Graphics Tablet doesn't work all the time with Vista 64bit
Posted on 2008-10-28
I can't get a graphics tablet to work in Vista 64-bit. It detects and installs it fine without installing drivers, but it only works until I click the tip of the pen. Then it wont work again unless I unplug and replug it in to the usb port. Also if I go to calibrate the screen like it's a tablet PC, then it works the whole time during the calibration, but then doesn't work again once the calibration is completed. Not sure if this is a 64 bit Vista issue or what?
Tablet works great on my other Vista 32 Desktop... not sure if this is configuration problem with my laptop or what exactly. Very strange. It's like Vista thinks this thing is a mouse, not a graphics tablet, but like I said, as soon as i used the tip of the pen to click, it stops responding to movement. The buttons on the pen (right click, double left click) still work though.
Just to add more information, I tried another known working graphics tablet on this laptop and it doesn't work either. I would think this might be a 32 driver issue, but it works great when i go to "Calibrate" the tablet screen (Though this laptop is not a tablet pc)
Anyone have any clue what I can do? I can't get any sort of pen to work with this laptop.
