Windows 7 when connecting G25 Wheel

Mar 28, 2009
I bought a G25 Wheel to use in my system:
AMD Phenom 9850
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260
Sounblaster X-Fi
Lots and lots of HD
Razer Diamondback
Saitek Eclipse

Ive got a dualboot system: Windows 7 and Windows XP Pro

The wheel works flawless in XP but there was some problems installing it in windows 7 (known problem) that I solved.

Now, the only problem remaining is that GTRE/RACE 07/STCC wont start when the wheel is connected... It hangs with a black screen just before going to the main menu. Got to ctrl-alt- del and start task manager Wich report that GTRE has stopped responding. Ive also tried starting it without the wheel and plugging it in later but as soon as i connect the wheel the game hangs (stops responding).
Any advice?

It worked fine here on build 7000 32bit and now on RC 64-bit. Did you install the latest Logitech Gaming Software V5.04?

Maybe ill simply have to reinstall.. either game or win7 (RC this time...) This was what i did not want to do... its soooo boring and timeconsuming...
Now im trying out different USB-ports... Will report later.

Tried to reinstall race07 and all mods, no change. Changed around with USB.ports, no change. Maybe its logitechs drivers or something else that conflicts with something... I dunno.

This is a long shot, but I had a few issues when the G25 H-shifter was in gear. Other than that, it works perfect in most versions of the W7 up to an including RC1. Hope you get it sorted.

Hi all,

I also had the same problem as you (black screen).

When I installed Steam, I used the compatibility mode "vista." And the launch of Steam, I remember having a window indicating that I should not run the program with compatibility mode.
I installed windows 7 RC just to try so I did not search solutions to this problem.
