Pen pressure... semi working? (Photoshop CC 2019)

I recently got a new laptop after some issues with the old one (new model is an HP 15-dw0008ca, the old one was an ASUS X555D). There were no issues on the old ASUS one (Ps CC 2018) however on the new HP laptop when I downloaded Ps CC 2019 I ran into a bit of a problem. There seems to be some pen pressure recognition, but it appears to be lacking. So when attempting to draw a line with the default Hard Round Pressure Size brush, the little circle marking the cursor doesn't come anywhere near being filled, however, when using the default Hard Round brush the paint fills in the lines just fine. When using the Hard Round Pressure Opacity brush, the paint does fill in the cursor boundaries, but even when pressing down hard on my tablet, I can't seem to get the opacity past, I'd say, 25%. Both computers ran on Windows 10.

To demonstrate, in this figure all brushes used were at 125 px and at 100% opacity. The red square is a reference to the colour and opacity I would have liked to see.

It seems to only be a problem with Photoshop because when I opened Krita all the brushes reacted fine to the pen pressure. So the pen pressure does work it's just not at the fullest I think.

I have already tried the following:

     1) Uninstalling and reinstalling the tablet driver (I use a Gaomon M106K),

     2) Clicking the little pen pressure icons on the upper toolbar,

     3) Going into the brush settings and playing with the parameters,

     4) Resetting the tools,

     5) Uninstalling and reinstalling Photoshop,

     6) Turning off my computer and back on again,

     7) Installing older versions of Ps,

     8) Enabling and disabling Windows ink,

     9) Messing around with my Gaomon pen settings,

     10) Changing the painting cursor to Normal and others.

I have genuinely no idea what this could be and any help would be greatly appreciated!

Do you know if you are using WinTab or Windows Ink API?

Tablet support for Photoshop on Windows 8

I used to think that WinTab was the best choice, but I have read that this might have changed with the latest versions of Photoshop CC.  I still use WinTab with Windows 10 and have no issues.  Photoshop handles pen pressure differently to apps like Krita and Painstorm Studio.  We are forever seeing posts that say Krita works OK and Photoshop doesn't.

[EDIT]  I decided I was not very clea

[EDIT]  I decided I was not very clear in my above statement.  If you are not already using WinTab, turn off Windows Ink and set up the Wintab text file.

1. Create a text file in a text editor such as Notepad.

2. Type in the following lines:

    UseSystemStylus 0

3. Save the file as a plain text file named PSUserConfig.txt in the Photoshop settings folder: [Installation Drive]:\Users\[User Name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2019\Adobe Photoshop CC 2019 Settings\

I can't believe I overlooked this! I didn't have to turn off Windows Ink, but the text file seemed to have been enough to fix the issue on its own. Thank you so much!

This didn't work for me, using PS 2023 and an ASUS Pen, which now still functions as a mouse, but without any pen pressure, ie not drawing at all.
