Well Ive Been Messing around with it for a while but now im getting angry.

I have a Microsoft Sidewinder Precision Pro Joystick that I want to use with Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 on My Dell 2400 Series on my Windows 2000 Operating System With My C-Media Sounds Card and my Nvidia 4 MX 440.

I have my sound drivers installed correctly and I inserted the End of the joystick to the gameport and what do i get this.

Controller: Status:
Microsoft Sidewinder 3d Pro "NOT CONNECTED"

Yes I have seen this topic everywhere. But theres a catch.

Its blinks From Status: "Not Connected" to "OK" every 3 seconds.

I need help because I am very needy with this joystick I am not the biggest money maker and do not want to buy another one. If i can get some help on how to fix my problem please say something anything will do.

Looks like you may have a loose connection.
Try the obvious, try this joystick on another machine if possible.

This will give a general idea as to whether it is the hoystick or the machine that is having the bad connection.
