Re: don't know what to do

You either have corrupted drivers or you have a device conflict.
you'll need to uninstall and reinstall the drivers for it. (try to right click and update drivers, if this doesn't work, then you'll have to download the drivers from your MOBO manufacturer.

My battery exploded

Not sure what you're asking about but if this just happened and you need to clean it up then you will need to neutralize whatever has spilled. Was it a standard alkaline battery, nickle cadium, don't know...??? Quickly google how to neutralize whatever you have, then add some more details about whatever problem you're having. Be careful!

Upgraded PC, now can't get PC to recognise or accept config of my GP500.Get message that game port is not configured ????.

You might need to install the driver for your component first, before connecting it. If you don't have the disk you can always go the the manufactures web site to download it ( will need to enter the type of model/model number ). Also make sure that the port that it plugs in to is enabled. You can check this by going to 'device manager' ( click the 'start' menu > right click on 'computer/my computer' > on the pop up menu click 'manage' > on the tools window that comes up, on the left pane click 'device manager'. then search for the input connection on the list in the main part of the window. If it has a red or yellow mark on it, you can right click to see and it may be. might need to enable it or get new drivers for it ).
Hope this helps!! good luck!!

I can,t get windows 7 to recognize this joystick

Is this the version you have, ? If it is, click on Downloads, then select Win7 in the OS drop down and then the version (32- or 64-bit). Install the driver and see if that works.

If it doesn't work, check that your USB ports are working and active. Try a different port and check if a known working USB device in the ports. Try a direct connection instead of a hub. Check the Device Manager (Control Panel > System and Security > System) for an red triangle with an X or a yellow triangle with an exclamation point. If you have either one, try to update your drivers and make sure that the ports are not disabled for security. Also check for USB ports that are disabled for power savings (an advanced setting from the Screen Saver).

If these do not solve the problem, then the USB cord may be damaged. To fix, you would have to be confident in the ability to desolder the cable and then solder in a new one without losing track of which wire is which. (Standard USB 2.0 cables have pin 1 red +5 V, pin 2 white D- (data), pin 3 green D+ (data), and pin 4 ground.) If it isn't the cable, then it is the joystick circuitry and I have no information on the circuit board design.

I hope this helps.

When I plug my Usb Logitech Rumblepad 2, it says that the usb device is unrecognized.

Try another usb port on the computer. If that doesn't do it try another computer, and if the problem still there then it is the controller.

Drivers Emach T5230

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

From the Emachines site I downloaded and installed the file:

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

This can be found at
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 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.
