Wacom Bamboo Tablet Pen Not Working?

I’ve had a Wacom Bamboo Pen Tablet for nine months, and the pen has been working fine until today. The nib is normal and fine, and the tablet lights up just like it’s supposed to. However, the pen doesn’t have any reaction with the tablet or move the mouse. I already tried re-installing the drivers twice. What should I do?

  • Open the Preference File Utility under Wacom Tablet in your programs in the start menu (assuming you running Windows Xp or later) Remove all user preferences (backup first if you want, however if the prefs are the cause of your trouble-you don’t want the backup anyhow). Restart your computer and try the pen again. Here is a link to Wacom’s troubleshooting guide.http://www.wacom-asia.com/support/faq/question/sq1…

    If the lights are all on but nobodys home, your hardware is probably okay and the trouble is more to do with drivers and/or Windows (or whatever OS)

  • I use the Bamboo tablet for over two years, an I am very pleased with it. Until few days ago, when I touch the pen anywhere on the tablet, the cursor will go to the left upper corner of the screen and only there. No movement possible. What’s wrong?

  • The best way is to download Ccleaner here http://bitly.com/UrALrK

    Or you can go on Windows operating system locate the command prompt and go there to do the following:

    Create a Recovery file of system and date it today.

    Then begin by;

    delete the ‘Temp’ folders..they have hidden subfolders so you need to set the attributes in order to bypass this. For each subfolder delete all cookies and rubbish left behnd after install-uninstalled programs. Do a ‘dir’ command to check your progress. Make sure the ‘Temp’ file is empty.

    goto c:windowsprefetch and delete everything in there..no exceptions

    goto c:windows folder and delete all the ‘$’ files that have been installed by updates. They can all be succesfully deleted and just take up disk space.

    Locate the Internet Temporary Files..Check to see how high the saving level is..some have it set at 30 days..but that stores faaaar tooo much data..though it slows down the system overal. Keep this to a minimum..suggest 2 or 5 at most.

    Delete all ‘cookies’ all those you don’t need.

    Locate the windows directory and go through the folders you know and those you don’t need. Check this once a week at least. Some programs will install under XP as NT and older systems where there is no check of systems weight.

    Check to see that system files have not changed since last booting. Things like .ini files or .bat are important items.

    Check for ‘Hidden Directories’ all over the disk…do this at the command prompt:

    dir *.* /ah wil show these hidden directories

    Check the ‘dir’ command for all parameters
