    i recently installed a Philips Rhythmic Edge PSC702 soundcard in my system. When I tried to add a joystick, I ran into problems. When I installed the joystick and went into "Gaming Options" in control panel to test and calibrate, it was like the joystick was posessed! The little crosshair used for calibration kept "twitching" and jumping to the upper left corner, even though i wasn't touching the stick. I figured, "Hey, the stick cost 3.99 at OfficeMax, it's probably just cheap and doesn't work with this card" (it did work with my old soundcard) Today I bought a gamepad (admittedly, another cheapie... Laing "PC SuperPad"...but it came bundled with two good games!) I had the same problem with this pad, and it started acting like buttons were being pushed, even though, again, i wasn't touching the pad. I have the latest drivers for the soundcard and, supposedly, for the controller. Anyone else heard of this problem and possible solutions?
    Thanks!
