I had the same problem when I got my laptop (Vista OS). The solution is to update the new driver for your bamboo. They are out of date so you need to go here: http://www.wacom.com/downloads/driver-detail.php?id=196 Updated @ Apr. 9, 2009
This update should allow Vista to find it.

SOURCE: Loosing pressure sensitivity
I have a similar issue. I am on Windows XP (32 bit), using Photoshop CS3 and a Wacom Intuos 3. The pen will work fine for a day, maybe 1/2 a day, and then out of nowhere, it will lose pressure sensitivity. When I shut down the computer and close Photoshop at the end of the day it ALWAYS loses pressure sensitivity, and I get an error message saying that the "there is a problem with your tablet driver" and to reboot my computer, and reinstall the drivers. The problem is, when I reboot, there is still no pen pressure, and I have installed the most current driver no less than 5 times, and nothing works. I've figured out I can go delete the preference file for the Wacom tablet and then re-input all my settings in the Wacom Preferences window. Sometimes this fixes it, sometimes I need to open Photoshop, then re-input the Wacom Preferences, and then reboot Photoshop.
SURELY there is a way I can get my tablet working without having to jump on one foot and rub my belly and pat my head and and and...??

try checking the usb cable. change it for a new one. i'm using a motorola cell-phone usb connection cable an it's working fine with my bamboo tablet. also, try to upgrade your drivers and change your usb port.

In photoshop, press F5 to bring up your brush control window. Under shape dynamics and other dynamics and any other brush attributes you wish to control with your pen, make sure that control is set to "pen pressure" in the drop down menu. Hope that fixes it for ya.

Go to Control Panel, and open bamboo properties. There you select the "pen" tab. In the pen tab you will see tracking. Select pen mode and details. You can map the pad there. After mapping pen mode try it in mouse mode as well. Best of luck!
