I have an Acer Aspire z5610 and have Windows 8 installed, however I cannot get the touch screen to work. I could not find any drivers for touch on the Acer website.
Any ideas? Any help is much appreciated
Thanks in advance
Touch on Aspire Z5600 and Z5610 only works in Windows 7, not Windows 8. There is no driver for it.
Were there any changes made before the issue?
I would suggest you to try uninstalling and reinstalling the touch screen drivers in device manager and check if this helps.
a. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.b. Click System and Maintenance, click System, and then click Device Manager.
Note If Control Panel is in Classic View, double-click System, and then click Device Manager.If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.
c. In Device Manager, expand the appropriate category for the touch screen driver and right-click the listed driver. Here you will get all the option to update or Install/uninstall drivers. Click on Uninstall.Check if at all there is an exclamation mark along the driver, it suggests issues with the driver installed.d. Restart the computer. This will let the computer automatically detect the device drivers on restart of the computer. Now check if the issue resolves.If the issue persists you may contact or refer to the website of the computer manufacturer and get the latest drivers installed for the touch screen to work properly.
Refer to the below mentioned link for updating the drivers -http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/Update-a-driver-for-hardware-that-isnt-working-properly
Also refer:Calibrating the touch screen in Windows 7

Hope this helps!
Thanks for your response
I saw some other threads, and people were able to find drivers that would work with windows 8 that would allow the touch functionality. Since others got it to work, I thought they could be a possibility that I could also get it working.
e.g. In this thread someone got it to work with an Acer Asoire z5600 http://community.acer.com/t5/Acer-All-In-Ones-Desktops/HELP-Acer-Aspire-All-In-One-Touch-Screen-after-Windows-8-Pro/td-p/5179
I will check device manager, and post back
Drivers for Windows 8 are different from W7.
Thanks for your response. I understand that. But the fact that people with this model got it to work in thius thread convinced me to get it working on mine
It looks like they got it working in the link. Is there anway I can get it working
And by the way, there are not touch drivers for windows either.
