Since the installation of the new N-Trig driver for Win 7 x64, as much posted in this forum, the 'Smart" gestures don't work anymore. There are only "normal" gestures recognition like pressing, pen wrinting, the traditional touchscreen features. No more multitouch, neither the "Paint" recognizes well two fingers at same time. The pince gestures to reduce/ampliate disappears, so the "ghost mouse" of original Win Vista.
I've tried many tricks posted here and on the net, but it's always the same, neither a clean system installation solved.
And there are a lot of incompatibilities of the new Win7 drivers and softwares like fingerprint recognition and all the MediaSmart programs. It only works using the Vista x64 drivers.
When HP will post the drivers and programs really compatible to Win7. It's really disgusting this so long delay to correct these big issues.

Same overhere, I have tried an upgrade and I have tried a clean install. But Multi touch is gone, it is just an expensive tablet pc.
N-trig does not react on mail either.
I hope a solution will come soon.

Did you install the Win7 N-Trig driver package downloadable from HP or from somewhere else?
To have multi-touch working under win7 both driver and FW must be updated. The SW downloadable from HP includes both driver and FW to get multi-touch working.
64-bit N-Trig driver: SP45835

I have used th drivers available with HP en N-Trig. Both give me a TouchSmart 1050ed TX-2 with dual touch, no multi touch.
Do you have a version of the driver?

I've installed the driver from HP as you mentioned. But the dual or multi-touch does not work.
Only the Win7 buit-in features are avaiable. I've installed the beta to Win7 from N-Trig and worked fine, but since i've upgrade (or downgrade ...) to the official HP version my touch "is just an expensive tablet pc".
I copy here the post i've writed to Pelldom in other thread that describes better:
The last version of N-Trig DuoSense driver simple does not support the multitouch features. You can try using two fingers in MS Paint and see that it flows with many errors on detecting the fingers.
On the beta driver of N-Trig for Win7 RC much of the features of Multitouching still work, as well as a good 4 fingers recognition. When I upgrade to this version, it enables only the Win7 built-in gestures. I tried to install back the beta driver but the firmware does not go back...
I thing N-Trig has a big problem to not release the final version of full Multitouch driver for Win7, although the beta version I tried worked fine for me.
So, if you plan to upgrade to Win7 knows that your TouchSmart will become only a traditional Touchscreen notebook. No more Smart!
Why is HP delaying so much to publish the right drivers for Win7? I've bought this computer mainly because of multitouching and with the Win7 upgrade. But HP does not support well this version. There are many other posts here describing that the principal HP multi-touch features (screen driver, complete touch-pack) simple doesn't install nor work... This is my first HP and probably will be the last.

Are you using the latest N-trig multitouch drivers from the N-trig website?
I would use program uninstall to remove any old N-trig software (should roll back the firmware also) - and then install the latest Win 7 driver bundle from the link above.
There are also release notes at the N-trig site.

I've tried also the driver direct from N-Trig (that's the same as HP). Works the same manner.
I'm an IT expert, member of Technet. I have a litlle experience with computers, and so belive, I've tried all the always and the tricks posted on internet to try to solve this problem...
The Touchscreen even can not support a single touch (pressing to "right click"). It blinks showing many Win7 buit-in gestures (copy, paste, foward...) and cannot open the list.
It's really boring me. I've made a clean instalation twice already... it's really problem of N-Trig driver. There are a lot of posts on the net complaining about it.
Thanks the help.

I have the same problem.
Everything worked fine under Vista 64, then I upgraded to Win 7.
If I use the HP multitouch drivers for my tx2, I get a failed install ("The operating system is not adequate for running.")
If I use the N-Trig drivers (mentioned in this thread, everything goes fine, installs, N-Trig appears in Control Panel, but none of the settings I alter in either the Pen+ Touch (native win7) panel or in the N-Trig panel activates any multitouch features. It only works in the generic windows way.
I find this pretty unacceptable! Win 7 has been available (to developers) for a very long time. I can no longer work in Tablet mode, without panning etc. functionality ...

People, please read up on how HP is screwing you the consumer!
There are many other brands with better quality and service. Make them understand what the power of the consumer is.
They will tell you the same thing, it is not their responsibility and they cannot say how you the consumer used the product. As far as HP is concerned, the product left their hands in good shape and so they cannot comment ~ which equates to Its your problem, you caused the computer problem but if you pay us more and waste more time, we will be glad to replace any part. Thank you for your patronage - SUCKERS!
It is something you should tell your friends and everyone you know to never support HP so their stock price will reflect the truth and they will sit up and listen.

I, too, have the same problem. N-trig works fine on Vista 64, but it is gone after I upgrade to Win 7 64. When I install the latest driver from HP site, I get "The operating system is not adequate for running." I even use RevoUninstall to completely uninstall the previous driver and clean the registry, but still have the same problem. Now no multi-touch. This really sucks - with out multi-touch what the heck is the difference between the tx2 and another notebook - the expensive HP price??!!
