It started out as not happening very often to happening very often, in the upper right corner of my screen i am getting ghost touches and it usually closes whatever im doing on my laptop. It has gotten to the point the where i have to disable my screen to get anything done. Does anyone have a solution to this?

I have updated all drivers and windows, etc but it has no effect. Sometimes it happens constantly and sometimes it wont happen for an hour. So far I have noticed no pattern to reproduce it at will.
Is there a fix or is it a hardware issue and I should return it? I have exactly the same problem of "ghost touches" on my Samsung Notebook Pro 15" Were you able to give a solution that worked? I am interested to know. Or do I need to do a private email? This is happening to me as well. I too have had to disable my touchscreen which reduces functionality and the value of the laptop.

The same here, i have two computers, one the intel 7xxx and the other with intel 8xxx, so its a problem with the two generations.Keep in touch and stay productive with Teams and Officeeven when you're working remotely.

This glitches so often and bad to the point that I have had to disable my touch screen entirely.
How can I fix this? I have tried updating the driver for the touch screen as well as cleaning the screen and neither have worked. Did this solve your problem? Yes No. Sorry this didn't help. April 14, Keep in touch and stay productive with Teams and Officeeven when you're working remotely.

This makes the computer almost unuseable as the pointer keeps moving to the locations of the phantom touches on the screen. I was able to disable the driver to the touchscreen and use it as a normal laptop no touchscreen but I am surprized that such a new product would have these issues! I have another Samsung touchscreen laptop ATIV TAB 7 that I have owned for years with no problems so I was curious if anyone else with a spin style notebook was having any issues with their touchscreen.
Samsung customer support said they will fix it after I do the factory reset and it still is not working. Just frustrating that a new product would have issues like this. Go to Solution.

My Samsung Chromebook plus screen will not respond to finger touches.Crackables 2. Community Tech. Hint: it was never a software problem Nov 23, Thread Status: Not open for further replies. Jelly Bean Nov 23, Some touches weren't being registered, and sometimes when I'm scrolling, something along the way would be touched instead.
Double taps turned into single taps, the camera shutter button was hard to touch, and typing was unpredictable. The list goes on. I never documented it because it just happens without warning, so I complained about it on the forums instead. See the follow-up thread to get an idea of the problems I was having.
OnePlus has addressed this issue as a "software bug" just like the yellow tintand promised to fix it in future updates. It worked for some, and I did notice some improvement, but it just wasn't good enough for me. I thought all the software did was merely filter or mask the effects of the grounding issue, and anticipated or extrapolated touches made by the user.
At some point, I knew for sure it wasn't simply a "software bug", because I've tried numerous kernels and ROMs, to no avail. So, I went on a little investigation, because I'm actually quite familiar with problems like this.
The iPad Mini suffers from a very similar grounding issue when the digitzer gets replaced. The original digitizers are all insulated properly from the factory, but when it breaks and needs to be replaced, the replacement screens don't come with the insulating tape pre-installed.
If not insulated, the digitizer makes contact with the inside of the aluminum unibody, and thus creates the grounding issue. The tape insulating the touchscreen circuits has to be moved over from the original, broken screen to the new screen in order to prevent the issue.
See the original, broken iPad Mini digitizer left, bottom compared to a new, replacement digitizer left, top : Note how there are areas of the iPad's chassis that can make contact with the digitizer if not isolated. And I was right. I fully disassembled my OnePlus One for the second timebut this time around, I removed the screen as well.
I didn't do it the first time because it's a risky operation; I might damage the only screen I had during the process, and it won't be as secure of a bond as before. But YOLO, right?This is such an absolute. It's your fault as a consumer for downloading an app," excuse. This is the same kind of routine, "do a factory reset," instruction given when the first two troubleshooting methods in the Samsung help manual don't resolve an issue.
Fixed.. Ghost Touch ?? Automatic Touches Problem ?
There's no passing issues along to higher levels bc everyone at Samsung simply hopes every complex problem is an anomaly and don't mind infuriating a mere handful of these customers.
This is issue is NOT solved as I've taken the time to uninstall every single non-native app on this phone and this "ghost touch" is still a problem. Why is problem only with Samsung mobile?

I have Samsung galaxy a SamsungRei Samsung Moderator. Where was it purchased?The Motorola Droid release date was November Features and Specs include a 3.
Are you ready for the Galaxy S20? Here is everything we know so far! Hi, I have had the same problem with my Droid. I have removed the battery and set it back to "out of the box" functionality. It undertakes actions on its own. It opened up my address book and selected a person at random and called them. It did this over 10 times. Last night, it started to dial the telephone and while I was holding it in my hand, it dialed more that 30 numbers in a row.
I saw the keypad numbers light up as it was dialing the numbers. Does anyone know why it is starting tasks on its own? Thanks Steve. I had that happen when I used a charger that didn't supply enough power. It was going crazy. Does yours do it all the time? You should be covered by motorola warranty. If you got it less than a year ago which would be the case, since it came out in Novemberthen you are still covered under the 1-year manufacture warranty. Call Verizon from a landlinehit 0 a few times and they'll go through Tier 1 troubleshooting, then get you up to Tier 2 and order a free replacement.
Just make sure there isn't any obvious damage or water damage, they will charge you for the replacement if they find this out once they receive it. It's a very smooth process, IMO.

Sometimes locking and unlocking the phone also solves it for me. I also have a glass screen protector, but I experienced the problem also without protection, since I applied the screen protector a day later. Locking and unlocking the phone seems to "solve" it as well indeed.
