press F2 for the setup utility at startup

to get into bios and search thru the bios till you find a sleep mode or wake from sleep

select wake from usb

that should then give you the option to wake your netbook from your touch screen.


it acts like a mouse type

if you stuff it up, look for reset to default on main bios page.

look thru bios first though to get a feel for everything. that way you will get confident using the bios and make less mistakes.

don't worry i have made so many mistakes that is easy to fix.

Hi Christopher

i gave it a go and found the control panel via F2 but does not have a ""wake from USB"option.

i must of done something while fiddling iether there or else where as the touch screen now not displaying or in sync.

will have to get IT man to reset.

my IT skills are zip i am afraid.

IT man did have a go at starting from touch screen but wasnt able, but i have found info on net and here before that has enabled us to do stuff that IT man didnt know of.

regards
GN

At least you tried
do you have a msn account
if you do i can do something from this end

my msn is chris_pollock5@hotmail.com

if you don't it's free to setup and easy to use.


if you go into to bios you can reset to default should be on your main bios page.

All the above will only work if the connection is USB. If the screen is attached using the av out video cables then there is no way for you to do it.

Hi Mike

the touch screen is connected via a rear serial port as well as a USB connection

I'd suggest that this is actually the rear video port (15 pin connector) rather than a serial connection and a USB connection.

The touch screen would not be working at all if only attached via the AV out video cables as all touch screens basically act in place of the mouse.

It may be that rather than "wake from usb" you need to use "wake from mouse" and set "usb mouse" active in the bios.

Cheers
Ross
