Hey. We need a stylus to work with my device. The stylus is needed with a thin tip. All I found on the net - HP Active Stylus. But it is not even for sale on the site HP. What should I do? Are there any other analogues are compatible with my Pavillion x2 10?

A:HP Active stylus

I replied to you. HP deleted my reply. I give up on HP now. The customer service here is beyond pathetic.  (Long story short: I asked which Active Pen I needed to purchase. The agent gave me links to printers, the HP India shop, the HP UK shop, and told me to talk to Best Buy. Still no idea what I need to buy. Certainly won't be an HP product now.)

Hi, I have struggled with this topic since the day I received my laptop.  But last night, on TV I saw a commercial for HP's Spectre 360 and the whole commercial was about using an active stylus.   I grew increasingly furious.  I have been told (after buying the laptop from HP) that my model does not support using a stylus--although when I bought it I was told that it was compatible. Is there any chance that a fix will ever be provided?  I have the HP Spectre x360 - 13t-4200 CTO Thanks, Brett

I am a college student and am looking for a fine tip stylus to take notes with. I find the average stylus with the rubber ball tip to be difficult to write with, as the tip is kind of bulky. I just purchased my R-15 this week and am wondering if there's an active stylus that would be compatible with the touch display.

If YES, would I be able to effectively draw / write using this Stylus.
If NO, please suggest Styli that works best with this laptop.

I really need help with this because I use my computer and stylus for class.  For the last week, my HP Active Stylus has not worked with my HP Spectre x360. The touch screen works, I've updated everything based on what the HP support assistant said, I have replaced the battery in the pen, and my computer still does not recognize the pen at all. I've been searching other messages for help but I can't find anything. So someone please tell me what to do to get my pen working on my computer again. Thank you

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 bought a Dell Active Stylus for my HP Spectre x360 13 inch model because of the generally better reviews than the HP Active pen. When the pen first arrived I had some trouble using it but it started working just fine after about 10 minutes of struggle. I used it two times after that without any trouble. But a week after that when I tried again, it just stopped working. The pen is not recognized by my laptop at all.For the 15 inch model, there is a 'Touchscreen Controller Firmware Update' available on the HP website that says ' Provides active pen support'. But no similar firmware update available for 13 inch model.I am not even sure what happened here since everything was working fine and now it's not. A firmware update would be a probable way to fix it.Any ideas?

I received my HP Spectre x360 - 13t-4200 CTO one week ago as well as a new HP Active Stylus.  I purchased both directly from HP.  I have tried four times with tech support to help me get the stylus to work.  Despite being assured that the stylus in indeed compatible with this laptop, they have not gotten it to work. The only solution they have come up with is to reset the computer to factory settings wiping out everything I have spent hours doing to migrate to this new laptop.  In asking them what doing the reset will resolve, they do not know, but that is the fallback answer.  I have received so much conflicting and silly information from tech support staff who actually are not famililar at all with the problem.  They have updated the Intel video drivers and attempted to install firmware for the 15" Spectre but still no success. Does anybody know the steps to getting the stylus setup? Thanks very much.

I currently own the HP x360 and I have been searching the internet for an active stylus that will work on my computer that has palm rejection.  I first ordered the Dell Active Pen PN556W because I read online it was better than the HP Active Stylus.  I had to send it back though because it would not work with my computer.  The customer service rep that sold me the stylus said it would work with my computer but later when I called back, I discovered it only works with Dell computers. I then picked up the Wacom Bamboo Omni from Best Buy.  The stylus works but it doesn't have the features I want such as palm rejection and pressure sensitivity.  I am also having a problem when the stylus is not picking up all the lines I write.  It said on the box it was for iPhones and Androids so that may be the reason why it doesn't work well with my computer.  I am not faulting the pen for that issue. I finally ordered the HP Active Stylus.  I received the stylus today and  I am having issues with it.  The tip of the stylus does not write on my screen, but I am able to write on the screen with the butt of the stylus.  I called support about this issue and they told me that I could either pay for support or send the stylus back.   I tried calling to send the stylus back and the line was closed.  I don't like HP's business practices, so I will not be buying another product from them again.  It is ridiculous&nbs...

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

Hello, I just bought new Inspiron 7359 with Active Stylus because "SALES REP SAYS IT IS COMPATIBLE WITH ANY DELL COMPUTER WITH TOUCH SCREEN."
These screenshots are the proof of chatting with customer rep. ( Apparently, I do not have original conversation, so I chat with other reps again)


 I was really exited about active stylus because I saw this review: 

Apparently, it is not working at all.
First, I though I received the active stylus, which is dead on arrive.
So, I went to Bestbuy with this stylus. It worked fine with Venue 11 and 8. (NOT INSPIRON SERIES)
Also, my device manager does not have "HID COMPLIANT TOUCH PEN" or some digitizer drivers too.

Of course, I talked to technical support rep, and she told me that my computer is INCOMPATIBLE with the active stylus. ( I do not understand how this guy also said inspiron 13 7000 is compatiable. Link to the forum: http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3518/t/19614567 

Does anybody have exactly same problem with me?
How did you solve it?
Should I just talked to rep to return this?
I am very disappointed with Dell.

A:Active stylus is not working for Inspiron 13 7359?

Exactly the same problem here, watched the same review, read the same forum post and even confirmed compatibility in Dell Chat! Also spoke to Tech who says it is incompatible and advised to contact Customer Care, so I am also unresolved atm.
Really needed a decent pen for Photoshop use, so yeah, I'm a little disappointed too and would like a solution.

I have the ENVY x360 model m6-aq103dx. I bought it because I was told it is compatible with the HP active PEN. I bought the pen and tried it, it didn't work. I called HP for the TENTH time to ask about the compatibility and set up. I was told the active STYLUS would work, so I bought the stylus. It doesn't work either. The packages list which computers the pen and stylus are compatible with; none of which list the ENVY x360. I would understand if the HP "techs" had told me that my computer is not compatible but instead they say "it may be if it has the right digitizers/driver/capability/etc." So do I need a different computer or is there a way to make this one communicate with either of the writing tools I have bought??

Hello, I've been using the Dell Active Stylus (750-AAGN) with my HP Spectre x360 for the past few months and it had been working great.  Recently, the stylus stopped working, despite having new batteries in.  I changed the batteries and still it did not work.  It was the most bizzare thing, as it literally just cut out while I was writing and did not show any signs that it was defective beforehand. On top of that, I checked my laptop with an old Active Stylus that my laptop had always been able to recognize, but could not write with it because of a faulty tip on it, and my laptop did not recognize that pen as well.  This leads me to believe that there is something wrong with my laptop (hopefully I am wrong about that). My laptop is fully updated and I checked for driver updates on the HP page for my laptop pertaining to stylus, but could not find something.  PLZ HELP.

Hi all,
I'm on the hunt for a cheap as poss Windows 10 tablet that supports an active stylus for a friend who wants to run the StaffPad app.
Size and specs are pretty unimportant, other than the ability to run that specific app, so the active stylus is the only real requirement.
Does anyone have any recommendations?
Cheers in advance!

A:Recommend a cheap Windows tablet supporting active stylus?

The surface 3 may work for you. Refurbished units can be had on ebay for $350-400, but I guess it really depends on how cheap 'cheap' means.

Hi all,

I've been holding out for years now and I still can't believe that there aren't more or any manufacturers making good active Bluetooth stylus options for Windows systems.

I'm referring to the likes of the Adonit Pixel, Ink & Slide, or Apple Pencil, which use Bluetooth to relay pressure sensitivity and other data to your system.

What's the bottleneck currently with Windows? Or is it purely lack of interest in the market, where everyone seems to gravitate towards iPads for this sort of thing?

Hi all,

I recently purchased a Toshiba Satellite Click 10 tablet which runs Windows 10 home. I am looking to purchase a fine point stylus with USB charging capability (similar to this one Amazon.com: Stylus Pen, BoxWaveŽ [AccuPoint Active Stylus] Electronic Stylus with Ultra Fine Tip for Smartphones and Tablets - Jet Black: Electronics).

I don't need pressure sensitivity, it is for making very simple diagrams and highlighting text in some applications. It is an item I envisage using maybe once or twice a week. I don't want one that has a plastic disk on the end.

I noticed quite a few have a battery that only last 12 hours so looking for something which is rechargeable.

My budget is "as little as possible" but could realistically extend to the ~US$50 mark.

Does anyone have experience with a stylus that they can recommend?

Any thoughts/suggestions greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

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.

Hi,
I've been fighting with some sort of redirect virus. Checked my computer with Malwarebates in Safe MOde, Normal Mode, etc. It did find some viruses but removed them and nothing is present anymore. I also checked my comp with BitDefender online scanner, SuperAntiSpyware, HijackTHis. They don't find any viruses. Computer works fast, although aftre all this checking and removal I found that sometimes when I click two windows too fast it locks and I have to reboot it by reset button.
Now the annoying part is that when I do Google search it still redirects me to various random sites. I also found that when I disable active scripting it does not do that, but then I cannot view YOuTube movies, etc.
Is ther a way to analyze and search for scripts that cause this. I assume it's just some stupid script that gets activated when I'm on line, because none of the AV programs I use finds any viruses anymore.
Any help would be appreciated
Thanks

A:Google redirect? No viruses found but active when active scripting enabled

Could you please post the log files from all the programs you ran? (MBAM and SUPERantispyware) Do NOT post the Hijackthis log.

I had an external HDD put in as an external HDD, but for some reason it is marked as active (when connected with my normal HDDs windows will not boot), can I make it inactive WITHOUT loosing all the data (It has only my movie collection ripped from DVD on it) nothing else. I only found out the other day when I replaced my PSU with a new one, and windows would not boot until I disconnected it. (after having it connected without a problem for about 2 years).

A:Make an Active drive non-active

In a standard Windows PC, the active partition would be C, or System Reserved if you have that partition. Do you have both of those partitions and is either of them marked "active"?

The active flag has nothing to do with data.

Hi

We have three PCs connected on a network. One is dual boot with Win7 and Win10 (very recently sorted with help from Gregrocker) whilst the other two are both Win7 only with no System Reserved partition. What I want to do is to have both latter PCs with a System Reserved partition and remove the boot files from the OS partition. I know most people seem to want to go the other way but I believe there may be advantages when the time comes to remove Win7 and use Win10 only.

I've been going through the motions of creating a System Reserved partition of size around 100MB (without actually doing it - I can't use Bitlocker and I use TrueImage to backup/restore). However, it goes a bit further than just creating the partition as I have to get the boot files into it. I believe I have to mark the partition as active which would mean the OS partition would become inactive. I would then have to do three repair installs to get the boot files into the System Reserved partition.

I would appreciate it if someone would confirm this or put me right where my thinking is in error. I look forward to hearing from someone on this.

Thanks
Tracey

I'd be curious to know what you think the advantages to this would be "when the time comes to remove Win7 and use Win10 only".

You appear to be on the right track if you want to go through with it, although I can't recall anyone else who wanted to do this. You might investigate the EasyBCD tutorial on this site which is used to copy boot files---typically in the other direction as you mention. I'm not positive, but I'd assume it could be used to copy them in the direction you prefer.

This is a lesson that the people who are making printers are in the money business and selling printers is just a means to that end. I, too, have an Epson, a Stylus Color 960. You cannot print black unless all colors are sufficiently full to print full color, whether you need color or not.

I contacted Epson years ago about this and that was their answer.

Quiet mode has always been slower on all the printers I've seen.
