You'll have to buy a game port to usb converter, or a creative labs sound card with a game port. you are more likely to find the sound card. creative labs sound cards are more likely to be compatible with vista.

Unable to connect Joystick in Game Controlers


What game are you trying to play? Most newer games don't know about the old game ports anymore. That could be the cause.

P1005 hp printer windows vista will not recognise


hmmmm i would first make sure all window vista driver are in first. then try installing the cd. or if you want to try the driver only and not all the extra software...

1st uninstall the driver and software and do not connect the printer. until it asks you.

2nd put the factory cd for the printer but do not let it run automatically. cancel the installation.

3 you go to the control panel add printer, etc. have look for the driver and say "have cd" or go to the cd drive where the vista folder is holding the driver file.

i know this can be tidious but its kinda old school for installing a driver instead of letting the cd do it automatically have the computer find the driver on the cd first. dont add all the extra software. try it and see if it works then try to add all the extra software.

personaly i think sometimes the vista updates stuff where it screws with the drivers and then your computer does not know what its looking for. i hope this kinda helps. sorry for your mishap.

have you also tried connecting to all the usb slots?

Sidewinder Won't Enable


I uninstalled everything to do with sound etc, removed the sound card (gameport included), cleaned up the registry, installed a new sound card with gameport and it is now working. With a new soundcard, you get up to date drivers and that, I think, was the problem. MSFFP does not like an old Aztech Soundcard. Drivers for the joystick are included in XP and seem to function OK but I doubt whether you will be able to use it in Vista. I have the handbook if anybody wants a scanned copy.

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.

Old game conection


A Gameport to USB adaptor will not work with Suncom F-15 with or without the SFS Throttle. You have to obtain and install a PCI sound card that has a DB15 gameport. Creative AudigyLS cards work great, when these instructions are followed:

http://forums.americas.creative.com/t5/Windows-Vista/Gameport-support-pack-for-Vista-32-bit-x86-updated-on-07-07-2009/td-p/386462

Other PCI sound cards work, but be careful of some OEM cards.

ISO S100 software driver for Vista...


Vista or any other NTFS computer will recognise a camera as simply another drive.
It needs no extra software.
Plug the camera in.Making sure it is on and in the upload mode
The Scanner/Camera Wizard will come up and ask what it is you want to do with the drive- Select a mode that suit
transfer images say
there you are.
Let Windows do the work
