There is a new touchscreen (HID Digitizer) driver from eGalaxTouch here: http://home.eeti.com.tw/web20/eGalaxTou ... Driver.htm
This was released in March 2011 (v184.108.40.20606) as opposed to the January 2010 Beta driver on the Archos site.
EDIT: Driver installed and works great. You might
need to install the actual driver manually in Device Manager though.
Here is the procedure:
- First make sure you have an external mouse attached to the USB port.
- Uninstall the current touchscreen driver. This happens automatically when you run the setup package of the new driver.
- Install the new driver
--- Check "Install PS/2 Driver"
--- Uncheck "Install RS232 Driver"
--- Uncheck "MultiMonitor"
--- At the Calibration options screen pick "None"
- Run the eGalaxTouch calibration tool. If it can detect your device, then simply run the calibration and you're good to go.
If your device is not detected
in the eGalaxTouch tool, then follow the next few steps.
- Go to Control Panel -> Device Manager
- There should be an entry under the "Mice" category called HID PS/2 [something]. It should currently have the yellow warning triangle.
- Right click on the aforementioned entry, and pick Update Driver Software.
- Click "Browse my computer for driver software"
- Browse to C:\Program Files\eGalaxTouch (just highlight the eGalaxTouch folder). Click OK.
- The driver will now install. If there is a warning window, pick "Install anyway". This appears because the driver is not WHQL certified (not a big deal).
- Run the eGalaxTouch calibration tool, and calibrate your device.
Maybe its a placebo effect, but my screen appears more responsive with the new driver.
