  • Datalux touch screen issues

    I got a LMV10R. For some reason, the touch screen isn't being detected. Is the fact that I'm running 2 monitors a possible problem?

    Are you getting a message saying that? Or does it say controller not detected, or? Obviously if you unplug one monitor and it solves it you should know the answer to that other part of your post

      Wierd stuff going on. According to the software, the touch screen isn't detected. Since it's not detected, I can't calibrate it. IF I make the datalux monitor 1, I can sort of operate the touch screen - i.e., I can open something, just not what I want. Still can't calibrate it. At least I know both work - they should, got it from ddt. Software is such a pain in the rear.

        i've had one for about 2 years and i was never able to get it to see the touchscreen so i couldn't calibrate it. but it did work ok. since i installed it in my car over the summer it sees it and works fine. i think i likes to be on com 1

          Ever tried running it through a USB converter? If I could get it to work that way, I'd be extremely happy - wouldn't have to get the second serial connector when I get the new Epia board.

            Make sure your com ports are configured correctly in your CMOS. Also make sure you're using the correct drivers. What drivers are you using?

              Got an example of properly configured com ports? The drives I'm using are 3M touchware 5.63SR3. I'm running XP.

                Do you have an internal hardware modem?

                If so, typical com port settings in the CMOS would be Com 1 set to 3F8, irq 4, and com 2 disabled. If you have an internal winmodem, you may or may not have com 2 disabled, but might also have com3 showing in windows. Make sure neither are disabled in device manager also.

                  I had to send in my LMV10R to Datalux to upgrade the touchscreen hardware when I switched to a laptop/docking station setup running WinXP. The touchscreen chip in the older LMV10R's will not work with WinXP. It needs to be upgraded to the Microtouch touchscreen chip that uses 3M's Touchware drivers. It was well worth the upgrade cost to me to be able to use it with WinXP. My old touchscreen had a dead spot on it and my casing had a big scratch in it so I paid to have a new touchscreen installed, the touchscreen hardware upgraded and the black plastic bezel (case) replaced with a new one. It cost me about $500 I think. You'll have to call Datalux for the cost of having just the touchscreen upgraded.
