5. Rollback drivers
When you install the latest OS updates using Windows Update, the system also installs the latest drivers. However, sometimes the newest drivers aren’t fully compatible with your system configuration which could trigger various problems.
In this case, rolling back to default drivers may fix the problem.
Launch Device Manager, right click on the HID-compliant touch screen and go to Properties. Navigate to the Driver tab and click on ‘Roll Back Driver’.
If you want to avoid similar issues in the future, you can block Windows 10 from auto updating certain drivers. To find out more about this, check out our step-by-step guide that will help you do just that.

Windows 10 also features a built-in troubleshooter that you can use to fix general technical issues. For touchscreen issues, the best solution is to run the Hardware and Devices Troubleshooter.
Go to Settings, click on Update & Security, select Troubleshoot, and launch the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter.
Once the troubleshooter completed the scan process, restart your computer and check if the issue persists.

All you need to do is shut down your computer completely. Wait for a few seconds and then unplug the power cord. Now, hold the power button for 1 minute. Plug your computer back in and the touchscreen should work now.
