Re: Touch Screen driver for HP DreamScreen 400 for Windows 8

Hi Mr. Ahuja,

 

Try to install drivers in Win 7 Compatibility mode. I have tried this method for many devices, which are not compatible with Win 8 Pro.

 

Now all devices are working fine. 

 

This is the only solution available for your issue. Do not search anywhere for the Dreamscreen Drivers for Win 8. Use the Win 7 compatibility mode in Win 8.

Hello DEEPU_SINGH.  

I just wanted to provide a little more assistance along with your instructions.  I recently posted a thread in which I provide instructions for using drivers for older versions of Windows in Windows 8.  It will likely be useful to anyone who views your comment.  

 

How to use Windows 7 drivers in Windows 8.

 Dear Deepu,

 

Thanks a lot for your guidance, but unfortunately it could not work for me. May be I am missing something or some file is missing.

 

Request if you have some more knowledge about this and you can share with me.

Dear Mr. Ahuja,

 

If you are unable to find any driver updates after running the Windows updates and if you are not able to find the Windows 8 drivers in the HP website, then the only option is to install the latest driver available in the Windows 7 compatibility mode.

Download the setup file of the Windows 7 driver for the touch screen device and save it in your computer. To install the drivers in the Windows 7 compatibility mode follow the steps from this link:


http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/older-programs-compatible-version-windows


You can use these links for reference:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/hardware-drivers-help#hardware-drivers-help=windows-8

Hope this helps. Do get back to me for any issues. I will be glad to assist you.

Hi,

 

This even could not solve the problem, Infact calibration is even not working now.

 

Can I request an engineer visit at my place to rectify the issue.

Hello ___ and manoj_jindal.  

I have been unable to locate any information related to resetting the BIOS password available online.  I suggest that you contact HP Support directly and see if they're able to offer you any options.  If you're in the US/Canada the number is 1-800-474-6836.  If you're in another part of the world you'll need to visit HP Support Worldwide to get your region's contact information.

Have a great day!
