    My Xbox controller broke after updating it on my pc and I feel something should be done...


    I updated my controller firmware on my windows pc and now the firmware is corrupted and I can't use it due to half the inputs not registering. I have gone through many troubleshooting steps and I DIDN'T touch the controller while it was updating. Several
    of my friends have also experienced this issue so its not user error and is a problem with microsoft's software. Although my controller is out of warranty I feel that people with this issue should get their controllers replaced for free. I say this because
    its like if a friend comes over to your house and smashes your controller. You expect them to buy you a new one and make it right. Unless someone on microsofts forum has developed a firmware tool to wipe the firmware off and reinstall it, I feel people should
    get a replacement. If microsoft doesn't want to offer a replacement, then I think I'll just wait till sony brings out dualsense drivers like they did with the dualshock and the wireless adapter.

    :)

    New update destroyed controller

    After contacting them via Twitter @xboxsupport and trying various troubleshoots they told me my controller was in need of a replacement. So I guess the update broke my controller

    Controller won't connect to xbox after using Bluetooth connection to my PC

    Ah probably should have said, yes I have done all that. For my old controller I unsynced then resynced and it worked just fine. For some reason, the problem only happened after I connected it to my pc.

    Can't chat and can't hear others talking when plugging headset into controller

    Both headsets still work for my PC, and yes I have also tried the Skype App on Xbox One, not working either. Skype works on PC though with both headsets.

    I don't recall the problem occurring after any certain update. Definitely not a controller update, haven't done one of those in a while before troubleshooting these problems.

    Геймпад всегда выключен при включении ПК или после перезагрузки | The gamepad is always off when you turn on the PC or after rebooting

    Hi,

    Perhaps this could be a configuration setting on your particular PC? Do you have a PC tower or a laptop? I ask this because this isn't something I'm aware of. My Xbox One controller is connected to my PC via USB cable, and as far as I'm aware, my controller
    comes on as soon as I boot into Windows. I don't have to press the Xbox button to turn on the controller manually.

    As for the Accessories update, this isn't a driver update, it's a firmware update that is a applied directly to the controller. Firmware updates can not be downgraded.
