Digitizer Pen not working since 8.1 update on my TPT2

2013-12-29, 9:50 AM

The Digitizer Pen worked perfectly in Win 8, but since updating to Win 8.1, I can not get the Pen to work.

Am I missing an update somewhere to enable the Pen to work?

Many Thanks.

 I removed the problematic device from Device Manager and then Scanned for Changes and the device started working again. 

 

Alexanda posted this : Solved. I installed the new Wacom driver from 09.03.2013 for Intuos, and the digitiser is forking now (dont know for how long). This is the link to the drivers: http://us.wacom.com/en/support/drivers taken from : Digitizer Thread 

 

 Alexanda's later posts indicate the problem returned even with the above steps. Nothing from Lenovo on this or myriad other issues with this device.

After following the instructions, it did eventually work. I had to go through the steps 2 or 3 times before it was successful (I kept getting the warning triangle in Device Manager).

Thank you for the pointers.

Sure thing. Glad to hear it is working. sometimes simply disabling and enabling works too.Lately for me though, removing it and letting DevMan find it again is the only fix. There has been no driver or Bios update activity from Lenovo on this device in quite some time. Its as if they want this device to go away.  I suspect that mainboard replacement is the only real fix for 95%  of the affected devices and they wish to avoid that scenario.  I cant say I blame them, wait yes I can.  They really could and Should do better.

I had that problem as well.  An old Window trick is to go into Device Manager and delete the driver.  Then do a  reboot.  Windows will find the driver and reinstall it.  Then it should work. 

 

Yes, you can go to the Wacom site and get their driver. It seems more accurate.  However, I found that if the installed driver was not working, then the Wacom would not work either. Uninstalling and rebooting does the trick most of the time.

Repeat the steps listed , device manager , remove the device listed as problematic and then scan for changes. Not sure why this happens but it seems to be a provolone for sure.
