Tablet Driver, Photoshop Elements and Windows Photo Viewer suddenly not working?

Q: Tablet Driver, Photoshop Elements and Windows Photo Viewer suddenly not working?

Ahh, back again for more computer troubles. Apologies if this is in the wrong thread.

So, I'm really confused as to how three things have suddenly stopped working out of the blue. My tablet was working perfectly fine earlier, until I restarted my computer. The driver automatically crashes after start up, even after updating the driver. I have also noticed that Windows Photo Viewer and Adobe Photoshop Elements 8.0 also crash as soon as they're started up.

Any idea how I can fix these sudden problems? It's really frustrating that I can't draw, open photos, OR use Photoshop all of a sudden. Nothing was changed as far as I know for them to stop working.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

O.k. I had a problem a week ago when I managed to download a bunch of JUNK that came with something I wanted. The icons on my desktop would not open. Got that fixed. Now I go to open a .png and the Photo viewer will not open ...Just the message " COM Surrogate not working". I really don't even like the Photo Viewer as it will open something but I can't copy the graphic and get it out of the program.

Can this program be reinstalled? If so, and it works again will it be possible to copy and paste it into another program or onto my desktop?

This is a large order folks....

I load the program and get to the screen where you can choose Organiser or Editor. Organiser works fine but when I try to open the editor, after getting the little bar showing 'Building Contents and Effects', I get a message stating 'Photoshop Elements 13 Editor has stopped Working' A problem caused the program to stop working. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available'
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail.

Hi,
Today I deleted Norton antivirus and installed the comcast free version of McAfee anti virus. Hours later when I needed to use Elements it would start but then just sit there forever and never fully load. This happened time and again even after rebooting. Finally I uninstalled Elements and tried to reinstall it. But when I click on the install button it just sits there. I have disabled Mcafee and still no luck. I've rebooted a number of times and still no luck. I'm running XP Home with all the latest updates and a gig of memory. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Hello :

I have connected my Finepix AX300 camera to my computer via USB port.

My ASUS computer (with Windows 7 Home Premium) is recognizing the pictures via Windows Photo Viewer - I can bring up on screen my photos. However, when I clicked on 'File' I found that all the features (except delete and exit') were grayed out : when I clicked on 'copy' for example, nothing happened.

I also tried bringing up the photos with Irfanview, but again ran into a roadblock : I could see the primary folder for my Finepix AX300 camera, but was unable to access the subfolders containing the pictures.

Can anyone help me get access to my pictures with a view to copying and printing them?

Any assistance would be much appreciated.

Hey guys,

I've been facing problems lately. It seems that after few Windows 8.1 updates, my Photo Viewer has stopped working. I'm not sure what's up but it says "Windows Photo Viewer can't open this picture because either Photo Viewer doesn't support this file format, or you don't have the latest updates to Photo Viewer."

Here's a screenshot. I've set the red arrow as an example of two PNG files, one works fine while the other seems to be corrupted. I am not exactly sure what to do, it seems that saving images as PNG in Paint works just fine, but not when downloading files from the internet. And yes, Photo Viewer is set as default.

I've also run sfc/scannow but it says it did detect corrupted files but couldn't fix them.

In the Windows Update I can see lots of failed attempts to install/update some files, and I'm not sure if because of that, Photo Viewer doesn't work. One thing I also noticed that in Properties, the Photo Viewer icon is broken (not the usual one as always)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi everyone, I have a Lenovo X220 Tablet that has touch screen and pen. They suddenly stopped working today. The LCD screen still works pefectly fine, however. The touch screen is enabled on the touch settings. When I try to calibrate, it does not detect my finger or the pen. I also noticed that when I tried to reinstall the driver and it said "a supported tablet was not found on this system". I have the most recent bios. I am running Windows 7 that came with the laptop. All windows updates completed. Is it possible for the digitizer to be defective, but the LCD screen to work perfectly fine?Could it be just a ribbon failure?Which part would need to be replaced, if this is the case? Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

A:X220 tablet touch screen suddenly stopped working

Even though it looks like a single device, it is really 3 separate ones.  There is a basic panel.  There is a static discharge digitizer in the front to sense finger touches.  There is a second Wacom digitizer behind the panel to detect the pen.  Any of them can fail.  The wires in the cable can also crack.  Since both digitizers failed, I would first look in device manager to see if there could be a problem with a USB hub.  (digitizers both connect as USB devices.)  My next guess would be the cable.  Sorry I cannot be more definite.

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:http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds027627 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?

Hi -

I have Photoshop Elements 2 which I think is a great piece of software. One problem Iím having though is when I scan a full length picture, then enlarge the picture with the cropping feature it loses its sharpness and clarity when I print. I understand why this happens. I just would like to know if there is a way to restore the picture back to its original sharpness and clarity. I tried all the features suggested (changing pixel dimensions, resolution, document size, sharpness features, ect.) nothing seems to work. Is the problem because Elements 2 just does not have these features - and that I need to stepup to its big brother Photoshop 7 or am I missing something.

Thank you,
LauraD
 

A:Photoshop Elements 2 ?

In that particular case you would not get any improvement going to PS7. They both use bicubic as their best resample filter for resizing and I donít think there is any difference.

If you are scanning the photo at 300 PPI you are getting all of the image information on the photo. You could scan at a higher resolution but I donít think the resulting image would be any better than scanning at 300 PPI and resizing with bicubic. You might try scanning at 600 PPI to see how it comes out.

Your problem is that you donít have enough image information to enlarge a section of it after you crop. The limitation is in the information available on the print. If your scanner has a light in the lid and holders for film you might do a little better scanning the negatives if the scanner has an optical resolution of 1600 or higher.

A dedicated film scanner would give you a lot more pixels of information to work with, but they are pricey.
