Hello,

I have a problem with the pen of my Gateway CX2620 Tablet PC. I felled it a few times. It continued to work for a long time after it had fallen. But after some time it began to work unproperly, it had a writing problem. I wasnít able to write fluently as before. Later on, the pen began not to click. As I move the pen upon the monitor, the cursor moves but does not click. I changed the pen settings, it didnít work. Computer programers to whom I consulted said that I was to reinstall the system. I formatted the computer and reinstalled the system by using the recovery cd. The result did not change. I have begun to think the probability that the pen is out of order.

I live in Turkey and there is not any Gateway service here. Have you encountered with such problem before? Is the problem stems from the pen?

Hi,
If it is the Finepoint pen then it has a battery in it. When the battery goes dead it no longer works. I do not believe it is user replaceable.

There is DEFINITELY A PEN IN THE CX2620 stylii. I just replaced mine with a AAAA battery. The old one (which is a AAAA size, you can find these inside 9-volt batteries) had acid buildup on its positive end and that is why the pen went inactive. There is a lot of debate over this pen problem and I guarantee 90% of the time it's related to the battery. I can do a clean replace on anybody's CX2620 pen/stylii with a fresh battery for $10. If interested email me at kevinteman@hotmail.com . You pay for shipping, your total about $17 or so. I have never done this before but I just replaced mine flawlessly so I can do others. I know there are a lot of dead stylii out there and people don't know what to do, took me a while to figure it out.

Thanks,
Kevin Teman
