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?!

    I doubt so. I've checked for an updated driver, finding out they have a new tablet out just for Windows Vista. Bah. Well thanks for the help.

    I have this problem as well. I tried downloading other drivers (that ended up being around 3gigs!?), but the problem comes back after a few days or so...

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:

hp12000u_vista_driver_beta

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!

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..

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

How to tell which computer is the best for the money!


this works on windows based computers, laptops, and desktops. The people at most computer store's don't know or don't tell you this tip, because they are sales people trying to make a sell.(1). Vista, and Windows 7 have a feature built in that tells you how well of an experiance you should have while operating, based on many different factors.(2). Vista's Windows experiance index is 1.0 to 5.9, Windows 7's Windows experiance index's range is 1.0 to a perfect 7.9, as you see the higher the index the better performance, Ergo experiance you will have with the computer.(3) Left Click on the start globe (microsoft flag), then take curser up to the right and Right Click on Computer, curser down to properties, then Left Click, a screen will pop up and show a Windows Experiance Index.Sometimes you will find 2 computer's that vary by a couple points, and the more expensive one has a lower Score. Just make sure they both are Vista, or both Windows 7. Good luck shoping for that nice performing PC

Is this still under warranty? Sounds like the display has been compromised and the liquid is oozing out (LCD = Liquid Crystal Display). That particular malfunction is extremely rare!

Erratic curser, jumping


Go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for mice and pointing devices, click the '+' sign and right click on your touchpad and select uninstall, do the same on the keyboard line and then restart the pc.

Both touchpad and keyboard will be reinstalled and then ready to use again as it should be back to normal

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.
