The wiring may be frazzled. I bought my son two 'compatible' gamecube control pads so he could play his gamecube games on his Wii, but they got fried. So my new motto is to spend that little bit more if you want longevity.

I got the controller conected to my laptop, but the buttons wont work when i start playing the game, its a p380 dual analog pc gamepad


you must first make sure you installed the software drivers for the controller. when you open the game, make sure that you've setup the controller in your options window. your controller name should show up if done correctly. Note: in some cases, some games aren't compatable with certain controllers, i suggest that if this is the issue, you consider getting a better supported controller, preferrably a Microsoft 360 controller. they're cheap and wireless.

My logitec precision gamepad is not working in NHL 2009.


Thank you for your time and attention. Can I use a Logitech Precision gamepad to play online video games? I plugged in the USB in the front of my pc tower, but I can't control the games with it. The games only respond to my keyboard. Is there something I need to do or is it that I can't use it to play online videogames? Please help.

Gigaware controller on vista


Hi,
You don't (and can't) disable DEP for the controller (a gamepad controller isn't an application, it's a device which uses a driver, Data Execution Protection applies to applications ie .exe files), it's the game or emulator you disable DEP for, so that you the game can run, completely free of security bindings, and then you would be able to go into the game configuration menu and select your gamepad, and calibrate it. Calibrating means the game detects you gamepad and applies the specific functions to each button.
One way to be sure is to disable DEP for everything, then install a game, and THEN plug in your gamepad. Then start the game/emulator and go to the configuration menu within the game/emulator and set up the gamepad calibration in there.
If it doesn't work, then you haven't installed the drivers for the gamepad properly, or haven't installed the correct driver.

Before doing any of that, you would have checked in Control Panel and Gamepad Controllers, double clicked the Gamepad in the list and pressed Calibrate, to enable generic gamepad functionality.
If you hadn't done that, do so now.
If it still doesn't work, then NOW disable the DEP (either all DEP or for the game/emulator you want to play). Unplug the Gamepad and load up a game. Then plug the game pad in. Set up the gamepad from within the game/emulator config menu, which differs from game to game, of course, but is more or less the same.
If it doesn't work.. re-install the correct driver for the gamepad.
Also make sure your operating system is fully updated and you're plugging the gamepad into a usb2.0 port. and have rebooted after installing the gamepad usb driver.
That's everything you need to know..
Good Luck!

How do you know it's not doing anything? Have you run the calibration software? If not run that software. If its not working specifically in a game you need to go the settings in the game and set up the controller to be used.
Good luck,
