    Pen pressure gone?? +Rep +Thanks

    I have two tablets and no matter what I do (I bought a new pen for one of them to see if it'd work, but it didn't) the pressure won't work? It's been like this for at least two months now, and I really want to fix this but I can't find anything about it on the internet.
    I also keep getting this message that tells me that my tablet isn't working properly, I think, and that I'm supposed to reinstall the driver or restart the system. I have tried doing both and still nothing.
    If that helps my laptop is a vaio and my tablets are the bamboo pen & touch and the fun one.
    +Rep and +thanks for anyone who can help me fix this and also my eternal gratitude because seriously this has been driving me crazy. D:

    Hello! Could you please tell me if the problem is with a certain art program? For example, my tablet's pen pressure will not cooperate with some programs, like GIMP and Paint.Net no matter how many times I install/uninstall drivers.

    If you bought a new pen and it still doesn't work, it could honestly just be the tablet. How long have you had it? I had my Wacom Bamboo Fun Pen and Touch one for a while until it finally began to fail on me.

    Also, could you link the website you're downloading the drivers from? I've had the same problem on just about every tablet I've ever owned, and there will always be at least one time I download the wrong drivers.

    had trouble with mine in ps.
    What I did was open the program with the tablet stylus, not the mouse

    Honestly I doubt it's my tablet because I mean...one of them not working I can believe, but two?
    And the problem is with just about any program, like...I always use SAI but if I try to draw on paint or on ps or wherever it will still look shitty and shaky because of the lack of pressure. Again with both tablets, unfortunately. D:
    And I haven't had the pen and touch one for too long! I think a year now? But I didn't use it that often. I have had the fun one since 2009 but trust me it's in good shape...Plus I tried using them on another pc once and it worked with the pressure just fine...
    I actually installed the drivers with the cds that come with them, but at some point downloaded them from the official wacom site. :c

    I use a really old Wacom ET-0405-U and only recently have I started having driver issues, but not so much with pen pressure.

    I've been uninstalling the driver and reinstalling it and it seems to help.

    Maybe try uninstalling the tablet drivers 'and' the art programs, run an update on your computer, restart, and reinstall everything? I'm not very tech savvy, but sometimes I'll tinker around with thay sort of stuff and it seems like it helps.

    If you can't seem to get it to work, I would call the company, because their tech support is pretty helpful from my past experiences and will probably be able to tell you what's wrong. :3

    I've reinstalled it countless times before...thing is whenever I try to do that it says loading, right? But it stops at some point and it just stays there forever, you can leave the thing loading for hours and it still won't finish installing.
    I've tried reinstalling my programs too, boo. How would I go about updating my computer though? Not a very tech savvy person here either haha.
    But frankly I doubt I could call the companies? I bought both the tablets and the laptop on another country. :s

    This used to happen to me aaaaaaalllll the time and it drove me crazy. I always assumed it was the driver, but it actually turned out to be the cable. I assumed it was fine because it wasn't worn in any way, no wires visible and all that stuff, but when I bought a new cable, it worked perfectly. If updating drivers doesn't work, buy a new cable I got mine from Walmart (and it had several other connectors to go on the end for use with android phones etc, so it's an all-in-one kind of thing). Worth the money if you love to draw.
