MSI REWARDS - PARTICIPATE ON MSI FORUMS, GET REWARDS
As far as I'm aware, only the two blue USB ports on the back of the board are connected to the USB 3.0 controller, the others are connected to the USB 2.0 controller.What USB joypad are you talking about anyway?
So if you do as I stated, and click Properties, a box doesn't open which shows you which button is being pressed on the joypad?
What joypad is it? Obviously Windows 7 understands it incorrectly for something else, installs some similar but no-good drivers, and you can't use it. From reading my guess would be it is a Belkin of Logitech device, but I'm happily proven wrong.
Check who made the thing and ask them for better drivers.
With the new motherboard, did you do a fresh installation of Windows?
http://eu.msi.com/index.php?func=downloaddetail&type=driver&maincat_no=1&prod_no=2012You must install the USB drivers as it's a USB 3.0 board.I suspect you just moved the board and didn't install drivers If installing doesn't help either, then try a fresh windows install, as windows is very picky about changing motherboards.
Thanks Bas.Yes, sir I already DID ALL OF THAT including re-installing a fresh new copy of the two different Operating Systems on two separate NTFS partitions. I even keep the controller plugged in during the process just to make sure it will really work afterwards. And I have all updated drivers... Didn't help. Same issue. It sucks. But oh well, maybe that's just how USB 3.0 boards behave on these old USB 2.0 joypad game controllers, I dont know. I'll try to connect another USB game controller that comes along with its own driver CD to see if the motherboard still acts the same way...
Welcome to the world of electronics.It's not uncommon things won't work on one system and fail on the other.All these connectors work with timings, it could well be your pad is critical.As you stated, everything else works fine, expect the pad.So there must be some compatibility between the board or Windows and the pad.
For all we know it could also be a problem with the pad and W7, have you tried XP on that machine, just to see if it happens there too?
USB things are not to be connected during the Windows installation! Only when Windows is well up and running do you attach it.
Please try again.
"even keep the controller plugged in during the process just to make sure it will really work afterwards" That is not correct, sorry.
have you tried the pad via an USB 1.x/2.x hub?
