Skipping and Shaking cursor

My tablet was just fine for the first two months, than all of a sudden it started to get bad. The cursor, whether with pen or mouse, literally shakes and skips rapidly, and makes very jagged lines. Ive reinstalled the driver, checked the balance of the sensitivity, and such. Nothing works!. It wasn't as bad when it started ,but it gradually yet really quickly got worse and worse every time I used it.
I than tried it at a school computer which had CS3 and some other various tablet driver things, and it was just fine. I'd really like to fix this asap, I cannt make decent artwork or ink with consistant lines, and it is VERY! fustrating.

x_x anyone to help? I hardly want to deal with phoning a company, those are always such a huge hassle and hardly do any good, Im no good over a phone.


I have the same #$%^&*   problem with my Wacom tablet pen and even the Wacom mouse.  Mine is an Intuos 3. Help.  Cheryl H-T

    my pen shakes violently as well. There are ways that i can make the shaking less violent but it never completely goes away. If i hold the pen a certain way then the shaking is not so violent.

    I have the same problem. My cursor shakes violently. I have tried the monitor thing. I have a mac and i move the pad as far away as i can and still get violent shaking. I can hold the pen at a different angle and the cursor is less shaky but still shakes.

    It's strange, I had the same problem with my old tablet when I was operating on Vista, my tablet worked fine on a mac, so I blamed Vista.
    But now I'm back to my XP and lo and behold, the shakiness is back. I don't use the mouse, only the stylus, I can't continue using this computer if this continues, animation is one of my few joys in life D:

    I'm wondering if there's a way to modify the distance from which the mouse registers to the tablet because I just reinstalled the driver and the mouse still reacts a finger's width away. It's neat and all but it makes navigating the cursor a hassle since it keeps jumping around when I lift the mouse. A temporary solution I've come up with is just increasing the mouse speed so I can make do with small movements without lifting the mouse but does anyone have any ideas how to fix this? Also if my description of the problem doesn't make any sense please tell me, I'm not really sure how to describe it but I'll try to elaborate better. Thanks for reading!

There is a problem with the compatability of your tablet and your monitor. You either have to change your monitor to a different refresh rate or simply move your tablet abit further way from your monitor. If possible, you could change your tablet to "single mode" (depending on your tablet).

What would be the "single mode" he said?

Tablet pen's cursor skips around in 3 places?


The cursor skipping in three places is apparently caused by the connectors inside the tablet getting dirty or corroded.
Fortunately, you can easily fix this problem yourself! All you need to do is unscrew the back of your tablet, unplug the connectors and clean them with a q-tip dipped in alcohol.
There is a video on YouTube that shows you step-by-step how to do it(it's easy!).
It's called: Howto fix dead areas on any graphics tablet and it's posted by riodroid.

Hope this helps!

My Genius Mousepen 8x6 tablet isn't working with the pen. If the pen touches the tablet, the light lights up, but the cursor doesn't click and it won't move either. The mouse is working fine, though.


My i608 pen stopped working today. I've had it for a month. The mouse was working fine, but the pen wouldn't work at all. Then I left the mouse on the pad and used the pen while the mouse was on the pad, and the pen started working again. Now it works even without the mouse on the pad. Did it re-establish the radio connection or something by doing that? Anyway, saved me the $25 replacement cost.

My cursor won't stop shaking excessively. I can't click on anything either unless I slam down on the mouse really hard.


Have you replaced the batteries?
Otherwise, reduce the sensitivity of the mouse in the Control Panel.

Wacom tablet won't recognize pen


Hmm. I've had a similar thing happen with my tablet. Have you tried removing the tablet pen from the list of tools in tablet preferences and then adding it to the list again before checking the 'About' section of the tablet pen set-up and clicking the 'diagnose' button there in? As that worked for me when my tablet pen was not working. The pen was recognized by the tablet after that.

Skipping and Shaking cursor


I have exactly the same problem as you, my tablet worked perfectly for the first three months and then started to act weird, shaking and skipping screen areas, even if i only touch it with my forearm.

Uninstalling/Re-Installing drivers didn't solved anything, so i started switching my tablet to different usb ports in my pc, and from one to another, the problem got a lot better. It didin't solved it, but works "decent". So, comparing yor experience with mine, it's probably an usb-port problem, rather than the tablet itself i thik.


I will test it in othe computerts to see how it goes

Skipping and Shaking cursor


I had a similar problem years ago w/ my ss III 12x12 that had worked flawlessly for years. I talked to tech support and they said move it away from monitor (crt) or other source of RF interference - this did not help mine. I tried replacing the power supply w/ generic one - no help. I noticed that the power supply voltage was spiking when check w/o load. After talking to an electric guy I know, he suggested a voltage regulator. Finally I built a home-made voltage regulator and wired it into the generic supply line -Problem solved This was about 10 years ago - still working good today.

could be that it is too close to the monitor - radio frequencies interfering -- try to put tablet farther away from wherever it's plugged in...

Why does my tablet suddenly start to randomly click and drag?


Sometimes the tablet (especially ones with buttons at the top such as Cut, Copy, Paste etc) reacts to pressure and not the tablet itself. Make sure theres nothing over them, that might help.
