    Dual Boot 7 and 8


    The driver software was not in the system tray. I uninstalled the driver from the control panel nad then it didnt sense touch. I restarted still no touch. Also the touchscreen hooks into a chip would that matter?

    Hmm, Ok, try this:

    Go into control panel, device driver, human interface devices, and right click your eGalax driver.
    Select Update driver software, then let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer.

    Tell me what's available under "Model"

    Doolster, I tried researching your problem on the web, and it seems that your screen has problems with both Ubuntu and Android, as well as with Windows. Here's alink to a technical forum that attempts to solve the problem.

    Doolster, am I correct is saying that your Dell Latitude D610 is a Windows XP laptop? Is it possible that the hardware simply cannot handle a touchscreen?
