Windows 7: Gamepad stopped working!

22 Jan 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit
Gamepad stopped working!

I seen a bunch of topics like this, and i tried everything there is in them, but my controller still doesn't work!

I got 2 of them - 1 is a Logitech Precision gamepad, and it works fine, and the other is a Genius MaxFire Grandias 12, and it is giving me problems..

I got it yesterday, just plugged it in and it worked fine, then i played some DMC 4, and it suddenly stopped working. I unplugged it, and plugged it back in, and it still doesn't work. I thought it was the port giving me crap, so i plugged the Logitech gamepad in, and it worked fine. I tried the other gamepad at a friend's house, and it worked fine, so why the hell ain't it working for me?!?

Standard gamepad driver for Gravis Gamepad Pro USB?
Hi, I've got a Gravis Gamepad Pro USB and although a device is detected when I plug it in, it fails to install a driver. I can't find any Windows 7 x86 drivers on the net so I believe that I have to use some kind of standard HID driver to get it working, although I'm not sure which one. When...
