The stylus or active pen, as it is called by HP, only shows a curser on the screen but does not select or draw when pressed down.
I know it is compatible with my laptop because it came in the same box and it worked fine the first few months. The stylus is HP Active Pen k8p73aa. Can there be a possibility that this is a software issue rather than hardware. Any updates or functions I can do?
If your system supports palm rejection technology, when the active stylus is in use, the touch screen does not respond to input from your hand. Wait approximately 1.5 seconds between using the stylus and using your finger.
If the touch screen responds slowly to input from your hand after you use the stylus, you might need to update the firmware for the touch screen.
