Game Pad Buttons Appear Black Instead of Yellow During Test

ID: Q175161

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft SideWinder game pad, version 1.0
  • Microsoft SideWinder Game Device software version 2.0


When you test the SideWinder game pad in the Game Controllers tool in Control Panel, the directional pad and buttons appear black instead of yellow.


This problem occurs if your video display driver conflicts with the SideWinder Game Device software.


Contact your video card manufacturer for an updated version of your display driver.


This problem has been reported with the Matrox Millennium video adapter using driver version and earlier. Updating to a later Matrox Millennium display driver corrects this problem.
