Problem with Surface pro 3 stylus for Lenovo Yoga 2

Hi, I just got a Surface Pro 3 stylus from a friend, to use with my Lenovo Yoga 2. The stylus is designed for capacitive screen. So I assume it should works with the Lenovo Yoga 2 (At least I hope).

I paired it both of them together (see screenshot). But I have to admit during the pairing, the bar stopped at like 10 % and then it said Paired (my other bluetooth devices goes up to 100% before it pairs).

But it does not seems to works.

I can't use the pen at all.

 

My friend admitted it was not the orriginal pen as he lost it, but it still worked perfectly like the original. It is called Wireless Bluetooth 4.0 N-trig  Stylus Capacitive electromagnetic pen, he said.

 

My bluetooth driver are updated to the latest available for the lenovo yoga pro.

 

I really wish to be able to use this pen to draw. Thank you very much for all help you may provide.

The Yoga 2 doesn't have the stylus technology that the Surface Pro 3 does, so only a standard capacitive stylus would work.

Thank you very much for your answer. Do you know if there is a  way to mod the screen so it can accept it?

Any guide out there?

I don't think there's any way because you'll need to replace the touch digitizer with the Surface pen feature.

The Yoga Book is a great option (I have one)
