I am not with Laminar Research; just a flight simmer.
What software have you used to setup the Saitek products? You need to "dump" by complete deletion, the Saitek software and install the components through X-Plane. Do the installation before you start a flight.
Have a look at the following link from Michael Brown which can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hU_TuALAlJk Michael specialises in purpose built PCs predominantly for X-Plane. His company is recommended by Laminar Research as the PC supplier in the USA.
Hope this helps
