Question

Help with Huion K58 Graphics Tablet. repeatedly stops workin

Sep 11, 2013 10:36AM PDT

Hi,

I recently (less than a week ago) purchased a Huion K58 graphics (or Pen) tablet. It's one of those tablets that is usually used for drawing, handwriting on a PC etc...

The problem I am having with it is that, while I'm working with it, it will all of a sudden stop working and every time it does that I have to spend about half an hour to an hour uninstalling and re-installing the drivers; unplugging and re-plugging the tablet; changing the USB port; restarting the PC etc... It is really annoying.

Sometimes it will work fine at night and when I go to bed and wake up the next morning, I find out that it doesn't work and I have to go through the same process to fix it.

I tried using the drivers that come with the CD, I tried downloading the latest drivers from their website; I even tried using it without a driver (it works, because windows 7 apparently can recognize it, but some of the features are unavailable -like pressure sensitivity), and it still keeps doing the same thing.

When it's working, working the tablet seems to be doing fine and I love it but when it's not it really pisses me off.

If anyone has some insight of how to permanently solve this problem, please help! I think it is a software/driver issue, because I read many people had the same problems when they first bought tablets from this company.

Thanks in advance.
JM

Try a Wacom next time.

Seems to be doing fine now.

I emailed the company and they suggested I try a different driver, and since then it seems to be doing fine.

I got this one instead of a wacom because of the price and it's capabilities. For a lower price this tablet has more features than the regular Wacoms especially with the limited budget available to me.
