    Thank you

    I looked at the specs from your laptop to a lot of Web sites. Yours is not a portable touchscreen.  In a notebook of the touch screen the screen has two main parts. Upgrade of the screen, so it works will be quite expensive.

  • How to activate the touch screen?

    I have a new laptop which is Acer Aspire V5-471P-33214G50Mass, and I can't seem to do the touch screen works.

    The internet said that I should check the box with use your finger as an input device option. But as you can see from the screenshot I included, there is no option for me to do. What can you propose to solve this problem, the touch screen no matter where just gives no response or comments, it does not work.

    But im sure that the material is thin and undamaged, because on the first week, we bought it, it works very well, and there was no physical impact or a trauma that strikes my laptop.

  • How to activate the touch screen HP Pavilion Touch Smart (10-e010nr)

    The list of features on the HP website says that this laptop has a touchscreen, but the first time that I booted up (new with box), it doesn't seem to work.  I have run Windows Update and installed all security and optional updates.  I also installed all video updates from the HP support page.  What can I do else?  It has touch screen or not?  It had pre-installed Windows 8.1.  Thank you!

    Last night I did the reset complete back to factory settings... erase all files and reinstall Windows 8.1.  It took several hours.  It did not touch screen feature.  I also tried pressing F2 at startup and running the diagnostics on all of the touch screen.  He failed and gave me an error code.  As the computer is still under warranty (I don't have possession for another week yet), I talked to HP technical support on live chat and gave him the error code.  He said he must be sent to HP for service.  Since I live on a military base that, he told me that I must call their number of military sales to the United States.  When I called them, they were closed.  I won't and I'll try to return it to the base exchange where I bought it.  Thanks for trying to help me solve this problem.  I guess that's just DOA.

  • How to activate the lock screen windows 8

    I have a new computer with windows 8 (non-professional version). When I started my computer last week the screen lock always came first. Now, I noticed (a week later) is not longer to come, but goes straight to the log in page. I went to my bar of charms and customization selected and noticed the screen lock options are grayed out and in red letters is says "this page has been disabled by group policy" I am the owner and the administrator and have never knowingly changed anything.

    I did some research and everyone says to change that I need to access the local Group Policy Editor by typing pgedit.msc in the run bar. When I do that I get nothing. More research says that this feature is available only in windows 8 Professional. I don't have the professional version then how this lock screen changed. More importantly, how I have re activate the lock screen?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi, I have a HP TouchSmart 320-1030, so it can work on your TouchSmart:

    1. Press Windows + X logo.
    2. Select Device Manager from the list.
    3. Click on the small arrow next to Interface devices to expand the list.
    4. Click the touchscreen driver (in my case, Voltron NextWindow touch screen).

    How to activate the stylus and touch in windows 7? If it displays "no net and enter key is available for this view.

    Please tell me from the beginning on this topic...

    If this screen does not have a sensor to detect the pens or touch, you need to go buy a new touchscreen compatible.

    But if it worked before, then you probably have a driver installed.  Go to the website of the company that builds your screen, and search for downloads.
