    We have just to wait.
    And you will perhaps admit later that we were right.
    We all thought that it was a software reason.
    But you are right, at present time, nobody knows concerning your case.

    I think there's a bevy of reasons that the pen stops working(ie new Feelit driver, virtual memory & physical damage due to terrible build quality).

    For people who can't get their pen back even from a fresh install, it's an unavoidable hardware problem. That's for certain. But I don't believe it's always the case.

    Probably not always, but it seems for the vast majority of cases (I say this from having read carefully trough the ~32 users post histories to compile my statistics thread) the symptoms and end result are the same. Undoubtedly there will be exceptions though.

    I think we all want o believe it is a software problem because that is something we are able too solve. If you are a long time Windows user you have probably edited .INI .SYS .CFG to resolve some issue in your day, then moved on to editing the Registry in later versions. You have some confidence in solving this situation, so that is where you start looking.

    Now we only have to wait for SAM 2013 and it will be official.

    This has gotta be the most reliable Self-Destruct hardware ever created...

    I am on day 18 after my unit was repaired.
    However, I am only using about half as much,
    because I lost my mind & bought a 2nd unit.

    So far it has not broke,yet...stay tuned

    It is acting strangely for a hardware issue. If something breaks, how can it be unbroken again after de-installing a driver and rebooting? On the other hand, it's acting weirdly as a software issue as well. It's very difficult to reproduce.

    If it's a hardware issue, I'd say it's in some memory module. It works perfectly, until something gets written in a faulty address. De-installing the driver would clear it from that faulty address and install it in a working address. But if you're unlucky, it keeps on getting installed in that faulty address and thus it won't come back again. Or something like that...
