New pen not responding to computer

I just got a new pen for my tablet and it isn't responding at all. I tried to calibrate it but its like the pen doesnt exist.. what should i do? I have a Gateway tablet CX2618. Before I lost my first pen it would work intermittently with the Tablet. The replacement pen doesn't respond with the tablet at all. Why?!?!? What can I do to fix this?

No Calibration for Wacom Pen


Sounds like your pen has problems, after so many attempts to calibrate the pen fail your tablet will automatically shut that feature off. I would suggest getting a new pen if possible and recalibrate it. The wire or fiber optic cable, which ever it has is bad to break where it bends down into the pen. Also the sensor in the end of the pen could have gone bad. I would contact the manafacturer on it and see what their tech's advise.

Ello My problem is when i boot after a factory reset i have touchscreen to calibrate and when i do it it gives me try once again it's stuck there


I am not sure you are talking about a tablet PC or the new craze of tablets.
For the tablet PC you should have a screen calibration utility. You can calibrate the display for the Wacom (or other) pen, or for the touch input.
When you calibrate the pen, any touching of the screen with anything other that the Wacom pen will be ignored.
Similarly, when you calibrate the touch, any input with the Wacom pen will be ignored and you will be asked to use the proper instrument.

To get back to your case , it is possible that you are not putting the finger at the right place or not pressing hard enough. That is just a guess and I may be off the mark for the new tablets, but not for the Tablets PC:

Touch screen not working


Have you tried a new battery in the stylus? They require AAAA size batteries. The first time my pen went out I thought it was the computer not responding, but it turned out to be a dead stylus battery.

Grip pen not responding


You could try recalibrating the tablet.  Open the tablet control panel, then click "About." Then hold Control while clicking "Diagnose..." and on the next screen -- the Diagnostics window -- you'll see a new button labled "Recalibrate..." Clicking that might do the trick.

Good luck.
