    Touch screen, wrong orientation...?

    Installed the TouchScreen drivers, when trying to calibrate it always fails on the 3rd point - the touchscreen seems to think it is 'rotated' by 90 degrees - eg, press a point on the screen and the cursor appears, press to the RIGHT of that point and the cursor moves UP the screen. Or press a point on screen, then press another point BELOW and the cursor moves to the RIGHT. Basically the touchscreen needs 'rotating' 90 degrees in software - it will not calibrate and always fails on 3rd point, on 25 point too (I assume it is the rotation problem causing this)
    I noticed a utility called RotTray, but this seems to need 3rd party software (Pivot?) to function - any suggestions..? (Win98se, USB 7" touchscreen)

    Cheers for suggestion - tried what you said - removed mouse etc - uninstalled drivers - reinstalled drivers etc with exactly the same results :/
    I've just set it up on a totally separate machine and it is exactly the same grrrr - I feel like ramming a screwdriver through the f'king screen at the moment.

Do you have a mouse connected along with the touchscreen? That seemed to be my problem, i think. Try taking all of your peripherals off and trying one by one putting them back on. Thats what worked for me!

    i have the same problem, i think...

    i just bought a 10.4" lilliput and initially i just thought it needed calibration, so i found the latest drivers and installed them, but when i go to calibrate the first point never stops flashing, so to see what was happening i thought i'd bring up that draw screen, and this is what happens

    if i draw from the centre to the left the screen thinks i'm drawing down
    to the right, it thinks i'm drawing up
    if i go up, it thinks i'm going right
    if i go down it thinks i'm going left

    so its not even just rotated 90 degrees the one direction? the axis are completely confused? i hope its software not hardware related!

    can anyone help?

    Press and hold the calibration point.
    And there's no need to resurrect a 2 year old thread with a different problem.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
