I was crestfallen to learn, after spending more than a week re-tuning my new OS install to run just so, that my Intuos 3 driver was not playing nice with Windows 7.
Recently, I ruined my XP install with only two swift selections. In a nutshell, and without going into too much detail, I accidentally told my computer to forget which drive XP was installed on (and to never be able to remember). Of course I hadn't realized this mistake until I was greeted with a complete inability to rebuild my boot sector. While this might make me seem like a dunce who doesn't know what he's doing, the circumstances that created this mess for me are more complicated than you might expect. I am a dunce who marginally knows what he's doing.
So I decided to make the switch to Windows 7, rather than re-install a ten year old OS for the fourth or fifth time. Everything was working brilliantly; until I attempted to use my pen in Photoshop. The stroke would at random, and very frequently, lose all sensitivity and make a full-force line. It was completely unworkable, especially if you know anything about history states in Ps. I'm really glad I found a fix. I list it here in the very off chance someone else who has the same problem is ever reading this. I had to rollback the driver to 6.15.
So, all problems have been ironed out. I lost about two weeks to these and other problems but I am back to work now!
