It was under warranty. Sooo... free! However the problem just came back 2 days ago. I think I'm going to send it off to get repaired again and then sell it and get a different laptop. I barely use the computer. This is unacceptable for it to continue to fail.
You can disable the touchscreen in the device manager and use it like a normal laptop but that it the only thing that works. I think it's a physical pinch in the touchscreen from the frame causing it to think the screen is being touched.
No Problem. Just to be clear my laptop is still working after the most recent repair. I don't know if they made the screen better (with a modification to the design) but I have had no additional problems with it. I just came back from holiday vacation and traveled with it with no issues. It was about a two week repair.
