Re: x61 Tablet touchscreen doesn't work

I don't believe the X61 is a touch screen model. It has a tablet pen, but the screen itself is not touch sensitive.

Sounds like you may have a short in the wires that run into your LCD. Probably not work getting fixed.

Only a few X61 Tablet with XGA - display have a "Multitouch" display. Multitouch can be used if the multitouch driver under Vista or Windows 7  has been installed.  All other models only work with the pen.

 

Input your laptop data here and check, whether "Multitouch" is mentioned on the result page.

 

Bluetooth:

Check in BIOS under Security - I/O Port Acess whether Bluetooth is enabled there.

After that press FnF5 exactly one time (nothing visible happens then) and end BIOS with F10 - yes. If the backlight turns off, turn off computer wait a little bit and turn it on again. The Bluetooth LED should turn on after a few seconds while booting  then.

 

Buttons:

For the tablet buttons the Tablet Button Driver is needed:

Re: x61 Tablet touchscreen doesn't work

Looks like a hardware problem. You'll need to check the display cable.

Re: x61 Tablet touchscreen doesn't work

Very strange.

Are the fuses on the system board well?

 

You'll find them near the printed "Fxx" on the board itself.

Similar to the X60-fuses: http://translate.google.de/translate?sl=de&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=de&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&u=http%...

Re: x61 Tablet touchscreen doesn't work

Your pictures have a too low resolution.

 

If you follow my link above to the thinkwiki.de - page click the pictures on that page for a higher resolution.

You'll find the fuses marked there. On the system board next to the fuses you will find the fuse's "name" called "Fxx" ("xx" is a number) f.ex. "F1", F8"...

 

You'll need to search the fuses with a magnifier on your system board (top side) and measure the resistance between both silvered ends of the fuse.

 

The fuses for the display are near the display connector.
