First of all try shutting down the computer completely, and unplugging it from the wall for about 5 minutes. Sometimes this is enough to reset the internal usb devices. This computer gets very hot, and can drop devices when overheating. If that doesn't work then try plugging in a wired usb mouse, then do a rollback using system restore to the last known working state. Also think about any recently installed programs and how they may have affected your computers sanity. Does the touchscreen still make sound when pressed? The nextwindow touchscreen should always work, even if not properly calibrated it should always be on, because its controllers are hardware, unlike other touchscreens that use software to calibrate. Check the device manager to see if any HID compliant mouse devices are listed at all. There should be at least two, one for the screen and one for the mouse.

Plug another monitor into the external video output. If that has the same problem, then at least you know it's not your original screen thats the problem. It may be the graphics card, motherboard or cable, all of which are difficult to find second-hand.

Message tells me CPU fan has do I find another one to buy? this is on a 1Q-770 touch smart all in one PC

It's an I ('eye') Q 770.

With tact and diplomacy:

1) Do you know how to open this puppy up? How to remove the Access Covers?

2) Do you know about Anti-Static Precautions?

3) Do you have experience with working on laptops, or at least desktop computers?

Make a mistake here, and you'll have an expensive doorstop.

1A) How to Remove the Access Covers,

More information can be obtained in the download (Free) manual - Parts Replacement Instructions.
But only a small modicum of info.

Left-click on HP TouchSmart Desktop PCs - Parts Replacement Instructions.

{This is a PDF file. The computer you are on now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files. After you click on the above named link, you may see a blank page for a few seconds. The file is downloading in the background, please be patient }

{ Motherboard Specifications:
Not current to the stated problem, but could be a world of information for you in the future. }

2A) Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static will fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.

Computer unplugged from power before you work on it. Also hold the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of Five seconds.
Let go of the Power On button. Do this procedure 2 more times.

Haven't worked on the TouchSmart series of HP computers. Cannot tell you if the frame inside is made of Steel.
Experience in the computer repair business, and logic, dictates it is not.
I suspect the framework is Aluminum, as is used in laptops.

With a desktop computer you would make sure it is unplugged from power, then touch the metal frame of the open computer case, to relieve your body of Static. (Should you leave your computer in the middle of repair, touch the metal frame again upon your return)

With a laptop you should buy, and wear an ESD wrist strap. (Electro Static Discharge)
Connect the alligator clip to a good ground source. ( I use the metal frame of an empty desktop computer case)
An ESD wrist strap is also the best method for working on a desktop computer.

Therefore I recommend you buy, and wear an ESD wrist strap, when working on the IQ770. (Unplugged from power)
The average cost of an ESD wrist strap is around $6.

3A) With patience, and determination, you will replace the fan, and gain experience.
(Also as you have read there aren't that many techs, except at HP, that work on these babies. You may find your experience to benefit you, and others when someone has a problem with HP TouchSmart computers. JMHO)

I just did a search. Are you sitting DOWN?
$285.00 US dollars! REFURBISHED!,TouchSmart,IQ700,Computer,Fans.aspx

I suggest you see if you can carefully open the fan shroud, (The casing around the fan), and find a fan/motor replacement.

Look at the markings on the label of the fan.
Post what you see.
The fan should run on 5 Volts DC, (5VDC), or 12 Volts DC, (12VDC)

Tell me how many wires, and the color code of the wires.
(Color of the insulation on the wires)

What RPM is listed? (Revolutions Per Minute)
Examples: 1000RPM. 1200RPM. 1500RPM
It may just list the number, and not have the designation RPM after it.
(The above numbers are just off the top of my head. the RPM's could be Much higher, or lower)

Measure across the fan blades, give me the Diameter. (Inches or Millimeters, or Centimeters)

Measure the Width, or thickness of the fan blades.

Post in a Comment.

I have an HP Touchsmart computer. When I put a data or audio CD in my DVD/CD drive, it sounds like it is going to start up, the light comes on like it is going to run, but nothing happens. Sometimes, it...

CDs means totally nothing. sorry....
what CD? , a CD-R? CD-RW, or a store bought CDDA disk
all 3 are different. (or DVD? of vast types too...)
my guess you meant CD-R. (CD record-able)
TouchSmart IQ770 PC Desktop? 2007 carbon date?

what OS, XP, VISTA or W7?

My guess its bad media or bad CD drive.
only way to prove that is use new CD-R burned on good system slow.
say using the great free utility called, imgburn.

first try a real disk, from a store, from the Music section
called CD-DA disk, play it , if it plays the CD drive might be ok.
then try what I call rubber disks, recordable. CD-R
using pro grade disk burned correctly.
buying the cheapest media can be a nightmare. here.

tell HP your OS
the as an example (i guessed OS, means operating system)
install this up date, called HP HP Personal and Pocket Media Drive Driver Update
