To enable writing you need either Win XP Tablet edition, Vista Home premium and up or handwriting recognition software. Microsoft office 2003 has support for handwriting as well, but it needs to be installed as additional package. There are also many programs available from other developers.

I have a tablet certain letters do not work and I cannot delete or go to certain things it wont let me


Try using a stylus pen. If that doesn't work, try resetting it to factory specs. If that doesn't work, buy an iPad.

How to reset tablet with computer


Is this a windows tablet? If so, I imagine that you are running Windows 8. Point your cursor to the bottom right of the screen and click on the "Search" icon. In the text box, enter "System Restore".

If you are trying to format the tablet, you could place the unit in a docking station and boot the device through a USB image of the operating system. You can find loads of information on how to accomplish this through the Microsoft website.

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.

Pin does not work when touched to screen.


The stylus has a AAAA (yes, QUAD-A) battery in the body of the stylus - if this is dead, then the digitizer won't recognize the pen. That sounds like what is happening - the batteries can be found at bigger Radio Shacks or ordered online.

How to use the toshiba pen


First, go to your control panel and find the icon for the pen. Next, calibrate the pen and set up how you want it to work. The pen is not for use in every program necessarily but with handwriting recognition activated and a charactes set entered, it will wirk. It is also good for graphics, with a bit of practice. Some units let you erase with the back of the stylus, just like a pencil eraser.

How to use the pen


Using the pen is quite simple.
You extract it from its storage space and use it as a mouse, left clicking it as you would a mouse.
By pressing the tip of the pen on an area on desktop or on an application window and maintaining the pressure for a short while, you activate the context menus (the equivalent of a right click.)

On the Windows task bar (for Windows XP) there is a small icon near the start button that shows a pen pointing outside: that is the input panel. Click the icon with a mouse or your pen, and an input area opens. In that area you write with the pen (writing Pad) or enter letters and symbols one at a time (Character Pad) or use a virtual keyboard.

Under the red X that closes the input panel there is a small gear. C;ick the gear with the pen or a mouse to configure the settings.

Your pen may have an eraser at the rear end and/OR on the side. It is used to erase characters or whole sentences.

To actually record (write) what you enter with the pen you must have a text-editing application open and running.
Whenever you approach the pen to the screen near a text-area (search area of IE or other compatible applications) a small icon appears to be clicked to enter text. This happens is you select UNDOCK in the input panel configuration.

This should get you started with the pen. Try these steps, and if you have any other questions post them as comments to this thread and it will be my pleasure to answer them.

Problem with the touch screen an stylus


Press the Up + Down buttons at the same time. This will turn off the "Digitizer" function on the tablet and allow the user to use their finger, the stylus, or blunt end of a pen.

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?

Touch screen not working


Have you tried a new battery in the stylus? They require AAAA size batteries. The first time my pen went out I thought it was the computer not responding, but it turned out to be a dead stylus battery.
