Inspiron 15-7579 can't install Active Pen

Jump to solution

I can't install the driver for the PN556W, it says "a supported tablet was not found on the system". is the inspiron 7579 compatible? or any solution? I tried to install the older versions of the driver but didn't work too

Thank you for your message.



This system is compatible to work with an active stylus.



Complete all Windows update, reboot the computer.



Please try to update the driver from this link http://dell.to/2ybmLe1 



Is this stylus purchased with the computer or is it a separate purchase.



For my reference, please click on my Dell username & send a private message with the service tag, registered name & email address.

I am having the same problem as hsurget with my dell active pen and inspiron 15-7579. I have updated, rebooted and used the suggested link and still get the same message, "a supported tablet was not found on the system" I bought the pen separately directly from dell. paid $50+ for this pen sure would like to be able to use it.
