Stylus pen for HP Envy x360 Convertible laptop

HP Recommended
Hp Envy x360 13-ar0501sa
Microsoft Windows Server 2019

I recently bought a HP Envy x360 Convertible laptop (13-ar0501sa), it did not come with a stylus pen however you can buy one and connect it via Bluetooth. I bought an active HP stylus pen and connected it to my laptop but it does not work since it is not compatible. What pen is compatible with my laptop?

@Kashma_99 I suggest you check the compatibility list for the stylus on HP x360? Click here, if you haven't.

The compatibility tables are updated regularly, so if you recently purchased a new touch screen computer that you think should be listed, check back for updates.

  • Older PCs are not compatible with newer pens, so older PCs will not be listed in the table.

  • If your model is not listed but features a touch screen, it is still compatible with a passive stylus.

  • Passive styluses do not require batteries, do not have any configurable options, and do not use specific pen software.

While you check that out, I've taken the liberty of listing out the details you need to identify the accurate part since its not on the compatible parts list from the above link:

 

I suggest you get yourself a passive stylus (also known as capacitive and inductive stylus) functions the same as your finger on the screen. Passive styluses do not require batteries, do not have any configurable options, and do not have specific pen software. Passive styluses work on any touch screen device.

 

Also, There are no specific issues with stylus as off now.

HP envy x360 model 13 - ar0501sa

 

I've looked through your customer questions, searched the data base, and nothing is clear.

 

Please give a simple answer:

 

Which HP (or alternative supplier) stylus pen works with this lap top?

 

I have a surface pro pen which I can link to the computer but it isnt recognised.  I dont want to buy any more pens that will not work

 

Thanks

@adderw Alright, let me clarify: There doesn't seem to be an active stylus compatible with your device as per the details I mentioned earlier, 

Please go ahead and get a passive stylus of any brand and it should work just fine.

 

I hope that helps!

DearRiddle_Decipher, 

I have a similar problem and am confused about pen compatibility:

My laptop, x360 13-ar0501sa, is not listed as supporting any active pen here https://support.hp.com/gb-en/document/c05166879

However, 

1) This page https://store.hp.com/UKStore/Merch/Product.aspx?id=1MR94AA&opt=UUF&sel=ACC does list my laptop model as compatible with the HP Pen

2) in my task manager, I see HP Tilt Pen software running in the background and affecting the start-up speed

3) This page https://support.hp.com/gb-en/product/hp-envy-13-ar0000-x360-convertible-pc/26084836/model/29346975/d... suggests that all Windows 10 laptops can be used with a bluetooth-connected pen and that you can change in Windows what the buttons of the pen do

4) Another page from HP (can't find again) said that I just need to install driver software to get pens to work

 

Which is true? Will the HP Pen or the HP tilt pen work with my laptop? 

Thank you for your help!

Peter
