Question about Wacom Bamboo Fun Small (CTE450) (CTE450S)
My Wacom Bamboo Pen isn't working properly when I log on to an account
on my Windows Vista.
When I first start the computer it works, but when I choose a user: nothing. I've tried downloading a driver for it off of wacom.com, but that didn't seem to do it either. It worked fine about a week ago. Any ideas?

I think you dropped the pen on its tip and broke the little ferrite sensing core. You can try to repair it by gluing the core back together - it worked for me. For detailed instructions on how to do it, go here:
or you can try to swap the core for the eraser and the tip (more involved - you would need to be very good with a soldering iron to attempt this). Either way - it's unfortunate that the pen is so fragile and that the user manual doesn't really warn you of this.

Your tablet is set under the handwriting setting. Go to system preferences and select ink under hardware. Then turn off handwriting recognition.

Try hitting the head of your pen into the palm of your hand 5 times and do the same with the eraser. Something about the humidity making the pressure thing in the pen stick idk. I had the same problem and this worked for me.
