This is a bit of a toughie.
My friend likes playing Stepmania, a dance mat game. We've rigged up a 8 player version (using 8 USB mats). It works nice at my house, my office and another person's house. No problems whatsoever.
However, when we set it up at my friend's house sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. We have tried different computers (all XP SP2), different USB dance mats, different hubs.
I have now tried a UPS and grounded one of the dance mats internally.
(AS you can see, I'm thinking it must be environmental. The UPS was to rule out the power supply and the internal ground was to stop the mats internal wiring acting like an aerial.)
I am now hoping it's a driver problem. The dance mats are picked up by windows internal game controllers sometimes, but won't acknowledge that a buton has been pressed. Sometimes it won't detect a device plugged in and sometimes it worls fine. The timings seem completely random.
This is driving me nuts.....any help much apprciated
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
