Finepoint pen not recognized by Windows 7

    I have a Gateway CX200X tablet on which I just did a clean install of Windows
    7. As a result, the pen is completely disabled. Tablet features are enabled
    and there are various icons and menus indicating that to be the case but the
    screen does not recognize the pen at all. Windows update has tried and
    failed to download a driver; when I search for finepoint drivers, I end up
    with dead ends. Can anyone help me to get my tablet pen working again on
    Windows 7 or, in the alternative, how I would go about re-installing Vista,
    under which the pen worked fine.

  2. Has your machine a Wacom digitizer?
    If so, check for the latest drivers ob the Wacom website.

  4. I ran into nothing but grief until I downloaded the drivers for Vista and
    XP. Neither worked at first. Once I uninstalled an HID-compliant device and
    searched for new hardware, Windows 7 found the tablet.
