Troubleshoot pointer stuck in corner of screen


Normally the pointer should follow the movement of the pen. However sometimes it gets stuck in the corner of the screen. Usually I have seen this in the upper-left-hand corner but it could happen elsewhere.

It's unclear what causes this problem.

Basic things to try

Sometimes this clears up the problem.

  • Restarting the computer

  • Testing with another computer.

  • Reinstalling the driver

  • Installing the latest version of the driver.

Other things to try

  • Temporarily change the active area to only a portion of its default size. Then change to back to use the a larger area on the tablet.

    • 7P: This worked for me once

  • Change the resolution of your screen to a smaller resolution then back to the original resolution.

  • If you are using more than one monitor, switch between extend and duplicate modes for the desktop.

  • If you are using Microsoft Windows, then test with Windows PNP tablet drivers to see if the problem happens in that case.

  • If you have a pen display, it likely has a calibration feature. Start the and complete the calibration process to see if that addresses the issue.

If nothing works

Then do not hesitate to contact support.
