Thinkpad X1 5th Gen: replace no touch screen with touch screen?

2019-06-23, 16:51 PM

I just purchased a Thinkpad X1 5th Gen and was flabbergasted to find that it does not have a touch screen. I checked Device manager and nope, not there.  Is it possible to add drivers to turn LCD screen into touch screen or is this a hardware problem?

I assume you are talking about x1 carbon.  There is no touch digitizer.  Most custimers didn't want or choose the touch option so the 4th gen was made without a digitizer option and the x1 yoga gen1 was basically an x1 carbon plus the touch digitizer.  The 5th gen carbon has no touch option but there is an x1 yoga gen2 with touch.  X1 carbon gen6 and gen 7 do have a touch option again, but they do not have the built-in pen found on x1 yoga gen 3 and 4.

How to confirm if my X1 Yoga Gen 5 has touch screen or not?

I am able to use stylus, but not touch using finger.

Thx
