Which thing are you seeing exactly? Is it working properly with the official RPi display?

Post SunFounder 10.1" capacitive touch screen success 
I am building a display with a SunFounder 10.1" capacitive touch screen. On the initial install, the touch screen was not responsive.

I found Joe D's comments about the settings for this screen and made his changes for config.ini and am happy to report that the touch screen is now responding. Thanks to Joe D. for his info on this screen and you guys for this really nice option.

Now to get rid of the touch circle, and make sure the screen saver never kicks on and then to build a case.

Post RPI UPS FOLLOW-UP 
Just thought id follow up on my Rpi under voltage issues while cranking the starter. I purchased the UPS PICO 450 stack plus hat, which allows a 12v power feed and automatic switching to back up battery. I ordered it from MODMYPI overseas, and didn't know if you contact them in advance they can swap the stock 450mah battery for one of the larger ones (customs issue). so I got a 3cell series 18650 batt holder and three 3300mah e-cig batteries to work as the battery backup supply (ttl 9900mah). the PICO requires a little soldering, but not to terrible. after install it works very well. what's really nice is you can simply turn the batt master off and after 60seconds the PICO initiates a safe PI shutdown. then shuts itself off. when the car is running on 12v it will also charge the back up batteries. what I don't like is you cant see the status led's to tell if everything is functioning.

I also since found you can get the PICO in the US at http://www.sfo-takumi.com/shop/
