So I was just gifted a new laptop, a Dell Inspiron 2-in-1 13-7375 and they also gave me a Wacom bamboo ink stylus. But it won't work. I have updated windows and everything and even tried changing the mode of the pen. The laptop is running Windows 10 (1709, Build 16299.192). All help is much appreciated! Thank you!
This model has a touchscreen - it's not compatible with an active pen such as the Wacom (or Dell's Active Stylus).
If you want to use a pressure-sensitive pen, you'll need a different system - make sure the "pen compatible" icon appears for the model you want, and that it arrives with the same sticker on it.
Yes, one of those will work - just realize these are limited in functionality. They'll do everything your finger can - but nothing it cannot do.
If you're looking at writing extensively on the screen, sketching and drawing - this is the wrong system for that. These are available - they'll start nearer $1,000 than the price that was paid for this one (which was a few hundred cheaper).
I had a similar bug but after updating drivers the error disappeared. But that's not the only problem for college students. I myself struggle with some writing home tasks. I found a review in one writing service <Non-public info removed> recently. I hope it'll help me with it.
