Not Working withwindows XP, Calibrated but thrust not working. Extensive research on web no joy. dont want to spend money at drivers sites


I understand. I oathed long ago never to spend money at driver sites myself.
You can get drivers for your joystick for free at the manufacturer's website. If it's too old a stick for that, for instance the company may be gone by now, then you can still try to sweet talk Windows into recognizing its capabilities by going into Start, Control Panel, Game Controllers, and select Add. Now the challenge becomes one of trying to pick a generic setup that best fits what you own. You're going to have to fiddle around with this part until you find one that works 'right enough' with what your using, unless you can get the specific drivers from the manufacturer.
I've had good luck in the past with the generic drivers XP comes with, so give it a go.
Best, William

I have a Twin USB Vibration Gamepad i need the driver for Windows 7


there is no driver for windows 7 as sitek (the chinese manufacturer of the device that sells it as in "white box license" for others to print its logo on discontinued such a device since 2005. Mind you sitek.com itself has vanished and a new firm has taken over that address.
Thus end of story , problem on relaying on a small time manufacturor , however i do have the xp drivers and they do work , windows 7 would not accept them and insists that the generic driver it uses is up to date (which works fine except the vibration a.k.a force-feed-back wont work)
I am working on a new uproach on injecting the xp driver into windows 7 registry and if it works i'll let you know :)

I borrowed a Ubisoft game that runs on Windows XP. When I tried to load it I got a message 'Windows cannot read from this disc it might be corrupted or using a format not compatable with Windows' yet it...


many things can cause this one of the biggest problems is updating the drivers on your pc, also, in some cases it depends on what version of windows, you have xp home, xp pro, etc etc, this can have an affect on that, sometimes it may be down to weather certain files like activex are installed, weather you are an administrator of the system really the list is endless, there may be a couple of ways to sort it, first off, try right clicking the install file ( from cd/dvd drive) and then run as administrator, this might help, second, try compatibility mode, it could be you have things that have been updated on your system where as your friend may not, you could also , as said earlier update your drivers mostly sound and graphics cards are the normal ones, give the cd/dvd a clean , your drive might be a bit more sensitive than your friends and may not read disks as good as his, as i said the list is endless but you have a few things there to try out...hope one works for you

Saitek Pro Flight yoke and quadrant stop working


I had a similar problem with Vista Home 32. Finally tried an old external USB 1.1 hub that I had laying around and now everything works all the time in FSX and X-Plane. It is rock solid. Can't make it fail even when I try. I also tried a USB 2.0 hub but had the same problem with that. I can't say for sure it will fix your problem but it is worth a try.

When I bank right or left with joystick the screen Freezes


To check the joystick isn't the problem, go into control panel game controls, then check that the joystick appears and you can move the cross-hair around on screen, most modern joysticks are
auto-calibrating, but you could try running the calibration.

To check the game isn't a problem, unplug the joystick, then use the arrow keys to fly the plane, if it doesn't crash when you bank then it isn't the game.

I assume the game is Combat Flight Simulator 3, as very old games that were written for Windows 95,98,ME series often won't run on Windows NT,2000,XP,Vista as they are completely different versions of Windows. If this is actually Flight Simulator 3, you may need to consider buying a later version of Flight Simulator (FSX is the latest version, but may not run on your laptop).

Other things to try are updating the graphics card driver.

Norton shouldn't need deactivating, although it could cause problems if you're playing online.

Also remember that laptop graphics cards are never as powerful as desktop graphics, and games very rarely specifically support laptop graphics.

Hope this helps.

Drivers Emach T5230


I solved this problem completely later that day.
Here's how:

From the Emachines site I downloaded and installed the file:
RealTek_Audio_5_10_0_5152.

This dirver is for vista but it must also be for XP because it really worked well.

This can be found at www.emachines.com
click on: customer care > product support and downloads.

Then select desktops, T-Series, and T5230.
By clicking the plus sign [+] next to downloads below you will see a list of drivers including:

Realtek High Definition Audio Driver

be sure to click on the Driver File Download (36.29 MB) and not just the readme file.

download this to your computer and run the self extracting install.
Then right click on the MyComputer icon (on your desktop or windows explorer) and choose Hardware tab and Device Manager to verify that the RealTek audio device is working properly.

You'll see the other broken devices there of course.

I went to www.nvidia.com and downloaded:

nvidia is easy to navigate. Just click on Download Drivers

The GeForce 6150SE video card driver

From Option 1 select GeForce, GeForce 6 Series, Windows XP and click the Search button. Then click download now. to save the file to your computer so you can click on it there to perform the driver install. This made a huge difference in the quality of my display.

nForce 430 chipset driver installers

From Option 1 select nForce, nForce 4 Series, GeForce 6150SE/nForce 430, driver, windows XP. Then click search followed by Download Now to save the file to your computer for installation.

This took care of everything but the generic PCI device.
For that, I hooked my legitimate copy of Windows XP to the internet using my newly functional RJ-45 network jack and an ethernet cable and let windows find the driver for me. Which it did seemlessly. No More Yellow questionmarks in the Device Manager!

That was mostly painless.

I noticed that some quicktime programs didn't like my nVidia driver so I created an alternate hardware profile to use the generic windows video driver and that solved that problem too.

I didn't have to open the case on the emachine and I still have the Vista install disk that came with it if I want to go back.

I'm impressed that my games work fine on XP home when the didn't on Vista. I expected it to be the other way arround.

Xbox 360 Controller for Windows causes fuzzy sound


Found a solution! Came here to post it, since I could not find the solution ANYWHERE on the internet...


Using an Xbox 360 controller or any other Xbox 360 peripheral with 95% of USB sound cards or headsets will produce HORRIBLE sound input and output. It sounds like a robot has swallowed and spat back out the waveforms. Even if the 360 peripheral is removed any USB audio devices plugged in after the fact will still sound corrupted until a fresh reboot without the 360 peripheral plugged in.



I believe that the problem is somehow linked to the "generic root hub" driver, which hasn't been updated since 2001, thanks M$.


The solution (pick one of 3):
As long as the 360 peripheral is on it's own internal virtual root hub it will not interfere with other devices. You can force it to use another root hub by doing ONE of the following:
1) Fill up your usb ports with other devices till it shifts to using a secondary root hub, then plug in the 360 peripheral. This could take up to 10 USB things, depending on your motherboard and the maximum devices on each root hub.
2) Use an extra internal PCI-USB card for the 360 peripheral.
3) Use an extra external USB hub for the 360 peripheral.



NOTE: A reboot is usually required to clear up the driver's confusion.
