MAKE SURE THAT YOUR LAPTOP IS HARDWIRED FOR ANY NEW PROGRAM OR DOWNLOAD.

Where do I find programs in my computer:

Use the large brick along with the wall plug as the docking station power source.

What’s included with the stylus?

The stylus (the pen) comes with extra nibs and the little silver ring is the tool to use to pinch the existing nib to remove it. You also get a tether for the stylus.
