Hi,

I've a problem with a steering wheel :-

WinXP SP2, Thrustmaster Ferrari Forcefeedback Steering Wheel, latest drivers from Thrustmaster (2006_FFD_1.exe)

All buttons, POV hat, Pedals and FFB tests are ok and functioning perfectly at all stages.

The Steering axis (turn wheel left and right) however is 'jammed in a right turn' and does not budge ever.

Have tried changing ID's with JoyID - no change

Have tried all older drivers and Thrustmapper utility - same result, everything 100% except left/right steering axes

Have tried installing it manually as 2 button 4 axes etc - buttons and pedal axis ok, steering axis rammed bottom right

Have unticked 'Allow computer to power device etc etc' on Device Manager > USB ports n  hubs > USB Root Hub , all of them - no change

Have tried multiple USB ports - no change

Have rebooted/disconnect/reconnect/shake-violently etc umpteen times - no change :(

The S/Wheel works on another computer perfectly.

Any thoughts/ideas?

Have you uninstalled and reinstalled the usb ports in device manager.
What motherboard is in the computer, as it works on another computer there is no doubt its a hardware problem on the motherboard or a driver issue in the usb ports/ motherboard chipset.
