    I just used web chat support to see if i could get my Tx1127 sent in to get repaired. It took all of 30 seconds, He asked what the problem was and I told him in the first reply about the calibration issue and that I had updated the bios, updated drivers (not that there seems to be a driver) and reinstalled the OS about 5 times and his next reply was "So with these problems you want to send it in for repairs?" and I said "Yes" and that was that. Much better then when static electicity fried my emachine desktop mobo and the support guy argued with me saying it was a virus for 45 minutes.

    Today, the calibration on my screen went *completely* out, so I recalibrated on all 4 orientations, and, mysteriously, the problem has vanished for me.

    Kinda unsatisfactory answer for you guys though...

    I did the default calibration thingy (on my tx1000) and the pen is still like half an inch off from where i put it on the screen. I also press really hard on the screen to write and if i try to write with my actual writing speed it messes up and writes half the letters. Do I just have to get use to writing slow or is there something I can do to fix this.

    Problem has returned for me... there was another blog post (currently experiencing errors), that found another calibration tool... can't find right now.

    Well 11 days after we shipped it to HP- a warranty issue caused a delay, They fixed the calibration problem by replacing the whole display. As I said before we tried everything to get it to calibrate -recalibrating, bios updates, drivers, reinstalls, cussing- seems like it would have been easier to just send it in to begin with.

    Try running "tabcal LinCal" in run box (credit goes to Lore624 in previous posts). Do a search for tabcal in forums.

    hey guys, I just received my laptop today, and it had the same problem. the touchscreen was not so accurate, but it was only about 40mm. I did a trick when i run the calibration. what i did was I didn't tap in the middle of the cross, but a little far away the cross... I knew it was a little stupid.. but it works on my laptop....
    some of you guys said the error was half inch off...so i don't know if this trick works on your laptop or not.

    That's exactly what I did and it worked (tricking the calibration tool). It should work for everyone, it just takes a little playing around with (on one side you may need to be like a centimeter to the left of the dot, on the other you may need to be to the right 3/4 of an inch or vice versa. Discover your calibration trick zen)
