Question about Wacom Graphire 4 "Silver" 4x5 (WMM132369)

3 Answers

Tablet Driver I have a new Dell XPS 420 With Windows Vista. I bought a Wacom Graphire 4 and downloaded the Vista driver from Wacom. The Graphire pen and mouse work perfectly. However, every time I start my computer I get the annoying message: (Tablet Driver) The tablet driver is not running. Is there anything I can do to remove this message permanently? Regards,PhilipSmeeton.

Re: Tablet Driver

The service is actually running. To get rid of those messages completely and use all features of your tablet, uninstall driver 6.05-7 and install 5.05-7 instead.

Re: Tablet Driver

You may also use services.msc to restart any services containing the word tablet.

Re: Tablet Driver

Try this:

Type: services.msc
Scroll down to TabletService
Right click>Properties>Log On tab
Is service disabled? If so, enable it and I think that will solve your problem.

I had the same problem you described after I disabled this service.

Hi, I need a driver for Wacom Tablet (Blueberry) ET-0405-U for windows Vista. Can you please tell me where I can find it?

Try to download from:

You didn't specify the Vista version (32 or 64 bit), but 99% the 32 bit driver version will be OK. The producer suggests to uninstall the previous version of driver if one is already installed. (to uninstall, go to Control Panel, Programs and features and double-click the item that looks like "Wacom..." or "Graphire...")

Good luck

Wacom Graphire tablet connects to PC. Only "writes" in writing pad. Does not "WRITE ANYWHERE". Using Windows XP and MS Office 2003.

There are four versions of Wacom Graphire model listed on Wacom site.

Click HERE to link to download page.


NEW drivers will come out and you should visit this link to get the latest driver for your Graphire.

Here's one more LINK


I will close all applications including MS Office 2003.

Some malware program program (Example: Norton 360) ask user for permission before making any setting.

Please READ the pop ups /warning(s) and see is this pertains to COMPLETE Wacom Graphire driver / software installation.

Driver don´t work (MacOSX Leopard

Here are the steps that you need to take to fix your issue:

1. Uninstall the current Wacom driver via the Macintosh HD on your desktop--->go into the Applications folder and then the Pen Tablet folder and click on "remove tablet". Once you have done the removal you will want to run a "repair disk permissions on your Macintosh HD.

2. The repair disk permissions can be done via the utilities folder on your Mac HD. Go to "disk utility" and then run it. In that program select the Mac HD and choose "repair disk permissions".

3. After that is completed you will get a message that says permissions repair complete!
At this time you will want to reboot your computer.

4. After rebooting you will want to go and install the latest driver from Wacom's website, The most current driver is 5.08-2 for the Graphire 3 tablet.

That should do it!

Wacom Tablet


I had a similar problem. My wacom tablet only worked in photoshop. Very annoying. I was able to fix this by doing the following:

  1. Open Control Panel | Administrative Tools | Services
  2. Right click on TabletPC Input Services and pick properties.
  3. In the General tab make sure startup type is Automatic.
  4. Make sure the services is started.
  5. In the Log On tab make sure the radio button is on Local System, and check Allow service to interact with desktop.
I think I broke it in the first place because I was annoyed with the Tablet PC services running in the background, and tried to stop them. I've just learned to live with it.

Driver don´t work (MacOSX Leopard

I had the same problem, and finally I found a solution (as stupid as I don't know I didn't think about it before). Try to uninstall the driver (application > wacom tablet > uninstall) then download the last driver (june 2008 I think) and install it
