How can I stop getting BSoDs when using MotionInJoy?

  • How can I stop getting BSoDs when using MotionInJoy? Aubergine

    I've been using MotionInJoy for quite a while in order to use my PS3's controller as a gamepad, but have never been able to overcome a very serious issue I'm having with this setup.

    I never shut my computer down, as I prefer to have it hibernate (I'm on Win7 64-bit, by the way). However, whenever I hibernate my machine with my PS3 controller plugged in after having used it as a gamepad, I am always greeted by a blue screen of death when turning my machine back on. The only way I've found to avoid this so far is to safely turn off the controller and then physically disconnect it from my computer before hibernating.

    There are two main disadvantages to "solving" the problem this way:

    1. It's a hassle.
    2. It's something you can forget to do.

    I'm looking for a proper solution, where this issue would be resolved permanently without the requirement of constant fidgeting. I've tried snooping around online but all I could find were some confirmations of the problem back from the end of 2010, so I'm wide open for suggestions.

  • I've been using MotionInJoy's DS3 tool to use my PS3 controllers to play games on my computer (specifically emulators like VBA, since Mother 3 can not be played legitimately in the US). It has worked... my controller's sync with the PS3, but that didn't help, and the batteries are fully charged. I think this might have something to do with the USB connector I'm using (it came with a PSP kit I got many a year ago, and it's worked well with charging my PS3 controllers, so I kept it for that purpose), but does anyone know how to fix this or what might really be causing the problem?

  • I'm having a little trouble earning the 'Hardware Enthusiast' Badge - the only requirement I have left is to launch a game through Big Picture with a controller. I have my PS3 controller connected to my computer and I am running MotioninJoy with it emulating an Xbox 360 controller. What i've tried (any action taken was with the controller) I enabled and navigated Steam Big Picture Launched... here? The games I've tried so far: Team Fortress 2 (partial controller support) Portal (partial support) The Stanley Parable (full controller support) Left 4 Dead 2 (full support)

  • Alright, so for the last 2 days I've been trying to figure out how to solve this issue with Skyrim, Fallout 3, and New Vegas. When starting Skyrim, my mouse responds fine, but my windows cursor also..., my mouse would lag, jitter, shift speeds randomly, and 'slide on'. These things, apart from the windows cursor appearing, also happen in both Fallouts. (I figured they all have the same problem, since... games, generally yielding nothing. There (so far) never occur any issues with my mouse, in windowed mode. Currently, I use an Nvidea GeForce MSI N580GTX Lightning, with Forceware 320.49 I can run ANY

  • I know of two driver/software combos that allow me to use my PS3 controller as a PC gamepad: MotionInJoy - I am using this right now but I have an older version which I was able to install and use without an internet connection. (I've unfortunately lost the instructions on how to do it again so I can only get it to work on my main computer and not my laptop) SIXAXIS - Which is easier to use... is annoying, as some games such as Melty Blood don't seem to recognize some of the input values) So I'm wondering if there is any other PS3 Controller Drivers out there which i can install offline

  • original state. I have never had a config file behave this way and am completely stumped on how to prevent this from happening. I'm fairly sure that if I can get the config file to keep its edits... sounds, but I cannot find anything in the .cfg file to disable these sounds. How can I disable the machine sounds from IC2? My IC2 version is industrialcraft-2_1.116.364-lf, it is the most updated version of IC2 I'm aware of that I can use in my modpack (minecraft version 1.5.2), which is primarily Unhinged (some other mods added) Edit: I have since updated LWJGL incase that was the issue

  • I've been using my PS3 controller as a gamepad quite a bit recently. I'm using MotioninJoy's DS3 tool, with the controller connected with a USB cable to the desktop. Everything is working great, except that each time I close my computer or disconnect the controller it "panics" and turns on my PS3, at which point I have to go and close it. Is there any way to properly close the controller before closing my computer so that it doesn't do that, or perhaps make it forget about the PS3 so that it doesn't turn it on once it starts panicking?

  • screen (when pressing the PS button on the controller), so I'm risking to turn it off, when it's turning off, I hear 3 beeps and it's still on... no matter how long I wait, it still won't turn off. How...I'm having a problem with my FEAR 2 copy on my PS3, the game works just fine, I'm just past chapter 9/10 where I'm looking for Keegan, anyway, when the game is loading on the loading screen, no matter how long I wait, it always freeze on 84% loaded. Now there's one problem, I cannot find any game data to delete, except game saves which I'm not risking to delete when it probably has no relevance

  • hooked up to the PC, while using MotionInJoy to have it emulate an Xbox controller (seeing how there is no way to connect a PS3 controller to a PC and have it function properly out of the box). This causes the game to assume I have an Xbox controller, so when I want to see the control layout, and when the game gives me visual keypress prompts or tries to tell me which key is assigned to what, it uses Xbox button names and visuals. This is naturally quite confusing. Is there any way to have the game show me a PS3 controller's button names and visuals? I wouldn't even know if those visuals

  • It seems my old PS3 fat GPU is dying. I'm getting this stretching glitch problem in some of my games e.g. Killzone 3, Batman Arkham City and GTA 5. Here is my original post where I asked about the problem before: (you don't necessarily need to read it) GTA V graphics bugs on PS3 I'm pretty convinced now that the problem indeed occurs because of my GPU is overheating. I tried putting my PS3... you pick? I'm not too short on money, so I don't have to work with minimal budget. Fixing the machine would be the cheapest, but of course there is the time I would have to use disassembling
