Re: VAIO laptop touch screen with cursor in transparent circles and squares

Hi Moidiaro,

 

It's a good thing that the circles aren't there anymore. Just to be sure, we can try to calibrate the touch screen display. This will determine if the issue is still in your computer or not. Hope everything works out.

Re: VAIO laptop touch screen with cursor in transparent circles and squares

Thanks Mark but I'm loathe to do anything to it while its working properly i.e. "if it aint broke, don't fix it".

Re: VAIO laptop touch screen with cursor in transparent circles and squares

Hey there Moidiaro!

Its nice to hear the the issue with the screen is gone. If ever you encounter those again, you may try doing the step that MarkPa mentioned above.

 

Hit back if you encounter those again.

Re: VAIO laptop touch screen with cursor in transparent circles and squares

I sometimes have these annoying circles and crazy as it may be, my problem seems to be from some dirt or something on the touch screen.

What works for me is to turn off the computer or put it to sleep and then clean the screen with a glass cleaner and a sort cloth. Try it, don't cost nothin'.

Re: VAIO laptop touch screen with cursor in transparent circles and squares

This issue started about a month ago. I have tried all solutions and none of them have worked for me except disableling the touch screen. 

 

At first it started when I would wake up the screen it would not respond to touches for and it would fix it self withing a minute. It only got worse after a week or so. One day it just stoped responding, a touch circle would appear in the center of the screen and the touch coursor stuck in it. I tried rebooting and still did not work eventually after 10 minutes it worked again.

 

After a while I did notice that the issue woud start when I touched the bazel to adjust the screen, sometimes just the lightes toch would do. Eventually I noticed that if i ligthly twisted the bazel, more circles would appear (about 4) but after abit it fixe itself sometimes for a good couple of hours.

 

One day need to use the laptop and the issue persisted. I decided to grab a small suction cup and placed it where the touch creen was acting up. I pressed on it and pulled on the screen for a bit a, for and it worked. 

Eventually I did this on the corners of the screen and center. For a week now the screen has been working perfectly. 

 

This seems to be hardware related. If you want to try this please be careful not break your screen just pull on gently. 

 

Good luck.

Re: VAIO laptop touch screen with cursor in transparent circles and squares

[ Edited ]

I have had the same problem with my VAIO model SVT151A11L from Best Buy.

 

My problem first appeared when i upgraded to win 8.1. The circles made my laptop basically unusable so I restored it back to Win 8.0 and all was fine. After research, I figured I should have upgraded as Sony recommended so I tried it that way (upgraded all the Sony software first) - SAME PROBLEM so I had to restore back to win 8.0 again and all was fine.

Finally  I decided to try again -  SAME PROBLEM so I had to restore back to win 8.0 again.

 

Now just a week or so ago the circles appeared again on windows 8.0. I restored the laptop back to before the last update patches that Windows sent out (was on automatic updates) and the problem is again fixed.

 

What gives here, will I not be able to update the laptop at all any more?

 

Now I have NOT done the calibration of the touchscreen yet so i will do that tonight and will try that should it ever appear again but the point is there is something that is not right here.

 

 

I have a video at http://youtu.be/3cdohmSoL98

 

UPDATE

The cicles came back so i had to remove more updates that Microsoft installed. I DID however test out the screen calibration solution that was mentioned elsewhere with NO LUCK. Nothing worked but unstalling the upgrades.

Re: VAIO laptop touch screen with cursor in transparent circles and squares

They're back!! I know what does it now though. I sneezed rubbed the specks off the screen and immediately three circles appeared and I can't get rid of them. I've tried all the fixes as before so I'm just hoping that they will go away on their own like last time.
