    The step we did to fix few of the hardware issue but still if you have the issue than we need to check by sending to the unit to Acer repair center and you telling like its the second time its happening . so need to check on it. In order to contact Acer check the below link

    Thanks for replying Jack, I tried that last year when I first had the problem and it WORKED! for a very short time but the problem wasn't cured because the exact same thing happened again a few days later.

    When it first happened last year, I can remember it immediately happened after the Chrome OS update.

    I thought because a year had gone past, somebody might have found a different solution to my problem, my chromebooks perfect for my needs, just the touchscreen no longer works and I used to use it all the time.
