I don't want to be disappointed with this 890GX model.
This is the third mainboard I bought in my life and this is the best one I got. I like the specs and all its features, and it's a mATX.
One reason I decided to get this thing is because of the current requirements demanded by today's games. And I'm thinking I can play them using this board smoothly considering all its capabilities. So far it's doing good, however I got a little concern about playing games using a standard USB game controller (joypad).
The computer recognizes the USB controller every time I plug it in, loads default drivers in it (Win7) during the initial process 'til it says it's ready to be used.
That's the usual stuff and I got no problem with that. What irks me is I can't use the "recognized" controller. I don't understand why.
I checked to see the controller properties, the settings and all. It's there but I can't calibrate it. It's like "for your eyes only"
Then I suspected it's this motherboard's "bug". I start to blame the motherboard simply because my other OLD motherboard lets me play it (the controller) with no hassles whatsoever. It's not a hardware problem, not an OS problem either. I had Windows 7 and XP installed on that old system and my controller works perfectly fine with it.
Now I badly want this to be fixed. I could be wrong but I need a BIOS update, I guess.
Any help to this LITTLE issue, please? I'm open to your helpful and informative suggestions, etc.
