Question about IBM ThinkPad X41 Tablet PC

1 Answer

Tablet PC 2005 Input Panel won't work.

I have a Lenovo Ibm X41 tablet pc with a stock digitizer pen, running tablet pc edition 2005. The pen seems to function correctly with the exception of the the pen input panel. The input panel will not respond to the pen. Otherwise everything works. Any ideas?

    Somewhere along the line, the Pen Input Panel stopped working. Not that it doesn't work, but I can't find anyway to get it to appear. I've tried changing the gestures and even setting one of the laptop buttons to "toggle input panel." No luck. (It's also a ThinkPad X41.)

Are you pressing down firmly enough? If not, sounds like the digitizer may have a problem... The digitizer is the layer in front of the lcd, it's job is to pick up the signal from your pen and send it to the motherboard. The motherboard should have two connections to the screen, one to the lcd itself and another to the digitizer. If you remove the screws on the bottom of the tablet you can take off the keyboard and see if both are connected right.

I want to write pen with toshiba portege tablet on XP


If you have Windows XP tablet PC Edition 2005 installed on it, you can use the Wacom Pen to enter text instesd of type it.

On Windows XP tablet PC Edition 2005, there is an Input panel Icon on the tray bar, usually to the left, close to the Start button.
Use the pen to click the Input Panel. When it opens showing you a black line on yellowish backround you can start using the pen as if it were on paper. Depending on the pen input setting it will insert automatically or waits for you to press the insert button.
However for the converted text to be inserted you need to have a text editing software open (Word Pad for example.)

If when you open the input panel you see a keyboard you can change that to handwriting (continuous line) or typing separate letters.

The computer can be taught to recognize your handwriting: You will need to practice. You might have to download and install the relevant ink recognition package for your language. Look for it on the Microsoft tablet PC page.

Before you can use the assigned X41 Wireless ON/OFF key and other hot keys, you need to load the appropriate and specific Hotkey driver for your X41 and Operating system (XP, W2000, VISTA or W7):
If you do not have the drivers media, see this link or other on this Lenovo/IBM site: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-68000.html
ps. You can also locate the Wifi driver starting from the above site.
Hope it helps.
