3 Fixes for HID Compliant Touch Screen Missing

All the fixes below work in Windows 10, 8.1 and 7. You might not have to try them all; just work your way down the list until the problem goes away.
  1. Show hidden devices
  2. Update your HID-complaint touch screen driver
  3. Run Hardware and devices Troubleshooter

Fix 1: Show hidden devices

There’s a good chance that you’ve accidentally hidden your HIP Compliant touch screen, hence the HIP Compliant touch screen not showing problem. If that’s the case, you should un-hide it. Here’s how:

1) On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and R at the same time, then type devmgmt.msc into the box and press Enter

2) Click View and then click Show hidden devices.

3) Click Action > Scan for hardware changes.

4) Check if your HIP Compliant touch screen shows up under Human Interface Devices now. If yes, then great! But if it’s no joy, you should move on to Fix 2, below.

Fix 2: Update your HID-complaint touch screen driver

This problem may occur if you are using the wrong HID-compliant driver or it’s out of date. So you should update your HID-compliant driver driver to see if it fixes your problem.

If you don’t have the time, patience or skills to update the driver manually, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.

Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing. Driver Easy takes care of it all.

You can update your drivers automatically with either the Free or the Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes just 2 clicks (and you get full support and a 30-day money back guarantee):

1) Download and install Driver Easy.

2) Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.  

3) Click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of ALL the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All).

You can also click Update to do it for free if you like, but it’s partly manual.

4) Restart your computer and check if you got it back on your Device Manager. If yes, then congrats! But if the issue persists, please move on to Fix 3, below.
