Tech question about Windows 2000

I'm trying to change the Input/Output Range for a device on my system to get a gamepad to properly operate. However, when I go to the device and click on the Resources tab, it has no option to change it (the Use automatic settings checkbox is checked and grayed out, and I can't change it).

Any ideas on how to change it?

Thanks for any help!

Usually gameports are part of the soundcard. So you might want to check the I/O of the soundcard and not the port.


Edit: Wrong forum.

in my experience.. unlike win95/98.. you shouldnt have to change the resources in win2k..

are you sure this is the problem?

It is part of the soundcard. Gravis' support page said the IO has to be between two sets of numbers, and mine aren't, and my gamepad isn't being recognized as being connected. So I'm guessing that's the problem.
