    Laptop/tablet - Touchscreen doesn't work in laptop mode

    Toshiba convertible Laptop/Tablet no longer allows the use of the touch-screen when in laptop mode. When the screen is folded down into tablet mode then the touch-screen works as expected. This laptop is over a year old and the touch-screen was working fine in both laptop and tablet mode previously.

    This is my mother's laptop and so I do not know how long ago this occurred, but it was within the last month or 2 since that was the last time I used it without an issue. I cannot find a setting for this in control panel.

    It is possible there has a been a Windows Update recently which updated the drivers that is causing the problem.

    You should be able to find the touch screen drivers. Try rolling back the driver.

I can't quickly mute, change screen brightness or put my computer to sleep. This is very annoying. Do I need to install a driver even though the...

Stylus for non-tablet laptop touchscreen?
I have an iBuyPower Battalion Touch CZ-11 Ultra. Is it possible to get a stylus that would work for this screen? I'm not 100% sure on this one, but I think its touchscreen is similar to that of an iPad (with less touch points), and I know the iPad can't use say a Nintendo DS stylus. On the site,...
