To make the 1st solution even easier, disconnect the tablet from the usb port, lay the pen flat on the tablet surface and plug the tablet back in. Worked like a charm for me.

Go into the system preferences. mine shows up under other. click the tablet icon. go in and under tool erase the existing mouse and pen tool. then put each item on the tablet pad so it will recognize them. They should then reload into the tools section and be reset to the original settings.

    Forgot to check my Windows 7 preferences so you solved my issue. The pen/tablet settings were overriding my Intuos settings.



Try activating mouse keys [where you use the number pad to move the mouse] and then hitting 5 (on the number pad.)

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. 

Wacom Tablet overly sensitive

i had the exact same problems with my graphire4 pen.
take a tool to remove the tip of the pen. just blow inside the pen, put the tip back and press it in back but not too hard. works like magic!

Initial Delay of tablet pen

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.
