Well, if the pen is messed up I'm not sure there is a ton you can do. You can go to control panel and wherever your hardware settings are (might be different with different depending on if you have xp or vista) and find the tablet pen settings and look at those. Other than that, I don't know what kind of tablet you have but you can normally order a new one. I don't think they are all that expensive, if I remember correctly. If the laptop is pretty new, you might try calling the company and telling them the problem and if they can't tell you how to fix it, they will sometimes send you a new one for free. Hope that helps.

This problem commonly occurs due to a stuck "nib" sensor (the sensor that detects pen pressure).
Take out the "nib" (important, so the sensor isn't damaged further) and whack the pen on your desk (or drop it on the floor
from 3 feet up). It re-seats the "nib" sensor when it's stuck. If this
doesn't work after multiple attempts, then the sensor may be too damaged.
Mabye you should buy a new pen. I had the exact same problem, but I bought a new pen and it worked perfectly. Call first and explain your problem to the website, and they should give you a new pen for free because of warrenty. Go to the WACOM website and look for the phone number in the top-right corner. That is all except to wait for your new pen that should arrive in two or three days tops.
ya, i had teh same problem ... i had recenlty downloaded "pen attention" its a software that some guy made to make the pen curser look bigger in one note ... i uninstalled this program and now the problem is gone!!! so just make sure that you delete any programs that you have downloaded tht might be interfeering the the tablet's performance (especilaly programs or addons that my have been developed by non-wacom personelle for the tablet)
Well... I contacted Wacom support and the guy who write back recomended me to change the nib, to turn 3 times the eraser and to hit 4 times with the pen onto your palm hand...
Of course I didn´t do anything like that, I mean, what´s that??? An spell of some sort (or what)???
But what I did was the following (MAC-OS user):
-Enter to the pen tablet options on your preferences
-Switch the sensitiveness of the pen to the hardest
-Run an app that work´s best with your tablet and make some lines to check if at least in this mode the pen works
-Return to your tablet preferences and adjust at your best
I can´t explain why but my stylus is working fine again...
hope someone find this useful...
I had the same problem, and my fix was really simple. Did you make sure that your mouse and pen aren't on the tablet at the same time? I took my mouse off the tablet, the pen immediately stopped jumping around.
I had a similar problem with Vista which made the pen/cursor freeze just as the tip was placed on the tablet face. The problem turned out to be a Vista setting. I went to Start > Control Panel > Pen and Input Devices. Then in the Pen Options tab highlight the "Press and Hold" pen action and then press the "Settings..." button. In the dialog box that opens uncheck the "Enable press and hold for right-clicking" check box. Hit "OK". Worked for me.
Reason: Random clicks hapens becouse moving tip not return to the front. It continue to sent chaotic pressure messages. Some times, when you start to lift pen, tip start to resilient and we have ugly dots again.
Here is solution: May be auto silicon oil wil help by reducing rubbing. Or harder spring will help? I use little bit of plasticine. I push it under the tip. It prevent tip from resilienting. I have no problems, since i made this.
