Sounds like the wiring (most likely the ground wiring) that is bad, plug in on your windows machine and open up notepad and then try the joystick and all the buttons. Since it emulates the keyboard you should see characters or ctrl/alt and so on for all directions and buttonpresses. If you do not get that for all then the wiring is probably off somewhere in the chain.
