Can someone please explain why in the year 2009 do we still have to calibrate joystick and control pads (granted it only takes a couple of seconds in the game) just to get things to hold center? I've never understood why a PC has to calibrate it's gaming peripherals whereas consoles you don't.
I've recently decided to dig out my old Logitech Extreme 3D Pro joystick and put it to good use. However, it seems that Windows 7 either lacks the calibration wizard that Windows XP had or it's just hidden very well. I've google searched "Joystick calibration windows 7" and the like numerous times, all coming up with some tutorial for XP.Anyone could point me in the right direction as to what I should do or where I can go to calibrate this.
i have a joystick with 3D movement and vibration effect. on the joystick it is written that it is compatible with win 98/me/2000/xp/vista. i use win 7 32 bit. the joystick is recognized by the win7 and i'm able to run the self test of the joystick. however this joystick doesn't work in any of the games. i have to use mouse and keyboard. do i need to get a driver for win7 or what. kindly guide.
I have a toshiba satellite P750 running windows 7 Home Premium 64bit,When you boot it loads into the desktop but then freezes, you can still move the mouse but nothing worksCan boot to "safe mode with networking" so i figure my network drivers are alright. I try t odo a sfc /scannow but it crashes at verification 70%.
I loaded the logitech 32-bit driver in VXP and it installed just fine but when it scanned for joysticks it sees nothing. The Device Manager says the driver can't be loaded (Code 39). Anyway back on the Win7 side, the Joystick works fine except for Fury 3, which I also can't get to install so I copyed the CD to the disk and found Fury3.exe and fired it up to see what would happen and it runs, just does not see the joystick, keyboard controls work fine.
so i bought a Tomee Wired Controller Wired TOMEE Controller for PS3 PLAYSTATION 3 USB NEW | eBay and the description says that i simply have to plug it in and the software will install by itself. the first time i plugged it it it said installing driver generic usb joystick so i assumed it worked. im running windows 7 64 bit home premium btw i tried this controller out of lots of games and after plugging it in the buttons did nothing. i was wondering if there was a special program that i can use? motioninjoy does not support this controller cause its not sixaxis controller, but i dont need it for the ps3, just my pc. when you go into properties and stuff you find a place that shows you what buttons youre pressing on the controller, so i know the computer is recieving the controlls, so i was wondering if there was a program that can translate those botton presses into say, left down up and right, or az,sx,dc etc. if not, is there any way fo rmy games to work on this controller? remember this controller is not for ps3 but for pc so theres no worries that i need to translate ps3 code to pc code (idk if there even IS such a thing but whatever)
my computer, a Lenovo Idea pad P580 running on Windows 7, is 5 weeks old and yesterday I was using Microsoft Word to edit a document and Word suddenly crashed. So I closed it, but then the cursor started spinning and I could not access anything on my computer so I rebooted and it started up but then just trying to open Microsoft Word caused the cursor to keep spinning again and I could not access anything. So I again rebooted and this time it was spinning from the beginning. So I again rebooted and turned it on in safe mode and everything was fine. Then turned it off and left it off overnight. In the morning I tried to boot in normal mode and it did boot but it was again spinning and I could not access anything. So I again rebooted in safe mode and I can use my computer fine.And also, this is unrelated, but I was wondering if anyone could tell me what I need to do to make the scroll bar stop moving on its own? Every time I scroll down a page it seems to lock the scroll bar and so when I move the cursor away from the scroll bar, the scroll bar still moves and I cannot click any links or anything on that webpage.
the computer I am concerned with is running Windows 7 with IE8, Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. I am currently in Safe Mode with Networking without issue.The owner of the computer says that something happened earlier today while he was online that sounds like some false antivirus popup, but he's unsure. Here are the symptoms in normal mode. Every application, from moving through them to opening and closing them, runs exceptionally slow - one to three minutes to open, at least a minute to open internet pages. I noticed that, when in IE, as the pages are loading the IE page disappears and reappears. I am not very familiar with Windows 7 so I don't know if it is related. The computer seems to be getting slower as the day goes on. CPU usage is very high.So far, I have disabled many startup items that were unnecessary. I ran CCleaner and cleaned up. MBAM was run in both normal and safe mode, full scans, and found nothing. This is also posted in Viruses and Malware, but I'm unsure where it should live.
window 7 working on safe mode and unable to choose the another restoration point and it is not loading in normal mode -after installed third party software worked on that for few hours, then after switched off and later it switched on then after this problem started, automatic repair done, nothing is notified
i recently ran into a problem with starting up my computer. I have the blue screen of death. I've tried safe mode. It won't work. I would click safe mode it would load and then go back to the blue screen. I have a lenovo laptop and I'm not trying to pay 150-200 for it!
I own an HP G-62-347 Notebook, Windows 7 64 bit, Microsoft Security Essentials, Windows Firewall, no other real time AV, no other Firewalls, Windows Defender disabled as Microsoft instrucs for MSE, 3 GB Raam, 313 GB HDD, AMD Dual Core P-380 processor.My Laptop began freezing 8-10 minutes after bootup logon. No matter what I was doing, Media, Excell, Word, it would freeze up and hang. Sometimes CTL_ALT_DLT would unfreeze it, even before the task manager appeared, but it will take 3-4 minutes with an o[ague screen and the progress "circle" moving then unfreeze, sork 1-2 minutes, freeze, etc. Then all clicks on something to activate would result in loooong (long) delays, 15 to 45 seconds, then the new screen or window or peogram would open, sometimes frozen up.This did not happen in safe mode.I have (on suggestions) removed all things from my start up or programs that other's have suggested, Google Update files, and three or four others that others had issues with that I found on the net. I have also removed programs that I had installed around then.
I have also run, in Safe Mode, MSE, MS Safety Scanner, MS malicious file remover, ESET online Scanner, my laptop is clean.I have used mscong to disable all non-microsoft items to see if that helped. It did not. Same issues.I have used startup repair, and after scanning received a message that there was a problem, but that it could not fix it, did I want to send a report to Microsoft, I checked yes and it sent me to System Restore, ran it for about a week ago which was when I had downloaded some software, and the problem still existed, which sent me back to System Repair, ran it, same error message, reported again.I used a Repair Disk to get back on the laptop a coulple of times when needed, but ultimately, the problem surfaced still.I have used ReImage Plus to rebuild all my defective Windows Files and a lot of my 3rd party defective files. And, I also did a Win 7 repair install.I am pretty convinced something is being loaded somewhere, but can't find where or who or what.Am I on the right track? Have I missed something? Am I wrong? I do not really want to do a clean re-install of Windows 7, for if I do I am reformatting everything to clean any and everything.... sort of NUKE it... but would rather find the culprit (for education purposes). And, I dislike installing and updating and setting up everything again more than I hate "boiled okra!"Anyone and Everyone that has had to do with this or similar sounding issue, please reply. I have two weeks invested, and would like to "graduate" resolving this and getting the learning experience of WHY?
I am using acer laptop,intel Pentium processor,windows7 professional os,my problem is windows is not starting normally and is running safe-mode.when entering normal mode it is displaying "welcome" after entering password "Please wait",it takes a long time to starting window and i'm waiting more than 24 hours but its not starting window normally...but it starting safe mode.
I have been getting BSOD errors whenever booting into regular mode. Safe mode is fine (I have tweaked the registry so I have sound in safe mode) My system specs are in my profile, but used Winaudit for full specs. The winaudit report in formatted text is too big for an attachment. I have 2 attachments to this post, including zipped up minidumps. Could my registry tweak for sound have something to do with this? Perfmon /report was run, but it says:
An error occured while attempting to generate the report. The system cannot find the path specified.
My laptop hangs up/ freeze in normal mode. Now I can only open it on safe mode. I was only copy pasting some files couple days ago when it happened. I have to hold the power button to turn it off. I already tried system restore and reformatted it twice. I'm using HP Pavilion dm4-1160us, windows 7 64-bit.
Today I wanted to intsall Windows 8 in dual boot envirnment with Windows 7 so I created a separate 60gb partition for Windows 8 but after the partition was created, all the previous volumes like Windows 7, HP_Recovry and HP_Tools and the newly created Windows 8 partition are now dynamic plus I can't install Window 8 on that dynamic partition. Below is current situation as shown in disk management in Windows 7: [URL]
I don't want to lose my data including the Windows 7, and HP_Recovry and HP_Tools partitions. clean method to go back to basic disk mode from dynamic mode without losing data. When try to convert from dynamic to basic using easeus utility, it gave me following warning: [URL]
I have installed the 32 bit driver for my Minolta 1300W. I can print happily in XP mode but I don't seem to be able to be able to use the printer in the Windows 7 host (64 bit Pro). Should I be able to see it as a printer if I attempt to print a document in Office? Launching the application doesn't help.
I can't boot my computer in normal mode or safe mode. When I try to do so, after the "starting windows" page the only things that come up are my mouse, a black screen/background, and a "logonui.exe-bad image- Authui.dll isn't designed to run on windows" error/message (not the exact message). I can't use a system restore (it can't find a restore point), the image recovery tool finds no image to restore from, system repair either doesn't find a problem or can't fix the problem, and basically nothing else works (none of the advanced boot options or other various buttons and tools do anything noticeable). I've even tried to use sfc in command prompt, but whenever I do any sfc things at all (/scannow, verifyonly, verifyfile, etc.) it says there is a system repair pending that requires a reboot. I've restarted 7-8 times and the exact same message keeps coming up. I'm looking for any general help I can get right now, [I can post my computer specifics in an hour when I have time](posted a few). I have an HP pavilion dv6-6135dx wiht Windows 7 x64.Processor: AMD a8-3500m APU, raedon graphics bios vender/version: insyde, f. 20.I'm having trouble getting more info because my computer is still crashing occasionally and I don't really know what else is relevant; if you need more, I might need directions on how to get it. Especially if it involves command prompt.I should also add that it has been crashing more often than I think is normal ever since I got it, but recently it BSODed 3-4 times a day. I have antivirus and also ran a full malwarebytes scan yesterday, and it only found one little issue which was resolved.
