    So much tragedy. I feel bad for everyone involved.

    edit

    sigh

    I'll try to help without putting too much effort into it. I would strongly recommend getting a Xbox 360 controller for windows. You won't have any problems with games not recognizing the controller if the game offers controller support.

    So basically then, the controller we have brought is a load of crap and won't work, so i will have to buy him a new one?

    Just buy a wired 360 pad. And throw the game away as well.

    It would be easier in the long run to just get the Xbox controller. It requires no setup at all.

    Is this your pad?

    http://www.game.co.uk/en/gameware-pc-usb-vibration-control-pad-73021

    It does say it has a digital AND analogue mode so see if you have it set right. If you do and it still doesn't pick it up you have 2 choices.

    1. As already stated, a 360 controller. It is the official standard controller for windows to and everyone 100% supports so when looking at PC controllers it really is the best choice so will probably be the option to go for (if you go wireless remember you will need a wireless USB adapter).

    2. A key mapper to map mouse and keyboard to the controller. Not ideal, especially for FPS like Aliens but they do work. Pinnacle is a good that costs just over a tenner but there are free ones.

    Hope that helps.

    Otherwise, just apply some thermal paste to the connectors.

    You could also try an XInput emulator.

    edit: Basically what bad09 linked to in his second post.
