Q: Aspire R 14 R5-471T, will a bluetooth stylus work ...

I just bought an R5-471T and I want to use it to write notes in class rather than type them. I know the type of touch screen panel it has does not allow for any active pens to work, but would a bluetooth stylus work?

A:Best stylus or pen for aspire R14(r3-471t)?

Go on Amazon.com and search for active stylus. I would look at the ones with the most reviews and the highest 5 star ratings percentage.Read the reviews from the people who purchased and used them.Anything else is just an opinion from one person or two.

After downloading the Windows 10 Anniversary Update to my R5-471T-51UN laptop, my Logitech M535 Bluetooth mouse will no longer re-connect after either a power-cycle of the mouse or a reboot of the laptop; I have to re-pair the mouse with the laptop every time I want to use it. Uninstalling and re-installing the most current available version of the Bluetooth driver has no effect. I suspect that there is a compatibility problem with the Bluetooth driver and the Anniversary Update because: - I didn't have this problem prior to the installation of the Anniversary Update- My Logitech mouse does not require its own driver- When I turn off the mouse with the Windows Bluetooth dialog open, the status goes from "Connected" to "Driver error" to "Paired" Would appreciate any additional troubleshooting advice that I might be overlooking, or (preferably) an estimate as to when a fixed Bluetooth driver will be made available.

I need to know if there is a stylus I can use which looks and feels quite like a pen, I don't like the compressible rubbery feel of some stylus, they are not smooth enough.

A:Which stylus should I use with my Inspiron 15r touch laptop? Will a 'Wacom Bamboo Stylus Feel' work with it?

Hi Shaurya,Welcome to Dell community.
Yes you can use stylus pen with this system.
15z has 15.6" LED-Backlit LCD Capacitive Multi-touch screen, so you can use Targus Stylus with this system which Dell recommends. For further help you can click on the below mentioned link:
http://bit.ly/VoK4ml 
The Wacom Bamboo Stylus Feel is the newest stylus from Wacom that a user in that forum said works well. The site, http://bit.ly/WSqVAQ  , says it's compatible with the Latitude 10. Technically, any of the non-battery (somehow powered wirelessly by the tablet) powered Wacom stylus should work.
Please reply me if you need any further help.

So the laptop i listed in the title i have runs at least twice as slow when charging compared to when on battary. I have only noticed this recently after about 1 and a half years. I play some small games like rocket league and i remmember when i got it this computer would only run it at 30 or less on all min settings. In the past month ive been experementing and i found out that now it runs at 60 when im on battary. I have tried this with many other games and same results. Now i have looked into my battary options and im not on any battary saver options and i looked into the advanced details and the cpu has a max of 100% power at all times. So im pretty sure it doesnt have to do with battary setttings. If anyone has a clue plz help! This problem probably was with the laptop when i bought it because i played games on it from the start and they were slow like rocket league.

So recently I need to get a Sony Tie Clip Microphone to work on my Acer Aspire R3-471T laptop, however, as there is only one audio jack, I do not know how to connect the microphone so the laptop identifies it as a microphone. I do recall very slightly a notification asking me which device Apple headphones where and maybe seeing a microphone option.  I cannot seem to find anyway to get the laptop to recognize the mic as a microphone and I would prefer not a purchase an audio apparatis if it can be avoided. Is there anyway to do this? or am I just spending time pulling out hair on a fruitless task?

as far as i know, windows 7 doesn't have a native USB3.0 support by the way on your laptop an USB 2.0 (the one not blu) is available and this, normally works under windows 7. if you still have issues, you could try to create a slipstream version with some embedded drivers, nLite will help you do it (it's free):https://www.ntlite.com/http://www.askvg.com/download-nlite-for-windows-7-windows-8-and-windows-8-1/

Hi, Looking to purchase the Aspire R5-471T.  However, want it to support Win10 Modern Standby (S0 Low Power Idle).  This is the modern variant of connected standby/instango and allows notifications to be recieved while the device is asleep and for Alarm apps to wake the laptop. Looked at one of the laptops today, and ran the command powercfg /a to check the supported sleep states.  Says that S0 low power idle is not supported by the firmware. I tested a number of current Skylake based laptops from HP and Toshiba, and appears none of them are currently supporting this sleep state. As I understand it, the hardware in this laptop should support this sleep state.  I understand that a bunch of OEMs may have disabled this mode because Windows 10 didn't support it properly.  However, Surface Pro 4 has recently had its sleep issues fixed, so assume this is now working in Windows 10. Would like to know if the R5-471T is capable of supporting this sleep mode, and if it is, is Acer is going to issue a firmware update to support the Modern Standly sleep state ?

When I have gone to use it now, the point of the pen registers on screen with both touching and hovering, but doesn't actually complete the action - so I can't write or use the mouse capabilities for it.

A:aspire r7-372t stylus buttons not working

I haven't bought a r7-372t yet although its on my short list.   One of the issues I had with the one I looked at at microcenter is the same problem you are having.   I believe its a synaptics digitizer so I tried a Dell Active Stylus (for synaptics) and the Acer stylus.  Both behaved the same way on the r7 in the store. Basically when you put the pen close to the screen you get a over cursor... but touching the pen to the screen doesn't draw in drawing apps or select anything like a tap... and the buttons have no effect.   So its recognizes that the pen is there but doesn't do anything with it.  I read somewhere that Acer might have a newer pen that is required for this model but I haven't seen anything concrete on that. I have noticed that a lot of PCs seem to have synaptics compatible screens but not fully implemented or included on their feature list.  For example... hold a synaptics pen up to a HP pavilion 13 2-in-1 screen and you will see the hover cursor then it will crash the video driver... every time.    So the hover cursor appearing doesn't necessarily mean its supported or fully implemented.  Although it would be a real shame if they took out that feature.   The easl screen is perfect for drawing.

I was reccomended somewhere in the community about the Acer Aspire Active stylus should work with the Aspire R5-571T (or R15). Everything downloaded properly, but when attempting to download the Setup Wizard for the driver that claims to work with devices with Windows 10 pre-installed (which, in my opinion should include the R15 considering the Aspire 13 as well as Switch 10 + 11 are compatible) it simply would prompt me to uninstall it as soon as the content was downloaded onto my computer. My only other option was to cancel, which would prompt an error message. My next step was to attempt to use Setup.exe file which prompted me to code the driver myself...? Is there anything that I can do about this? Whether it be copying and editing the code to work on this system, or just.. anything? Because I'm pretty upset considering it's 1080, it's brightness measures at 310 nits, and it apparently can display 109 percent of the sRGB spectrum, and the whole reason I bought this laptop is because I was told it would be perfect for art (I'm a student).  Any advice is appreciated

I have purchased two HP Active Stylus Pens, the first from Best Buy and the second from HP.com.  Unfortunately I have not been able to get either to work with my HP Pavillion 360 13" Windows 10 laptop. The symptoms are as follows:  I pop the battery into the pen and move the pen towards the screen and . . .  nothing.   Nothing happens.  This pen is also supposed to have the ability to magnetically attach to the laptop screen but that doesnt happen either.  I does not show up in the Bluetooth devices as well.   I took the pen into Best Buy and had their tech support guy look at it and their diagnosis was that it was a bad pen.  All they could do was refund my money as THEY NO LONGER SELL THAT PEN!  GRRR.  So I logged on to the HP site and chatted with one of their sales reps to confirm this pen is compatible with my PC before placing another order, however I am still getting exactly the same results, which are a BIG FAT NOTHING.  The PC does not recognize it  at all.  What is even more frustrating is that I cant even call anyone beause the tech support line does not recognize the pen's product code.  I hope someone call tell me what I am doing wrong because I do long this pen and would like to use it.  Please advise

I try to wave it over and drag it on the screen (the screen rotates) and I have no idea how to fix it at all. Do I download something and it will work again? Help! (I do not wish to download things that require money OR disks, for my laptop does not have a CD cartage thing)

Also, if it was a key I pressed on accident (I think I did... oops?), what key on the keyboard will reset it back to normal? Thanks!

I have been very happy with my Yoga 900 i7 with 64 bit system and 16GB of RAM. Until I discovered I cannot get anything work as a stylus when trying to do drawing and sketiching, and simple pen tracing in PhotoShop. I saw a Youtube video on the Wacom Pen (they did not say what model) that demonstrated it being used on a "ThinkPad Yoga." But will it work on the 900? Will ANY stylus workw the 900? Thanks! I saw one on Amazon with the Lenovo brand, saying "Not compaitible with the Yoga 900."   

A:Does ANY stylus work with the Yoga 900 for PhotoSh...

Good day.
 
The Yoga 900 works with capacitive pens only. Those are the type that mimic a fingertip. These might be ok for some Photoshop features, but not likely for fine-point control. In addition, there won't be pressure-level sensitivity, at least of the type that one gets with a Wacom-style digitizer / active pen.
 
Hope this helps to clarify.
Regards.

I have a HP Spectre x360 15t and my Active Stylus will not work. I have read a few articles stating that this is an issue with Windows 10. I spent some time updating the BIOS and the pen still does not work. Is there any driver or update coming out soon for this pen to function like it did with 8.1 on 10??

A:Hp Active Stylus Pen does not work with Windows 10 pro

I have been trying to get my to print. I have tried reinstalling it to get it to work. I am getting this
A communication error has occurred.
Check all cable connections and make sure all devices are on. If an operation check pattern is printing, reset the device by turning it off and on again. If the device was turned off during printing, cancel the print job. If the error still does not clear, see the manual's troubleshooting section to cancel the error.
I tried turning it off and on again. I can't find any info in the user manual to fix it. I don't know if I have my port setting correct because I can't find any info to tell me what port to use. I have a check by work offline also and the pause printing isn't checked.... still I can't print anything. Any suggestions? Thanks for your time God Bless.................

The Stylus Pro 7600 is now a really old printer, the last supported driver was for XP but it worked in Windows 7 and I believe to some extent in 8 although I never did try it.

It s a really good reliable large format printer though and very affordable in parts, ink and the second-hand purchase price.

However alas Windows 10 doesn't like it, I did the upgrade to 10 (and then the downgrade) from windows 7 but it will not see the driver it sees the device but calls it a USB high speed device or something like that and compatibility mode didn't seem to help.

So unless there is a clever work around and I'd love that to happen I'm stuck on Windows 7 for the duration.

Suggestions welcome.

A:Epson Stylus pro 7600 - Driver doesn't work

No cleverness here, and I don't have such a printer, but...

Have you tried the drivers for Vista?

Epson Stylus Pro 7600 - Photographic Dye Ink, Drivers & Downloads - Technical Support - Epson America, Inc.

These are for the dye-based version. I didn't look to see whether the Ultrachrome based one uses different drivers.

(There are also 32 bit Windows.) If they don't want to install, you could try right clicking on the installer and running the Troubleshoot Compatibility tool.

Good luck.

Like so many posters here, I am now a among the ranks of those complainants that active pen Stylus will NOT work with this model.  HP.  Is there a simple answer, a a clear declarative sentence, for this reported problem by many, many buyers? Frustrating things more is a call to tech support. 1st call:. " I can confirm no pen Stylus will work with your model.". Then, "Checking further literature, only three models of touchscreen HP computers are compatible with a stylus". Next call to tech support on a hunch no two answers will be same.  This time, "Oh, yes.  I can confirm all touchscreen models are compatible with pen sylus". Me:. Are you sure.  Second tech: "Yes, I assure you".  Me: "Can you explain why the first tech stated none are compatible then found documentation that only three were and mine was not one of them?" Answer:. "No, don't worry.  It is compatible".  Me: "When "Pen and Touch menu is accessed in control panel, only provision shosing as active is 'touch', not pen.  Does this mean drivers are needed or not activated unless stylus contacts the screen".  Answer, "Yes". Me: "Which is it".  Answer:. "Both".  "Let me transfer you to pre-sales which will have more details on your particular model".  Pre-sales:. "Why are you calling pre-sales", in father-to-idiot" lecture. Me:.

Alright guys, I have just refreshed my pc because I was having numerous problems with it and it turned out to be a bad stick of RAM. However, now I am having software issues.

Netflix will not play on Chrome. It will play on IE, but with the button artifacting problems. My computer will not pair via bluetooth with my phone. What would be your recommended course of action?

Hi,

Having a few problems with my bluetooth through windows 8 64 bit on an acer aspire v3-571. Wouldn't usually post on somewhere like here but I've tried everything I can think of to no avail. Main problems are with actually getting a bluetooth driver to install but if you have the time to read the rest would be much appreciated.

Just bought a new Airplay and bluetooth speaker, (cambridge audio minx air200) great for itunes but I also use spotify so the bluetooth connectivity would be really usefull as well. I've used a few other devices to connect via bluetooth and they work fine so no issue with the speaker. When I use my laptop to connect to the speaker via bluetooth though it either doesn't recognise the speaker or connects then states not connected after 5-10 secs.

I thought the only thing this could be is a bluetooth driver issue so I've downloaded a windows 8 bluetooth driver from softpedia Acer Aspire V3-571 Atheros Bluetooth Driver 8.0.0000.0206 for Windows 8 64 bit Free Download
I've extracted to the desktop yet when I try to run the file windows brings up the window to allow the program to make changes, I click yes and nothing happens.

Not sure what to do... Thanks if you've read through all that and I'd appreciate any help as otherwise it looks like my next step may have to be a trip to the computer shop which will be ?50 upwards

Hi, I have recently started using my Acer Aspire v5-571 laptop after leaving it inactive for a few months at least. Today I tried connecting my Beats Pill speaker to the laptop via Bluetooth but it hasn't ended well. I know it isn't a problem with the speaker as it works perfectly fine with my iPad. I have also updated Bluetooth drivers to version 8.0.1.314 which I got from the Acer website for this specific model laptop. When I open Bluetooth in the PC settings app it just says paired. I have clicked forget this device and tried pairing the devices again and it starts to connect. However, when I open the desktop, in the taskbar is an icon that looks like a hands free ear piece. It seems to be loading something and then the speaker goes back to the paired but not connected state that it was in before. Sometimes if I turn off Bluetooth and then turn back on, it will show a quick driver error message even though I have latest driver updates.

Any information on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi there I did a clean install of Windows 10 several months back. All is working perfectly fine. However, Bluetooth does not appear in Device Manager (including when hidden devices are shown):  This hasn't bothered me up to now, because I never had a requirement to use Bluetooth since I purchased this laptop back in 2012. However, now I do... 1)  Have tried installing the Atheros Bluetooth 8 and 8.1 drivers from Acer Support>Drivers & Manuals. Still no luck (FYI there are no Windows 10 drivers supported for V3-571) 2) Because of the above I tried installing the driver for V3-572 (some people have recommended elsewhere for other issues with Acer models not supported with W10 drivers) - unfortunately this did not work. I installed the below only.  All the above install did was update my wireless network adapter driver? Bluetooth still did not appear in device manager. Can anyone help? I must add that Bluetooth does not appear via the W10 menu either:  But greyed out Bluetooth option does appear via notifications>actions menu pop up (unable to activate, probably because there's no apparent driver according to device manager):  I know that that the obvious answer will be "Your Acer Aspire model is not supported with drivers for W10, therefore there may be some compatibility issues", but surely someone out there must have my model (or older), be using W10 and still be able to use Bluetooth? Many thanks...

hello, i'm not sure if i'm posting this in the right forum so I chose the category that seemed most relevant. I have an Acer Aspire One (D)257 netbook that I bought from Wal-Mart and i'm wondering if it has BlueTooth built into it by default. I'm not asking if it's BlueTooth-capable, i'm asking if my model contains an ACTUAL, PHYSICAL BT module internally. Because if it doesnt, then i will need to buy a BT usb chip that plugs into USB.

So if anyone here has my model and has BT working on it then please reply. I downloaded the Atheros BT driver for my model from the Acer site, and i've tried running the .exe files installed, but nothing ever happens. i cannot for the life of me figure out how to get this working without needing to buy an external chip, so i figure it would really help if i knew whether or not a BT module is present inside my netbook.

I have read several sites that say my model is BT capable and that it's an "optional" feature but beyond that i'm puzzled. I even called Acer, but couldnt get a clear answer on whether the module is present or how to get this working. I've also tried turning on my BT devices and then using the BT option under Control Panel\Hardware\Devices and Printers and then the "Add a device" option but Windows never finds anything.
