I have a Wacom model CTE-640, and when I connect it to the USB port, it't no longer recognized, the blue light doesn't go on or any thing. I believe it's a problem in the tablet's USB cable, is there any way to fix it, or am I better off just getting a new one?

I'm having this same problem with my original Graphire (ET), with a replacement pen that's less than two years old.
I don't think it's a driver issue, based on the indicator light on the tablet itself. It turns green like it's detecting a click when either end of the pen is brought near the tablet. To me, that suggests an issue with the pen hardware. The mouse has no such problem.
I'd be very interested if anyone has a solution to this.
Make sure driver is installed and there is not any ? mark or yellow ! mark in device manager. Reinstall your tablet driver then check. Uninstall all usb driver from computer. Connect your tablet to computer then when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode. Make sure usb cable is works fine if you connect your tablet to computer with usb cable. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
Had the same problem and just solved it. Very easy. Turn off your
computer. Pull the power cable. Wait about 5 minutes. Plug it back
in and power it back up. No more USB not working prompt in your device
manager and your tablet should be back and running.
i just happen to have come across this site while looking for another stylus as well, so i went back to my google search and found this :D http://www.adorama.com/WABP.html?sid=1216684387994534 what a coincidence eh?
Sorry, I figured it out, it was because the serial to usb adapter i was using needed a driver, and then my computer recognizes it as an extra serial port. So, during installation it needed to be searched for automatically from my serial ports.
Check the port it is connected to. Wacom seems to only recognize serial ports 1-8. I use a USB to Serial adapter and had to reassign it to a lower port number from 12. Go into Device Manager, select the connected device, right click to select Properties, the the Port Setting tab, Advanced button, COM port number. Ok you way back out. uninstall the Wacom software, then reinstall it, following the reboot prompts. It loads a service that tends to hang if the device is not connected when it starts. I had started disabling the tablet and the service just so I can avoid a reboot when I change ports.
