    Default CF-29 touchscreen recalibration

    I need to recalibrate the touchscreen on my CF-29 but for the life of me can't find the app to do so! Where is it!?!

    Does it not show up near the clock in the taskbar?

    Noo... the only Panasonic thing in the system tray is the Hotkey Manager.

    If you go to Control panel then Mouse, you should have a Touchscreen tab.

    There is a button in there to start the calibration sequence.

    Also in addition to that, you can go to util. and look for a touchscreen driver. From there, you can click the calibration tool.

    just to bring this thread back up, I'm having some problems with my touchscreen now. Not that it doesn't work, but it continually loses partial calibration. That is, I calibrate it, works fine for about 10 minutes, then the lower half of the screen starts losing it - the pointer slowly moves further and further south from where I poke, but the top half is just fine!!

    Anybody else run into this problem? I've tried to clean the perimeter of the LCD bezel with a thin piece of plastic thinking something might be wedged in there, but no luck.

    I have had this problem on a few of mine, does you screen feel like it sags? because it seems like that's what it is

    Look for crap between the screen bezel and the screen and also crap wedged between the touchpad and the housing...

    Psycho.... Yours is a different issue.

    This brings up something that I've been wanting to ask. I have a laptop that was a prior PD laptop. It was a "Secure" build meaning that everything was locked down with Torx security screws so the average end user couldn't take it apart or remove the battery or hard drive. It is Touchscreen equipped and it is enabled in the BIOS... But no Touchscreen. I have two of them the same way.... Psycho has the same issue. I just installed a fresh OS via Recovery Disks so I know there is no driver issue. I did dig out a ton of crap between the bezel and the screen and also the obligatory donut crumbs from under the touchpad housing. Anyone have an idea where someone would do a hardware interrupt on the touchscreen? I cannot believe that ALL these Toughbooks have bad touchscreens.
