Monitor as pen tablet

Q: Monitor as pen tablet

I watched a show where this graphics company was able to draw directly onto the monitor using a pen.
Can anybody please tell me exactly what type of screen this is? and how much does it usually go for?

A: Monitor as pen tablet

Google for touch screen monitors.

There are lots of brands, sizes and prices for these things.

Good luck

In my Windows 7 Professional's control panel I found a tool called "Tablet PC Settings." I opened it to see what it was. It reports that my HP w1907, which up to now I though was just a regular lcd monitor, can accept pen input.
If this is true and not some software glitch by the os, what drivers/software do I need to get it working? (FYI: My monitor did not come with a pen.)

See Attachment for screenshot of dialog where oddity is found.

Hey everyone,
I'm looking to replace an old PC DVR. Here's what I would like to have, is something like this available? A WMC based system for a DVR with a wireless touchscreen monitor. The would probably be used to schedule programs.
My current setup is a PC connected to my TV. Directv is plumbed as the input to my tuner card. We mostly watch the recorded content through an Xbox360(easy, and video quality is far superior). Any thoughts?

I've seen touch screen monitors, but nothing portable and/or wifi.

more likely to build a new HTPC and setup access via a tablet (ie: iPad or similar).

Hi Martin,

I don't think so few of the tabs that come with the mini HDMI ports as well are video out ports.

For this to be possible we would need video and audio in ports on the TAB. However, this doesn't seem to happen in near future due to lack of demand for a feature like this.

Getting a video through USB seems to be impractical task, but we don't know what would be possible in coming years. Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.

I have a Genius GPen 4500 USB graphics tablet (using the built-in Windows 7 driver), and would like to use it on my secondary monitor (which is 4:3, unlike my primary which is 16:9)

However, windows seems to have decided that the tablet is integrated into my primary monitor (according to "Tablet PC Settings" in the control panel - it shows "Pen Input Avaliable" for the "1. BENQ E2220HD" item and "No Pen or Touch...." for the "2. SyncMaster" item)

Running "Setup" from that window does not work, as the tablet still maps to the primary screen, and can't be used to click on the second screen.

Is there any way (even a registry hack) to change which monitor is used? Or to update the range for the tablet such that it maps to the second screen.

If it helps, the setup is a classic horizontal setup (1920x1080 on the left, 1280x1024 on the right)

P.S. Sorry if this has been asked/answered before, but both googling and a search of the forum failed, but I may not have been using the correct terms)

I have upgraded my X201 Tablet to Windows 10 32bit. As far as I can tell, everything is working, including the WACOM drivers and touchscreen.  Wireless has worked perfectly so far, not sure about Bluetooth as I don't use it. My only issue is that the buttons on the display do not work. The power button located on the display does work. I tried installing the Tablet Button Driver II and it will go through the install but the buttons do not work.  This is the download link: The document claims Windows 10 compatability and was Last Updated :08 Jun 2015. On inspection, all the files extracted are dated from 2012 and when trying to manually run the software Windows throws up an error that the software is not supported on this PC.   I removed and reinstalled and noted that the driver information page when running the installer does NOT have Windows 10 listed as a supported system. My assumption is that the driver that they have linked on the download page is NOT the most current driver and is infact the driver for Windows 7 from 2012. Does anyone know how to contact Lenovo to get the correct driver posted to the page, or know of an alternate source to try and find it?

I have a Yiynova tablet monitor and its been working fine for about a month. I recently tried to download the beta version of a NVIDIA GeForce update (bad idea) and had to reinstall a previous version. After that, things started to go south for my tablet.

I uninstalled and reinstalled the tablet driver, and tried to plug it in a different USB port and it came up with the same message.

Is there a step that I'm missing?

I have dual screen setup, and that's working fine, but the driver that senses the pen just isn't installing, even though I installed the driver program.

I appreciate any ideas on how to fix this.

I have an HP laptop and I have been running it with dual monitors. I finally decided to upgrade to Windows 7 and after I installed it I noticed that the built in monitor of my laptop looked strange and when I opened the display settings to change the screen resolution and set the external monitor as a separate monitor rather than a mirror I noticed that only one monitor was detected and it was the external one (Generic non-pnp monitor on standard VGA graphics adapter) and the built in monitor does NOT show up at all.

I've tried the detection button, in hopes that the computer would read the built in monitor and I could fix the problem. This did not help. I tried unplugging/replugging the external monitor to no avail. I tried restarting without the external monitor plugged in and it STILL reads the built in monitor as if it is the external one. Is there anyway to fix this? I have not tried re-installing the OS, not yet anyways.

Any suggestions ?

I am using a 22" screen for my primary screen and the laptop lid open for a secondary screen. The main screens resolution is 1680x1050, I can set it to anything I want and it's always using the full screen. The laptop screen on the other hand will only use the full screen if it's at 1400x1050 resolution (max for that screen, IBM Thinkpad T43). With the large 22" screen I have no trouble reading the screen at high resolutions, the screen is huge, with the little 14" screen though I have to strain to read the screen at 1400x1050.

The problem is when I set the laptop screen to anything lower than 1400x1050, it uses less of the screen. Preferrably I want it at 1280x1024 or 1024x768 (I dont know which I want yet as I can't see the freaking screen at that resolution). At 1280x1024 for instance the useable screen is just a box in the middle, so the "1280x1024" is still barely readable for me cause it's shrunk from full screen, plus it's just annoying only using a portion of the screen.

I have played with the ATI Control Center, the Thinkpad display settings and windows display settings and just cannot get this thing to go full screen at lower resolutions when docked and using the external monitor.

Anyway to resolve this?

So my question is: Has anyone experienced Windows XP on a tablet, and how does it work? Thank you.


A:XP on a tablet

The Tablet version of the OS is customized to offer Tablet-specific features such as using a stylus for input. Take away those customizations and you likely lose features.

While there are certainly differences between XP Home, Pro, and Tablet, the core is ultimately the same, and I doubt you'll see major improvements in stability by switching from one version of XP to another.

It's a bit suspect that you've swapped out the entire unit and still have the exact same problems. I'd either swap it again or move on and get a different Tablet.

Upon opening OneNote the error message appears asking if I want to send information to Microsoft about the error that keeps OneNote from running. In the detail information is a list of all the libraries OneNote needs. There is no easily discernable information regarding which, if any, of the libraries are missing.

Would it be worth while to hunt down these libraries to see what's missing?

Are there any other courses of action that may allow me to recover this functionality short of reinstalling the OS?

A thought: what I do if it were a Notebook or Desktop is would boot to a CD containing a program I purchased that lets me remove the password/s, doesn't show it. It might work on a tablet to plug in a portable CD/DVD drive if having a standard USB port or an OTG/OnTheGo micro USB to standard USB adapter.

Hey fellow techspotters, ive been dying to get my hands on the new tablets coming out this summer. I just cant decided on which one to burn my hard earned money on. So i would like to know your opinions and suggestions on which tablet would be best suited for a person like, well, us.

Heres my opinion: I love to modify, tweak and personalize my hardware and the software that runs on it. Right now the 3 contenders are the Archos 7 ( came out recently) the HP Slate and the Dell Streak. Both are out this summer, and i think all three are android compatible, but the Archos is only android 1.5 and even though the description on amazon says you can use the android market, it currently doesnt support it. So im most likely going to go with Dell or HP depending which one releases first and if it has android 2.2+ and the android market.

As far as I am aware, Microsoft are holding back the final look of the desktop version of Windows 8. That's according to CNet in any case. That said, they've had a lot to take on board the last few months feedback wise. I fear they have listened to very little of what customers are actually telling them.

Who then are Microsoft going to listen to? Their customers, or, the Widows 8 fanbois within Microsoft who are determined to ram this touchy feely one size fits all OS down everyones throats? It seems astonishing that Microsoft has taken the two disasters of Vista and Windows Phone and bundled both of them in to one operating system. Is this short sightedness, ideology or just plain stupidity from Microsoft? Time will tell, but I think it's already starting to look very bad.

Unfortunately for Microsoft, l think that my original statement "" is still valid. Windows 8 is a tablet OS, no business will bother with it [even Microsoft have admitted that], desktop users seem to overwhelmingly dislike it, and, to cap it all, Apple have already cornered the entire tablet market.

The question then remains, who are Microsoft trying to sell this odd hybrid to? Certainly not me. I've been using Windows 8 on a desktop for months now and it's not been the most fluid experience. When will Microsoft realise, it's not what's under the bonnet I'm unhappy with, it's the user interface on a desktop computer. ... Read more

I have an old CalComp serial tablet that wouldnít work anymore when I upgraded to PS7. Iím still trying to swing a good deal on one over on E-BAY. With dual monitors I need a bigger tablet than my old 6 X 8 anyway.

But when it worked the stylus options showed up in the options for various tools. If you donít have an option for whether the pressure yields flow, opacity or color with the airbrush for example then PS isnít recognizing the tablet.

Iím not familiar with the Aiptek, but you should have a toolbox under Start>Programs to set how you want it to work. You can use the absolute setting where the tablet corresponds to a point on the screen or the relative where it works like a mouse. You can program the buttons on the pen to right click or double left click. I had one of mine switch between absolute mode (WYSIWYG mode to Calcomp) and the relative mode. The relative mode was set for less motion to do finer work.

If it is completely installed it should work fine in PS without any settings. Moving the pen should move the cursor and the options for the pressures should show up when it detects a pressure sensitive pen.

Kinda hard to tell what the issue could be without knowing the error code(s). You could try and look up these codes on Google or Bing. Most of them are covered on Microsoft-Answers already. A possible reason could be that the store app itself needs an update. Launch the store app, tap on your profile picture and choose "downloads and updates". Now tap "check for updates" and see if an update for the store app comes up. If yes, install it and check if your issues still persist.

Which one is best for what I want? Not really bothered about the OS, just would like to general peoples thoughts.Click to expand...

Well as far as web browsing and youtube go I would say get the best priced one and not worry.

As for games and such I will say this, each library of games is getting similar but there are some differences between them so if both have the same things your looking for there then I would again default to the best priced one.

Last thing I will say is the screen is very important so based on that the ipad mini retina does have a better screen so if your after something very media centric then I would say if everything else before is met other than price if your willing to pay the extra the Ipad Mini Retina has a better screen and overall specs so it maybe the best option.

So in short I would say get the Ipad if price is of no concern because it has the more robust set for what your doing otherwise the Nexus is a better price alternative which will still be just fine!

This is actually for darkassain but I thought I'd ask everyone

I've used a lot of different laptops including Tablet PCs. What I'd really want to know, for those who decided to invest in owning one and using it on a daily basis, what's the appeal?

I can see myself using a touch screen on a desktop setup and doing the Minority Report stuff on my screen but why would one decide the jump from a normal laptop to a tablet?

I've read reviews about these twisting screened laptops with their stylus, there's a part of me that wants to understand the need for it.

I hope that you can share your thoughts.

A:Why use a Tablet PC?

Hello Nosferatux.

I believe Tablet gives you a few extras that a normal laptop won't. First off, its the touch screen. Not to mention HP XT2 and DELL XT which even have multi-touch.

Now IMO, the main (and probably the only) advantage of a tablet apart from the touchscreen , against a normal laptop, would be the option to fold the screen down, hold it in your arms and use it like a notepad, with its pen or your fingers, in jobs/places where this would be convenient in some way. Honestly, apart from the touch screen thingy, I see no other use or noticable difference. Then again, I might be missing something.

Q: Tablet

I want a digitising tablet for my pc windows xp computer, on a usb port, preferably wireless and A5. However, I already have one for a very old mac, and wondered if there was a way to adapt it for my pc. It has a plug which is similar to a PS/2 socket (about the same size) but with a bigger 'block' at the bottom and only four pins instead of five. Can I buy an adapter somewhere? If so, where? Or could I make one?

Hi, I just got a new PC, an Asus with Windows 7. I have a Wacom Graphire 4 tablet, and I've been having a bit of trouble with it. It works on all of my art programs expecially after I disabled the handwriting window. However, I'm an avid fan of picturechat, and my tablet doesn't seem to get along with that very well. I have the newest java and flash, and I downloaded the driver for this tablet edition specifically for Windows 7, but it still doesn't really like to get along with online drawing programs. I've tried it on both firefox and opera, and I've been messing with the tablet settings. I figured out that part of the reason was that click and hold was set as right click, which fixed part of the lag, but now when I draw it does something else. When I tap an area on the screen, a circle shows up, so now when I draw that shows up and makes the line I'm drawing suddenly stop. How can you disable this? I'm going to keep toying with the settings to see if I can figure it out.

I've recently got my hands into a tablet wich is running windows 7 ultimate
The thing is that I can't get the tablet features to work correctly, I mean, 2 things happen: when I go on and try to write something, lets say on the address bar or in word, I don't get the icon suggesting me to open the pen input thing, and, when I open the pen input manually, it doesn't get any transparent when I'm not focusing on it (very annoying cause the screen is quite small).
I've seen many videos on youtube so I know how should it look like....
Also, Aero works just fine, so I think that's not the problem...

My laptop took about 1 1/2 hrs. for the entire process, including download and install, and it works like a champ.  Would this indicate that my tablet may not be compatable?  Should I discontinue the download and keep 8.1?

Your tablet looks like that minimum RAM available. So it will be not work Windows 10 correctly. So it’s take too much time.

I do not get BSOD but just lately my fairly new Windows 8.1 Tablet has been freezing. I have to hold the power button for a while and re-boot. It has started to happen around the time of an MS update but I suspect more relevant is the fact that I have just installed Google Chrome and a Chromecast (which does work well). So far it has only happened when the Chromecast is in use. 
I also occassionally get Kernal Data Inpage Error (pdc.sp) with a message that the computer has a problem, is dealing with it and will restart automatically. However, the progress of this is stuck at 0% and it does not re-start so I have to press the power button.
Also, of possible relevance, is that I am very short of free storage space on my SSD despite many efforts to reduce demands on it (uninstalling apps, using a Memory Card with portable apps instead, storing on the Cloud, etc.) Despite this the Disk's free storage frequently drops to a critical level (I have gadgets which monitor it continuously).

I got my hands on a used (kinda old) tablet PC (Fujitsu C-500) that I was able to put WinXP on. It has side keys on it, like a number pad and other things like volume control, and brightness. These work fine, but I can't get the tablet to recognize that I am using the touchscreen itself, even though the other side keys are attached via the touchscreen. It didn't come with a stylus, and I have found a website online to purchase a replacement stylus, but they only sell them in a pack of 5.

First of all, will purchasing a new stylus enable me to use the touchpad itself? And second, is there a generic driver for XP that would allow me to use the stylus or other pointing device (such as a finger) as a "mouse"?

Ok, so i've finally gotten to a point where I can't stand not owning a tablet. I'm not yet prepared to drop more than $400, though. I was looking at a rooted Nook Color, but found the Archos 9 which runs Windows 7 (i'd love to have a win 7 tablet...but i'm willing to consider the 101 which runs android) but then came across the Notion Ink Adam. The problem...I can't find it ANYWHERE!!! Was this item pulled? Should I even be wanting a tablet that I can't even find? I know it had a rough start, but after having seen a few videos, it may be in my top list (literally as it is on the upper end of the money range, lol).

I've found the other tablets on ebay, but the Notion Ink is overpriced on there. A seller is selling the bottom line version ($375) for over $500! Finally found someone starting off below $200, but with 6 days left to go, I have a feeling it'll end up going over my budget.

Anyway, just wondering if anyone knows how to go about finding this Adam tablet. My mind still isn't made up, but i've got 2 days off from work, so plenty of time to think about it, lol. Thanks for any help.

Might not be out yet, but the Motorola Xoom will drop to $399 at Staples soon. I too would like Windows tablet but Windows 7 isn't really good on tablet and Windows 8 won't be out until next year for Tablets. They say end of the year but then how much would the tablet be? That's issue. Overcharging for Tablet's that cost anywhere from $60 and up.

If you live in the USA you can go to any CVS Drug Store or CVS 24HR Pharmacy and pickup a $99 buck tablet running 700MHz, Android OS 2.1 with 4GB IS (internal storage) plus 32GB ES (external storage) 256MB RAM, 7" HD with 720p HDMI port, 2x USB one Full and one mini port. With that you can connect a USB wireless mouse or combo. There is even 3GB support. This tablet is made by the old Craig Electronics well it made for them. The good thing about this tablet you can root it and get Google Market on it. Once you do that you can access any app for it.

Now the deal breaker if you have anyone you know who works for CVS you can get the tablet for $60 bucks. If not with the floating around 20 to 25% off coupon you can also get it for about $77 to $79. Still not a bad deal. You also have 90 day's to change your mind and get your money back but wait CVS gives you back more if you use their coupons and thus you can walk away with $22 bucks in a CVS Gift Card.

I purchased a 7" winbook running Windows 8.1 to play with and see what it could do. It's actually amazing and runs ms office and anything else I've thrown at it!

But there's one thing it lacks compared to ipads and Android tablets: the ability to enlarge the display by stretching 2 fingers on the desktop touchscreen. I know there is a magnifier tool but it is less convenient than spreading 2 fingers. Is there a utility I could use that could provide that capability?

Is there an app or download for one of the tablets, Ipad, Samsung or other that one can import an excel spread sheet to. We currently are using proposals forms from a lap top in an Excel format that we would like to transfer over to one of the handheld tablets.

The specific make and model of the tablet is critical to finding options. Only a few Android tablets have access to the entire Android Market, and the iPad uses the App Store.

However, if you have a complex Microsoft Office Excel spreadsheet, I doubt any other desktop software would work with it let alone a tablet application.

i installed windows 7 x86 yesterday (from scratch) and now i'm having a problem with my pen tablet, a genius g-pen m712.

i got the latest driver from geniusnet, hooked up the tablet, and immediately got the annoying control of the tablet pc input service (i gather i'm not the first to report that). i managed to disable the right click, but i still got the droplet effect on clicks, and i can't switch to mouse mode which is highly annoying as i usually work with my display extended to an external monitor.

so i read through some older threads and tried disabling the input service, but now it won't recognize the pen at all. the scroll/volume control buttons work, the tablet lights indicates it is hooked up and registering the pen's pressure. it's just not moving the cursor.

weird thing is, just now when i rebooted my computer, the first two seconds it seems to have registered some movement. now it's unresponsive again though. as if something that hadn't started up yet is now inhibiting the whole thing.

also, when i was still running vista, i had more control panel options, where i could adjust sensitivity, switch to mouse mode and stuff like that. i'm not finding those in 7.

any idea how to fix this?

thanks in advance

i also have a little wacom volito2 which is giving me pressure sensitivity problems (which i think it might be a pen problem). when i installed the driver for that, i got an extra tab in my control panel for pen tablet settings. it won't recognize the genius tablet though.

so in short, the problem is:
- with tablet pc input service ON i have visual feedback and can't switch to mouse mode
- with tablet pc input service OFF i can't move the pen except when in photoshop and still can't use mouse mode

PLEASE help. this is driving me and my right hand/wrist completely insane...

Im thinking about buying a tablet. Can anyone recommend what type to buy? Shoud I stick to apple or go for android or maybe a blackberry playbook?

A:Tablet Computers

The answer to that is going to depend on what ecosystem you're tied to (or if you're tied to one at all), and what are the important factors to you when considering a new tablet. You might want to list your 2 or 3 "must have" features in a tablet, what price range you're thinking about, and such. That'll probably get a lively discussion going .

I just got a Lenovo IBM x60t tablet pc with Ultimate x64.

By chance I was wondering if someone might know how to do this:

We offer services in our company that require a signature. I got this computer so that I could have customers sign the agreement electronically on the computer so that we could email them a copy instantly and not have to keep track of all the paperwork.

I've created a form that I can use in acrobat pro and word. It's a text input field on the form. But when I go to "fill out the form" or whatever, it only allows keyboard text input. Is there a drawing pad I can use or a specific signature line?

Hopefully someone knows how to do this!

A:Signatures with IBM tablet pc

Well, since it seems nobody knows how to do this, I show you what I've come up with. There are two good ways. I'm using microsoft infopath to create the form and insert an "ink picture control". this stores the signature as a .gif along with all the form data the customer fills out. the other way to create a form in acrobat and use the ink annotations toolbar to write on top of the pdf. there's no way to export the form data though.
hopefully this helps someone because it took me forever to get this going.

Windows 7 is running fine on my laptop, but the Tablet PC folder (in the Accessories folder) is empty. I'd like to be able to use (especially) the Math Input Panel. I haven't been able to figure out how to add it. Thanks.

A:how can I add the Tablet PC accessories?

Never mind -- I figured out how to do it. In case anyone wants to know: "Programs and Features," click "Turn Windows features on or off" in the upper left, and Tablet PC appears as an option.

Can you use files created on Win 10 in an Acer 500 tablet? I want to use an external drive

A:Android Tablet

I'm not sure what you are asking. Do you want to use your tablet as an external drive? Yes, that would work, but probably not the best method. You potentially could be shortening the life of your tablet, and they generally won't give you much space anyway.

If you want an external drive, pick one up. You can get a 500 GB very cheap now, and would give you many more times the space as a tablet.

I can't login to LINE due to UI colors being white on the background and foreground. I have tried the dark high contrast settings and the Windows Default theme and still get everything white so I can't see what the pop-up has after I enter my email and password on LINE.

How do I get the Windoes home key on the bottom middle of the screen to stay lit up? I use my computer a lot in the dark and it would be nice if that button would stay lit up all the time, not just when I press it.
