    Welcome to the forum

    I'm guessing you may have a loose cable or a bad digitizer. If you reset back to factory defaults hardware is about the only thing left, assuming it was working with Vegacomd before.

    Thanks for your reply
    IIt was working before with Vegacomb and I have now reset it with the Viewsonic software but still the same
    Do you mean the cable that comes from the screen to the motherboard as did take that off and cleaned it with contact cleaner
    Any idea where I can get a new digitiser from please

    Yes, that would be the cable, but there may be some other hardware problem. You may want to try seating that cable again.

    I took it out a few times but It does not seem to go all the way in you have to slide it in and push the clip closed but still seems that the cable is not right in
    Is it possible that the components on the cable are faulty and need replacing

    On closer inspection I have found 2 hairline scratches that may be cracks would that cause the problem
