The touch display of my HP Pavilion x360 – 14-dh1001ng causes unwanted mouseclicks. For example: I'm typing a text in word, suddenly it feels as if someone just clicks rapidly on the screen. It's impossible to work. 2nd example: The desktop it visible, suddenly 10 instances of an app are started and shown on the screen. See video.
What have I done so far:
- Uninstalled drivers of lately installed docking station
- Re-installed and updated all relevant drivers (Touchpad, mouse, graphics)
- Updated windows
- Cleaned up registry
- Checked thouroughly for viruses
Can someone give me a hint, what to do? My next idea would be to reset to factory settings.
The guarantee is over since 3 months. Is there a repair service from HP?
Any help apprectiated.

@Frank67166, Welcome to the HP Support Community!
Check if the issue occurs in safe mode.

Thanks for your help! Appreciated!!
But that's what I already did. I've also made an BIOS update. At the end I resetted the system completely. But no succces. I'm pretty sure it's a hardware issue now. Disappointing for a 15 month old laptop from a vendor like HP. HP support offered me a little discount for a new laptop or a repair (for ~280€). Both options are not really sexy. Let's see. Maybe I switch to DELL.
But many thanks for your help. Stay save! Frank
