Having problems with your Microsoft SideWinder Precision Racing Wheel ?

Brake issues 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 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.

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

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
