Touch screen will not work

When placing the red tab in place, control panel lights up, but when you press any touch controls, there is no response. Took the panel cover off to see if anything obvious shows up, but no luck. I don't understand HOW the touch panel works, as there is no wires to the different pads.

SOURCE: touch pad quit working, fn-f7 doesn'make a difference

First, ensure that the button that enables/disables the touchpad is not deactivated if your unit has one.

If the keyboard still works, and you can navigate past your log-in password and enter your windows environment, here is a quick way to check and ensure your laptop still has the correct software driver for your touchpad mouse.

1: Press and hold your windows key, and press the R key.
2: This will open a run command prompt. Type "devmgmt.msc"
3: This will bring up your device manager. It contains all of the software drivers of your unit. If your mouse has a missing driver, it should boldly stand out from the list as an expended menu, within either your mouse drivers, or unknown drivers. You should see a yellow asterisk or exclamation mark next to the damaged or missing driver.
4: If the driver is missing, you can often re-download it from the manufacturers website and have the computer automatically re-install it once you have the driver saved onto your computer.

This solution is only for a single scenario though. Why your driver would have gone missing should it in fact be missing or damaged would still be questionable. It is possible that another program, such as a malicious spyware or virus, could have modified or deleted it. If that were the case, simply re-installing it would not erase the software that is causing damage from your machine.

This is only a software related fix. If it is hardware related, such as the touchpad hardware itself is defective or damaged, then it would need to be replaced by a certified technician, most likely at a service center. I would recommend taking it to your nearest Best Buy and having a Geeksquad agent inspect it, test a usb or ps2 mouse with it, and give you a better idea of which of the two possibilities (hardware or software) the fault is really being caused by.

Hope that helps.

SOURCE: How do I partially lock my touch pad so that my palm doesn't screw things up when I type and accidentally touch the pad?

If you look at your touchpad, you will notice a small elongated button, right above it. When you push the button, it will lock the touchpad. However, it will lock it entirely, until you unlock it. You will not be able to move the cursor or click on anything. I don't think HPs have the ability to "partially" lock the touchpad. At least, I was never told anything about it while I was working for them.

I have chefmate microwave and suddenly stopped working. it is showing 2:50 code on the screen only...it was working fine and dont know what happened to it and touch pad is not working..how do i make it...


HELLO.

The code on the screen indicate electric panel fault resulting from the touchpad malfunction.

The touch pad on your microwave oven acts as the brain of the appliance. It not only contains the buttons that you use to enter cooking settings and times, but also controls the function of the entire microwave. If the touch pad malfunctions or breaks completely, the microwave will cease to function. In this instance, the broken touch pad must be removed and a new touch pad must be installed, to restore functionality to the microwave.

1 Unplug the microwave from the wall outlet.
2 Remove the two screws, located on the front or top of the grill at the top of the microwave.
3 Pull the grill off of the microwave.
4 Remove the mounting screw from the top of the control panel.
5 Lift the control panel up and out to loosen. Look behind the control panel to ensure there are no metal tabs securing the control panel in place. If there are metal tabs, gently rotate the control panel to free the tabs.
6 Transfer the wires from the old control panel to the new control panel one at a time to ensure that the wires are properly installed.
7 Install the new control panel into the microwave and secure using the mounting screw that was removed.
8 Replace the grill from the top of the microwave and secure it using the screws that were removed.
9 Plug the microwave back into the wall outlet.
Thanks.

Just received a used ds lite from ebay. when I type on the screen it enters the letter next to the one I touched. Is this a serious problem? Never used a DS before; will this have an impact on game...


Sounds like you should try recaliberating the touch screen. Calibration must be done with a stylus. Please note: Using a unlicsensed screen protector can lower the sensitivity of the screen, making calibration difficult. If the problem you are encountering started happening after installing a screen protector, this may be the cause of the problem. Remove all games from the Nintendo DS. Turn the system on by pressing the POWER button. Press the A Button when the "Touch the Touch Screen to continue" message appears. When the main menu appears, use the Control Pad to to place the cursor over the Settings Menu Panel at the bottom of the screen, and press the A Button. should look like this :

You must touch the red square precisely at each of the three positions, otherwise the test will continue to re-start If the touch screen is not responding properly, hold the Nintendo DS at an angle so that you can see where the edges of the Touch Screen meet the housing of the system. Look around the entire edge of the Touch Screen for any foreign material (such as crumbs, etc.) that may be wedged in between the Touch Screen and the housing of the DS. Foreign material in this area can cause the Touch Screen to work incorrectly. When complete, four squares will appear, allowing users to test the touch screen sensitivity. (Testing is optional.) Tap the "Confirm" button in the lower-right corner. Wait for the the confirmation message to disappear, then tap "Quit," then "Yes" to exit. The unit will shut down automatically to save the settings. hope this helps

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!

First try to recalibrate the screen (start up the DS, and do the following--text from nintendo.com):
  1. Remove all games from the Nintendo DS.

  2. Turn the system on by pressing the POWER button.

  3. Press the A Button when the "Touch the Touch Screen to continue" message appears.

  4. When the main menu appears, use the Control Pad to to place the cursor over the Settings Menu Panel at the bottom of the screen, and press the A Button.

  5. Use the Control Pad to place the cursor over the orange icon that looks like crosshairs (the right-most icon), and press the A Button.
      icon_calibrate.gif

  6. Use the stylus, and tap the red square that appears on the screen. Do this each time the square moves.

    • You must touch the red square precisely at each of the three positions, otherwise the test will continue to re-start.
    • Ifthe touch screen is not responding properly, hold the Nintendo DS at anangle so that you can see where the edges of the Touch Screen meet thehousing of the system. Look around the entire edge of the Touch Screenfor any foreign material (such as crumbs, etc.) that may be wedged inbetween the Touch Screen and the housing of the DS. Foreign material inthis area can cause the Touch Screen to work incorrectly.
If the screen still does not work, you need to buy a new touchscreen. Many vendors sell these, here's an example:

http://store.richspsxparts.com/nidslito.html

You will need a good tri-wing screwdriver to do this repair (don't buy a cheap knockoff--they will strip your screws). Try one like this: http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-13-71-1e-49-en-15-tri_wing-70-1fe.html

  • Be sure that you're using only the bottom screen of the Nintendo DS Lite with the stylus. The upper screen is not a touch screen.
  • Unlicensed screen protectors can lower the sensitivity of the touch screen. If the problem you are experiencing started happening after you attached a screen protector, you may want to remove it. Please note that some screen protectors can leave behind a residue that may be difficult to clean. If you are planning on removing a screen protector that has been placed on your Nintendo DS Lite
  • If the touch screen is not responding when touched, or the accuracy of the screen is off, you may need to recalibrate the touch screen.
