Help with Glitchy Tablet

:icondeenacoulthard:

I've been having some trouble with my Bamboo Tablet for a little while now.

The problem is that it won't respond to my pen, and yet it will move with my finger???

And yet, even when it was working with the pen, it was just constantly in 'click' mode.

Dunno if this makes sense, but I could use any help I can get!

It's a driver problem. Uninstall the driver you have an install the latest driver from the Wacom site.

It also could be a broken pen, but see if the driver fixes it and report back :)

I did try that. That was when it started working with the finger, rather than just nothing.


I'm gonna see if I can find a new pen.

Have you tried rebooting your computer? You can also reinstall the software for your bamboo. It should work.
