the HP logo as always, then show a blinking cursor which just sat there. Normally, my laptop boots in a little under a minute, and that cursor is only onscreen for about 3 seconds. Now, the cursor remains for 2 minutes or so, after which the computer continues booting. Overall boot time is now 3 minutes or more. This last time I restarted it, the screen was totally blank for three minutes, after which the vista logo suddenly popped up followed by my desktop.

The other odd thing is that windows can no longer recognize my DVD/CD drive. It seems the same as always physically, at least as far as I can tell, but windows does not seem to know it's there; it's gone from both My Computer and device manager, and nothing happens when I insert a disc (even though it's set to autoplay.) The drive light still lights up and it still pops out like normal, however. I played a DVD on it just last night with no problems. Earlier that day I had burned a DVD, but that's something I do often and it's never posed any issues; the program I use is ConvertXtoDVD 3. It can't detect the drive either now.

Hi. For the past two months I have been running a wireless network via a Linksys router in my house. I'm using a Dell Inspiron 7200.

For the most part all has been fine. However, from time to time, even as I surfed the web I would find my connection was no longer working. Most of the time I'd just wait a minute or two and it'd restore itself. Sometimes I'd have to manually disconnect from the network and re-connect. It wasn't much more than an annoyance that happened about once a day.

As time went by, however, the disconnections would occur more frequently. Last week it got to the point where I was being booted offline multiple times per session. The router was never unplugged. Resetting it didn't correct the problem either.

I would begin having to restart my computer to reconnect to my network, but that began to fail as well. I finally deduced the problem lay with the network card. I tried to run the Windows "Repair" option, but all it did was freeze it up once disabling the card. Now I cannot connect to my network at all. I tried installing a new driver, but 40 minutes later it was still "installing". The icon at the taskbar often shows Windows "searching for network address" for minutes on end. Short of buying a new network card, any repair ideas?

A:Network no longer works

sounds like your card got deepfried or something..

personally, i would see no repair option except for soldering on the card, but that's not something to do yourself if you don't know what to do..

my advice: get a new card.. they cost next to nothing nowadays.

hp pavilion laptop ---- win7 ---- kaspersky security

i downloaded switchsetup.exe from nch, a sound file converter. kaspersky asks - do you want to allow this program to make changes to your computer? i said yes, believing switchsetup.exe to be legit. (i think i got it as a recommend from this forum some time ago)

ever since then, the mouse's right-click function has stopped working. its a real drag, i can no longer check the size of a folder or rename a file by right-clicking on it. i have to open the folder, highlight all its files then ---> File on the Menu line ---> Properties or highlight the file, File---> properties--->Rename. really irritating.

has anyone experienced this?

am thinking i will backup all my data then roll back (once i figure out how to do that) to a date preceding the switchsetup.exe download.

would this be a reasonable way to go? or is there an easier way to regain right-click functionality?

It seems my Flash no longer works. When I go to a site that uses Flash, there is a blank screen where the Flash player is located. I am using IE8 (32 bit).
When I go to download Flash from the Adobe site, I get an error that there was a GUI error. Any ideas what is happening? BTW, I assumed there was a virus or something similar, so did a scan using MS Security Essentials and it did find an unrelated threat that I removed.

My computer no longer goes into Standby mode when I select Start - Turn Off Computer - Standby, where the Power Supply powers down. This happened seeral months ago when I was getting a glitch at startup that eventually was traced to a defective power supply. I put in an undersized loaner (350W) until I could buy and install a new PS. I assumed the inability to go to Standby was a power supply issue. Today I installed a new Hiper 530W PS and still cannot get it to go to standby mode. I have checked the Power Options in Control Panel and under Power Schemes - System Standby, Never is the option selected. I am going to try to select "After 5 Hours" and see if that affects the Standby mode.

Any suggestions would be appreciated

A couple of days ago my headset was working fine.
I unplugged my printer and my speakers started buzzing. I plugged in some other things, but nothing to do with the computer, which is why I unplugged the printer.
I put the headset mic jack in and tried to record but the only thing is recorded was the loud buzzing of the speakers.
The headphones work fine. The speakers now are fine. No settings were changed. However, the mic now doesn't work - no sound is recorded. The mic doesn't seem to be on (there is no way of turning it off on the headset itself), but the computer recognises when the jack has been plugged in.
The mic is enabled under recording devices.
I don't know what's gone wrong. How can I get my mic working again?

A:Headset mic no longer works

I put the headset mic jack in and tried to record but the only thing is recorded was the loud buzzing of the speakers.
The mic is enabled under recording devices.

The only thing I could think of by this, since the mic is enabled by recording devices, right-click the external mic - Properties - Listen tab - under Playback through devices, choose default playback. Apply -  Ok.

The sound no longer works on my DELL DIMENSION, WIN ME setup. The speakers work on my other computer, all connections are ok. I recently cleaned out some files and probably removed the wrong one. Sys restore stopped working a month ago so that is not available. Any suggestions?

I accidentally installed realalternative, thinking I was getting an rm to avi converter. When I discovered it changed ALL my file associations I uninstalled it, but then found out that realplayer itself no longer worked. The clicked files just would not open at all. I tried to uninstall realplayer to reinstall it, thru controlpaneladd-remove progs, but got an error msg that an uninstall dll was missing. I reinstalled anyway, the free realplayer, and it seemed to go all right, the player even opened up at the end of the install. A bit later when I tried opening some .rm vids, they still wouldn't open. I reinstalled one more time, this time even getting the msg "prog already exists-installover existing file?" So I did, it went all right, but my real files won't open. I am stumped. Any advice? I COULD use the realalternative to view these files I suppose, but I really want the old realplayer (I need it to convert .rm to .avi with another prog I just got.) Thanks in advance.

After the last update from MS, my sound no longer works. I rolled back to the last restore point, and then to the one just prior to that. Still doesn't work. I've changed no drivers in a long, long time.


A:Sound no longer works

What is the status of your sound "card" in the Device Manager? Does it show working OK or does it have an error code.

If it is shown as working OK, RIGHT click on the entry for the sound device and then LEFT click "Uninstall" DO NOT check the box to also uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound.

Hello there, only recently my windows live messenger stopped working. I definitely think it has to do with my firewall identifying Windows Explorer as something to block. When I click WLM to start up, it shows in my taskbar for a millisecond then disappears. I have tried restoring my computer to a past date (a day ago actually) and it worked fine. But again today it has stopped working, so I guess it's an update? Any help appreciated, thanks!
