Hello everyone,I bought an ancient IBM 4820-2WB Surepoint POS IR touch screen display,and I can't for the life of me figure out why windows 10 isn't recognizing it as a touch screen,it works as a display but that's it.

I read somewhere where it needed USB power also so I tried using both ports on the monitor and hooking them to the computer. I am using a 19.5v 2.3 amp power supply so I think I have that covered as its working nicely as a display,but I bought this wanting to use it as a LinuxCNC display for my milling machine so I need teh touch screen features working.

Any help would be greatly appreciated ;)

I've nothing more to say that would help you.
I appreciate the input and the help, I am going to continue updating the thread with my progress, so other people trying to get these old infrared IBM POS touch screens will know to do in order to get them working on Windows and Linux. There is almost no information on getting them to work with PC's.
