Salute Pupo

Did you install the drivers for the new joystick, before you plugged it in?

Some joysticks require the software to be installed prior to plugging in the hardware for the first time.

Did you try calibrating?

Did you go through the process of 'Add new hardware' on the computer?

Suggest uninstall the drivers for the new joystick, (also the ones for the old one) a restart of the computer, reinstall of the drivers for the new joystick, restart, then plug in the new joystick. If you don't get the 'add new hardware' prompt, you might need to do this manually.

Then calibrate.

i've tired that.

may i haver deleted some obsvure genral driver for all game pads/joysticks: does such a thing exists?

the installing process of the new joystick riquire for the joystick to be pluged first: the instler wont start until then.

Cant calibrate, no hrsware appers in the gamepad/joysticks on control panel

i've tried that once but the joystick always appered as off, even knowing it was on.

thank you for such a fast response

We're getting ahead of ourselves here. Which joystick is the broken one and what did you buy to replace it? What OS are you using?
