So I recently fell my laptop; actually it’s a 2-in-1 convertible device. You attached a keyboard and you get a laptop, detach it you get yourself a tablet. Recently this device took a dive onto the concrete and its screen became shattered; though not too much that you can use it, but enough to make the pointer act like you are tapping one area of the screen and holding it throughout.
Well the point where the pointer gets stuck is where the cracks seems to be emanating from as it spreads throughout the screen. Though you can still use the computer with the crack, it tends to get annoying that you can move the pointer from where it is stuck. You keep moving the mouse up and down, right and left the pointer will not move.
After a while I figured out, the crack makes the computer think I have tapped and hold at that one point at all times. Thus the pointer will not move anywhere else. So it became apparent I need to loose the touchscreen functionality for me to continue using my laptop.
