Stylus for Inspiron 15-5568? Can somebody help me find the right stylus for this computer?

Q: Stylus for Inspiron 15-5568? Can somebody help me find the right stylus for this computer?

I bought an inspiron 15-5568 so that one of my tutors could use it as a tablet as well but the computer did not come with a stylus. I check the computer's specs and for the Pen and Touch category, it read "Touch support with 10 touch points". Is it possible to use an active stylus with this computer? I found that the dell's active stylus pen is compatible with the 5578 model, but is it compatible with the 5568?

Thanks for the help in advance!

Preferred Solution: Stylus for Inspiron 15-5568? Can somebody help me find the right stylus for this computer?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

No - this is a touchscreen model, not a Wacom-style digitizing tablet. You can use a capacitive stylus (example below) but if you're looking for a pressure-sensitive active screen, that's not what you have in this model.
You can use something like this:

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:
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.

Yoga thinkpad 20cd. I have the original stylus that came with the lap top as well as an aftermarket LIfebook stylus. The screen doesn't register either stylus. When i go to the windows pen calibration the stylus works fine. The calibration consists of tapping targets with the stylus pen. It is very accurate. Soon as i close the calibration window the stylus doesn't interact with the screen at all. I assume I must have changed some setting by accident or it occurred with an update. The stylus use to work a few months ago. I have tried messing with my display settings to remove the adaptive brightness at one point and may have selected a wrong setting. Thank you for any help provided.

I received a Dell Inspiron 2in1 laptop that can also be a tablet and I'm looking for the best option for a stylus. I have a regular one, but I am at college and would really like to be able to take notes on it so I am looking for a fine point pen stylus that works with the touchscreen on my laptop. Do you know which one would be the best option for me? Please let me know.

A:Stylus for Inspiron 2 in 1

We'd need the exact model number to tell you for certain, but most of these don't have a true digitizing screen - meaning the active type stylus you'd need to take notes won't work.   If this is an Inspiron 7359, that will be the case.
There ARE systems out there that do have true active digitizers, but the price floor is about $1K -- this is the domain of the Lenovo Yoga Pro, Think Pad Yoga, and Surface Pro 4.  Just about every system under $1K is a touchscreen tablet - not a true digitizing screen notebook.

When the latest Windows 10 Update came out, the Tips showed using a stylus to write and some other creative things. This isn't a normal stylus. I have looked all over for one that is compatible with Inspiron 15-7579 2-in1, and resembles what I am seeing.  I have yet to find it.
Any ideas?Thanks! ~ TL
(I posted this over over on the Alienware club, with no replies.Think it was the wrong place to post?)

A:Inspiron 15-7579 - Active stylus?

There isn't an active stylus (the type that supports pressure sensitivity) for this system.  For that you need a screen with an active digitizer -- of which there are not many in the 15" size class.
The Inspiron 7568 had that option but sold in a higher price class.
You can use a passive capacitive stylus on the system you have -- just don't expect it to perform the way an active stylus does.

I recently acquired a Dell Inspiron 11 3000 2-in-1.  It has a touch screen and I very much enjoy using it.  I wanted to begin taking handwritten notes on this laptop using a stylus to write like a pen.  So far, I have only found a stylus with a broad, soft rubber tip that will respond to the touch screen.  This is not satisfactory for trying to write like you would if using a pen and paper.  Obviously, my finger works as well, but that's not very accurate as well.  I was hoping someone on these forums could recommend an appropriate stylus to use with this product that would enable me to write like a pen.
I have already tried speaking to Dell agents both by phone and by online chat, and it was suggested to use a Dell Active Stylus.  I purchased this product and it did not work.  I will be returning that product of course.
Does anyone out there have a recommendation for a pen-like stylus that I can use with my Dell Inspiron 3000 2-in-1?  It does not matter if it is a Dell product or a non-Dell product.
Thanks in advance.

a regular rubber nub stylus will work on the dell 11 3000. There is no hardware inside the laptop that will make any active stylus work. and for some reason even the nub stylus doesn't always work but does most of the time.

I tutor and teach online, and would like to find a decent stylus to use with my Aspire touchscreen laptop. The rounded rubber tips on the regular ones just don't work very well. They skip and make it hard to write with precision. I will be using Adobe Connect and can share my screen during "class" sessions. I have pondered getting a digital tablet (Wacom or similar), but hoped to find a compatible stylus instead. If it helps, I teach math, so I need to be able to neatly write equations, draw diagrams, etc.

I have a Dell inspiron 15 7000 FHD (7558)  and I was wondering if the Dell active pen works with my device. Or what other stylus can I use??.
I bought the Adonit Jot Pro which is a passive pen, but it didn't work at all.

A:Any compatible stylus with Inspiron 15 7000 (7558)?

It depends on what you want from the system.  This is a touchscreen system - it's not a digitized-screen system, so any stylus will simply serve as a stand-in for your finger.  It's not going to add handwriting or drawing to the system -- for that you need something like a Surface Pro 4, Thinkpad Helix or X1 Tablet, or a Yoga Pro -- so far Dell hasn't entered that marketplace, and it's a market that starts near the $1K price point and rises quickly above it -- you're just not going to find a true tablet system under that price, largely due to the cost of a digitizing screen.
If you just need a simple stand-in for your finger touch to keep the screen clean, something like this will work:
If you're looking for the functionality of a digitizer, you have the wrong system.

I am an artist and would like to use the touchscreen with a stylus to sketch. Is there a stylus available that can do this? I cannot find it listed under accessories for this model.

A:Inspiron 15-5579 2-in-1 laptop, stylus pen compatibility?

If you don't see a stylus listed, the system has a touchscreen -- not a digitizer, which is what you need for full, pressure-sensitive pen support.
If you want full pen support, some of the Inspiron 15-7000 series models have it.  These are going to start in the $900 range -- not he mid-$600 range the 5000 series does.  The digitizing screen alone adds a couple of hundred dollars to the cost of the system - you're not going to find pen support much below $900-1,000 systems.

Just purchased a new 5578 2-in-1 laptop and now looking for compatible active stylus pens.
The Dell Active Stylus does not have this laptop listed as compatible...
Anyone has any recommendations?

A:Dell Inspiron 5578 Stylus support

You need a capacitive stylus (the type with a broad rubber tip) -- this is a touchscreen model, not a digitizing model.
If you need full active stylus support you need something like a Surface Pro or Lenovo ThinkPad or IdeaPad Yoga, Dell XPS 9365, etc.  -- there aren't many 15" systems so equipped because of the cost of such a screen.

Someone else posted this same exact problems.  The Dell response was to download the latest drivers.  I experienced the same problem as they did but I have more to add.
I'm trying to use the Dell Active Pen 556W.  The bluetooth connectivity works fine, Windows 10 sees it. But my touchpad does not recognize it.  When I download the drivers, as the last post suggested, it tells me "no suitable device was found on this system".  But wait, there's more.
Contacted Dell Warranty support.  They told me to return the pen and get another one.  But that's not the problem.
Took the laptop to Best Buy where we bought it.  They were stumped.  Here's the weird part that I can't figure out.  To isolate it, we took it from the Geek Squad table back to the computers for sale and matched it up with the 7579 that was on the floor.  It had a Bamboo Pen attached.  The Bamboo pen worked on their 7579...and it worked on my 7579!
But wait, there's more.  We took another Bamboo pen out of the box and paired it up.  It DIDN'T work on their laptop, and neither did it work on ours!  It was the same pen as the one that worked!  So we tried another model of the Bamboo Pen with the same non-working results.  Stumped the Geek Squad guy.
I wish we could have cut the cable on the pen that worked and brought it home.  That was his suggestion too.

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 recently purchased a Wacom Bamboo Ink Stylus from Best Buy when purchasing my new Dell Inspiron 17 7000 Series laptop based on their claim that it was compatible with this laptop.  However, I can get it to connect and open the windows ink workspace apps but I can't seem to get it to actually work as a pen on the touchscreen.  Is there something that I'm doing wrong or is it not actually compatible?  Any help/tips would be greatly appreciated.

A:Wacom Bamboo Ink Stylus and Dell Inspiron 17 7000 Series

This is a touchscreen notebook - not a true digitizing tablet.  You can use a capacitive stylus (these generally have a broad, soft rubber tip), but not a true active stylus - the ink features/pressure sensitivity that come with a true digitizing screen are not present on your system.
Very few 17" systems are going to have a true wacom (or equivalent) digitizer -- not many 15" ones do, either.  You will find much more choice in the 12-13" market - if you're looking for it from Dell, the only model you'll currently find is the XPS 13 9365.

My operating system is Vista Home Premium. I have an Epson Stylus CX 7400 all in one printer. I began to have problems with printing. There were large gaps missing in the print out. I tried cleaning,and aligning the print heads. None of it worked. I then tried uninstalling and found that I could not uninstall the printer. I have the Epson cd for the printer but do not see a way to uninstall only to install. I tried uninstalling from Start All programs and each time the dialogs said uninstall sucessful, but each time the Epson printer was still in the list of all programs. I tried uninstalling from control panel and kept going back and forth trying over and over to uninstall with no luck. I went to where the printer is listed in Windows and it read "deleting" in regard to the Epson CX 7400. I finally got rid of it there but still it shows up
