Its not the controller, its the game... or more specifically any recent PC game Microsoft tried to advertise its Xbox controller in. I bought the same controller you did, and ran into the same problem for GTA IV, another game that claims to have game pad support but if it doesn't see you plug in an Xbox controller, there is a good chance you will be unable to play with that game pad due to controls being messed up. The controller was fine though but I instantly assumed it was broken.

Search for any game microsoft tried to promote their Xbox/360 controller with along with the words "problem" or "gamepad" or something similar, and you'll see that we are very much not alone. Always the same kinds of symptoms like buttons being opposite of how they should be or one of the sticks getting "stuck" in one direction for no reason so the camera is staring straight up or down or some other annoyance.

There are fixes for some of the games which aren't hard but annoying. You have to go into the game's input.ini configuration and figure out which control is repsonsible for the button(s) on your controller which are acting up. Then try to reverse it by changing 'right' to the word 'left' or turning a negative value into a positive one.

These 'bugs' will take the developers a very long time to put out a fix if they every do. Calling tech support will usually have them try to convince you your controller is broken and they recommend an Xbox controller to play. I can't see how this isn't being done on purpose with how long its been happening and how the same company and their controllers always magically dodge the bullet when it comes to affected game pads.

Its very unethical purposely make a product cause problems in a game you claim supports "gamepads" in general. The worst part about it is that its done in a way to trick consumers into believing they have a broken product when nothings wrong with it, just to push them into buying yours. Does microsoft really need money to the point they resort to this?

Anyway, sorry to rant. If you don't find any guides to fix your game through the ini file, you could look into something like SPADE which lets you disguise your controller so the game thinks its an Xbox controller and *gasp* wow, it suddenly plays bug free, amazing! It must be because Xbox controllers are just so awesome that just dressing a different controller will heal it, right?

... greedy corporate *bleeeeeep*

Here is a list of games on the "Games for Windows" label for anyone who wants see if those happen to have controller issues too: http://www.giantbomb.com/pc-games-with-xbox-360-controller-support/92-2465/

My cdram disk doesnt work properly?


If you're using Windows,

Try using SYSTEM RESTORE to go back to a date where you were able to use your computer normally.
- Just click START
- Type SYSTEM RESTORE on SEARCH PROGRAMS AND FILES Bar
- Hit ENTER and then just follow the steps.

You can also try deleting the upper and lower filters for the CD ROM. It's like resetting it.
Warning: Before using this fix you should backup the registry. This can be done by selecting File --> Export from within the registry editor

1. Go to START --> RUN --> Type REGEDIT and hit ENTER
2. Navigate to the key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
3. In the right pane look for these 2 values - UpperFilter and LowerFilter.
4. Delete the UpperFilter key by right clicking on it and choosing Delete and OK.
5. Repeat step 4 for the LowerFilter key.
6. Exit the registry editor and restart the computer.

If this doesn't work, contact your manufacturer to have them check the unit for you especially if it's still in warranty. This may be a hardware issue and will be needing replacement.

Hope this helps.

I rebooted laptop and dont know password to get back on


Hii,
Assuming that this is a windows logon password (not a BIOS password): we have two more choices... either we might be using vista or an XP..
However if you are lucky enough to have XP you may try loggin using a guest or default admin account under safe mode (* by tapping F8 key when computer boots) and then change the password NOTE: even this procedure might require you to remember the password under change password screen and might sometimes be helpful., you can even try doing a system restore :) . 
And if we use VISTA.. we might try the above procedure but it is seldom helpful. so we need to take help of other tools like Offline NT Password and Registory Editor.
If you use XP a simple googling might help to hack your password, for Vista you either need to reinstall it again or try third party tools as the one mentioned above. 
THE LINK FOR OFFLINE NT PASSWORD AND REGISTORY EDITOR IS:
http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/
also please do read the disclaimer of the author.
THIS SOFTWARE COMES WITH NO WARRANTY WHATSOEVER. THE AUTHOR IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE CAUSED BY THE (MIS)USE OF THIS SOFTWARE! 
All the Best. -srikanthpavan.

If you have been careless on line and are not running virus protection, you may be infected.

There are a number of sites on line that will scan your system and I suggest you use them before you are completely out of business.
