Re: sony vaio flip 15a touch screen issue on Win 8.1 Model: SVF15N17CXB

Hello everyone,

 

I'm just chiming in because I have this same touch screen problem. It was working fine yesterday (for the most part), but now my touch screen has is becoming unresponsive/dead more and more.

 

I'm not sure if I should return exhange this at Best Buy for (hopefully) non-faulty or wait for a fix. I've read some reviews from people who don't seem to have a problem. So I'm guessing that not every unit is broken...

It's too early for me to tell whether this is a permanent fix, but after applying the changes suggested in this post over at TabletPCReview, I was able to go over an hour this morning without loss of touch. Please check it out and report back. I'll test for a longer period this weekend.

I do not see anything using VAIO update.  where did you see a BIOS update?

THis is what the Bios update says: "This utility installs an updated version of the BIOS software to resolve issues where USB devices may not be recognized or detected after upgrading to Windows® 8.1 and the battery icon may be unavailable. This update also improves thermal management"
No mention of a touch screen fix, unless that somehow falls under USB....at least they are updating something, I guess :smileyhappy:

@jastow

 

If you go to http://vcl.vaio.sony.co.jp/download/EP0000315806.html , (you'll need a browser that translates, like Chrome) it says one of the updates is for "Sometimes touch panel does not work with update to Windows 8.1." 

 

I downloaded that file and it matches the one offered on the US support site.

 

So far, I've had no touch issues or fan issues since installing it.

 

I have: 15 Flip with i7, 8gb or ram, the GT 735M graphics card, 256GB SSD, and the QHD display.
