    I have a tx2500 with Win7-7000 installed as primary OS. The Pen works on the screen, but the touch no longer works. Win7 installed a beta graphics driver for the 3200 chip in the tablet. Do I need to roll the graphics driver back? Is there a preferred method for doing this? Or is there a tweak or fix to get the touch screen working again?

    I find myself in the identical position.

    I have deleted the original drivers and reinstalled with fresh iterations from Wacom and then again from HP with no success.

    I'm not sure what increased functionality I'm looking for (am not expecting much since these are not equipped with dual touch), but would like to at least retain the capability I had under Vista.

    Touchscreen works ok on my tx2500z with win7, havn't done anything but run windows update so far.

    FYI : Clean install not update

    Strange. I did a clean install of Win7. The touchscreen, pen and bluetooth (I have a MS Notebook Mouse 5000) all work perfectly.

    I only had to install the Quick Launch button drivers and everything was dandy.

    I'd be curious to hear if power management in Win 7 helps to improve battery life in the tx2000 models. Would be nice if were able to magically cut down on the heat as well.

    I don't think that has changed too much. However, there's an option to set the cooling to "passive" which seems to either turn off the fan or set it to really low. Very nice for those of you who have noisy fans although I wonder if heat will become a problem.

    No - it gives priority to underclocking the CPU before turning up the fan

    Ah, I was curious what it did exactly. I only noticed that my fan was off more often.
