Hello,
you can save all your personal data and re-install the O.S. again, or try to go to the computer properties and check if the touch screen drivers are there , if not you need to install it.

Touch screen will not work on laptop


Check all drivers are loaded for the touchscreen interface, if they are remove them and re-install.

If that doesn't solve your issue I would check the cable that connects the touchscreen and that the touchscreen is fitted correctly.

Touch screen not working


Touchscreen computers and handheld devices are the newest wave of technological gadgets as of 2010.

While these devices function impressively, they can malfunction just like any other technical device.
Troubleshooting the touchscreen is simple and often will correct any issues.

Identify how the screen is behaving.
A touchscreen will malfunction in one of two areas--sensitivity or position.

If you touch the screen and the cursor is not centered on your finger, this is a position error and requires recalibration of the screen.

If you touch the screen and it does not register your touch without pressing hard, this is a sensitivity error.

If you touch the screen and nothing happens, this can be a sensitivity error or a malfunctioning screen.

Calibrate the screen.
For all main errors, calibrating the screen will correct the issue.

Every device has a different method of calibration but can usually be found under a "Tools" or "Diagnostics" menu option.

Reload the device.
For handheld devices, remove the battery and let the device rest for no less than five minutes.

For computer or computer system devices, power down the device, disconnect the touchscreen device from the computer and remove any power cords to it.

Allow the device to rest for five minutes.
Reattach the device or reinstall the battery and power up the device.

If issues persist, reload the software for the device.
For handheld devices, do a full wipe of the device and return it to factory specifications.

For add-on devices to a computer or computer system, uninstall the device and reinstall the drivers.

If reloading, registering or calibrating the device does not work, consult the manufacturer for possible warranty replacement options.

or if you are runnung windows 7
Connect the screen to a computer running Windows 7 using the supplied USB cable and a cable for the video signal.
Ensure the cables are properly connected.

If the screen does not respond to touch, please visit our knowledge base article USB detection problems in Windows.

or you might use the system to restore to resolve the problem

You can use the System Configuration utility to perform a system restore.There are three possible restore points:System checkpoints that Windows schedules

Manual restore points that you specify with the System Configuration utility
Installation restore points that occur before you install a program or a service

you can use the system checkpoints or the installation restore points to restore your computer's settings to a date when it operated correctly.
This may also help determine the cause of the configuration error.

To perform a system restore, follow these steps:

1.Click Start, click Run, type msconfig, and then click OK.

2.On the General tab, click Launch System Restore.

3.Select Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next.

4.Calendar dates in bold are possible restore points. Click the most recent one to view system restore information.

5.Select a system checkpoint or an installation restore point, and then click Next.

6.Close all other programs.

7.To start the system restore, click Next.

8.Your computer restarts.Repeat steps 1 through 8 until you fix your configuration issue.

Samsung SGH A897 mobile touch screen not responding to touch Incoming calls are operable


Did you try restarting the phone...??? If it didn't work try resetting everything. And even if that is not working then I would say it's probably a hardware error. You would have replace your touch panel. Could cost you a little bit. Rush to nearest samsung service center and get it done.
And also bear to put a screen gaurd always. I would not advise you to use touchscreen phones without screen gaurds.
Good luck

My touchscreen is not working after i instal windows 7


Hi.
Based on the information you have provided, it seems that the issue is due to the Driver for the Touchscreen sensors.
As you have changed the Operating System, it is required to install the Touchscreen Device Driver for the Windows 7 Operating System.
Once the Driver is installed, the Touchscreen Device should work normally.
Please let me know the exact Model # of the Computer, so that I can provide you the link to download the Touchscreen Driver.
Hope this helps.
Please feel free to contact for further information and assistance.
