Ok I recently figured out my SB Live is the source of horrible problems on my Via chipset (but that's another story for another day)

So anyway, I decided to yank it out, and give my onboard audio a whirl, the great Realtek AC'97 6-channel whatever-ma-bob. So after finding some updated drivers, the sound seems to be working correctly, and quite decently (using 4-channel at the moment). Anyway my next step was to set up my Gravis Gamepad Pro. I have the newest Gravis drivers and everything, but I don't think that matters, because in the Device Manager there is no Gameport installed. I tried to install the default Windows GamePort, but that didn't seem to cut it (it can't configure itself properly, and I assigned some resources and whatnot to it, but the Gamepad still couldn't be recognized.)

Anyway I guess my question is if anyone knows how to set this thing up, there doesn't appear to be anything on the MSI/Realtek websites to install the Gameport, and nothing on the CD. There must be a way somehow, I just haven't discovered it yet. If someone could point me in the right direction I would be most appreciative. Thanks a lot
It could be disabled in your BIOS. Go into your BIOS and make shure these things are enabled:

AC 97 Audio
Game Port Address
Midi Port Address

Hopefully that is your problem. Good Luck.
Wow, did I ever not think to look in there. Gamepad is 100% functional now, you just made my day, thanks a million.
