Cintiq not drawing on screen instead it moves the mouse pointer around on the desktop

Ok so my cintiq DTI-50 wants to work sometimes while other times it does not. Here is the problem. Once I hook up my cintiq up to the laptop i began to draw on my cintiq screen with my cintiq pen and the cintiq won't recognize my pen at all, instead the mouse pointer on my laptop screen moves frantically. So if this makes sense my cintiq pen basically acts like a bamboo tablet instead of a pen that draws directly onto my cintiq. Please someone help. I turned my laptop and cintiq off, restarted my laptop and everything and sometimes it works while other times it doesnt want to. I even reinstalled my drivers numerous times.

Sounds like you have the display toggle on. Go into your wacom settings and turn it off.

how do i go into my wacom settings......like sometimes only sometimes does it do this. I go to my pen tablet settings and even my display settings and nothing happens. even though the computer says the main display was on the cintiq it still moved the mouse pointer around on the laptop screen.
