Having problems with your Microsoft SideWinder Precision Racing Wheel ?

I tried to play Need for Speed Underground 2 with my wheel, but in the game the brakes would only release when I pushed the pedal down. Vista says that it is recognizing the brake pedal as a Z axis that seems to be reversed (pushing down deactivates control). I recently upgrade from XP to Vista and never had a problem untill now.

My toshiba laptop (satellite A305-S6872) when started takes me to windows error recovery screen. Gives me the option of start windows normally or launch start up rapair, neither works since it always comes back to the same screen and none of the function keys respond also. Any clue about what could be the problem and how can I solve it, thanks.


This can be caused by several things but you have to get past this point to actually figure it out. It is a software problem ie windows, a program or a virus or even an update that is the cause. If you just installed a program or update then this is ... Toshiba Satellite Laptop

I purchased recently a new (never-used) M5-1 (1370478) classic M-type keyboard, from clickykeyboards.com with a tiny trackball just above the cursor keys. It's great ! but with a string attached... The problem: the trackball moves the cursor on the screen only left-right, and barely, but not altogether zero, up-down. The mechanical parts seem tot function perfectly: good contact between the rubber ball and the ball-bearings and excellent and intricate movements. There's obviously something wrong


Based on my experience with this type of keyboard, most likely, there's a problem with the track ball itself. To isolate the problem, please follow the steps below:1. Try connecting your keyboard into different USB ports of your computer. ... PC Desktops

My monitor isn't showing a picture properly. It is on and working because I can see the picture very dimly and the green power light is on. The frame around the screen was recently damaged - the screen worked fine before this. Could an impact on the screen (although not seeming to damage the screen itself) have stopped it from displaying properly? Is there anything I can do to fix it?


I'm assuming you already tried the brightness adjustment. From your description, the LCD screen itself seems to be intact. The problem seems to be backlighting which could very well have been damaged by a perimeter impact. If ... ViewSonic VA721 17" LCD Monitor

I have a Dell Inspiron 5150 that doesn't seem to post. When I turn it on, the power light comes on, the battery light comes on, I hear the heat sink fan run, but I don't get the Dell splash screen. I tried a different video card. Nothing. I connected to an external monitor. Nothing. I have heard of a lot of problems with this model, but never about the video socket on the motherboard. Is there anything else I could try?


This is a sample of what you can try to do to diagnose a non-starting computer, If these don’t work, realize that most likely a system board (motherboard) has failed or the actual power trim strip above the keyboard has failed. ... Dell Inspiron 5150 Notebook

Gateway 900g Hi I have a Gateway 900g monitor that does not work. All was fine working until one day it just stopped working. It wont switch on or anything. I think it may be the power supply board but I cant seem to find one anywhere and I read that you fix them. If so then how much would that cost and how do I go about it. Regards Adrian


I'm writing this using a recently repaired Gateway 900g. You may be correct about the power supply, as that was the problem on this unit. There was absolutely no response with this unit. No blue LED, no dim display. Nothing.\015\012\0 ... Microsoft ChiMei CMV938D 19" Widescreen LCD Monitor

I had the exact same problem. It's a bad capacitor on your power board. It's most likely the 1000uF 25v one towards the center of the board. I noticed it on mine because the top of the capacitor was pushed out more than usual and it has some residue, ... ViewSonic VX1932WM LCD Monitor
