My Intuos3 tablet is currently out of commission. Or rather, it's driver is. Let me explain.

The tablet has not even been moved, much less damaged, since this problem started occurring a day or so ago. It is safe to say that it is a software issue. I am at my wits end, really, as I have tried everything under the sun and the driver still malfunctions. Half the time when I try to configure the tablet settings (because pressure sensitivity disappeared), it tells me that there is no driver, even if I have installed it not moments before. Other times, the tablet does not respond at all, no matter what USB port I am using. I also suspect USB foul-play, as the tablet responds to the pen (light flickers to green), but no action is displayed on screen.

I am running Vista, have updated, installed, de-installed and re-installed all related Wacom software, and have done plenty of reboots. Any thoughts, input or insights are highly appreciated. It is amazing how crippling malfunctioning software can be. *sadface*
