An old, missing or corrupted tablet driver on your Windows can also cause this problem. You can solve it through update your Wacom tablet driver.
There are two ways to update your tablet driver on your Windows: manually or automatically.
Manual driver update – You can update your Wacom tablet driver manually by going to the Wacom website, and searching for the most recent correct driver for your tablet. Be sure to choose only driver that is compatible with your variant of Windows 10.
Automatic driver update – If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update your video and monitor drivers manually, you can, instead, do it automatically with Driver Easy. Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct driver for your tablet, and your variant of Windows 10, and it will download and install them correctly:
1) Download and install Driver Easy.
2) Run Driver Easy and click Scan Now. 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3) Click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All).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.
4) After updating the driver, reboot your Windows 10 and see if you can draw on your tablet.
