    Brand is Elecom, price was ¥2.490 so let's say $25 and I got it at EdyOn in Okinawa. Google goggles should be able to find a place close to you.

    I also tried disabling power management on the 12cHID for the pen.
    Did not try both, but someone else tried both and the digitizer
    still failed.

    I did not download a new screen rotation driver if that helps your
    experiment.

    My digitizer progressively got worse and harder to reenable.
    Finally had to disable both 12cHID drivers and force restart.

    I sent my unit for repair, have not received it back yet.

    When the pen worked, it was great to have such a small device to write with
    and that would run all my (old) Windows XP programs!

    I2C = Inter-Integrated Circuit (it's a bus)

    HID = Human Input Device ( JIC someone asks ;-)

    I'm going to put another plug for TouchMe....just search the Microsoft Store....It's really cool, and the latest build seems to work very well with our devices.

    My tablet ran for 15 days without shutting down windows, sleeping it only. Today is the first day I had to shut it down and restart it. So far, so good.

    Hello, I am a newbie with the AVNT8 and this site. I have tried searching for my issue but no luck so far and I am not sure if this is the right place to ask so please forgive my ignorance.

    I am having trouble with my touch screen not responding to touch. Sometimes it will only respond to the pen! This happens randomly and I am sure it is something I am doing. It is frustrating.

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    Picked up one of these for airplane productivity: Amazon.com: Targus Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard for Tablets - iPad 2, the New iPad, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy AKB33US (Black): Electronics

    I may upgrade to the really nice Logitech one for $80 at some point. I was really just looking for the best for the lowest price to get me by for now. The Targus is up to $16 now, but mine was $13 shipped on Prime. :D Basically it's a plastic Apple BT keyboard. Includes Energizer batteries so it's ready to go. Honestly, it feels as roomy as my 14" laptop keyboard, sans a column of nav keys; I'm right at home.

    If you do get an Apple-esque keyboard, I recommend KeyTweak as well if it's the only keyboard you have. You can use it to swap Delete/Backspace back to normal. (UAWKS is also mentioned on the net, but this messed with everything *except* BS/Del.) KeyTweak is just a GUI for hardcoding the appropriate registry changes, so it's very low-level and "just works" without software overhead. Also, Fn+F1 = Search (or Find for some programs) and Fn+F10-12 = Volume controls for this keyboard, which is nice.

    Anyway, it's a little wider than the usual mini keyboard at ~11.5". But again, it took me zero adjustment to get used to. Still portable though and perfect cheap solution for the road if you can score one for as little as I did. Definitely comfy enough that I figure I'll take the keyboard for few day trips instead of lugging the laptop along! :thumbsup:

    Does anyone use ink-to-text on their OneNote notes? Just out of curiosity...
