My System Specs

Default Acer Iconia A100 Ghost Touches

Hi all,

As the subject, I have an Acer Iconia A100 Android 4.0 tablet (stock ICS upgraded from 3.2) has random touch events firing like crazy at a certain portion of the screen. They seem to be at the right-hand side of the screen, a little above the middle vertically.
These issues persist through a factory reset, which I had to do by the "hard" method with the power button, volume buttons, and screen lock switch because I couldn't get past the password prompts due to the touch events. The random touch events are actually making the country select go nuts right after the first boot.

The tablet is out of warranty

Is there something else I can try on this thing to fix it, or do I throw it in the dead electronics pile? (My assumption is a screen repair would cost more than this thing is worth, given it was a low-end tablet on its way out when I got it last year.)
