Hey guys and gals.
I have seen a lot of troubleshooting procedures out there to find the missing Mouse and Keyboard settings tabs, ranging from removing and reinstalling software to renaming files, and... what a nightmare! Fortunately, I discovered an unusual technique that got my SetPoint 4.72 back on track.
I recently purchased FEAR for my Vista 64-bit system and was getting terrible framerates using two 9600GT's. The solution that boosted those framerates was to disable unused Human Interface Devices (HID) devices. The forum post I found it in gave an easy-to-follow tutorial, and my framerates are now a lot better (I didn't know 300+ fps was possible!). However, I realized that disabling certain HID's actually disables the tabs in SetPoint, too.
This is worth a shot if you're having the same issues as myself.
1. Go to the Device Manager.
2. Click Human Interface Devices.
3. For my system, any devices that are disabled have the default icon paired with a blue down-facing arrow. If you right-click on the devices and the Enable option appears in the list, that device is disabled.
4. Reenable all of them and see if your Mouse and Keyboard settings reappaear. If they do, and you have certain HID's disabled for a reason, you can disable them one-by-one and see which ones effect the SetPoint tabs.
I know the no-tabs issue can be a real pain in the butt, but hopefully this will resolve the issue for some of you.
