Hello! I have had my Asus Taichi 31 for about a month, and since I have updated to Windows 8.1, the touch screen has not worked. Only the normal screen works. I’ve tried googling a fix, but I am not very tech savvy at all and have had difficulties finding solutions. Apparently it might have something to do with Windows 8.1 updating Intel to 9.18 or something? I would love some help – but try to explain it in very simple terms please!

Try the troubleshooter

  1. Run the hardware troubleshooter by pressing the ‘Windows + W’ key on the keyboard and then type troubleshooting in the search box
  2. Now go to hardware and sound and run the Hardware and Devices Troubleshooter
  3. Restart after following the instructions

Tweak the touch screen drivers

  1. Press “Windows Logo” + “X” keys on the keyboard
  2. Now select “Device Manager” from there
  3. Go to “Human Interface Devices” and expand it, look for the Touch Screen device from the device list
  4. After finding it, right click and then select “Uninstall”
  5. If you encounter the “Delete the driver software for this device”, you can go ahead and do that
  6. Follow the instructions and restart
  7. Now go to Device Manager again and then click on the “Scan for hardware changes” button
