I just recently had to purchase a tablet pc for my college's tablet requirement, and I ended up getting the Gateway E-155C tablet. It came with a stylus that has a button on the side and an "eraser" tip on the end, with five replacement tips. However, if I try using it on the screen it doesn't act as a digital pen, instead, it only acts as a hunk of plastic that behaves the same as if I were using my finger.

Is this pen really an active pen or are the buttons just there to make me ask questions? I've already verified that the Tablet PC Input driver is working, so I think it's a problem with the pen.

Hi,
I suggest that you contact Gateway about a replacement stylus. The Gateway stylus have a battery that is not user replaceable and once it is dead, the stylus does not work.
