Fix 2: Install the correct latest Wacom pen driver

Your Wacom pen cannot work issue is probably due to an old, corrupted or missing Wacom pen driver.  You can easily fix it through updating the Wacom pen driver on your Windows.

You can update your Wacom pen drivers either manually or automatically. If you have no time, no patience or if your are a computer novice, we highly advise you use the driver tool to help you find and download the latest driver automatically — Driver Easy. With its help, you can say goodbye to driver headache and delays forever.

You can update your drivers automatically with either the FREE or the Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes just 2 clicks (and you get full support and a 30-day money back guarantee):

  1. Download and install Driver Easy.
  2. Run Driver Easy and click Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.
  3. Click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the  Pro version– you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All).
Note: You can do it for free if you like, but it’s partly manual.
  • Restart your computer to make the new driver to take effect. Then try to use your Wacom pen to see if it works fine.

  • Fix 3. Restart Wacom services 

    If neither method 1 nor method 2 helps you fix the error, try to restart your Wacom services.

    1. On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key  + R key together to open a Run box.
    2. Type services.msc in the box and press Enter to open the Services window.
    3. Scroll down on Services window, find and right-click on your Wacom service.

      Like Wacom Profession Service, Wacom Consumer Service and TabletServiceWacom.

      Then click Restart. If you cannot find Restart option, click Start instead.

    4. Check if you can use your pen now.
