To resolve the problem, you’ll need to run a Registry Editor (RegEdit) script to remove the entries in the Windows registry, and then recalibrate the data range.
Do the following to recalibrate your controller axes on Windows 7, 8, 8.1 or 10:
- Locate your controller in the table below and download the .zip file and extract the contents using any file extraction software of your choice.
NOTE: We recommend extracting the files to the desktop.

- Unplug the controller USB cable from your computer.
