x41 tablet touch screen no longer works

2011-12-11, 1:01 AM

I had to re-install winxp on my x41 tablet. I had no recovery partition and the recovery CDs did not work, so I had to install a fresh Win XP Pro.

The touch screen no longer works, i.e. the digitizer pen no longer works. I spent hours downloading drivers and software from lenovo support centre but nothing worked.

 

I have one device in hardware manager that is not working, it is an "Unknown Device" described as "on Intel(R) 82801FBM LPC Interface Controller - 2641". I cannot seem to find a driver for it.

 

I installed ThinkVantage system update software, which installed and updated all critical and recommended updates in addition to some of the optional stuff that seemed remotely relevant.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi salemkh and welcome to the forum,

 

The link will give you the driver that you're missing.

 

Windows xp won't give you tablet function. Only Windows XP Tablet PC edition 2005 will.  Microsoft never offered the Tablet Edition for sale to the public, only manufacturers could get it.

 

The only way to get tablet function is to get a set of restore discs.  That will load all your drivers and give you your tablet back.   

Dave

Had this issue as well but my searching turned up this thread:

http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/X-Series-Tablet-ThinkPad-Laptops/Lenovo-X41-Tablet-Tablet-Mode-Not-working/td-p/104932

 

sip11's post there worked and my tablet is functioning on my X41 Tablet again after fighting with the restore disks and having to buy XP to get it back up and running since i use it to control my HF radio which is easier with the stylus than it is with the nub.

 

here's a direct link to the file on wacom's site:

Hope this helps.

 

Might also note that this will add the Wacom ISD Tablet Properties in Control Panel which allows for better configuration and calibration of the pen & tablet interface the factory software seemed to always have the pointer about 3 to 4 mm to one side or the other of the pen tip.
