Lost pen input

    Question

  • Hi, I've installed Windows 8 on a Asus ep121. Everything was working well and then today, I could not use the pen input. I've rebooted, checked the system settings and restarted the TabletPC input service.

    Onenote is less useful now :(

    Anyways if anybody has an idea, please let me know.

    Thanks,

    Jason P.

  • Twinsoul,

    Since the manufacturers have not created drivers for Windows Developers Preview, I suggest you update to the most current Windows 7 driver.  You can download the most current drivers from the manufactures website http://www.asus.com/Eee/Eee_Pad/Eee_Slate_EP121/#download.  

    If that doesn't work, then try to install in compatibility mode to see if that resolves the problem.


    You can do this by:

    ·         Enter the Start screen

    ·         Move your mouse to the bottom left of the screen to expand the Charms section

    ·         Select Search

    ·         Type Compatibility

    ·         Click Settings in the right column

    ·         Click Run programs made for previous versions of Windows

    ·         Then follow the prompts and direct the troubleshooter to the installer for your computer's driver.


    Let us know if this helps.

  • Thanks Chris!

    Reinstalling the drivers in compatibility mode did the trick. Not sure what happen to lose the Pen Input but I'm glad to have it back.

    Thanks Again
