Compatibility Hi, I'm thinking of buying a Saitek PS28 for my son. Is there any minimum system requirements I should be aware of before I buy? I'd hate to get it and find it won't work with my pc. Thanks.

As long as the computer has a spare USB port and is running Windows, it will be fine.

I have a X52 pro. Throttle works fine, but the lights on the stick are constanly flashing and the stick doesn't work

if your X52 is less than 2 years old and you have the receipt, it's under warranty. Call Saitek and they will take it back and fix it (no charge). Mine is more than 2 years old so I am out of luck.

Hi dear Sir/Madam I formated my system cause virus attack,my system Model No is [ AWRDACPI ] but I still not back my drivers vga and sound card, how can i reinstall my drivers,every sites showing buy from...

You have not said what operating system you are using. If you are using XP or Vista or 7, the operating system comes with nearly all the drivers required to support the devices the OS will run.

A place I would suggest you start is the Windows 7 compatibility list. Find it here: Look up each hardware device you require drivers for. If the device is listed, you can get additional information and the source of any required drivers.

If you are running Vista or XP or (gasp) ME or even W-98, there are similar sites that you can be linked to. Be aware ME and 98 are no longer supported ... translation, there is no new information posted after the official expiration date.

If you don't find the device listed under the OS you are using, there probably is no driver. However, before you replace the device, check with the computer manufacturer or the device manufacturer. For example, if your computer is a HP ... go to If your device is a nokia ... yo would go to

Good luck with your project and thanks for your question

I have installed windows7 in my system , but VGA is not supported my motherboard model: 845gvsr prodessor: 2.8 GHz. Ram : 2GB Hard Disk: 500 GB

I think u should read the requirements for installing the Win7!

The win7 have a very strict HARDWARE REQUiREMENTS that they are forcing u to buy new board and processor!

If ur Win 7 runs in ur board and the prob is the video, read again the requirement, I think the minimum reqirement for win 7 is 512mb of video card!

Hope that hels u out!

There is a conflict within the settings for your 52. Make sure that you change the "look down" key setting in FSX as think the command your stick is sending is conflicting.

The throttle is stuck open on my Saitek 3D Pro, how can I fix it? Multiple calibrations thru FSX have proved unsuccesfull. It's hard to finish a landing with it open

You need to completely remove the calibration you have done. uninstall the driver, reboot and then connect stick back up. Follow on-screen prompts for the driver disk and reinstall. Check there are no conflicts in the sticks own software once installed, then calibrate it.

If still no go, then the stick is faulty.
