Blew dust off, searched, and still no touchscreen on Lilliput - help!
I've been a lurker for awhile, reading and learning as I acquired parts for my project. Now that I finally have acquired the base components for my planned install, personal beta tested the software I want to use, I am now ready to begin mounting and installing.
First, I should list the setup to get everyone on the same page:
Notebook: Sony VAIO (PCG-F590K) / 256MB / 30G / OEM Docking Station
WLAN: SMC2632W PCMCIA
Screen: Lilliput 7" Touchscreen VGA
OS: Win2K SP4
Planned interface: Media Engine
GPS: M$ S&T2005 / Pharos USB GPS360
Mounting has been a challenge in a VW Bug, but I'll discuss that elsewhere, and I think I have it.
Now that I'm working on the software load, I finally decided to play with the touchscreen. Many moons ago, (maybe six+ months) I ordered a Xenarc from DigitalWW. I think it's Armen I was working with, based on post reads here. Anyway, he had run out of Xenarcs, and it was going to take time to get anything in, but he offered me a Lilliput with touch instead for the same price. I agreed to the terms, and he shipped it when it finally came in (I waited awhile for it). I plugged in the vga to test for bad pixels, but since I didn't have a test machine to work with, I didn't load the software (and kept the plastic wrap on the screen), so I didn't test the touchscreen part. The project was put on hold for awhile due to parts acquisition, and work being a bear.
Finally, I have everything ready to install, and while foaming at the mouth, I lovingly peeled the cellophane protectant off, and began to play with the software. I installed the CD provided (no label on it !?), and tried the touchscreen - no good. I uninstall, and download the latest drivers listed on DigitalWW's site - no good. I run hours and hours of searches on mp3car.com, try the FAQ, try reconnecting everything - no good. :confused: :confused: :confused:
At this point, I'm really heartbroken, as everything I've purchased for this project has been a nightmare. The original pc purchased has power supply problems, the laptop I planned to use after that died, and now the touchscreen isn't working! :mad:
So, I try to contact DigitalWW. I call, and the voicemail box is full, no answer. I try to send a request for support through his online form - page comes back broken - I dunno if it was sent. I feels as if I've been left high and dry.
Can anyone help? Perhaps someone has had the same pain, and could point out some good reading. The screen is quite pretty, but the touchscreen was the centerpoint for my input. If I am screwed as far as the touchscreen goes, then I would greatly appreciate some response on other input methods.
Thanks in advance!
