Q: Stylus for Inspiron 2 in 1

I received a Dell Inspiron 2in1 laptop that can also be a tablet and I'm looking for the best option for a stylus. I have a regular one, but I am at college and would really like to be able to take notes on it so I am looking for a fine point pen stylus that works with the touchscreen on my laptop. Do you know which one would be the best option for me? Please let me know.

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.)

A: Stylus for Inspiron 2 in 1

We'd need the exact model number to tell you for certain, but most of these don't have a true digitizing screen - meaning the active type stylus you'd need to take notes won't work. If this is an Inspiron 7359, that will be the case.
There ARE systems out there that do have true active digitizers, but the price floor is about $1K -- this is the domain of the Lenovo Yoga Pro, Think Pad Yoga, and Surface Pro 4. Just about every system under $1K is a touchscreen tablet - not a true digitizing screen notebook.

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.

The Dell has a 10 pin input jack and the printerconnector has a 25 pin output cable.

Exactly the same problem here, watched the same review, read the same forum post and even confirmed compatibility in Dell Chat! Also spoke to Tech who says it is incompatible and advised to contact Customer Care, so I am also unresolved atm.
Really needed a decent pen for Photoshop use, so yeah, I'm a little disappointed too and would like a solution.

hiii i have a dell inspiron 5000 series.
i forgot my charger at work and i was wondering if i could use the charger of a dell inspiron 3521. the charger's model is : The charger's  HA65NS5-00
thank you

A:use charger of inspiron 3521 on a inspiron 5000 series?

What is the exact system model? 
Each model would have a specific capacity charger optimized for it. Not all chargers could fit into the another system. And even if does fit, although it might power on the machine, it might not charge the battery if the adapter wattage is different than what the system model is designed to handle. 
The Inspiron 3521 supports two different adapter wattage - 65W and 90W. If the other system in concern supports either of this wattage and has the same type of pin, then you most certainly can use it for the time required.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

Hi using an Epson printer NX 400 with my vista home premium pc and was wondering how to get the printer to use black only for text printing and then when my color inks are empty how do i use black ink only ?

And how do i use the quiet mode in the fastest speed or is that mode for next to fastest ? Amazing how noisy the fastest speed very shocking can anything be done to get it quiet ! ? - thanks . .

A:Epson Stylus NX 400

This is a lesson that the people who are making printers are in the money business and selling printers is just a means to that end. I, too, have an Epson, a Stylus Color 960. You cannot print black unless all colors are sufficiently full to print full color, whether you need color or not.

I contacted Epson years ago about this and that was their answer.

Quiet mode has always been slower on all the printers I've seen.

What is the complete product name or product number of your Elitepad? You can find that information at the bottom of any HP Support Assistance window or in the system information tab of the BIOS.

any ideas would be helpful

I'm not familiar with the Epson Stylus 760, but most printers have an option in the properties to print with black ink only or print monochrome or greyscale only. Have you checked to make sure this option is not active?

I'm having a hard time figuring out how I can install my new printer (Epson Stylus NX100) without using the installation CD. My CD-rom doesn't work right now. I have Windows Vista on emachines computer.

Thank you so much.

A:Epson Stylus NX100

I presume its USB? just plug it in and windows should recognize it as to whether it will find a driver for it you will have to wait and see,hopefully it might be ok.if it doesnt work go to the Epson website and download a driver for it ...

Just tried to install the drivers for the Epson Stylus C62 printer on a Win 98 machine and everything has gone crazy!!!

There is both a Centronics port and a USB prot on the printer. We followed the manufacturers installation instructions but no joy. Strange results indeed - when attempting to print the google home page, justthe top half of the google logo was printed, then on another sheet, the bottom 10% of the google page was printed.

We tried several installations but didn't manage to get anywhere. So, we then tried to revert back to the HP printer which worked fine before the Epson Stylus installation. Now we seem to be getting the same results with this printer as with the Epson!!

Has anyone experienced this type of error using this printer on '98 before ....

Thanks ....


A:Epson Stylus C62 - any problems ???


I don't know if this will apply to your situation.
I use epson printer and it worked fine. At some point, however, it started print my photos like your printer does. Into two pages.

I searched many sites and forum for the fix, but no luck.
Then Epson tech came up with this and fixed the problem.

What I did was, Opened up device manager and chose printer port, and then property. Update Driver from the driver tab, next, "display a list...", next, show all hardware, highlite (standard port type) on the left and "Printer Port" on the right.
Followed the instruction and the problem was gone.

I asked the Epson Tech why but he couldn't explain.

I hope this will work for you.

I am using windows 98 and connected to an Epson Stylus 460 Color printer.
I have always used it, but for reasons unknow, I had not used it for over a year.
I have installed the drivers both from the Original CD and also via th internet. But everytime I try to check the properties I get this message:RUNDLL32 caused a general protection fault
in module EPIJNL30.DRV
And when I try to open word and print a page I get this message:
WINWORD caused a general protection fault in module EPIJNL30.DRV
What is the problem? How can I fix it.
I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but in vain.
All my cables are fine (I guess) and the cartriages are new.

Hi. Hope you experts can puzzle out this one: my Epson Stylus 800 has been working happily for years, with 3 new computers. Now it doesn't know when it's out of black ink and neither nozzle check, head cleaning nor holding down black ink button 3 secs. and attempting to change will allow me to change the empty cartridge. Am I finally stuck with buying a new printer??? Thanks for any suggestions. Shoshana

A:Epson Stylus 800 gone nuts

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the printer software? Also, have you gone to EpsonAmerica home site and checked to see if new drivers are available for your 800? Sometimes it is just a funny quirk that upsets the smooth operation. Try these suggestions and post back if they do or don't work. Gary

I have an Epson Stylus 660 with a parallel connection. It has begun to print very slowly - several minutes for a few lines of text sometimes. I have tried changing the lead and have also tried my computer with another printer but there is no change. I have reinstalled the Epson software and have also reinstalled Windows 98 but no change. Any ideas?

A:Epson Stylus - slowed up

Have you gone to the EpsonAmerica home site and checked to see if there are any new drivers available for your Epson 660?
In a lot of cases, this will cure the problem. Do I understand that you have tried your computer with another printer and you found no differences? Also, have you cleaned and aligned the printheads as explained in your manual? Have you defraged your computer lately? Also do you close all other applications while printing? Gary

I am looking to get a decent stylus so I can take better notes using my Flex 4, but I have found that none of the active stylus on Amazon say that they work specifically for the Flex 4. I contacted support through web chat earlier and they informed me that if it says Lenovo Yoga 900, it should work. If it's marked for the Yoga 900s, would it still work? Does anyone happen to have a suggestion for a stylus that will be primarily used for taking notes and writing in general?

Hi, I have struggled with this topic since the day I received my laptop.  But last night, on TV I saw a commercial for HP's Spectre 360 and the whole commercial was about using an active stylus.   I grew increasingly furious.  I have been told (after buying the laptop from HP) that my model does not support using a stylus--although when I bought it I was told that it was compatible. Is there any chance that a fix will ever be provided?  I have the HP Spectre x360 - 13t-4200 CTO Thanks, Brett

i recently bought a printer (well six months ago!!)
i bought an Epson Stylus Color 680 but it has sat untill i could afford to replace the carts of ink , well last week i found a local comp fair and got a more than decent price for two sets.
Now that i have installed them and the colors are flowing nicely i have got some vertical lines appear on my photo prints (all prints actually!) and can find no way of getting rid of them i am on my knees begging for all of your greater knowledge , please indulge me thx loads

If it's anything like my Epson Stylus C60, it's a piece of crap!!! Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but if you paid under $100 for it, and it's an Epson, I'm gonna say that in my experience, there's no way to fix it (Believe me, I tried with mine ), and you're best bet is to just buy a new one. I just bought a Dell all in one flatbed scanner/inkjet printer/copier, I'll let you know how it goes.

I have purchased a Stylus color 860 that was a non printing unit for a good price. The previous owner stated that he had replaced the printhead per epson and then they told him that he needed to calibrate the printhead and he had no way so he sold it. It will feed and go through all the motions of printing but with no ink output on the paper. No errors noted. I have purchased the service repair manual but it mentions an Adjustment Program and I have found a web site that sells it but it looks like it went down before I could buy it. Anyone have any ideas.

I think you probably bought a boat anchor. Hopefully you didn't pay too much for it.

You might have a read thru the owner's manual.

My Epson Stylus Color 600 had a user friendly printer option menu with Win 98. Now, with XP and a new driver, I have this useless "dumb downed" printer menu from which I cannot get the printer to print one decent photo. And believe me, I've tried all their "simple" option settings. So,....AAAARRRGGGHHHHH!!!!! ....I'm a wee bit frustrated. Anyone out there know what I can do and how I can get a user friendly printer options window again??? [They "did" say that XP was a better OS, didn't they??]

Hi, I recently bought the Executive Tablet Pen for my HP Envyx360. I am now realizing it doesn't work. I have read on-line about my device having a Capacitive screen vs a Resistive stylus. Now, I am cool with having wasted my money on this pen. But is it possible to get a stylus as precise as these? I know of the styli with rubber ends but they don't seem as fine for precise writing or drawing. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi- I've checked the LPT1 port, & have run all the troubleshooting diagnostics. The printer will not print even though it has all new ink cartridges properly installed. All ideas are welcome, please! The printer was working fine, before replacing the ink cartridge. It refuses to print a test page.


A:Epson Stylus C82- printer help?!

I just recently found out from Epson that even if your only printing with black ink, the color cartridge is still being used to "build" each character that's printed. So if you just replaced the black ink cartridge, thinking the color cartridge is full.. replace that one also. The printer will not work if the color cartridge is empty... or the printer thinks it's empty. If you did replace both cartridges, then obviously one of them is bad... the printer still sees one of them, or both, as empty.

My friend has a Epsom Stylus 480 printer that she is running on Win 98 an it will pint one page and hen say thee is pape jammed in it. We ahve had a good look and there isn't any paper jammed in it. Sometime ago the son got some pape jammed in it but it cmae out complete and ever since then it's been coming up with this message after it prints one page. Have tried reinstallin it and have it on a different PC now to the one it was on but it still thinks there is paper jammed. Anyone got any suggetions.

Sounds like the gears may be out of alignment or there's some little thing jam in there somewhere. If you can't fix it yourself its not worth having someone try to fix it for a fee, new printers are just too cheap.
