  1. How to make changes in Device Manager permanent


    I have a touchscreen laptop which recently acquired a crack. Near this crack there will often be "ghost clicks". To try and stop this problem I disabled the HID compliant touch screen in Device manager. It worked. However the next day the touchscreen had re-enabled itself, and the ghost clicks were back. A few days later I disabled the touch screen again. I then turned my computer off and on again and restarted it and the touchscreen was still disabled. However it was again re-enabled the next day. Does anyone know why it keeps re-enabling itself and how to stop it? Note that I am not admin and that I needed the administrator of my computer to type in his password each time I want to disable the touchscreen.

    :)

    Imaging Devices missing in Device Manager and Webcam doesn't working

    Hi,

    Since you mentioned that the said driver is missing in Device Manager, what we suggest is for you to check in the Hidden Devices section on Device Manager. Kindly follow the steps below:

    • On the desktop, press Windows key + X and select
      Device Manager.
    • Click on View and select
      Show Hidden Devices.
    • Check for the webcam under Imaging Devices.
    • If the webcam is listed, then right-click on it and select
      Update Driver Software
    • Select Browse My Computer for Driver Software and follow the prompted steps.
    Please post back with the result for further assistance

    USB devices not working after Device Manager spring clean


    The USB ports started failing intermittently again and then permanently.

    Reinstalled 1703 again and that fixed it for a while then they started failing again.

    When I plug in any peripheral it shows up in device manager with the exclamation mark.

    I right-click 'update driver'
    Choose 'browse my computer...'
    'Let me pick from a list of...'
    Select the best candidate

    Then the device will work. Until it is unplugged and plugged in again...

    Then we are back to square one for that device.

    Are there any suggestions for kicking the USB hub back to life so it recognises ordinary USB devices like mouses and keyboards without a manual driver update?
