Question about Palm Tungsten T3 Handheld

1 Answer

Task bar not recognized

Just recently my task bar stopped being recognized by my stylus. This only happens when palm is fully extended. It may be from installing a new program, however I deleted all my new programs since it was working and it doesn't help. When I tap on the task bar it seems to activate the buttons above the task bar. For example, when the keyboard is displayed, and I press the home key on the taskbar, it highlights the 'int.' button on the keyboard. I tried to
re -syncronize my stylus but it doesn't have any effect. I'd really like to get the use of my task bar back!

Try recalibrating the digitizer ans see if that helps.

Have you tried doing a hard reset? (WARNING! All data is lost, so make sure you have a backup!!)

If the problem does not go away after that then you have a hardware problem.

My HP tm2 digitzer pen suddenly stopped working but everything else is fine the touch screen still responds to my finger just not the pen. what could be causing this and how do I fix it?

First thing to try is re-callibrating your stylus. See if your system recognizes it. If not the next thing to try is installing this HP Stylus Driver SP48676 found in this posting
tm 2050er pen problem
It was difficult finding this driver pack. If you search under your model you will only get the original driver, you may need to cut and paste the following link into your browser window.

This link contains more helpful information but its links to sp48676.exe don't work.
touchscreen and pen not working on hp touchsmart tm2

If your stylus still doesn't work try the advice in the last comment in the thread by NickGl Student ‎01-28-2015 11:27 PM

I had the same exact problem as you and I finally got it figured out. Go to your task manager then to the services tab and scroll down to the task TabletInputService and you should see that it is stopped and when you right click and hit start you get an error message saying that it pretty much could not find any supported devices. So click the Services button in the bottom left corner of the task manager and find the task Table Pc Input Service and right click it and go to properties. Once you are in properties stay in the General tab and change the Startup type from disabled to Automatic and then apply the setting. You should now be able to start the Tablet Pc Input Service and the touchscreen and pen will work.
Hope this helps out someone being such a late post.

How to get the task bar to it natural size?

It is possible to make the task bar taller than it is by default, and this is the only way that I know of to change the size of the task bar, so I have to assume that you are asking how to take the task bar back down to the original "tallness." You would put your mouse cursor at the top of the task bar until it turns into a double-headed arrow, and then click down and drag the top edge toward the bottom of the screen until it is the normal height. If the task bar is locked, this cannot be done, so make sure it is unlocked by right-clicking on an empty spot on the task bar and make sure that "lock task bar" is not checked first.

Ctrl+ALT+Del does not launch Task Manager on my MobilePro 900, why?

The Ctrl-alt-del short cut to the Task Manager is not on the MobilePro 900. To bring up Task Manager on the MobilePro 900, hold the "Alt" key and then tap the task bar with the stylus simultaneously. A menu with "Task Manager" and "Properties" will be displayed, select Task Manager.
