I realized my Lenovo thinkpad ordered from bestbuy does not have a stylus.  I simply thought it was a port until it was pointed out by a collegue. Anyways I've been getting run around from Lenovo tech support as well as best buy/ bestbuy.com I simply want to replace a pen that did not come with the computer.  I was on the phone with Best buy and Bestbuy.com separately for 45 minutes.  They could not solve it.  I don't want to make this a federal case.  I just want the part that did not come with the Laptop  Thanks Lenovo email tech support:RE: J Waters9:30 AM (3 hours ago) to me Good afternoon XXXX,I apologize but, this case states that if the machine did not come with the stylus and you purchased it directly from Lenovo, You will need to contact Lenovo Sales at 1.855.253.6686 to file a missing parts claim or to set up a return or exchange. If you did not by it from Lenovo, You will need to approach the 3rd party vendor you purchased it from to inquire about the stylus. We do not replace lost or missing parts here in technical support.Thank you for contacting Lenovo.

Also, it's not a lost part... it's a part that was never in the computer when I received... so I wouldn't define that as "lost or missing"

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 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.

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!

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

A:Thinkpad P40 - stylus with tilt?

Greetings!   I've managed to collect all the compatlble pens (Incuded Pen, Thinkpad Pen Pro, Bamboo Smart Pen) that I know of, and sadly, none appear to recognize tilt. Reports about the pen from CES seem to suggest that the feature isn't built into the pens yet.  Winbeta's review from CES.  Hopefully, the next iteration of the AES Wacom pen has all the things.

So I got my Thinkpad p40 a few days ago and so far it's been great, with just one problem. The small stylus, the one that's housed in the body of the laptop doesn't work. I'm not sure if the pen itself is defective, or if the charging port is. The separate full-sized pen, the Thinkpad Pen Pro (4X80H34887) functions just fine. I've left the laptop plugged in overnight multiple nights but to no avail, and there doesn't seem to be any 'pen charging driver' in the driver list, just indicators. I've tried various programs, including Lenovo's low battery indicator and the laptop stylus simply doesn't work at all. The Pen Pro works in all the same situations. Does anyone have suggestions? Thanks!

I have two problems i amd struggling to get support from Lenovo on..  1. When i connect my P40 Yoga to a 2nd Display and set my desktop to extended mode. When ever i right-click the 'context' menu that appears is not in the same location as where the stylus is. It appears to be offset based on the amount of total desktop space (becuase its extended) rather than just the actualy lenovo laptop screen. (which is the only screen thats compatible with the stylus). Any suggestions? 2. This one has only started happening recently. The Wacom service: Tablet Service for ISD Driver is constantly using 75% of my CPU and generally makes the device unusable. If i disable the service i am no longer able to use my stylus.. (which is the whole point for buying this laptop at $2000!). It continues to use 75% of my CPU no matter what i do (even when not using the stylus). It appears to use more and more memory over time as well.. Who should be fixing this Lenovo or Wacom?  ?

Hello,I had problems with OneNote win8-appa dn OneNote 2013 long before this happened: sometimes the touch screen function was completely shut dow and unusable but more often the pen/stylus completely stopped working.I found a workaround for this problem from the forums: installing a wacom driver and using a user-submitted simple batch-file to restart the driver and get rid of the cursor getting stuck in the upper left corner.Today at school I turned on my Helix, opened OneNote and tried to take notes but the pen did not work and there was no cursor; not even in the top left corner. Next thing I did I uninstalled the wacom driver and tried to reinstall it but all I get is "supported tablet was not found on the system" even though I restarted the system with the pen out of the dock. After that I tried all the current versions one after another and nothing helps.It also seems like there's no other drivers on my system as the pen and touch- properties in control panel yields no information or settings regarding the pen - only touch.I have no idea what to do, no idea what drivers to uninstall/reinstall. Can anyone help me or does anyone else have this same problem?

A:Thinkpad Helix 3698-6CG stylus/pen not working at all

Update: things I've done so far includeun- and reinstalling all related drivers I could find, checking if BIOS is up to date (it is), tried installing wacom drivers, reinstalled windows 8 pro, fully updated windows and all drivers, restarted again and again.There's no response from the pen. Nothing happens when I take it out of the silo and try to use it: clicking and writing both yield nothing. It's like it didn't even exist.As I try to open the pen settings like calibration from the control panel, these setting don't seem to be accessible at all: the pen-related tabs and options that used to be in "pen and touch" and "tablet pc settings" are nowhere to be found. It seems as though the whole hardware part has gone missing and the software with it. There's definitely no trace of any digitizer-related stuff.I tried to install the wacom drivers, all the versions I could find (of course one at a time and uninstalling one before installing another). The latest (7.1.1-16) like all the others can't detect any presence of wacom hardware, even if I remove the pen from the silo and restart the machine with or without it - I tried both ways just to be sure.Everything else works fine. I can use all touch-related actions no prob and I've had no problems with the keyboard.Please help, I have no idea what to do.Forgive me for any grammar mistakes and typos, both posts were made in a hurry.

Hi,I have a thinkpad yoga 370. I had to sent it in at some point, because the screenedges had some light problems. That being said, it worked fine after that. I added a screenprotector to the display and used it normally. I tried taking notes with the stylus and for the most part it worked. There is just one really annyoing problem.Some times (not everytime) I approach the screen with the stylus, it prematurely makes either a dot or erases something (without the button which is mapped to the eraser being pushed). This is really annoying because you keep erasing what you wrote. For me this sound like a hardware issue, right?

Hello. Thank you for taking the time to read this.I got a Lenovo Flex 2 15 a while ago. Over these three months I've tried to find information wether this laptop supports a stylus to draw with to begin with, and which models would those be.After searching in forums, sent pms to Lenovo support via Facebook and being utterly ignored, contacting support of styluses makers (Adonit for example) I always get the same copy pasted get X stylus for Ipad and X for *other lenovo models, like Yoga700, etc* which do not seem to list my model among them. Perhaps it is because of the year or because Lenovo Flex 2 is not being made anymore, which I noticed after getting it, sadly. So I ask once again... perhaps this time someone will know! Does the Lenovo Flex 2 15 support Wacom or any other brand styluses to draw on the screen with? If so, which is the model I should go for? Thank you again for any answer that you could provide.

I contacted support through web chat earlier and they informed me that if it says Lenovo Yoga 900, it should work. If it's marked for the Yoga 900s, would it still work?

Hi, I just got a Surface Pro 3 stylus from a friend, to use with my Lenovo Yoga 2. The stylus is designed for capacitive screen. So I assume it should works with the Lenovo Yoga 2 (At least I hope).I paired it both of them together (see screenshot). But I have to admit during the pairing, the bar stopped at like 10 % and then it said Paired (my other bluetooth devices goes up to 100% before it pairs).But it does not seems to works.I can't use the pen at all. My friend admitted it was not the orriginal pen as he lost it, but it still worked perfectly like the original. It is called Wireless Bluetooth 4.0 N-trig  Stylus Capacitive electromagnetic pen, he said. My bluetooth driver are updated to the latest available for the lenovo yoga pro. I really wish to be able to use this pen to draw.

Hey guys, I'm having some issues with pressure sensitivity. Does the Lenovo yoga 3 support pressure sensitivity?

A:Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro - Pressure Sensitivity - Stylus

Good day and welcome to the community.
 
The Yoga 3 Pro has a multipoint capacitive touch screen (vs an active digitizer).
 
If you need Wacom-style functionality (pressure levels, fine-point control, etc) you'll need a suitably equipped machine, such as a number of ThinkPad Yoga models, the ThinkPad Helix, or the ThinkPad Tablet 10.
 
Hope this helps to clarify.

Hi, March of  last year (2016) I bought the Lenovo Ideacentre AIO 700 24" mainly because the clerk at BestBuy told me I could draw right on the screen with a stylus and that was not just on Sketchbook Pro 7 (bundled in) but with any drawing program. I called Lenovo at that time, they said the same thing.  I put it away as I had projects to complete and now have it set up, bought a Wacom Intuos Pro Paper Edition, which is great, but that stylus doesn't work on Sketchbook, or anywhere on the screen. Neither does my old little Bamboo Tablet's stylus. Wacom says, Oh, sorry, try another maybe. Lenovo said, only Wacom, then they realized my warranty or whatever had expired two weeks ago and wouldn't continue the conversation, stating if I were to purchase a new year, they could talk to me further, otherwise no. Nothing works and I cannot find any info....so here I am.Is there the functionality of drawing on my screen with a stylus of any kind at all? I know many are available but Wacom's are not compatible, and though I love my desktop, every reason I got it and the new $549.  Wacom Intuos Pro Paper Edition (great product) and all I actually wish to do is draw with a stylus on this screen. No info online, maybe there's an expert here!

I have a Lenovo Yoga 720 13" and a Bamboo Ink Smart Stylus to use on it, both of which I got this week. For the most part they work together really well, but when the Yoga is in tablet mode and I rotate the orientation from landscape to portrait, it will no longer register the pen's signal. Even weirder, it won't register it after I flip it back to landscape, or even when it's back in laptop mode. The only way to use the stylus on it after it does this is to restart the laptop altogether. The Bluetooth still works; I can still open apps by clicking the end of the stylus. I just can't actually write anything with it. Is there an easy fix for this, some setting I can change that I'm missing? Or does this indicate a bigger problem? If anyone can shed some light on this, it'd be much appreciated.
