Question about Genius Computers & Internet
Hello, I bought a new Genius Easypen i405X tablet 2 days ago, and followed the Driver installation steps carefully (Installing the driver first then plugging in the tablet later), and started testing the device. Everything was great except for a small annoying problem, when I hover the pen over the tablet surface about 1-2 cm away (without touching the surface with the tip) the mouse pointer clicks on the screen, usually a Right-Click. sometimes it drags items from the desktop at the area where I point the pen, or highlight text.. I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate x32, I tried the tablet on a laptop with windows XP, and it worked fine without any problems, not clicking when hovering at all. I tried it on another laptop with Windows 7, and the problem occurred again. I'm guessing it's because of something in the windows but can't figure out what it is! I've tried changing the tip, changed batteries.. etc. (those are solutions I found on other sites) but none of them worked. Please help, I want to use my tablet :(
Since you got this just a few days ago, you should take it back to where you got it and talk to them about what is going on. There is a warranty and you don't want to void that!

Dude i had the same issue and i just figured one thing. You said that when you change the batteries it works fine for a moment right? I used all this afternoon WITHOUT the baterry cover (the cover you remove to change the battery) and it never acted Odd again. Maybe it's something with the signal it emits or something. My problem was the weird jumping cursor thing and that it sometimes just stopped to be pressure sensitive. PLease try it and tell me if it works.

Hi , Mnemosyne , i'm the Guest who had the exact same of your problem , i contacted WACOM and there solution was as follow : " This problem is, although uncommon, usually easily fixable. The first and fastest solution is to simply press the eraser a few times to release it from binding on the side of the pen. If that does not work, pull the white plastic nib, and take a fingernail file (LIGHTLY) to the back end of the nib, making sure to remove any burs or flaring from the nib. I have seen this problem myself, albeit uncommon " , they also suggested if all fails then change the nib ( and thats exactly what i did , i changed the plastic nib with the felt nib - i like it better anyways thats why i didn't bother filing the plastic nib - and WALA my problem was solved and the pen is working like a charm , hope this helps .

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.
