Thread: Need driver uninstall help, for I have Satans drivers it seems.

  1. #1

    Default Need driver uninstall help, for I have Satans drivers it seems.

    Long story short, I tried to install a x52 pro saitek stick. The drivers COMPLETELY fubar my system when the stick is plugged in. Skype and firefox won't work, I can't shut down, other programs hang, and other fun things happen. If I uninstall normally it hangs for a few minutes and gives a BSOD.

    Soo I google and google, but doing things like showing hidden devices don't work. If I plug in the joystick the drivers load and cause my system to go nuts. I need a way to uninstall without them being loaded, (which plugging in the stick will do). Any help would be appreciated. This is apparently not a unique problem, and there is one "help" to fix it out there but that was a different issue (aka he could uninstall the drivers).

    Do you have a Restore point before installing?

    Of course not recently, I never thought to with a joystick...

    I don't have a recent one either but had to ask.
    Some have recommended using Revouninstaller(?) for stubborn uninstalls.

    Well I figured out I needed to set an environment variable BEFORE windows would let me see the hidden stuff, and I did so and I removed the offending drivers (there were like 10 of them).

    Reinstall has the same issue, I think it may be Mobo related.

    Yea it was the mobo, something with the newer USB controllers and the joystick not getting along, I had to disable it in bios but now the stick is working. Thanks for the attempt, this has been a 2 day issue to get fixed.
