    Touch screen acting on its own


    I installed Windows 8 Preview on the new Fujitsu tablet Q550. So far it all works great except that the touch screen is clicking itself. It looks as if I was touching the screen and when it does (touch) a link, it launches it. I also have to be careful when typing because if it "touches", it places my cursor out of place... Anyone seen that?

    I haven't had this issue, and I don't know of a sensitivity option for touch screens in windows 8.
    That sounds terribly frustrating.

    Is there any chance you're touching the screen in two places at once when it clicks randomly; if you type fast, touching in two places at once my cause an errant click...

    Does it ever happen when nothing is touching the screen at all?

    It is frustrating. This is happening even though nothing is touching the screen. To test it out am using the keyboard and mouse to not get close to the screen, it still does it...

    Wow, that's really fritzy -- it might be a hardware problem, that really shouldn't be happening if nothing is touching the screen. I presume this didn't happen before Windows 8?

    Have you checked for driver updates for your touch screen?
