I need help! My tablet Pen/Stylus on my laptop does not work!?

Q: I need help! My tablet Pen/Stylus on my laptop does not work!?

So today (June 16, 2012) my stylus pen on my laptop has stopped working. I have a IBM ThinkPad Lenovo X41(T?) laptop with a stylus pen. Everything else is okay except for the stylus...

I try to wave it over and drag it on the screen (the screen rotates) and I have no idea how to fix it at all. Do I download something and it will work again? Help! (I do not wish to download things that require money OR disks, for my laptop does not have a CD cartage thing)

Also, if it was a key I pressed on accident (I think I did... oops?), what key on the keyboard will reset it back to normal? Thanks!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I need to know if there is a stylus I can use which looks and feels quite like a pen, I don't like the compressible rubbery feel of some stylus, they are not smooth enough.

A:Which stylus should I use with my Inspiron 15r touch laptop? Will a 'Wacom Bamboo Stylus Feel' work with it?

Hi Shaurya,Welcome to Dell community.
Yes you can use stylus pen with this system.
15z has 15.6" LED-Backlit LCD Capacitive Multi-touch screen, so you can use Targus Stylus with this system which Dell recommends. For further help you can click on the below mentioned link: 
The Wacom Bamboo Stylus Feel is the newest stylus from Wacom that a user in that forum said works well. The site,  , says it's compatible with the Latitude 10. Technically, any of the non-battery (somehow powered wirelessly by the tablet) powered Wacom stylus should work.
Please reply me if you need any further help.

I hope this is the right subforum . . .

Basically, I dropped my lovely, ill-fated stylus on my unforgiving stone-tile floor and now it doesn't seem to work. Is there any voodoo I can perform upon it so it may scroll and click and select once more? If not, how do I go about getting a new one?

Anyone have any experience with these Getac tablets? They use a weird proprietary stylus--it's big, round, squishy, and covered in some sort of fuzz. And they don't work very well. I'm looking for a replacement for them, but so far everything that I've tried doesn't work. I'm not familiar at all with Getac; these were purchased by my employer who wants us to set them up. Which is difficult to do if your stylus fuzz wears off...

My daughters laptop is a 2-1 so it can fold in half and be a tablet. I recently bought a monitor and mouse so she could use it more like a desktop but when I fold over the laptop into the tablet position, the keyboard stops working.

I had windows 8.1, but upgraded as it was supposed to have a tablet mode that you could toggle that would allow the keyboard to work. I upgraded and it worked for one night, but now the keyboard always stopped working when I put the laptop into the tablet position.
I hit the windows key +A and the tablet icon is greyed out, but no keyboard so I thought it was a laptop issue. I read that there was a toshiba exe file that controlled this functon, but deleting it didn't work either so I am back to thinking it might be something in 10?

Please help.

The 2-in-1s I've been privileged to look at appeared to have a mechanical switch to turn off the keyboard when it was folded into tablet mode, don't think there's anyway to bypass that without physically disabling it by taking the device apart, could end up destroying it.

Hi, i was was looking at the new Spectre X2 2:1 in Best Buy today, and they were promoting a package with Verizon connectivity in the store.  Is this 2:1 WWANs capability tied just to Verizon cellular data, or could I specifically use it with Sprint or ATT.  Otherwise, is it "locked" to Verizon, and will its frequencies & bands support the other carriers? if it can support other carriers, what is the procedure of setting connectivity up? Thank you in advance for your reply...

Hi all,
I'm on the hunt for a cheap as poss Windows 10 tablet that supports an active stylus for a friend who wants to run the StaffPad app.
Size and specs are pretty unimportant, other than the ability to run that specific app, so the active stylus is the only real requirement.
Does anyone have any recommendations?
Cheers in advance!

I have a Motion Computing LS800,OS Windows XP. You write on the screen with a Waco pen(stylus) . It just started to have problems. Works only for a little while right after booting up and then stops working. Also at the same time it has a hard time finding files that it found instantly before, you know the flash light comes on the screen and shines back and forth. Could it be the hard drive is starting to break down? Tried updating drivers and tried system restore, nothing helps, I'm not a tech guy so I don't know

I tried to go to the, "Calibrate the screen for pen or touch input," but when I tried it, the screen did not even register that I was doing anything. What do I do? What do I install? How do I get the stylus to work?

I have a HP Spectre x360 15t and my Active Stylus will not work. I have read a few articles stating that this is an issue with Windows 10. I spent some time updating the BIOS and the pen still does not work. Is there any driver or update coming out soon for this pen to function like it did with 8.1 on 10??

You should check for driver update or missing driver through hp support assistant or through hp support website( link below). If the same does not work then contact microsoft windows help desk.The links are for downloading hp support assistant for downloading the driver online from hp websiteU could also try update windows 10.

I have been very happy with my Yoga 900 i7 with 64 bit system and 16GB of RAM. Until I discovered I cannot get anything work as a stylus when trying to do drawing and sketiching, and simple pen tracing in PhotoShop. I saw a Youtube video on the Wacom Pen (they did not say what model) that demonstrated it being used on a "ThinkPad Yoga." But will it work on the 900? Will ANY stylus workw the 900? Thanks! I saw one on Amazon with the Lenovo brand, saying "Not compaitible with the Yoga 900."   

A:Does ANY stylus work with the Yoga 900 for PhotoSh...

Good day.
The Yoga 900 works with capacitive pens only. Those are the type that mimic a fingertip. These might be ok for some Photoshop features, but not likely for fine-point control. In addition, there won't be pressure-level sensitivity, at least of the type that one gets with a Wacom-style digitizer / active pen.
Hope this helps to clarify.

The Stylus Pro 7600 is now a really old printer, the last supported driver was for XP but it worked in Windows 7 and I believe to some extent in 8 although I never did try it.

It s a really good reliable large format printer though and very affordable in parts, ink and the second-hand purchase price.

However alas Windows 10 doesn't like it, I did the upgrade to 10 (and then the downgrade) from windows 7 but it will not see the driver it sees the device but calls it a USB high speed device or something like that and compatibility mode didn't seem to help.

So unless there is a clever work around and I'd love that to happen I'm stuck on Windows 7 for the duration.

Suggestions welcome.

A:Epson Stylus pro 7600 - Driver doesn't work

No cleverness here, and I don't have such a printer, but...

Have you tried the drivers for Vista?

Epson Stylus Pro 7600 - Photographic Dye Ink, Drivers & Downloads - Technical Support - Epson America, Inc.

These are for the dye-based version. I didn't look to see whether the Ultrachrome based one uses different drivers.

(There are also 32 bit Windows.) If they don't want to install, you could try right clicking on the installer and running the Troubleshoot Compatibility tool.

Good luck.

My mother recently acquired a tablet so that she can write Chinese on the computer. (She doesn't like using pinyin or any alternatives that I've tried to make her use)

We currently own a Windows Vista Home Premium (32-bit) desktop which was purchased in New Zealand.

She purchased the tablet in China, and it worked on various computers in China.

However, after installing the software successfully on the New Zealand computer, the software is unable to recognise characters that my mother inputs into the computer.

How do I tackle this problem? Thank you.

Note: The tablet is by the company 'Uniscom', if that makes any difference.

I have an older desktop PC with a Windows Vista OS. I'm thinking of purchasing a Tablet but I'm not sure it will work because I use a modem. I was told that Tablets come with a wireless internet card but will the tablet work if I'm not using a wireless connection? What will I need to do or what will I need to purchase to make it work? Sorry, but I'm not up-to-date on the latest technology.

A:Will Tablet work with a modem?

Depends on the definition of "works", But i am assuming you mean connecting to the internet. The answer is no.

All internet connctions at home use a modem, What kind of internet do you have? Cable company, Phone cable always on, or actual dial-up like old school style?

If its high speed, its quite possible your provider has a modem/wireless router you can trade your old one in for free.

If itsa skretchy modem type, I'm not sure what you can do, other than use free hot spots.

I use a Fujitsu tablet and chat on MSN often. Recently, I just discovered that my pen is unable to work in MSN for some reason or other. When I click on the pen tab in the chat window, it shows the drawing/writing space. However when I try to write/draw in it, my cursor disappears when I hover my pen over the space. I can't write in it either.

I have tried reinstalling MSN but to no avail. I'm quite sure it is a software problem because my pen works perfectly normal elsewhere.
Would anybody know the cause of this problem and help me out?

I just got a brand new Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 14 and the touchscreen was working great, but once I installed my Wacom Cintiq 12wx onto the laptop, the touchscreen completely stopped working. It seems like the laptop is confused on whether to use the wacom or the laptop as a tablet and I really want them to both work simultaneously. Has anyone else been able to get their laptop to work with a tablet? Any help would be greatly appreciated since this is the second thinkpad yoga 14 ive gotten since the first one did the same thing and I first assumed it was a computer issue.

Hi banana74
Welcome to the forums.
Can you please post the full model number of your TP Yoga 14? are you using Windows 10 (64bits)?
I have tried my TP Y 14 with a Wacom Bamboo and I have no problem using both, the touchscreen with the Thinkpad Pen Pro and the Wacom Bamboo with his own pen.
Maybe what we can do first is try to update the Wacom drivers of your Thinkpad Yoga from the Lenovo support site of you model.

I'm having difficulties installing the tablet buttons in WINDOWS 8.1 Pro. Everything else works, perfectly.

In Windows 8 Pro this buttons worked nicely, but now, after a clean install of Windows 8.1 Pro two of the buttons don't work. The buttons are the Toshiba assist button and the presebtation button. I've tried to configure them in Toshiba assist software but nothing happens.

I'm sure I've installed all drivers that made wverything work with Windows 8. As anyone tryed this and add success?

A:Portege M750 and Win8.1 Pro -tablet buttons don't work

> I'm sure I've installed all drivers that made wverything work with Windows 8

Windows 8.1 is not Windows 8 and many of Toshiba Win 8 drivers and tools don?t work or are not fully compatible with Win 8.1

As far as I know the Toshiba does not support Win 8.1 on this Portege M750.
This means that no Win 8.1 drivers will be released and in such case some notebook features like the control buttons could not work properly.

Fact is that using Windows Vista or Win 7, such buttons were controlled by Value Added Package. This package does not exist for Win 8.1 and has been replaced by other software called Toshiba System Driver

So in case you want to try to get the buttons to work, I recommend checking this with Toshiba System Driver

Got a new tablet pc. Put in a new hard drive and installed vista ultimate x64. Works great. I was suprised how much smoother it runs.

The 11a/b/g/n wireless LAN Mini-PCI Express Adapter isn't recognized by vista. My friend said it might be a problem because it doesn't work with 64 bit software. Went through the long process of installing vista 32 bit version. Same thing. It was recognized by vista.

So now here I am with 64 bit vista installed again. I downloaded a couple drivers that it could be from lenovo website. It still didn't work.

Before I started this whole project I went to the microsoft upgrade site to check compatability. While running XP, the site said that I would have to download the wireless lan driver and install it after i installed vista. It also said the fingerprint reader would need to be manually installed but I don't care about that.

Any suggestions?

I am going to either buy a laptop or a tablet in the next month or so. I have no idea how to operate a Tablet, but I like the idea of a it being very portable and having a longer battery time (so I have heard) than a laptop. I was hoping you could give me some help. I am only going to use it for surfing sites and email. Is the keyboard that comes on the screen fairly easy to type on? Since the screen is only 10 inches, is it a problem to read a website? Just how much different will it be from a laptop? Any other info you can give me will be appreciated. Thanks,

Hi all, I recently purchased a tablet (Amazon Fire) and I cannot transfer files from my laptop onto it. At first I thought it was a faulty tablet, but then Amazon sent me a replacment with the same problem. I plugged it into a different laptop (also running Windows 10) and it recognised it no problems. Plugging it into my laptop it does not come up in the list of drives under the PC directory, but going into settings> list of drivers, it sees the "Fire" driver and says it's "unavailable". My laptop never recognised my ipod in the same way but it still functioned with Itunes so it never bothered me, but like the tablet it is also under the list of drivers as "unavailable".  The laptop itself is only a year old. HP Pavilion 15-ab270sa 15.6" LWindows 10 Any help would be great. Thanks

Welcome to the HP Community @mfjoe. I hope you find what you're seeking here.  I see that your PC-to-iPod and PC-to-Amazon Fire connections aren't being recognized by your HP Pavilion Notebook - 15-ab270sa. I would like to assist you with this.  Are you finding your PC's USB ports are working with other devices? If you haven't already done so, make sure you have the latest drivers installed by running the HP Support Assistant.   The Microsoft forum offers a few tips here that might help with iPod and the tablet as well as the hookup technology is shared. Amazon's user forum offers further advice here. (Note that you'll need to scroll down to the second last entry for the action-oriented steps.)  Let me know if that works out better. If I have helped you resolve the issue, feel free to say "You rock!" by clicking the 'Thumbs Up' icon below and clicking to accept this solution. Thank you for posting in the HP Support Forum. Have a great day!

Following the rabbit hole deeper, I've sat and thought about what is essential to my needs from a new Win8 device purchase:
- x86 compatibility is needed, along with a USB Port and HDMI/Mini Display Port for showing the tablet on a HDTV.

- touchscreen is needed, but pen support isn't necessarily needed.

- includes a keyboard which separates from tablet for when I need that, but which isn't completely separate all the time so that it's one more thing to have to carry in your bag, or in my case I would likely misplace it a lot and not have it to hand when I do need it.

- something respectable in processor/graphics/memory so that it can play at least some games on low/normal settings, and to watch YT/stream Netflix & Twitch without buffering and stuttering. Don't see a point in getting a new device just to have to get a more powerful one later on, thus making the first purchase obsolete and a waste of money when the replacement becomes my new 'main'.

- Be priced somewhere around, but preferably below ?400-?500

Run the Win7 Upgrade advisor which will tip you to drivers that may be needed or apps which might be incompatible:

Go to the maker's Support Downloads webpage for your tablet model. Either download the latest drivers to stick or CD, or bookmark the page.

The Win7 installer is driver-complete with newer arriving quickly via optional Windows Updates so check there first. Turn this on as well: Automatically get recommended drivers and updates for your hardware

Then if there are any missing drivers in Device Manager, import them from the Support Downloads webpage you backed up.

Hi,there is a lot matrices are installed into x201t. Models also depend of the backlight type - LED or CCFL. I'm not sure whether any supported matrices models are compatible with your laptop. Also there are different LCD cable assembly and LCD rear cover assembly depending of the backlight type.To ensure what matrice you have and what's compatible check out on Lenovo' site parts list of your laptop by its [laptop] serial number. Support site doesn't answer a question by MTM only.I think it's impossible to fit non touch matrice into the tablet because of the different size (width). Compare the width of x201 and x201t.

Laptop from Hell asked him to tell me if the Laptop can get to the desktop and he says YES I figure that whatever is happening to it can not be the mobo He says that he'll be in Miami in a few days so I told him to bring it I'll take a look at it even though laptops and I get along worse than PCs and I IMG http www forbrains org forum images smilies icon biggrin gif IMG if that doesn't work I'll take it to a Toshiba retailer here so they can dig in deeper Well the laptop is here what it does is completely wierd for sure if you are on the desktop and you click on of the icons there all of the icons to the left side of it and above the icon you just clicked on get HIGHLIGHTED WTF If you get to Explore same thing happens to files inside a folder which makes it extremely hard to open documents or applications Here's where the odd and doozy thing takes place after a few restarts and or log offs the laptop works just as well as any other laptop I have my suspicions that this has a lot to do with the stickykeys or hotkeys because at times a popup shows up regarding the stickykeys with options OK to enable Cancel to Disable and Settings to get into the options but no matter what you click on the thing can or can not work intermitent The thing is that I don't know which application or program does this and even though I have managed to uninstall the majority of the Toshiba bundle apps the problem persists Before I take it to the shop I was wondering if any of you gurus has ever heard of the issues and or what you suggest I try I honestly don't want to waist to much time with it since I despise laptops but the masochist in me does not allow me to just walk away from a challenge w o at least trying something first

Can you at least show me where can I get the software CD from? I have been on their site and I can get to each individual driver but not the whole CD software.

I aquired an HP TX1305US convertable touch tablet. it seems to have some issues with the touch screen. first of all, half the time, the touch doesn't work. anytime i flip the screen around into tablet mode, the pointer goes haywire and when i go back to laptop mode, the pointer is stuck in the corner, and it can't be moved. also, the application toolbar comes up and the only way to fix it is to reboot. i uninstalled the tablet functionality through windows and reinstalled and the problem is still there. additionally, when the touch screen was working, i had to use alot of pressure. i was kind of expecting it to work like an ipod touch or pda. i'm not sure if this could be hardware or software. the laptop has vista ultimate. i checked ho for all the updates and everything should be current. any ideas of what could be the problem?

My niece is going to be going away to college this coming fall and she ll need a laptop and tablet or maybe a laptop tablet hybrid that is sturdy and can be used out in the field Let s face it she can be clumsy and careless at times to paraphrase combo Laptop/Tablet *Sturdy* recommendation my brother it needs to be able to survive being *Sturdy* Laptop/Tablet combo recommendation run over *Sturdy* Laptop/Tablet combo recommendation by a tank Well maybe not a tank but at least a car And preferably it should be something that will last for years though imho when talking teenagers that would be the day My brother didn t ask specifically for a hybrid but I figure that a hybrid would be cheaper and easier to deal with Also price is not that important brother s in-laws will pay for it is my guess and they have money As I said sturdy is the first priority because she s likely to take either the tablet or the laptop anywhere nbsp

I have a Tablet drawing monitor, and today the pen stopped working, I fiddled with it for a while, I tried uninstalling the drivers for the Hardware and reinstalling, but then I noticed that the Tablet Settings and Calibration Options you normally see in Control Panel are mysteriously gone. After maybe 2 hrs of googling I've given up,. there's very little on google, and now im considering doing a "Rest This PC." Any help would be appreciated.

Ever since the new windows 10 anniversary update, my laptop no longer enters or asks to enter tablet mode when i bend the screen back. This is quite frustrating as normally it would change and the keyboard would b deactivated, but now when i flip it back the keyboard remains active and i end up pressing random keys. I have tried different settings for whether or not to be asked to enter tablet mode in windows settings but it doesnt change anything.

Hi there I m not sure if this is a hardware problem or not A friend of mine just got a new drawing tablet to replace her old one and she s having a problem now where if she opens a program to work with the tablet for example Photoshop the laptop will register randomly usb drawing doesn't recognize tablet Laptop's the tablet as a mouse Also Photoshop will sometimes crash on initializing She has tried other art programs and the tablet is still acting as a mouse in those so the Photoshop crash issue might not be related Sometimes the laptop will recognize the tablet properly sometimes it won t She tried reinstalling the tablet s drivers and it Laptop's usb randomly doesn't recognize drawing tablet worked for a day or two and then started acting funny again Even after a reboot or two Here s all the information I have She s using the tablet in the same usb port as the old one she believes The new tablet is a Intuos graphics tablet The old tablet I believe was also a Wacom much like the new one she still has the old one btw She s using a bamboo create pen on the new tablet She hasn t tried cleaning her registry yet She hasn t tried using the tablet in a different usb port Her laptop is an Acer Aspire AS Z- All USB ports are reporting to be up to date and functioning fine We re thinking it s either the new tablet itself or the usb port it s in I m thinking it s not a physical connection issue because the laptop doesn t display a new connection message when the tablet starts working again properly as if it wasn t connected and now it suddenly is But I could be wrong Also the fact that the laptop is recognizing something being in there but thinking it s a mouse rather then a tablet again makes me think it s not a hardware problem at least inside the laptop If you need any more info just let me know Any advice would be awesome thanks nbsp

Have just purchased a generic 7" Touch Screen Android Tablet runnning Android V. 2.2.

Tablet was supplied with USB cable (USB 2 to Micro USB)

Despite having WI-Fi, there are problems connecting to this as the WI-FI router does not automatically connect to the internet as there are 2 ISPs used.

Thought of connecting my laptop running Windows XP to the internet and then sharing this connection with the Tablet via the supplied cable.

Is this possible ? I would like to start using the tablet but all the installed software needs to be authenticated or signed in so currently it is not being used.

I have seen various threads etc. on WI-FI but this seems complicated and can be another topic.

I was playing on my Asus tablet and ran into Splashtop 2 that allowed me to remotely control my Win 7 laptop from my Android tablet via Wi-Fi with a router. I had a touch pen but it wasn't a fine enough point implement, like what used to exist around 15 years ago. Working on my desktop was dodgy because of the high risk of errors, like inadvertently moving folders around and losing them in others because things "slid" on the screen.

I am thinking about getting a second hard drive in my laptop and installing Windows 8 Pro on it so I can use my Android tablet to run the Metro-UI on my laptop via Splashtop 2.

Hi there
On an HTC phone there is an option to use this as an Internet pass through (or I suppose a "Virtual Router").

I'm late to the world of smartphones etc so this might seem like a stupid question - but I would like to connect a PC and / or a tablet at times via the phone's Internet Connection (since it's paid for !!).

Any Ideas anyone -- phone is an HTC using the Android OS.


A:Htc phone as Internet pass through to connect W8 laptop / Tablet

You will need to install the native Windows driver for your phone, I'm guessing. Depending on what model you have will affect what drivers you will need to download. They can usually be found on the manufacturer's website.

Then you need to enable USB tethering from the phone (found under WiFi settings). Check these articles:

Get USB Tethering on HTC HD7

Then you need to set it up as whatever kind of network you prefer. It will usually show up as a LAN adapter.

Use this guide if you're interested in using WiFi and a tether at the same time:

I figured out that I did not have all of the Windows Management Instruemtation services installed. I reinstalled them and got my ethernet drivers up and running. I am now able to install some of the unknown devices. Will keep you posted.

My next issue to tackle is: How do I get the Tablet components off of the Tablet CD? Upon reinstallation, it never asked me for disc 2, which has all of the tablet pc tools on it.

Hello,  I'm having some trouble with turning on my laptop. The problem originally started when some keys on my keyboard stopped working. I cleaned the keys, restarted my laptop, tried a previous restore point and then did a hard reset after nothing worked to fix my laptop.  After hard resetting, I tried turning on my laptop and it did not turn on. So far, I've plugged in my laptop into the adaptor, plugged the adaptor directly into the wall outlet, and removed the battery and plugged in the laptop. The one thing I have noticed with my laptop is that when I plug in the adaptor, the battery and sleep lights turn on for a moment, then the sleep light turns off, and the battery light will stay on momentarily but then it will blink off after a few seconds. What else should I do? Thank you

Does anyone know if there is a program available (free if possible) similar to Quicken (Deluxe) that I could use on my Android Tablet(HP 10 Tablet G2 -2301)? That would keep track of bank accounts and interest earned, and keep track of one stock IRA and interest earned and yearly RMD? And produce reports for that interest earned, etc.? Mainly for using when preparing yearly tax forms.
