This seems to be a common problem with this Toshiba. I squeeze the molding around the screen near the areas that the touch screen is not working. It usually happends in long blocks that don't respond to the pen.Press along the top sides and bottom running along all the edges with pressure. You may have to work with it a few times but it seems the fix mine for a while.. hope this helps

I have a Toshiba tablet M780-s7230 and i tried reinstalling the touch screen driver and my tablet pen and touch screen still don't work what else could i do?


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.


Hope this helps!

My slate vision tablet pc is having some problems. The screen is not reacting when the pen touches the screen. I went into the control panel seems that everything set up correctly. Could it be the pen that...


Your tablet pc uses the Wacom Digitizer so the pen does not use a battery. It is possible that it could be the pen or the screen. It works with electromagnetic resonance technology and the screen produces this signal that the pen grabs, converts, and returns to the screen without batteries. The pen does contain compenents that can fail but so does the screen. You could try buying a replacement pen for around $20 dollars and see if that works. Worst case you would be out $20. If you had another tablet PC that uses a Wacom screen you could try the pen with that one or test the other pen with yours.

My pen for my computer won't work


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.

How to use the pen


Using the pen is quite simple.
You extract it from its storage space and use it as a mouse, left clicking it as you would a mouse.
By pressing the tip of the pen on an area on desktop or on an application window and maintaining the pressure for a short while, you activate the context menus (the equivalent of a right click.)

On the Windows task bar (for Windows XP) there is a small icon near the start button that shows a pen pointing outside: that is the input panel. Click the icon with a mouse or your pen, and an input area opens. In that area you write with the pen (writing Pad) or enter letters and symbols one at a time (Character Pad) or use a virtual keyboard.

Under the red X that closes the input panel there is a small gear. C;ick the gear with the pen or a mouse to configure the settings.

Your pen may have an eraser at the rear end and/OR on the side. It is used to erase characters or whole sentences.

To actually record (write) what you enter with the pen you must have a text-editing application open and running.
Whenever you approach the pen to the screen near a text-area (search area of IE or other compatible applications) a small icon appears to be clicked to enter text. This happens is you select UNDOCK in the input panel configuration.

This should get you started with the pen. Try these steps, and if you have any other questions post them as comments to this thread and it will be my pleasure to answer them.

Problem with the touch screen an stylus


Press the Up + Down buttons at the same time. This will turn off the "Digitizer" function on the tablet and allow the user to use their finger, the stylus, or blunt end of a pen.

The 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?
