    I'm guessing these pens just go bad...But I have one that won't click anymore. I reinstalled the drivers for it several times. How do I fix this?

Unable to move cursor on lenovo x61


Are you trying to move the cursor with the trackpoint, a usb mouse, or the pen? Have you tried restarting your computer? Restarting would likely solve the problem. If you can't move the cursor to the start menu, you can open the start menu with the windows key, use the arrow keys to navigate to the power options. Use enter to select the power options and shut down or restart the computer. If this does not work, press and hold the power button for 5 or 10 seconds to force the computer to shut down.

What happened before this occurred? Did you install any programs or updates recently, or change any settings on your computer?

Cursor jumps to corner of screen, is erratic


have you tried a usb mouse ?? as if that works it will be the touch pad is playing up. you can disable it and use a wireless mouse or usb one. as it would be cheaper then replacing the touch pad.

Fujitsu Stylistic 3500 Pen calibration in XP Tablet Edition


Well there is a few ways to try to fix it first with a usb mouse check that the resolution is at it's native pixel count. This can be found on the manufacture website. If it is already at that resolution ensure that the CIC XPen drivers are installed. Those should have placed a recalibration program in the control panel. If those both fail, try uninstalling the drivers and restarting, then reloading the drivers. Hope this helps! food luck and godspeed!

How to use the pen


Using the pen is quite simple.
You extract it from its storage space and use it as a mouse, left clicking it as you would a mouse.
By pressing the tip of the pen on an area on desktop or on an application window and maintaining the pressure for a short while, you activate the context menus (the equivalent of a right click.)

On the Windows task bar (for Windows XP) there is a small icon near the start button that shows a pen pointing outside: that is the input panel. Click the icon with a mouse or your pen, and an input area opens. In that area you write with the pen (writing Pad) or enter letters and symbols one at a time (Character Pad) or use a virtual keyboard.

Under the red X that closes the input panel there is a small gear. C;ick the gear with the pen or a mouse to configure the settings.

Your pen may have an eraser at the rear end and/OR on the side. It is used to erase characters or whole sentences.

To actually record (write) what you enter with the pen you must have a text-editing application open and running.
Whenever you approach the pen to the screen near a text-area (search area of IE or other compatible applications) a small icon appears to be clicked to enter text. This happens is you select UNDOCK in the input panel configuration.

This should get you started with the pen. Try these steps, and if you have any other questions post them as comments to this thread and it will be my pleasure to answer them.

Screen rotates, pen doesn't


Is it maybe possible it is a hardware prob? maybe the directional sensor in the tablet was displadced.

 

BTW i have the same tablet and need an harddrive replacement/upgrade, how did you manage to do that? what kind of drive and where to buy? Viewsonic seems not so eager to help me out with that.

 

Best,

Acer Tablet C300 Series - Cursor moving to Left


I?ve had a couple of Dells laptops do this and without fail the cause was flaky touchpad/mouse drivers. I would suggest going to the Acer website downloading the latest drivers for your mouse. If that fails try removing the driver and running with the Windows default drivers, that what I?ve been doing successfully on my company laptops for several years now. Acer driver download page, the web site is really slow so be prepared for a long wait. The closest match was the C300 so I?m assuming these are generic drivers for the 300 series. Use the pull down menus and select the following: -Select Product Line = Notebook -To the right of that select TravelMate C300 (way at the bottom) -Make sure English is selected and click on the search button. Once the drivers page opens go down towards the bottom and load for TM C300 touchpad drivers Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this posting.
