x201 tablet windows 8 touchscreen working !!

Until today after updating to Windows 8 the touchscreen of my notebook didn't work anymore.


To solve this issue, one can go to

then navigate to Support / Drivers then choose Windows 7 / Tablet PC

and download the driver 

Multilingual isd701-8_int.exeDownload
(17,29 MB ·  02.11.2010 13:51:45)

 and extract the exe file it with winrar. 


Then go to the windows device manager and select the "Unknown device" .

Update the driver and select the extracted folder of the driver on your hdd. 


After that the touchscreen will work again.

my hardware is the following: X201 Tablet  / 2985EZG / Serial Nr. R94XV34 / Bios: 6QET45WW (1.15 )


thanks to Heart

Is it worth it to upgrade to win 8? the upgrade installation assistant says x201t's screen is not optimal for win8.

I was wondering the same.
It also says that our screen resolution is not compatible with "Snap" (it has to be 1366x768 which is practically the same pixel wise, but is narrower and longer).
What's DOS?

When you say touch, just the pen or both the pen and finger. I have an X201 and pen works but thought hardware would support finger but perhaps not.

To enable 'Snap' on low resolution screens try this:


1. Open the Run Command i.e. 'Win+R'. Then type 'regedit' and hit Enter.
2. You can now navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\ImmersiveShell
3. Under ImmersiveShell key, create a new key AppPositioner.
4. Now you have to select the newly created key AppPositioner and in right-side pane, create a new DWORD AlwaysEnableLSSnapping and set its value to 1.
