I HAVE A WACOM PAD INTUOS 3, IT MALFUNCTIONED AS IT SHORTLY REGISTERED WITH VISTA. HELP. GUTTED? USB WIRING?

it malfunctioned, it shortly registered with the blue light, it intermittently went out shortly after when vista was on. is it an electronic fault? got the latest patches but it doesn't even register as it tells me it has malfunctioned, tempted to pull it apart and look at the wiring particularly the usb part. any advice would be the best, thanks for reading

Look on Wacom.com and look for drivers.   Download an earlier version of driver.   But,  since you just upgraded,  try getting a more up to date driver.
the only thing your going to accomplish by taking it apart is ruining it. Did you install the drivers BEFORE hooking it up to the computer? If not you need to restore your computer to a point before hooking up the tablet and reinstall the drivers.

Is it new or have you had it a long time? Did it ever work right or is this the first time you've plugged it in? Can you get something else to work in the same usb port?
