That's a fairly vague issue, but I might be able to help anyway. I had a tablet PC that was a demo model and when I received it, both pen and touch were either disabled or only partially working. Luckily, a factory reset restored all functionality as if nothing had gone wrong.
Fujitsu almost always set a restore point at initial setup (where it asks for you to partition the hard drive, etc.) so you can give that a shot.
- If you've had the computer awhile, try Windows system restore, found in the control panel or via a desktop search. This can revert changes you've made one iteration at a time until you're in business again.
- If not, reboot and get into the computer setup/BIOS - I can't remember with which key as I don't have a Fujitsu machine anymore - and from there you should be able to restore factory settings and reboot once more.
I know it's not the most detailed account, but hopefully it'll get you pointed the right way.
Sounds like the pen packed up, they do that but normally become intermittent first. Without a source of another pen to determine the nature of the fault, may I suggest a modest solution.
A pen that will function and also be an acceptable fit in the slot is available on eBay, - See - # 140504970431. A good price, and an exceptional supplier. At least it will confirm a pen or a screen problem.
Should you have an original (or copy), of the System Restore disk, I would appreciate you getting in contact, mine got trashed. Paul W.
Your tablet pc uses the Wacom Digitizer so the pen does not use a battery. It is possible that it could be the pen or the screen. It works with electromagnetic resonance technology and the screen produces this signal that the pen grabs, converts, and returns to the screen without batteries. The pen does contain compenents that can fail but so does the screen. You could try buying a replacement pen for around $20 dollars and see if that works. Worst case you would be out $20. If you had another tablet PC that uses a Wacom screen you could try the pen with that one or test the other pen with yours.
^The question is NOT asking about a USB thumb drive, and a lot of people seem to have failed to understand this.

I don't believe Bamboo pens work.
Are you pressing down firmly enough? If not, sounds like the digitizer may have a problem... The digitizer is the layer in front of the lcd, it's job is to pick up the signal from your pen and send it to the motherboard. The motherboard should have two connections to the screen, one to the lcd itself and another to the digitizer. If you remove the screws on the bottom of the tablet you can take off the keyboard and see if both are connected right.
