    Hello all ... i checked these forums and online searches but cant seem to find an answer. Just got the Dell P2314T touchscreen monitor and have it as my main monitor on a dual monitor setup with Macbook Pro 15". Easy to get monitor recognized, went to Dell site for drivers and monitor utility. Checked that the 'Tablet Input Service' was running. Also under the control panel under 'Tablet PC settings', it shows my new touch monitor and says 'touch input available'. But when I go to calibrate it or try any kind of touch it doesnt seem to recognize touches. I am booting straight into Windows 7 using Bootcamp. Monitor connected with HDMI to MacBook HDMI port and USB cable (from monitor) connected directly to Macbook Pro. It seems all drivers and settings are there but it just doesnt work.
    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Just a question...

    I would like to buy the same monitor and use it with a mac mini, and i would like to ask you if you use the touch-base drivers (http://www.touch-base.com) or just original drivers?? I can't find them in Dell web site...thank you

    I have the same monitor but don't know how to enable the touch feature on my macbookpro. Do I need drivers. I have it connected by an hdmi cable. What else do I need?
