I have a touch screen laptop, and my touch screen is out of whack. I try to calibrate it by touching the points with the pen where it tells me too (at the 4 corners), but it wont let me. I can press the first corner, but when i touch the second - right top side, it wont let me. It just makes a noise. I guess the noise u get when theres an error?. I keep trying and trying but it wont calibrate. i am getting frustrated. I dont know what to do Please help my sorry ass.!!

I am not sure you are talking about a tablet PC or the new craze of tablets. For the tablet PC you should have a screen calibration utility. You can calibrate the display for the Wacom (or other) pen, or for the touch input. When you calibrate the pen, any touching of the screen with anything other that the Wacom pen will be ignored. Similarly, when you calibrate the touch, any input with the Wacom pen will be ignored and you will be asked to use the proper instrument.
To get back to your case , it is possible that you are not putting the finger at the right place or not pressing hard enough. That is just a guess and I may be off the mark for the new tablets, but not for the Tablets PC:
Although it may be tempting to open the box and start playing with your <b>Tablet PC</b>, one of the most important things you should do is calibrate your pen. This means spending time with the pen after a few steps to ensure that the tablet PC pen knows the touch screen is used. To do this, click Start, and the parameters of the search field type <b>Tablet PC</b>. On the list of results Tablet PC Settings and from there go to <b>Display </b>> <b>Display Options</b> > <b>Calibrate</b>.Follow the steps to finish the door and remember to save your settings to accept calibration.<br />
Have you turned on the Touch feature on Windows 7 yet? That could be the reason why your touch screen feature is not working.
To turn it on please follow this:
1. Open your Start menu and type "Touch" into the search bar. This will show a variety of options, including the "Pen and Touch" options. Double-click it to open the "Pen and Touch" window. 2. Check the boxes next to the "Use your finger as an input device" and, if preferred, check the "Enable multi-touch gestures and inking" box as well. 3. Click "Apply" to set the options and click "OK" to exit the window.
I think the pen has gone bad on you, since your screen can still detect your hand and the track pad. I would think the pen is faulty. Try another pen cause I think your original is bad, if it was the touch feature that wasn't working I would say its a driver problem but that feature still works with the exception of the pen. Get another pen.
I'm not familiar with your laptop but judging from all the pdas I've had with touch screens the pen itself is only a pen, you could basicly use a wooden stick to poke at the screen and it shouldn't make a difference to the computer.
this laptop has a touchscreen If I'm not mistaken and you should be able to use it even with your fingers.
You might have a faulty touchscreen or then you need to install a driver for the screen?
