    Hi there

    I am about to buy a refurbished Fujitsu T4410. I am on a very low budget and I find that fujitsu laptops have a very high reliability.

    I have read its specs and done some research on the web. I found that it has multi-touch capability on windows 7. I want to use it with windows 8. I checked the fujitsu website and found they only have dual digitizer drivers for windows 7 - for every model of that age, T4310, T4410 and T5510. I thought the newer windows 8 drivers of T901 would do the trick but I quickly realized fujitsu had listed two drivers for the wacom screens in a T901 - the usual driver plus a firmware. This clearly means the wacom screens later used in the newer T series are different from the ones used in T4410, T4310. It's like the N-Trig screens in the Dell XT/2 and Hp tx2. They first require the firmware flashed in windows 7 and then an upgrade to windows 8, instead of a clean install, in order to enable multi-touch in windows 8.

    I was hoping if anyone having a T4410 running windows 8 could help me verify if the multi-touch works and how they got it to work - the drivers they used. If anyone could upload a picture or a reference video showing this that would really help. (I also noticed it was pretty easy to check if you had multi-touch by going to Free Omnitapps Multitouch Test Application on the internet and clicking test).

    Hi George,

    Please don't cross post, you've posted this in 3 forums now, I understand that you are urgently looking for a solution and it was suggested you post in the Hardware Forum but please don't cross post as it will be difficult to follow the threads.

    Thanks,
