i've just bought an old Wingman Force joystick (the big grey one) from eBay and i'm having big problems getting it to work on XP. whenever i plug it into my USB the PC blue screens and restarts.
the joystick works fine in windows safe mode. from this i'm assuming it's a conflict with another hardware driver or software that runs out of safe mode. to check i created a brand new user on my PC. the PC still restarts when the joystick is plugged in. i've also checked on another windows XP computer and that restarts when i plug it in too.
the BSOD error is MULTIPLE_IRP_COMPLETE_REQUESTS. i've found lots of people who have recieved the same error message but for different things.
i also have a Logitech keyboard/mouse set, a driving force wheel and an Attack 3 joystick, so could these all cause conflicts with the drivers? i also thought the problem could be down to my profiler version, which was 4.60. i downgraded to 4.3 but this didn't fix the problem. despite what i've read the joystick was detected in 4.60 anyway. i've now tried 4.50 and that doesn't work either
i've heard about this joystick conflicting with Teamspeak software and codecs. i had teamspeak already installed on my PC, so could this be causing the problems?
here are my PC specs:
ASUS A8N32-SLi Deluxe Mobo
AMD Athlon 64x2 4200+
2Gb Corsair DDR400 RAM
320Gb Seagate SATA2 HDD
Gainward 512Mb Geforce 7900GS
XP SP2 (OEM version)
also have AC'97 audio
thanks for any help you can give me.
