  1. Controllers not working?


    Recently my DirectInput controllers just stopped working natively. The only way I can get them to function is by using steam to configure them as Xinput (Xbox One). It seems as they are detected, but non-steam games do not detect them. I am using Nintendo Pro Controllers, and a Playstation 4 Controller. I brang these to my friends house, and they worked completely fine on the same game. It seems something is not functioning. Help?

    The tutorials provided are just a list of troubleshooting steps. Use only the steps which apply to you.

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.

    Fan control for 4870X2 broken in 1.17

    Fixed fan controls yes. Annoying profiles yes. Buggy code yes.

    I'd rather just set it and forget it as the feature list of RBE suggested it was capable of doing.

    Hi Ella,

    To adjust the brightness, see the steps below:

    • Go back to Power Options, and tick on the High performance.
    • See if you can adjust the brightness.

    If this not work, we highly suggest that you create an Administrator account, and re-do the steps above.
