hi

Iv had this problem for weeks now and cant seem to find a sloution anywhere!!!

I am trying to install an Xbox 360 controller on my computer but I get the lovely message:

"Your gameport or gameport drivers are not properly configured. Please consult the device manager."

I have downloaded the xbox controller driver from Microsoft (im running XP -SP3) so "Xbox360_32Eng.exe"

The device manager shows that there are no gameports installed under sound, video, and game controllers.

I then downloaded and installed the latest sound card driver for the motherboard, (ECS 945GCT-M2 (V1.0) IDT High Definition Audio Driver 0.40)

Again The device manager shows that there are no gameports installed under sound, video, and game controllers.

and Im thinking that I just need a gameport to be installed???? is this true??? i cant seem to find any anywhere!!!!!

many thanks if anyone has the answer or who has been through a similar problem, any small piece of advice will do!!!

Well I have an Xbox 360 with 3 controllers that none work with a PC. (one of the original ones) Maybe they are shipping now with controllers that work on both!

thanks, looks like im gonna have to buy a controller then...... but the real issue is the fact i can add ANY controllers without the message "Your gameport or gameport drivers are not properly configured. Please consult the device manager" and there is no gameport installed (virtual or not)......
