While playing around with the BIOS settings, I ended up disabling the built-in LCD from working anymore.  Problem was, I couldn't see the BIOS screen to reset it!  I ended up taking the table apart in order to find the VGA out connector.  Plugging an external monitor to this allowed me to see what I was doing, at least part of the time.  There were other times when even the BIOS screen appeared garbled.  Here are the steps to reset the screens back to normal...
+
 
+
'''This is what we want to set in the BIOS to restore the LCD:'''
+
* Advanced Chipset Features
+
** AGP & P2P Bridge Control
+
*** Panel Type
+
**** set to "1280x1024 2x24B"
+
 
+
 
+
* Problem is, just setting the above won't immediately fix the LCD.  Try setting first to "1024x768 1x18B", save and reboot, then set to above resolution.
+
 
+
* Make sure "Display Device" is set to "CRT+LCD" prior to setting the above. (CRT is the VGA out, LCD is the built-in monitor)
+
 
+
 
+
'''Steps to restore monitors while working blind:'''
+
 
+
# On boot, press "del" key a few times right after colored lines on LCD flash to get into BIOS.
+
# To reset BIOS to minimal failsafe defaults, press:
+
#: Right, Down, Enter, "Y", Enter, F10, Enter.
+
#: (Computer should now reboot. Press Del to enter BIOS.)
+
# Now we must set "Display Device" to "CRT+LCD":
+
#: Down, Down, Enter, Down, Enter, 4*Up, Enter, 12*Up, 5*Down, Enter, F10, Enter.
+
#: (Computer should now reboot. Press Del to enter BIOS.)
+
# Now to fix the resolution:
+
#: Down, Down, Enter, Down, Enter, 3*Up, Enter, F10, Enter.
+
 
+
 
+
Hopefully, that should restore the built-in LCD.

I don't understand. I think there are linux drivers available for the touchscreen. they just weren't configuring correctly when I tried them.

check out zytronic, is it a zxy100 zytronic or a zxy zytronic? there are linux drivers (yes blobs) from the updd project or touch-base updd project.
