If the Touch Screen Starts to Lose Sensitivity
Improper calibration may lead to inaccurate touch sensitivity.
The touch screen may have foreign particles (such as sticky notes) that are blocking the touch sensors. To remove these particles:
1. Turn off the computer.
2. Disconnect the AC adapter cable from the wall outlet.
Do not use water or a cleaning liquid to wipe the touch screen.
3. Use a clean, lint-free cloth (you may spray mild, non abrasive cleaner or water on the cloth if needed, but not on the screen) and wipe the surface and sides of the touch screen to remove any dirt or fingerprints.
