Hp pavillon tx1000 12.1 inch touch screen cursor stays at bottom left hand conrner


Clean the screen with a clean soft cotton cloth is the step #1

Step 2:
SEE FULL instruction HERE

Calibrate the touch screen
The command buttons and fields are displayed on the screen image at specific pixel points. To initiate a response, the touch screen interface needs to recognize exactly where a fingertip or pen touches the screen relative to the pixel position of the display. Each user has a slightly different hand-eye coordination response. Calibrating the touch screen allows the interface to compensate between where the program is expecting a touch and where the touch actually occurs. To calibrate the touch screen, place the tablet notebook in the desired orientation and do the following actions.
  1. Click or tap Start > Control Panel > Tablet PC Settings to open the Table PC Settings window.
  2. On the General tab, select the option to display the menus in either the Right-handed or Left-handed position.
  3. On the General tab, select the desired screen orientation from the drop-down menu, and click or tap Calibrate . Follow the instruction to touch the screen at the specified points. Repeat this calibration action for all four of the screen orientations, then click or tap Apply .
  4. On the Handwriting Recognition tab, select the Use the handwriting personalization option.
  5. At a later time, you can return to review the Go to Pen and Input Devices and Go to Input Panel Settings options to make using the touch screen to control programs and input text easier and more accurate.




Compare your version of the firmware to the latest one at HP offical site HERE

Always get the latest firmware to avoid problem.

Always keep the screen clean!

HP tx1000 touchscreen won't work


These TX1000's have their fair share of issues, and this one is the most costly (potentially) to resolve.

There are two, and only two, possibilities for why the digitizer in the LCD isnt working.

1) On many occasions, I'd estimate about 40% of the time, there's a little cable inside the LCD housing and behind the LCD itself that connects to a daughter-board, which then is cabled to the mainboard. This little cable sometimes comes loose, and a simple reconnect will resolve the stylus pen issues.

2) The digitizer in the LCD has failed, no separate LCD+digitizer purchase, oh no no no....Gotta get the whole damn assembly. Part# 441106-001 at roughly $550 exchange from HP.

Calibration of touch Screen is off - Can't re-calibrate.


I had the same problem, also on a HP Pavilion tx1000.
I solved it by using the driveres from eeti.
Now the pen works great and I'm a happy camper. :)

Tablet Pen gone wierd


Well, if the pen is messed up I'm not sure there is a ton you can do. You can go to control panel and wherever your hardware settings are (might be different with different depending on if you have xp or vista) and find the tablet pen settings and look at those. Other than that, I don't know what kind of tablet you have but you can normally order a new one. I don't think they are all that expensive, if I remember correctly. If the laptop is pretty new, you might try calling the company and telling them the problem and if they can't tell you how to fix it, they will sometimes send you a new one for free. Hope that helps.

Gateway tablet screen does not respond to pen.


I have a CX2620, got it in May 2006. Got my first pen replaced not long after that, actually within a month or two (wouldn't calibrate). Now the second one doesn't work at all, I can't tell if it's the pen or the tablet itself, except that the mouse will draw in the tablet spaces. I kept the old one as a spare, but neither click, draw, nada.
