New to the forum, and I'm hoping someone has a solution for me. I have been having an issue with my touchscreen... it doesn't respond at all. It had been working, and while I don't know exactly when it stopped, it's not working now. I have a Pavillion 15-n023cl, running on up-to-date Windows 10 64-bit.
Everything else is working fine...the display is in pristine condition, and there are no cracks, stray lines, scratches, or anything out of the ordinary on the screen that would make me believe it's a screen issue.
I've tried just about everything on the forums and on the Internet, including:
- Cleaned off the screen with a microfiber screen-wipe
- Restarted the laptop...removed the power cord and battery, tried again...still not working
- Updated all drivers via the HP driver app
- Did a system restore back to a point where I knew the touch screen had been working
- Reinstalled AMD drivers and input drivers
- Flashed the bios to the most current version
- I've looked in the setup for a setting that would control the touch screen
- In Device Manager, under Human Interface Devices, there are only two drivers listed: HID- compliant wireless radio controls and HP Wireless Button Driver. Under Hidden Devices, there is an item HID-compliant touch screen. However, it's grayed out, and right clicking only gives me the options to Update Driver Software, Uninstall, Scan for hardware changes, and Properties. No Enable. I've tried all of them..including uninstalling to attempt to force they system to re-install the drivers. Nothing has worked.
I've tried every item in Settings, and can't seem to get the the touch screen to work.
Any new suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Then maybe I can get some sleep!
Thanks in advance!

Thabnkjs for the reply!
I opened the article you sent, and I had performed the relevant steps -- up to the UEFI diagnostics -- and they either didn't work, or the options weren't available.
I tried the UEFI diagnostics, but pressing F2 after the hard restart brought up an entirely different screen from the one in the artice. Mine was a very simple white on black screen, with only 3 choices: hard drive test, memory test, and exit. Looking at the screenshots in the article, I downloaded the software and installed it. However, the same screen would come up after the restart | F2, so I installed the software onto a USB stick, reset the start order in the BIOS, and the diagnostics came up.
THat's where the story ends, as there was no choice in the list for the touch screen. Closest thing in the list was mouse/touchpad, but that was not what I needed.
I'm going to wait to try the Windows reset...I want to back up the laptop first.
Interesting find...when I go to the device in Device Manager, the touch screen is in the hidden items, and, as I had said earlier, grayed out. I looked at the Events tab, and it showed that the screen had been configured at one point (10/19/2016) in input.inf. So I looked for that file, and the touch screen does appear to be in the file:
Don't know what all that means, but should I assume the Touch Screen is being found? Or, more accurately that it was found and running back in October, but somethng happened between then and now to render it unusable. I cannot go that far back with system restore, so after I back up, I'll try to restore Windows.
I just don't relish the thought of having to reinstall everything that's already been installed.
I'll post more when I have it.

Solution 1 :
First in Device manager,
Right click on HID-compliant touch screen
Click allow and follow uninstallation procedure.
Then Download the Driver given below and install it.
Solution 2 : I found solution to common touchscreen issues in this blog. It may help you too.
Solution 3 :You may need to replace your Screen. If warranty period hasn't expired then you need to contact hp. Otherwise Replace Screen From nearby Authorized service provider.

Thanks for the reply!
Unfortunately, none of the solutions you proposed worked.
I downloaded the driver, and when I ran it, the following error appeared:
Nothing in the blog was new information; I had tried all of that before, and nothing worked.
Thanks for reaching out, though.
