I have installed win95 on 2 systems,  both have B version.  Same hardware.  The one pc gives a different joystick icon than the other(joystick and jstick/controller) In the one setup the joystick dont centre at all.  no matter what i do with centering knobs.   Nothing wrong with joysticks. I use onboard games/sound controllers.  Driver manufac is C-Media Inc and driver file details is vjoy.vxd by microsoft.
How do I center the joystick and why does the icons differ ?help!!!

On the system with the problem, which game controller and joy stick are you using?

I would try this. Go into device manager and scroll down to the joy stick entry and highlight the joy stick and click remove. Now reboot the system.

A. If the system sees the joystick on reboot, windows is trying to use a default driver instead of the one you want. Therefore click cancel and don't let it install any.

B. Next, either from control panel, joy stick icon or from add new hardware, add the joy stick manually and when asked, click have disk and use the driver that came with the joy stick.
