Is this a USB joystick or is it going in the gameport on the sound card?

You should not have to 'add hardware under joysticks'.
The joystick should be recognized automatically once you plug it in.
And it should show up in Game Controllers without you doing anything special.

Try a different USB port.
Is it connected via an external USB Hub?

If a plugging it into a different USB port does not help, try other USB devices, or try the stick on a different pc.

But, after re-reading your initial post, you do not really state any issue you may have with the stick.

What is it with the stick that does not work?
