I've only recently delved into using my Chillstream gamepad (XInput version) a little more (with Windows XP) and I've noticed that there seems to be a serious inaccuracy with the left analog stick. I'm not sure if this is a manafacturing fault or calibration problem. Unfortunetely due to it's nature I didn't pick it up until quite recently.
With many attempts at re-calibrating, I've noticed that in the calibration tool in Windows shows a very unsmooth circle when turning the analog stick around. Almost as if it was a circle drawn free hand, it's not a perfect circle. This problem would not be such an issue if it was still reaching the top left and top right corners properly; as in some games this is for example causing your character to walk instead of run.
I'd really like to find a solution to this problem as it's made the gamepad rather useless with many games.

Strange, both my ChillStream Controllers (XInput) work perfectly and accurate under XP & Vista.
- Have you tried using a different analog controller? Maybe there is a defect in your ChillStream Controller.
- Maybe your drivers are corrupt. Have you tried re-installing the drivers?
- You could also try to install the "Xbox 360 Controller for PC" Drivers. This did the trick instantly for my controllers. The Microsoft Gaming site offers versions of the Xbox 360 controller drivers for all versions of Windows Vista as well as Windows XP.
2) Select your Device (Controller) > Product (Xbox 360 Controller for Windows) > Operating System (Windows XP) > Language.
3) Click on "Go" and head to the link you've been given and download and install the .exe
