My tablet worked perfectly until I got a new laptop, Windows Vista. The curser spazzes out and jumps across the screen wherever it feels like. Often when I don't even apply pressure at all, the mouse will keep skipping back to one place. (In Photoshop, it was like two conflicting sources of mouse when I tried drawing.)
I've tried many things. I've tried calibrating it, but that only works for about a minute. I've unplugged it an tried using it in every USB port. I've restarted my laptop. Yes, the driver is installed. I've even disabled my laptop's mouse! What the heck should I do?!
Omg... I just found out how to get around this problem, so see if it works for you. I found that I could download a special driver that would cause the 12000u aiptek tablet to work. Here's what it is called:
Download the driver, restart your computer, and there ya go! Saved me from having to spend even more money on a new pen tablet.
I found it simply by searching for "aiptek 12000u vista downloads" or whatever. Hope this helps!

Re: Windows Vista Issues
It may be a conflict with Windows Vista, it is most likely that you tablet manufacturers are aware of this issue and that they have either released updated drivers already, or that they are in the proccess of creating drivers to resolve this issue.
These kinds of problems happen often when there is a platform change / new release

this works on windows based computers, laptops, and desktops. The people at most computer store's don't know or don't tell you this tip, because they are sales people trying to make a sell.(1). Vista, and Windows 7 have a feature built in that tells you how well of an experiance you should have while operating, based on many different factors.(2). Vista's Windows experiance index is 1.0 to 5.9, Windows 7's Windows experiance index's range is 1.0 to a perfect 7.9, as you see the higher the index the better performance, Ergo experiance you will have with the computer.(3) Left Click on the start globe (microsoft flag), then take curser up to the right and Right Click on Computer, curser down to properties, then Left Click, a screen will pop up and show a Windows Experiance Index.Sometimes you will find 2 computer's that vary by a couple points, and the more expensive one has a lower Score. Just make sure they both are Vista, or both Windows 7. Good luck shoping for that nice performing PC
Go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for mice and pointing devices, click the '+' sign and right click on your touchpad and select uninstall, do the same on the keyboard line and then restart the pc.
Both touchpad and keyboard will be reinstalled and then ready to use again as it should be back to normal
I doubt so. I've checked for an updated driver, finding out they have a new tablet out just for Windows Vista. Bah. Well thanks for the help.
Windows Vista ...... same problems. Waiting solutions......
I have this problem as well. I tried downloading other drivers (that ended up being around 3gigs!?), but the problem comes back after a few days or so...
