I made a bit of an error, I bought a new joystick to play MS flight Sim X and installed it etc .. it worked quite well but was not very sensitive, another forum suggest a new driver might help the situation.

I went to uninstall the old driver before installing the new one, and made the error. I really don't know why I did it but I went into view devices, right clicked on the icon for the Joystick and removed it :eek:

Is there any way to get it back, I have tried to reinstall the driver but it still does not show on the devices panel and i cannot use it ..

please help

thanks in advance

Hi, you can try a System restore. Windows should bring back the driver. Good luck!

First open device manager select View and ensure there is a tick against show hidden items then if you do not see joystick and do not have a restore point right click on any device and select scan for new hardware. If nothing shows then try going to Action add legacy hardware and follow prompts

Good Stimulating
