    How do you replace the plastic "pen" at the top of the "pen" (the tool you use for writting that is specific to this computer).
    I cannot find any instruction.

    PS: I would like to say that I've had to reformulate my question so many times as I keep getting the following

    Yes, I'd like to replace the writting tip at the end of the p*n.
    The computer came with a nice bundle of replacement tips, but no instruction on how to replace them.
    Thanks for your help.

    They unfiltered p*n. Now dont we look silly. (in your post but it still wont let me say it.)

    You've have the replacement nibs?

    look for a small metal ring type thing, it isn't a complete ring it is slit and has a little hole place the hole around the nib squeeze the ring and pull out the nib, just push in the replacement.

    You can use a nail clipper if you want just dont squeeze the cutter too hard or you will cut the nib in half.

    In the toshiba manual it should tell you how to replace the nib, it does in my m200 manual.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi Mudassar,
    We certainly do look silly now that the censors have rephrased my question.
    You'd think they'd reset their dictionnary to accept this very basic word...
    There is no metal ring on the p*n (it still doesn't accept it ...) supplied with the M400 but I flew back home to the UK last night and have now access to the manual.
    Thank you for your help.
    I hope we have fun again in the future.
    Take care,
    Christophe
