Question about Wacom Intuos A4 Graphic Tablet
Uninstalled driver that stopped it working and returned new small tablet to Harvey Norman as it did not have a driver. I tried to re-install with the original disk which did not work. A friend downloaded the newest driver from Intuos, and I loaded it but it did not make a shred of difference. Dead as dodo. Uninstalled that. Tried the pen on an old laptop with same program (originally I installed it there). There is nothing wrong with my pen or tablet. I can use Photoshop Elements 7 with the mouse, ha ha. Not great for a graphic artist. Is this a Microsoft problem? Wacom Problem? Intuos Problem? Or some hidden agenda from an unknown. This is so infuriating as I need this tablet to finish a couple of kids books for Christmas. I am devastated and still in shock.

SOURCE: Pen is always drawing
I have experienced the same problems in the aforementioned cases about the pen randomly highlighting things on the desktop/making selections, as well as loss of double tapping feature for double clicking. For my situation, I am pleased to say that I've managed to resolve the problem it may or may not help but worth a try. The solution:
(1) go to control panel and open up the 'Pen Tablet' icon,
(2) under 'Tracking' select 'Pen Mode' and click on 'Details' tab,
(3) under 'Screen Area' select 'Monitor' (*IMPORTANT*)
(* other settings I have are: 'unchecked' force proportions, 'Tablet Area' set to 'full', number of monitors under 'Screen Area' set to 1)
Following the above steps should remedy the problem. It worked for me. I hope it proves useful to you as well.

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.

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!

SOURCE: Wacom Intuos 3 problems
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
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

Hey I had this problem too with my Bamboo too, I'm not sure if it was anything I changed or whatever but either way the blue light was on but it wasn't registering the pen.
I found a way just minutes ago to fix it however!
Go into 'start', 'all programs', then look for 'pen tablet'. Hopefully you should have this. If not then download the latest driver for your tablet from the wacom website and that should install it.
Next choose 'pen tablet preference file utilty'. Then under 'my preferences' choose to remove. Bingo! All was well in the world again.
This worked for me so hopefully it will for some of you guys too! Good luck!
