After backing up and restoring my system, I couldn't get
Win 95 to recognize my gravis gamepad.  It worked fine
before but I had the same problem.  I remember having to change the Basic Configuration of the Gameport Joystick but I don't remember the steps I took (I think I changed the basic configuration from 0 to 1 or something like this??)  The joystick works flawlessy under DOS, and I am using an old gravis gamecard.  It has been suggested that I find out what the Joysticks defualt settings are and enter them manually.  How do I find out what the default setting are??

Find out what the joystick's default settings are.  Next go to that entry in the System folder in the Control Panel.  Uncheck USE AUTOMATIC SETTINGS on the resource tab.  Then configure all settings manually.

Hope that helps.
