Enabling Pen on TouchSmart

Q: Enabling Pen on TouchSmart

Hi, I just recently got an Envy All-in-One Touchsmart; it is a super machine and so far, so good. The 10-point touch is really cool, but there are many instances when I would like to be able to use a pen in order to be more precise in my pointing or to "mark up" a document. I know Microsoft Office has the "inking" feature because I use it on my Laptop with a "pen" while I am traveling and have found it invaluable -- and, by the way this laptop is both touch and pen enabled. I tried to enable "pen" by going to the Control Panel feature that is says says Pen and Touch, but when you do so, it is only for Touch. How can I make it so that it both touch and pen enabled? If that is all possible, what type of "pen" do I need? Thank you very much

A: Enabling Pen on TouchSmart

Hi AIResnick, A stylus used on a capacitive touch screen basically just takes the place of your finger, so enabling touch on the computer will enable pen input as well. But it can't just be any pen or stylus, the material at the tip has to be something that will register as touch on the screen, and not scratch it. I read your other post and I understand you're looking for a finer-tipped stylus, rather than the ubiquitous blunt-ended, eraser-type stylus pens. That limits your options quite a bit, because I believe the larger surface area is part of what makes those pens work on capacitive screens. (Other types of touch screens can use other styles of stylus, including pointy-tipped ones in some cases.) I've heard good things about the Jot Pro from Adonit. I haven't tried it, so I can't speak from experience. The design seems clever--it looks like they attached a clear, flat disc to the tip of a metal pen, so you can see precisely where you're writing with the point of the pen, but the clear disc provides enough surface area for the touch to register, and prevents damage to your screen from the sharp pen point. I hope that helps.

My question: Is the TouchSmart tm2 compatible with WIN 10 and what must be accomplished to achieve a successful install? First, a slignt rant.I was successfuly running WIN 10 on my TouchSmart tm2 when I updated a video driver and afterwards could only get a blank screen. Yes, my bad! I paid HP $99 for incident support and their only suggestion was to do a full system recovery & reinstall WIN 7 Pro. Really? You made me pay for that?  Since I didn't have the OS disks (it was OEM) I had to pay HP $25 for the media and $15 FOR SECOND DAY DELIVERY ONLY TO HAVE THE MEDIA ARRIVE ON DAY 3.  I can't reach anyone at HP to refund the delivery failure. Now support is stating that my computer isn't compatible with WIN 10. If I was successfully running WIN 10, why is it now un compatable?

Hello, i have a HP TouchSmart computer that i need to reformat badly. I am wondering if reformatting it with any regular vista CD key will lose such features as the touchscreen, wireless mouse & keyboard, built in webcam.

The Original owner of the computer claims it came with its own Vista CD key that he lost.

A:HP TouchSmart

Hi Jack0000


If the HP restore partition is in good condition (not damaged or malware-ridden), you can perform a re-write of the factory-original hard-disk-image by tapping the F11 as your HP is first powered on, then following the prompts as shown (step-by-step, with screenshots) in the following instructions at the HP support website --- http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...=3752240#N1066

Note that you'd first want to move any data that you wish to save off to removable or external media before you run a return to factory original.

Once the factory-original image is restored, you'll have to visit Windows Update to get the Security Updates since the TouchSmart was shipped. You'll want to update the Security software as well (if you need a free alternative, I think "avast! antivirus" is a good choice).

Once the PC is updated and fully protected against malware, you can then create a recovery disk set onto DVDs following the instructions from this HP support webpage --- http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...name=c00882383

Having made your own Recovery DVD set allows you the freedom of running the recovery onto a new, blank drive - should you need or wish to upgrade to a new hard drive in the future.

You can, of course, also order Recovery DVDs directly from HP for most models. The price is considerably less than purchasing a Windows license retail. Much less.

Best of luck

Good Evening, I have a HP Touchsmart TM2-I can supply the specs if you need them- and it has just started to crash at almost every click/action which I take. THis has only happened within the last couple of days and it has been instant, rather than over time. I did a System Restore but this didn't solve the issue. It may ahve been because I had to stop a disk check last week because my laptop battery died but I'm not sure if that would have such a big effect on the laptops performance.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks a lot
Dan

A:Hp Touchsmart TM2 crashing

That would have a huge effect not finishing a disk check. If you can boot in, Make sure you have your power adapter attached, Go to Start/Search and type CMD Right click the CMD.exe icon in the Search Results and Run As Administrator. In the Command Prompt type chkdsk /R and press enter. Now type a Y and reboot the computer. The Check Disk Utility will try and fix any problems.

When you press the power button the LED light flickers green one time but remains off. The computer does not power up at all. I have tested the power supply with a laptop and it is working. I have also tried another identical powersupply on the PC but the same thing occurs. Thanks

Hi, I need to purchase a new motherboard for my TouchSmart 610.  I've opened up the computer and found that the motherboard installed in the computer is model number DA0ZN8MB6I0 (Part number 648511-001).  While trying to find a place to purchase this mother board, I see that is motherboard is fairly expensive.  While searhing I also found another motherboard, model number DA0ZN9MB6H0 (Part number 648512-001), which is also used in the TouchSmart 610.  Visually this motherboard looks the same at the orignal motherboard and is significanly cheaper.  The part numbers differ by only one digit (before the revisoin number, 001), which makes me think that the two motherboards are very similar. Does anyone know if these two motehrboard are compatiable/interchangeable?  Where can I get information on the difference between these two motherboards? My motherboard has a built in video cards, does anyone know if the second motehrboard does as well?  or will I need to purchase a seperate video card if I were to purchase that motherbaord? Thanks for the help.

Thanks.

I have a currently crippled HP touchsmart 300-1003. I replaced a dead hard drive with a new 1TB HDD. I have available to me 2 sets of touchsmart recovery disks, and Windows 7 Bootable USB drive (made with win7 tool). The official recovery CDs do absolutely nothing but tell me MBR IS MISSING PRESS CTRL ALT DEL TO RESTART. The bios lists my new HDD (can tell because size is now 1000GB). I cannot choose USB drive as first boot in bios or boot order (this pc has two different menus for the same function, idky). Is there a bootdisk I can use to fixmbr? Please be so kind to provide a guide to getting a touch computer running from the begininng. All the advice online seems to be for computers that will go to a recovery screen already. If I could do that I wouldn't need the disks, lol. I would like to install the touchsmart software but will settle for any windows at this point. Thanks in advance to anyone that is able to walk me through the process.1 Hour Later: To use MSWIN7 USB Tool, I had to ENABLE BOOT DIAGNOSTIC from BIOS, power on, let the black screen read Configured 01 usb drive, ctrlaltdel, f10 to bios again, disable boot diagnostic screen, save and continue f5, then hit ESC for tiny boot menu at the HP LOGO, pick USB 2.0 as first boot. The tool started windows as Repair (which I followed MSguide for bootsec and /fixmbr, no clue if that fixed mbr tho) and Install Windows 7. I picked install. More updates to come.

Looking at the specifications of the model you gave: HP TouchSmart 600-1350a Desktop PC Product Specifications, it shows in one diagram that it could potentially have video inputs, but it is an option.

Hi all,

Does anyone here experience install Win XP Pro on HP touchsmart tx2(downgrade from Vista)? I need some advise. thank you.

A:Install XP on HP touchsmart tx2

I would advise you not to install XP on a touchsmart PC. The reasons are as follows.

1. Make sure all of the drivers are available on the HP Support website.
2. Since XP tablet edition is not available in retail, the touch screen won't work.
3. You will have ask HP to give you a OEM version of XP tablet edition (which I don't think they will provide).

If you just want to use it as a non-Touch screen PC. Go you may go ahead only after you have confirmed that the drivers are available.

Post back if you have any more questions.

I've got a TouchSmart 610-1280qd desktop. It was working fine until 1 week ago when my home had a power outage. Now, it won't even boot up. No power, nothing. Even the power brick light is out. I bought a replacement power brick and when I plug it in, the green led light on the new brick(the old is blue) immediately goes out and there's still no power. The power button effects no response, nor does any button on the keyboard have any effect. There's just no power to the entire computer. I've tried plugging both the old and new power bricks in and initially, the blue and green lights on each respectively go on, until I plug them into the desktop.  Then the lights go out and still no power and no response by pressing the power button or any button on the keyboard. I've also tried plugging in the old and new power bricks without the surge protector. The power bricks lights go on, but as soon as I plug them in, still no power. I've tried different outlets around my house and the power bricks lights go on, but as soon as I plug them into the desktop, no power. I've tried plugging he power bricks into the desktop first, then the outlets, and no power at all either in the desktop. There is no response at any stage where i've pressed the keyboards buttons. The desktop just doesn't have any power at all.   Anyone have a problem with this?

Hi

I have just bought one of these damaged. The screen is smashed, there is no HDD, RAM, Battery and Power Supply. It also has bad damage to one corner (been dropped from a huge height by the looks) thus damaging lid, palm rest and base. I know RAM and P/S are not a great cost issue but I'm not sure if it is worth buying a new screen and hdd for it. I paid ?42.00 for laptop as it was part of a job lot, and I see they retail at around ?500-?600. Should I fix it up to sell or keep, or just sell it as it is to see if I can make a slight profit?

When are the BSODs occurring? (immediately after boot-up or ... minutes, hours later?)

Please see - NO KERNEL MEMORY DUMP FILES BEING PRODUCED UPON BSOD?

Can you read info from the blue screen? I'm looking for the STOP error and a driver name.

When this happenes, I have to disconnect the computer from the wall and reconnect and start over. This always fixes it so it leads me to believe it is some sort of glitch. I called HP and they told me to run a system quick and extensive check on the hard drive which i have done. Both passed and no errors reported. Another thing that will happen is that the screen will go dark, (typically after idling and when i return and move the mouse or type on keyboard, the screen never lights up again as its supposed to when it is no longer idling.

I am new to the forum but a long time computer tech. I have been to the forum on various occasions for help on fixing different issues. I have to say this is a great community that helps alot of people including myself. I've ran into an issue that I believe is needing some of you guys expertise.
What I have is a touchsmart laptop from HP that the keyboard and the touchpad mouse quit working. I have searched all over the internet looking for answers and came across a few telling me to pull the battery and AC adapter to reset the computer. I've had no luck on this being a solution. I have read that booting the computer with the touchscreen facing out is what causes this issue.

So I've tried pulling the power and the battery then holding the power button in to drain any residual energy left on the CPU. And upon booting the computer keyboard will respond but only for the menu that states for starting Windows normally or in Safe mode. After letting the computer boot completely the keyboard and touchpad quits working altogether. This is booting it up in safe mode or in normal mode. The laptop is running Windows 7 Home Premium and I believe that this is my only issue. Any help or ideas on what else to troubleshoot will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hello

My HP Touchsmart has never worked properly, Tons of problem, crashing error message etc etc. Computer was sent to HP for repair but it came back whit the same problem. I have spent hours with HP tech support running scan and making recovery with no succes. Recently I have replaced the hard drive on HP tech support recommendation. it worked for awhile but now it dosen't even boot! I don't want to call HP anymore and I wander if somebody can help me or if I should just give up.

Thanks
 

A:Trouble with HP Touchsmart

Call HP and ask to talk to a manager, then explain what's happened and the number of times you called and that you've had to send it back and demand that they replace the computer with a new one. All-in-Ones are similar to laptops, the repairs are expensive and parts are hard to get, it's best to get the manufacturer to repair or replace it especially under the warranty.

Hello I have a touchsmart 300 and it has no sound from the speakers or headphone jack. I have tried the troubleshoot thing and it dont recognize anything wrong with them. please help. ive tried updating the driver and it says it is updated. so lost. thanks.
 

A:Touchsmart 300 no sound

Did your pc have working sound when new?
Check the volume level, it's easy to turn it right down or mute it.
Check if the speakers are selected by going to the speaker icon in tray near the current time.
Right click on speaker icon, choose 'playback devices'.
A new box appears, with a speaker and it should have a green tick over it.
Right click on the icon and choose the option 'test', you should hear audio tones.
If you don't have a green tick, right click on icon and choose 'enable'.

I have been dealing with a broken home on my laptop for more than a year. I just searched these forums and found ~70 posts all with the same issue. This seems to be due to poor design that never should have made it past the quality assurance engineers, having a metal hinge screwed into non-reinforced plastic. I find it reprehensible that a premium laptop was made so poorly. I am told by local PC repair shops that it will cost me $400+ to get this fixed. That's 1/3 what I paid for the machine in the first place.I tried calling support and was directed to log onto the support site for assistance, from which I was directed to search the forums. I thought HP made better products than this, but hadn't wanted to put up the money to get one to find out. Then I bit the bullet and got rewarded with a busted hinge on a laptop that spends its days being used by my wife at home, bring opened and closed 2-3 times per day. And now it seems like I'm going to get the runaround to get this fixed, or just have to trash an otherwise great machine due to crappy hinges. I love this laptop as far as performance and hardware specs go but it is a pain to open and close to try and avoid breaking the other hinge and essentially removing the screen.Any guidance on what I can do to get an actual answer or a case submitted to get any useful help?

I recently upgraded my computer (by myself : :blackeye: ). It was new installation of a video card. My old one was an Integrated NVidia that is forever onboard as far as I can tell, and the new video card is an ATI Radeon 7000. I installed it, and it seems to be working all right as far as everything goes.


I recently went to play a game, LineageII. I knew I fell somewhere between the minimum and maximum requirements, so I went to play and it told me that my AGP was deactivated, and to enable it for consistency. When I'd start the game, the screen would go black. I figured I'd better enable my AGP -- however, when I went to do so I realized I had no frickin' clue how to do it. I tried to do it through DirectX, but it's greyed out. When I tried to do it in Bios, my Bios said NOTHING about any AGP but at the same time I haven't an idea what to look for and modify thus I got really confused. I've been trying for two days now to figure something out without ruining my computer Help!

I know I run an ASUS motherboard.
My Bios type -- I don't know but it says "ev 1004/aa" under revision type and something about Pheonix Award Bios Setup.

I am so lost! Help me!

I was wondering if S.M.A.R.T was enabled for my HDD.
I've checked my BIOS and have seen no options for it. (Not sure what my BIOS type is but I have a COMPAQ Presario C700t and the BIOS version is F.34
I've also tried to access the advanced BIOS (I Googled it and the only thing I've seen was to press Crtl + F1 to access the advanced menu in the BIOS, but nothing happens when I do that.)

I also see a hidden entry in my Task Scheduler under DiskDiagnostic called 'Microsoft-Windows-DiskDiagnosticResolver' and the description says:

"The Microsoft-Windows-DiskDiagnosticResolver warns users about faults reported by hard disks that support the Self Monitoring and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.) standard. This task is triggered automatically by the Diagnostic Policy Service when a S.M.A.R.T. fault is detected."

I've always had it as Disabled and I enabled it. When rebooting and viewing again, it shows it has not run. If I run it manually, it triggers DFDWiz.exe in system32 but nothing happens.

How do I know/enable S.M.A.R.T.?

as far as i know, s.m.a.r.t. monitoring is enabled/disabled with the bios. if you don't have that option, then you can't enable it. however, there is a free program that you can monitor your hdd's. but, i don't know if it requires that your system has to option to use s.m.a.r.t. monitoring.

I'm assuming you're in the "Turn windows features on/off" dialogue?

Hi,

currently i have become frustrated with the general slowness that my computer seems to go through on a daily basis. even a simple, low detail, low memory usage game (minecraft) runs at 4-6 fps, with the most dumbed down settings that i can put it at. Now my question is, how easy, or on the other end complicated, would it be to upgrade the current cpu (Intel Core 2 Duo T6400) to something much more powerful. Considering this computer is a very much compacted unit, with no seperate tower housing the hardware, I imagine it wouldnt be quite the simplest of tasks. Also, a general list of compatible cpus would be nice as well.

Hi there,    I have a HP Touchsmart 600-1120, It will power on and i think i can hear the cd drive or HDD.  But no fans. Then after about 20 sec i start to hear 2 long beeps. then they stop for like 3-5sec and then 2 more and this repeats over and over.  I can not find the beep code for this. Is this the Bios?, overheating? or ram? I love the PC and would to really have it back.

I've tried everything I can find on the forums, but nothing will make the brightness adjustments work - can anyone help? The brightness slider does nothing - HP are rapidly driving me mad!

My 8-year old HP Touchsmart (a fantastic machine) is running extremely slow.
 
I can't say that it happened suddenly - more like slower and slower over time.
 
We upgraded to Windows 7 Professional several years ago and it has run fine for several years.
 
Right now it's on the verge of what can be considered usable - my spouse mainly uses it for reading email in the browser but it is painfully slow.
 
I have run Malwarebytes but couldn't see any serious security issues.
 
I'm hoping that you guys can guide us through at least a cursory review of possibly unneeded things that might be slowing the machine down.
 
I have a attached a basic snippet from the control panel System Info screen.
 
Thanks in advance for your help and time. 
 
We'll attempt to follow instructions carefully and will not attempt any other steps/remedies in the mean time.
 
If this is not the right forum, please direct me to a good place!

Anyone know 1) if I can and 2) how I can blow out the dust from inside my HP Touchsmart PC? I've always cleaned the dust out of my old computer but with this all-in-one PC I'm not sure if I can. Will it void a warranty? What are my options? Thanks!
