What type of controller is it,for example a xbox 360 controller or a some type of joystick and if so what model? With this info we can further help you into figuring out what the problem could possibly be.

Welcome to SevenForums.

We are bright, but not clairvoyant.

Please supply tech info on this controller.

Also need your system specs:
Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (located on the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec
(left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) or SIW or System Info

Add the word laptop or desktop or netbook to the
“system manufacturer” block, for example,
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on SAVE CHANGES.
