Question about Saitek CYBORG EVO FORCE Joystick

1 Answer

Can't get it to work in vista

Using Vista Ultimate 32 bit OS.

The install CD that came with the stick is only good for WXP.

I went to the Saitek site and downloaded the Vista 32 drivers for the stick.

When I click on the driver file and run the install wizzard I get stuck at the "plug your device" step.The "next" tag stays grayed after plugging the power and USB wires as prompted. I hear the "boing" sound of a device being plugged but Vista does not seem to acknowledge it
Interestingly enough I am able to use an older MS Sidewinder Forcefeedback 2 stick even though it does not appear listed under "game devices" in the device manger after plugging it.
I have contacted Saitek support and they keep telling me to download the Vista drivers from their site,which I did repeatedly and always with the same result noted above.

They just want you to buy a brand new one. Don't do it. If they can't help you, Make the controller RMA on their site, which means, they are forced to by law to send you a brand new one once they receive the controller from you. BTW, this is free, Except some companies, charge S and H. Good Luck. Please rate my solution.

P.S. Try it on another PC with XP, if you own one. If not, try a friends PC.

Not working with windows 7


You can download the driver software from the Saitek website, here's the link http://www.saitek.com/uk/down/drivers.php
Just select Joystick in the first drop down box, then your version of windows 7 (32 or 64 bit) then just follow the instructions to download your drive.
Install the driver before you plug in yours joystick (the driver will more than likely ask you to plug it in at some point in the install process).
I hope this help you out.

Microsoft Combat Simulator Doesn't work with joy stick satik 290 pro. nothing works. it worked on xp. doesn't work on vista home.


You need the drivers from Saitek.com.

After selecting download > software, use the "Choose your Product Type) box. Select Joystick and you will find yours listed.

You need to know if you're using Vista or Vista64.

Install them, then plug your stick in. Should then work.
