Default Pen tablet

I've recently started having problems with my Wacom tablet when I try to connect it with my laptop and use Photoshop. My tablet stops working after a certain amount of time; and I have to restart my computer to get it working again. I'm sure it's some sort of software or drivers problem since I've checked my hardware; and there doesn't seem to be any problem there.

Anybody have any ideas?

Please and thank you.

Hi there,

Whenever I work with controllers for sound production (midi controllers and the like) they seem to do something similiar to what you are asking about on occasion. I find that after awhile the USB ports don't carry the same voltage as they do when first plugged in at first.

Anyway when this happens to me I do two things: 1) if it has its own power source(rather than running from USB) I will pug it in and it starts to work. or 2) use a powered USB hub such as : USB Highspeed 7 Port Hub w/ AC Adapter (Silver): Electronics

/\/\/\/\/\ quick amazon search, not actually the one I use
