I need help with my joystick. It is a MS Sidewinder Prescision 2. It is pluggedinto my USB hub and all the software has been installed but in the Win 2K Pro
joystick manager in the control panel, it shows up as not connected. Does
anyone know why this is? I have searched the entire MS gaming website and went
through all the troubleshoot. An interesting side not is that since I got this
joystick (november 01) This has happened a few times, but on a seemingly randomBreu......... I assume that you installed the software first, before pluggingday i will start up my computer and windows display the generic found new
hardware screen and proceed to install all pertinent files. they stick will
work for a time and then teh problem described above will happen. no amount of
changing usb port numbers or plugging it directly in will change anything. i
have a compaq presario 1800T PIII 800 192 megs of ram. if there was a previous
post on this subject please direct me to that. If not i am asking for some
advice on what to do. another side note: when the joystick does show as
connected and is working, it works perfectly. thank you all for your time.
it in. That is very important.
I have one also on a home built machine and I have 4 ports on the machine and a
4 port hub. My joystick will only work on 2 ports, the 2 ports that are closest
to the MoBo. I read somewhere that if the voltage is not high enough going to
the joystick, the computer wont see it.
try other plugs One might work better than the others.
