Right analog stick is drifting!

The controller I got with my 250gb s Xbox has started playing up, the right analog stick drifts even when it has not been touched. I have looked on the web and found this is a common fault, and wondered if anyone had or knows how to fix as some YouTube vids are a bit hard to follow. Many thanks. Paul
