ACER ICONIA 484G64NS or 6120 Dual Screens - Ghost Touches

benjo55benjo55 Posts: 3Member



Can ACER please have any official words about this problem, starting firstofall to acknowledge the problem which clearly affect plenty of these ACER ICONIA 484G64NS or 6120 ?


Why is it so difficult for ACER to face responsabilities ? Trade issues ? contempt for the customer ?


Because Acer policy seems not to refund money, I hope that a SOLUTION coming from ACER will be sent to owners of this nice machine (by the way).


I think it is pathetic to waste time looking for forums to find any help, at the point that people ask you for money to get a fix


See http://www.notebookforums.com/t/240616/acer-iconia-6120-loss-of-touch-control/40


Sorry to be upset after ACER, but this behavious is unbearable

    Good day


    If I recall, I got rid of this problem by going to services and having the touch engine module on manual and anything that had the word touch, set it on manual. That solved my problem forever. I have sold the notebook so I cannot recall the exact settings that I had it on. Just change anything you see about touch to manual.

    The fact is that I have installed Windows 8 Pro on the machine, but without installing anything coming with the DVDapp. So there are not any service related to ACER touch that is launched.


    The solution is anywhere else ... probably a hardware problem that ACER do not want to face, don't you think ? (as is it encoutered both in W7 and W8 environments)

    Find the modifications necessary to do the ghosting repairs here free of charge.


    I have put the tape on my lower screen and it does work. I disabled touch on the upper screen as it is only used for viewing in my case.

    It is a shame that Acer developed an outstanding product but failed massively on their customer support.

    Cheers; Glenn

    can anyone re-up the YouTube video?



    It's the only one I briefly saw that actually stepped through the fix and not just the problem

  • maniacimimaniacimi Posts: 3Member



    he already postet a new video!


    but attention this is not his idea and its not the solution of this problem

    where I do know this? I am the developer of this Fix


    Yes its only a Fix not a Solution!


    I already have found the Issue and already have a real Solution and Fix

    Its working since more then one Week!


    Perfect, no Issues anymore and 100% CPU power!


    I already have posted a Video of it!

    It causes no damage to the Laptop and all Problems are gone


    1. Screen goes blank if you close them (look Video)

    2. Fan is working normal, no jumps up and down

    3. no ghost touches (no jumps)

    4. 100% CPU ( you won´t loose any CPU Power anymore)



    My other Solution with Foam Tape did only solve Problem for some days or weeks! I do not recommend this anymore. It can cause burn or other damages! And until People are not posting my Ideas as their own in some Blogs, I do not tell anybody what causes Ghost Touch and what is the Real Fix!


    Everybody can tear down his Laptop and then put Foam Tape between Touch Panel and LCD Screen


    But Attention. This can damage your Laptop immortal. He never developed this Fix, so he do not know what Problems it can cause! So Attention! I do know it!


    here the link of this scammer and fraudster



    here the link for my first Fix with Foam Tape 



    here the link for my second and end Resulting Solution of this Problem! ( Attention I did not post it actually because People steal my Ideas)


    here the Video of it!

    my method is faster... no need to open the whole macine, just screen part , but great work.

    easy method http://senpa.us  and click ghost touch fix... foam tape may let thru electromagnetism.. i suggest you use electrician tape... plastic type used for serious stuff and not for freeze bags and paint mask.

    is there any official solution from acer support  ????????????????

    From what i can gather, acer still refuses to accept that there is a fundamental flaw with the hardware of this pc.


    Mine has ben doing it off and on since i got it. I can live with it for the moemnt, but if it gets worse will take in back to seller..as i had a two year warranty


    I havent tried rungrangkei's solution with the electrical tape and increased vent aperture. Despite looking extensively on internet the only oyher person who claims to have a permanent solutiion is someone who wants paying for it. His perogative..but i dont like that he uses these communities to 'advertise' his solution.

    Now that that you have taken you tablet apart and put it all back together to find that your fix only lasted a few weeks try this…

    1 - Set your windows update so you can pick and choose what you update. Not automatic.

    2- Download the original VGA driver from here. http://www.acer.co.uk/ac/en/GB/content/drivers and save it somewhere. If you have moments like me you will probably need it again.

    3 – Install the driver ignoring the message that you are loading an older version. Done

    4 – When choosing your updates select whatever you need except - Intel Corporation driver update for intel® HD graphics  -

    Cheers; Glenn

    I have only had this working a few days and cannot say how long it will last.

    There are other problems with printer updates shutting down VPN tunnels but that is another post.

    If this doesn't work for you please post a note.

    Hi Glenn


    Thanks for the advice. Unfortunately when i try to install the original VGA driver downloaded from the Acer website,  it comes up with a message telling me 'the driver being installed for this computer is not validated. Please obtain the appropriate driver from the computer manufacturer'. It does not give me the option to ignore this message.


    Any ideas?




  • eddieward10eddieward10 Posts: 4Member

    Following on from last email.....i worked out how to install the earlier version of the driver....but unfortunately it didnt help. still got the ghost touches. Anyway for the moment have disabled the top screen touch input and just use a mouse in conjunction with the touch keyboard. This seems to have cured the problem of the ghost touching on the top screen....although once in a while the virtual keyboard stops working and the touch monitor engine process sticks at 25% CPU power. shame tho not to be able to use touch screen functionality to its full potential.
