Spectre x360 stylus

Product Name: HP Spectre x360 Convertible
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have an HP Spectre x360 Convertible with Product Number K8P19LA#ABM.


I want to use it as a drawing and sketching tool.


I have read several reviews from other x360 owners and decided that my best option was to buy a Dell Active Pen PN556W to use. Similar qualities as the HP Active Pen (which are not sold on my country) but with better reviews.


I have had no opportunity to use my pen, as it is not recognized in any way by the screen.

I have also installed the Anniversary edition of Windows 10 with better Pen Support and it still doesn't recognizes my pen.


My configuration is:

Windows 10 Pro

Pen and Touch Support with 10 Touch Points

Re: Spectre x360 stylus



 Is Dell stylus support HP machines mentioned on its specs ? You are asking HP to support another vendor's product here. From my view:


  • No HP won't support other vendor's products unless HP does not have equivalent products.
  • Dell may be very happy for HP (or other competitors) to support its products, it will sell more and laughing to the bank.

Re: Spectre x360 stylus

Possibly a silly question, but the easiest thing to check... Is the battery in the stylus? Is it a new battery?

The stylus should just work, no installation or special software is required. The model number I purchased ended has a different model number, so it might be worth checking too, that you purchased the right stylus model. From memory, the model I purchased ended in AAGN.
