Resolution? Problem with Graphic Tablet.

Ok, so I just got a 8x6 Genius MousePen Tablet and just figured out how to install it in Vista, but now when I use my pen it won't reach the far right side and part of the bottom. When I use the mouse it does work. My latop's resolution is 1280x800 but when I set it to 1240x700 it does work like it should be, so I'm guessing that's what's wrong. I've messed with the settings I'm offered by the MousePen series thing that comes out in the inferior right corner of the screen (where the date is) but nothing solves my problem. So what can I do?

Re: Resolution? Problem with Graphic Tablet.

Do this open tablet setting( the one beside the windows time) go to pressure, on the sensitivity move a slider a little untill the apply bottom turn on, click on apply, (Not OK Just APPLY) then open a graphic software, for me photoshop is the choice, after photoshop comes up you can return to the mouse pen setting window and at this time press OK, you will have full screen work area after that, even when youclose your photoshop, hope be helpful,

I have a MousePen 8X6 graphic tablet and by mistake I plug the device to my laptop before installing the tablet software. Now I can not install this software anymore.

With the tablet unplugged from your system, Install the software that came with the MousePen. This will ensure that your system has all of the necessary drivers.
Once that has completed, plug your tablet into a different USB port on your laptop than what you used before. Once you complete this, it should work. What version of windows are you using?

My Genius Graphic Tablet has a short in the USB cord just past the USB plug. Any chance that I could replace this myself and where would I find a replacement part

In the cord or the usb port on the tablet?

Easy replacement at any store that sells usb cords. Just look for a usb adapter with a usb part that matches what goes into the tablet.

My pen wont respond on the tablet

No software aside from drivers are necessary. The Genius Tablet comes a configuration menu you can test. If you don't have this, you can get it for free from Genius' website.

You need to hold the pen close to the tablet to allow it to detect movement. I hold my pen <1cm from the surface. You may want to check the batteries.

Genius 8x6 MousePen Tablet not detected

sounds like a short in the wiring. the usb cable i very flimsy and very prone to breaking. if you know what your doing you could open it up and TRY to fix it, but if its under warranty get a replacement. thats about all you can do bro. stupid companies and their cheap craftsmanship.

Genius tablet 8x6 with mousepen

I had a similar problem myself, this is due to temp files which are extracted during an installation. What happened is that a program extracted a setup file that was Read only into the temp directory. and that this file could not be overwritten or deleted, by the system (as it should be able to. to fix look in your temp directories to find this bogus setup file, when you find it delete it.
