What is Windows 8 without a working touch screen?


  • December 12, 2012 I downloaded Windows 8 using my TechNet account.
    I installed Windows 8 from the DVD I created, keeping my Windows 7 user files. 
    I have no problem running Windows 8, except my touch screen doesn't work using my fingers.

    The mouse works. The pen works. Each finger touch only makes an error kind of beep.

    What is wrong? I've searched the Internet and can't find a solution.
    How many people with a Lenovo X220Tablet upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8?

    Am I the only one? Should I use a clean install? Could I've selected the wrong download from TechNet?

    Control Panel Item System says Windows Edition Windows 8 Pro.
    Pen and Touch is new in Windows 8. I don't remember seeing it in Windows 7 Control Panel.
    My Pen and Touch has only 3 tabs. On the Internet I've seen Pen and Touch with 5 tabs.
    Not only that, my open Touch tab has no Check box for "Use your finger as input device"
