Do I even have pen pressure capabilities?

I just bought a laptop,
Asus - Flip 2-in-1 13.3" Touch-Screen Laptop
Model: Q302LA-BBI5T14 SKU: 5827062

I like it a lot and just installed Photoshop CS3 on it, running windows 10.

So far so good, and the stylus pen works fine. But ...........It doesn't recognize pen pressure.

I've already tried going into the brush settings and toggling "ON" the Pen Pressure from the drop down in dynamics and followed the tutorials online, but now i'm wondering if my tablet even has pen pressure capabilities!

Help, please!

Most low end touch screens don't have pressure support - because it takes more complex circuitry in the display and pen. Check the manufacturer specs and tablet driver preferences to see if you actually have pressure support.

Also, CS3 only supports the WinTab pressure API, and third party tablet drivers aren't very good at supporting it.
