Windows Vista Issues

My tablet worked perfectly until I got a new laptop, Windows Vista. The curser spazzes out and jumps across the screen wherever it feels like. Often when I don't even apply pressure at all, the mouse will keep skipping back to one place. (In Photoshop, it was like two conflicting sources of mouse when I tried drawing.) I've tried many things. I've tried calibrating it, but that only works for about a minute. I've unplugged it an tried using it in every USB port. I've restarted my laptop. Yes, the driver is installed. I've even disabled my laptop's mouse! What the heck should I do?!

Re: Windows Vista Issues

Omg... I just found out how to get around this problem, so see if it works for you. I found that I could download a special driver that would cause the 12000u aiptek tablet to work. Here's what it is called:


Download the driver, restart your computer, and there ya go! Saved me from having to spend even more money on a new pen tablet.

I found it simply by searching for "aiptek 12000u vista downloads" or whatever. Hope this helps!

Re: Windows Vista Issues

Well, the driver works but the sensitivity of the pen decreased heavily. I really have to scratch the pen over the tablet to draw a line. Not very comfortable way to draw..

Re: Windows Vista Issues

It may be a conflict with Windows Vista, it is most likely that you tablet manufacturers are aware of this issue and that they have either released updated drivers already, or that they are in the proccess of creating drivers to resolve this issue. These kinds of problems happen often when there is a platform change / new release

Cursor restricted to top left area using graphics tablet

It's the windows 7 tablet feature that causes the problem. To solve it you have to disable it. Go to start -> search write "services.msc" (without the strokes) and hit enter. Now search for "Tablet PC Input Service" double click on it and when a little window pops up set Disabled under startup type list box. Now if you want to see effect immediately there is a button Stop, click on it, and wait until service is stopped. When done close both windows. This way you don't have to even restart your pc.

Cursor not aligned with monitor

I'm not familiar with the utility software that comes with the bamboo, myself, but I am using the Intuos3, just a bigger version.
Have a look at Start>Programs>Wacom>Tablet Properties
In here you will find all sorts of seetings and customisable features.
Your looking for 'Tablet' then 'Mapping' and maybe set for 'Full Screen' - I'm guessing it's set on portion.

Let us know if this helps - if not, we'll delve deeper

Ur issue is that the tablet itself can not be above the tower or the laptop. Magnets make it shake. I had that problem to anytime it was by the computer (only above for some reason) or by something magnetic, so avoid that and you should be fine.

Vista doesn't support many things.. you need to see if you can find a driver for it or revert back to XP, or get a new graphics tablet

Doesn't respond to the pen well

I had the same problem, and my fix was really simple. Did you make sure that your mouse and pen aren't on the tablet at the same time? I took my mouse off the tablet, the pen immediately stopped jumping around.

Subject: cybertablet 8600

I have had my cybertablet about 6 months. It works fine on my old computer but not on my new vista computer. I downloaded the new drivers from your website that say Vista on them but I still get a double cursor. I have found that many people on internet forums are having this same problem. Are you going to make a vista compatable driver for the 8600?

Why does my tablet suddenly start to randomly click and drag?

Sometimes the tablet (especially ones with buttons at the top such as Cut, Copy, Paste etc) reacts to pressure and not the tablet itself. Make sure theres nothing over them, that might help.
