    HID-Compliant Touch Screen driver and Tablet Mode are gone

    Yes, my work laptop is another touchscreen - but that one is a chromebook. The connection via HDMI was working today for my Acer...however, the touchscreen is back down. So it looks like there might be some hardware degrading going on. :(

    HID-Compliant Touch Screen driver and Tablet Mode are gone

    I tried project as well both with both duplicate and extend and same issue. Thanks, I found this beautiful fanart somewhere (can't remember where) and had to set it to my wallpaper. I love every reiteration of The Doctor... but 11 is my favorite. I just love him... he's a baby corgi. :giggle:

    HID-Compliant Touch Screen driver and Tablet Mode are gone

    Also, I have tried other HDMI cords - same issue. I have also hooked up my work laptop and it does not have this issue so it is definitely an issue with my acer.

    Hello, no, the laptop is almost 3 years old... I purchased it June 6, 2018 and started using it a couple weeks later. It's an Acer so I imagine it's registered with them. I did have a warranty however it expired after a year. What device specifically do you mean? There are a quite a lot of...

    HID-Compliant Touch Screen driver and Tablet Mode are gone

    My touchscreen driver has disappeared! I was using my Spin 3 (Acer SP315-51-37E7) in tablet mode a few days ago when all of a sudden, the touchscreen stopped working. I checked Device Manager and didn't see it. I enabled "show hidden" and I saw it then. I right-clicked to see if I could...

    Solved Liquid stain in laptop screen

    Yeah, I unfortunately wasn't as careful as I usually am, got a bit careless. The casing around those areas is a bit loose around the screen after getting pulled down from my desk by a rowdy toddler. Thankfully, there were no other damages. My laptop is starting to get up in age, nearing five...

    Solved Liquid stain in laptop screen

    Oddba, I thought as much. Hopefully, it resolves itself on it's own. I've never taken a laptop or a screen apart before and I'm not entirely confident in my ability to do so safely. Flavallee, it's a homemade cleaner we use on mirrors and displays: computers, tvs, ect. It's made of water and...

    Solved Liquid stain in laptop screen

    I was cleaning my laptop today, a gentle cleaner, no alcohol, bleach, ammonia or any harsh chemicals, and though I didn't spray directly onto the screen, I managed to get some of the cleaner underneath the screen. It's not too bad, and doesn't seem to be affecting my laptop in any way, it's just...

    New Microsoft Tech Support Scam

    My grandfather got taken in by a Microsoft Windows Support Scam and I'm fairly certain that his laptop's got a bug that I can't get rid of. What happened: He got a popup (while using Internet Explorer and after downloading an Adobe update) that said there was a security issue and that he...

    Solved: Problem with laptop keyboard-types wrong letters and symbols, and pulls up sh

    I woke up this morning and my laptop is back to normal. I'm not sure if there was a tiny bit of moisture that finally dried out or if leaving it shut down for several hours reset something, but the keyboard is working fine, I'm using it right now.

    Solved: Missing Ethernet, Bluetooth, Network, PCI, & SM Bus drivers for 2000-2C12NR

    Thank you for the help! Yes, I was already reprimanded for making multiple posts (oops) but I was in such a state of emergency I thought that I would be more likely to get a response if my message was in multiple threads. I will remember not to do so in the future. Going to go check that...
