Sidewinder Force Feedback 2

I have this installed on my PC which has Vista installed. The Joystick decided not to work properly. I ninstalled the Software and when I attempted to reinstall I have a message come up which state "Windows host (Rundll 32) was closed. I have attempted to repair using Data Execution Prevention, but nothing happens. The Joystick appears under Game Control but if you hit on Properties it states There was an internal error that may be due to low system resources. My PC isPentium D3.40GHz, 2047MB, 32 bit.

SOURCE: problem with computer

Hi. I'm Azrul from Malaysia. Your windows installation might be corrupted and the system files might have been modified by a virus. Here is a possible solution for you:

Insert your Windows XP Setup disk in the CD rom drive. Set your boot priority to the cd rom. Wait for the option to repair your Windows XP installation. Do not format or reinstall. Just repair.

SOURCE: drivers for windows vista 64 bit

I am sorry, but I have to tell you that the Sidewinder II is not Vista 64 bit compatible.

Here Microsoft page for Vista compatibility, when they say unknown it means it does not work on Vista 64.

I hope this can save you some time.

SOURCE: data execution prevention ERROR

Hi,
I doubt that this has nothing to do with counterfeiting and you will get a little box in the bottom right hand side of the screen saying so.
The problem should be fixed by running a System Restore and take the machine back to a date before the problems occurred.

Be sure to backup your documents and music. Don't wanna lose those.



Good luck.

SOURCE: Choppy audio windows vista

If audio is choppy it indicates the processor is "busy" and it is buffering due to some other process using up resources and keeping the machine busy so it cannot stream the audio properly. Possibly check the running processes and see which ones have high cpu usage and turn them off, then try it. It may also be a media player issue - have you tried updating the media player or reinstalling it - sometimes installing a service pack will cause a problem with the actual media player - reinstalling them usually fixes that problem.

This article may be of some help. There is a command prompt command that will rebuild the WMI repository. It may fix your issue.

My sidewiner worked fine with xp now new computer


You need the USB adapter if you want to use it in Vista. They are very hard to come by, as most of them don't seem to be compatible with any of the Sidewinder products. This is your only option and not guaranteed. The adapters are about £10.

Microsoft sidewinder force feedback 2 joystick


Well, I just noticed this exactly same problem with my new PC, so i try it with my older PC and it works fine, I´m not sure if this has something to do with the USB 2.0 or the driver, but i was not able to find the version 5.X for it, microsoft page only has the version 3.2.

the extrage part is that both PCs are using the same version of WXP.
