This is the right spot for your problem.
That could be a mechanical problem witht the little joystick but I don't think it's likely. Have a look in your manual for any tips on cleaning it.
Check in Control Panel under 'Mouse' or possibly 'Game Controllers' to see if the correct pointing device is selected (there may be a pull-down menu of choices). Double-click 'System' to open the 'System Properties' window and select the 'Hardware' tab, then click 'Device Manager'. What is listed under 'Mice and other pointing devices'? Does anything have a yellow symbol with a '!' in it?
Reinstalling the joystick does not mean doing this literally, it means deleting the joystick from the Device Manager and then rebooting Windows. When Windows loads it will (hopefully) find the joystick and re-install the drivers. This often fixes problem devices. Give that a go.
