Many computer users, don't even know that, there exist hundreds of commands, which can enhance your experience using computers..... and they are even useful to impress others with your knowledge in computers.
Nearly all of the Run Commands Correspond to a particular Control Panel Item or any utility or tool or task that can be accessed through Windows.
There are, however, tools and utilities that I bet you never knew you had that can be accessed through the Run feature.
The main reason most people don't use the Run feature is because they don't know the Commands.
So, to solve that problem, I decided to put together some most useful Run commands
First of all how to get run box
Click Start. Click Run.

go to Control Panel->Device Manager and check the settings for it. if there is an exclaimation mark on its icon there, then right click on it and choose to remove it and reinstall it, or update the driver. then if you can see a normal icon for it there in control panel, you can change the settings for it. There is a joystick icon in control panel. if it still does not work, you might need to install some patch from the manufacturer's web site, check the issue in their forum first for the specific issue of the joy stick. sometimes it just take a fine tune of the device mechanically. you can also make sure there is no conflicts on the devices such as another device is using the same port or something. but for USB devices those may not happen too often. check BIOS for port settings if that cause of issue is possible.
you can use Microsoft fixit to check whether the software is working properly for your device too. http://support.microsoft.com/mats/hardware_device_problems/en-us
Go to Control Panel->System->Hardware->Device Manager->Sound,Video & Game Controllers & see if the sound drivers are properly installed or not.If not the re-install them again.You should have the Sound (on Board or Card ) Drivers CD/Floppy wth you to do it.Else try internet to download your audio drivers.
