Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

1 Answer


I have a pre-installed version of Tablet PC on my HP Pavilion DV9925nr, with Windows Home Premium SP1 64 bit, (I bought my computer about a month ago). I'm using my Wacom Graphire 4 drawing/pen tablet which works great with my Corel, Photoshop, PhotoPerfect, etc. It’s the board I used when I first tried the ‘Tablet PC’ option and everything worked fine. But after working the first few times, I tried it again a few weeks ago on the 'on-screen' slide-out input panel, it stopped! Like I said, it worked fine when I first tried it, and then about 2 weeks ago, I tried it again and the pen acts as if it's out of ink. All the other functions work, (such as the keyboard, typing, etc), but no more writing. I presently am waiting in limbo for Microsoft's tech to return my emails on the results of all her suggestions, (none of which worked), and system restore is not an option, (long story). Any suggestions out there?

    That suggestion sounds good but I don't know where or how to check my ink settings. Can you tell me exactly how to do that? As far as system restore, I was refering to restoring to an earlier point in time when the Tablet PC worked, not a full system restore. But as I said, both are out of the question for reasons that I don't care to get into right now. Anyway, any help on the 'ink' adjustment I asked for would be appreciated greatly.

    You seem to think I'm talking about a Image Painting program like Corel, (I've been working with that program and others for well over 5 years), but I am having trouble with a PRE-INSTALLED program from Windows Vista called Tablet PC, (please re-read the intitial request for help). I don't think that you're familiar with this program based on the replies you've written so far and so, though I greatly appreciate your willingness to try and help me, (I really mean that), I'm afraid that the time it would take for me to explain this program to you in detail would be far longer than the time I have. But again, Thank You very much for trying.

    Thanks, but as I stated in my original request: "...I presently am waiting in limbo for Microsoft's tech to return my emails on the results of all her suggestions, (none of which worked), and system restore is not an option, (long story)...", I've been there, done that and did it with HP too.

    The truth of the matter is that I screwed with something inadvertantly sometime after I intially, (and successfully), tried the Tablet PC program and because I made the mistake of logging into my computer each day as the Administrator User instead of the Standard User, I seriously doubt that my problem can ever be fixed. Just an FYI for those interested, today I opened a new User Account and name and then tried the Tablet PC program and still did not get it to work. So I'm guessing that the trouble lies in, not one, but several areas of my Administrator changes. I'd like to thank all of you who have tried to help and if anyone out there likes a serious challange and would like to pit their PC IQ up against this problem, please go back and carefully read my initial request for help and then feel free to give it a try. I'll look in on this site at least once per day and will respond to you with the results of your 'fix-it' suggestion. It's kind of like a contest at this point:)

In the programs that don't work, check your ink settings. Mine kept going to white until I got them set to black as default.

NEVER use system restore unless you have already tried malware scans, spyware scans, virus scans AND registry repair programs to fix software related problems. It is a LAST RESORT ONLY, just like FORMAT C.

    In Corel Photo, you have to go to the colored samples. There is one for paper, one for fill and one for paint. Double tap the one you want to change and select your color from the drop down. What other programs are you trying to use. Also, did you try to make any changes in the control panel?

  • David Shaub Feb 26, 2009

    I'm looking at the Microsoft website on my Averatec tablet pc. The only thing I can find about changing ink color is program related. The tablet & pen settings in the control panel, only allow calibration and different click functions. Since HP didn't get back to you, I would suggest Microsoft. They wrote the program.

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.

Hp pavillon tx1000 12.1 inch touch screen cursor stays at bottom left hand conrner

Clean the screen with a clean soft cotton cloth is the step #1

Step 2:
SEE FULL instruction HERE

Calibrate the touch screen
The command buttons and fields are displayed on the screen image at specific pixel points. To initiate a response, the touch screen interface needs to recognize exactly where a fingertip or pen touches the screen relative to the pixel position of the display. Each user has a slightly different hand-eye coordination response. Calibrating the touch screen allows the interface to compensate between where the program is expecting a touch and where the touch actually occurs. To calibrate the touch screen, place the tablet notebook in the desired orientation and do the following actions.
  1. Click or tap Start > Control Panel > Tablet PC Settings to open the Table PC Settings window.
  2. On the General tab, select the option to display the menus in either the Right-handed or Left-handed position.
  3. On the General tab, select the desired screen orientation from the drop-down menu, and click or tap Calibrate . Follow the instruction to touch the screen at the specified points. Repeat this calibration action for all four of the screen orientations, then click or tap Apply .
  4. On the Handwriting Recognition tab, select the Use the handwriting personalization option.
  5. At a later time, you can return to review the Go to Pen and Input Devices and Go to Input Panel Settings options to make using the touch screen to control programs and input text easier and more accurate.

Compare your version of the firmware to the latest one at HP offical site HERE

Always get the latest firmware to avoid problem.

Always keep the screen clean!
