Problems with X200 Tablet?

2010-02-17, 23:27 PM

Hello,

I recently purchased a X200 Tablet with Windows 7 installed, and I have some queries about some possible problems:

 

 1. I find that when I use my digitizer pen, it becomes inaccurate quite quickly. Sometimes it can become annoying to use after and hour, or after the system is resumed from sleep or hibernation (or when restarted). This means I have to calibrate the pen around 2 to 4 times a day. However, this is not a problem when touching the screen with the finger.

 

 2. The tip of the digitizer pen can move sideward (and slightly in and out, but I wouldn't be surprised if this is how the pen works) and although it doesn't pose a problem (other than possibly causing the problem in the 1st point?), I am wondering whether this is normal.

 

3. When swiveling the screen round in tablet mode, the screen clicks into place, but is not held there very firmly, i.e. I can press the screen down till it touches the keyboard, and it would bounce back up again. Again, I'm wondering whether this is normal.

 

I'd like to point out that this is my first tablet pc, so, to put it bluntly, I have no idea if I should be worried about these things. I'm also probably a bit paranoid, as these things don't come cheap.

 

Excuse me if these questions may seem a little trivial, but I haven't had any luck finding any answers to them

Download the Wacom Bamboo drivers from the Wacom site and see if that improves the calibration.

 

When I performed this, I had a positive experience.

Erm, I've looked around on the Wacom site and can't find a Bamboo driver for a Windows 7 Tablet PC. Will the one for Vista work on Windows 7?

 

EDIT: Nevermind, I just intalled the Vista driver and it seems to wrok fine. Ill have to check whether the problem still persists though.

It's not perfect, but it should be pretty good.

 

I do remember the X61 tablet having an almost perfect calibration out of the box. Maybe there is more distance between the screen and the input recognition panel in the X200 than in the X61.
