Unable to use touch screen on P40

2016-06-17, 18:41 PM

Hello,

 

I cannot use the touch screen on my Thinkpad Yoga P40 anymore, may that be in laptop mode or tablet mode. I bought this product four months ago. I do not see where this issue could come from, and I could not find any solution online.

Any advice on how to make it work again?

Thanks in advance.

 

Kind regards,

 

FabienC

Have you attempted a full shutdown?  Not simply restarting via the Windows power menu, but actually launching Command Prompt as Administrator, and then entering "shutdown -r -t 00".

Thank you for your answer.

 

I just tried that command, and it still does not work.

If you go into Control Panel --> Device Manager --> Human Interface Devices, do you see any entry that references a touch screen?
