    Windows 8 (Surface Pro) Touch Screen Issues..


    I'm having trouble with my touch screen
    It worked great at first...then I tried to make it better by...

    1) playing around in the gesture options...(task pane)
    2) installing synaptic drivers
    3) playing around in the touch calibration settings


    Now the touch indicator is always 5cm to the "Left" of where I "tap".
    ONLY with fingers...
    ...........

    1) the trackpad on the keyboard works.
    2) the external (USB) mouse works.
    3) the stylus pen works

    ....................................

    At this point I think it would be very difficult to "re-trace" my steps...
    Especially since the windows 8 "settings" are scattered all over the Metro and Desktop interface...
    ....................................

    How can I restore the default Touch settings to my device?
    Where can I download windows 8 drivers... for "Surface pro"
    All I seem to find are HP, Acer, Samsung etc...
    Does Mircosoft have any drivers for their self made "surface"?

    Thanks.
