    I uninstalled my original hp (2710p) pen drivers and installed the latest original wacom drivers.
    I now have these problems:
    1) photoshop is still not pressure sensitive
    2) Windows Vista starts with an error message: "Tablet Service for consumer driver has stopped working" and when I close it it says "tablet driver is not running".
    The pen however works fine with other programs as artrage.

    Any advice? :|

    Update: photoshop now is not only "insensitive" to pressure, it also doesn't even detect any pen driver since it doesn't allow to select pressure sensitivity as a parameter. Maybe Vista just reinstalled the hp drivers by itself? :|

    Also when I open the wacon pen properties panel an error message appear "there is a problem with your pen driver" and "tablet driver not found".

    On the device manager list I see the following drivers:
    * HID compatible device (by microsoft 2006), this appears for 3 times isn't this strange?
    * Wacom serial pen tablet (by microsoft 2006)
    * Wacom HID digitizer (by microsoft 2006)
    * Wacom HID pen (by microsoft 2006)
    * Wacom virtual HID driver (by wacom 2007)

    Arent these too many???

    Why did you uninstall the original HP drivers ?

    I was told that in order to install the original wacom drivers one has to uninstall any previously installed ones.

    Because photoshop wasn't pressure sensitive with the hp drivers and I have seen people solving this problem when they installed the wacom drivers.

    Thank you adam, I have just tried your solution but it didn't solved the problem. Photoshop is still not pressure sensitive althought I didn't recieve the error messages (at least after the first reboot). The pen still works fine with some other applications as before (for example artrage).

    Well at least you're a bit closer! (smile)

    What version of Photoshop are you using?

    What Wacom drivers are showing in Device Manager now?

    Going from your list in the first post, I have the same except for no instance of "Wacom serial pen tablet" so I suggest removing that and seeing what it does.

    If that still doesn't work then suggest posting in the HP forum since could be Tablet specific.
