I don't know the X200, but you can try the multitouch driver:

thanks for your reply..

 

Its not the problem with the driver.

The one I am using now is support only the pen touch. There are some other model in X200 tablet series with multi touch.

 

So what I am asking is  IS IT POSSIBLE TO USE THE MULTI TOUCH DISPLAY ON MY X200 ?

Re: Multi touch LCD panel on single touch X200 tablet

"The new multitouch screen, a $200 option, uses a high-quality capacitive touch digitizer to register input from two fingers at once, allowing users to perform such multitouch gestures as pinching to zoom or swiping two fingers to scroll. In testing, the screen was highly responsive, and only a light touch was required for it to register".

 

From http://www.laptopmag.com/review/laptops/lenovo-thinkpad-x200-tablet-multitouch.aspx

 

It seems you had to pay the extra $200 when you purchased it...

Re: Multi touch LCD panel on single touch X200 tablet

thank you so much again..!

 

I am ready to pay for the extra LCD.

 

But the confusions are:

 

Do I need to change the LCD cable also ?

 

The multi touch LCD FRU is out of stock with IBM. So can I get it from any third party ?

Cables are different.  Lid is different.  Microprocessor card is different.  Side brackets are different  The only way to guarantee compatiblity is to buy parts with Lenovo FRU numbers.  If you change the panel yourself, you will void any warranty that is remaining.  If you buy all these parts, you may end up paying as much as the machine is worth, unless you can find a whole assembly.  You would probably be better off selling yours and buying a replacement.
