Touch screen on my device is working from time to time. Mostly not working at all. It stops working after suspend/reboot. I can't understand what makes it work again. Sometimes you suspend/reboot again and it starts working, sometimes its not.
The reason of this is I2C HID Device with status "This device cannot start. (Code 10) A request for the HID descriptor failed." which is shown in Device Manager. When it doesn't have yellow warning icon - touch is working.
What I tried:

I had this same problem, and tried the same troubleshooting solutions with no luck. Even after a factory reset, and reinstalling windows, the touch screen problem persisted. I uninstalled and reinstalled the I2C HID device that corresponds with the touch screen, which also did not work.
Finally, I performed a "hard" shut down (held the power button until the computer shut down). With the computer off, I configured it in tablet mode (with the screen folded back over the keyboard), then turned it back on. The touch screen worked!
I asummed this has to do with the BIOS looking for touch screen inputs before other inputs if the computer starts up in this mode. In any case, it worked, so worth a shot.

Yep, looks like it helps. But:
1. This should be fixed. Hard off is not even "good" solution, it's awful.
2. Sometimes touch is working only in tablet mode after power on.
Anyway, thank you. It's better than nothing.

Same thing for me too, but I can't just do a reboot everytime I need to switch from one mode to the other. Unless Lenovo/Microsoft come out with a solution sooon, I'll be forced to look for a new permanent solution.

Bought a Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 370, I got exactly the same issue. I even updated bios, but nothing. In fact, currently is not working at all! Eventually the touch just nver came back!
Now that I´m looking at forums, i see people complaining about touch issues in Lenovo since 2012!! This is unacceptable!

yep, I agree it is a joke.
To be fair though, tech support are willing to take my laptop back and investigate it. But they want me to take all my work off it first so they can wipe it and do a compete re-install of windows. I can do that myself!
I'm just going to live with it for another year, and then by a new non-lenovo laptop.
