  1. Hmmm… must be a hardware problem in my Dell – got an error msg about a usb device attempting to draw too much power… after that, no more error msg, no touch screen functionality, and no driver, dimmed or otherwise showing in device manager – either before or after a complete windows reinstall….

  2. After trying the previous options, I uninstalled the HID-compliant touch screen driver, however it did not reinstall upon restart.

    I tried running Windows Update and troubleshooting, but to no avail.

  3. The touch screen on my Windows 10 Dell Inspiron 13 suddenly stopped working, when it was working fine yesterday. I checked the Device Manager and saw that the HID compliant touchscreen driver was hidden, but apparently working fine. I rebooted my laptop, disabled then enabled the HID compliant touch screen driver, it didn’t make a difference. I checked the driver for updates, nothing. I even tried to roll back the driver but my laptop is pretty new, I’ve only had it for two months, so that option wasn’t available. My laptop is apparently up to date, with no new updates available. How to I get back the touch screen?

  4. also had touch screen issue…it stops working and it said there was a power control issue. finally, i tried disabling it and then enabling it….and that worked.

  5. Hi i yes replace a broken screen on my hp 15d020dx but the new screen is not responding properly only the upper left corner is functioning is there anything i should do in order for this to function thanks

  6. Tried all of the above without success, the touch screen driver is still missing in Win 10 home, after reset, etc.
    Did the F2 boot, ran test on touch screen and all worked correctly. The problem is not with the hardware, but windows software. Can’t find the driver on HP website. Help please

  7. Same concern as everyone else… I just purchased this laptop and my touch screen didn’t work and I have no sound. I was sent instructions and none of those worked either. I need the touch screen and sound. These are the two most important features for me!!
