Question about Dell Latitude XT Laptop Computer Tablet PC

My pen for my computer won't work

I tried to make sure it wasn't accidentally turned off (because things like that sometimes happen) and it wasn't, so I tried restarting it, but it still wouldn't work. I can still touch the screen with my hand, use the track pad, and that blue dot thing in the keyboard to move the mouse fine and it doesn't have a problem. Can anyone fix this for me?

I think the pen has gone bad on you, since your screen can still detect your hand and the track pad. I would think the pen is faulty. Try another pen cause I think your original is bad, if it was the touch feature that wasn't working I would say its a driver problem but that feature still works with the exception of the pen. Get another pen.

I agree with the responder. We had problems with the tablets ceasing to respond to pen taps. When we replaced the pens, that seemed to solve the problem. I am wondering how sensitive the pens are to being dropped.

The pen on my Samsung Galaxy tab 3 only works sporadically. ..... it'll start recognising threw pen when it's about 2 inches away from the tablet...... there are some spots. .....s note mainly. ..... that...


you mean galaxy note 3 .first be sure the pen has a nib in it not a hole where one has fallen out. then it is about 1/16th or so outof the pen and rounded next try replacing the pen nib your phone came with a packet of replacements. they pull out and are snapped back in. Last and for sure , there is actually a battery inside the pen if it is old and weak you will have to get another pen say from ebay (best price) but before you do go to phone store and use one of theirs to test . if you have the same problem and only certain spots do not work on the screen then your digitizer screen is in need of replacement. also another ebay cheapest item. but whatever it turns out to be it is fixable. come back if you need advice will check every couple weeks.
So pen has nib , or nib needs replacement,pen has weak battery and need replacement or digitizer needs replacement. all solutions are under 100 dollars most under 50 . no nibs or bad nibs under 15.

I bought a Samsung GALAXY Tab 4 7.0 tablet several weeks ago and it has worked beautifully until this week. It will no lomger access the internet or even attempt to scan for internet access. How can I


Have you tried turning it off, letting it sit for a minute or so, and then turning it back on? You need to turn your tablet/phone off and reboot periodically or it "forgets" how to do things - just like a computer, because that is what it is. Another thing you can check for (under Settings) is, have you accidentally turned off the Wi-Fi button? Or have you accidentally put the tablet in Airplane Mode (also under Settings)? Either of those two things will make your tablet unable to search and connect to available wi-fi networks. Hope that helps.

I DONT HAVE INTERNET ON MY HTC JETSTREAM TABLET BECAUSE IT WILL NOT HOLD THE CONNECTION WITH THE HOME WIFI. CAN YOU HELP, PLEASE?undefined


How long has your tablet been turned on without rebooting it? Tablets are just like computers, they need to be rebooted every so often or they "forget" how to do certain things, and wi-fi is one of them, in my experience. Turn off your tablet, let it sit for a minute, then turn it back on again. This should help. If not, check under Settings to make sure someone hasn't accidentally turned off the Wi-Fi button or put the tablet in Airplane mode - both of these things will effectively keep your tablet from connecting. I would try rebooting first.

Installed a new router and now my speakers don't work. How do I fix this?


The router change shouldn't have any affect on your sound or your speakers. You need to start checking things out. Is sound accidentally shut off at the speakers?? Have speakers came unplugged at back of computer?? Has the sound been mistakenly shut off at the keyboard?

The Pen


I'm not familiar with your laptop but judging from all the pdas I've had with touch screens the pen itself is only a pen, you could basicly use a wooden stick to poke at the screen and it shouldn't make a difference to the computer.

this laptop has a touchscreen If I'm not mistaken and you should be able to use it even with your fingers.

You might have a faulty touchscreen or then you need to install a driver for the screen?

Gateway tablet screen does not respond to pen.


I have a Gateway CX2724 and previously had another Gateway tablet (model I don't remember) but they both look alike and use the same pens. I've had 3 pens and they all periodically stop working. When one stops, I pick up another pen and work with it so that makes me think the problem has more to do with the pen. (They have all died and later come alive.) Sometimes though I can't find the extra pen and have resorted to removing the working pen tip / nib and reinserting it very snugly after wiping off the shaft. The nib is held in merely by friction. You can remove it by pinching its little tip between your fingernails and pulling it straight out. I wipe off the shaft and put it snugly back in. Sometimes I don't take it out, but just press it harder into the pen by pushing it firmly onto a padded surface (so that the tip doesn't deform.) Usually one of these "treatments" works. I know that extra nibs are available with the pen. There must be some reason that the manufacturer thinks they may need to be replaced periodically. But I've never seen any documentation on this.
