Default gamepad won't work w/ new pc [dell dimension; 8300; winXP]

sponsored links
i have this MS sidewinder freestyle pro gamepad and it won't work on my new pc. i've used it on my other computer which was a win98 system. when i load up the software that came w/ the gamepad, it says that it is not compatible w/ my OS (xp). but funny thing is, is that the green LED light on my gamepad lights up indicating that it is on. but that don't seem to matter though. any solutions? i appreciate it.

Go to Control panel -->game controllers there you are..!!
(depending on your settings you may need to go into printers & other hardware 1st (XP) ) THEN do what User-01 said.
