Saitek X45 "Unknown device" when plugging in. Windows 7x64
So i do own a Saitek X45 joystick.
Thing is, it sometimes does and sometimes doesn't work.
Situation 1. (day one)
I plug in the controller, everything works great.
Situation 2 (day two)
I plug in the controller and get "uknown device" error. I tried different drivers, software, uninstalling the device in manager. Didn't work.
I googled a bit, some people had similiar problem. I run into a hint with USB.
So the next day, i plugged off my keyboard, mouse and printer. Then i plugged the joystick... It worked.
So i figured, this has to do something with USB recognition or device priorities.
Unfortunately, now it's been a week and the joystick doesn't work. Im tired of switching the cables, devices. It's a 50/50 chance.
I saw a similiar topic HERE
Unfortunately it's a bit old and i don't want to mess up something in my system.
My configuration :
Processor : Phenom X2 II 550 BE (3,1 ghz) @ Phenom X4 II B50 (4,1 ghz)
Memory : 2x2GB Patriot LLK 800mhz @ 1150 mhz 5-5-5-15 2.25v
Video Card: EVGA GTX 260 SSC
Motherboard: Asus M4A785-M
Does anyone know something about USB/IRQS?
I have the latest chipset drives and bios...
PS. When i wrote this post the joystick started to work again.
