Question about Wacom Intuos3 12x19

Open Question

Wacom Intuos 3 tablet not working when plugged into USB ports.I recently replaced a motherboard and have reinstalled everything but still having problems with my Wacom.All the USB ports are working since I have tried with other devices.When the Wacom is plugged in the Blue LED light goes on but it flickers and the pen cursor doesn't show on the monitor. And the LED light doesn't turn Green when the pen is on the tablet.There is no problem with the Wacom since I tried it on my wife's Apple laptop and works fine.Any solutions?Thanks

    my intuous tablet has always worked fine until about a week ago when I kept being prompted to reinstall my tablet drivers out of nowhere. That worked fine a few times but now it is completely non-responsive when I boot up and when I make contact with the pen on the tablet the blue light switches to green.

    anyone know why?

    My wacom Bamboo isn't working. It's brand new and my USB ports are working just fine.

    yeah, same here. it was working fine on 2 machines. then i reinstalled XP on one, and the wacom began its flickering/sporadicly responsive shenanigans. it was working fine on a Vista machine, but today that same problem occured. no amount driver reinstalling seems to help. its still working fine on a third machine, so i KNOW its not the tablet. this is driving me insane. please help!

SOURCE: serial to usb wacom tablet problem

I just got Vista and it killed my Intuos2 w/serial to usb also, but here's a half solution:
Download Wacom driver 4.78-6 http://www.wacom-europe.com/int/downloads/driver/driver.asp?lang=en. Make sure you remove any other Wacom drivers, tablet, and reboot. Install 4.78-6 driver and select serial port when the choice pops up. Plug in your tablet with the serial to usb adapter, wait a few seconds and click retry. Complete the install and reboot.
Your Wacom tracking should work now, but certain things might not work like pressure sensitivity and you'll get annoying error "reinstall driver" pop-ups.

I think you can aslo buy a PCI-serial card for your computer and skip the serial-usb adapter since Vista doesn't support the adapter for Wacom tablets.. but I'm not sure if there's a working Vista serial Wacom driver either.. or ever will be. The age of XP and Legacy support is at an end my friends.

SOURCE: Skipping and Shaking cursor

There is a problem with the compatability of your tablet and your monitor. You either have to change your monitor to a different refresh rate or simply move your tablet abit further way from your monitor. If possible, you could change your tablet to "single mode" (depending on your tablet).

SOURCE: My Wacom Intuos3 tablet won't switch into pen mode

I had the same problem with my Intuos3 on Vista. Tech support suggested the following.

Do this.....Go to Start--->control panel---->system(in classic view)---->device manager--->click on "human interface devices"--->then click on "Wacom virtual HID driver" and right click on that and disable it. Your computer will ask you to restart and you will want to do that.

Everything works fine now.

SOURCE: My Wacom Intuos3 tablet won't switch into pen mode

The winning answer came courtesy of Mr Benedikt Schmitt of Wacom Europe, who offered the following solution: from the Windows Device Manager, disable the “Wacom Virtual Hid Driver” device. (Go to Control Panel > System and Maintenance > Device Manager, find the driver, right-click it and choose “Disable”.) One reboot later (welcome to Windows-land, circa 2008?), everything works as desired. Pressure and tilt sensitivity inside Photoshop still work, and the pen functions just fine in the rest of the Windows desktop. The absolute mapping makes it an absolute pleasure to point quickly and precisely. It makes my laser mouse feel rather clumsy navigating a large 24′ screen!

My computer is telling me I need to reinstall the software for my Wacom Intuos 3 tablet. I run on Windows 7. I've done nothing to uninstall it, why is it doing this?


Windows 7 is not fully compatible with older devices. You can try and update the driver or restart the PC, remove the device, and replace the Wacom tablet in another USB/serial port which will force Windows to recreate the device in the registry hopefully fixing the configuration.

Wacom Intuos 3 problems


Hi Bengref
Just talked to WACOM USA about a similar (but not exactly the same) problem with my Intuos 3. One of their procedures was;

go to the ALL Programs directory,

go to the the WACOM TABLET directory

open the WACOM Tablet Properties window

click on the "About" button

while holding down the CTRL key, click on the "Diagnose" button

click on the "recalibrate" button

Another procedure

go to the All Programs Directory

go to the WACOM Tablet Directory

click on the :WACOM Table Preference File Utility"

Under "My Preferences" click on remove


Good Luck

Intuos 3 Pen input suddenly stopped working in Photoshop CS3 in Vista. It works in all other programs. I updated driver to v6.1.1 to no avail.


I have no idea why the pen worked in everything but Vista but I uninstalled everything and reinstalled version 6.1.1-3 driver a second time and everything worked again.
Don't know why it did not take the first time.
Thanks for the assistance.

Intuos 3 Pen/Stylus suddenly stopped working (as in dead).


Will the tablet work with the mouse? If it does not, is not working is the blue LED light on. If the LED is not working try another usb port. If the mouse works go into the Wacom tablet properties from the start menu. Select the grip pen from the tools. Click on the default button to restore the stylus to factory settings. When you press the pen you should see the pressure scale rise. You can also test the eraser pressure. You could also replace the stylus tip to see if that works. From the Wacom site you can order a new stylus or tips if it is found defective.
