The Problem: For some reason, when TrackIR is enabled in IL-2, my system locks up and their is an extremely large amount of static coming though my headphones. My only option is to reboot. This happens every time I enable TrackIR in a game but has not happened without it or in the Windows environment.
History: I recently ordered TrackIR through eDimmensional (package deal with glasses), recieved them last Monday. I formatted my drives before installing these items (for other reasons). After installing all OS/driver/patches/peripherals I installed IL-2 (the main reason I bought the TrackIR). The first time I tried to play it with TrackIR I got massive static then auto reboot. System rebooted ok. Thought I'd try something different, so installed the MoH add-on demo. Used TrackIR again and same thing happened only this time I had to manually reboot. Then my system would not reboot - later found the partion was now listed as 'unknown' Reformatted, reinstalled everything as per above (only this time applying the VIA 4in1 patch) but I'm still getting the same lock-ups. I've tried several things including:
- Updated to 1.22 for TrackIR
- Swapping the USB port used from M/B to PCI USB to USB hub.
- Disabling 'unused' ports etc to free up resources.
- Looked for common factors at 'lock-up' - seems totally random.
As you have likely guessed I'm not too technically minded, knowing just enough to get myself into trouble just a little bit more than the average bear! Any help would be greatly appreciated. In the relatively small amount of time that I've actually been able to use TrackIR I can see it's tremendous potential and am keen to get its full use.
