    More troubleshooting tips Jan 2010

    Hi! Everyone's been so helpful about simulation that I wanted to contribute some extra troubleshooting tips. Being new to simulation, I have become somewhat of a "frequent flyer" to Laerdal Tech Support! Sorry guys.... Anyway, I attached a document with the tips I've received so far.

    Ever seen the Y-axis become inverted:

    I regret I have more questions than solutions.  I have just replaced 2 old Dell D620's from Laerdal with new computers from HP.  I have tried the HP 6300MT desktop and the ProBook 4440S laptop.  2 of each.  Tried with Win 7 Enterprise 64 and Win 7 Professional 64.  The Elo touch screen works great UNTIL starting the SimBaby/SimMan software.  Then the Y-axis (vertical) is inverted 180 degrees to the touch.  Touch the upper portion of the screen, and the lower portion of the screen registers the input.  X-axis is unaffected.  I have tried the Elo 5.5.3 driver.  I have updated the drivers for USB controller from HP.  Of course I have tried Laerdal Tech Support.  My next attempt will be to try a Dell product, which seems to be what Laerdal recommends and does their testing with. Perhaps the HP BIOS is the issue.  BTW, I had the issues with the USB/Serial adapter and am now attempting to use a desktop tower.   I'll look into the PCMCIA solution also.  Thanks!
