Hi everyone. I was wondering where I could find a touch screen kit for my laptop. I have an HP Pavilion g7 (17.3" 16:9 aspect ratio).

I need one that I can put between the LCD screen and the front bezel; not one that velcros to the lid.
It needs to be a resistive screen so I can use a stylus.
I'd extremely prefer one that solders or somehow connects inside the laptop, but if one can't be found, I'll settle for a USB one.
Single-touch is fine, but if you could find a multi-touch one on the cheap, that'd be great.

Thanks.

Considering that laptops are usually built with those dimensions in mind, you're going to have to either mod the entire laptop to essentially be a tablet, or get a removable touch screen interface if you want close it. I'm giving up on the latter since I don't see a market for it and Google doesn't come up with anything immediately.

Your best bet is something like http://www.instructables.com/id/Windows-8-Tablet/

When I get it, I just need to shave a little out from under the front bezel where the screen will fit, install it, and solder the connector to one of the USB ports/headers.
I found touch screens all over the internet, but I can't find one my exact size. I just need help finding an item.

Hi everyone. I was thinking where I might discover a touchscreen technology kit for my computer. I have an HP Pavilion g7 (17.3" 16:9 element ratio).

I need one that I can put between the LCD display and the top side bezel; not one that velcros to the lid.
It needs to be a resistive display so I can use a stylus pen.
I'd incredibly choose one that solders or somehow joins within laptops computer, but if one can't be discovered, I'll negotiate for a USB one.
Single-touch is excellent, but if you might discover a multi-touch one on the inexpensive, that would be excellent. :lol:
