Two cursors when driver is installed on Windows Vista

I installed the driver on my laptop that has Windows Vista.  When I use the pen the screen shows two cursors.  I've tried unistalling and reinstalling, rebooting, unplugging and plugging to a different USB port.  Nothing seems to work.

    I have the exact same problem. It worked fine on my old computer, but now there's two cursors, and it's impossible to get anything done. This is a relatively new tablet, and I don't want to have to buy another...

    Same problem for me as well. Have tried contacting Adesso twice with no response. Can anyone ofer a suggestion?

  • Anonymous Feb 19, 2008

    Same problem here only with the adesso cyber 12000! It's driving me crazy and I can't get a response from Adesso!! I assume that this issue could be solved for both tablets if someone could find a solution.

    Yes I have Vista and the 6x8 tablet and I get two cursors as well... Also, it doesn't work well with photoshop, no pressure sensitivity...

    Same problem, i also installed the Aiptek V3.15 drivers and it solved the double cursor, it makes it work but gives you no way to change settings wiht it (sensitivity ect.)

  • dbinkley Aug 03, 2008

    Been searching forums for the past few hours and this is getting ridiculous. I am suffering from the same problems. Worked fine until i bought a new computer (running Vista.) The mouse bounces around and is useless.

    The odd thing is, when i open the tablet control panel, it works fine but as soon as i click on my desktop, the cursor starts dancing around and i wait to punch my screen.

    Plan to contact Adesso tech support on Monday, but from what i read about their availability, I am not getting my hopes.

    Feel like i got ripped off. Paid $200 for a piece of ****.

    i am having the same problem it worked fine when my computer was Windows XP, i upgraded my computer to Vista and now it shows two cursors and they shake. i thought that the problem was Pen Flicks which came with my Vista Package but the same thing happened when i shut that program off. i have also tryed reinstalling the software that came with the tablet but nothing happened. is there any soulutuion to this annoying problem?

    Having the same problem with my Aiptek Hyperpen 8000u pen. Works fine on XP but I get the double cursor with Vista. It helped when I updated the driver, but I still get the double cursor about half of the times that I put the pen on the tablet. I fix it, temporarily, by picking up the pen and placing it back on the tablet a few times...I guess this resets the location. But it's extremely annoying.

  • Anonymous Sep 14, 2008

    I wanted to post that I solved my problem by updating my drivers. Oddly enough, the website of the company that made my tablet (Aiptek) didn't have the most recent drivers. I actually found the drivers for Vista at Strange, but it works perfectly now.

I have had my cybertablet about 6 months. It works fine on my old computer but not on my new vista computer. I downloaded the new drivers from your website that say Vista on them but I still get a double cursor. I have found that many people on internet forums are having this same problem. Are you going to make a vista compatable driver for the 8600?

Wacom cintiq 12wx calibration

I had a similar issue using the 12wx with a 15" MacbookPro Retina. Screen displayed the desktop way too much to the left. I found that the refresh rate of 59.8 hertz seemed to not be compatible despite it automatically being set. After changing this to 74.9 Hertz, the desktop is now properly centered on the Wacom screen and can be calibrated now. Not sure if this applies to Windows machines but perhaps something to keep in mind.

Black screen v6000 laptop "HELP Please"

It appears the hard disk has been wiped/formatted and does not have an operating system installed.
You need to get a Windows Vista installation CD and if the Windows label on the bottom of the laptop is still attached then this label has the product installation code.
Boot up with the Windows Vista installation CD to install the Vista operating software then you need to install the Presario device drivers.

You can download the device drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the Windows drivers you require and install them. Click on this link to download the drivers: -
