What's a good replacement cable for this tablet? It's been working fine all this time, but today when i connected it to my laptop it didn't turn on at all. I'm on Windows 8.1 Update 1 x64. After updating it still worked fine, I've tried it, so it can't be a compatibility issue. i've switched the battery too and nothing. And i actually have the same problem you used to have.

It (very rarely) will 'die' out for a few milliseconds and causes me to mess up in a song. It isn't enough to make me super mad, and I'm pretty sure it's due to my cable being a bit faulty. I'm also thinking it might be the battery in the pen maybe somehow jiggling out of place momentarily.
I'd suggest trying a different cable first, though. The first cable I had, that came with the tablet, would give the tablet power only if it was in a certain position, then would disconnect if I tried doing anything. I snipped the cable and cut out which part I thought was bad (I jiggled my wire a lot and saw that if I jiggled this certain section it would disconnect/connect) and taped the wires inside back together and it worked perfectly fine (though it would disconnect if any of the wires touched each other. Understandable). Of course this was only a temporary fix until I got a replacement cable.
Oh, and i forgot to mention, yes i have tried putting it in certain positions so it can work and I tried reinstalling the drivers. Nothing came out of those two.
