My touchscreen is tapping the corner of the screen

Every time I turn on my dell inspiron duo, the touch screen starts acting up. it is constantly "pressing" the corner of the screen on its own. because of this I cannot complete any tasks on it because it closes everything out and the cursor always goes to that corner as if I were constantly touching the corner. Nothing is on the screen making it do this. It has done this since a few weeks after I got it. It was given as a gift so I don't have the receipt or anything to go with it to send it off to dell to get it fixed. Please help.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

From past experience with touchscreen interactive whiteboards, there is problem a sensor that is sticking in that corner. The manufacturer's tech support directed us to take the flat of our hand and run it over the screen to try to un-stick the possibly stuff sensor. This usually did the trick and is common especially if that spot is used often or was pressed in harder than normal for some reason.

I suggest running your hand over the entire screen and not just that corner. I hope this helps.
