sidewinder precision racing wheel

By friendly5755 ·
when tring to load the wheel it says not connected. we went into the system files and the root hub has a yellow mark on it. We got the drivers for the host to load but not the root. It is a usb port game, (plug and play).

What version of Windows do you have?

Windows 95 has LIMITED USB support.

A yellow ? or ! on the root hub usually signifies that the correct drivers are not properly installed.

You can start by removing the USB ports and root hub from devicemanager.
Re-boot, and see if Windows will correct the driver issue on it's own.

If that does not correct the problem, please add a comment to your post with the following details:

Version of Windows (System Properties)
Make and model of PC or motherboard.
Amount of RAM installed.

Also, verify in BIOS settings that the USB ports are enabled.

yes, TheChas can help you fix this. I am willing to bet your are running windows 98 (be sure you tell him exactly, by right-clicking on the My Computer icon, then choose properies and write down all three rows of info under 'System'.
it will not betoo hard to fix. if you are adventuresome go to support.microsoft.com and search using 'win98 usb troubleshooting' then look for your (excellently described) yellow bang symptom...good luck you will be racing soon...
