Just got myself a Lilliput 8" VGA touchscreen. Tried loading it onto my laptop but it continually froze. Then it wouldn't let me uninstall. The laptop had to be completely reformatted and rebuilt which hurt a lot. However after the rebuild the program was loaded and same thing happened. Has any one experienced the same problem?

I have had a similar issue with my 7" Lilliput Touchscreen. The drivers are a load of rubbish. Caused the laptop to lock up or run very slowly. I was able to uninstall the drivers though, however, it required a bit of manual mucking around and hacking of the registry to clear all the rubbish out. Just gave up on te touch screen side of things and use an optical mouse instead. So am not too disappointed. Its still a nice screen.

the installation program for the drivers is rooted.
You are better off getting windows to search the CD for the drivers, and installing them that way. To uninstall, press the windows logo on your keyboard and pause-break at the same time, go to hardware > device manager > right click the offending device and click uninstall.
If you uninstall then boot up again with the monitor plugged in it should ask for the drivers- then get windows to search the CD that was sent with the monitor.

Thanks Sam and therat - I have now done the same thing - just used it as a standard monitor. I will be velcroing the screen to the dash for now and use the mouse.
Thanks again.

ps - funny how no one mentioned of any problems in the feedback section of eBay.

How do you think I held the 9323 control head on the Canning trip. Velcro. Wonderful stuff if you buy the brand name gear - and what the 2 inch wide stuff self adhesive stuff won't hold isn't worth holding.

You can use just the hook side to tape cables and other stuff to carpet on dash mats and floors too. Oh and the Satphone antenna cable was held along the roof rack with .... you guessed it! Velcro.

The MP3 player was .... velcro'd.

The mike for the 9323 sat up on the dash carpet with... velcro.

It's great. Take an extra metre of both sides in each size and you'll find uses for it too. The adhesive on the Velcro branded self adhesive velcro sticks like bleep to a blanket and comes off later with very little residue. (Any residual can be tacked off with the back of the bit you just pulled off.)

Almost makes me wish I had carpet in the courier .. until I remember how wet the inside of the truck got in that muddy bog hole. But I am ordering a dash carpet for it.... oh and some more velcro....

At the risk of sounding Dumb. ( Ishould be used to it), By opitical mouse, do you mean a cord less mouse.
I have been looking at going down the touch screen track but I may have to re think the whole idea.

An optical mouse is one that uses light instead of a trackball like old mice. look under the mouse- if it has balls then its a traditional old-syle. These get gummed up easily and are a pig to use when they get old or dirty. For optical when you lift it you will see an LED flashing, just give it a quick blow when its dirty and its good as new again. I cant think of any newer cordless mice that are not optical.

I am using a Logitech MX310 optical mouse with cord right now.
Bought last month.
Had to hunt for it though on the Logitech web site so I had a part number to quote my supplier.
Gave up on those cordles ones for normal use, batteries went flat too quickly. Cordless works well on the laptop with rechargable battaries.

I agree with Groove. Have had a lillyput touchscreen for about the same time, and downloaded the drivers. Works an absolute treat...

Just back from our central Aus trip and after 7.700kms with the screen velcroed to the dash it was marvelous. Even over extremely heavy corrugated tracks, smashing into ditches and huge water ponds, the screen did not budge or lose signal. The laptop on the other hand was struggling at times especially when the hard drive was running.

Groove - I downloaded the drivers from the site that you linked, however it still won't run. The laptop with XP recognises new hardware, but I don't think the program has installed. I have uninstalled using device manager and reinstalled a few times but without success. Any other hints?
