    Angry Xenarc sent me the 700YY!

    GOt my Xenarc today and was all excited until I read the model number on the back and noticed it was a 700Y-Y and NOT a TS!

    Needless to say I am not happy!

    What do I do?? I waited all this time to get the wrong thing.

    OK after PM'n InFix he said his was also 700Y-Y but his touch screen worked so I went through the whole XP installation and it works..

    I'll be damned. But I still can't figure out why they put the wrong model number on it.

    Ill try again. Hopefully it works because when I installed at first it wasn't working.

    Edit:

    Mu ha ha ha ha. I got it working!

    Too bad I noticed I have a dead pixel

    Be glad you've only got one. Mine has 9 bad pixels and the power cord falls out if you look at it funny. Also the whole picture seems very yellow.

    Ive read somewhere if there is more than 6 pixels dead you can return it for an exchange. I dunno if Xenarc has the same policy. The again depends on the company.

    hmm, well I'm gonna call them tomorow and find out. For as much as it cost it should be perfect, or at least near it.

    Now, are you sure the pixels are burned out? I thought I had a couple at first, but it was dust in-between the touchscreen and the LCD.

    Are they lighting up? If not, you're more than likely looking at dust.

    I hope you don't have any dead pixels but it seems from the other posts I read that maybe Xenarc just decided to take all their Grade B Refurbs and throw a touch screen controller in it thus the 700Y-Y Models with touch screens.

    Of course mine is in great condition except for the fact that the screen isn't as bright as I thought it was going to be. I though 250nits would be alot brighter than that.

    they show up red green or blue on dark backgrounds, so it isn't dust
