Please have a mouse and keyboard nearby. Those two accessories will be your mode of input after disabling the touch screen.

  • Right click the Start button and click Device Manager OR search for 'Device Manager' from the Windows 8.1 Start screen
  • Select Human Interface Devices
  • Look for a device with the words 'touch screen. In my case, it said 'HID-compliant touch screen'
  • Right-click and select enablle

I have seen the same problem with a Dell computer that was caused by the driver for the touch pad. Suggest you go to the vendor web site and see if they have a new driver. If you have the latest go to an older driver, sometimes a new driver may have a bug.

The pen has stopped working when touching the screen


If your Leapster 2 will turn on, but the touch screen is not responding to the stylus, try re-calibrating the stylus with the screen using the steps below: 1. Turn your Leapster 2 off, and remove the game cartridge.
2. Hold down the 'hint' button while the game is off. The 'hint' button is the middle small button in the row of three above the directional pad on the left, with a '?' on it.
3. With your finger still firmly on the 'hint' button, turn the Leapster 2 back on. Keep your finger on the 'hint' button.
4. The screen should be displaying the calibration screen. You can release the 'hint' button now.
5. Press the 'A' button on the right to enter the calibration screen.
6. A small '+' sign will appear on the screen. Touch it with the stylus. A new '+' sign will appear. Touch this with the stylus too, and repeat for as many '+' signs as your Leapster 2 throws at you.
7. The screen will return to the calibration screen. You can now turn the machine off. Leave the cartridge out of the console, and turn it back on.
8. Your stylus and touch screen should now be working, enabling you to sign in as usual.
9. If it is working correctly then you can turn it off, add a game cartridge and turn it back on

Kenmore elite microwave touch screen stopped working


Same thing happened to us. We just came back from Sears, where we bought another. Just for giggles, my wife suggested unplugging the old one and plugging it back in again. It works now. New one's going back to the store.
