IdeaPad Flex 5-1570 Pen Stops Working Mid Stroke



I've owned my IdeaPad Flex 5-1570 for about 5 months now and during that time was very pleased with the pen's functionality. Typically, I use my laptop as a tablet to write down notes for classes, and the pen proved to be pretty reliable despite the sweat from my hands dirtying the screen.


However, ever since I replaced the pen's battery about 2-3 weeks ago, I now quite frequently experience issues with it failing to register my strokes. Oftentimes, the pen will loose tracking mid stroke, requiring me to repeat a letter nearly ten times before it finally registers correctly. Attached below is an example of me trying to write a sentence normally.

Since my laptop is my main method of taking notes, this issue has become quite unbearable for me. Any help would be greatly appreciated!


Thank you in advance!
