Exclamation Windows 8, Lost Touch Functionality
Hello,

I was wondering if someone can help me with a problem im having with my all-in-one

I have a Packard Bell oneTwo M3871

Yesterday I upgraded to Windows 8 (64 bit) from Windows 7 (64 bit) and lost all touch screen functionality, everything else works fine.

I have tried windows update and tried checking whether some of the drivers are up to date, but I have very little knowledge of what to do

From

When you were running Window 7 were there any Packard Bell utilities to make the touch screen work? If so, have you tried installing those?

If there is a Packard Bell supplied display driver have you tried that (even if there is no Windows 8 version)?

Packard Bell Touch Screen not working
Hi, Have just installed windows 8 and have lost the use of touch screen, I see I'm not the only one so I hope someone comes up with an answer. Windows 8 really seems to need a touch screen. Have tried changing drivers, even reformatted my disk just to check if it was a fault with PC.

Spoke to P Bell today who said that Microsoft have not released a patch yet for this to make it work, they will release it very soon so I have been told.

Hello Flavallee, I was wondering if you could help me find a solution for the Packard Bell touch screen loss of funcionality. Do you know if either Microsoft or PB came out with a patch? Thank you for your help.
