No I would not repair it. The tip of most stylus are made of a conductive material that will not scratch the screen. But good luck you can get a new one from pretty much anywhere. I myself got one from Walmart that was a Stylus and a pen. Just be careful because you don't want ink on your screen LOL
Hope this helps

Gareway m285-e won't run windows 7


Mine will. Make sure your system requirements meet the minimum put out by Microsoft. I recommend using only the 32bit version. If it won't attempt to write to your hard drive, then you either have a bad copy of win7 or a bad hdd. My m285-e ran 7 like a champ and has great pen-touch support.

Tablet Pen moves very slowly across the screen. It used to work fine, but the last few times I've tried, the mouse ends up moving faster. I used to be able to move the pen across the tablet and the mouse...


This may be a processor issue, as mine does this too.
As for others, most issues surrounding the stylus are battery related.
I will help anybody with a broken, or inoperative stylus/pen get their pen operating again. I have started a business around this issue because so many people's pens are malfunctioning (including mine originally which drove me to do this). This was fueled by Gateway's lack of caring around the issue, and their attempts to charge ridiculous fees for customer service. I charge $20 to switch out the battery to get your stylus working again, plus shipping and handling both ways, about $25 total.

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.

The stylus pen works by pressure on the tip. Since the tc1100 uses an active digitizer, as soon as you come within range of the screen, the mouse should move (this is called pen-hover), however, if the tip is stuck upwards it will write or click instead just as if you were touching the screen.

Try carefully pulling out the tip using a needle nose pliers or your fingernails if they're strong, and then reinsert the tip gently. This should un-stick it. If this doesnt work, there may be an internal problem with the stylus.

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.
