That should fix it.
I have motion m1300 tablet. I reinstalled everything from restore CD's, but pen does not work. the tablet not recognize the pen. Where can I download the pen driver for this computer.
Halp me pls.
Does the pen work at boot before windows loads? If not you have a hardware problem and not a driver problem.
Pe, does not work, when I start to boot the computer.
Well, from your problem description, you have a pen or digitizer problem. Do you have or have you tried another pen? If you have tried another pen and it does not work, you are at the point that you will need to return your M1300 to Motion for repair. Your testing would be done before the O/S loads. The pen is functional in your BIOS/setup screen.
Hopefully, it is only the pen.
I actually had my pen "break" two days ago. It just suddenly stopped working. I thought it was just Windows freezing. I figured out it was the pen because the mouse moved using the hartop keyboard and then, of course, I just tried another pen.
Of course Motion wanted us to "reload the drivers" but having already started using another pen, I told them to just replace it - which they are doing.
Hello, thank you for your suggestions.
However let me be more specific with my problem. I got this computer from a friend and the pen worked fine. But since the computer was just so full of spywre and junk I decided to do a complete restore and start fresh. After that the pen no longer worked, even after I used the drivers and utilities CD which installed all the drivers after the actual OS installation.
The interesting thing is when I loaded pen drivers Fujitsu Stylistic 4110 the cursor actually started responding to the pen! However it was innacurate to the point that it did not work. So this test kinda gave me an idea that its not simply a hard ware problem.
-The pen does not work in bios.
-Calibration does nothing
-I have plenty of other pens to try, none will work
-I have reloaded the OS about 3 times now in past few weeks of this problem.
-The link that Chris presented does not help me, it asks me if the pen is serial or usb? I tried both and none work.
I have called in to Motion Computing support and they have no clue. i really hate to think that this is a hardware problem because it Did work before the restore-- and as I said when I gave it a foreign driver the pen started at least responding somewhat.
Thank you again for your time.
Well, I do not have an M1300 to test pen function in BIOS. My M1400 pen works in the BIOS. I would think Motion can confirm what you should expect. As strange as it may sound, with the information I have, I say your digitizer is defective. The point being, the pen should work before the O/S loads, drivers therefore, are not a factor.
I checked my M1300, and the pen DOES work when in the BIOS.
Let me think this out, though. Technically, mice and pens and keyboards still have drivers, it's just that they are embedded in the BIOS now, and generic (not specific to any manufacturer.) I remember in the old days needing to load a mouse driver outside of the BIOS, before PS2 days. Unless I'm remembering things wrong.
So, if that's the case --- and correct me if I'm wrong --- then perhaps the disk cleanup that Odessit2 did may have corrupted a bios file of some kind. A BIOS re-flash may fix it, then.
Unless someone else says to try something else, Odessit, you may want to go to the Motion site, and download the latest BIOS flash for the M1300. Run WinPhlash to update the BIOS. WinPhlash is located here:
C:\Program Files\Phoenix Technologies Ltd\WinPhlash\WinPhlash.exe
If it isn't installed, the WinPhlash installation files should be here:
It will not hurt anything to flash the BIOS. Hopefully, it will solve the problem. I do, however, doubt ROM was damaged by anything odessit did.
Thanks for confirming the pen does work after entering setup.
You are correct, there are drivers to control peripherals, although in Read Only Memory.
