    Installing Windows 8 Core with embedded key

    Here's my device manager. It is showing two unknown devices and a touch screen and my touchpad. Currently the touchpad is working, the touch screen is not working. Could they be interfering with each other? I may pull the bottom off and check all the connections but if device manager notices...
