Hi! My name is Derek and I'm here to help! Are you available for chat?

Customer :

yes

Dr-Obbins :

Great! Can you please tell me how the monitors are behaving that they are not working?

Customer :

i have only one hooked up right now alongside my 32" Haier monitor and when i touch the touchscreen it only shows up on the 32" and does not apply anything to the actual touchscreen

Dr-Obbins :

Alright, please download and install the drivers here: http://support.acer.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?modelId=2199

Dr-Obbins :

Alright, did you extract the files?

Alright, do you know how to access the device manager?

Customer :

Customer :

Dr-Obbins :

Alright, please find the touchscreen in the device manager, right click on it and select update driver. Guide through the process pointing it to the .inf file that you downloaded please.

Customer :

Customer :

Dr-Obbins :

Alright, so when you tried to update the driver, it said it was already installed?

  3. Click "Setup..." to the right of "Configure your pen and touch displays"
  4. Choose "Touch Input..."
  5. Hit the "Enter" key until you see the instructions appear on your actual touch monitor. Touch the screen and it will say something like "Hit enter to move to the next step".
