Yeah, I have a few 3D consoles questions to ask. I know I've been posting too much in these recent days, but I really want to ask this question.
(1) What is the resolution of output of Nintendo 64 and Nintendo Gamecube? Or are they not fixed? (Anyway, it seems to be 320*240 for Nintendo 64 and 640*480 for Nintendo Gamecube.)
(2) My Gamecube controllers - well how do I describe them?
Two of them have problems with their C-sticks: they are detcted to turn to one direction even if I am not touching it and they automatically turn the SSBM game menu right, and turns the camera of Kirby Air Ride / Super Mario Sunshine and spins Luigi in Luigi's Mansion and turn the menus in StarFox Adventures and mess up in the bios.....
So, the question is, how to fix the problem? I don't want to press X+Y+START for 3 secs everytime! In addition, if I use C again, the problem will come back automatically as I release C stick.

1) I think the N64 and GameCube both use 640x480. But I read that some GameCube games can run under a resolution of 1920x1080 on some TVs or something...
2) No idea what you can do to fix that... Are they controllers from Nintendo or are they third-party controllers? I have one Nintendo and one third-party controller, and I sometimes have problems with the 3rd party one, but no problems with the one from Nintendo at all.
It sounds like the 'default' alignment on your c-sticks has been knackered, either by misuse, or by faulty manufacturing. I can only suggest you contact the manufacturer (which is why Blueberry Pie asked if they were third-party or not, as they have a habit of breaking more often). If it's Nintendo then you may still be covered on the warranty, and if not then you should be able to send them to Nintendo for repair at a cost.
Alternatively, buy new control pads... official Nintendo ones if possible. They tend to last longer.
There is probably some homebrew fix-it available, but it would probably involve unscrewing the controller casing, cleaning bits, fiddling with something delicate, and... in the end... finding a piece left over once it's all been screwed back together.
So I say leave it to the manufacturer.
Edit: Oh yeah, and I don't think you've been posting too much. Always welcome here, etc.

blueberry: Thanks. That means I can't run my Gamecube on my monitor under 1024*768... That fine since re-sized bitmaps always look blurry or something.
Fryguy: All of the 4 controllers are officially from Nintendo. However, how can I send them back to Nintendo? I live in Hong Kong where Nintendo doesn't have a office here, and so which office should I send my controller to?
and yes, it should be due to misuse that my people "stacked" them so that 2 of the C-sticks were pushed to one direction while not in use.... and thus the problem.
(I really haven't posted too much? Then that's fine!)
INTV: A year before, that's my issue. Now, they've gone worse.

My Control stick's allignment on one of my (official, btw) controllers is stuffed, too. Its alright about half the time, so I just use it as my not often used 4th controller. I could send it back, but whatever.

Question (1)'s answer is: 640*480, ALWAYS 640*480 if you use the Component Video Cable (DOL-009). Same goes to the D-terminal Video Cable (DOL-010) (my monitor told me - I checked its menu) and maybe (DOL-013). But what if you choose to ouput with an A/V cable?
Questions (2) and (3) will not be asked anymore once I get Revolution and if it doesn't use the GC controller.
(Hardware code list) SNS-008 A/V Cable DOL-001 Nintendo Gamecube with digital port and analog port DOL-009 D-Terminal Video Cable DOL-010 Component Video Cable DOL-013 RGB Cable DOL-101 Nintendo Gamecube with no digital port, only the analog port is present. Nintendo.com explains that less than 1% of GC users use this cable ---- And I'm among those 1% !?
