x60 multitouch issue: finger touch won't work

I hope I'm not making a mistake, I have a 6364-BV2, I assume it's multitouch (as long as the pen works, should finger touch work as well?) and I'm not able to use my fingers to touch anything on the screen. It's the low-rez version...

 

I tried installing the multitouch driver but for nothing... I have xp tablet edition...

 

Is it possible that my tablet doesn't actually have multitouch (finger touch capability) and only the pen is supposed to work?

 

Thanks

Re: x60 multitouch issue: finger touch won't work

Not all screen are multitouch capable, the pen have a special proximty device that the sensors on a layer on top of the screen picks up, unless the screen also has an additional sensor sheet for your finger, it would not work with your finger...

 

There are two types of screen option one is Multitouch and Non-multitouch in the XGA format, and SXGA format is definitely non multi-touch.

this is what you need in terms of a multitouch capable machine.

Re: x60 multitouch issue: finger touch won't work

I have one of those, I'm just not sure if my model is "selected" or not Smiley Happy

Any ideea how can I figure out if it's supposed to be "finger sensitive" as well?

Re: x60 multitouch issue: finger touch won't work

Greetings,

 

I can help you with this question, but in order for me to tell you which LCD panel was orginally installed with your unit, I'd need to know the serial number for that unit.

 

DO NOT post it here in the forum. You can send me a private message and I can check for you.

 

Another option would be to contact Lenovo sales for the answer. If you have the orignal order number and customer number, they should be able to tell if you have a multitouch panel. If you're the states, call 1-866-968-4465 to reach that department.

 

Let me know if there is anything else I can assist you with.

 

Best,

Mark

 

 

 

Do NOT PM me with technical issues. Post in the forum for assistance. Thanks
