Surface Touchscreen Troubleshooting

Check the display panel carefully. If the glass on your Surface touchscreen is cracked or broken, touch may not work.

Sometimes it has been found that if you have trouble touching just the item you want, consider using a Surface Pen or another capacitive stylus.

Clean your Surface display panel with a soft, lint-free cloth dampened with water or eyeglass cleaner. But never spray directly on panel.

Sometimes non-responsive screens back to normal after a simple restart.

Uninstall and reinstall Touch Screen driver via device manager. Make sure the related driver is the latest one.

  • Open device manager
  • Locate Human Interface Devices.
  • Right click on HID-compliant touch screen > Uninstall

Calibration is another tool which is used for Touchscreen troubleshoot.

  • Type Calibrate in the search box
  • use the arrow keys to highlight Calibrate the screen for pen or touch input, and then press Enter.
  • There is a Reset button which can be used to get factory settings.

Make sure that your Surface is not adjacent to  other electronic devices ,which can interfere with the touchscreen or make the cursor on your Surface move around unexpectedly.
