I am not familiar with the gamepad itself, as I don't use joysticks much.  I suppose this is kind of a dumb question, but just to clarify: How does your gamepad "disconnect"?  Does it physically disconnect from the end of your computer?

I presume that you've installed the gamepad from the control panel?
What do you mean it disconnects? It doesn't work anymore?
Give us a little details...

I guess, you have one of the Microsoft Sidewinder joypads; at first you should unload the Gameprofiler automatically installed by the driver software, if this doesn't work you should press the "Mode" button several times , then it should work again .
I have experienced this problem as well and I found the solution after several hopeless trys working with another gameport or other soundcard.
