I purchased a barebones computer and it works great!
I want to use an old steering wheel with the racing car games (old), but this is a 15 pin socket. The Motherboard has a 9 pin game socket. I installed an old sound card which has a 15 pin socket and plugged in. Plug and play installed the hardware and software and said that the device was ready to use.
Steering wheel did not work!
I opened systems manager, hardware, and saw a yellow question mark against the "game port for thrustmaster acm.
I right clicked, selected properties and this informs me that "this device cannot find enough free resources that it can use (Code 12)."
Clicking on the Resource tab, set configuration manually it shows the I/O range as 0201 - 0201 and that this is in conflict with Motherboard resources and standard game port.
Selecting the next I/O 0203 - 0203 brings up conflict with Motherboard resources as does the next I/O 0205 - 0205. The next one 0207 - 0207 is the same conflict as the first and then the cycle of options reverts to 0201 - 0201
I can disable the standard game port but when I go to Device Manager, View, Resource by Type, Input/Output there is no relevant I/O motherboard resource in the range 0201 - 0207 shown!!
Can anybody help!
I have an ASUS M4A88T-M/USB3 motherboard
AMD Phenom II X2 560 Processor
Windows XP Professional SP3 operating system
Thrustmaster grandprix 1 steering wheel
The Sound card has no name.
